Morning Brew РFri. July 20: Cat Cora gets inducted to Culinary Hall of Fame, a new single from NiR̩ AllDai

Happy Friday!

I’m heading to L.A. for TCA the next few weeks so Heather Hogan will be your Brew guide. I’ll be badgering people to put more lesbians on TV and to do it right.

Adam Lambert is going to perform on Pretty Little Liars. As if this show couldn’t get gayer.

Archie Panjabi is psyched about her Emmy nomination, and talked about how it had to do with the great writing on The Good Wife.

I felt last season, particularly towards the end, the stuff that [the writers] gave me was emotionally very challenging and taking Kalinda into an area we’ve never been to. As an actress, I was taken out of my comfort zone. We see her being vulnerable, we see her being fearful which are areas we very rarely see in Kalinda. It’s that very challenge that excites me.

We also saw her get really sexy with Jill Flint. Thanks Good Wife writers!

If you are looking for a new summer jam, might I suggest NiRé AllDai‘s “Hella Bad”? She performed at our AfterEllen Hot 100 party earlier this week and brought down the house. NiRé is readying her debut album on Virgin Records for sometime this year, and she’s written songs for Mary J. Blige, Keri Hilson, KeKe Pamer and Demi Lovato.

Congratulations to Cat Cora! She will be the first woman to ever be inducted into the Culinary Hall of Fame. That also makes her the first lesbian. Well deserved!

Brandi Carlile talks about how Bear Creek is the most personal album she’s ever written in this Artist Den video. There’s also lots of her singing those songs and looking good.

Musician Linda Perry doesn’t know who she’s going to vote for yet. “I don’t trust Obama,” she tells a videographer. She’d rather vote for Roseanne. I wonder if her girlfriend Sara Gilbert feels the same way.

I wonder if she’ll join LPAC.
