This Famous Chef Talks Replacing Melissa McCarthy's Sookie on 'Gilmore Girls'
Rachael Ray was one of the chefs who filmed a small part and now she’s speaking out about the experience.
“I was so nervous. I mean, I’m not an actress. Everything we do is unscripted, but I was so impressed that the food stylist made all my food…She made all my real food, so it was kinda cool! I’ve only been real-fired once in life, and I was kind of embarrassed that I got fake-fired on the show, but if it brought back Melissa McCarthy, that’s fine with me,” Rachael told ET.
“Lauren I’ve known for years, she’s one of our favorite guests [on The Rachael Ray Show], and I just think she’s such a delight to be around,” Rachael added. “She makes everybody feel at ease. She’s so lovely and a great actress, [and she] calmed me right down on set!”
“[Stars Hollow] was so charming. Really the cutest film town ever and it reminded me of my hometown in upstate New York, so it was almost like a vacation,” Rachael gushed.
