Afternoon Delight: Cat Cora to guest star on “Top Chef,” Megan Fox’s animal obsession

Happy birthday to Joan Jett! The out rocker turns 53 today.

Speaking of out rockers, Jessie J is out of this world. Well, at least her outfit is. I wonder if her space bodysuit comes in size “large.”

J looks like a member of Jem and The Holograms. Speaking of my favorite cartoon rock star from the 1980, I just received a review copy of Jem and The Hologram The Truly Outrageous Complete Series. The 11-disc set includes interviews with the cast (I’m not kidding), original toy commercials, animated storyboards and more. Enjoy over 25 hours of animated magic and over the top make up while you try to figure out why you were so obsessed with this damn cartoon.

Lindsay Lohan has been hired by German designer Philipp Plein to appear in his spring ad campaign. I can’t wait to see the photos!

Don’t forget to tune in to Prime Suspect tonight. (I’ll be flipping back and forth between Grey’s Anatomy.) The new cop drama stars Maria Bello as a cop running around, beating people up, flashing her badge and then running around some more. The show sounds exhausting. Prime Suspect premieres at 10 p.m. on NBC.

Megan Fox is obsessed with animals. (Join the club.) In an interview with HitFix, Fox revealed she’s crazy about adopting needy pets. Fox said, “I can’t drive by an animal adoption and not stop and take someone home with me, something home with me. So, I adopt them like crazy. Brian [Austin Green] won’t let me stop anymore at shelters or at adoptions because I always leave with at least one animal because I feel like I can find them parents [or] homes and at least I feel like I know that they’re safe. I have to be careful with that. I could be one of those people on ‘Animal Hoarders’ if I’m not careful.” I’m the exact same way and because of that I have one too many dogs. (Sorry, Francine Fishpaw McManus.)

Bravo’s hit series Top Chef has featured many lesbian culinary masters on the show, from Susan Feniger to Jamie Lauren. In the show’s upcoming ninth season, watch for celebrity guests stars Charlize Theron, Patti LaBelle and Iron Chef Cat Cora.  Top Chef Season 9 premieres on November 2.

Monster director Patty Jenkins might be taking on the action film Thor 2. If the deal goes through, Jenkins, who has directed episodes of The Killing and Arrested Development, would team up with Natalie Portman as she reprises her leading lady role of Jane Foster. Thor 2 is expected to hit theaters July 2013.

This morning, The Dinah’s founder, Mariah Hanson, announced that she will be blogging for The Huffington Post. I look forward to reading her stuff!

Tonight, Grey’s Anatomy’s Ellen Pompeo stops by Jimmy Kimmel Live, tomorrow night Maya Rudolph will appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and on Monday, September 26, Wanda Sykes will visit The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Two hysterical lesbians for the price of one!
