The organically versatile SmogShopp in Culver City, CA served as the setting for the inaugural Humane Society of the United States’ “veg appetit” fundraiser hosted by Emily Deschanel, Sunday, June 16. The $200/plate event featured vegan fare prepared by Chefs Tal Ronen of Crossroads and Yves Fournier of Andrei’s. “We’re celebrating vegan food, encouraging people to take the steps, and kind of showcasing how incredibly delicious vegan food can be,” Emily said, excited about her participation. “The money goes to support farm animals through the Humane Society.” The proceeds from the event will benefit both the Farm Animal Protection Campaign and the Hollywood Outreach Program.
Emily, a 20-year vegan, just wrapped up an Action Alert for PETA on animal cruelty in the dairy industry. In an interview with HappyCow.com, a site about sustainable and healthy lifestyle choices, talked about raising her son Henry vegan. “I had a very healthy pregnancy and a very healthy child who’s doing incredibly well. He loves eating vegetables and I don’t know a lot of kids we can say that about.”
My son requested seaweed and sweet potato for breakfast.. I must be doing something right..?
She also looks forward to the new book by The Pillars of Health, John Pierre, a long time vegan nutritionist and fitness consultant. “He changed so many peoples’ lives for the better, making them healthier and happier.”

Bones is renewed for a ninth season. Fox announced the early pickup of their flagship drama Tuesday morning during the Television Critics Association press tour.
The shows renewal is contingent upon getting contract renewals for Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz. When asked earlier in the year about a ninth season, in a tweet, Boreanaz stated anything could happen. Showrunner Hart Hanson is confident their negotiations will lead to an agreement.
“After more than 150 episodes, Bones continues to be one of television’s most dynamic and consistent dramas,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, at Fox. “We at Fox, along with millions of zealous fans, look forward to seeing where the incredible creative team takes the series next season.”
I think it ok now to say that Bones is renewed for Season 9. That makes it the longest running show in history – that depends on bones.
Clique Clack catches up with Bones executive producer Stephen Nathan and star David Boreanaz in the Comic Con 2012 Press Room following their panel.
Stephen Nathan tells us Pelant will be a dark cloud over the lives of Booth and Brennan and the staff of the Jeffersonian throughout Season 8. Brennan has now found herself replaying the life of choices her father, Max once had to make. The situation with Brennan will be resolved so she can return to the show cleared of any wrong doing but she will also have to reconcile with Booth. Is love enough?
Where does David Boreanaz draw the intense, complex emotions he portrays in Booth? Will he be directing more episodes this season? Has directing affected the way he approaches his character? How important is it for him to broaden his career by working on other projects? His favorite stand alone episode was the Holloywood film. Will season 8 be his last?
