This week Randy Fertel steps into the cyber studio to talk beef – yes, beef. His mother is none other than the woman who began the kingdom of Ruth’s Chris
Steak House known and loved for their Sizzzzling steaks. But wait – there’s more.

What you must be thinking by now is (or you should) is – what a great and strange childhood this mus
