What Giada De Laurentiis And Bobby Flay's Relationship Is Like Today

Celebrity - News


Giada De Laurentiis and Bobby Flay are Food Network fan favorites with great chemistry, and after filming "Bobby and Giada in Italy" together, fans are wondering if a romantic connection has formed between the celebrity chefs. Here’s a rundown of their relationship.

Flay and De Laurentiis met in 2004, but first worked together on “Iron Chef America” in 2006, which led to a bit of a feud between the two. De Laurentiis explained that “We lost [to Rachael Ray and Mario Batali] and he thought it was funny,” which frustrated her as a newbie trying to prove herself.

After not talking to Flay for eight months(!), De Laurentiis became close friends with him, and they worked on several Food Network projects together. Romantic rumors swirled around the two, but De Laurentiis clarified that she has never had that kind of relationship with Flay.

Flay said that "Bobby and Giada in Italy" is “the most beautiful thing that I've ever shot” and “you're going to see an inherent happiness in both of us,” but even a month in Italy didn’t change his and De Laurentiis’ friendship. De Laurentiis is dating television producer Shane Farley, and she and Bobby seem content to remain good friends.
