Rachel Ray

Another celebrity sighting took place in the Twin Cities at the Mall of America in Bloomington in the month of December. I had gone there with with my wife to get her latest book signed, "Just In Time". However when we arrived at 6:00 PM, we were told by Barns & Noble that you needed a wrist band that were handed out at noon. I was a bit discouraged by this, yet when I saw the size of the crowd that had assembled in the center court, I completely understood their method of crowd control. That didn't stop me from getting a few photos of the very popular television star. I was able to capture her entrance into the mall while she was escorted into the building by the security guards. Capturing two other people attempts at her photo, one via cell phone, left me with smiles. The one thing I took away from the evening was listening to the crowd say, "she is shorter in person that I realized".

Do I take it that she is some kind of writer? Anyway, you don't have to be tall to be an author!

You're kidding right? Rachel Ray is a Food Network star, she has her own show there and on NBC I think. Catch phrase: EVOO.

That's an odd photo of her in the store, I guess it's the lighting and all the makeup she is wearing, but she looks like a mannequin -- kinda creepy. I like the cellphone-paparazzi in front of you. Nice job for an AP assignment!

The lighting was terrible, plus my flash bounced off of the gentleman on the left of the frame. I know she was saying 'hello' to people on her way to the book signing location.

Hi there! I admit, I had to google her name to find out who she was. She is tanned! I thought she was a movie star with all those security guards!
