Rachael Ray - love, hate, ignore, pity, envy?

I thought Rachael Ray deserves her own topic, considering how much of the Food Network thread is devoted to her. I myself have a soft spot for her, as I see her as one of those overachieving kids who just tries way too hard to be cool. And, um, we sometimes use her $40 a Day show to figure out where to go when we travel - please do not worry, Anthony Bourdain, we tip well. She's got, what, a million cookbooks, three shows, and a magazine? She's taking over the world, Oprah-style. And she made EVOO a word in the dictionary.
