Rachael Ray has built an empire with a lack of polish and professionalism, and an ability to laugh away mistakes. That may be why she hardly missed a beat during COVID-19 quarantine when Rachael Ray had to be filmed in her home (via Rachael Ray magazine). As anyone who’s been forced to work from home can confirm, unscripted snafus are an everyday part of the experience. Everyone has a story, whether it’s cats, kids, or the occasional naked spouse disrupting an otherwise serious and professional Zoom meeting (via ET).
The Rachael Ray show’s Instagram account posted a work-from-home blooper clip on March 22. A camera was trained on whatever dish Ray was preparing when her banter was interrupted by some high-pitched beeps. “Oh, laundry’s done again. Sorry about that,” Ray remarked. Then she paused to reflect on all the interruptions this work-from-home day had brought.”Did you hear before, a tree fell in the front yard? It could have crushed the house, by the way. They were using a buzz saw before, and now the laundry’s done. Welcome home! Just like your house, right?”
You’re right, Rachael Ray. And this little moment of relatability was well received by the Instagram commenters. “I love you Rachael,” one of them said. “You’re so real!”
