Rachael Ray Doesn’t Think Dunkin’ Donuts’ Coffee is Yummo
January 17, 2008 | Pop Culture
Oh, boy. I bet this REALLY caused Rachael Ray to gesticulate wildly…
On the set of Rachael’s new commercial for Dunkin’ Donuts, she was given a cup of java (because, you know, she needs to be more wired) – but she wasn’t pleased they expected her to drink the coffee of her, um, well, employer.
A source tells New York Magazine:
So a friend of mine was on set last week as Rachael Ray filmed her latest Dunkin’ Donuts commercial. According to her, Rachael stormed onto the set and snapped at everyone. Not news, I know, everyone knows she’s actually a gigantic asshole. BUT! I am also told she took one sip of her Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, yelled “What is this shit? Get me MY coffee,” and would not continue until she was given “her” coffee — i.e., Starbucks.
Now, I would love nothing more than to rag on Rachael for being a big ol’ Dunkin’ Diva, BUT… I just returned from Rachael’s love, Starbucks, who once AGAIN used soy milk instead of the nonfat that I get in my venti iced NONFAT latte EVERY day. And I did not discover this until I got into my car, so it was too late to rip Tom the Barista a new one once AGAIN. (Candy ripping Tom a new one usually goes something like this: “Um, excuse me? I’m sorry, hi… I think there was a miscommunication, I’m so sorry… did I mention I was sorry? I wanted skim, not soy… I’m so sorry…”)
I think my excessive use of caps demonstrates just how displeased I am. And how I am but a mere television show, magazine, book deal, product line and CandyKirbySux Web site away from becoming a Java Jerk, myself.
Of course, if I was getting paid a gajillion dollars for an endorsement, I’d suck down that nasty Coffee Coolatta like it was George Clooney in a cup.
