Cooking Show Host In Host Water?

TMZ reports exclusively that Rachael Ray made some disparaging comments about future boss, Oprah Winfrey, over dinner at Houston’s Century City Shopping Mall on December 3, 2005. TMZ has the details about the dinner:

We’re told Ray became “extremely loud and aggressive,” and began dissing Oprah. Sources say she told the group about a portrait of Oprah that sits in the lobby of Harpo Productions in Chicago. It’s from the movie “Beloved” and shows Winfrey’s back, enhanced with scars. She’s also wearing a skirt from the slavery era.

Back at the table, sources say Ray launched into attack mode: “Why is she wearing slave drag? She obviously has problems being black.”

Brangelina was also a topic of conversation, according to the article.

Sources say she told the group how much she liked Jennifer Aniston and then called Brad Pitt a “pussy boy.” But her harshest comments were reserved for Angelina Jolie, calling her “a skanky, backdoor c**t.”

In reaction, Rachael’s camp is denying the comments were ever made.

TMZ contacted the Director of Publicity for Rachael Ray, Charlie Dougiello, who said, “Rachael did attend the dinner referenced and enjoyed wine and good conversation with friends and colleagues. She denies making any of the comments referenced. In fact, there are several words that are attributed to Rachael that she has never uttered in her life.”

But who knows? I mean, I could be considered a “source.” And I lie like ALL the time. Just because.
