Although, I have to admit, every time these Rachael Ray divorce rumors come out, I always wonder if maybe this time its true. Maybe I think that because I give these tabloids too much credit because I just don't understand how they can keep publishing the same story over and over again.
MSNBC summarized the allegations of the newest story, with the headline "Rachael Ray’s marriage ‘broken beyond repair.’" It relied on "a source close to the couple" and here's the 411:
A source close to the couple explained how obvious they’re problems appeared during a visit with family last Christmas. “It was supposed to be a happy holiday time, but Rachael and John made the mood tense,” the insider told the Enquirer. “When they arrived, John stayed outside for 15 minutes. When he finally came into the house, Rachael acted like he wasn’t even there. She even closed her eyes so she wouldn’t have to meet his gaze!”
Later that same evening, Rachael allegedly gave John the bedroom boot. “He was sent off to sleep in a little upstairs loft that’s normally where one of Rachael’s mother’s cats sleeps.”
Rachael’s publicist told the Enquirer the story was untrue, but the magazine’s source insisted the relationship is “broken beyond repair” and will likely be over “before the year ends.”
Given Rachael's recent railing against tabloids, I'm thinking this is yet another story that is just about selling papers. After a year of reporting the same thing and being wrong, maybe now they'll move on to a new victim.
