For those who love to cook -- and for many who don't -- chef Curtis Stone whets appetites for inventive and entertaining TV. An acclaimed restaurateur who is also a regular on programs such as Take Home Chef, Top Chef Masters, and the Today Show, Stone attracts a legion of hungry fans.
Stone, 41, recently brewed up a new reality series, too, and he's ready to dish. My Kitchen Rules made its debut in January on the Fox Network. He describes the show as "a bunch of celebrity couples who host parties in their homes and try to out-cook each other." Season one features comedian Andrew Dice Clay and his wife, Valerie; Lance Bass of *NSYNC fame and his mother; and singer Brandy and her husband, music producer Ray J, among other familiar faces. Stone lays out a culinary challenge to the teams, attends the resulting party, and then provides an honest critique.
