Things are heating up for Giada De Laurentiis and Shane Farley, whose romance has been the subject of intense scrutiny lately.
The celebrity chef, 45, and the TV producer were spotted warmly embracing each other during their holiday vacation in Mexico, as Farley smiled and clasped his hands around his girlfriend’s waist.
Although they looked to be at ease, Farley’s soon-to-be ex-wife Jennifer Giamo is anything but calm these days.
Giamo and Bobby Flay’s ex-wife, Stephanie March, were overheard having a “royal bitchfest” recently about their man problems at a New York City bar. De Laurentiis has been linked to Flay in the past, though both have furiously denied ever having an affair.
The insider noted, “[They were discussing] Giada having to be brought into court because [she and Shane] were having an affair.”
The exact timing of De Laurentiis and Farley’s romance is now under the microscope.
Giamo is on a witch hunt to determine if her husband began dating the Food Network star during Giamo’s 15-year marriage to Farley.
In a previous story about the budding romance, De Laurentiis’ rep insisted the pair just began dating this past August.
