Rachael Ray Responds to Divorce Rumors

In an effort to put the rumor that she and her husband are divorcing, Rachael Ray recently talked to Entertainment Tonight, which also posted a video of the interview.

Rachael calls the rumors "ridiculous" and says that she learned about them when a friend sent her a text message. "We were planning our anniversary when we got that text message," she said. "We are extremely happy -- couldn't be happier."

Rachael said: "I don't know where something that outlandish comes from." But she certainly has a great attitude about the whole thing: "[It's] not hurtful at all," she says. "It's hysterical!" She says that getting worried about rumors like this "is not what people pay me to do."

Jacob was certainly right with his intuition - Rachael said that when she heard the story that her mom was shopping for an apartment with her, she joked with John that she really liked the apartment and wasn't leaving.

I think the cutest comment she made was "If he doesn't mind eating dinner at 10:00 at night, why would I trade him in for anybody else?" And the most touching was definitely her statement that being with John "is like breathing."

So can we call it dead now? Or is this going to be some sort of zombie rumor?

In other news from the interview, Rachael is wearing a white bathrobe because she is shooting the cover of her new cookbook, Just in Time. I'm looking forward to it!

  1. while i like to admit i was right, celebrities are known for covering up situations (rightfully) if they are highly personal or potentially destructive. that's not to say i think they are getting a divorce-- just acknowledging that it's possible they're covering something up/trying to work things out/etc. i guess i'm just trying to say "i was right" if they do end up getting a divorce, too! :-) jk.

  3. Divorce or not, the only reason I would care is that my son (age 11) and I love Rachael Ray! Rachael is beautiful, funny, talented, and we love her many shows. She has a way of showing things and teaching in a best friend kind of way. I wish she was my neighbor because I would love to be her friend!

  5. If you believe the tabloids, Dolly Parton and husband Carl Dean have been in divorce court ever since she hit it big. That just is not so. They have been married since 1966 and will very likely stay married.
    My point is that if Rachael Ray says she's not getting divorced, she's not necessarily lying. That may very well be true.

  8. I have always assumed she didn't want to get food stuck in her rings. That's why I take mine off when I cook!

  10. I have noticed that she is not wearing her engagement or wedding band. Instead, she has what looks like a ruby band on. What gives?

  11. Anony - there really could be a million different reasons - a present from John, doesn't want to wear her expensive diamond and get ground chicken in it, felt like wearing a ruby...

    These rumors have been going around for so long and have never ended up being true.

  12. It's not a ruby band, it's a black diamond ring that her husband bought her to wear since she's always wanted one and so she could wear it while he got her other rings cleaned (all the food in them, etc). She mentioned this on her daytime show one day.

  17. I have been married 3 times and have never worn a wedding ring or band except for Sundays and special occassions. Give Rachel a break and let her have her privacy as any one of us would want.

  18. I think her hubby cheated on her and she doesn't want to wear her wedding rings because he broke their vows. Why else wouldn't she want to wear her beautiful rings. Cleaning them is easy. She doesn't want to tell everyone, so she just wears a band to show she is still married to him. Can't blame her for not wanting to tell everyone.

  19. I watch her shows faithfully but I've been Married for Sixteen Years and the only time I take them off is to clean them at night in Efferdent and then I but themback on in the Morning I would never think of not wearing them.
