Bourdain Suggests Bravo Give the Dirty Oil Money Back

CNN host and occasional Top Chef judge Anthony Bourdain suggested to Andy Cohen, Bravo's Executive Vice President, that the network give back the $200,000 Louisiana is giving Top Chef. He tweeted: "Dear @BravoAndy Maybe give the 200G back to Louisiana? Would be a nice thing to do." The money came from a recovery fund that oil giant BP set up after 2010's Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Bourdain followed up: "TC is not doing NOLA a favor by shooting there. NOLA does world a favor by existing." Bourdain suggested Bravo send the money to Café Reconcile, a nonprofit restaurant and training center.
