Chef and TV personality Giada De Laurentiis and producer Shane Farley took their relationship public Friday night as they hung out in the VIP tent and strolled through the crowds at the Burger Bash beach party during the South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami.

“They were very much a couple, rarely leaving each other’s side for more than a few minutes,” a source tells PEOPLE. “They’re very cute together.”

Besides laughing, talking to Burger Bash host Rachael Ray—who celebrated her 10th year hosting the burger showdown at the Florida festival—and their other foodie friends, the couple, who revealed they were dating last November, chatted and shared a burger at one of the many chef stations.

“They were having a great time, holding hands and looking at each other constantly,” says another source. “They loved the music and looked really happy to be together.”

De Laurentiis, 45, divorced her husband Todd Thompson, a fashion designer, last September after 11 years of marriage. They have one daughter, Jade, 7.

Farley, executive producer of the recently-cancelled FABLife with Chrissy Teigen and Tyra Banks, filed for divorce from wife Jennifer Giamo, a personal trainer, last March, according to reports.

Two years ago, Farley produced a short-lived show starring De Laurentiis and chef Bobby Flay. He has also produced shows for Rachael Ray and Tony Danza.

“Shane knows a lot of people in the food world since he worked on these shows, so he has friends [at the festival],” says the source. “They were running into people they both know, and seemed very happy to be here together.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

I wonder what happened between her and Todd? Maybe he wasn’t exciting enough for her..

Rachel Ray’s face has so much botox, she looks like she could explode.

@Gina, why assume it was Todd’s fault? People always say he seemed boring. You do realize you are judging a man based on a two minute cameo on a food show right? Did people expect him to skydive into the scene and taste what she made him? Give the man a break. I thought he seemed sweet & loving.

Seriously? on

Is that a real question, Gina? If so, you have some research to do. Do a Google search on Giada and why she’s referred to as the ‘Queen of BJs’.

What a phony witch Giada is….I can’t stand that phony smile she has plastered on her face. What happened to boyfriend Bobby Flay?Her ex should be happy he’s done with her.

ELC on

What’s with Rachel Ray….her face is so stiff that she looks uncomfortable smiling. Giada on the other hand has the same irritating smile plastered over her face. Can’t stand that one. Rachel looks like she dropped some pounds though, and she looks better.

Laura on

Yikes! She should have kept her fashion designer husband. Homegirl seriously needs to lose that tacky denim jacket.

laura Blair on

You can also look at the yards per throw but that’s partially addressed in the total yardage stat above. lists, with the pages presented in different orders. A large transport ship, the Envoy can car 20 units at a time.

The Leveler itself is slow, however, and not particularly durable. Rocket League will launch on Xbox One this coming Wednesday, Feb. This leaves even the most deadly ground formation helpless in the face of heavily armored and well armed tactical aircraft.
