"One of the things I use to do a lot to relax was rodeo. I use to do team roping. I rodeoed with the U.S. team champions – and I went to their finals in 1994 and 1996. I did most of my stuff out west. I would run a circuit from middle of Texas from far east [and] I would go all the way to California."

Kiefer Sutherland visits the Rachael Ray Show to discuss his upcoming show Touch and reveals a hidden talent on the episode set to air April 5.

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

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 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.

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.
