ITW: Stephanie March has ‘proof’ of Bobby Flay’s multiple affairs over the years


For years now, we’ve been talking about Bobby Flay’s alleged wandering eye. I’ve always assumed that at least half of the stories are true, especially those stories about Flay cheating on his wife with January Jones, Giada de Laurentiis and some assorted restaurant employees. Well, the tabloids have picked up on all of the rumors in a big way, and there are two decent stories out this week. By that I mean the stories are mostly a rehash with some Stephanie March-divorce drama thrown in. First up: In Touch Weekly says that Stephanie March knows of at least THREE of Flay’s affairs, especially the one with January Jones.

Bobby Flay’s estranged wife Stephanie March has accused him of cheating on her with January Jones in divorce documents, according to a shock new report in In Touch Weekly. Stephanie allegedly accuses the famous chef of having three affairs during their 10-year marriage, one of which was with the Mad Men star, the magazine claims.

In Touch’s source alleges: ‘Stephanie is claiming in court papers that Bobby committed adultery with January several times during the early months of 2010. She says they had sex many times and in different places, including the London hotel in Los Angeles.’

In Touch’s source claims: ‘They had a huge fight over January shortly before Stephanie asked him to move out of their place. There is communication between Bobby and January that indicates they were more than acquaintances.’

The magazine goes on to allege that Law And Order: SVU star Stephanie claims in the divorce documents that Bobby also cheated on her with his assistant and a food stylist.

‘This fight is far from over,’ the insider alleged. ‘Stephanie only wants what is fair, but she’s prepared to do what she needs to get it. She has proof of affairs.’

As I said, I’m willing to believe it. The only part that doesn’t really ring true is that Flay and Jones were still in communication as late as this year. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure they had an affair, but they were probably done with each other years ago.

Meanwhile, Radar/Star says that Flay and Giada de Laurentiis have an on-going fling happening. Giada and Bobby have been friends for years, and they were actually together in Miami, drinking and having a good time on the weekend before Giada announced her own split. Radar basically says that Flay and Giada had dinner together recently and they were holding hands, canoodling and generally being couple-y. Giada’s rep issued a flat denial though:

Things are not heating up between Giada de Laurentiis and Bobby Flay. According to Radar Online, the Food Network stars, who are in the process of divorcing their respective spouses, were “holding hands” under the table while having dinner at Emilio’s Ballato in New York City. A source claimed De Laurentiis, 44, and Flay, 50, “even carved their initials in a secret place on the wall.”

However, De Laurentiis’ rep tells E! News exclusively that the report is “not true.” So what happened?

“Back in December, Giada had dinner at Bellato with her agent. Bobby Flay was also having dinner with some friends and dropped by Giada’s table to say hi,” her rep tells E! News. “They did not have dinner, nor was there any touching going on.”

Flay’s rep confirms what De Laurentiis’s rep said.

[From E! News]

Sure. I’ll believe that they didn’t have dinner together out in the open recently, although they were seen together (and there was no denial from Giada’s rep) the weekend before Giada’s split announcement. I believe Giada and Bobby have probably had a “thing” in the past and maybe they’ll revisit that in the future, but for now… whatever it is, it’s on hold.

    Did JJ ever reveal the id of her baby daddy?

    • Mar says:

      It’s very obvious that it is Claudia Schiffers hubby, who directed her in X Men, the baby’s name even begins with an X

      • MinnFinn says:

        This photo of Xander side by side with Vaughn makes me believe Vaughn is definitely the dad.

      • Sugar says:

        The baby looks more like Jason Sudeikis, with whom she was also rumored to have had an affair. The kid has the same oddly shaped head as JS.

      • Luca76 says:

        The one piece of insider gossip I’ve ever gotten first hand from someone that knows JJ is that CS’s husband is in fact the father (I believe I shared that here way back when).

        The Sudekis rumors are silly to me because there wouldn’t be a reason for him to deny paternity. They were legitimately dating and he wasn’t married at the time.

      • Dubois says:

        Matthew Vaughn all the way. If you recall, her pregnancy and birth coincided with massive weight loss on Claudia Schiffer’s part, and the baby looks like Matthew. The Jason stories are ridiculous to me.

    • Div says:

      Kid looks just like Jason Sudekis and his child with Olivia Wilde, but it seems odd to not mention it considering he wasn’t in a relationship or anything. I think it’s likely her X Men’s director, even if the kid is a red-head like Bobby, because of the timing. At the same time, I feel bad for the kid that everyone’s speculating over his paternity….she would have been better off just lying and saying it was an ex-bf who wasn’t famous and who wished to remain private.

      • Ash says:

        “At the same time, I feel bad for the kid that everyone’s speculating over his paternity….she would have been better off just lying and saying it was an ex-bf who wasn’t famous and who wished to remain private. ”

        Exactly. It’s her son who’s most affected by all of the speculation. She should have kept quiet.

    • lila fowler says:

      It’s very likely Matthew Vaughn. The kid looks just like him, the timing is right, and I don’t believe Jason Sudekis would demand secrecy considering he was single at the time. The secrecy, IMO, is because the father is married.

    • veronica says:

      The kid looks like both Matthew Vaughn and Jason Sudeikis but MV’s actions at the time of the pregnancy announcement put him more in the “your ARE the father” column. He dropped out of promoting X-Men FC because of “health issues”, put out a weird and kind of out of nowhere denial of paternity, and he and Claudia Schiffer high tailed it back to London. Dude was acting shady so he probably was being shady.

      • Diana says:

        After that side by side comparison photo baby daddy is def mv

      • LAK says:

        If MV is the father, let’s hope the kid knows and MV has a relationship of sorts. The reason I say this is MV grew up thinking one person was his father and found out in his twenties that someone entirely different was his father. The guy he thought was his father repeatedly and publicly denied he was his father and always acted coldly to MV. So MV grew up thinking how own father didn’t want him to extent that he would publicly deny him. THEN he finds out that someone else is his father. That has got to screw with a person’s head.

      • Ally says:

        Also around then Schiffer starting taking many high-profile modelling jobs after years of focusing on her family. I’m thinking she wanted to assert her independence, show that doofus how little he appreciated her being there on the home front, and my worst assumption: that he justified his affair by saying he thought he’d married a supermodel not a housewife, so she wanted to appear supermodelish to him again.

        Ew. Aside from the funny, self-aware Josh Groban, The fabulous JJ should really examine her attraction to hopeless egomaniacal douchebros.

    • Jensbend says:

      There’s also Jeremy Piven. To me they share those downward sloping eyes.

    • Jen_Etics says:

      On January Jones’ baby’s daddy. I am not a geneticist, but it would be VERY rare for two blue eyed people to have a brown eyed child. Not impossible, but extremely rare. MV and BF both have blue eyes like January Jones, so there is that.

      • veronica says:

        It’s not as simple as those Mendelian genetic charts we learn about in high school would lead you to believe. It’s not super common but it’s not exactly rare that two blue eyes people could have a brown eyed child.

  2. Carolina says:

    He needs a new makeup artist.

    • mimif says:

      But what about Giardia? I’m positively transfixed with her visage in that first photo. So much wax figure happening there.

      • JudyK says:

        You saved me a post. She and her rectangular robotic smile absolutely repulse me. Seriously, I can’t stand to look at her and refuse to watch anything she’s on. Her personality is just as phoney as her plastic appearance. I’m a Food Network addict, but the channel switches the minute she appears.

        And seeing pics of these two sleazes together is particularly repulsive…glad I hadn’t eaten anything before seeing the image.

      • MadMenluv says:

        lol omg GIARDIA…that gave me a good chuckle

      • Lucy2 says:

        I don’t watch cooking shows, so I’ve only seen her in still photos. Does she look that…odd on camera? It’s mannequin-like.

  3. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Unless they had a clause in their prenup stating that all bets were off if one of them cheated, I don’t see what difference this makes. Is he a despicable slime? Yup. Did you sign a stupid agreement? Yup.

    • Santia says:

      My thought was: “so what?” New York is “no fault” state; you can be a serial killer and it doesn’t play into what’s “fair” in a divorce. She signed a pre-nup. End of. Where were the zealous attorneys she has now when she signed this pre-nup??

    • hadlyB says:

      Maybe for publicity. If she has more info on other celeb affairs and those celebs don’t want their names out or he doesn’t he might pay up.

      She might be just starting low with JJ because no one cares he banged her. She might have more ammo she’s withholding.

      As for me I hope she does have a huge long list, and he continues to be an ass until the bitter end — this makes for some good gossip!!

  4. Div says:

    I know I’m one of the few that feel this way, but she signed a prenup and to try and walk it back is ridiculous imo. Yes, Bobby is a cheating, arrogant, angry little scumbag. However, he’s always been this way and she was his third or fourth wife….this isn’t some guy in his 20s who she thought she could “change” (or was capable of change). The whole public outrage and shock thing seems ridiculous considering he has a long time pattern. She’s independently wealthy and likely had a decent lawyer when she signed her prenuptial agreement, so I’m just side-eying the attempt to change it now. You can’t change a legal document because someone cheats unless there is a cheating clause written in it or she was coerced into writing it (and like I said I doubt she was coerced).

    I don’t doubt he’s cheated on her with a string of women….probably more than 3.

    • Janie says:

      I absolutely agree with you. She signed a prenup, done deal. His wandering eye is well known. This really blew up when he cut off her credit cards, she went nuts. It’s time to move on before the lawyers end up with all this money they’re fighting over.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Totally agree. She was not an 18 year old naive victim.

  5. Tori says:

    Of course Giada and Bobby’s reps are going to deny it, but Flay has had way more than 3 affairs. I hope Stephanie has proof of many of them. Get him, girl!

  6. Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

    I wonder why women find him so irresistible? He must be packing.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      Listen: this little weasel could be packing Moby Dick and I’d still run the other way. He’s a serial cheater, plain and simple.

    • Mila says:

      i am also wondering. Even if he was packing who would want to find out? The cheating reputation isnt even the most off turning thing about him and i hate cheaters.

    • belle de jour says:

      Power. Celebrity. Money. Perhaps it’s something akin to the Kissinger factor.

      I have seen the most beautiful and accomplished women do everything but throw themselves at creepazoids & ranting, classless ersatz Napoleons like this – at crowded cocktail parties, in front of their peers – and directly in front of said creepazoids’ wives or girlfriends.

      Have come to think of it as a sort of dog-whistle mating call that they each hear, without an ounce of shame on either side of the equation.

      • kibbles says:

        The cards will always be stacked against women when it comes to what rich, powerful, and/or influential men can get away with. March should have known that he would cheat. Maybe some women are naive and arrogant enough to believe that their beauty and charm will change a man and make him faithful. That is almost never the case and it is even more so for rich men who have many more options available to them and plenty of women willing to participate in ruining a marriage to become the next trophy wife. It doesn’t matter if he is packing, handsome, ugly, young, or old. Good men are hard to come by and money will always woo a good amount of women into bed with some of the most disgusting and vile men.

    • Beth says:

      Regarding the rumors about him fooling around with his restaurant employees, I think it was him throwing his power and weight around. And let’s face it, his notoriety was probably very attractive to the young, impressionable women who were probably even just flattered at the chance to work at one of his establishments.

      But Giada and January? You can say what you will about their reputation, persona and talents (or lack thereof), but c’mon — they had better options!

  7. minx says:

    But if there is no cheating clause in the prenup, how will she get more money?
    Flay is such a douche, I’m sure he couldn’t care less if there are rumors about his infidelity.

  8. Adrien says:

    What’s going on w/ Giada on the pics above? Where the pics altered? She looks like a fun house version of Natalie Portman.

  9. Size Does Matter says:

    Brings new meaning to the phrase “Bobby cheated in January.”

  10. lemon says:

    Is he wearing concealer and bronzer in that top pic?

  11. M.A.F. says:

    There are pap shots of Jones leaving his place the after some award show a few years back. It shows do her doing the “walk of shame” and then getting into a taxi. I actually thought he was single at the time. I didn’t know he was married for 10 years!

  12. bella says:

    i know that there is compelling evidence that MV is JJ’s baby’s father, but i’ve always believed that Flay is the father.
    the resemblance is strong.
    and the timing i think may be more in line with the birth.
    will have to look that up.

    sounds like his wife knew of the affairs, since she’s claiming in the court papers to have proof.
    did she forgive and try to work it out?
    now they’re at each other’s throats…
    and it will probably get uglier.

    don’t know what the story is with giada…she’s got such a reputation.
    i used to love her, too, but as another poster said upthread, she repulses me and i have to change the channel.
    this happened ahead of the Bobby Flay rumors.
    she started out endearing and gorgeous with great recipes.
    her most recent on air persona is entirely different.

  13. JJ’s son Xander bears a striking resemblance to JS’s son Otis. Especially if you look at pictures of them when they’re about the same age.
    Maybe he told her he didn’t want kids? Maybe she got pregnant before the divorce was finalized? Maybe he was dating half a dozen different women and she tried to lock down her status? Maybe she realized he wasn’t going to be in the picture when she was closer to her due date? I don’t know. I wouldn’t rule any of the contenders out.

  14. Amy says:

    I wonder who’s representing her because they seem to be doing a very poor job of it.

    She can’t keep trying the spaghetti against the wall method and see which bad deed sticks to him. If she’s got something good and strong that’ll have real impact on that prenup then she needs to stick to that and really like put the leg focus there.

    All of this…the tapas, horse, and cheating likely have exactly 0 effect on the prenup and is just her way of rousing sympathy. Not the best plan at all, soon she’ll just seem bitter and greedy and waste any funds she has fighting a case she won’t win.

  15. JenniferJustice says:

    Am I the only one who imagines Flay and De Laurentis feeding eachother while they have sex? Oh, just me? my bad.

  16. claire says:

    Is January Jones the defacto person to throw out in a celebrity divorce or does she really have this many affairs with married men? It feels like deja vu here with this accusation.

  17. Stephanie says:

    People get emotionally invested in making the other spouse’s lives miserable and just end up fighting and giving their assets to the attorneys. It’s ridiculous. It’s over, guys. Take your money and walk away.

  18. jferber says:

    I still like Flay as the father because it’s repulsive enough to be true (no shade at the little boy, the innocent party). I still see Jack Nicholson as a daddy possibility since he kept his baby daddy status secret with another actress (and then took her house away that he bought her when she revealed it was him). I see January making extremely poor and stupid choices about men (excepting the Hemsworth brother, which was clearly a lust thing). How do you “fall” for Bobby Flay or Jack Nicholson? You don’t. You just go where the money train is going (or the publicity train or whatever). I can’t respect January’s choices because they are both gross and calculated. The calculated part, to me, is much more damning.

    • ana says:

      What choices? Everything about January’s love life is a rumour. The last boyfriend she was seen with was Jason Sudeikis and that was years ago. Everything about her love life since then has been from the tabloids. I think it’s disgusting that everyone keeps slut shaming her because she’s a single mother who doesn’t talk about her sex life.

  19. ana says:

    The more she leaks to the tabloids the more pathetic Stephanie March seems. Flay obviously doesn’t care what she throws at him. She signed a pre nup with him. Stop blaming everyone else for your problems.
