Because she didn't give a name, the Food Network star opened herself up to a whirlwind of speculation, which led some people to think Bobby Flay might be her potential new suitor. The chefs have been rumored to be an item in the past after they both got divorced at roughly the same time, but both parties denied the reports.
Williams mentioned Flay in her questioning, leading De Laurentiis to joke that she has been linked to "anybody I laid eyes on even crossing the street." Andy Cohen also addressed the potential kitchen couple on Watch What Happens Live Thursday. He informed her that fans want them to get together because of their "great chemistry," but she didn't seem to be into the idea.
"We do get together on Food Network Star," she 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."
