She is a lovely lady, but interrupts a lot, especially when there is a professional chef demonstrating a skill. She should really let her guest shine instead of showing off. Also, I do not understand that long hair flowing over her food. Where I am from, it's illegal for cooks to prepare food without having their hair tied.
She is a cook and should stick with the 30 minute meals. She is not a talk show host. I stopped watching her when she became a talk show host. I did however like her cooking. I just think she needs to stick with teaching us to cook and nothing else.
You notice that when she talks to guests and when preparing meals she is perky and laughs and smiles. However when it's one on one questions with her and the audience she is very serious, unsmiling. And almost bored/mean and doesn't engage in conversation. Why does she bother. It's almost like bothering her and she rushes people along to end the forced interaction. Sometims seems mean
OMG!!! All these comments are HILARIOUS!!!! Laughing at the "right,right, right" and "sure,sure. Also on this episode she consistently interrupted Emeril. He could barely finish a sentence without being cut of I agree, Rachel needs to be on a makeover segment. Get something new other than a black blazer, jeans and ugly black boots/runners. How about wearing hair in a ponytail or off the face when cooking? Aren't cooks/chefs supposed to wear hats or have their hair back etc? How about some nice dresses and heels or something colourful? Yes I agree Rachel does interrupt her guests and then proceeds to tell us an example of her husband in that situation etc.
Why can't the wardrobe and hair people be adventurouse and use clips and elastic bands with her hair and put something else on her other than jeans etc And.. she says she goes to the gym? obviously just for exercise purposes and not for actual weight loss.
Like so many others, I wish Rachael would shut up- enough already! She admits that she is a cook, not a chef, yet can't let the professionals finish a thought- she has to jump in to prove she knows it all. Same if the guest is a doctor, beauty expert, actor, -whatever- she knows it all! Why even have any guests? She must have some fans, since the show is in its 10th season. Given that, doesn't she think they have heard her stories often enough? Like how to score meat to make the perfect burger, shaving garlic Pauley thin, living in the Adirondacks, slathering something delicious all over her arm & eating it, she & John got married in Italy, he's a lawyer, musician & a mixologist, her mama is a little Sicilian woman, she was an ice cream girl- right, right, right- sure, sure, sure!!! Enough! The show needs to be done! I saw a repeat the other day with her girlfriend G doing a few hairdos- don't know which of them says "literally" more- so annoying! And I agree that her hair needs to be pulled off her face. Her best hairstyle was on 30 Minute Meals when she had it layered/feathered & about chin/mid-neck length.
So the show has been renewed- not sure how because she didn't learn anything over the summer- still as loud, disruptive & obnoxious as ever!
The latest phrase she needs to drop is that "she's literally drooling" over whatever she or a guest is making! Very unappetizing to even visualize that! And again- the overuse of the word "literally".
2/15/17-recycling at its worst: aluminum foil pants! Who is her stylist? And her comments about her pit bull daughter when the couple with 4 little adopted girls were on were inappropriate - guess she'll never learn!
I like this show for the guests and their tips on cooking and organization. I'm not fond of her loudness and her crazy unprofessional sounds, and not fond of some of her recipes because they take too many ingredients and/or aren't things I'd eat. Many recipes are unhealthy and many include ingredients that most people wouldn't already have.
Rachael says she never watches herself on TV. She needs to start, and then MAYBE she will realize how RUDE she is to her guests. I mean, WHY even have them there if she's going to cut them off, finish all their sentences or blurt out their "tips" before they even do---just so SHE can get the credit for it?? Even my kids mentioned how rude she is and how she interrupts the guests. My sis-in-law who loves cooking said that her and her husband stopped watching the show for the exact same reason---because of how she talks over the guests. As I watch her during her own cooking segments, I wonder how SHE would like it if someone did that to her during her entire demonstration---maybe someone SHOULD. Anyhow, she's annoying, and it'd be nice if someone from the show would tell her to STOP.
I know it is a talk show, but come on! Let your guests finish a sentence. Why even have guests? Just do it yourself. It would be easier to watch. I've only watched a handfull of times and she has done this on EVERY show. You would think the producers would let her know. It's rude. I'm changing the channel.
Rachael Ray is so rude and obnoxious. She's loud for no reason, she's says she's done everything anyone else has done, she thinks she knows more than all of her guests and speaks over them to get her point across. She has no manners hence licking her lips constantly, always says she's drooling and today she said spit is part of her pizza! Long story short she's loud and so self absorbed.
Rachel Ray should not be a host of a talk show. She has a rude personality when it comes to the guests. She constantly talks over them and does not let them talk. Yeah we get that you are the host of a talk show, but it does not mean to have your guests feel uncomfortable when you talk over them. I'm surprised that they have not put her in her place when doing that. Another point I would like to make, an important one anyways, is that she is gross when it comes to food. She is now saying that she drools in her mouth from the food either she's making or another guest is making. Not only that but she double dips, plays with her hair and digs for gold in her nose, WITHOUT hand washing. This show does nothing but show people how to be rude when other people are talking and to not be sanitary. NBC or whoever owns the channel, please read these comments about this show and shut her show down.
You are ALL correct. First and foremost... How the Networks allow her to continually INTERRUPT her Guests is the rudest thing I have ever seen in television in my life. It's disgusting. They must pay guests to come on the Show? Her appearance is that of a typical WalMart employee (I mean no offence to the employees) Not someone for national television. The other very odd thing to me is, having a Show where you continually talk about "family" , "children" and "being a "Mother". None of which Rachel is. Doesn't make any sense to me either? She talks like she's an expert. How can she? Her and her husband, who's a Lawyer/in a Rock Band/goes to permisquous places to be with women, are not a family. She has not had a Child. So, she can not speak or provide her opinion about children, yet alone talk about what it's like to be a Mother. But laughs it off and talks about her dog. Like we're idiots and it's the same. Unbelievable. Again, the Networks are blind. The Food, well, the recipes are not hers anymore. They are written for her. Even now, the Show's "Staff" comes out to cook? Everything is done for her. That's obvious. That's not the problem. All shows are that way. It's presentation or lack thereof. No Style. No Value. There no longer is any of that from Ms Ray. Or should we say Ms Scuderi. She is ALWAYS talking about how she is ITALIAN and Sicilian at that. She is no more Italian then you and I are. Her Father is from Louisiana and her Mother is from New York. Her Mother is of "Italian Descent", the records show. Neither she nor Rachael were born in Italy. Now Giada DeLaurentis was born in Italy. She can say she is Italian. She had a concept ten years ago. I'll give her that. Quick Meals from the grocery store. However, the Food World has evolved around her and surpassed her and many housewives can now outdo her, outcook her. Thank You Rachel for what you gave to it's time to pack up and go home now. Suggestions: Get a College Degree. See a Therapist to get some help on how to stop interrupting people. Go be a Mother......... It will Change your Life.
I find it difficult to watch her at times. She constantly talks over her guests; always talks about herself. She doesn't seem to be able to control herself. Poor thing. She does have great food recipes/ ideas but the lack of social skills is hard to watch.
I see most people express the same thoughts as I do, and I don't understand why she is always dressed like a frumpy, frumpy old lady, she needs a stylist! I know she has had throat problems, but must she always stand there with a mug in her hand, I am sure it could just be close by. And yes, quit interrupting all your guests! Why don't the producers speak to her!!!
take her off all TV already. her voice is soooo annoying. The most boaring monotone cook host EVER. She never shuts her boaring monotone gob, and i find her flat and fake to add to the mix she seems to have taken over what WAS my fave cooking channel - Food network. NOw i just see her face n i immediately change to another channel. The woman is painful! !
I havent tuned in for awhile. Giving her the benefit of the doubt tune in. Theres this poor man showing how to get stains off Right Away takes the cloth away from him and talk over him should be a one woman she knows
Every time I've seen Rachael on a show she has done nothing but irritate me. I could not get past her personality no matter how much I wanted to learn about her recipes. She's rude to her guests on her show and on every other show she has to make it about her. Untalented as a show host, talented as a chef.
I just can't watch Rachel Ray show anymore. She is too mouthy. Her constant "Right, right, right" at guests like they can't tell her anything she doesn't already know. It is so rude and annoying. She talks over everyone else. I know its her show and she can do what she wants but if she only knew how annoying she comes across to viewers.
Rachel Ray REALLY needs to work on allowing he guests to speak without interruption. She's being rude, annoying, and disrespectful ........ AND DON'T BLAME IT ON BEING HALF ITALIAN!!!! Geez!!!! This is when I usually get up and leave the room. I want to hear what her guest has to say. Maybe Rachel doesn't realize she's NOT an expert on everything!!!!
I tape and watch the Rachael Ray show. I enjoy the show, but have come to find her constant talking over her guests and finishing their information very annoying. Lately she has also begun to hurry her guest along in fact so much that you don't even feel that you have a chance to understand what they are trying to tell you. The episode in which her sister appeared and showed how to make her bunny cake is an excellent example. Rachael would not let her talk, she constantly interrupted, and took over making the cake. Her sister is not a tv personality, but she, as every one else on the show, should be respected and allowed to impart their information without intervention by Rachael. Please, Rachael, you need to go back to the days when you were not an expert and you showed your guests the respect they deserve - sister - or otherwise. I hold hope that you can improve and I can continue to watch your show without having to delete the show halfway though because of the annoying habits you now exhibit.
I have to have the TV on where I work, so I keep it on RR, no offensive language, but that is the only thing that is not offensive. She never stops talking over her guests. I simply can not watch any longer. I find myself shouting at the TV for her to Shut Up! It is so annoying. I wonder if CBS will ever move her back to the paid formats so that we don't have to listen anymore. Please do something!
13 years ago, Rachael taught me how to cook with 30 Minute Meals. I loved the tips she gave and how she simplified the process. She's awesome when it's just her, talking and cooking. And I think that's her downfall. She couldn't transition to having actual people with her and not doing all the talking herself. Emmitt Smith called her on it, too, right there on the show. And when her audience gets excited about the food, she tells them to calm down, in a very condescending way. I wanted so badly to like the talk show, but she just isn't cut out for that type of forum.
I also gave up on her magazine early on when they published a "Copy Our Look" page with her and John. It featured his $60 t-shirt. For someone who used to teach her audience about stretching a buck, she's really lost touch.
I thought it must be me. I hardly watch Rachael anymore, because of her constant jabbering when her guest is trying to speak! It IS annoying and I'm surprised anyone will come to be a guest. The only person to show irritation, was Flay. He pretty much walked over her, so he could talk!
Whenever someone has a story, she feels the need to jump in with her own 'one-up' tale!
Anyhow, I can see by the comments, that it is not just me. Thanks for posting!
The ability to participate in conversation, where each individual is given the time and courtesy to participate is a learned behavior. You can teach it to yourself with just a smidgeon of self awareness and self control. The person who is unable to achieve this behavior SHOULD NOT be a show host!!! It's painful and aggravating to watch. You appear lacking in self esteem and confidence as if every person is a threat to you. The louder and more vocal you become while your guest is attempting to talk RR with that purposeful scratchy, squeaky laugh has become more than I can take. I actually wanted to watch the episode where your guest was making mac n cheese variations. I felt so frustrated for him and all the guests that are paraded thru your show so that you can talk over them and beat them to death with your insatiable need to be the center of the world, know all, be all... I just can't watch your show anymore. I'm over and out!!!
I have never seen anyone talk over their guests like Rachel. She asks a question, then when the person tries to answer her - Rachel starts talking over them. Her show is full of "I" "Me" and "My". Why doesn't someone do something? I have stopped watching her - that is one of my major pet peeves.
Just like the comment from February 2016, I joined just to be able to comment, also. OMG Rachael Ray, please STFU. I also wonder if RR or her producers read any comments about her program. If so, why don't they do something, like tell her to STFU when guests are speaking. I would watch to see certain guests, however, you never get to hear what they have to say. I wonder why they keep coming back for return visits. Anyway, she is rude to her guests and she is annoying. Once again, she needs to STFU.
