  • interrupts......

    2.5
    First let me start by saying, I liked her cooking shows, and like Rachael when she is in her element (the kitchen). However, when you put her on a show where she interviews celebrities' or does ANYTHING besides cooking it is the WORST. It is awkward, rude, annoying and certainly not cute to constantly interrupt the guests and talk about yourself, again and again and againnnn.

    I signed up just to type this comment, I had to get this off my chest.

    Update: (one year later) Rachel Ray has gotten worse! I just watched a cooking segment with Ayesha Curry as the guest and Rachel didn't let her get a word in! She cuts the guest off every time she tries to say an ingredient or method... Rachel will say 'I do it this way' or 'my family And not let guest speak!!! Rachel asks a question to the guest BUT doesn't let them answer!!! She will just go on a rant about herself.... EVERY TIME!

    I am going to stop watching Rachel Ray since her show is less about cooking and more about interviews and crafts, etc. She is very rude when she talks over her guess and makes comments like "congratuations for being so smart and pretty" on todays show. What does being pretty have anything to do with anything. She mentioned the guest cook today was pretty too. Comments should not be about how you look. She needs to update her look because with her wieght gain. She should put her hair up when she cooks. She should learn how to toast bread. In my oppion is because she is not making heathly meals and is clearly drinking too much with her husband. She should warp up this year's show and concentrate on her other projects, like her furniture designing, dog food line, kitchen ware and charities. For her own health she should go back to cooking only 30 minutes but this time healty meals. That's my two cents! I am done with watching her on her current format.

    I have stopped watching Rachel she is the rudest host I have ever watched! ALWAYS interrupting her guests! Just sickening! Her cooking has become boring, she cooks with too much cheese and to many hamburgers, a hamburger is a hamburger, it is what you put on a hamburger that makes it different! She keeps saying she is half Italian, well Rachel you cook to much pasta! I am a full blooded Italian and the Italian cuisine is full of different variety of foods and dishes that can be showcased, Italian cuisine is one of the best! She has let her obnoxious ego disappoint her viewing audience, no more for me!

  • Losing interest in Rachel!!

    I have noticed when I do watch her show she is always Yelling back to the kitchen staff to bring out her ingredience or has a gal toast her bread for her and bring it out! getting upset with her staff when she need help with something and they don't do it according to her likingI guess she is showing her Diva Side if that is what you want to call think it's time she wraps up this show and call it a day!
  • Do something with that hair!

    4.0
    Anyone that cooks knows that you tie your hair back when cooking. You don't touch your hair while adding ingredients to a meal. It's disgusting! Also please do something about her clothes. She looks frumpy.

  • Please shut up the know it all

    Can someone please shut her up... she is so rude and constantly interrupts. Rachael has the need to be the center of attention all the time. You really don't need to explain what chili powder is.... we are not that stupid.

    STOP already. You keep sniffing your nose. Do you have a runny nose, a cold or allergies? If so, don't hang your stringy hair over the food and sniff. It is disgusting.
  • Enough!

    2.0
    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!

    9/19/17- today's get up had to be the worst of the worst! Navy/print velvet jacket, print top, short jeans & black & white boots. Whose idea was that/did you look in the mirror before taping?

    Rachel Rays speech ( she's just too loud and classless) drives me bonkers. In addition her clothing and hair are just awful.

    I don't know how the show stays on the air except for the fact there are no other options in that time slot.
  • Your rude and obnoxious

Sincerely unnerved show watcher. Not for long. Looks like alot of other people have the same problem with you.... Zip it up. more.....
  • The 'Emperor' Wears No Clothes!

    5.0
    Okay, she wears clothes, but they are dour ones! I'm not a clothes policeman or anything, but whenever I watch the Rachael Ray tv cooking show, she always seems to be wearing black or close to black outfits. I realize Rachael is a chef, not a fashion queen, but it would certainly be a welcome change to see her wear brighter and more appealing clothes for television, at least once in awhile! Of course, she is a multi-millionaire, so probably could care less what we mere minions think, but still...
  • Talks to much

    2.0
    I wish Rachael would just for once stop stealing her guests thunder. She never seems to let them talk about their segment. No one knows everything. I agree with others she needs to move on with her life doing anything but TV.
  • Annoying

    2.0
    Raechel:: Go back to 30 minute meals where there are NO guests and no studio audience. You are RUDE, self absorbed, CRAVE the limelight from from your guests, interrupt them consistently. You have become VERY ANNOYING. to cut you loose!!
  • Seriously its annoying

    I usually dont like to post negative posts .dont get me wrong I love to watch the show but I find myself changing the channel at times cause of this , Rachel you seem to always interrupt your guest or anyone else on the show when they are talking or being talk to by others seriously you need to stop its get disappointing and annoying at time .Im sure I may be not the only even know if this comment will reach you...

    Apparently Im not the only one that feels this way according to comments on this page and her FB fan page...
  • her control issues

    2.0
    I feel bad for the guests. Show is not entertaining ,it causes me stress .when guests are cooking she talks over them and they can't their recipe across. why have guests ? Not a humble person, She seems so fake and seems to have a huge ego . Bragging on herself and "her family"

  • The Hair and Clothes!!

    5.0
    I keep tuning in hoping one day she will surprise everyone and do something with that mop. It's so ugly and unprofessional. She can't possibly have a stylist or makeup artist on her show because if she does, they need to be fired. It's like she wakes up and pulls whatever out of her closet and out the door she goes. Tacky shoes, tacky clothes, unkempt hair. I agree about pulling the hair back or cutting it so that when she is cooking, it's not all over the place. She should try toning it down a little and be more aware of how she interrupts her guests.

    I watch Rachael Ray only when there is a great guest on. I always switch channels when their segment is over. Her constant chattering and butting in drives me nuts! Today the Great Chef Pepin was on and guess totally managed to smother his presentation with her garbage! Well thats definately the last time I watch her no matter who is on.

    I've been watching Rachael ray show for a few months now and I think today is the last day I will be watching her. She interrupts Everyone. She's a know it all. Every show she mentions her mommy. She's loud,obnoxious. No matter who is speaking she will interrupt. And she has what everyone else has. She's always looking to give herself a pat on the back. She always says "me too!" Ugh. So sick of her. And STOP with the high fives! Please producers-can you tell her that her reviews are horrible. Maybe she'll change her attitude. It's "all about her". She needs attention badly. Bye bye Rachael ray show. I get knots in my stomach watching her
  • Calm down Rachael Ray...

    Apparently I'm not the only one with the same thoughts, from reading previous reviews. You have a heart of gold, but I'm beginning to see your guests cringe when you interrupt, it's your show, but let them do their thing AND stop using your hands to push your hair back while you are cooking..... today because John was on the show, you kept slinging your hair over the your recipes are amazing, your tips are extremely helpful, but I now DVR your shows because of your constant interruptions of your guests and yelling at your staff to bring you stuff!! Your bestie who had the heart attack and almost died came on to talk about his near death experience and you even kept interrupting do you know what it's like to have a heart attack?? My point!! He needed cathartic therapy to talk about his experience but because it's your show, you took over THAT conversation too!! Go back to being charming!!

  • 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

    2.0
    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.

    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

    3.0
    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

    1.5
    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

    4.0
    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

    7.5
    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

    2.0
    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.
