Headed to NY today to see a taping of Rachael Ray at 9:45. We planned on getting there an hour early but the bus didn't get in until 9:15 so we walked to the studio, got in line and took our chances. Of course they gave out more tickets than they should have (from what I understand this is common practice) but we were very fortunate to get the last 2 tickets. We only had a 15-20 minute wait in the "holding room". The tickets are color coded -we had blue tix so we were the 2nd group to go in. Joey warmed us up - unlike some other reviews we found him very entertaining.
Rachael came out for a few minutes to talk to us but after that she was all business. While some people say she's mean she did show us her soft side. One of the segments was on the North Shore animal shelter and she had 3 rescue dogs that are up for adoption. She was very emotional and got teary-eyed so don't be quick to judge her. There were no celebrities or giveaways but all in all it was a great experience and I'd do it again.
