Talk about a recipe for success. Food Network personality Rachael Ray has just signed a deal with Oprah Winfrey's production company to host a daytime syndicated talk show targeted to start in fall 2006. And we all know what happens to television Cinderellas when the Big O waves her magic wand. Just ask that pumpkin head called Dr. Phil. Not that Ray is a nobody. She's already got a hungry following as the overbooked host of 30 Minute Meals, $40 a Day, Inside Dish and Tasty Travels.

BACK WHEN Tattle was a boy, people kept their opinions to themselves. Then sportstalk radio let every fan with a transistor and a rotary phone have a forum to boorishly mouth off. Then political call-in radio replaced the oratory of Lincoln with the bloviating of . . . pick anyone. This development meshed with online comments sections, which allowed trolls who couldn't write a whole letter to their newspaper to spew venom before the minimalist ideas rattling around in their brains even had time to gestate.

How many times does a celeb couple need to make a PR circus show of their marriage to allay consumer doubts? Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have made a profession of it. In their latest marketing putsch, in support of Men in Black 3, the duo tell People they are counting the days to their 15th wedding anniversary in December with such joy as hasn't been seen since before Adam and Eve discovered underwear. "We make the effort to always put the family first," says Will.

Stan Kourakos was lured into the pizzelle factory at the edge of Norristown one day in 2003, enticed not by the aromas of anise and vanilla that floated from the squat brick building, but by the prospect of new business. Kourakos was a salesman for a packaging distributor, and he hoped to persuade the owner of Little Pepi's to buy all the boxes needed for those crispy, wafflelike cookies from the company he represented. As it turned out, it was Kourakos who wound up buying - Little Pepi's, that is. Six years and a move to Hatfield Township later, the cookie company is getting the best opportunity of its 45-year-history to go big-time.

CBS3 REPORTER Elizabeth Hur called it quits on Monday. I heard she decided to leave the station to try something new, which Hur corroborated when I reached her. "Truly, the decision to leave comes from my ambition to grow and my desire to explore new challenges," Hur said, noting that the station tried to work with her until she ultimately decided to leave. Hur, who grew up in Ambler and graduated from Upper Dublin High School before matriculating at NYU, joined CBS3 in 2008.

EVERYTHING RACHAEL RAY Everything Rachael Ray is devoted to the Food Network chef, talk-show host and cookbook. It has news, upcoming shows, ratings, clips, appearances and recipes. There's an RR timeline and an RR forum. There's even an RR "store. " You would think that anyone who devoted so much time to Everything Rachael Ray would be in need of a life - if not a diet or professional help. But Madeline Miller, 29, is delightfully normal and engaging. She's tall, thin, with shoulder-length blond hair and a professional appearance.

Rachael Ray delivered more than kitchen equipment to Frankford High School Monday. The celebrity chef, who had just last week promised to renovate the school's culinary-arts room in honor of teacher Wilma Stephenson, also brought in Iron Chef America star Bobby Flay to cook, and she handed out $50,000 in college scholarships - $5,000 each to 10 of Stephenson's graduating seniors. Stephenson, whose tough-love approach gained national attention after the 2009 release of the documentary Pressure Cooker, learned Wednesday that Ray would donate a kitchen renovation.

Here is an excerpt from Craig LaBan's online chat. Craig LaBan: Is anyone else bummed over the bad words about bacon, corned beef, hot dogs, and other processed meats issued by the World Health Organization, which on Tuesday warned that eating them regularly can seriously increase your risk of colon and stomach cancer? OK . . . it's not exactly a news flash that we should be moderating our intake of fatty cured meats (and red meats, too, which also got a disapproving glance from the WHO)

The South by Southwest Music Festival, which takes place in Austin, Texas, this week, is a colossal event. Last year, more than 2,200 bands played official SXSW showcases. Hundreds more performed nonsanctioned gigs ranging from taco-shop parking-lot parties to corporate-branded megastar events. In 2014, it's only getting bigger, with stars you'd think wouldn't need the exposure, such as Coldplay, Kendrick Lamar, and Lady Gaga playing at events sponsored by Apple and Doritos. What are the chances of an up-and-coming act like Cheerleader, a Philadelphia power-pop band that played only their second gig in public last week at Kung Fu Necktie, gaining their share of buzz?

ALEXANDRIA, Va. - The first major nutritional overhaul of school meals in more than 15 years means most offerings - including the always popular pizza - will come with less sodium, more whole grains, and a wider selection of fruits and vegetables on the side. First lady Michelle Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced the new guidelines during a visit Wednesday with elementary students. Michelle Obama, also joined by celebrity chef Rachael Ray, said youngsters would learn better if they don't have growling stomachs at school.

SUDDENLY, THERE'S a new garden and mural at East Passyunk and Wharton Street in South Philly where there once was dilapidated mess. But things are still a bit of a mess. For decades - since 1947, according to lot owner Maria Olivieri - the concrete plot was a parking area and a Dumpster area for Pat's King of Steaks. (Back then, Pat's belonged to Harry and Pat Olivieri, her father and uncle.) In recent decades, the slab had become an eyesore encased in drooping chain link. Its main use?

PATTI LABELLE could teach Rachael Ray a thing or two about cooking. And she did. The iconic songbird appeared yesterday afternoon on the Great Philly Grill-Off on "The Rachael Ray Show," which taped outside Pat's King of Steaks, in South Philly. LaBelle told us before the taping that she was making her fried corn on the show. The diabetic singing sensation says she doesn't eat the dish herself but people will hurt themselves trying to eat too much of it once they've tried it. We asked LaBelle what was up with her musically and she teased, "So much I can't tell you yet. "Also I am Beyonce 's baby's godmother, her spiritual godmother," she told us jokingly.
