I blame myself. I start off a blog with a crush on a reality TV contestant, and the next week she's eliminated, breaking my little heart. You got robbed, Lia. Robbed, I say. In her exit interview she seemed to take it in stride. Still, I just want to hug her. Bye, Lia! Your cuteness will not be forgotten (nor your elimination forgiven) by this "Top Chef" fan.
I suppose I should find someone else to root for. Since I grew up in Dallas, I'll put my money on Tre and Lia's pal Casey. They're both making interesting food, and they seem like good people. Not nearly as cute, though.
