Rachael Ray is very possesive when she talks

Richie Apr 13, 2005 01:51 PM

I think she is kinda cool but while watching 30 Minute Meals one night she was very possesive. She is always saying..I have to get my bowls,my spices,my meats,my utensils. Everything is my this or my that! Come on,don't they have anyone at the food network to teach this girl how to talk??? It got to be really irratating after awhile. Have any of you noticed that about her. Richie

    Folks, these subjects are getting more and more tired and ranty. Everytime a "Don't you just HATE *INSERT FOOD TV PERSONALITY HERE*" thread comes up, we get these huge long rants. We're really not here to channel your inner Andy Rooney, and rantfests don't do the site any good, and just increase our bandwidth charges.

    Please channel your FoodTV frustration somewhere else- send them an email, start your own "I HATE X" site, whatever you need to do to get it off your chest, but please give those topics a rest here. Thanks.

        And, to make matters worse, does she have to keep saying "delish" or "hello?"

          ...or my personal favorite: "YUM-O!"

          Yes, the woman butchers up the English language more than anyone on FoodTV.

          Have noticed her My-this, My-that talk and, if she doesn't already say it, she'll soon be calling FoodTV "MY NETWORK!"

          What gets under my skin is when she says EVOO and she tells us *that's Extra Virgin Olive Oil*. She says the acronym and she tells you what it is....why bother with the EVOO?

          Also, her habit of overloading her arms with ingredients, and her giggling

          And then her $40 a day show is annoying because her reaction every time she puts something in her mouth is mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Just once, could she not like something or say it is too spicy, too sweet? Something a little INTERESTING.

            Of course not... some of the places on the show pay for "billing" (as do the companies highlited on Food Finds).

            If you asked them, Food TV would most certainly say that it wouldn't be much of a show if they hadn't already done the legwork to get you the BEST food.

            I say it's not much of a show anyway.

            I'd rather poke rusty nails through my eyeballs then listen to her giggle at herself.

                Too-shay, you have excellent taste. Gourmet, even.
