Is TV Celebrity Chef and talk show hostess, Rachael Ray shocked, upset or just aggrieved by the recent sensational claims made by a certain tabloid that her husband, John Cusimano had been seen quite frequently, at the Checkmate club, a hip joint for those seeking an alternative lifestyle?
The perky multi-millionaire chef got married in 2005, to her entertainment lawyer husband, John Cusimano who also is also the lead singer of the New York based rock band called The Cringe. Racheal revealed in an interview that it had been almost love at first sight for the two of them, when they first met at a party.
Rachael Ray has managed to hang on to her gamine smile even though her marriage has been dogged with various unsavory rumors right from the word ‘go’; even before the honeymoon period was over, a sex worker piped up in an interview, claiming that John had hired her more than once, to perform certain foot fetish acts with him. Since then Rachael Ray has been busy denying persistent divorce rumours in the media, insisting that the two are happy and that the various claims were just rumors. She said in an interview that such reports concern her because they often tend to disturb her loved ones who then, worry about her.
But, the recent reports of John Cusimano in Checkmate might just tilt their equation and make her take a stand. It is to be kept in mind that Rachael Ray’s probable divorce has not only emotional, but also financial implications. So, it is to be seen which way Rachael goes and how true are the reports of his swinging ways. To vindicate himself, and probably clear his ‘bad rocker’ image, John Cusimano who knows the importance of taking a stand, has now sent out a statement that suggests that he might sue over the report. Rachael Ray has been lucky in her professional life; she has succeeded in all her ventures and avatars; but, will she be equally lucky in her personal life is a question that remains to be answered by time.
In 1996, Rachael Ray met and dated journalist Dan DiNicola for a couple of years. Many believe Dan DiNicola to be a major factor behind her success in those early years of her career.
