Fabio Viviani and Carla Hall on 'Watch What Happens: LiveDespite a season full of so many familiar faces with their own fanbases, only one could be named 'Top Chef All Stars' Fan Favorite. Bravo revealed the winner on 'Watch What Happens: Live' (Wednesday, 11PM on Bravo).

The two finalists were "The Italian Stallion" Fabio Viviani and Carla Hall. A few years ago, Viviani beat out Hall for the honor in season five, but Hall, who lasted longer in 'All Stars' than Viviani, won it this season.

While Viviani looked disappointed, Hall was thrilled and grateful. "I really appreciate you voting, for you Tweeting, all of that stuff," she said. "And I need the money, too."

Bethenny Frankel of The Real Housewives of New York City has been rumored to be spinning off into her own show for a while. She'll be appearing on the upcoming season of Real Housewives -- they're already filming in NYC -- but then she'll have her own program after that. It will be about her social life in NYC as well as her career as a natural foods chef. Bethenny has lots of personality and should do well on her own.
