Bourdain Softening on Rachael Ray?

Is Rachael Ray's big birthday causing Anthony Bourdain to soften his tirade against the queen of quick cooking?


In a recent interview, Anthony Bourdain calls Rach a "smart, hardworking businesswoman."

Of course, he also goes on to say, "... as soon as she doesn’t have to cook, she’s not gonna. I mean, she can’t anyway. She’s the first to tell you, more or less. I’m kind of tired of beating up on her because I just don’t know how much longer she’s going to be actually cooking."

Still, I sense that Bourdain is easing up a bit on Rachael. Again, it's hard to stop an $18 million train from traveling on. Although Rachael could surely dabble in other projects, I'm pretty sure cooking will continue to be her base for a long time.

At some point you just run out of
words. She is the same overexposed
person she was a year ago and just
because she's got 18 million doesn't make her more talented just
the same people continue to follow
her. Yawn.

They all set out eventually. He wishes he had her money.

Hell. I'd bang them both.

Well Anthony Bourdain said it all. I understand where he is coming from about Ms Rachael. I think she really realates all the homemakers with her cooking and he doesn't. And yes Ina is probably the best selfmade cook I have EVER seen.

i could care less or is that i couldn't care less?
well, anyway, what he thinks about anything matters not to me.

To Anonymous @ 4:35...I think I would too! LOL That's hot.

I don't care if Bourdain sold out. At least he has something to sell. He's got the background, experience and chops to venture into other areas besides food (travel, writing). Oh yeah, and he's REAL.

On the other hand, Rachel is a Tusch FN fantasy come true because she sells crap regardless of her talent. Now she's one of Oprah's products and that makes me want to puke.

Yes Rach is annoying and Bourdain
is a snob, but at least Rach wasn't
dumb enough to give herself Emphysema

Bourdain can't make that claim, can he?

He is an awesome story teller. I love to listen to him and read anything he writes.

Bourdain is 10 gallons of awesome in a five-gallon hat.

You gotta love that he says she should watch Ina to learn how to cook! Unlike Bourdain, though, I'd definitely hang with Ina, my aspiration is to be one of her many gay friends!

to anonymous @11:45 am ....well RR was sure as hell well dumb enough to evolve into the joker with all that botox shit injected into her!!....i'd give props to Bourdain for keeping it real all the time!

Sure 4:20

Botox won't kill you like Emphysema

He's keeping it real alright. Down
to the last nail in his coffin

Smokers are idiots and I have no respect for them or the losers who
aid and abet them

Their despicable habit costs this country billions. They are true fools

Well 4:20 did it ever occur to you that this misogynist society we live in, pressures women to look a certain way? Although you just may be talking out of your ass about the Botox, but it doesn't really matter

Can you imagine how much Botox Bourdain would need if he had to live up to the same standard? A bucketful,at least.

I got to agree with the other poster. Better a little Botox
than Empphysema. Poor Tony, but he did it to himself and will die
a sad painful death, I have seen it many times, as I work in Hospice.

He really needs to lay off, it just makes him look foolish to keep ranting against her. I think he's just envious of Rachael Ray's level of success or otherwise he wouldn't seem to have this attitude toward her.

At 8/26/2008 9:06 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

this is 4:20 again....here's a little info for the intellectually challenged assholes above

Therefore the act of injecting BOTULISM into one's face is completely and utterly IDIOTIC....!!!
There is no cure for botulism...so my question is...why put something so harmful into your skin...research has shown that this toxin can lead into the brain cavity..so fucktards if you are going to talk shit about the smoker then understand that VANITY also KILLS....really you all must be RR fans cause you seem DUMB and FAKE ...just like her!!!!!!!so fuck off and leave BOurdain alone...it's a free fucking world and no one tells you anything about your choosing to eat those triple whoppers you fat lazy assholes....

Poor...poor Tony

Emphysema is a bad way to die
I had 2 uncles with it

They both died horrible deaths

At 8/27/2008 8:02 AM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

Hey 4;20
You obviously know nothing about medical grade Botox

And by the way do you have proof RR uses it, or are you just talking out
of your stinking blowhole?

At 8/27/2008 9:58 AM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

Tony, say it isn't so! Keep telling everyone what a no talent _____ she is!

Luv the anon cat fight... fwiw RR smokes as well and listen to that voice of hers she's months away from something worse than emphysema.

Tony has given up smoking, btw.

"Tony has given up smoking, btw."

Yes we all know that, but it is too
late. He has a terrible lung disease
because of his poor and callous choices. Sad way to die

this is anon @4:20 again...for the 2nd time ...deep breath !!!
smoking is like compulsive overeating...it is an ADDICTION!!! at first you make a CHOICE to indulge in a cigarette for social reasons but then it becomes an ADDICTION like DRUGS..FOOD>...and ALCOHOL..so fucking lay off of Bourdain for things beyond the sphere of his brain function ...or else i will have to open a can of whoop ass up in this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At 8/27/2008 2:29 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

4:20 is more annoying than a RR fan the way he defends Tony. I love Tony but find no need to defend him. OMG.

At 8/27/2008 3:53 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

Hey 2;20 you seem so angry about anonymous people's comments on the internet. Get some help hon

"addiction" is an excuse for weak minded people

One can quit anything they want. No one said it's easy but millions have done it. Sad that Tony waited too long. But it goes to show you that he could do it

My gramps quit after his diagnosis,
but it was too late, and he died a long, slow painful sad death, as will Tony

People should learn from him, not get angry, but just say no to ciggys.

Is that a bong in her hand?

At 8/30/2008 1:47 PM , Anonymous Anonymous said...

Looks like a pepper grinder

Sorry if that disappoints you, but come on, bong people are mellow

and mellow is not a word used to describe Rach

Who really cares what that A-Hole Anthony thinks of Rachael Ray- He is a classless yellow stained teeth media whore - He can keep his damn comments to himself the PIG !

At 9/04/2008 3:23 PM , Anonymous Jeff said...

He's mellowing, but not much. Even though I thoroughly enjoy his show No Reservations on the Travel Channel, it's like an unpolished version of her Tasty Travels. (Maybe the absinthe he had on episode 1 of NR is still affecting him. Or, maybe he's bent out of shape at the big name chefs who guest on her talk show!)

Believe it or not, I've never been sucked in or overloaded with Rachael Ray. I catch her show here and there and I like it. (30 minute meals). It's fun, realistic and easy. Plus, Rachael has a personality. She moves and talks so much that you find yourself WATCHING a SHOW. Not half-as* paying attention to some monotone droid.

Rachael has never claimed to be anything more than she is. A talented woman with money making ideas. What's wrong with that? Nothing. Men ALWAYS have bad things to say about women worth $18mill. Anthony wears his jealousy and insecurity on his sleeve. Rachael puts in 14 hour+ work days so she deserves everything she gets. It isn't anything bad that people like her so much that FN gave her shows. Anthony can get bent. I never thought I would be a Rachael fan but she really puts her share of elbow grease into what she does and that's rare after certain point. So he can be the lame ass that he is while she laughs all the way to the bank.
