Rachel Roy and Rachael Ray felt the sting of the Beyhive after a certain "Becky" line on Beyoncé's Lemonade saw fans pointing fingers at Roy for allegedly sleeping with Jay Z (and also confusing the fashion designer for Ray). The sting was so painful, in fact, that the two actually sent each other gifts in the midst of the drama.

Ray revealed to Us Weekly that she reached out to Roy and gifted her with a very fitting gesture to ease the pain: a bottle of wine. “Rachel [Roy] sent me flowers and I sent her a bottle, a big bottle of wine and a straw," the Rachael Ray Show host said. 

She also thought the Ray/Roy mix-up was awesome:

“I thought it was the coolest thing ever! I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? I’m even mentioned in the same sentence as these people? That’s insane. That’s awesome.’ I think honestly that it was really much more uncomfortable for the rest of the people in that group than for me. I was like, ‘I’m mixed in with all of those peeps?! What the hell?!’ I mean, it’s so far removed from my life. I’m a cook. I have a little talk show. We chit-chat.”

The after-effects of the Beyhive are hard to escape (just ask Keri Hilson), but guzzling down alcohol with a straw (how convenient!) should make the ladies' recovery a bit easier.
