The Year in Food 2007

Rachael Ray’s Husband Is Weird

John Cusimano, the lawyer and wannabe rock star who married Food Network duchess Rachael Ray in September 2005, got some unwanted attention this year, after the National Enquirer printed a story in November 2006 that said Cusimano paid a woman named Jeaninne Walz to spit on him and rub her feet in his face. The piling on continued throughout 2007, though Ray denied rumors of a split. —Meredith Arthur
