Boozing Away The Beyhive: Rachael Ray Sends Rachel Roy A Bottle Of Wine And A Straw
By Cooking Panda
We previously reported about how Rachael Ray became the mistaken target of the Beyhive’s anger after the famous chef was confused for the alleged real-life inspiration behind Beyonce’s “Becky with the good hair,” Rachel Roy.
After having her Instagram besieged with insults meant for Roy, the 47-year-old Food Network star sent Roy a gift to help her booze away the Beyhive: a bottle of wine and a straw.
“Rachel sent me flowers and I sent her a bottle, a big bottle of wine and a straw,” Ray told Us Weekly at the HealthCorps 10th Annual Garden Gala in New York City on May 10.
“[I was going to send Roy] Brunello di Montalcino, where I was married, but I said for our office to ask her office if she drinks red and if she didn’t drink red, to send Grande Dame,” Ray continued. “So I don’t know actually which one she got. I wrote the card and she got the straw and the booze.”
According to US Weekly, it turns out this isn’t actually the first time the two Rach(a)els have crossed paths due to their similar monikers. Ray told Us that she once accidentally picked up Roy’s dry-cleaning.
“[It was] hilarious. I thought it was the coolest thing ever! I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? I’m even mentioned in the same sentence as these people? That’s insane. That’s awesome,’” she explained to Us, laughing. “I think honestly that it was really much more uncomfortable for the rest of the people in that group than for me. I was like, ‘I’m mixed in with all of those peeps?! What the hell?!’”
“I mean, it’s so far removed from my life,” Ray added. “I’m a cook. I have a little talk show. We chit-chat.”beyhive, beyonce, lemonade, rachael ray, rachel roy
