Rachael Ray, the celebrity chef, is rummaging among the ruins of another home. Ray tells People magazine that the New York City apartment she lives with husband John Cusimano was flooded when Hurricane Ida’s remnants hit earlier this month, almost more than a year after a fire demolished her home located in the Warren County.
Rachael’s NYC Apartment Destroyed
The 53-year-old celebrity chef revealed to an entertainment website that she had recently completed the renovations to the flat that is located in New York City, however, then Ida snatched it away from her. She also added that she didn’t mean out, down, and out. She further went on to say that practically every ceiling speaker, fireplace, and the gap in the wall was destroyed and it seemed as if the apartment had melted away, as in “Wicked.”
Ray and her family also narrowly avoided a fire that destroyed her home on Chuckwagon Trail, a private road in Lake Luzerne, last year. The fire on Aug. 9, 2020, destroyed much of the house, but not all of it, including the studio where she taped “The Rachael Ray Show” for the Food Network show.
What Did Racheal Say?
After the fire incident, Ray had thanked all the local first responders for being courteous and gracious and saved what they could of her home through her official Twitter account. Ray wrote that she felt grateful that her mom, and her hubby, along with her dog, everyone was okay.
She also wrote in her tweet that these are the days when people must be thankful for what they have rather than what they have lost. Ray included a section about the fire in the season premiere of her syndicated show last year. Ray described how she lit a fire in her fireplace, and then a man leaped off an ATV in her backyard and shrieked that her roof was on fire, according to the video.
