Today Dmitriy and I went to see a taping of Rachael Ray. The show was extremely strict and we couldn't take pictures or anything! All I have is one picture from the waiting area. :( We waited almost 2 hrs before actually getting officially seated! For the last half an hr in the waiting area, they didn't allow us to go to the restroom which I thought was very inconsiderate (when they did allow restroom trips, they kept a watchful eye on all of us). How they can do that and offer us water and snacks is beyond me!
Rachael Ray is a sweetheart and extremely good at what she does. Even though it wasn't a live taping, she didn't need to read anything and was just so natural! She also cracked jokes and talked to us continuously. The overall atmosphere was very chill and she really contributed to that.
So after being mildly star struck, we were really hit hard after...the guest was Zac Efron! He came to promote his new movie, The Lucky One. Here is a trailer from Youtube:
He acted really shy and I'm not ashamed to say, cute also. :D I'm surprised that no one screamed out that they love him as you would normally expect.
After that, she cooked. We didn't get to try anything, but it smelled gooooodddd. haha We took an audience photograph after:
Facebook page. We're all the way on the left in the back. :)
We got a large bag of pretzels and a copy of the May issue of her magazine. They said to expect it to be on air in about 2 weeks, so see if you can spot us!
