"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.
