Giada De Laurentiis made it known to the public that she has a boyfriend and has never been intimate with her celebrity chef bad-boy Bobby Flay.
“We do get together on Food Network Star,” the celeb chef, 45, joked. “Well, we’re very good friends. We’ve worked for many years together, but I don’t think that’s ever going to happen because I’m smarter than that,” the 45-year-old De Laurentiis at Home host was quoted by U.S. Magazine.
De Laurentiis, who is of Italian descent, divulged the magazine of already having a boyfriend after the legal matters of her separation from fashion designer Todd Thompson was wrapped up. Their 11-year of union gave them a daughter, Marie De Laurentiis-Thompson in 2008.
Her disapproval on being linked to the reality tv food mogul stems from Food Network channel fans who love the harmonious atmosphere that they emanate in the lengthy span they have worked side by side.
The Daytime Emmy Award Winner only added that she “[would] never date another chef.” De Laurentiis stated that she doesn’t want to be intimate with someone who is also within her scope of practice because “I know better [and] I’m one of them.”
Earlier this year, a lot of title-tattle surfaced that there was something going on between the two Food Network personalities.
However, Flay’s separation from his legal wife, actress Stephanie March was a chained up affair as the latter stockpiled legal disputes one after the other, as mentioned previously in The Daily Beast.
March contested the pre-nup alimony of the “Bobby’s Burger Palace” founder as his present day hefty net worth is partly due to her help – as the Law & Order: SVU alum “suggested menu additions and essentially [taught] Bobby Flay what tapas [are]” and that Flay helped himself with the earnings from the racehorse which he gave to her.
