So Martha Stewart and Rachael Ray visited each other’s shows to dispel the rumors of a feud between them…and ended up confirming every suspicion:

It goes on like that for the entire segment—Stewart making passive-aggressive little digs. Then there are these comments Stewart made during an ABC interview and Ray’s response:

“To me she professed that she cannot bake,” Stewart says of Ray. “She just did a new cookbook which is just a re-edit of a lot of her old recipes, and that’s not good enough for me. I really want to write a book that is a unique and lasting thing—something that will fulfill a need in someone’s library. So she’s different, she’s more of an entertainer than she is—with a bubbly personality—than she is a teacher like me. That’s not what she’s professing to be.”

When asked about Stewart’s comments, Ray says “It’s true. It’s 100 percent true,” but adds the criticism doesn’t upset her.

“Why would it make me mad?” Ray says. “When it comes to producing a beautiful, perfect, high quality meal, I’d rather eat Martha’s than mine too.”

Yeowch! Tender Vittles Tartar for table two!

Love a couple of old-fashion, apron-wearing, media moguls fighting over recipes.  Empires may pass, but the need to put a high calorie meal on the table will never fade away.  FYI, I don’t think anyone would turn down one of Martha’s meals, as long they don’t have to sit with her.  I’ll take her dinner and ask Rachel to hang around to chat.

“I’m a teacher!”  I just had drinks with two top chefs who have had to appear with Martha on her show. They were absolutely hysterical about how clueless she was and how they had to shove her from place to place on the set and make the event happen.  If they didn’t take the initiative, they said, she would simply stand in one place and look blank.

Media creations arguing about who is the bigger media creation. Nice.

I have watched Martha Stewart for many, many years and not thought much about it but, apparently, she could learn quite a bit about being gracious from Rachael Ray.

I’ll take her dinner and ask Rachel to hang around to chat.

Hear Hear!

Look out Rachel! Martha learned mad shiv-making skillz in the joint!
