Hey, it’s The Buzz - it’s what people are talking about today, Feb.9.

It was a fun—delicious looking run, but Louisville chef Edward Llee’s quest to become Bravo’s “Top Chef” have come to end. Last night Padma told Lee to pack his knives and go. He made it to the final five on season nine of “Top Chef Texas.” Lee did a great job representing Louisville and its tasty cuisine on national television.

Gaga fans are about to go “gaga” again. The lady herself is launching her own social networking site called "Little Monsters."  The site is the pop star's effort at creating a network built around her fan base.  Lady Gaga already has a massive presence on the internet. With 19,000,000 followers, she has more Twitter followers than anyone else.

Speaking of millions, one celebrity is turning his nose up at the possibility of millions of dollars. Russell Brand and Katy Perry’s marriage lasted only 14 months before it bit the dust. There was no pre-nup but Brand says he doesn’t want a bite of his ex’s fortune. TMZ reports Perry was the breadwinner in those 14 months – banking $44,000,000. Russell’s lawyer said in court he wants to walk away with only the money he made during the union.

 Russell may not want the money, but I know a celebrity Perry could throw a few bones to. Gary Busey has filed for bankruptcy, in a move his rep calls a strategy to help the actor and reality star gain a fresh start. According to legal documents, Busey has less than $50,000 in assets and owes at least half a million dollars to creditors.

Is there an athlete that you just can’t stand? There’s a new naughty list out and quarterback Michael Vick is apparently the most disliked athlete!   A new survey published by Forbes found 60 percent of people don't like the Philadelphia Eagles player who is most widely known for his dog fighting conviction. Vick barely edged out golfer Tiger Woods who fell from grace after his cheating scandal.

Some scary stuff on live television - a Denver, Colo. anchor is recovering after a dog bit her in the face. The dog named Max had actually been rescued the day before from an icy pond after he chased a coyote into the water. The news station invited Max, his owner and rescuer to appear on the morning show for an interview segment. It looked like the anchor was going to kiss the pooch when the dog bit her. The anchor is in fair condition. We wish her a speedy recovery.

Let’s end on a sweeter note - dessert lovers pay attention. The McDonald’s Shamrock Shake is headed for wide release.  For the first time, the leprechaun colored milkshake will be available at all of the company's 14,000 US restaurants. The mint flavored shake comes out once a year around Saint Patrick’s Day, but since it launched in 1970, only some restaurants have carried it.  The Shamrock Shake will be available until March 25.
