Celebrity chef and restaurateur Giada De Laurentiis was rumored to be dating her co-star Bobby Flay but apparently she is seeing someone else.
Giada broke up with her husband Todd Thompson after twelve years of marriage and they have a 8 year old daughter, Jade. The divorce could have been easy on Thompson because Giada decided to pay child support and agreed to shared custody. Although, she did also part with her nearly $20 million dollar assets.
On the other hand, for Giada the divorce has meant a tumultuous time in her life which she has explained in her new book, “Happy Cooking.” She’s said that the time she spends with her daughter and in the kitchen has been of great help in moving on. Her recipes helped her all through this tough period.
De Laurentiis was reported to be seeing Bobby Flay who was going through a rough patch in his own love life but she has denied that. “People are going to write what people are going to write,” she told to Extra. She says her daughter is still young to be affected from all those rumors but that also means she has to deal with it by herself.
Although if we are to believe an eyewitness who spoke to Radaronline, Giada was spotted at Nobu with a guy who wasn’t Bobby Flay and she seemed totally into him. According to him they had their drinks and were making out all the time sitting outside. The romance seemed so fired up that they were the last people to leave.
Giada keeps herself distant from rumors about her personal life though and has been doing bigger things in her professional life. She is moving on to a partnership with Italian hazelnut liqueur Frangelico. Going back to her own Italian roots, she says they can make an amazing cocktail menu.
