The network has denied rumors of a cancellation, however, "she’s been secretly told by her bosses at CBS Television that her syndicated cooking and gabfest show will not be renewed because h...

Katie Holmes & Adam Sandler
Adam Sandler and Katie Holmes dropped by the "Rachael Ray" show to promote their new film "Jack And Jill."

In the film, Jack Sadelstein (Sandler) is on top of his game, and has every reason to be thankful: he has a beautiful wife (Holmes), great kids, a gorgeous house in L.A., and a successful job as an advertising executive. Even still, Jack always dreads the coming of Thanksgiving because for him, the holiday only means one thing: a visit from his needy, annoying, passive-aggressive, neurotic, identical twin sister, Jill (also played by Sandler.)

Millions of Americans along the east coast of the U.S. were affected last week as Hurricane Irene tore through their towns and cities, wreaking havoc with high winds & flooding and ultimately cutting off power to nearly six million people for several days.

Anthony Bourdain recently sat down with TV Guide Magazine, and the "No Reservations" star didn't pull any punches when it came to talking about fellow food personalities.

On Paula Deen: "The worst, most dangerous person to America is clearly Paula Deen. She revels in unholy connections with evil corporations and she's proud of the fact that her food is f--king bad for you [...] plus, her food sucks."

On Guy Fieri: "I look at Guy Fieri and I just think, 'Jesus, I'm glad that's not me.'"

On Rachael Ray: "Does she even cook anymore? I don't know why she bothers. To her credit, she never sa...

'Aarti Party's' Indian Menu Brings Food Network Much-Need Diversity

9/11/2010 10:30am EDT
Effervescent, flower-donning "Next Food Network Star" champ Aarti Sequeira kicked off her new cooking program a couple of weeks ago, based off the online show she independently produced pre-Food Network. It's called "Aarti Party," and features dishes inspired by Aarti's Indian roots.

The Mumbai-born Northwestern grad is Food Network's first Asian host since Ming Tsai, whose show "East Meets West" ran on the channel from 1998 to 2003. "Aarti Party" is also Food Network's first show to focus on Indian cuisine, and second to Tsai's to primarily feature Asian food of any kind.

Julia Child
The roots of food culture and the success of a chef's celebrity status finds its genesis with culinary wizard Julia Child. The woman is a legend and a hero in kitchens around the globe, both commercial and private. She is a popular culture icon, quoted and imitated by many, from Dan Aykroyd's portrayal on Saturday Night Live, to Dr. Huxtable liberally applying her well-known accent whilst cooking a turkey on The Cosby Show.

The most recent cinematic shrine to Child, Julie & Julia, reminds cooks and chefs everywhere, man or woman, why they have a inextinguishable passion for food. We...

TV Election Personalities: Giving Fresh Faces To This Election

10/21/2008 11:52am EDT
The View
It's nearing the end of October; do you know whom you're voting for? Most likely, yes, you've known for a while. And, depending on whom you're voting for and whether you watch political news programs, you probably fall into one of a few categories. If you're a die hard McCainiac, you might spend your evenings listening to Bill O'Reilly tell his guests to shut up. If you're an Obama mama, you may tune into Keith Olbermann's incessant barking. If you're for either but want a seemingly nonaffiliated program that maintains some entertainment value, Anderson Cooper might be what you're looking f...

On the latest episode of "The Next Food Network Star," right off the bat Bobby Flay told the contestants that they would be doing a cooking demonstration for the Girl Scout Brownies.

So, Jenn went home last week on "Top Chef," which is sad. She was fun and she seemed dedicated to food and the kitchen. This week, they wasted no time getting into the Quickfire, given that their time limit was 15 minutes. Fifteen minutes is nothing!

Judge for the Quickfire was Art Smith, who is a frequent judge on Food Network's "Iron Chef America." He is also Oprah Winfrey's personal chef and has his own organization called "Common Threads" (which wil...
