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.
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.
