    “Bobby’s multiyear $80 million deal is nothing compared to what Rachael is negotiating,” spilled a source, even though a Rachael rep says there is “no truth” to this.

    “Bobby is great, but he’s not Rachael,” dished the insider. “She wants to try something new and exciting and will sign the biggest deal in Food Network history.”

    Rachael announced the end of her namesake show after 17 years earlier this month.

    “In my more than 20 plus years in television, I have had 17 wonderful seasons working in daytime television with Rachael. However I’ve made the decision that’s it’s time for me to move on to the next exciting chapter in my broadcast career,” said Ray in a news release. “My passions have evolved from the talk show format production and syndication model to a platform unencumbered by the traditional rules of distribution.”
