Planning on cooking dinner this week? Whatever you do, don’t wash that chicken! Dr. Rich Besser from ABC news stopped to talk about his new book, Tell Me The Truth, Doctor, and he dropped that big truth bomb on Ali. “As soon as that water hits the surface of the chicken, it sprays all over your kitchen,” Dr. Besser warned. “You will find the germs from the surface of your chicken all over your cutting board, your light switches, everything.”
So what DO you do about all the bacteria that cover your raw chicken? “As long as you’re cooking your chicken thoroughly to 165 degrees, it’s gonna kill all of those germs,” he says.
Important health warning out of the way, Ali got down to the really embarrassing stuff—the stuff people are usually to shy to ask their doctors. Namely—should someone be worried if he or she farts too much? What about it they sweat too much? Or not at all?

Spring is here, the weather is changing, and so are celebrity hairstyles: Sofia Vergara, Drew Barrymore, and Beyonce recently went blonde. But going blonde can be risky sometimes, even for a Hollywood actress. Comedian Selena Coppock, author of a new book called, “The New Rules for Blondes,” joins Ali to talk about celebs who make it work, and those who don’t.
“I’m actually surprised you were able to do quite a thick book,” Ali tells Selena. “For a blonde…people expect a pamphlet from us.”
Selena and Ali broke it down into natural blondes and bottle blondes. Some of their favorite naturals? There’s Cameron Diaz, “a classic California blonde,” Cybill Shepherd, and “the spirit of blondeness,” Miss Piggy.
The best bottle blondes? Selena loves Madonna, a natural brunette who “lives the blonde dream,” Lady Gaga, and the quintessential bottle blonde, Marilyn Monroe.
The ladies also discussed celebs who can ‘go both ways’ as blondes and brunettes, throwing Linda Evangelista and Reese With...Read More »
- Daily Shot | Daily Shot | Wed, May 1, 2013 2:10 PM EDT | CommentsToday, Ali welcomes the multi-talented Joey Fatone! You of course know him from *NSYNC and Dancing with the Stars, and now he’s got a new show on the Live Well Network called on My Family Recipe Rocks!
Ali couldn’t let Joey off easy and not ask him about his *NSYNC days. After he revealed the band’s pre-show ritual that occasionally kept the audience waiting (check the video), he gave her his advice for the boy band of the moment, One Direction. “Stay off twitter. Back then with *NSYNC we we didn’t have Twitter, didn’t have Facebook. It’s such an immediate response on stuff now that you gotta kinda be a little careful.”
Joey’s new show, however, is all about food. “I go to people’s homes,” he explained, “I go ‘hey, whaddaya got cooking?’ They go ‘this is what it is,’ I eat their food and I go home. It’s great.”
The show features ordinary people in ordinary real kitchens, just cooking up what their family has passed down from generation to generation. The weirdest thing Joey’s eaten,...Read More »

Food Network Star Sandra Lee stopped by Daily Shot to chat about her 25th cookbook, Every Dish Delivers, and her efforts to fight childhood hunger by throwing the world’s largest bake sale. It’s the second time she’s throwing the event, and 100% of the proceeds go to the No Kid Hungry campaign.
While the massive event takes place this Wednesday in New York City, Sandra says it’s part of a year-long plan to throw bake sales all over the country to raise awareness of the more than 16 million children struggling with hunger nationwide.
Sandra told Ali that her dedication to this particular cause stems from a childhood spent on welfare and food stamps. “I was one of those kids who was standing in line…like, ‘I’m nobody, I got food stamps,’ and I felt so awful and embarrassed.”
Now, celebs such as Mario Batali, Emeril Lagasse, Wendy Williams, and Ty Pennington are joining her in her annual fundraiser, which she hopes will inspire others to throw bake sales of their own.
As for Sandra’s...Read More »
