On "Chef Wanted," Anne Burrell puts chefs through the toughest interview ever — all for a chance to work in a top restaurant. So what qualities is Anne looking for in the candidates?
"You have to be able to manage a staff and be a teacher," she explains. "You have to be able to manage money, and you have to have a lot of endurance. It is a tough, tough job." She adds that chefs must be confident while still able to take a critique. "Being a chef is about the fine line of your ego versus your humility," she says.
Even if the chef is great, a few things can go wrong in a restaurant that seem small but are important. Anne shared some of her biggest pet peeves. In addition to dirty bathrooms, she says she can't stand menu typos and dirty menus. "That should be pristine," she says.

When you're married to comedian Jerry Seinfeld, it's a given that family dinners might be a little … colorful. Jessica Seinfeld revealed just what goes on at home around the table. "Somebody always gets their feelings hurt," she says. "We tease and we make fun of each other so much, and I feel like people who come to our house are like 'Whoa.' We're a house where you need to have a sense of humor!"

As the author of novels like "A Walk to Remember," "The Notebook," and "The Lucky One," Nicholas Sparks knows how to tug at our heartstrings. But the writer says there was one character he just couldn't bring himself to kill off.
"For 'A Walk to Remember,' I knew all along that Jamie was going to pass away at the end of the book," Sparks says. "I get to the final chapter and I say, 'I can't. She's just too sweet, I can't do it.'" Instead, he left the ending ambiguous for readers to draw their own conclusions.
Sparks is at it again with his latest novel, "The Longest Ride," a double love story that the author conceived in reverse. "I knew exactly how I wanted the reader to feel at the end," he says. "I said, 'Oh wow, if a book ended like that, that would be great!' You kind of work backwards."
Many of Sparks's novels have been adapted for the big screen, and from writing to casting to directing, the author plays a big role. "...Read More »
