In the interview, she discussed how she is dealing with the split and what has she made of herself.
De Laurentiis said in the interview, “We had been together since I was 19; I’m now 45. That’s a lifetime with someone. It was a very difficult time.” She also added, “I don’t have the answers; I’m figuring them out as I go. I’m also afraid, like many other women who go through this, and men, too, for that matter.”
Giada De Laurentiis and Todd Thompson split only got finalized this year. They had first announced divorce in December last year.
De Laurentiis revealed to DR.OZ The Good Life magazine that there are whole lot of challenges to face post divorce. She admitted that she has become stronger than before. She said that before she didn’t know how to fix TV and there were those alarm clocks that used to abruptly yell at night and she never used to bother because her husband would deal with them. She also said that now she can do many things herself like if it is the water heater that has turned dysfunctional, she knows she can handle it.
De Laurentiis added, that these moments make one contemplate and one understand that one can take care of oneself. She admitted that every challenge makes one stronger than before and one starts believing in oneself.
Giada De Laurentiis is dating Shane Farley these days and if she is really looking for love again, hope she has found it!
