There are few people on television that I loathe more than Rachael Ray. And no, I don’t hate her for her perky demeanor or because she is now fat (see above photo). It’s because she has no discretion. Her shows, especially the travel one, are big product placements, and personally I would rather see the cast members of Survivor rave about the quality of Doritos before seeing Ms. Ray talk about the “best fish tacos on the entire planet,” because at least they’re hungry. Ms. Ray is obviously not hurting for food, and also doesn’t realize that there is no such thing as the “best fish taco.” Now Time magazine has included her in the Time 100 list, which, in case you aren’t familiar, consists of “The People Who Shape Our World.” (via Apartment Therapy)
As for my world, Rachael Ray only succeeds in shaping it for the worse whenever I happen to flip by one of her crappy shows, and then I found out she did a photoshoot for FHM back in her slimmer days. The pictures made me first laugh, then cry, and finally want to crawl into bed and go to sleep forever. See all the FHM photos after the jump.
