Not happening. Giada De Laurentiis revealed to Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen on Thursday, Nov. 5, that she’d never consider hooking up with Bobby Flay.

“We do get together on Food Network Star,” the celeb chef, 45, joked. “Well, we’re very good friends. We’ve worked for many years together, but I don’t think that’s ever going to happen because I’m smarter than that.”
