*Rachael Ray found herself in the middle of a ferocious, yet unwarranted Beyhive swarm last month — and lived to tell the story.
The celebrity chef was mistaken for model Rachel Roy by Beyonce’s rabid fans, who were attempting to attack Roy’s social media pages after believing she was the “Becky with the good hair” from Bey’s song “Sorry.” They attacked Ray’s social media accounts instead – and the morning TV fixture found it “hilarious.”
“I thought it was the coolest thing ever!” she told Us Weekly. “I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? I’m even mentioned in the same sentence as these people? That’s insane. That’s awesome.’”
“I think honestly that it was really much more uncomfortable for the rest of the people in that group than for me. I was like, ‘I’m mixed in with all of those peeps?! What the hell?!’” she added. “I mean, it’s so far removed from my life. I’m a cook. I have a little talk show. We chit-chat.”
Ray also revealed Roy sent her a gift after the mixup.
“Rachel [Roy] sent me flowers and I sent her a bottle, a big bottle of wine and a straw,” Ray said.
