Someone Forgot the Customer’s Always Right

rachaelray.jpgA few bookblogs have picked up on the story of “Donny B.,” who was fired from a cookware store in Chicago after blogging about an in-store appearance by Rachael Ray (left). “You’d think it was Nicole Kidman getting ushered last-minute into the Oscars,” he says of her arrival at the store. “She had her people, the store had their people, and there was a camera crew filming her every step.” But he isn’t really all that critical of Ray (who he thinks has a “cute bubble butt”); instead, he saves his scorn for all the hoopla surrounding her, particularly among the fans clamoring for her attention: “Come on people, I know you’re excited but it’s a woman who created mini-cheeseburger salad, not the freakin’ pope.”
