Last week I attended the local Go Red for Women luncheon, since my mom is part of their foundation. She has been a supporter of the event since she had her open heart surgery in Cleveland two years ago. You can read about that here if you like.
This years event had a very special guest, one of my favorite TV personalities, Rachael Ray! I was really excited to get to see her. It ended up being a very short and sweet appearance since it was sweeps week for her morning show. She literally flew in on a private jet, was driven over to the venue, spoke for 20 minutes and flew right back out. She seemed pretty tired (who can blame her!) but she was very funny, articulate and shared some great stories. She also brought her adorable dog Isaboo with her!
Since this was right before Valentines Day, she shared that instead of buying John (her husband) roses, she buys him a dozen different salamis! I thought that was pretty cute. Maybe I should amend my Valentines Day gift ideas post to include that one, ha!
It was so much fun to get to see Rachael. I've always said that there are only two shows I'd ever like to see taped live...The Price Is Right (who wouldn't want to play Pinko!?) and the Rachael Ray Show, so this was a very special treat!
Have you ever seen a live show? Which one?
