The tease features a steamy smooch between the two 'Wives, and according to Gebbia, Brandi is a good kisser.

Richard Blaise To Urinate on 59th Street Bridge
But he’s got a really good reason—we promise. The Top Chef contestant and avid runner has been training for the New York Marathon, and now that race day is almost here, he shared some of his pre-race rituals, which include shaving his legs (“it’s superstition!”), carb loading with rice, grains and protein, and getting to bed early. His main piece of advice? Avoid the 59th Street Bridge. “It’s the only part of the course without spectators,” he explained, “so I—and a few thousand people—probably plan on going potty there [during the marathon].”
