After an alleged ghostwriter came forward claiming she was the one behind 9 celebrity cookbooks, celebrities like Rachael Ray and Gwyneth Paltrow were thrown into the fire. Chef Bobby Flay visited the Today Show last week and came to Ray's defense.
"I know for a fact that Rachael Ray writes her own recipes. I've seen her do it in between her shows, in the segments in a corner, writing her recipes away," Flay said. "Also on the other side of it, I don't think Julia Moskin [the alleged Ghostwriter]... started the article in the gotcha form. She wasn't looking to unveil chefs' cookbooks. I think she was trying to write a story about her prior career... and lots of names got thrown in there and people got their feelings hurt."
