Susan Lucci visited 'Rachael Ray' on Friday to school the audience on how to give a proper soap opera slap. And boy did she come down hard on a few of them!

The perky talk show host pulled three of her staff members on stage--all of whom had recently crossed her. She then asked the legendary daytime actress to help her teach them a lesson.

One by one, Ray revealed what each staffer had done to make her mad--and one by one, Lucci slapped them. And after seeing how it was done, Ray got in on it, slugging staff member Chad so hard he almost fell over.

Check out the hilarious video.
