Rachael Ray

I'm going to be on it. Today. Actually, we filmed it last week... The creepy thing is that I sort of actually liked her. Is that weird?


Blogger Melanie's Randomness said...

Ohh I'm at work I can't watch it!! I'm so going to look for it later on Hulu!! Good luck!!

I'm reading your book Cleaving now. You are one interesting lady!!

Blogger Everyday Goddess said...

I stopped watching her show because I got tired of watching her playing the food and talking to it like it was some kind of pet animal.

I can see how she might be more fun without the food connection though.

Maybe you can teach her something.

6:36 AM  
Blogger Laural Dawn said...

That's awesome.

Someone sent me a link about you being on the show earlier this week, and I'm recording it. Can't wait.

My son is a big Rachael Fan and we watch taped episodes together on the weekend. It will be cool for him to see you. (but I may skip reading Cleaving to him for now!)

P.S. thanks for your comment on my blog :) you're amazing.

Saw her a few years ago outside the W hotel in Union Square. She was draggin' on a cigarette and knockin' back a martini. It wasn't the perky little thing you see on tv. Maybe there's more that meets the eye after all. One can only hope...HA!

Congratulation on the spot!

Don't watch her show . . too perky . . but I'll check hulu as someone previously wrote. Did you butcher something while discussing "Cleaving"?

8:50 AM  
Blogger Stephanie said...

Hmmm. Maybe I'll record it on my DVR and fast forward through all the annoying Rachael Ray parts where she talks and stuff.

It's good to know you kind of liked her. Maybe there's a real human in there somewhere after all?

Why is it creepy to like her? She's f'n adorable.

Oh I love Rachael Ray- she is the one who actually got me to really enjoy cooking. I've been married for 6.5 years and the first few years I wasn't that great and I never ever liked her until I watched her one day and thought how adorable she was. Because of her, I'm now a pretty good cook and I love all of her cookware- she's a flippin Genius and I can't wait to see you on the show.

I kind of like her, but I only see the show about once a year, so that's helpful. However, I would tune in every day if she was draggin' on a ciggie and knockin' back a martini a la JuicyBits!!!

R. Ray rocks! Not weird at all to like her.

10:29 PM  
Blogger ybiben said...

yea the only people I know that really have any criticisms of her are professional chefs who don't like how she simplifies approaches to cooking. I'm like maaann, at least someone is trying help day to day people find ways to save money and eat better. eating out should be treated as a luxury, but then I don't have gobs of money to throw away so I guess some people just like to show off or something. :P

Blogger Jody said...

I watched the clip on-line and I have to say that the issue with it was that while Julie DID plug CLEAVING, she didn't exactly say what the book was about.

All she said is that the book was about her 6 month butcher apprenticeship.

But the book is so much more, isn't it?

Drat! I missed it! Will look for it on Hulu!
You should have a show!

8:21 PM  
Blogger Suzie said...

Didn't read the other comments, but YES, it's weird you liked her. She's a phony pig and an abomination to all that is good in the world of food.

PS: Did she talk to you about her "running?" LIE.

I only saw it because I'm down with pneumonia and wanted to see YOU. I was waiting for you to kick the living shit out of her fat ass. I also regret the audience didn't get a copy of Cleaving. 90% of them couldn't have handled the reality.

Hope the movie wins buku awards so you continue to have the freedom to write what you want and not what an editor demands.

Jody, babe... Give it a rest. Seriously, I'd love to give you a hug and make it all better, but mostly you just need to move on.

I didn't get to the entire plot of Cleaving because TV is a very short and quick medium and there wasn't the time. If you think I'm interested, as a rule, in hiding what my book's about, well, you're pretty silly.

yes that's weird because it seems as though she tries too hard. I also don't understand why she is doing a talk sho when her supposed specialty is cooking and food.

I just saw the movie last night and I have to say, although I don't know much about anything, I have to comment on the fact that you were still a dedicated Julia fan even after she didn't have something nice to say when she heard about this blog... that was such a heartwrenching moment for me... so frustrating... I just wanted to know how much truth there was to that or if it was all for Hollywood?

Hello Julie,
Congrats on the show! This comment is not really in regards to your current post though. It is in regards to the movie. First let me start out by saying that I totally relate to you and to Julia and completely enjoyed the movie. However, there was something missing that was of utmost importance to the viewing public, that was sadly left out. I watched the special features in hopes it would answer my question, but it was not there either. I am sure that you have received this question I am about to ask of you from other fans of Julia and yourself, so here goes... What ever happened with Julia and her feelings and thoughts about your blog? Did you ever get the amazing privilege of meeting or talking with her personally about it? America needs to know!!!
Thanks for a great blog and a wonderful movie to escape with!

Well of course you are going to like her. She is a foodie, and she is passionate about good food and gourmet flavor. That is a passion you both have in common. To hell with what all the boring humans have tried to say about dear Rachel Ray. She is making the most out of her life, following her passion, food and sharing it with people! Those people "without a life" are the ones with the problem. Trying to rain on a joyous persons food-love-passion-parade! Bonn Appetite!

I have just read your article in today's UK Guardian trying to defend your adultery. You really don't get it, do you?

My wife had an affair. It was not the act of sex, nor the infidelity which was so heinous. It was the act of betrayal.

We had committed ourselves to each other. She had broken that committment while professing to love me.

She had broken my trust in the person I loved so much that I could no longer trust anyone else. She broke my trust in the world. If I could not trust her who could I trust?

The betrayal was further compounded by the fact that we had two children. She also betyrayed them. They could no longer trust anyone else. The mother who they loved and who professed that she loved them quite simply ignored them when she had her "fling".

That is why women and men like you should be branded with a large letter "A". To show that they are completely untrustworthy. If they betray somebody who trusts them implicitly, they seem the sort of people who could betray anyone at all.

So although your smug writing trys to justify what you did, it does not. It simply shows your arrogance, flaunting your affair yet again and betraying publicly, once again, those you profess to love.

Julie, your book Cleaving kinda sucks. I can't quite believe that you are so unknowingly selfish. I know you think you get a lot of hateful comments from self righteous people that you ignore as "they don't understand" but people really do understand. I think your lack of remorse is what inspires people to tell you what they think you did was really, really horrible. I hope that you are good to Eric now, as if he's as nice as you make out then you are damn lucky...

7:42 AM  
Blogger Chef at Heart said...

Ok. Julie.... So I now read the past few blogs and decide to check out random book reviews on your book "Cleaving". OMG...what were you thinking girl! Has all of this whirlwind attention since Julie & Julia gone straight to you frickin head! I am sooooo disappointed. Like one of the reviews I read said, "Cleaving never should have come out of the drawer in the night stand"!. Amen to that! But one MAJOR bright point I do have to thank you for from "Julie and Julia", the book and the film, is that your brought Julia Child brilliantly back into my life. Julia is what the story is really about, and SHE is the one I will celebrate!!! So, the DVD we purchased, "My Life In France", I recently added to my "keepers collection", and even your "Julie & Julia" book, are all for Julia. "Cleaving" will NEVER be added to my book collection, so you can not count on me for any royalties on that one. I am very close to ending blogging with you, but I am really curious to see if you respond to your "fans". You owe us that much I believe. So, this "fan", and probably many others, is waiting for your comments. It's your turn Julie.

Dear Orang Utang (and Julie)-

To say that your wife "ignored" your children because she had an affair is preposterous. I hope you're not feeding that poison to your children. Things change in relationships. People change. Commitments change. You can't promise anything for forever...I would hope after reading both of Julie's books, that she would STOP IT(which is not my business to say, but there you go.). But it's her choice. You can't change who you are. But that said, who you are changes all the time. I don't want to live in a society of puritans. I want mess and love and sex and pain. If there was no chance that the other person could ever leave you, could ever stop loving you, or ever love someone else, how could you cherish it? I want to feel the good and the bad. Life is good and messy. And there's hope for us all.

Bitterness is a lethal infection. The longer you let that sit in your body, the less of you there will be. You have to let go.

11:19 PM  
Blogger Orang Utang said...

Dear Jaclyn,

You obviously do not get it either.

As I said, it was not the sex, nor the infidelity. It was the betrayal of trust.

That is nothing to do with being a puritan. It is to do with being a human being.

If my wife had told me that she was attracted to this other person and that she was thinking of having a fling then I would have been given a choice to accept this or end our marriage. She did not do this. She carried on her affair while leaving us all to continue believing that she was a loving, faithful wife and mother.

If she had not been found out, who knows how long this would have gone on?

I, like you, believe that committments change. And so she should have been honest about this. Instead she let me continue working hard for my family, believing I was building for all of our futures.

I do not believe that teaching my children to be faithful, honest and trustworthy is feeding them poison. I believe that it is teaching them to be decent human beings. If more people were faithful, honest and trustworthy then maybe our societies would not be in the mess that they seem to be in.

I've basically said my piece so will end on one final note. If you have a partner and feel, at any time, that you wish to cheat on him/her, then please be honest and end your reltionship instead of being deceitful. Don't try to have your cake and to eat it at the same time. It will only end in heartache for all concerned.

Blogger Jessica said...

Orang Utang,
No one in this workd is perfect. Sometimes affairs are a symptoms of a bad marriage to begin with. Sometimes the person who was unfaithful was very depressed and could not help themselves. Everyone makes bad mistakes. It is what they do after the mistake that is so important...go to counseling, figure themselves out, try and make things right. If your wife never tried to make herself a better person- for that I am sorry. Not everyone who makes the mistake however should be branded forever as a BAD dishonest person. Some people truley need help.

Julia, a ver para empezar tengo que pedir disculpas por expresarme en otra lengua, pero como existe el google translate prefiero que al menos mi primer comentario tenga algo de sentido :)

Acabo de ver la pelicula de Julie & Julia y me ha encantado, no es que sea precisamente un amante de la cocina (siempre he considerado una perdida de tiempo pasar tantas horas cuando te lo comes en 5 minutos), pero me han dado ganas de ponerme en los fogones,,

Veo que tenemos casi la misma edad, aunque mi vida es un verdadero desastre, pero me gustara seguir el blog.

Por cierto también tengo dos mascotas una perra y una gata, ya te las presentare y siento lo de tu perro , se siente uno fatal, y quien dice que es mas o menos tragedia?

Tengo que estudiar ingles y participar en el blog me ira genial, espero que me perdones mis miles de faltas que comentare a partir de ahora.

Hasta mañana :)

See you tomorrow

So we know you cheated on your husband, did you also cheat on your blog? That is to say, be honest now, as we all suspect, you gave up on aspics, didn't you? It's funny how so many women are on your side, because they understand that it's an unforgivable sin to be nice, so you had to cheat, but will they be so understanding about you lying to them? If you have any guts or integrity you will answer this question rather than delete it. I will know your answer either way.

I can't stand Rachel. Her voice is like a chalk board being scratched. I wish they (the Networks) would give you your own cooking show. That, I would watch. Really. Blogs are nice and everything, but TV, that's where you could leave a lasting impression, Hon! No offense to your alter-ego of Ms. Adams, but we want the real Julie Powell. On my seventh go 'round for your AudioBook on my .mp3 player! Encore, Julie! Encore!

I love Rachel Ray she grows on you. Funny thing I truly believe that if I met her in person we would hit it off great ... be close cooking friends.

Obviously I missed the show, since I work morning shifts at a cafe/bakery. I have been a Racheal Ray fan since, gosh, day one of her show on Food Network. It was because of her that the idea of becoming a chef crossed my mind. I tried to record her talk/cooking/entertainment show that comes on at 10 am here in good ole Alabama, but alas, it never seemed to record. I finally did get to watch it one beautiful morning and to my shock, I highly disliked it. Again, I love Racheal, but that show just makes her look too.... fake?? I am sure that you made the show interesting and I again do hate that I did miss it. I do have to say that your Julie/Julia project, book and the movie that came out are probablly some of my favorite things to read and watch. Again I am a student at Culinard in Birmingham, AL and just reading those blogs and watching the movie makes me want to be finished with school fast. When I am done with classes in December of this year, I will be able to call myself a pastry chef. Interesting that I will be probablly one of the oldest in my class. I turn 30 in April and most of my classmates are in their early 20's... Now that seems weird!

I just watched your movie. :) I loved it. Bravo...

I was sorry to hear about your dog. I missed the R/R show. We don't get her on the West Coast. ;) I am glad to say. I stopped watching her when I lived on the East Coast, why? because of her tongue! Every notice when she is talking she licks each corner of her lips. Very disturbing..

Hey, this is actually the first actual blog I have ever been on. I saw the movie but didnt know it was a book. But believe me, I'm going to read it! It kind of gave me the idea of having my own blog. It would be similar, but I am not brave enough to cook my way through that many recipies! It's hard to cook for my picky husband, but I love, love, love to cook! Do you have any words of advice to starting a cooking blog that will allow people to give me ideas as well as tell others what I know? I have that kind of job where I sit at a desk 40 hours a week with nothing fun to do after work, except the entertainment from my dogs! But cooking is fun and I love trying new things...

Wow, how the F@*K did we go from Rachael "OMG-She's-So-Perky-I-Want-To-Hit-Her-In-The-Face-With-A-Frying Pan" Ray to Julie's infidelity?

Yes, Julie made a mistake but so did Eric.

Julie, you were courageous for telling the truth. I also mentioned it on a thread on your FB account.

People, lay off! If you don't like it, then just go away!

Okay, so--just saw the film, found the blog, bla bla bla. I'm wondering if you're aware that you shouldn't write things like this after you've been invited onto someone's popular show to plug your book. Not only have you thrown some doubt as to your feelings about your gracious hostess, but you've opened the door for people to say things like:

"[Rachael Ray]'s a phony pig and an abomination to all that is good in the world of food. "


"Rachael 'OMG-She's-So-Perky-I-Want-To-Hit-Her-In-The-Face-With-A-Frying Pan' Ray"

I'm sure that Rachael Ray could have found other guests who wouldn't let their blog readers shit talk her or who wouldn't insinuate that it's bad to like her. And I'm quite sure that there will be other hosts in the future who will shy away from inviting you on, thanks to this post. Not good for business, that.

Well Julie. I just saw Julie and Julia. I cried so much! I just loved it. Such a beautiful story. I admire your strenght, and of course I love Julia. It is true, about the butter at the end of the movie? That's just lovely. With affection, from Argentina. Carolina

Julie I cant't wait to see you on Rachael Ray. I'm on a weight loss mission determined to eat fun,healthy foods and lose weight too. I'm blogging about it - inspired by you by the way. Anyway, it's not weird that you like her - she's got a likeable thing going although I'm not sure what it is? Debi

Don't understand why it's weird that you like Rachel Ray. She's always positive, you learn some stuff about cooking and she's not so saccharine or pretentious that you want to gag...I like her too...oh yeah...she's got nice cans and yams to boot...

Ya know . . . I used to love Rachel, but now she's all "glammed up" for TV and she's always peddling her cooking utensils on screen. She's been overplayed. Tired. Tired. Tired.

First of all Julie, your a doll and your talent better than butter, almost. I ran into Rachel Ray in NYC, she was rude, taunt and stuck-up; but other than that she's ok. I mean she's no Martha, but than again who is?
Your friend,

Julie, first of all i'm a biggest fan. No seriously. I'm over three pounds by 2 lousy pounds and losing. Anyway your one hell of a lady. Better than butter, well almost. I ran into Rachel Ray in NYC, literally knocking my packages out of my hand and on to a wet street. She was rude, stuck-up and totally classless, still I'm sure she loves her Mom. She's no Martha but than again who is.
Thanks for being you.

I love Rachel Ray, she's so peppy. Almost nobody else can pull it off. Julia Child was a very cheerful person as well: maybe it's a flip side of the coin thing. If you were very grouchy, for example.

I loved your movie about Julie and Julia and your blog. It has inspired me to be different and unique in my own writing style. I love cooking and recipes but like RR and with the economic down side, I have to cook using what I have in my kitchen and sometimes I don't have all the ingredients so I make the best use with what I have to cook with. Bon Appetit!

11:21 PM  
Blogger Diane Phillips said...

Have you ever thought about writing with regards to another cook like you did Julia Child...There is Paula Dean and her interesting life among tons of other possible cooks you could conspire with. What an interesting sequel to the Julia and Julie movie that would be. Consider it because you have the potential to be something greater than just a sampler!

Blogger Diane Phillips said...

On another note you could write about Rachel Rae and try all her fantastic recipes and use her cooking utensil to get a feel of what it would be like to cook with her every day. Set up DVR, check out all her cookbooks and begin the quest to write about the average cook and what it feels like to have the bare minimum of ingredients. America would die to hear how you would attack that feat!
