“They put up their fans and their humidifiers. And then, they make a hole in the wall and break the main water pipe and flood the entire building down to the first floor, from our apartment on the sixth floor,”
“Tell me you would not feel like a kicked can.”
Prior to this, her home had burned down, with Rachael telling fans on her show “On August 9th, my house burned. 15 years of memories; 40 years of notebooks, drawings, thoughts, my life’s work,”

“In the years that I lived here, I learned an awful lot. In the few weeks since it burned I think I’ve learned even more.”
“Today we’re going to share what’s left of our home with you.”
