Here's some marital advice for Rachael Ray: Maybe if you spent less time selling your supposedly gourmet soul to the donut devil, you could avoid celebrity gossip rumors regarding a divorce.

As it stands, however, Ray's time annoying America on billboards and in ads for Dunkin Donuts may be affecting her marriage. Perez Hilton sucks - and reports that Rachael's union with John Cusimano is in trouble.

However, Ray's rep tells Us Magazine: "There is no truth to it and it's a non-item... Rachael and John are happily enjoying the holiday week up at their cabin."

Rachael Ray might be getting a divorce. But she's definitely selling out in her current Dunkin Donuts ad campaign.

So there you have it, folks. While other famous pairs, such as Paul Sculfor and Jennifer Aniston, are calling it quits, these two are simply counting the money Ray made off her campaign for a fast food chain. But at least they're doing it together.

It's another sign that love can, indeed, work out. Also, take note of Nelly Furtado's engagement to Demo Castellon to further get that message.

Look out, Colby Donaldson!

Rachael Ray is assembling an army of herself to take over the kitchen.

Chef at the White House

We're just kidding. This is really a photo of the cooking queen finding a was figure of herself rather hilarious. Nevertheless, we'd be frightened if we were Oprah Winfrey or Brangelina - who knows what Ray has planned with these statues?

Ironically, both Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been immortalized in wax themselves. Maybe they could face off with Rachael's likeness. Of course, Martha Stewart would probably wish to get in a few shots on Ray, as well.

And we've all seen what she can do to a turkey.

Sorry, Jeff Probst.

Colby Donaldson has a new best buddy.

Chef at the White House

The former Survivor contestant will be a regularly featured "content buddy" in the televised kitchen of Rachael Ray, hanging out with the lovely cook and dishing on what men really want.

Here's a hint: it's Britney Spears nude, not Britney Spears bald.

Other topics will also be covered. Last week, for example, it was: "Is chivalry dead?"

The Survivor star will also do interviews and set visits for Entertainment Tonight.

"Audiences first got to know me being myself on TV having a wild adventure," Colby said.

"I'm thrilled to now be with Rachael Ray enjoying this daytime adventure with real people. I love hanging out with Rachael and the food perks are pretty great too! It's good to know my days of eating bugs are over!"

It's true. Now he can eat burgers while Ray walks around topless. Not a bad gig.

Rachael Ray, you never bite the hand that feeds you.

Especially when said hand belongs to Oprah Winfrey.

Chef at the White House

The talk show host allegedly made disparaging racial remarks about Winfrey during a dinner on December 3, 2005.

Ray, along with seven others, went to Houston's Restaurant in an L.A. shopping mall - and that's where the odd, racist bashing supposedly began.

Ray became "extremely loud and aggressive," sources told TMZ, when the issue of an Oprah portrait that sits in the lobby of Harpo Productions in Chicago came up.

It's from the movie Beloved and shows Winfrey's back, enhanced with scars.

She's also wearing a skirt from the slavery era.

Back at the table, sources say Ray launched into attack mode:

"Why is she wearing slave drag? She obviously has problems being black."

And if that weren't weird enough, we also hear that she told the group how much she liked Jennifer Aniston ... before dissing her ex-other half.

Ray called Brad Pitt a "pussy boy."

She referred to Angelina Jolie as "a skanky, backdoor c**t."

Her reps, of course, deny all this happened.

But we just wanna say this if it did, Rachael: Just because you spell your name strangely doesn't give you the right to be racist and mean.

Good news for Jennifer Love Hewitt: There will soon be a new place for you to gorge on cheeseburgers.

And - based on the picture to the right - the chef cooking up your favorite food may not be wearing a shirt. But topless or not, Rachael Ray has announced her next brand extension will involve burgers.

Chef at the White House

Ray told an audience at the American Magazine Conference in Phoenix on Sunday she will open the yet-untitled "burger joint" in New York, based on 190 burger recipes she has cooked up.

"We'll rotate them . Tuna burgers, swordfish burgers, turkey burgers," Ray said. "I like anything you can pick up with your hands - portable food."

Interesting. Nicole Richie would say the same thing, but it would be anything you can regurgitate with your stomach - vomitable food.

Ray also commented on her growing rival, Martha Stewart, saying: "Her brand is about striving for perfection. Ours is ... 'eh.'"

"I've never felt influenced by her," Ray said. "But I wish her nothing but good, warm, wonderful success."

And she almost got it out with a straight face. Still, this feud isn't very exciting. Who can produce the better cupcake? Wake us when it's over. Give us Heather Mills versus the entire British journalism world instead.

We're mostly referring to the competition that kicks off today when Rachael Ray debuts her new talk show.

Chef at the White House

But apparently more than mere ratings are being fought over. According to reports, four staffers from the Martha Stewart show tried to sneak into a taping of Ray's show last week, but a security guard who works for both shows recognized them and had them ejected.

A source, unfortunately, claims there's no real feud in the works, however.

"[The spies] were kicked out because they lied about their names. Otherwise they would have been welcome to stop by."

A Stewart spokesman says the quartet weren't asked to leave by the guard, but by one of Martha's former audience coordinators who now works for Ray. It all sounds a bit off. Does Stewart really need another riva, on top of Donald Trump?

And all her former cellmates that are still rotting away in prison.

What will Oprah Winfrey talk about when she helps to kick off the new Rachael Ray talk show next month? You'll have to tune in to find out - but expect a few references to how straight Gayle King's best friend is.

On August 3, Oprah made a surprise stop at the New York City set of Ray's show, where she hung out for the entire taping, met the audience, got a full tour of the set and shared some on-air coffee talk with Ray.

From there, Winfrey - who rarely appears on other people's shows - headed to the airport for a flight to South Africa, where she is working on her Leadership Academy for Girls, due to open in January.

Ray's hour-long syndicated program, The Rachael Ray Show, premieres September 18. The episode with Winfrey will air during its first week.

Don't expect an influx of celebrities on the program, however. Sorry, Kevin Federline, you'll have to go elsewhere to beg for attention. Ray, 36, says she expects guests, including her husband, lawyer and musician John Cusimano, to relax and get their hands dirty by cooking with her or playing foosball.

So, Rachael, what advice did Oprah offer?

"She tells me to be myself. She doesn't chime in or call up and say, 'This is how you can be more like Oprah.' She's pretty busy with her own job," Ray said.
