Giada De Laurentiis Denies Matt Lauer, Bobby Flay, John Mayer Cheating Rumors. Why No Alton Brown Rumors?

With Giada De Laurentiis recently announcing her divorce, tabloids brought up old John Mayer rumors and created new rumors due to close relationships between herself and co-workers Bobby Flay and Matt Lauer.  Giada issued a statement to Gossip Cop denying these rumors, which said:
"I have never ever been romantically involved with John Mayer. I met him twice at least 5 or 6 years ago at public events along with hundreds of other people. The small amount of face time with John was in rooms filled with other attendees at these events. I have not seen or even heard from him since. The allegation of an affair was a fabrication back in 2010 and remains so today.....My long-time friendships with my co-workers Matt Lauer and Bobby Flay are exactly that — long-time friendships. There has never been a romantic relationship with these two men."
Matt Lauer also denied any relationship between Giada and himself and said that they are just long-time friends.

With the tabloids trying to tie Giada's co-workers/friends to the split, how come Alton Brown wasn't brought into the mix?  I guess he doesn't help sell magazines, but Alton has not been wearing his wedding band lately as pointed out by a few readers of this site.

In a March 2014 article, Alton is pictured with his wife wearing his wedding band, but in all of his current photos on Instagram/Twitter, he does not have it on.  Also, in the older seasons of Cutthroat Kitchen, he is wearing a wedding band, but in the most recent ones he is not.

Does this mean anything or is it even confirmed that Alton and his wife aren't together?  No.  But if the tabloids were trying to connect the dots by including co-workers, maybe they should have included Alton Brown in the mix.

  1. With all due respect, Alton doesn't appear the type to land the homecoming queen. On the other hand, maybe "geek" is the new "jock"...

  2. But what about Bill Cosby?

  3. I'm sure his bank account could get him plenty of homecoming queens.........

  4. And why would you just say "with these two men?" To eliminate any shred of doubt why would you not say "with these two men or anyone else!"

  5. I noticed that while Alton frequently talks about his daughter on his podcast, he rarely mentions his wife. That means absolutely nothing of course--plenty of happily married dads ramble on and on about their kids, but it was something that caught my attention.

  6. Maybe because Alton doesn't stop talking long enough?

  7. Is Alton's podcast still ongoing? I'm subscribed to it but it hasn't been updated since the Shatner interview in June.

  8. I'm surprised that this is the eighth comment and the first to ask, "What about Lenny?"

  9. it's all about Lenny!January 13, 2015 at 6:03 AM

  10. I've often wondered about Giada and Alton, as well as the other references, and, from what I read, yes, Giada did meet John Mayer at a public event, but then they both left one right after another and went to another hotel where they were seen being cozy together in the bar area and she was seen existing the hotel in the wee early hours of the morning. Giada is such a flirt that I'm more prone to believe these rumors than I might normally be...and possibly and quite probably because I simply cannot stand the woman.

  11. Matt, help me please--I simply do not have the "edit" feature and I didn't proofread. Please change "one right after ANOTHER" to one right after "the other" and change "existing" to "editing." And then please delete this comment. Thank you! I'm an idiot.

    ReplyDelete
  12. OMG, I meant change "existing" to "exiting"...groan.

  13. She is into cowboys!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Lenny is not a real cowboy, but he does a cartoon impression of one. Aside from that, I don't know how ANYONE could be into Lenny.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yup, it has moved over to his own site: http://altonbrown.com/altonblog/the-alton-browncast-podcast/

  16. Newest slate of episodes here - http://altonbrown.com/altonblog/the-alton-browncast-podcast/

  17. Giada seemed extra happy in Lennys presence on NFNS.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Exactly. The phrase "with these two men" implies the addition of "however, as for [names of paramours], —"

    ReplyDelete
  19. I don't know. Giada looked pretty squirmy in response to Lenny's advances.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Maybe that explains his changed demeanor. He seems grouchy lately. Trouble in paradise???

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think Lenny is into Lenny.

  22. Alton talks too much and cooks too little. He should compete in a cooking contest.

    It's boring to watch an announcer, and he doesn't seem to do much else. Bobby Flay competes. So do others. Alton has said he can't cook fast. But with his encylopedic knowledge, he must know how long meat and veggies, etc. takes to cook, so don't tell me he couldn't time things.

    What has he done lately, to show his expertise and talent? Looks to me like he's resting on past laurels. It doesn't take much to be an announcer. Put him with any other FN co-host/s and watch him try to run the whole show. Boring. Too much ego for me. Cook something. And do it without making some dorky skit more suited for the Nickelodean channel. Just my opinion.

  23. I've always had a strong suspicion that Alton doesn't even like Giada. He always seems to have his teeth slightly gritted when they talk.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hey now! I like Nickelodeon! Keep Alton Brown off that channel!

    ReplyDelete
  25. He doesn't seem particularly fond of anybody.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm sure he can but I'm not sure Giada is one of them :p

    ReplyDelete
  27. Honestly means nothing as I knew girls in college that banged all their male friends yet still called them "just friends".

    ReplyDelete
  28. I thought he was gay? The gay man at my work has 6 kids.....

    ReplyDelete
  29. Lenny I doubt, but I do recall how much she liked the Italian guy who he was up against. Her and him wouldn't surprise me.

    ReplyDelete
  30. You nailed it......Giada was drooling over Luca.

    ReplyDelete
  31. why would you assume the worst of someone.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lenny is a simulacra

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wonder if she does that weird fake show all my teeth smile when she is having s3x

    ReplyDelete
  34. Don't forget - she drooled over Ippi too.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Todd?? And his side of the story????

    ReplyDelete
  36. Especially on that lame episode where they went on a "date".

    ReplyDelete
  37. Judy K. I cannot stand the woman anymore either. She was on Jimmy Fallon a month or so ago, and there was a guest on with her, and he made an attempt to hug her, and you would think the gentleman had the plague, because she jumped so far away from him. If you ask me she is a pig. It was speculated that she spits out food, after sampling it on her show. Who does she think she is. No princess that is for sure.

  38. You don't happen to work for the State of Georgia, do you? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  39. She did. I absolutely didn't get that one at all.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I thought Ippi seemed like a nice guy.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I didn't explain like I should have, sorry. I did like Ippi and agree, he seemed nice. I did think he needed some work if he were to have gone further. I just never got any kind of sex appeal like I did from Luca. That's why I wondered why Giada acted like she did.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I guess to each his own. :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Todd looks so old..seems like he can't keep up. Maybe the sex wasn't good enough. Giada is rude and egotistical. She talks to todd like he's 5 with the "can you guess what's in this" crap

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hey Food Network - I used to like Giada but after watching the Food Network Thanksgiving special in 2013 where she was just a mess - either drunk or high on something - I turn the channel when her show comes on. I was disappointed she was going to host on the next Food Network Star again. Love that show but won't be able to watch if she is on it.

  45. I saw Alton Brown's touring show recently in Orlando and he is NOT wearing a wedding ring. I looked it up, he filed for divorce in November!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. That picture of Alton is not with his wife...that is his designer.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Why is no one talking about Alton's divorce? Are his PR people that good? Its on his Wikipedia with a link to the Cobb County Court records. It is bizarre.
