Michael Voltaggio'Top Chef Las Vegas' winner Michael Voltaggio got himself into hot water today when he tweeted that 'Top Chef All-Stars' "is for people that didn't win."

E! Online reports that the offending tweet resulted from several of his followers asking why he wasn't competing on the new edition of the show, which debuted last night.

A minor Twitter war ensued, with Voltaggio spending several more tweets backtracking and complimenting the talents of the all-star lineup.

I wish Dancing With The Stars wouldn't be so political
with their celebrity couples. First, this show nearly
caused a nightmare by voting Bristol & Mark into the
finale of this season, and now they want Sarah Palin's
husband, Todd Palin for next season? If 2012 does mark
the end of the world, I hope it only comes for Sarah's
run as U.S. President. Obama can lick her and her
whole family for another term, all without Dancing.
As for Todd, he's going to be no better than Bristol,
so I think ABC is just waisting their precious time,
and just like Bristol, he'll never win the trophy.
Sorry, Sarinshki, but you'll have to better than that!
