With all due respect to Tyra Banks, Rachael Ray may be the most self-serving celebrity in Hollywood.
The Food Network star never passes on an opportunity to earn a paycheck off her (stupidly-spelled) name, even if it means shilling for a company that produces the most unhealthy type of sustenance known to mankind: donuts.
In an interview with ABC Nightline, Ray touches on a number of topics, including the aforementioned Dunkin Donuts deal and her racy photo shoot with FHM in 2003…
On posing seductively for FHM: “I thought, ‘If I’m gutsy enough to do this, this is a good thing for everybody. This is the everywoman, here she is. And I did it, and it was the most scared I’ve ever been, and I wouldn’t change a thing. I’d do it again tomorrow.”
Translation: Please, please. I really don’t mind being a martyr for every female around the world. I’d do it again tomorrow, for more attention and money.

On Dunkin Donuts campaign: “They gave their support and their money to [Ray’s children’s charity] Yum-o. They’ve been very supportive of me. I don’t regret a thing. Not for a minute.”
Translation: I’ll make a buck off any company that shows support for… me!
On her reported earnings of $18 million/year: “It makes me a little sick… It makes my stomach flip. I’m not comfortable with it… People that make that kind of money – it’s just too foreign of an idea.”
Translation: I feel nauseous about it, really. What? Why don’t I just donate a large chunk of it to charity in that case? Sorry, our connection is breaking up…
