Rachel Ray Needs a New Programming Director

16 03 2009


Now, there’s nothing wrong with what Rachel Ray talked about on her show today in and of itself. Rachel had an author on who was discussing her new book on, of all things, women’s first periods. Intended to get the conversation “flowing” among young girls about their “special visitor.” It sounds about as interesting as a book on that subject can be…humorous yet informative. No doubt many a 13 year old girl will be glad to have read it.

But…it just crosses the lines of good taste to feature such a segment on the same exact show in which Rachel is making some sort of tomato-sauce stuffed hot pocket looking panini things.

Shouldn’t someone have thought this out better?

Okay. That’s just wrong.

Yes and yes. What market were they hawking to? Most 13 year olds should be in school.

I was about to barf when I saw the show…how will i ever get to eat marinara sauce? Glad you researched it and blogged about it. NASTY!!! Love the pic by the way, but it does put yet another picture in my head. Glad I do not like “poo-nani” and now I don’t think I will be eating any paninis!

I wish I had never met my “special visitor” – she can be a real BITCH!

Ewwww. I think these talk shows cross the line of good taste far too often these days. I think talking about bodily functions is just wrong. Kinda like Oprah and her new favorite doctor talking about poop. Really. Who feels they really need to talk about this – pardon the pun – crap?

I dont pretend to understand whether a first period is something that anyone would care to hear about or want to share….but it doesnt seem like it to me.

That sandwich and a guest talking about first period should not have been scheduled on the same show! What she should have made was ANYTHING made of chocolate?! Duh!

I’m glad, and surprised, to read everyone’s comments. Frequently when out to dinner with friends their conversations will turn to “bodily function” issues. Remember, I’m an old broad so the subjects cover a much wider scope than this show did. When I cringe and complain they are ruining my meal, they act like I’m nuts. Like I should be able to clean up a 3 year old’s vomit with one hand while holding a Big Mac and eating out of the other. Not me. This show would have put me off tomato sauces for hours. : ) (Well, I likes my food so I do recover quickly.)

Groan ….

Vinyl, be happy you are a dude. I had the anal sex is still sex conversation with my stepdaughter earlier this year. THAT was a conversation that had us both laughing by the end. Trust me, girls periods are nothing compared to that topic.

Alan…we’re so lucky we dont have to deal with Aunt Flo!

Red–always glad to make my readers cringe

Girl–no joke, I worked with a girl back in college who had anal sex because she swore it meant she was still a virgin in Gods eyes.
