Gail Simmons And Fabio Viviani Blast Paula Deen and Anthony Bourdain On 'Watch What Happens Live' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"Top Chef" alum Gail Simmons and Fabio Viviani played "Plead the Fifth" on "Watch What Happens Live" (Weeknights., 11 p.m. EST on Bravo) Wednesday night and gave some surprisingly candid answers to host Andy Cohen's questions.

When Cohen asked Simmons, the host of "Top Chef: Just Desserts," who the most overrated celebrity chef is right now, she grimaced and said, "Oh, I hate that question," before dropping a bombshell: "I guess I have to say Paula Deen."

Deen has attracted a barrage of criticism since she announced that she has Type 2 diabetes and is promoting a Novo diabetes drug.

In a less controversial, but equally honest "Plead the Fifth" moment, Cohen asked "Top Chef" fan favorite Fabio which judge's opinion he cared least about. He picked frequent guest judge Anthony Bourdain.

He and Bourdain got into it after the "Layover" host was rude about one of Fabio's dishes. Bourdain later apologized for upsetting Fabio, and even said that the Italian was the cheftestant he'd most like to have a drink with after work. Guess those drinks are still on hold for now ...

In a lighter "Plead the Fifth" moment, Fabio was asked who he thought was the hottest female cheftestant on "Top Chef." Without any hesitation, he said "Jen Caroll. Smoking!"

Check out what happened when Grayson and Tom Colicchio went head-to-head at judges' table on the most recent episode of "Top Chef: Texas." Check out "Watch What Happens Live," weeknights at 11 p.m. EST on Bravo.
