Bobby Flay and Chelsea Handler fixed up on a blind date by a friend? Did the night end with Bobby making brunch for Chelsea the next day? Food Network fans know just how much Bobby Flay loves brunch! Or was the get-together simply a publicity stunt?
A source contacted Page Six and divulged that Booby Flay and Chelsea Handler arrived at the Blue Plate Oysterette in Santa Monica, California – gasp – together on Wednesday, January 27.
Apparently the duo wasn’t trying to hide the fact that they were together. Bobby and Chelsea did sit at a back table the fellow diner revealed – and described Flay and Handler’s behavior as flirty. “it looked like a date,” the source said.
Chelsea’s docuseries “Chelsea Does” is currently airing on Netflix recently and her dating life was the subject of the first installment. Handler met with a matchmaker and was set up on a few dates with men who were entirely incompatible. Is Flay the latest guy with whom Chandler has been matched?
Handler taped an interview with Ellen DeGeneres the day of the planned supper and let it be known that she was going out on a date with “someone famous” that very night.
Chelsea was tight-lipped on her date’s name, but Handler did say, “he’s in an extension of this business” – meaning show business. Handler continued, “A friend set us up. I’ve never met him before but I know of him. You’d know him.”
Is this a joke or for real? Chelsea Handler signed a seven-year deal with mega giant streaming service Netflix for the four-part docuseries “Chelsea Does” as well as a talk show. Was this date with Bobby Flay material for the Handler’s comedy routines?
You’re either going to feel sorry for Bobby, shake your head in wonderment or laugh so hard your sides split. Chelsea has never been married and admits in her docuseries she never expects to tie the knot. Bobby, on the other hand, has been married three times. In July 2015 Flay and third wife Stephanie March’s divorce was final – the couple was married for a decade.
Chelsea Handler might want to give Giada De Laurentiis a call and ask for advice about dating a celebrity chef. Giada made it clear in a past interview that she was not dating a chef and would never date a chef, and especially would not date Bobby Flay.
Does Bobby have any idea what he is in for with Handler? Chelsea is known to be brutal on ex-boyfriends in her comedy routines after a break-up. Just ask Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Dave Salmoni, Andre Balazs or former E! Networks president Ted Harbert.
