Rachael Ray's War on Couch Talk

Food Network perky hellion and FHM foodsex model Rachael Ray will get her own half-baked talk show in September, and she promises to cut out all the "deep discussions" that ruin current examples of the genre. Also verboten are "finger wagging," "makeovers of 20-year-olds," "experts," and "crying." Ray wishes to distinguish her show as "kitchen table talk" as opposed to "couch talk," which just gets too damned cerebral and heavy. "I'm grossly unqualified for every job I ever had," chirps Ray, happily demonstrating and celebrating the fact that once you've been on TV for one thing, you can be on TV for anything else.
