I dabbled in a bit of self-torture today, yes, I watched an entire Rachael Ray episode. Luckily on this episode Rachael’s “Buddie”, Gretta Monahan, did a lengthy fashion segment. It dawned on me during the fashion piece that Gretta is a far better host than Rachael!
Gretta was genuinely engaging and fun, and unlike Rachel, did not talk about herself at every opportunity. But the best thing though, is Gretta pleasing voice! Yes – there’s a slight Long Islandy accent, not anywhere near Fran Drescher, mind you, and I have yet to hear Gretta say EVOO, or any such too-cute nonsense!
Give Gretta her own show, or better yet, Rachael show!
