May have already said this in another post. DH didn't enjoy watching PD one night on her party show. She was being nasty to a man maybe a country singer and he said, this lady is really embarrassing this guy, why won't she stop? Maybe due to her needing ratings I think. I still like her though and wish I'd have loved TL&S when I went, oh well.

I also noticed in her new dog food commercial she seems to have gained some weight and her voice was especially raspy.
I want to stress I didn't start this thread to be a put down of these people as I'd love any of their careers.
To talk about her voice again and still, read this or google her about this subject.
You'll see what's up with that.
And I agree about BF. My opinion is that he's brilliant and a talented Irish gentleman, no doubt. I for one, love RR and wish I was in the right place at the right time as she apparently was.

I was watching Giada yesterday and they made a really big deal of getting camera shots of her washing her hands. Michael Smith (Canadian - Chef at Large, Chef at Home, Chef Abroad), is also one for cleaning hands, and his kitchen on camera. I like that.

I like Mario Batali because he "is who he is". He wears his shorts and orange shoes, makes jokes and just shows such a passion for everything he does, whether it is a heated battle in Kitchen Stadium or out visiting Italian America. I think he will always be one of my favourites. His banter with his sous chefs, the judges and Alton Brown is wonderful!

I like TV chefs that act like they are having fun, and cook things that I have a chance of reproducing. For me, that means Bobby Flay, Cat Cora, and Rachel, in no particular order. The worst? That would be the new Emeril Green, Emeril acts like he would rather be at the dentist. Paula? Why would anyone have all that beautiful antique copper hanging on the wall, and use mediocre pans? unless they are trying to sell you something.

Tyler Florence drives me crazy with his "boom". Too much like Emeril's "BAM" which also drove me up the wall!
I've always wondered why she wears a wedding ring.

Definition of irony? My daughter-in-law is taking a tv production class this semester at the local university in Houston where Rachel Ray's show is coming and has been asked as well as 3 others to be a production assistant on the Rachel Ray show..........she's thrilled at the opportunity..............she doesn't know how to cook squat and isn't the least bit interested.........I'm hoping that she'll be inspired.........no, we are so very proud of her and it will be good experience for her

He and Batali are my favorites, based entirely on their cuisine.
