Did you get about the Bobby Flay divorce for two seconds? Yeah, me too. But thankfully there are still more ridiculous claims being thrown about that will SPICE up your day!
Flay’s estranged wife Stephanie March claims she had a huuuuuge hand in making Flay’s restaurant and celebrity chef status successful, and continues to file legal docs to set aside their prenup, also claiming he left her pretty much nothing to live off of. So what is Stephanie claiming credit to? TMZ reports:
She claims Bobby told her she has “an amazing palate” and relied on her to taste test his recipes. She says she sampled a number of items at their home and gave thumbs up and down, which led to the finished product. She specifically cites Bobby’s NYC restaurant, Bar Americain.
We’re told in her argument to the judge she zeroes in on Bobby’s famed NYC restaurant, Bolo, (which, ironically, didn’t last). Stephanie says during a vacation to Spain she pushed him into including tapas on the menu — something she says he was against. But Stephanie says she prevailed, and the restaurant became an enormous success, earning 3 stars from the New York Times.
Stephanie says she was also heavily involved in the design and ambience of all of Bobby’s restaurants, right down to music and lighting.
Stephanie is trying to undo the prenup, which provides her with $5k a month because she complimented his “palate” and suggested tapas? Oy Veh.
Bobby remains firm on the prenup thing. What else u got, Stephanie?
