People says that Rachael Ray had a home emergency when a fire broke out at her home in upstate New York. Thankfully Rachael and her family are safe and doing fine, but sadly her chicken adobo was unsalvageable, and all of her EVOO. More like EV-OHNO!
Rachael Ray, her husband John Cusimano, and their dog were all quarantining at their house on Chuckwagon Trail in Lake Luzerne. Rachael shot her talk show there during the pandemic. This is what her kitchen looked like:
But her kitchen probably doesn’t look like this anymore, because there was a serious fire last night. The Warren County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that firefighters did rush out to Rachael’s house to put the fire out. Rachael, John, and their dog are okay, but their house is not. Her rep gave this statement:
“Rachael, her husband John and their dog Bella are safe. The house is unfortunately damaged and we don’t yet know to what extent.”
And here are pics of the fire:

Rachael got on Twitter to let everyone know that she’s fine and mentioned her mother being at the house as well. She also thanked the firemen for saving what they could from her home, but said her phone didn’t make it:
…I *did* lose my phone (posting through a team member) Thank you for all the well wishes, concern and outreach, but can’t return texts and calls at the moment…!

Just hours before the drama, Rachael was posting about how she had gone out with friends for the first time in months.

Of course, the first day you leave the house during a pandemic the damn thing burns down! The universe certainly has a sick sense of humor… …Unless there’s something more nefarious at work here? I mean, is the Beyhive still salty about Jay-Z possibly cheating with Rachel Roy and still doesn’t understand that Rachel Roy and Rachael Ray are two different people? This mistaken identity needs to stop! Hasn’t Rachael Ray suffered enough?!
