No surgery for Rachel Ray

No Silent Nights after all for Rachel Ray this holiday season.

The chef and talk show host was scheduled to have surgery to remove a benign cyst on her vocal chords.

If she had gone under the knife, she would not have been able to talk for a while.

But now her doctor says she doesn't need the surgery.

She will undergo therapy, instead.
