Media Moguls and TV Chefs Rachael Ray vs. Martha Stewart

Rachael Ray or Martha Stewart: Who'd You Rather Watch?

In an interview with The Hungry Beast, Rachael Ray explains the difference between her and Martha Stewart: "She likes to set a very beautiful and very exquisite and very high standard and that's really important. And for me, I want people to know they can achieve it. So I literally set the bar lower as part of our brand. I think that both work and both are very necessary." The two have had an awkward relationship that included a 2009 blow from Martha about Rachael's cookbooks not being "good enough." Regardless, Rachael's managed to keep things diplomatic.

I love Martha but Rachael has something about her, I just have to watch it on mute with close caption on her voice is terribly annoying.

I don't like watching cooking shows, I'd rather just read a recipe. Martha's recipes can be over the top but at least they taste good. I really like Martha Stuart Living, its a beautiful magazine. @KrisB, I agree successful women should support each other, not try to bring the other down.

It's hard to choose.. I really don't like either very much. Rachel's voice annoys me SO much, so I guess I voted Martha. She seems kind-of snobby, and a prude, though... There should be a neither option!

Where is the option for NEITHER?

Why does it have to be a choice? I enjoy both as they bring different things to the table. I wish women, especially successful women would be more supportive of each other. Glad Rachel chooses to rise above any cattiness.

Rachel Ray is annoying... I can only take her in small doses, like 30 minutes show with commercials... tops.

The funny thing is I watch 30 Minutes Meals, but use Martha's recipes more. And Martha Stewart Living is one of my favorite magazines.
