Rachael Ray Behind the Velvet Rope

I recently read Everyone Worth Knowing, a novel by the same author as the Devil Wears Prada. In addition to being a perfect summer chick-lit read, the book provided a glimpse into the Public Relations business' party world.

So, when I saw this article about how "cooking queen" Rachael Ray attended the Entertainment Weekly Must List party, which featured a performance by Christina Aguilera, I couldn't help but think of the book I had just read. Basically, these parties are never about actually partying (well, for some people I am sure they are). They are all about promotion for the venue, in this case, the Buddha Bar (see, they got me to mention it!) and about promotion for the stars who attend. So I am proud of Rachael for getting outside her (apparent) comfort zone to hang out with the likes of Christina Aguilera, Nelly Furtado and Vanessa Carlton. Her PR people must be doing a good job! Here are some pics from the party, which were tracked down by Joi at Get Cooking, including some cute ones of Rachael with her husband, John Cusimano. Click on the picture to see a bigger version:


  1. They make a cute couple ... the last picture was a little iffy though.

  2. I know, I know. But that's why I had to include it!
