Looky here. Rachael Ray’s kitchen set has a blue Big Chill fridge like the ones I showed you earlier. Her orange stove is apparently a reworked original, but the refrigerator is a retro-inspired new one.
Here’s a shot of it closer up:
I found this at the Big Chill site, but the source wasn’t credited. Anyone recognize the magazine it was in?
Earlier this year she auctioned off a blue fridge like the one on her set for her Yum-O! charity. It was signed by all of her second-season guests. I think it went for about $5,000 in May.
Is it just me, or do you find it disturbing to see that pretty blue fridge “defaced” with marker? Yeah, I know, those are celebrity autographs, which is fun, but still. I’d rather have their names on a big piece of paper I could frame, and a clean blue fridge for my kitchen.
Rachael Ray is a dynamo. She’s everywhere, all the time. You can’t escape her. It wears me out just thinking about how hard she must work. When she started doing those Ritz Crackers spots that were on TV every five minutes around the holidays last year, I just thought, sheesh, Girl, take a break for one minute, will ya? Do you really need to sell crackers now, too?
Then again, that’s why she’s a celebrity whose brand is worth millions, and I’m…not. But you know what? I’m a simple girl. I’d be happy if I could earn just enough to afford a retro fridge!
