Although Rachael Ray's brother defended her for missing their aunt's funeral, their cousin is blasting the TV chef for what she calls "insensitive" and "inappropriate" tweets Ray sent out the day of the Dec. 5 service, and RadarOnline.com has all the details.
Ray's aunt, Geraldine Scuderi, tragically passed away Nov. 29 at the age of 77 after she was locked out of Ray's mother's house in upstate New York that she was housesitting at in freezing cold temperatures.
Ray, 45, didn't attend the funeral and instead sent out seemingly casual tweets the day of the family gathering like below:
"It just shows how demeaning Rachael was to my family on the day we buried my mom after she died under such horrible circumstances."
"It's inexcusable," she fumed.
"It shows a total lack of caring."
As Radar previously reported, Mesnick told the magazine last week that she blamed the Ray family for her mother's death.
"My mother is dead today because the Ray family neglected her," she told the Enquirer.
