Zap2it: You were the first-season winner of "Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off." Does that up the stakes for you against Guy Fieri in returning for the show's new season?
Rachael Ray: You know what? Guy and I are both very competitive people, but everybody's playing for charity ... and seeing how hard everyone works, no matter whose team they're on, there's a certain amount of keeping it in perspective. You're excited for whoever the winner turns out to be, because they've truly earned it.
Zap2it: How would you describe the nature of your rivalry with Guy?
Rachael Ray: We're a lot like brother and sister, so it's fun for us. It's like friends ribbing each other.
Zap2it: With the busy schedule that also includes your syndicated weekday talk show and the book tour you recently finished, how comfortably does the making of "Celebrity Cook-Off" fit in for you? »
