She reportedly features in 12 episodes of the Prince Street podcast which is hosted by food journalist Howie Kahn, according to PageSix.com.

Actress Maggie Q is getting serous about her wedding plans, insisting her big day will be a small affair.
The Divergent star is engaged to wed actor Dylan McDermott and insists their nuptials won't be a big Hollywood affair.
The private actress tells People, "I want intimacy, and I want it small. I don’t like big affairs. I don’t really even love weddings. They feel like an event to me, and I’m not really big on events."
And the couple could be heading overseas to tie the knot, with Q, real name Maggie Quigley, adding, "I like exotic, not necessarily beachy... I think travelling is in order."

Following on from the events of 'Divergent', the mysterious government has discovered a magical maguffin which had the power to create the idyllic future they have always hoped to fulfil. The only catch, is that it requires a Divergent in order to activate it. As the government begins testing any and all Divergents they can find, Tris (Shailene Woodley) is already on the run, and meets up with an army of secret, hidden Divergents. When it is revealed that she may be the only one to truly activate the maguffin, the Divergents rise up as an Insurgency, and take the fight to the government that has oppressed them for too long.

Teens tackle yet another dystopian future in this well-made but derivative franchise-launcher. Filmmaker Neil Burger is more interested in whizzy visuals and a thorny plot to pay much attention to the characters or larger underlying themes, which leaves the film feeling eerily superficial. So while the film is relatively entertaining, it ultimately feels rather pointless.
The story's set after a war has reduced Chicago to a walled-in enclave of people divided into five stabilising factions: charitable Abnegation, peaceful Amity, honest Candor, defending Dauntless and brainy Erudite. Tris (Shailene Woodley) was born to parents (Ashley Judd and Tony Goldwyn) who are leaders in Abnegation, but when time comes for her to select her own path she discovers that she's Divergent, a cross-faction state that threatens those in power. So she chooses to join Dauntless, entering intense physical training under the tutelage of sexy hunk Four (Theo James) and harsh hunk Eric (Jai Courtney). then Dauntless' soldiers get caught up in a power struggle as Erudite leader Jeanine (Kate Winslet) plots to take governmental responsibilities from Abnegation.
All of this scene-setting takes about half of the film's running time, and it's frankly not very exciting. Burger makes sure it looks fantastic, with seamless visual effects, impressive stunt work and flashy action sequences, but the character drama takes longer to kick off. And there's also the problem that it essentially feels like a cross between The Hunger Games and Harry Potter as an unusually gifted teen takes on a controlling society.

Alec Baldwin has urged the Taiwanese government to halt plans to inject Beagle puppies with rabies.
The Emmy Award-winning '30 Rock' actor is the latest celebrity to denounce proposed vaccine experiments on dogs following an outbreak of the disease in the country.
In a letter to Taiwan's minister of the council of agriculture, Chen Bao-ji, he wrote: ''I have two dogs myself and want them to be safe from the threat of rabies, so I understand your concern about the recent rabies outbreak in Taiwan and your desire to protect the city's animals and humans. But infecting beagle puppies with this new strain of rabies isn't the answer, since we already know that all variants can infect any warm-blooded animals.
