's talk show career hasn't earned her any points in fellow TV chef Martha Stewart
's book. Stewart recently appeared on ABC's Nightline
, where she dissed Ray's skills in the kitchen and basically wrote her off as more of an "entertainer" than a chef. Rachael wasn't upset by Stewart's comments (Getty)
She said (via PopEater
): "Well, to me, she professed that she could -- cannot bake. She -- just did a new cookbook which is just a re-edit of a lot of her old recipes. She -- and that's not good enough for me. [A cookbook] is a unique and lasting thing. Something that will really fulfill a need in someone's library."
She went on to say that Rachael, on the other hand, is "more of an entertainer ... with her bubbly personality, than she is a teacher, like me. That's not what she's professing to be."
Ouch -- or maybe not. Turns out, Ray was completely un-bothered by Martha's comments and said she agreed with her when pressed for a comment. Rachael asked, "Why would it make me mad? Her skill set is far beyond mine. That's simply the reality of it."
She continued, "That doesn't mean that what I do isn't important too... I don't consider it needling. I really just think she's being honest. She does have a better skill set than I do when it comes to producing a beautiful, perfect, high-quality meal. I'd rather eat Martha's than mine, too."
Wow: After smiling through being slammed by both Stewart and Anthony Bourdain
, Rachael's proven she's a seriously good sport.
