FANG ADVANCES ON ‘CHOPPED’

Kathy Fang of Fang restaurant in The City is making her mark on the Food Network. Last week on “Chopped: Beat Bobby Flay,” she beat three competitors and is the only woman in the running to go up against Flay — and get the chance to prepare a signature dish (and earn $40,000).

Cooking for judges Flay, Alex Guarnaschelli and Aarón Sánchez, Fang became the episode’s champion by making lobster cakes in the appetizer round, anise-spiced goat stew with polenta for the main course, and a no=bake cheesecake for dessert.

Tune in on Nov. 10 for her next appearance. If she wins, she could give Flay (who admitted Chinese food wasn’t his specialty!) a run for the money.

Among, perhaps, the lesser things for which the late Janet Reno, the first female attorney general, will be remembered, is Will Ferrell’s “Saturday Night Live” impression of her dancing; she famously appeared on the show, on her last day office in 2001, doing the twist with Ferrell — both in signature blue dresses. ,,, Breast cancer survivor Shannen Doherty offers support and a bit of advice for Michael Bublé, who recently shared that his 3-year-old son Noah is battling cancer: “Just trust in your doctors,” she said. “Make sure you have amazing doctors.” … In the wake of the big news of the breakup of Brangelina and continued family difficulties, Brad Pitt is slated to beat Angelina Jolie to the red carpet by doing promotion for his upcoming movie “Allied.”
