Ruth Reichl's Life to Big Screen?

According to today's newly re-designed New York Post gossip column, Page Six:
Foodie On Film

RUTH Reichl, the celebrated editor of Gourmet, is about to see her life plastered on the big screen. According to gossips at the magazine's October Restaurant Issue party at the Spotted Pig the other night, Avenue Pictures head Cary Brokaw has optioned rights to develop a film out of Reichl's two best-selling memoirs, "Comfort Me With Apples" and "Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise." Reichl will be a producer on the picture being penned by screenwriter Jeremy Leven. We also hear the HBO series that was to be based on "Comfort Me With Apples" is kaput.

as for the HBO thingie, i will miss it, being amongst the "cable-challenged" (read "can't afford it anymore!")...
