Rumors have swirled that celebrity chefs Giada de Laurentiis and Bobby Flay have hooked up since they both announced their respective divorces earlier in 2015.
But de Laurentiis is set the record straight about her romantic life, telling “Watch What Happens Live” host Andy Cohen that she is not dating Flay.
"We do get together on 'Food Network Star,'" she 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."
De Laurentiis set off the rumor mill again this week after admitting to Wendy Williams that she has a new man in her life but she would not reveal his identity.
The Italian-born chef told Cohen that dating another chef was out of the question.
"Like I said, I know better. I'm one of them."
She giggled when the talk show host asked her if she was in love with her new mystery man but didn’t give a yes or no.
