Rachael Ray takes on Martha Stewart with new 'Rachael Ray Show'
UPI News Service, 09/18/2006
Domestic dynamo Rachael Ray's new show debuted Monday and a dust-up with icon Martha Stewart already has occurred.
Four staff members from Martha Stewart's show tried to sneak into a taping "The Rachael Ray Show" show last week, but a security guard who works for both shows recognized them and had them ejected, tmz.com said Monday. Ray's show, taped in New York, began its nationally syndicated run, competing against Stewart's daytime show.
The four were asked to leave because they "lied about their names," tmz.com said. A Stewart spokesman says they were asked to leave by one of Stewart's former audience coordinators now working for Ray and not by a guard.
