For Mrs. Wales, one perk of her son’s fame stands out.
“Rachael Ray called me,” she said. Ray, host of a popular cooking show on the Food Network, was attending the Lincoln Center event honoring Time’s 100 Most Influential People, where he walked a red carpet to enter.
“Jimmy met her and said ‘I don’t know if my mom is more proud of me getting the Time 100 honor or meeting you,” Mrs. Wales recalls. Ray offered to call Mrs. Wales on her son’s cell phone.
“He said, ‘Mom, I have someone who wants to talk to you — Rachael Ray.’ So she talked to me, told me I must be so proud of my son. That was my highlight,” said Mrs. Wales.
