I have always secretly despised Rachel I have a reason besides the wretched "EVOO"

Anthony Bourdain Blasts Rachael Ray's Doughnut Deal

Anthony Bourdain, he of the brilliant cuisine and the caustic mouth has blasted Rachael Ray's new deal with Dunkin' Donuts.
RACHAEL Ray is getting a royal dunkin' from Anthony Bourdain for her big-bucks endorsement deal with Dunkin' Donuts. The prickly chef and "Kitchen Confidential" author says of the Food Network cutie in next month's Outside magazine: "She's got a magazine, a TV empire, all these best-selling books - I'm guessing she's not hurting for money. She's hugely influential, particularly with children. And she's endorsing Dunkin' Donuts. It's like endorsing crack for kids."

Bourdain adds: "I'm not a very ethical guy. I don't have a lot of principles. But somehow that seems to me over the line. Juvenile diabetes has exploded. Half of Americans don't have necks. And she's up there saying, 'Eat some [bleeping] Dunkin' Donuts. You look great in that swimsuit - eat another doughnut!' That's evil."

PS - The add that this photo spawned from was pulled because Rachael's scarf loks too "Arab"

I've never kept it a secret that I despise her. Yet, I am still oddly drawn to watch her. I feel the same way about that blond, freakishly perky Samantha woman who travels to various locales. My latest beef with Ray, however, is the goddamn dog food line called - Delish. Ugh!

Shes a diva and a sellout.
A friend of mine is trying to get booked on her show, and they have her jumping through all kinds of hoops- its ridiculous.
