Celebrity chefs Bobby Flay and Giada de Laurentiis seem to have moved on from the controversy of their alleged affair. However, rumors are once again circulating on the web as they will be working together again in the Food Network Star Season 12.
With Flay and De Laurentiis back on the same show, it once again sparked speculations that they are seeing each other. According to CSN, the controversy started after they were observed to be ?overly civil? towards each other on the set. As a result, reports stating that the two might be having a secret affair are again back on the table.
On the other hand, contrary to CSN?s post, She Knows noted that the judges? ?lackluster performance? was specifically ironic given the fact that the previous episode of the show had them teaching the contestants how to be charming on camera. But, it can also be interpreted that because of their alleged secret relationship, their chemistry in front of the camera has been affected.
It can be recalled that because of the said ?affair,? De Laurentiis got divorced from her husband, Todd Thompson. Amidst these rumors, De Laurentiis and Flay remained friends. However, these speculations seem to be not true as both of them are happily committed to their respective partners.
According to Radar Online, De Laurentiis is now dating Jamaican-born model Kevin Navayne. The publication?s source shared that the two were seen having a private and ?very discreet? dinner ?at the smallest table near the bar.? The source then added, ?They were speaking very closely together, and whispering in each other?s ears.?
Meanwhile, Flay also had to go through a divorce from his ex-wife Stephanie March. He then started dating actress Helene Yorke, which broke out in the news last March. After the public knew about Flay-Yorke relationship, the rumors about the alleged affair between Flay and de Laurentiis stopped, said Movie News Guide.
