There are certainly food network stars whom I confuse with each other, but... it would never have occurred to me to confuse Rachel Ray and Paula Deen... what let to the confusion in your mind?

Ahhh. Okay.

Paula Deen - Older Southern Woman, white hair, somewhat heavy set. Has gotten in a bunch of trouble for being racist. (Like actual court cases about her being racist.) Has a tendency to add a pound of butter to everything. (One of her sons actually has a cooking show specifically devoted to taking her recipes and making them healthier.)

Rachel Ray - Former cheerleader. Sweet, but waaaaay too perky. Brown hair. Very cute. Calls herself a cook, not a chef. Loves extra virgin olive oil which she refers to as 'EVOO' (ee-vee-oh-oh). Most famous for her first show which was 30-minute meals, so all about putting dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less.

So there's like a generation difference between them, they cook totally different styles of food, generally, and they look and sound completely different. Also, so far as I know, Rachel Ray has never been sued for racial discrimination nor caught on camera saying racist epithets.

Ironically, Rachel Ray actually kind of looks like a slightly more feminine Rachel Maddow with longer hair. They have similar hair color and face shape and smiles. http://www.rachaelray.com/about/
