The Five: Odd things Larry King and Rachael Ray said

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 19th 2006 9:19AM

Rachael RayLarry King's guest on CNN last night was cooking show/talk show/magazine icon Rachael Ray. After a truly disturbing segue from talking about the autopsy of Anna Nicole Smith's son to talking to Ray about salad and pasta, they show footage of Ray taking Larry shopping (I swear Larry has never shopped before) and talked about Oprah's non-stop praise of Ray (Oprah, um, produces Ray's show). But the truly odd thing about the interview were the number of bizarre questions and/or statements made by Larry and Rachael. Some of them are out of context, but most of them are bizarre no matter what the context:

"Has your pit bull ever killed anyone?" (Larry)

"That's even bigger than daddy's!" (Rachael)

"Mario, do you own a restaurant?" (Larry, to guest Mario Batali, world famous chef who owns eight restaurants)

"What's a pepper shaker?" (Larry)

"Do you think there's a danger she'll be overexposed?" (Larry, to "surprise" guest John, Rachael's husband)

Yall, stop being haters about Rachel Ray. You dont like her then change the channel. She is who she is and some people must like her or she wouldn't have so many shows going on and selling so many cookbooks. I do agree that she is striking while the iron is still hot but I hope it doesnt lead her burnout and one person can only do so many things at once. I do not see how she is doing it all now!!! I do like Rachel and her shows. Her talk show should only get better with time. Its new territory for her but she seems to tackle everything else. Best of luck to her in all her ventures...!!! Hey, everyone, just wish her well. In my opinion, It is always nice to see someone fullfill their dreams and it looks like she almost has it all...YOU GO RACHEL...and btw...I would like to see those who are posting she is fat...She is just the size of the average real American woman her age, not some always starving anorexic cokehead.

Rachel Ray SHOULD open burger joints...cause she can't cook worth a crap anyway. So sure , why not open up a fast food "restaurant" and "cook" some more food to give America hips just like Rachel Ray... "yum - o". Chili dog nachos with some death on the side for everyone!!

I think Rachel Ray is refreshing. I am a 86 yr. old Grandma and have been around the corner a bit. I be-
ieve most of the peers her age are a "bit jealous".
don't you think? She's genuine and tells it like it is
or what we want to hear and she is very interesting. Most of all you can learn some good points from her and
you young 'uns out there could find some good things to
cook for the people you love or should love!

I think Rachel is a doll..cute and perky. She's very enthusiastic and it comes across as geniune. Unfortunately, she's trying to strike while the iron's hot and I'm afraid she's becoming overexposed. Too many things going on in her career and the American public likes to build you up just to tear you down.

I dont like the new show that Rachel Ray has.
I like the show $40 dollars a day.
She is extremely too hyper for me in her new show.
