  • Haven't watched in ...

    I haven't watched RR in years... Tuned in today and oh lawdy... I immediately went on Google and typed in "what is wrong with RR???" well all of these comments came up of exactly what my concerns were. I honestly think the woman needs to see a psychiatrist. Not even joking... She also has the Oprah Complex as well which is nauseating... She was once America's Sweetheart girl next door cook. Now she is obnoxious, compulsive, self absorbed and down right nasty as a person. I agree with other posters about sticking to what she's good at... The only thing she's good at and that's cooking! Watching the way she spoke over and acted toward her guest today.... Oooooeeeeee if that had been me, I would have been kicked out of the taping because I would have told her off straight up! Producers you need to get this taken care of!!!
  • She's obnoxious

    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. needs to tie her hair back, stop touching her nose and again allow her guests to speak! No one knows everything but Rachael thinks she does. Now she's also a doctor cause she speaks for them also.

  • Yeah, yeah, yeah

    If I never hear her utter those three words again, it will be a gift!

    Rachael has obviously attended the Oprah Winfrey School of Talk Show Hosts. THEY BOTH CONTINUALLY INTERRUPT THEIR GUESTS.

    I had to stop watching her show because her personality is so annoying and because most of her meals are so very unhealthy. Then, she got into furniture designing on top of her cookware stuff. Stop already!

    After months of not watching, I turn it on and see that now her show is a talk show. Quit already. How does she remain on the air? And oh, we all know by now that your husband is in a band.
  • Rachael is boring

    Has anyone noticed how much weight Rachael has gained? She is addicted to food. She wears black everyday to try to hide her weight. Its like watching an alcoholic people how to mix drinks. She never shows how to eat and cook healthy. That is because she never cares. All she does is eat and gets bigger and bigger. And she always over talks her guests. My local station removed Lets Make a a later replaced it with Rachael. I much rather have Wayne Brady.
  • needs a haircut

    Rachael should either pull her hair back off her face (in a pony tail) or get it cut short. She keeps pulling her hair back when she is cooking (can you imagine what's on the food!!!!!!) Also - STOP INTERRUPTING YOUR GUESTS ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE COOKING. Very very rude.

  • Doctors Are In---Blood Drive

    The information the doctors gave was very helpful; however, Rachel... again the expert on EVERYTHING interrupts them while they're explaining. One even gave her a 'please let me finish my statement look'. She gets on my nerves. Are these reviews even reviewed by her staff, if so, someone needs to pull her coat-tail. Everyone is saying the same thing about her. I was even shouting at the TV telling her to STHU....
  • please calm down

    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 needs to stick to cooking

    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.
  • general comments

    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.
  • Stop Drooling!!

    Please tie the hair back looks bad hanging over the food as you talk about drooling, the visual is bad. Real appetite destroyer!
  • Enough!

    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!
  • Rachael ALWAYS interrupts....

    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.
  • Stop TALKING

    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.
  • Rude and Not Sanitary

    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.
  • Why can't she stop talking over her guests!!!!!

    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.
  • Revamp Rachael

    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!!!
  • Rachael Ray Sucks

    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! !
  • annoying

    why does rachael always scratch her head and nose i don't see any hand washing.
  • I can't even sign in to comment!

    I can't even log in or sign in to comment! WTH? Now they want me to enter a score and no way to do it! Holy crap!

    Okay, I may be here, but can't find a place to make a comment.

    I absolutely hated her suggestion of using mayo on a grilled cheese sandwich. I had to throw it out. It was disgusting.

    I'm also glad many here are voicing the same opinions I have of her talking over everyone. It is so annoying. And many other has great things to say about not liking her.

    Wake up and change this format or her! It is SO annoying!

    So without beating a dead horse here already commented about, read these comments and do something about it. I will click over to the food network channel or Hallmark when RR is on. Enough already!
  • Here she goes again

    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

  • Loud and Unnecessary

    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.
  • Why is she always screaming?

    Is there some reason she screams all the time? It is so annoying. I would watch for the recipes but I can't handle that constant screaming!

    Please never say SHUT THE DOOR again!!!!!

    Why does she think it's necessary? Is it just for show?

  • Why hasn't she stopped yet?

    I googled the subject of Rachael talking over her guests and found out that it has been driving people crazy for years. Why hasn't it stopped!? Please make it stop!
  • Glad I am not the only one

    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.
  • She should do QVC

    i love cooking show any cooking show except Rachael Ray show! for real she is so noisy and keep marketing her product! i dont like her I cant help but switch another channel when i see her
  • Would you just please SHUT UP????

    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!!!!
  • A sister to love!

    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.
  • So annoying had to change channel

    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!
  • Disappointed

    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.
