The TV chef decided to talk about what had happened between her and her ex-husband since the media had convinced everyone that they’d split up due to her having numerous affairs. But according to Giada, that’s not what happened at all. According to her, the two grew apart because of her growing success.
He liked feeling like he had the upper hand in the relationship, and the two just weren’t the same people that they were when they’d gotten together decades before. Of course, he probably won’t admit to the former if asked.
A Rumored Affair
During the breakup, all sorts of nasty rumors about Giada were circulating on the internet. Not only was she said to have had a relationship outside of her marriage, but she had actually had several. Some of the rumors even suggested that she’d been getting together with fellow Food Network star Bobby Flay.
There were even reports that she had been out partying with him the night before she and Todd announced their divorce in 2014. But the rumors didn't stop there.
The List Goes On
Giada has denied all of the rumors about her extra-marital affairs, but that doesn’t stop the public – and the media – from speculating. In 2011, the tabloids hit the ground running with stories of a fling between the Food Network star and Matt Lauer.
Both parties swore that nothing was going on between them, but it was taking a toll on Giada to have all of these outlandish claims flying around out there. She knew that she had to do something to defend herself and clear everything up.
Lots of Love
Although Giada and Todd are no longer together, it doesn’t hurt their relationship with daughter Jade. That’s mainly because they’ve both made sure to prioritize her and her feelings throughout her life since the divorce.
Jade has gotten to travel worldwide and enjoy all kinds of fun activities with her mom and her dad, both together and separately. And, since she’s grown up with a professional chef, she’s developed quite a passion for cooking herself, which is very evident by everything she’s up to these days.
Since Jade has spent a lot of her childhood hanging around Giada when she’s at her restaurant or filming a show, she’s decided that she has quite a passion for food and for cooking herself. But not only that, she’s even developed her mom’s abilities for being on camera, which she put to use in her own cooking show that she posted online recently called " How to Hack it With Jade ."
Maybe she’ll keep following along in mom’s footsteps, like the ones that led her to become the first female chef to open her own restaurant on the Vegas strip.
