US Magazine Trying To Start A Catfight Between Rachel Ray and Martha Stewart

Posted by sparky on November 18th, 2009

Did Martha Stewart slam Rachel Ray in an ABC Nightline interview, as US Magazine suggests?  It would be great news if it were true.  But alas. I think US Magazine is just into stirring up catfights  Let’s roll the video tape and see what they actually said, and then you be the judge.

Stewart did say of Ray that she “just did a new cookbook which is just a re-edit of a lot of her old recipes.”  Yes, this is a little critical, but yawn, it ain’t gonna get the estrogen flowing.  Stewart also said that Ray is “more of an entertainer … with her bubbly personality, than she is a teacher, like me.”  Where’s the insult?  This is a compliment.

If there was any bait, Ray didn’t take it.  In response to these comments, she said of Stewart:  “Her skill set is far beyond mine. I really just think she’s being honest. She does have a better skill set than I do when it comes to producing a beautiful, perfect, high-quality meal.” Says Ray, “I’d rather eat Martha’s than mine, too.”
