Reel Big Rachael Ray

Before you read the comic, I want to make something perfectly clear. I am a Rachael Ray fan. Her recipes are awesome and easy to make. I come across as a bona fide chef when I follow her instructions. Usually I just look them up online, but occasionally I'll catch a show or read one of her cook books for stuff.

Lately it seems to me like the entire Food Network is really selling out. Which is fine, I understand. They want to make money, so they get their people out in front of those who don't watch the Food Network. Cross promotional type things. Tyler Florence is making dishes for Applebee's, Giada De Laurentiis is going on Iron Chef and Jimmy Kimmel ... I understand. There's monies to be made.

But we need to have some sort of intervention with Rachael Ray. She has a daytime talk show. Talk show. Not cooking show ... a show with her just.... talking. And it's one of the worst things on TV. Not only that, but her face is popping up on absolutely everything these days with recipes for all sorts of random crap.

If we don't do something about it soon, I'm afraid she might start doing something less family friendly. (Mildy NSFW. Use headphones and you'll be alright.)

Nice bathroom graffiti there...

I agree completely. I used to be a huge Rachael Ray fan, but I think she may be getting on my nerves. And of course, there's this gem of an incident. I just don't think foodnetwork stars should be making the tabloids.

That graffiti is sooooooo true.

Also, Rachel Ray might be dying (It's cached because the Superficial is hiding it...). These are things you should know.
