I have a new interview and new photos of Jenna Dewan to share with you guys. Channing Tatum's wife of almost 3 months and half of Hollywood attended producer Adam Shankman's Rock A Little, Feed A Lot benefit concert held at Club Nokia on September 29, 2009 in Los Angeles, California.
The star-studded event successfully raised over 10.2 million dollars for the charity Feeding America in one night. For those who don't know, Feeding America (formally known as America's Second Harvest) is the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief charity, with network members supplying food to more than 25 million Americans each year.
The benefit concert featured live performances by Sheryl crow, Ben Harper, Joel and Benji Madden from Good Charlotte, "American Idol" alumni Katharine McPhee, Tom Morello, and Johnny Lange and remote performances from One Republic, Miley Cyrus, and Rob Thomas.
The big night also included presenters like Alanis Morisette, Isla Fisher, Gary Shandling, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Applegate, Lance Bass, Nigel Lythgoe, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Arquette, Allison Sweeney, and Jeff Probst from "Survivor", and Jenna presented with Mary Murphy from "So You Think You Can Dance".
Style Critics had this to say about Jen and her outfit for the night...
- ”Looking at Jenna Dewan brightens my day up a bit. Don’t you just love those eyes and that smile? Plus, she wears a multicolored H&M dress to the Rock A Little, Feed Alot benefit concert. She pairs her metallic top with LNA leggings, purple Moschino heels and Loree Rodkin jewelry...Leggings give a whole new edgier feel to this outfit!"
E! News caught up with Jenna at the event and got some scoop on her upcoming appearances in episode 7 and 8 of the new "Melrose Place" reboot. You can read the article in it's entirety below...
Who exactly is the sweet, petite Jenna Dewan calling out on Melrose Place?
"Everyone, listen," Jenna grabbed our mic and whispered at last night's fabulous Rock A Little, Feed A Lot charity event. "I would love to have a bitch-fest with Katie Cassidy [Ella]. I've known Katie for years, so we would have really good chemistry."
Unfortunately for viewers who would die to see that sexy showdown when the newlywed joins the series in episode seven, she's strictly involved with Michael Rady's aspiring Tarantino, Jonah.
But with Ella vying for the affections of the newly engaged Jonah, wouldn't it be the perfect catalyst for the face-off?
Jenna thinks so! "That would be great—let's tell the writers!" Melrose scribes, are you listening?
So, what's the real deal with the "sexy, campy, fun" Ivy League-educated movie exec she'll be playing?
"I come in and spice it up for a few episodes and leave; it's fun," Jenna tells us of her stint on Melrose 2.0. Initial reports had Dewan signed on for just two eps, but she tells us that her multi-episode arc is definitely left open for a future return.
"I've done three so far [and] it's a recurring thing. They could bring me back, they could not. It's one of those things," she says, alluding to the former.
Just as she was about to run off, we tried to get her spill on whether Jonah will be able to resist her "wickedly sexy" ways and stay faithful to fiancée Riley (Jessica Lucas). Needless to say, Jenna stuck to her go-to response: "I spice it up. That's all I can say."
You can checkout some of the new photos of Jenna with friend Lance Bass and Mary Murphy arriving at the event, backstage, and on stage presenting during the show....
And last but not least, an adorable personal photo Jenna took after the Feeding America benefit concert to say goodnight to her Twitter followers...
