Rachel Ray discusses her 2003 racy photo spread for FHM magazine on the March 2 edition of Nightline on ABC. Ray tells that her mother was furious of the shoot, but that she would do it again tomorrow.
“I think I was 35 at the time and I thought about it for a while, and I said, ‘You know what? This magazine has as young as 17-, 18-year-olds in hottie bikinis, and these are all actresses, models, pin-up girls. I don’t belong to any even remote club of theirs.'”
“And I thought, ‘If I’m gutsy enough to do this, this is a good thing for everybody. This is the everywoman, here she is,'” she adds. “And I did it, and it was the most scared I’ve ever been, and I wouldn’t change a thing. I’d do it again tomorrow.”
