Rachel Ray FHM Photos

Rachael Ray sat down with "Nightline" host Cynthia McFadden and she defended her choice to pose sexy in men's mag FHM 6 years ago.

"I thought if I'm gutsy enough to do this, this is a good thing for everybody," Ray said of being 35 and asked to pose in the magazine in 2003. "This is the everywoman, here she is. And I thought, what the heck? I asked my husband what he thought of it and he said, oh, kinda cool. And I did it and it was the most scared I've ever been and I wouldn't change a thing. I'd do it again tomorrow."

Ray also said her mother "remains furious" about this shoot, and that she thought FHM stood for "Food and Home" not "For Him Magazine" at first! Lol.

Who's hungry???
