Rachael Ray: Self Defense & Julia Benz
On April 12 2013, Rachael Ray brings you a Friday of learning and celebrities. Rachael and Jerone “The Bus” Bettis get into some self-defense. They bring us the self-defense tricks that every woman needs in her arsenal. Then, Julie Benz talks about her new SyFy series Defiance.
Rachael Ray: Jerome “The Bus” Bettis
It’s Footbal Friday on Rachael. She brings in Jermone “The Bus” Bettis to get the weekend started. Rachael is challenging him to a football toss challenge. For every score in the endzone, Bettis earns a prize for the audience.
Rachael Ray: Self-Defense 101
Also on this episode, Rachael demonstrates some of the essential self-defense moves for women. I’m not sure what a ponytail head-butt is, but it sounds dangerous and painful. Rachael says that it could save you from an attacker. But, what do we do if our hair isn’t in a ponytail? Or if we rock the pixie cut? Rachael will hopefully have some different options for defending ourselves.
Rachael Ray: Julie Benz Defiance
Julie Benz played the soft-spoken but strong mother Rita on Dexter. She’s since traded serial killers for superheros, telekentics and aliens. Her new SyFy series Defiance is set in the future. Aliens called Votans have invaded Earth and hope to make it their new home. The Votans turn our planet into an unrecognizable land of war and destruction. Humans and aliens must learn how to live together or die together.
I don’t want to call this show dead before it starts, but the last two series that Benz joined, A Gifted Man and No Ordinary Family, didn’t get second seasons. Dexter is going on without her. I like Julie Benz, but I wonder what the future holds for her.
