Iron Chef Cat Cora at The Paley Center

November 19, the Paley Center for Media hosted an evening with Iron Chef Cat Cora. During an interview with Broadcasting and Cable's Stephanie Robbins, Cora hints at the possibility of a sixth iron chef, but stays vague on the posibility of another installment of The Next Iron Chef. She also talks politics.

The economy isn't the only issue on Cora's mind. As an openly gay woman, she recently participated in protests against California Proposition 8 where she resides in Santa Barbara, Calif. "We believe it should have never been a ballot issue," she says. "Hopefully, we can resolve that issue and everyone can have the same equal rights around the world."
