Marcela Valladolid Is All Over the British Tabloids

Food Network's Marcela Valladolid is a judge on the upcoming CBS series The American Baking Competition, which is set to premiere on May 29th.  The show is a spin-off of the UK hit show, The Great British Bake Off, in which celebrity baker Paul Hollywood is one of the judges.  Paul also came over the the US to judge The American Baking Competition, and is known as 'the George Clooney of baking.'

It was recently announced that Paul has decided to split from his wife of 15 years, and that the decision came shortly after filming the show in the US.  The British tabloids then decided to insinuate that it was because of fellow judge Marcela Valladolid.  Marcela is referred to in the articles as 'pretty young US chef' and 'sexy US host.'   Paul is 47 years old with an 11 year-old son, while Marcela is 34 years-old and also has a son.

Doesn't sound like there is much evidence of a romance between the two, besides a working relationship, but I guess we will have to wait and see.  Here is an article from the DailyMail UK, which has over 200 comments already, so I guess this is pretty big news over there.


  1. You gotta love the tabloids -- or so I need reminding myself.

  2. Gotta love the tabloids -- or so I keep reminding myself. Is it just me, or does this "Paul Hollywood" look remarkably like Jeff Foxworthy?
