Chef Giada De Laurentiis finds love in Shane Farley.

Chef Giada De Laurentiis has got a new man in her life and he is Shane Farley, the executive producer of ‘FabLife’ and the former producer of ‘The Rachael Ray Show.’ The famous chef opened up to People magazine about life after her divorce from ex-husband Todd Thompson—who she was married to for 11 years—including diving into the dating world. “I don’t do any of that, and I would say that uh…it’s ok that maybe I don’t need to date so much because maybe I already have someone I like and I don’t have to.” However, she tells People that her 7-year-old daughter, Jade, comes before anything, and right now she and Thompson are focusing on out raising her after their divorce was finalized in September 2014. “It’s only been a year-and-a-half so we’ll see how it goes but so far it’s been pretty good,” says the Los Angeles native. “I have her here with me [in New York City] for a week.Cohen didn’t press any further, but Williams did make sure to ask De Laurentiis Wednesday how serious her new relationship is. “Are you in love?” Williams asked.“And I will tell you this is the first time I’ve actually said that,” the famed foodie added during Wednesday’s visit to Williams’ talk show.

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. It can get a little tricky but I send lots of pictures and I take lots of pictures and we actually were on the carriage ride yesterday and she was FaceTiming her dad at the same time so we sort of multitask.” “Both parents need to keep the [other] parent involved in what’s happening with the child,” she says. “So when the child comes back to you and they share these stories you’re like ‘oh yeah, I saw that’ or ‘oh yeah, that was part of that’d you know what questions to ask so you’re both in it.” Williams wasted no time asking De Laurentiis about her September 2014 divorce from Todd Thompson after 11 years of marriage. “I’ve always loved cooking, and I always say that I sort of gained my confidence as a young girl in the kitchen, that’s where I felt the most creative and empowered,” De Laurentiis said. “What happened over the years working, you get caught up in your world, and all of a sudden my world came sort of crashing and I got divorced. A source close to the new couple says they’re totally “in love”—something Giada herself recognized during a recent appearance on The Wendy Williams Show.

We’ve worked for many years together, but I don’t think that’s ever going to happen because I’m smarter than that.” After Cohen, 47, told the TV personality that fans wanted the two celeb chefs to get together because of their chemistry, she admitted she’d never date another chef. In fact, the 45-year-old’s sister Eloisa De Laurentiis posted photos of the two from Halloween with several other members of her family (she has since taken the pics down). In January De Laurentiis responded to allegations that she had extramarital affairs with both Flay and John Mayer, vehemently denying any romance with either of them. “My long-time friendships with my co-workers…are exactly that—long-time friendships,” she said at the time. “There has never been a romantic relationship with these two men.” She addressed it again on Watch What Happens Live when a viewer asked her to pick the “craziest” rumor or tabloid story written about her. “Probably that I have slept with half of America,” she said.

It made me happy.” Williams mentioned romance rumors involving Bobby Flay, who split with his wife Stephanie March in the spring; both chefs have denied the reports.
