Martha Stewart Addresses Comments on Rachael Ray

Martha Stewart lodged her foot firmly in her mouth after she made some not-so-nice comments about fellow foodie (and less refined) Rachael Ray.

“[Rachael] just did a new cookbook, which is just a reedit of a lot of her older recipes. And that’s not good enough for me,” said Stewart on ‘Nightline‘. “Rachael is different. She’s more of an entertainer…with her bubbly personality, than she is teacher, like me. That’s not what she’s professing to be.”

Martha, usually known as the model of good etiquette, cleared the air on air and had much nicer things to say about Ray this time.

“I just want to take this opportunity just to address some comments that are circulating on the Internet regarding me and Rachael Ray,” Stewart said Monday on her show. “And just for the record, there are no bad feelings between us, nor have there ever been.”

“I truly believe that Rachael has done a terrific job bringing people, many people who would have never even stepped into the kitchen or made a dish to cook,” she added. “I applaud Rachael for her enthusiastic approach to cooking…I really had a great time being a guest on her show, and it was a lot of fun to have her on this show making pie with me too. Come on back, Rachael, anytime you want, and I hope you have a yum-o Thanksgiving.”
