RACHAEL RAY IN BITTER BATTLE WITH MARTHA STEWART AND PAULA DEEN!


Thursday, September 23, 2010

DOMESTIC divas Martha Stewart , Rachael Ray and Paula Deen are embroiled in a bitter feud, it has been claimed.

Martha, Rachel and Paula
According to American tabloid the National Enquirer, the trio are fighting for TV ratings, sales of their magazines and cookbooks, as well as buyers for their vast array of products.

“Martha, Rachael and Paula are in a crowded market, and they’re competing for each other’s audience,”  a source said.

“Each one of them wants desperately to be number one, and they’re in a dogfight that’s gotten down and dirty!

“While Martha was gracious to Rachael, she craftily proceeded to make mincemeat out of her by exploiting her weaknesses, especially getting Rachael to admit that she can’t bake.

“Martha delivered a near-steady barrage of subtle digs at Rachael, who looked really uncomfortable.

“When there were published reports that Rachael may have made racist comments about Oprah when she had too much to drink one night, Martha laughed, ‘Rachael is a drunk’.

“The nasty gossip Martha spreads has gotten back to Rachael – and Rachael dishes about Martha in return. It’s a vicious cycle between them,” said a source close to Rachael.

“Rachael has even cracked, ‘I’d love to slap Martha!

“Rachael thinks Paula s a ‘hillbilly’ who cooks with unhealthy ingredients and serves up fried, fatty foods.

“Martha can’t stand what Paula makes. She says it’s just fat-laden comfort food with no aspiration toward art in the kitchen.

“She says Paula is going to turn America into a nation of obese housewives! Martha has even laughed that Paula is a hillbilly.

“Paula harbors no personal resentment against Rachael or Martha, but she’s a competitor, and her popularity is growing.

“She definitely wants to be number one, and if that happens, it’ll crush Martha and Rachael in the process.”[imagebrowser id=586]

    Extremely poor-written hogwash with misspellings and non-true b.s.

    • Adam

      What is non-true? Last time I checked, the word was untrue. Irony anyone? LOL

    • Ruth

      Ok we have an ex-con a non baker and a hillbilly= All three need to give more to charity!!!

      • HillbillyDrunk

        So you know how much the three of them are giving to charity then?

      • http://yahoo BONNIE KLOET

        Hi ruth I agree they all have enough money to buy their own network so they should give some of their money to charity after all they are pretty rich.

      • John

        Just to let you all know Rachael Ray does alot for childrens charities, she also does a lot of charity work to help parents of obese children.(in a good way) I have been to a Rachael Ray show and have met her at one of her charities in NYC. She does do charities. As far as the other two I am not sure but I think Paula Dean Does do charities and Martha (SUCKS) She is a nobody anymore who is jealous of the other “younger” generation stealing her spotlight.

      • Andre

        You people kills me with this charity crap. Maybe if you did your research before posting bullshit! You would’ve known that they all give to charity, or have their own charity foundations. So please know what you say.. before you say it! Ugh..

    • Carol

      Rachel Ray is gross. She can’t shine Martha Stewart’s shoes. I am sick of everyone who has been on Oprah’s show has then started their own show. She is a terrible, unhealthy cook. Besides, she is the one who made Oprah fat…go figure. Don’t like Paula Butter Dean either!! Would eat food prepared by Martha, but not R and P…

  • susieq

    may the best one win.but i like paula except she can have a potty mouth some times

  • http://showbizstory Doc

    So Martha when is your book coming out called
    Best Recipes I Used in Prison…

  • ccountz

    What poorly written garbage. Anyone who keeps up knows that Rachael has ALWAYS admitted she couldn’t bake, back when Martha was still a jailbird. She has also admitted that she is not a trained cook (psst…neither are the other two).

  • BarbaraP

    At least Paula and Rachael don’t have prison records. I’d have Paula and Rachael at my house any day. We’d eat good food, laugh, talk and Martha can just stay home and be the stuck up, snobby, self-absorbed twit that she is.

  • http://ShowbizSpy Carole

    I’ve always liked Rachel Ray, but if it’s true that she called Paula a hillbilly, it has certainly altered my opinion of Rachel.

    I’ve never liked Martha Stewart. She’s pompous and thinks she’s somehow elite. How can someone who’s been in jail really be critical of others?

    I liked Paula Deen better before she changed. I liked her when she was just a downhome cook. Too much success changes everyone.

    • Calvin

      I have felt the same way about Paula’s show. I like the old style Paula Deen’s Show and not the new format. My favorite of all the women cooks, however, is Ina Garten, “The Barefoot Contessa.”

  • michael smith

    rachel and paula seem like people i’d have over.still i can’t eat most of what paula promotes as its really fattening and unhealthy.martha is a snotty dishonest crook

    • PJ

      Martha can’t actually cook, she has her staff do that for her; Paula can ACTUALLY cook, albeit not healthy, and Rachael is a cute little TV packaged scam: Tried several of her cookbooks, she has absolutely cooking skills, no “mis en place” skills, and as a chef, I wouldn’t hire to wash the dishes. All personality & no substance!

  • Randi Walker

    I can appreciate that these women are working hard to promote their products but they are not even in the same league as far as cooking.

    Rachael cooks quick and messy. True, her recipes and creations can be made in 1/2 hour but have you ever watched how many dishes and pots she uses in that time. Without her back-up staff to clean up after, Rachael would be cooking for 1/2 an hour then cleaning for an hour. I love some of her ideas and have even modified a couple in order to make them a little easier to clean up after but she is not the same kind of cook either Paula or Martha are.

    True, Paula uses butter in just about everything, or fatback or even lard on occasion but she is not trying to cook healthy, she is cooking country. Country folk make use of the best ingredients they can buy for the money they have and that often means not the healthiest of stuff. Paula represents the folks who work hard for their money and want ot eat as well as they can on what they have. Her success from single mom wondering how to provide for her 2 sons to cooking Diva is the best part about her. It shows drive and determination and makes her a great icon for women everywhere. I don’t eat much of her food but I love to watch her show.

    Martha you can keep.

    • mmmjjjyyy

      In Europe a lot of butter is used.
      Did they learn that from Paula too?

  • gohar

    Marta is my Diva,she is #1 star.

    • notfatwife

      I disagree wholeheartedly with this statement. I myself am an American housewife and NOT obese or even fat and I know alot of ladies who can say the same. AND I’m southern to boot. So thank you very much for the generalization.

  • Dave

    What makes America a nation of obese housewives is a wedding ring. Put on the ring….wait 18 months….and BOOM!

    • Julie BubbleGums Lil SIS

      Dave it’s not the ring! It is called depression!!! It is the way truth is finally revealed about MR. & Mrs. Charming! And men are just as frickin obese as women!

    • Juan Martinez

      Good reply to an ignorant/angry comment. Life is how an individual looks at life.

  • Reason

    The peoblem is these women think they are more important then they really are. My mother, grandmother and now wife all are terrific cooks and never watched one of the women. If I had to choose someone to cook for me, it would be Ina – she’s got game that girl!

    • http://msn.com Shug

      Im with you about Ina G., thats my girl!! :) Her and Jeffrey are sooooo cute. If i had 2 choose out of the three, it wld hve 2b Paula. . . she is as real as can be. Rachel ive never liked, she is a “cook” not a chef, So are Paula and Martha (btw). Popularity has gone straight to Rachels head. Next headline will be her hubby cheating on her (sad to say). Martha, i’ve never been a fan. I like the PBS cooking shows as well.. Ming, americas test kitchens. . . ) but for some good food tv, tyler florence, bobby flay and last but Never least!: Guy Feitti

    • Calvin

      You are so very correct about my wonderful girl INA. She has a great deal of class, style and just plain and simply the best cook of all of those women. I just love her cooking show!!

  • Robin

    I doubt Rachel said any kind of racist comments about Oprah, Oprah helped her get her talk show and Rachel just does not seem like that kind of person…I think its all blown out of porportion and its all BS…I do however love Rachel and prob have just about every cookbook of hers, I love that i can cook all these fabulous meals in such a short time, and they all taste wonderful…..

    I like Paula Deen as well and even though she may have really fatty foods, I don’t cook most of her dishes because of that, but the ones that are more healthy (which isn’t many) I do cook….She is a funny lady, and I just enjoy watching her, I love her sons too!!

    As far as Martha Stewart goes, well I won’t say anything about her because I have nothing good to say about her and shes not worth my time……

  • http://yahoo maurice bertin

    DEAR MISS RAY, I THINK YOU HIT IT ON THE HEAD OF THE NAIL . I WATCH YOUR SHOW , WHEN AVAILABLE , YOU’RE A GREAT COOK ,BECAUSE OF THE SIMPLICITY, AND THE FUN YOU HAVE DOING IT .
    OF COURSE YOU BEGIN WITH LOVE , THEN YOU ADD A DOLLUP OF KINDNESS , FOLLOWED BY A HEART FFLT HELPING OF UNDERSTANDING .

    > lol MAURICE

    • STLaferty

      Cool! Start posting your recipes!!

      • mmmjjjyyy

        Maurice, you could learn from Rachael’s kindness.
        All caps is cyber-shouting.
        Bad manners, man…

  • confucius

    bring me a beer and quit postin this dumb sh*t!im da best chef eva and i can prove it!

  • James

    Yeah the only crushing Paula Dean is going to do is when she sits on Rachel Ray or Martha Stewart because of her growing weight due to the crap she cooks.

  • Mims

    For someone who’s a convicted felon Ms. Stewart STILL thinks she’s better than the rest of the unwashed masses (you know, the rest of us!). At least the other two ladies haven’t taken over the Hallmark Channel with episode after episode for hours on end.

    • mmmjjjyyy

      I’m not a Martha Stewart fan.
      However, she has served her time.
      Jesus has lovingly commanded us to FORGIVE others.

      Let the first of you,
      never to have made a mistake,
      cast the first stone.

  • Kathy

    They are all different style cooks.
    Rachel’s food is quick, easy and delicious – Paula’s food is down home comfort food – Martha is the upper end elegance.
    This business about Martha GETTING Rachel to admit that she can’t bake is bogus. Anyone who has ever watched her show just once will hear her say “I can’t bake.”
    There is bound to be comments both good and bad about each other. They are in a competition, for heaven’s sake!
    Long and short, quit perpetuating problems just so you can write a story.

    • mmmjjjyyy

      GREAT point!
      I suppose, like sports teams,
      it’s fun to stack one vs. another, but…

      why don’t we avoid comparing someone to another
      and simply enjoy the GOOD each has to offer???

  • Mark

    Rachel is too smarmy and cutsie for my tastes…

    I’d eat anything I’ve ever seen Paula cook or bake…

    However, Martha should let Hansel and Gretel go before she ends up being baked in the oven herself!

  • Matthew F Kennedy

    I think this article about their fighting is nothing but “crap”. I enjoy them all for different reasons. I love to watch all three of them and although many people have so many nasty things to say about martha stewart I admire her talents and she has such wonderful taste. Rachel Ray seems like a sweet young woman and I love Paula Deen also because I think what you see if what you get, no phoniness about her at all.

    • STLaferty

      You are entitled to your opinion, but really- “The bitch”? “Bullshit”?
      It’s about cooking for crying out loud, so what’s the point of the profanity?

  • http://barneyhatesaniston.com Barney

    that was a load of garbage, but I will say this that fucking Rachael Ray is annoying with her delish, nutrish, evoo bullshit! Plus if it doesn’t have shrimp in it or a panini (which is just a fucking toasted pressed sandwich)then the bitch cannot cook, how about baking me some chocolate chip cookies, oh you can’t thats right Entenmanns again, Rachael?

    • Julie BubbleGums Lil SIS

      Here is a subscription to a free book at the library of your choice: Websters Dictionary. Maybe then you can use some other words to avoid sounding illiterate. It is your prerogative to make derogatory statements. Feel free to make as many as you wish. However, my child is learning to read extremely well. I left my computer on while diverting a catastrophe and now I have just had to explain what purpose your crass uneducated words serve. And to be honest, the only thing I could say was that I was sorry for your inability to use grown up nice words. Or that it could be a young teen trying to sound grown up. I wish you well in your education endeavors.

      • Barney

        Raising YOUR kid is YOUR job, not mine. You’re the one who left him/her in front of the computer unsupervised with an open browser. I will not be censored by the likes of you and you can just FUCK RIGHT OFF.

      • http://Showbiz stevieg

        I second the motion of Barney!! Take care of your KID, don’t blame it on other people that they have a “potty mouth”. The dumb lil bugger wouldn’t even have known what anyone was saying if the Big Bugger would not have had to avert a disaster in the kitchen. You are so quick to put somebody down for voicing their opinion,instead of watching the mush you are making for them poor souls to eat.

      • Chef Jeff

        Barney, spot on, instead of neglecting your child on the computer, why don’t you be a good mother and sit down with him/her and read with them. That’s why there are so many f@#$#ed up kids these days cause of mother’s like you. Do the world a favor, don’t have any more children….your husband and the rest of the world are asking this of you……Please?????

  • Mary

    I seen this on the cover of the Enquirer at the checkout. Probably part true and part garbage, it’s the Enquirer for heaven’s sake. There is enough room for all 3 Domestic Divas because they each bring something a little different to the table and in taste. Rachael is my fav with a little Paula thrown in for grins. I’ve never been a fan of Martha.
    The only bad mouth and the back stabber in this trio would be Martha. Does Martha ever use her status to give back? I’ve only heard her whine about what she lost ($$$) while she was in jail.

    • L Elbe

      Just a quick grammar lesson: You never use the word “seen” or “been” unless you use the word “have” before it. In the case of what you wrote above, you would use the word “saw” OR you would say “I have seen on the cover…..” Hope that goes down for learning something new every day.

  • Kathy

    Oh, and I forgot. Use a little bit better source than the rag, National Enquirer. What twit would rely on that magazine as truth in ANY form?

  • STLaferty

    Quite a few of us can identify with Rachel’s down to earth personality and approach in the kitchen far more easily than we can with Martha or Paula,, and so I doubt if Rachel has anything to worry about. Besides, I suspect a great deal of this so called “war” is media-generated anyway.

  • Mark

    Or the Wizard of Oz parallel

    Rachel as Dorthy,

    Paula as Glinda the Good Witch,

    and starring Martha as the Wicked witch of the West.

  • eddie

    what are they fighting over…who gets to the food trough first?…oink,oink

  • Crista

    The national enquirer is just a trash magazine. All their stories aren’t true and they suck.

  • Jules

    The writer is quoting the National Enquirer? Now there’s a trusted source. This article is garbage.

  • Terry

    Rachel wins any day!!! That classic smile could melt lead and makes my heart go whoopee!! What?? She cooks too?? Holy crap!! Is she single?

    • maggie mae

      I kinda like Rachel myself. I only wish she would get rid of that dirty looking hanger on she calls a husband. He is a moron living off the gravy train. Rachel just needs to get off that cutesy crap,

      Paula is kinda down to earth and funny. Her food is fattening and you have to like it to eat it. But she is entertaining.

      Martha is just a pompous ass.

      • vickie robertson

        Guessing from u’re comment u’re not happy with u’re spouse but Rachael & Hubby r Extremely happy & if u check things out he has his own income, him & his band ROCK.Who r u to say what makes a person happy with their spouses??R U just jealous u don’t have a Good Looking Rocker to the core hubby?? I’m an excellent cook who is married to the most Awesome drummer, cooking & music make a Wonderful Marriage, wish u the best:)

        I went to Paula place in Savannah, AWESOME!! I had Baked Chicken, collards, salad, fruit for dessert as well as a bunch of other good food- moral of the story: choose your own posion!!!

  • cc

    The only cooking show that was ever good enough too watch was Julia Child or maybe Justin Wilson.I would’nt waste time watching the hacks.

    • Meg

      cc, you’re right about that!!! Wish we could see reruns rather that most of the trash on the cooking channel now. Too many contests, not nearly enough instruction and recipes.

    • JoeFred

      I miss Justin Wilson

    • vickie robertson

      U R missing out. How many recipes of Julia Childs have u made for u’re family, guessing NONE because they wouldn’t eat it & who is Justin Wilson?? I am an excellent cook & have learned so much from the cooking channel, just keep on fixing the same old Boring meals for u’re family I know they’ll appreciate it. U don’t seem to know the effects on u’re family & u’re life of having the same meal Over & over does to them.BORING..on this note I guess u have a Really boring life & family, God Bless Them & as soon as they taste the various foods out their they will be thankful & leave u’r boring world behind..

      • Hautetamale

        Really, Tony? How long have you known Rachel to be able to say that she’s an ‘honest person’? And ‘straight shooter’? And her ‘simplicity in cooking’ comes from the ingredients she uses that have already been prepped and packaged!
        She’s as annoying as a knife and fork scraping a plate!

  • Tony

    My vote goes to Rachel Ray. She presents simplicity in cooking, a straight shooter, and a honest person. Paula Deen cooks with too much fat, and my guess is that her hubby is probably a cardiologist. About Martha Stewart cooking; let me put it this way: if you ever tasted any of her recipes, you’ll certainly appreciate, if not adore, Rachel Ray cooking (it’s beyond me why anyone watches Martha’s program.)

    • vickie robertson

      No Paula’s husband isn’t a cardiologist, do u’re research, a fisherman who is way over weight for his age. As for Martha, why is she on tv anyway, there r soo many talented people Above her that should be, guessing her money, that came from where????

      • http://msn.com Shug

        Only 1 correction Vickie, Paulas Husband is a Sailor (and/or ‘Sea Captain if you will), not a Fisherman. LOL on the “Way overweight” thing too funny!!!

  • Robin

    YES, this is all National enqirer BS….I admit, they are all good cooks, with their own style….But Rachel is my fav…Shes so bubbly with a cutesy personality and her made up words for different things I find creative and funny….And I’ve never made any panini recipes of hers as that is NOT what shes all about whoever said that…
    Anyways we all have our opinions and our favs, I also happen to like Tyler Florence I think hes a great cook as well….

    • Meg

      If you think TyFlo is all of that, all your taste is in your mouth!

  • Kevin

    This article was total garbage. The internet has given common idiots and idiotic ideas way too much credence. It’s so much bad information and lies on the internet and sadly people are too naive or lazy to seek the truth. And now we are siting the National Enquirer as a source. That is so funny.

  • Stacy

    Rachel Ray is a joke she has lost her passion and if you watch her closely she acts like she is on drugs she slurrs her speach when she talk she seems so disinterested in cooking or talking with her guest. My guess is she is burnt out. I hope they pull her show if it wasnt for Oprah she wouldnt even have a show minus the the Foodnetwork. I cant stand her.

    • Juan Martinez

      • Andre

        Does this look like a fucking English class to you? How about you state your own opinion about this fucking article, instead of hanging from everyone ball sack about their “lack of grammar”. Gosh you’re fucking annoying!!

        Oh.. and I’m all for Paula! She represents for the southern cookers out there. And I love her desert recipes! She’s the total package to me in the kitchen. I mean they’re all good cooks.. just prefer Paula out of the 3.

  • Jann

    TIRED TIRED TIRED OF RACHEL RAY AND HER LOSER HUSBAND THAT PROLLY GETS PAID FOR BEING ON HER SHOW AND DOES NOTHING,NOT EVEN A SMIL AND THE SAME FOR PAULA DEEN GET YOUR SONS OFF AND BACK TO PAULA DEAN, ISNT THAT WHAT THE SHOWS ARE CALLED “RACHEL RAY SHOW” AND PAULA DEAN SHOW???TELL RACHEL TO GET OVER HERSELF!!!!!!

  • lynda

    What a pile of childish crap. I’m sure everyone down at the trailer park is eatin’ up this garbage journalism.

    • http://Yahoo Learley

      I definetly agree with you one hundred percent!! All tabloids are rubbish! I don’t believe any of it at all!

  • cadie

    Really? Rachel has always said she can’t bake. Paula has never made any bones about the nutrition values of what she creates. And Martha? Pfffft! She’s sinking anyway. Too pretentious. What it boils down to is that this is from the NATIONAL INQUIRER people. It’s GARBAGE that someone has made up to sell mags and make a buck. Stop feeding the pigs!

    • http://Yahoo Learley

      Do you know Martha personally? Then she is NOT what you said she is!

  • Johnny USA

    Martha is a BEE-ATCH. Ask anyone who works for her. Believe me I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Juan Martinez

      PRACTICE YOUR ENGLISH AND PEOPLE MAY BE WILLING TO LISTEN TO YOUR COMMENTS IN THE FUTURE.

      • JUANITA

        Turn off the caps locks people and maybe they’ll be willing to listen to your rants about their lack of grammar skills.

        Oh and for the record, because many people here don’t seem to understand the cyber-lingo and etiquette of commenting:

        1. USING CAPS LOCKS IS THE EQUIVALENT OF YELLING!

        2. Pointing out someone’s poor grammatical performance or inability to spell and so on is the lowest form of “flaming a person”. When you resort to saying, “Nice post but you can’t spell,” or “Try using proper grammar next time”. You’re pretty much pointing out how lame you are. It’s like losing an argument with someone and saying, “So what you’re ugly”. It’s not that much of a burn.

        Secondly I prefer Martha. She IS down to earth and human. Just because she likes to do things a specific way and actually expects something close to perfection from what she’s doing and because most people don’t have her skills doesn’t mean she’s snobbish, it just means she rocks harder than you.

        I love Paula I don’t cook her food, but bless her heart I love her to peices.

        As for Racheal, she can fall into a deep dark hole and never come out and I’d be very happy.

    The journalistic source is the “National Enquirer” along with unnamed sources “close to [insert victim... er article subject here]“. Their computers would simply crash if any of these alleged journalist actually wrote the truth.

    I seriously doubt there is a lick of truth in any of this… hogwash (there, that was me being polite)

  • Pat

    What a bunch of hogwash!

  • Ramon

    None of the article is sourced at all. None of this is true. I’m sure there is competition among them, but nothing bitter. This is a ridiculous waste of bandwidth.

  • LoveToCook

    Personally, I’m a Food Channel Junkie. However Paula’s foods are completely unhealthy. Rachel is often too perky, but her foods are quick, with a nod to healthy, and that’s what this country has come too. Was amazed recently, when she mentioned on a trip abroad, that her husband stole a bar book from the UK! I find Martha to be condescending and arrogant towards her guests, and superficial as well. Very unappealing!

  • paulette

    I like all of them especially Paula and Martha they each have their own talents. Don’t let this article fool or anger you it’s just publicity!

  • Mom23lions

    Martha is a self-absorbed snob who used her money to cushion her jail sentence — she is a ridiculous. Rachel can’t really cook and the vast majority of her recipes taste awful. Paula actually makes real food and even though some of the recipes are more home cooking than gourmet, it makes sense to the masses. When you add that with her personality, it makes a winning combination. She is also above the fray of the other two who continue to snipe at each other.

  • http://Yahoo Irene Johnson

    My family and myself would take comfort food over slop anytime!!!

  • Dianna Bott

    It up to the people what they want to buy.

  • deeannek

    Paula has said many times that her food isn’t for eating every night of the week. Of course you would be fat if you ate like that all the time but for special occasions, I would take Paula’s food everytime.

  • simian

    The only thing martha needs to do is shut up, nobody cares now and jeez I eat food because it taste good, not because of the so-called art!!!!

  • http://Yahoo Jim Schwers

    These three ladies have their own very unique style. Depending on your own tastes, each has something special to offer to the world of cooking, especially around the holidays. If any wrong saying was done, it surely shows whoever said it was very insecure but probably the media’s idea to drum up attention to make a buck. True they are competing for viewing audience numbers, but my goodness, neither one is like the other. So how can they really compete.

    • crochetcrone

      They are not only competing for viewers, but the cookbooks and cooking utensils.

  • that guy

    Rachel is the bomb. I have liked her since the first time I saw her. Her recipes are easily made. Aside from the fact that she is not a trained chef (Which see always says she is not.) Her recipes are tasty and simple. She may be the natural successor to Julia Child. She makes a food attainable. I like Paula but I must admit that she uses a lot of butter and sugar. Martha, who I met at a book signing years before she attained great fame, was really on and selling herself. I am not sure that she is phoney but I wouldn’t bet against it.

      Rachel Ray a natural successor to Julia Child??! You sir, obviously know nothing about Julia Child or have been sniffing too much CO2 from the whipped cream cannister. I recommend you crack open one of her cookbooks or do a little research on her incredible background and life. The only thing Rachel has going for her is a good PR/Marketing agency, period. The rest is garbage, including her recipes and persona.

      Pretty much anyone who achieves fame on and from the Food Network (these days) is being over-marketed, hyped and ruined by over-saturating and force-feeding the public with them – first, a show, then another show… and another… then a sitcom (poor Emeril, what was he thinking?? He wasn’t, Food Network and the PR firm did it for him)… then a network game show (Guy Fieri)??

      The Food Network (or is it Food TV?) is selling personality over culinary artistry these days when they bring new “talent” on board, and it all started with Rachel and Paula.

      Taking into consideration how you believe Rachel is a “natural successor” to Julia (gawd, just typing that statement makes me cringe…), you most likely didn’t pay attention when the Food Network had real culinary talents like Ming Sai, Anthony Bourdain, Emeril (yes, he is/was awesome, until FN go a hold of him…) and others. Most of them were smart and saw the PR machine grinding up (Emeril) and got the heck outta Dodge before they were ground up and spit out also.

      Just sayin….

    just a bunch of bs from the inquirer.
    rachel and paula are friends .
    they neither one would ever stoop low for this kind of bs.
    don’t know what martha would do .

  • Dennis

    This is all hogwash.
    For one thing Ray has always said for years on her own show “I don’t bake.”
    So Martha didn’t make her cry like the story kind of says lol.

    Ray doesn’t even pretend to be a chef – she’s always said herself she was a cook.

  • Carmen

    I really don’t believe anything about this story. Martha basically cooks gourmet food, Paula cooks southern comfort food, Rachels makes dishes that the everyday person can make. They all have their individual strengths. So, you can’t really compare them at all. But, I’m an up and coming culinary mistress also. So, the will also be room for me. Are you ready?

  • Donna

    I never have like Martha and bet she dosen’t have many true friends is why she has so many dogs to keep her company!

    They don’t seem to me to be competing for the same audience at all. I have friends who are fans of all 3 of them; the friends who like Martha are the ones with the impeccably kept homes and the need for everything to be “just so”; the friends who like Rachael tend to be working Moms trying their best to keep it together and feed their kids reasonably healthy, hearty fare; and the Paula fans tend to be comfort food junkies. I’m not sure that if one of them dropped off the face of the planet, the other 2 would really see a huge uptick in their fan count. But that’s just me. I really don’t like any of the 3. I used to enjoy Rachael before she went way over the top, in my opinion.

  • NY_foodie

    I’ve been on both Martha and Rachel’s taping sessions, and I have to say Martha is more personal than Rachel Ray in person. In between the shoots, that’s when an audience can see their true side that is off camera, and Martha remains the same. She may not come across as the warmest person, but she is actually friendlier in person. Even when I waved Hi to her once when she was in her vehible at a Stop light 1 wk before her trial, her wave back and her smile comes across genuine. As for Rachel, when I was waiting on the line (all seatings are not guaranteed when a reservation is granted), anyone who didn’t dress up too posh (even though they followed reservation request not to dress up with jeans and being too casual) and/or minorities waiting in the back of the line for an hour were turned away by her staff, claiming that all seatings are full. Yet, they granted access to a few other groups of people who just joined the line who were dressed well. Being a New Yorker who embraces all walks of life and ethnicity and class, I was shocked by her staff’s preferential treatment. So I wouldn’t be surprised if Rachel did make racial statements about Oprah. During the taping, Rachel Ray is not the happy go lucky person I came to love during her 30-Minute Meal self that I thought I knew. She was impatient with her staff (of course the audience can’t hear their dialogue but it was written all over her face), and she didn’t even bother to engage with the audience. I walked away and vow never to watch Rachel’s show again, utterly disappointed with this fake persona.
    Talking about underhanded. The morning me and my friends attended Martha’s taping, we also found out at the morning taping that Rachel Ray stole Martha’s surprise guest Barry Manilow by calling Barry up last minute, and made him appear at her show which airs ealier than Martha’s on the exact same day, which is why Martha’s staff had to scramble for content filler, waiting for Barry who ended up showing up later than anticipated, right before Martha’s live taping ended. He was suppose to be taped in the beginning of the segment.
    Yuck to Rachel!!! Another reason that made me understand this supposedly good old American Pie girl plays dirtier than anybody else. As for Paula Dean, I have never attended her taping yet. I like her personality on screen, but haven’t tried any of her recipes yet.

  • Brandy

    How immature can all three of you idiots be, grow up, you are grown successful women and here you are nit-picking at each other and acting like drama queen pre-teens. I have watched all three of you and I don’t think any of you can cook. My vote is for BOBBY FLAY!!!!

    • Hautetamale

  • Robyn

    Man! I wound hate to be in the public eye like these three women. I have to wounder when any of us has not said something they wish they hadn’t said. The only difference is that these three women are so much in the public eye that everyone talkes about them whether it is true, or has a small amount of truth to it.
    You know that the only man who was ever perfect stated “let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” And look what they did to him.

    I used to like RR and Martha a lot until they both seemed
    to forget where they came from. I really get sick of hearing Paula’s “yall” every other word out of her mouth.
    RR’s family”stories” are really boring. Especially that
    story about her sardine sandwich she used to take to school, the other kids couldn’t tolerate the smell. WELL,
    I’m with the other kids.If no one reads or believes the
    tabloids how come they out so fast at the cash registers?
    I’m not promting them or critisizing them, I don’t know
    how accurate or honest they are, I don’t read them. But
    someone must, so many people seem to have such definite
    opinons of them.As for Marhta Stewart,she really should
    spend more of her time and energy,instead of so much money
    on that no-talent daughter of hers. WHATEVER MARTHA!!!!!

    Rachael Ray cannot cook, she just throws vegetables into pasta most of the time. Paula will give everyone a heart attack, but Martha can do everything.

  • L Elbe

    Gosh darn. It is really a huge world out there, so I would think there is room enough for these 3 women without all the dirty, nasty remarks. If you don’t like one or all of them, don’t waste your time watching them. Sometimes it’s best to keep our remarks to ourself. Were you never taught, “If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all?”

    If you google the Joy Behar show when Rachel Ray was on it this week, rachel clearified the National Enquirer story was untrue about a so called fued between the three of them, besides anyone that believe anything in that magazine or pamplet whatever it is, is an idoit.

      Speaking of liberal crap. The only one worse than Martha is Joy Behar.

  • Charles

    I don’t care for Rachel Ray. On FoodNetwork she rarely receives a 5 rating on her recipes. Paula serves up such unhealthy food and talks so much about pork and the company from which she advertises. After a while, she just seems like a slob.
    By far, Martha Stewart is the most talented of the three but as on every front, the country has turned a little more casual.

  • Charles

    Rachel I LOVE you as a person and also as a coock!!!!!

    TGhe article isn’t particularly well written, but all of your MORONS are way too hard on (especially) Martha Stewart. She paid her debt to society and her “jail record” should not even be brought up – Martha is great. As for the other two, both are great as well. There should be room for ALL THREE of these entertaining, nice, helpful ladies. Those of you who are simply either jealous or hate-mongers just need to shut up.

    Come on people, there is enough room in the industry to accommodate everybody. Get a grip and shut up. They are all marvelous women who cook differently to suit different people. Why do you all feel like you have to trash out somebody to make a statement. Nobody is as entertaining as Ramsey’s Kitchen, and what a potty mouth, but he is still the greatest in what he does best. Chill out people and buy all their books and pick out what you want to cook. Good grief.

  • charles fox

    These ladies,who are all well PAID,PUBLICIZED.and KNOWN are acting like the three spoiled children they are. All of them are talented in their own unique ways and it is good that they are NOT the same. Martha Stewart is good at the sophisticated areas of cooking and entertaining,Paula Deen is good at Southern style cuisine and entertaining,while Rachael Ray excels at being pragmatic in the kitchen-and at times,even frugal. They are ALL Wonderful. I have to agree,though,that none of the three could even begin to hold a candle to Julia Child or Justin Wilson. Now THEY were the Masters……

  • Darcy

    Bottom line. Rachael Ray is and always will be annoying. It’s true. She admits she has no formal cooking background. She’s nothing but a TV personality. A talentless one at that. It’s time for her 15 minutes to be up. I’m not a big Martha fan however the woman is extremely talented in so many areas. No one can deny this. She broke the ground for many. As for Paula, I adore and respect her. If you are aware of her life story, you might too. She can cook! Her food might bring on a heart attack but it’s not the worse way to go!

  • http://www.facebook.com KALARA

    well Rachael Ray she do more charity then Martha and and she even teah kids and show people how to eat healthy and buy food from your local market.special fresh vegetable and fruits. Yeah the Problem about Martha she put herself up then other who surround her. she think she is all that and she is not.

  • Suki

    Rachael Ray doesn’t seem genuine to me anymore, more like an act she’s put on for the camera. Martha has some lovely ideas but is a total snob. In her defense however, I don’t think she tries to hide the fact that she’s a snob. For some reason, a big plus for Martha is that she’s an animal lover. Her French Bulldogs are the cutest dogs ever! Paula’s food always looks delicious, who doesn’t love butter? Just eat in moderation and it’s all good. Paula can hardly be blamed for the obese women in this country. I do wish Paula didn’t wear that horrible chinchilla fur coat though, disgusting and pretentious.

  • Judy

    I love RR. Martha is a snob that talks over every one of her guests like her way is the only way and it was her idea to do it that way. Paula is a butter freak, but don’t use butter,use a healthy choice of the ingredient that she uses. As for Rach and pasta, it’s good and whole wheat pasta is good for you, make your own recipe and your own choices, it’s a recipe, use your head. DUH!!!

      I completely agree with you about Rachel and Paula Deen, they are both HACKS. And, although I don’t particularly like Martha Stewart and suspect she is the bit*h everyone says she is, at least she has class and taste. The other two are HILLBILLIES, as far as I’m concerned.

    First, many are unaware that Rachel Ray is fake and completely unlikeable. Rachel’s contrived TV persona (Bubbly Pinhead Munchkin) that is seen on television is nowhere near her “Ugly” personality in real life. Oprah made a mistake producing Rachel’s show and there are many who have been openly waiting for Rachel’s demise (This article is true and Rachel is just as bitter and petty as implied). Second, each of the three have appeal to a different audience. Martha is for the affluent and educated, Rachel is for the sloppy loud, and Paula is a sweetie for the southern fried. Rachel Ray is the one that should be slapped, right off television.

  • poopsie

    Martha Stewart is, no doubt, the bit_ch that everyone says she is, but at least she has class and taste. Paula Deen and Rachel Ray are hillbillies with NO CLASS…. and their recipes SUCK…. their food tastes like sh*t.

    I love Paula Dean. She is from one of the most beautiful and gracious cities in the USA, Savannah, Georgia.

    One of the greatest pleasures in life is good food. Paula, like the late great Julia Child, is not afraid to use a lot more butter and cream. It makes for a delicious meal.

    Paula is a charming and lovely lady.

  • http://yahoo Margie

    i used to like Rachael Ray, now I can’t stand her. Paula is ok, takes advantage of her southern accent. Now Martha Stewart should be put out to pasture. She is rude, interrupts her guests constantly, just watch her show, and she’s old.
    Paula does use real butter and unhealthy stuff (some people like this) But in this day and age we choose not to. They should stop this reign and remember when they weren;t so famous. Let’s just cook………..

  • Emily

    I don’t think that’s seriously true… And people, stop bickering. All three ladies will always have their crowd of followers. I personally like Rachael. I do not like Paula because of the unhealthy food she makes, and Martha just isn’t my kind of person.

    I think that people need to get their facts straight before they comment on nonsense stories like this.

  • Ralph

    I like Paula the best, she’s sincere, honest and very hard working. Rachel just had good LUCK!! But has no business bad mouthing anyone, because she can be very annoying. Martha I just can’t stand… She is a back stabbing, user who would steal from anyone to get ahead. Remember that is why she went to jail….. SCAMMER, talented SCAMMER, very good at it too I might add… Neither of them can come close to Paula Dean!!!!

  • ron hanforth

    kick their ass Paula!

  • Patti Myers

    I think that Paula is the most gracious person! Martha went to prison for her crimes & if she had not been a celebrity, she would not have gotten off so easily! & then to say all of those horrible things about Rachel with her sitting right there totally proves the vicious & vindictive person she really is!! She may be able to wax floors, but she didn’t learn anything about herself & her obvious attitude problem! I think that Paula is great & that Rachel deserves an apology from Martha!! I think we should all ban Martha Stewart!!

  • http://yahoo Carol B

    I get the impression that Paula is too much of a fake southern belle wanna-be. I have family that lives in Georgia, none of them drawl like she does. I get irritated when she mispronounces words then pauses, I guess its for comic effect, I just don’t buy into it. Some of her recipes are good, but most are nothing short of slop, and I can’t bear to watch the whole show because she grates on my nerves.
    Rachael is not as good as she used to be, but her recipes are realistic. I get the impression that she is stressed out while her show is on, and I feel she may be burning out soon.
    Martha…never did like her shows, she really does come off as a snob. I will admit, though, I do read and use many of her recipes and techniques.
    There are many new cooking stars and shows on TV. This is an exiting time for this genre. Before long there will be new icons for us to critique.
    Shame on them for badmouthing each other.

  • Tibby Lee

    I’am 74yrs old & my husband is 75, if we die tomorrow we can honestly say we enjoyed eating Paula Deens recipes. These recipes happen to be the ones we were raised on &

    We have regular check-ups and so far the butter hasn’t effected our hearts. My husband loves his veggies cooked in fatback like his mother did. My children all weigh less than 120lbs (all 4).

      Actually, they are all fakes. If you have the money, you can hire any one to cook, ect. and take credit for it. In my seventies, I have only known a hand full of GOOD cooks.

    I just want to say that this article is just the kind that fosters the very namecalling and feuding that it points out. Why, if you truly want to stop the hairy situation, are you telling everything that you THINK you might know? Just hush and let it die down! If someone is saying something bad about ME, just keep it to yourself! I don’t want to know. Just let me think they are great people. I don’t need all of that strife festering in me and I think we should do others the same favor!
