    That is just so wrong. Hate to hear that.

      Heard about this from TMZ.com among all places. I hope her and her companions are ok, and I hope they are able to find the people who did this.

        Some people suck. I hope they catch these imbeciles.

            I hate the chicken sh*t crowd mentality. Why can't people just let other people be? The patrons in the restaurant and staff just stood around! That's B.S.! I also bet someone in the bar know some of the rowdies, but of course they're not going to say anything to the police.

            You gotta hope that Karma will be a bit*h to these people.

              Eventually, what goes around comes around.

              That stinks.

              this is a terrible incident and I hope there will be more media coverage of the area.

              But for the life of me, I can't picture who she is. What was the big thing she did on Top Chef last year to jog my memory of which one she was?

                She had the funky haircut and got booted off mostly because her partner of the day did so poorly (both were sent home).

                  all the info [including bios] from seasons 1 & 2 are still on the top chef web site. here's a link to josie's, maybe it'll help jog your memory....

                    Oh thanks, I remember her now! I wasn't a big fan of her cooking during the show but I remember thinking that she seemed like a fun person to hang out with. If I were out having drinks with her, I totally would have helped beat off the gang. But then again, I'm only 140 pounds so maybe not.

                    What was really sad about the story is how everyone else at the bar just watched and didn't at least yell out to say stop.

                2. Chew on That RE: NewSushiFiend Sep 19, 2007 10:07 AM

                  Hmmm...yea, pretty sad. Do you think they knew who she was too?
