TMZ has published a story involving daytime cook, Rachael Ray, and racist remarks she might have made about Oprah. On December 3, 2005 Rachael was doing a book signing at Los Angeles’ Century City mall. This was around the time that Rachael was in talks with Harpo about producing her talk show. After the signing, Rachael and crew went to the Houston’s restaurant in the mall where she drank several glasses of wine. During the dinner, Rachael started talking about a picture of Oprah hanging in the Harpo offices. The picture features Oprah in a white peasant skirt and a scar running down her back. It was taken from Oprah’s movie, Beloved.
Rachael apparently commented on the picture, “Why is she wearing slave drag? She obviously has problems being black.”
She didn’t stop at Oprah either. She loudly called Brad Pitt a “pussy boy” and said Angelina was a “skanky, backdoor cunt!”
Rachael’s PRho denies she made any of those comments. He responded with this lengthy statement, “Rachael did attend the dinner referenced and enjoyed wine and good conversation with friends and colleagues. She denies making any of the comments referenced. In fact, there are several words that are attributed to Rachael that she has never uttered in her life. Neither in public nor in private has Rachael made a disparaging or cruel remark about her friend and mentor, Oprah, nor a celebrity couple she has never even met. There were several associates of Rachael’s at that table who, unprompted, agreed that Rachael never made any of the comments she is being accused of making… and it seems very convenient that these accusations are being levied at a time when Rachael’s success has focused the public eye on her.”
Personally, I have heard horror stories about Rachael’s alleged booze abuse. I have also heard that she’s a real monster to work with and terrorizes everyone on the set. This is all alleged. So, it doesn’t surprise me that her stupid ass would make these comments. I believe it. I don’t think there’s anything with her Brad and Angelina comments, it’s kind of funny. But the comments about Oprah….what a stupid HO! This might be your future employer and you’re making loud ass comments about her race? She needs to get off TV and get a job as the official chef of the KKK!!!
