Rachael Ray Roundup

Guess who's going to Vegas again? That's right, it's me! I have tickets for "O" at the Bellagio, a massage appointment at a spa, and more restaurant picks than I have time for. We just wanted a little getaway and got an outstanding deal on room and airfare rates, so off we go. If there's some restaurant you know of that I have to go to when I'm there, let me know!

Here are some Rachael Ray posts from around the blogosphere this week. If you see a post that you think would be good for the Roundup, or you write one yourself, e-mail me so I can be sure to include it.

  • Talk Show Ratings Update: According to Broadcasting & Cable, "CBS’ Rachael Ray remained at its season-high 2.1 for the second straight week.
