Rosie O'Donnell will spend three days in the kitchen on "Rachael Ray" this month, and that has Ray pretty pumped.

"She's just fantastic television and a fantastic human being," Ray told the Daily News. "I feel so honored to have her on the show at all, let alone three times [this year] in such close proximity, and I love that she's here at Thanksgiving time because she's one of the things that I'm thankful for."
