OK, this has been bugging me ever since I saw the episode (and you're gonna think I'm crazy).
After Carla served her dish at the benefit, this woman commented that although she loved Carla, she didn't care for the dish:
The moment I saw her, I knew I'd seen her before. After a minute or so, I realized that this was the same woman who delivered that classic line from season 5's Restaurant Wars: "I liked it! It amused my bouche!"
WHO IS THIS WOMAN? Does she work for Bravo? Is she a friend or loved one of Tom or Padma? Is she just a lucky, connected New Yorker who shows up at all the right benefits? I really need to know now!
Dang it if she didn't pop up in another episode, Season 5's Christmas AmFAR Benefit challenge!
Don't know why this eats at me so... who is she!!??
