Last week, the celebrity-chef troublemaker was Lidia Bastianich. This week, it’s chef Alan Harding, the Brooklyn personality, who was perched at the Hot Bird truck for a while and also had his own TV show, Cookin’ in Brooklyn, and who, allegedly, can serve up just about anything but child support. His enraged ex-wife, Leslie Parks, daughter of famed photographer and filmmaker Gordon Parks, says there’s been some shady action involving a real-estate deal, a dodgy lawyer, and a greedy brother. In other words, The Real Housewives emulsified with Top Chef. [NYP]
