    "After an amicable separation since July, Todd and I have decided to end our marriage," she wrote. "Although our decision to separate comes with a great deal of sadness, our focus on the future and overwhelming desire for our family's happiness has given us the strength to move forward on separate, yet always connected paths." ...

    I don't like her, I don't know why but I don't like her. I hope the best for her, but I just don't like her. Cooking shows have always been one of my favorite shows, just not hers. jmo
    It's my opinion if no link provided.

    I liked Giada as a chef and teacher on her "Everyday Italian" series on Food Network. I liked her recipes and cooking tips and own two of Giada's cookbooks: Everday Italian and Giada At Home. Once Giada became successful at promoting her "brand", she was much too self-involved to be likeable. Giada made an absolute fool of herself on the 2013 FN Thanksgiving special during which she was obviously intoxicated, behaved like a spoiled child, and sliced her index finger when she shouldn't have been handling a knife. I haven't watched her since.

    Stuff happens. I don't think Giada getting a divorce is worse than anyone else simply because she's a Food Network star. Live and let live, he who is without sin...yada, yada.

A source claimed De Laurentiis, 44, and Flay, 50, "even carved their initials in a secret place on the wall."

    However, De Laurentiis' rep tells E! News exclusively that the report is "not true." ...

    Giada De Laurentiis is now officially divorced from her ex of over 11 years, Todd Thompson.

    E! News has obtained a copy of the divorce docs, which show that the world-famous chef has been ordered to pay her former husband $9,000 dollars in monthly child support.

    The papers also detail how the exes have divided their assets, including their $3.2 million dollar home in Pacific Palisades—which Thompson will get to keep.

    The estate is also said to include over $300,000 worth of furniture and artwork, which again will stay in Thompson's possession.

    Additionally, the Food Network star's ex will keep his membership at the Bel-Air Bay Club, which is located near his mansion...
