That's why it pains me to say that I can't stand Rachel Ray. Let me tell you why:
- Everyone has had an annoying song running through their heads over the course of a day. Sometimes it's something by Britney Spears. Sometimes it's something by 80's supergroup The Power Station (c'mon, you've heard "Some Like it Hot"). On especially bad days, it's "Apache" by the Sugarhill Gang (and that's going to be in your head all day now). Well, that's how I feel about Rachel Ray's voice; at least once in the course of my day, I will inexplicably think "I'm Rachel Ray, and I make 30 minute meals!" Someone kill me.
- I'm a lawyer. I'm single (hey, ladies...). I have no children. I live in Davenport, Iowa. And even I can't afford to spend $40 a day on food. Though if wishing made it so.
- The sound of her voice makes me want to cut off my ears with a chef's knife.
- Now she's going for Oprah-esque market saturation. That means I have to watch a commercial with her (and the corresponding annoying voice) at least twice a night on network television. "We're going to have some R & R!" There is neither rest nor relaxation involved.
Now, as for the rest of the Food Network personalities...
