Kim
In case you haven’t heard, the most important baby of our time has been born. That’s right, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have bestowed upon the huddled masses their perfectly combined genes in the form of one blessed bundle of joy – a beautiful baby girl named North West.

Did you expect anything less from these two? Though many outlets had previously reported that the chosen one had been given the name “Kaidence Donda West,” Kim and Kanye went with the much-speculated North instead, and will call their little girl “Nori” as a nickname. Kanye has helpfully explained the unusual name’s orig...

ABC Yanks 'Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution' For 'DWTS' Recaps

May 4th, 2011 9:46am EDT
Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution
Sad news today: Entertainment Weekly's James Hibberd reports that ABC has removed Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution from its May schedule. The series, which pulled in 5 million viewers with its last scheduled airing (only the second episode of its season!), will be replaced by more Dancing With The Stars recap shows.

5 million viewers isn't stellar, but it certainly wasn't anything to sneeze at. To give you an idea of where those figures fall, let's consult last night's broadcast ratings: 5 million is more than any of the new episodes NBC aired last night (Chuck saw 4.12, The Event 4.02 an...

The Return Of 'Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution'

April 13th, 2011 2:31pm EDT
Food Revolution
Call it "Jamie Oliver vs. the Los Angeles Unified School District."

Last year, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution was honestly educational, compelling television. In last night's premiere, the drama surrounding the show nearly threatened to overshadow the needed message. Or was that a message of its own?

I'm not what you would call a "health nut." My general attitude toward food is that I don't want to become someone who has to think so much about what I'm eating that I don't enjoy it anymore. And I think this is hilarious. So I'm not writing this entry to rhapsodize about the celebrit...

'Bachelor' Bachelorettes Let Loose On Season Villain Michelle Money – Reality TV Highlights, March 6-12, 2011

March 12th, 2011 3:09pm EST
Michelle Money,
“Bachelor” fans wait all season for the truth to spill out during each season’s Women Tell All special, and this season’s special was no exception; although, the truth that came out may not have been the truth viewers were expecting.

Yes, the women came down hard on Michelle Money for all the cruel things she said during the season, but it wasn’t really the things she said that bothered them; what bothered the women was that the Michelle that got to know in the house was NOTHING like the woman they saw in episodes. They felt confused by her two personalities and were beyond hurt that she w...

Who Is Jamie Oliver?

August 17th, 2010 3:05pm EDT
Jamie Oliver
Jamie Oliver is a name that most chefs in the industry are familiar with. He makes rustic and down-to-earth food with his Cooking Channel show "Jamie at Home" and he does it with a purpose. Most of his dishes utilize ingredients from the garden at his home, and they are things anyone could be comfortable making. However, Jamie is much more famous in the states for several other revolutions in the hospitality industry, such as ABC's "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution", that deserve a closer look.

Our Favorite Food Nerds

Wylie Dufresne
The food world is vast and immense, and there are many things we can learn from those that are leading the way. Food nerds make up a small portion of this group of culinary contributors, but what they add to the industry is a way to think about food that the world has never really, truly touched on before. It is a combination of dedication, exploration, and digestion that brings out the “king” in cooking.

The Cooking Channel Makes Foodies Drool

Mario Batali
Sure, Food Network was all fine and good...until the smut of reality TV descended like a cloud of smog. So Scripps Network had the idea to give foodies what they were looking for: more time in the kitchen with talented chefs using unique ingredients from around the world. Thus, The Cooking Channel.

Old School

Food Network fans will recognize some shows like Everyday Italian, Tyler's Ultimate and even Emeril Live, but the new lineup for The Cooking Channel boasts some new hosts and old school hosts. For those of us who remember Food Network when it began in 1996, there are several extremel...

Ricky Gervais: 'They Know Why They're Fat And They Like It'

April 1st, 2010 2:53pm EDT
Ricky Gervais
Ricky Gervais is convinced celebrity chef Jamie Oliver's new U.S. TV show about healthy eating is doomed to fail - because Americans enjoy eating foods that make them fat.

Oliver has campaigned for years against obesity and unhealthy eating in his native U.K., and now he's attempting to curb poor diet habits with his new U.S. series, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution.

Comedian Gervais admires Oliver's ambition, but he's certain the chef's new show will flop.

The Office creator says, "He's (Oliver's) a friend of mine and a fellow Brit. He's over here (in the U.S.) trying to educate fat pe...
