Rachael Ray to Donate $25,000 to Animal Rescue

Originally posted 12/16/2011 10:00AM

Rachael Ray has an extra $25,000 she has to give away to charity this season, and she wants you to help her decide who should get it.

The talk show host and animal lover recently launched pet food brand Nutrish to give consumers healthy and natural products for their dogs, but Nutrish has a second goal: to help homeless pets.

As the year winds down, and there are still funds left for Rachael Ray and Nutrish to donate, they have partnered with PEOPLEPets.com to launch Click the Cutest: Rachael Ray's Shelter Helpers.

Do you want to help your favorite animal rescue organization? Here's how: Starting now, we want all parents of rescue pets to upload their cutest photos of their furballs.

Tired of turkey?

There's more to Thanksgiving than the staples, and Rachael Ray is serving up something that might just score with the whole family.

Her hearty Touchdown Chili – which brings the heat and a generous helping of beef – is the perfect companion for kicking back on the couch and watching football, regardless of which team you're rooting for.

"I named it 'Touchdown Chili' simply because I made it on the first day of the season for my team, the Jets," she tells PEOPLE. "My husband and I love chili so much."

Joy Behar: I Wouldn't Wed Until the In-Laws Were Dead

Originally posted 11/07/2011 01:50PM

Joy Behar originally said it was the passage of gay marriage legislation in New York that finally encouraged her to say "I do" to Steve Janowitz, her beau of 29 years.

But now The View co-host admits there was an additional factor involved.

"I waited until all the parents were dead," Behar, 69, said on Monday's Rachael Ray. "So I have no in-laws at all. He has none and I have none. 'Cause marriage is mostly about in-laws, I find. They always want you to visit them and come for lasagna."

 In-laws aren't the only thing about marriage Behar hoped to avoid.

Keri Russell's Favorite Dessert: Whoopie Pie!

Originally posted 08/31/2011 09:15AM

Keri Russell hasn't revealed whether she's having any specific food cravings during her second pregnancy. But if it's sweets she's coveting, we have a good idea where she's going to indulge: a Brooklyn bakery called One Girl Cookies.

"I'm definitely a fan of One Girl Cookie's whoopie pies – specifically their pumpkin whoopie pie with cream cheese filling," the actress told PEOPLE.

And Russell isn't the only one going crazy for whoopie pies.

Apple-caramel flavored treats from Wannahavacookie, an online retail bakery, have been spotted in Rachael Ray's office.

What is it they say about too many cooks?

Clearly the celebrity kitchen's not big enough for at least two TV chefs: Anthony Bourdain and Paula Deen.

Bourdain, the bestselling author and host of Travel Channel's No Reservations, triggered a food feud by blasting the queen of down-home Southern cooking in a TV Guide interview.

Are dogs the masters in some alternate universe? If that alternate universe is Rachael Ray's house, then yes. The talk show host readily admits she's at the mercy of her pit bull, Isaboo.

"She really has the run of the house," Ray tells PEOPLE Pets of her beloved pooch.

And is it any surprise? Isaboo's realm includes the kitchen.

Terrified Rachael Ray to Show Serious Skin in DWTS Dress

Originally posted 02/02/2011 05:15PM

Rachael Ray has jumped out of a plane and held a giant python on her talk show but on Thursday she'll do something that truly terrifies her: She'll wear a skimpy red dress designed by Dancing with the Stars costume designer Randall Christensen.

"It's just so intimidating," Ray told PEOPLE after she taped the episode on Tuesday. "That was more skin than I show at the beach. I'm usually the girl in the long poncho."

DWTS designer Christensen brought up the idea. Ray's staff pitched the idea to her after Ray – a huge fan of DWTS – said that she wouldn't be caught dead wearing one of the reality show's revealing outfits. Ray decided to take on the challenge because her 2011 New Year's resolution is to try to do more things that frighten her.

No wonder Rachael Ray looks so fantastic and fit. The syndicated TV host is several sizes smaller and brimming with energy.

"I started running 3½ miles every morning after throat surgery to remove a cyst last year," Ray, sipping on a beer, tells PEOPLE at the Amstel Light Burger Bash she hosted Thursday during the South Beach Wine & Food Festival at the Ritz-Carlton. "The gym used to be my adversary. But that has all changed. Now, I look forward to it every morning."

Never one to rise early, Ray, 41, looking hot in jeans and sexy sandals, is ready to rip at 5:50 a.m., and even earlier if she has a TV appearance before her own New York-based talk show.
