Next week, Bravo's pop culture pundit and programming executive Andy Cohen hosts a candid gathering of past and present chef'testants,' along with host Padma Lakshmi, Tom Colicchio, Simmons and Ted Allen on the "Top Chef: Watch What Happens Special" (Wed, July 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT). The special features Season 1's winner Harold Dieterle and finalists Lee Anne Wong and Dave Martin; joined by Season 2's winner Ilan Hall, Fan Favorite Sam Talbot, Cliff Crooks and Michael Midgely. Additionally, the first five eliminated chef'testants' from "Top Chef 3 Miami" will join the group to dish over the newest season's good, bad and overcooked.

And don't miss the season finale of "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List" (Tues, July 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT). Griffin has just found out that she is being honored by Irish American Magazine as one of their Top 100 for 2007. Never mind that her mother nominated her for this award, Griffin will take any excuse she can get for a trip to New York. But when Griffin returns home and shows her mother the Irish American award, she starts to feel a hankering for reconnecting with her roots. So, when she's invited by the Irish Tourism Board to visit Dublin she jumps at the chance with team Griffin in tow. While in Ireland, Griffin wants to do a little something in memory of her father.
