Does anyone else detest Rachel Ray?

I just intensely dislike her. She comes on after Regis and Kelly in my area, and I have to stop whatever I am doing and change the channel. There is something so fake, so plastic about her, it's like nails on a chalkboard to me. Her laugh makes me cringe. Anybody else feel this way?

No. I like her and her down to earth personality, there is nothing la-de-dah or phony about her.

Her show is very popular, so I know most people don't react to her as I do. I wonder sometimes if we don't have a "chemical" response to celebrities, in much the same way that we sometimes do with the people we meet in person. You know the feeling, you lay eyes on someone for the first time, and instantly like or dislike them. I guess it's similar to that.

I agree with Cinddvs. I can't stand Rachel or Kelly, for that matter. I don't DO perky. Perky makes me want to beotch slap 'em and say 'Get REAL!' How much coffee must it take to be that perky that early in the morning...after at least two hours of makeup and hairdressing beforehand? It is ridiculously incredible. We need to slap some sense into 'em and all the perky AM news anchors, as well. LOL--you obviously got me started on a pet peeve of mine.

I like to watch her show 30 minute meals to get new recipe ideas but I admit sometimes she can grind on the nerves. However we just make fun of her and get some laughs. Sometimes when I am eating out at a resteraunt I will take a bite and go YUMMO!!!!!! or PARTY IN MY MOUTH TIME RIGHT NOW. lol.

I've never been able to bring myself to watch her morning talk show but I have watched her shows on the Food Network. I like some of her recipes but it irritates the crap out of me to watch her. Everytime she says EVOO I just want to cringe. She's just too hyper and peppy. She makes me think of the cheerleaders I went to high school with that I just wanted to slap.

My fiancee loves to watch her cooking show Thirty Minute Meals. I have tried to sit there to watch the show with her but these days I find Rachel to be annoying mre then anything. I think it has something to do with her voice or something. Oh well for my fiancee I will do just about anything, even watch Rachels show.

I don't like her either...she is a total phony. She was on a morning radio show here in Atlanta a couple of years back (before she became as big as she is right now) and one of the girls was very excited to meet her. When she arrived at the station she was rude to everyone and pretty much blew them all off until she got on air when she put her cute little act on...she left right after and I guess was a total beeyatch the whole time
