Rachael Ray having surgery, but not for cancer



Forget the rumors that Rachael Ray has throat cancer -- the celebrity cook herself is shooting those down. People says the talk-show host is actually having surgery, though, and will involve her neck.

Tbdrachaelray100608 "Rachael is the picture of health. She is having very minor surgery to remove a benign cyst on her vocal cord," spokesman Charlie Dougiello says. "It's a common in-and-out procedure that she will have in early December and it will not adversely effect any of her daytime show or Food Network tapings."

The surgery will require a mere week of taking it easy, but it's nothing like the life-or-death situation the National Enquirer was reporting.

"She's totally fine. It's just something she needs to take care of. She hasn't been feeling ill," a source tells People. She'll be back to everything in sight in no time!
