        I use to like her but now she's too purky acting. She's not a bad person or anything just not a favorite of mine.

    Obnoxious and over-rated. Lemme tell you she's no Martha Stewart. I don't understand why people compare her to Martha. Martha doesn't have a main niche that she sticks with she gives tips on cooking, cleaning, parties all sorts of things. Rachel just cooks so stop comparing her with Martha!

    Well, she's the one who met with former president Bill Clinton today.  I saw it on TV.  It is kinda strange that he had just returned to the US right after he had attended the funeral of former Russian president Boris Yeltsin yesterday.  And Clinton was accompanied by former president George H. W. Bush too.

    She's a no-talent, clueless brat. Ray is an attention-seeker and digs for money.

    Let's just say she's too over-the-top, fake, and obnoxious.

    Very mixed opinions on Rachael Ray.

    She is ALRIGHT, but to say amazing is a long shot, IMHO. Rachael can cook a meal in 30 minutes - many people can. She just made the move to market and copyright it. Home cooks have made meals like that for years - and much healthier.

    If you have ever seen "Food Network: Unwrapped," you learn Rachael actually has pre-cut veggies and such. Her assistant cuts them up backstage, then dumps them on her cutting board right before coming back to a commercial.

    I get tired of a constant comparison to Martha. Martha cooks, gardens, and has millions (literally) of homemaking tips. All Rachael does is cook (especially on 30MM) and chat with celebs.

    She did use to be really good until she became such a cliche. Back in 2004, even, she was much more toned-down. She is very loud, and just isn't the greatest television personality...so, that's my thoughts of Ray in a nutshell.

    I'm with Bettywhitefan. My feelings on Rachael are also mixed, but for different reasons.

    She can be entertaining. I will watch 30 Minute Meals sometimes if there's nothing else on. Her stories that she tells while she's cooking are fun, but come too often and sometimes make her forget to tell you what she's doing with the food. But she does seem like a nice, fun, honestly good person.

    However, I do find her obnoxious more than once in a while. It annoys the hell out of me when she does her laugh at the end of a joke she makes (this is especially annoying when it's on one of her shows when she's around other people, and none of the other people laugh). She's too loud, and can be corny when it comes to her jokes. Another thing - put her in a room with someone else, and she tries a little too hard to make it look like they're having a good time.

    As for her food...too spicy for me in general. A lot of her recipies I'd make, but alter it to suit my tastes.

    You know what's 'douche' about Rachael Ray? About how she never measures anything, never took a day of culinary school in her life, ruins healthy lean turkey burgers by stuffing it with cheese and bacon, has an unhealthy obsession with bacon, uses chicken stock as a crutch for everything, and loads up on cooking with more expensive pre-packaged & sliced food. I'd have to imagine that no two dishes taste alike from her. And I haven't even gotten to her personality.

    Martha, despite the criminal she is, at least does her show with class, grace and composure, and knows what she's doing and does it professionally. Watching Rachael Ray is like watching a cheerleader (which she was) throwing a big old self love-fest party. And she says "Yaaaaayyyyyy!!!" way too much. She probably gets all that energy when she's off-camera, chain smoking Marlboro Reds and chugging mug after mug of Dunkin Donuts coffee, which we all know she endorses.
