Beth had a very special surprise for Howard: The one and only Rachael Ray! Rachael has been a big fan of the show for a long time, but she had yet to make her Stern Show debut (she attended the Billy Joel Town Hall, but that's not the same).
Beth somehow convinced her that today was the day and Rachael shot back with a surprise of her own - she was going to donate the first six months of revenue from her cat food Nutrish to Bianca's Furry Friends! She promised to hand over a check to Beth for $500,000.
That's a lot of happy cats.
