Rachel Ray is coming to town!
Yes, she is coming to a television
near you. I really enjoy all her
shows and am anxiously awaiting
her talk show premiere on Monday!
Here is part of an article aol has on Rachel:
In addition to her talk show (185 episodes), she's still churning out 100 episodes for her four Food Network programs, the best-known being 30-Minute Meals. She has a Reader's Digest-published magazine, Every Day With Rachael Ray, that has just gone from bimonthly to monthly. She has a line of knives from Furi and cookware from Anolon (which "I literally designed on a napkin") and even a furniture collection from Laneventure.
This fall she comes out with her 16th cookbook, 2, 4, 6, 8: Great Meals for Couples or Crowds.
Forbes ranked her 81st among the top 100 most powerful celebrities for 2006, Ray's first year making the list. She's the top chef, ahead of Wolfgang Puck, Emeril Lagasse and Mario Batali.
She has become a pop-culture reference. On last week's Nip/Tuck, a character made chicken tetrazzini, saying that her daughter "saw it on Rachael Ray." (Ray calls it "Tremendous Tetrazzini.")
