Josie Smith Malave

Former Top Chef contestant Josie Smith-Malave was attacked in an apparent gay bashing incident over Labor Day weekend.


Smith-Malave, her sister and a friend were asked to leave a bar in Sea Cliff, Long Island. According to Smith-Malave’s lawyer, Yetta Kurland, about 10 “young adults” followed the women, shouted anti-gay epithets, spat on them and then beat them. Kurland is seeking to have the attack investigated as a hate crime.
