EW's 10 Stupid Questions with Rachael Ray

EW magazine has a feature called Stupid Questions where they ask celebrities, well, stupid questions. Rachael Ray revealed some of her personality in her answers to the questions and I think she sorta surprised the interviewer. Here are some highlights:

What is your mood today? Perky? Peppy? Vibrant? Vivacious? Upbeat? Bubbly? Cheerful? Sunny?
None of the above?

Really? Do I have a scoop here?
Yeah. I am over tired. And thirsty. And puffy-eyed. I haven't had enough caffeine today to bring me back around to the perky.

What's your craziest backstage-party anecdote from Food Network? We're talking Emeril snorting lines of cumin, the Naked Chef doing watermelon body shots with you and Al Roker...
Sadly, I am all of the most embarrassing Food Network moments in one person. My first birthday at Food Network, I was taping, and they brought me out this big cake and I leaned in and I totally Michael Jackson'd myself. I set both sides of my hair on fire. At the same time. With my own birthday candles. I am a train wreck.

Do you ever worry that there can be only so much happiness in the universe, and that every time you smile, a unicorn gets punched in the face?
I would smile all day long, every day, if it guaranteed a unicorn getting punched in the face. I find them really annoying.

You're tight with Oprah, who's co-producing your new show. When you two run out of that girl-talk stuff, do you start making fun of all of us without media empires?
Oprah and I have a thing where she makes me lemon-drop martinis, and I'm always making her a new-and-improved champagne cocktail. So all we fight about is who's already got their shoes off and who's going to get up to get the next serving of whatever.

I tried the recipe for your famous You-Won't-Be-Single-For-Long Vodka Cream Pasta, but not only am I still single, I've gained three pounds and have a hangover. What's wrong with me?
You're supposed to make it for somebody of the opposite or the same sex, depending on how you swim. You don't sit at home, eat it, and let people pick up on the scent of it out in the street. You've got to rope one in, at least as far as the perimeter of your kitchen table. I can't do everything.


  1. I know! She gets major points for that one.

  2. I have actually made that vodka pasta dish (with my own variations) two times. It's awesome!

  3. I like to make that vodka pasta dish for a crowd. It's easy to make and there's always enough to go around.

  4. Oh Lord. Can't stop laughing at that last answer. And punching unicorns.
