Two women have been charged in the case of a former contestant on Bravo's "Top Chef" who said she was beaten by attackers yelling anti-gay slurs over Labor Day weekend.

Nassau County, N.Y., police announced the arrests on Saturday after Josie Smith-Malave, who was featured on the second season of the reality show, had accused investigators last week of not pursuing her case vigorously.

Smith-Malave, who is openly lesbian, said she and three other women were assaulted after being told to leave a Sea Cliff bar Sept. 1, according to police.
