    Default Celeb Chef Giada Di Laurentiis and Husband To Divorce; Married 11 Years


    Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis is sharing personal news on her Facebook page. The Food Network star says she is splitting from fashion designer Todd Thompson, her husband of 11 years.

    "After an amicable separation since July, Todd and I have decided to end our marriage," she writes.
    "Although our decision to separate comes with a great deal of sadness, our focus on the future and overwhelming desire for our family's happiness has given us the strength to move forward on separate, yet always connected paths."
    De Laurentiis, 44, and Thompson, who married in May 2003, have one daughter, Jade Marie, 6.
    "Todd and I share a beautiful daughter and a lifetime of great memories that we both treasure more than anything. We are so thankful for our friends and family, and really appreciate the support in this time of change."

We are so thankful for our friends and family, and really appreciate the support in this time of change."


    In 2011, the star chef shared some insights into her marriage, especially when it came to her fame, in a Redbook interview.
    "I think it can be hard for any man to sometimes be upstaged by his wife. So when I'm home, I work very hard to be Todd's wife and Jade's mother. I have no problem going back to those traditional roles. I try to be Giada, the young girl that he met 20 years ago and fell in love with. All men want to be treated like kings in a relationship, and I think if women don't indulge that sometimes, their men are likely to stray and look for someone who can give that to them. It's simple. It's not brain surgery."

    I don't follow celebrity chefs...at all. That said, I totally thought she was single, especially after all of those blow job blinds about her.

    I'm too lazy to sift through shit here, so I just googled "Giada blind item reveals"...lol. Mostly to prove to myself that I wasn't seeing things.

    ^^BIs about Giada getting her freak on - some of them were posted here. John Mayer, Tyson Beckford and a few others. Maybe Todd got tired of it all, but so many people swear that he is gay so YMMV.

    Someone posted on another thread that Giada allegedly has issues because of some shit her dad did to her as a teenager...

    Here is the link to the article about her father; don't feel comfortable posting it.

    Her name is not mentioned, but her dad's is; she took her grandparents name I think.

    Now I feel bad for not liking her. I just can not watch her in anything. She's just too...well I don't know what it is exactly about I don't like about her. It's like she tries too hard to be perfect. She has no visible personality. Same with Padma Lakshmi. The bitch vibe oozes out of both of them to me.

    I do notice when Giada is in the kitchen with a guest, she gets a tad controlling. Bobby Flay does too.

    That story is so sad. I'm surprised we haven't heard more about it before.

    I'm not surprised about her divorce. I've seen him on her show a few times, they didn't seem suited to each other.

    He's at least a decade or so older than her.
    I've read where some incest survivors go through periods of lots of sexual activity.
