Does Rachel Ray Have Some Splainin' To Do?

Posted by: David Kiley on January 22, 2008


New York magazine’s food blog, Grub Street, has posted a damning report from the set of the latest Dunkin’ Donuts commercial. According to an eyewitness, Ray reportedly “took one sip of her Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, yelled ‘What is this shit? Get me MY coffee,’ and would not continue until she was given ‘her’ coffee—i.e., Starbucks.”

The wholly predictable response from Ray posted in a new Grub STreet item: “It’s ridiculous. It’s absolutely ridiculous.”

I’m on record as saying that I can’t stand this hopelessly perky barely competent cook. I do know two things about this, though.

1. DD latte stinks.
2. Ray, as a former pitch-dish for Burger King, will clearly say or do anything for a buck.

Everytime I ponder whether Ray is the silliest and most shallow of all the food divas, she manages to drain a little more out of her own pool.

I happen to like the DD latte on most occasions, but with the differences in training for DD and SB, you can see why the lattes are not all equal. If a seasoned worker has made the DD latte- it is great. If a newbie is on the machine, it taste like dirt! As for RR, I cannot even believe the amount of commercials, shows, mags, etc. she has going- is she broke or crazy?
