Martha Can't Drop It

Ya know, I really thought all the Rachael Ray and Martha Stewart drama was going to be over now that they went on each other's shows. It appears that is not the case, according to this Us Magazine story. Martha went on Nightline and talked some smack. I am proud of Rachael for taking the high road on this one.

As for the criticism of the Book of Ten, I sort of looked at it as a greatest hits album or a new way to look at her recipes. Plus, there were new recipes included, too. (Admittedly, I might not think it's a big deal because I am such a fan of Rach's recipes so am excited to see any permutation of them.)

When we watched Martha and Rachael together, my husband asked if Martha Stewart is always so rude. I don't watch her enough to know - what do you guys think? I think I'm with Rach on this one - she is just brutally honest. Now, I don't think that's an excuse for being rude, but it is at least an explanation.


  1. see related article in the dictionary under "backstabbing" :)

  2. I think Martha was rude to Rachael because she felt threatened. RR is just as big, if not bigger in the younger market, than MS. I'm 40 and know of both, but know that the 20-somethings look to RR while my age group and up look to MS.

    With that, I like RR better because it's okay if things aren't perfect... with MS, perfection is the only way. JMO

  3. Maybe it's an urban myth, but I swear there are studies showing that people's blood pressure goes up when they watch Martha. I never would have started cooking if she was the only one I watched - too intimidating.

  4. I haven't seen either Martha on Rachael or Rachael on Martha but yes Martha is always that rude. That is her manner I believe.

    I love that Rachael has put out this book, fans of Rachael that cannot afford books can get this 'best of' book. Now just to wait for it to come out in Australia....
