Celebrating the Life of Bravo's Top Chef Alum Fatima Ali

Andy Cohen was one of the many in the Bravo family who remembered Fatima Ali after she lost her battle with cancer. The Bravo's Top Chef Season 15 Fan Favorite winner was remembered by her family, Padma Lakshmi and fellow Cheftestants after she passed away Friday, January 25 following a Ewing's sarcoma diagnosis in 2017.

How to Watch

Watch Top Chef Season 21 Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo and next day on Peacock.

The Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host wrote in remembrance of Fatima: "This is very sad news. What a lovely woman."

Padma, who had been by Fatima's side throughout her battle, wrote: "Goodbye lil’ sis. One of our brightest stars has fallen from the sky.... I have no words, but here are some of hers: 'I dream of being better. I dream of being myself again, but I know I’ll never quite be the same, and that’s okay. I know I’ll be different, and, despite the worry that settles into me every time I wake up, I look forward to meeting that woman one day.' #teamfati."
