On a recent taping of SiriusXM’s Derek and Romaine Show , host Romaine Patterson was chewing the fat with Ted Allen, host of Food Network’s Chopped, when Allen spilled that his FN colleague Anne Burrell (Secrets of a Restaurant Chef) was in a relationship with a woman.
At one point in their chat, Patterson dished “I have the biggest crush on [Anne]—whether she is a lesbian or not, she’s my girl!”
Allen saucily replied, “I’m not going to put a label on Anne, but she is dating a woman right now.” The former Queer Eye star explained he’d recently met Anne’s new ladyfriend, who works at the Chicago eatery Avec. “She was really cool—you’ve got some competition.”
We hear the chemistry is so hot she sets Anne’s hair on end.
The full interview airs Monday, May 21 at 9:30pm on SiriusXM OutQ 108.
