On the last episode of Beat-Off Bobby Flay, famous smug-faced chef Bobby Flay had gone on a date with the alcohol industry’s favorite human, Chelsea Handler. No one can confirm whether said date made it to the beat-off Bobby Flay stage (Chelsea could be the stealthy hand job-under-the-table type, you don’t know). But it definitely isn’t going to make it to the flying-a-CHEATER-banner stage, because Page Six is saying Bobby has moved on to someone else.
Sources say 51-year-old Bobby Flay is currently dating 30-year-old Heléne Yorke, aka Jane Martin from Masters of Sex (or Olive from Bullets Over Broadway the Musical and Evelyn in America Psycho the Musical, if that’s more your thing). Bobby and Heléne – whose name totally makes me want to reach for a bottle of Salon Selectives – apparently met each other back in December at a Knicks game. Then on Sunday, they sort of made it official-ish by going to the New York premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, a Food Network rep told Page Six that Bobby isn’t stuffing his chorizo into Heléne’s roasted poblano pepper, and that they’re just friends.
I know that the Food Network wants us to believe that Bobby and Heléne are just friends, but I’m not so sure about that. First of all, we all know what happens when Bobby tries to be “just friends” with single blonde actress types. Second, I don’t remember reading anything the next day about a horny Heléne being escorted out of the Batman v Superman premiere by security. And that definitely would have happened if Heléne wasn’t there with a date-date, since we all know that ladies can’t resist hitting on Henry Cavill.
