Every year, the Food Network seems to get a wealth of new talent starting on TV, and we can’t get enough of the delicious-looking cuisine and food tips. There are some stars, however, who never seem to go out of style — and Bobby Flay is one of them. He’s had success with competition shows, being an Iron Chef, and sharing his southwestern flair. We’ve also learned a lot about his past relationships over the years, and it seems he’s found love again following three unsuccessful marriages.
Here’s what we know about his current girlfriend, Helene Yorke, and why fans seem to think they may marry in the future.
Bobby met Helene York while at a basketball game
Helene York is most notable for her work as an actress on Masters of Sex and Quantico. While she may not be a huge Hollywood star, she’s made a name for herself on smaller screens over the years — and she certainly caught Bobby’s attention when they first saw each other.
People reports Bobby brought Helene and chef Alex Guarnaschelli on to an episode of Beat Bobby Flay as guest judges in 2017, and that’s when audiences first learned how the couple first met. As he said on the show, “So I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Last season I went to a Knick game and I met Helene. Now we kind of date.” When Alex asked whether they instantly “hit it off” upon first meeting, Helene verified that this was the case. By the time the show aired, the two of them had been dating for over a year.
They were in a relationship less than a year following Bobby’s third divorce
Bobby’s no stranger to romance, as he’s been married three times and has reportedly courted many other women in the entertainment business. But he did seem to fall out of favor with some fans when it was revealed that he began dating Helene less than a year after his divorce settlement with Stephanie March, Fox News reports.
Out of all three of Bobby’s marriages, his one with Stephanie seemed to cause the biggest splash. Delish notes the chef landed in hot water when reports revealed he skipped out on his 10th anniversary with Stephanie, and he also allegedly wasn’t there for her when she needed surgery for a burst appendix. Not only that, but affair rumors also circulated Bobby, as Stephanie’s friend blamed his alleged three-year affair with a cooking assistant for the split. He was also accused of cheating with other women, one of whom was January Jones.
Either way, it seems Helene was not put off by the scandal, as at one point she even created an Instagram account just to record her and Bobby’s cooking ventures.
Will Helene and Bobby marry? Some fans think so
We haven’t had many recent updates from Helene and Bobby, so fans are still assuming the two are thick as thieves while keeping their relationship quietly out of the public eye. That hasn’t stopped speculation, though. They’ve still been spotted out and about holding hands and eating dinner from time to time. And Daily Mail Online reports Bobby’s said one of his favorite things about Helene is her willingness to learn how to cook and excitement for sharing meals.
Back in December 2017, Helene’s photo on Instagram also sparked possible engagement rumors. She posted a photo of her wearing an ill-fitted wedding ring. The caption read, “Tried on Brooke’s wedding ring last night. Andy and I are VERY disappointed by the size of my sausage fingers.” While the photo was funny, fans had a feeling this may be a hint she and Bobby were going to tie the knot.
So far, we haven’t heard any news of an engagement between the two of them. But we wouldn’t be surprised if Bobby chooses to walk down the aisle a fourth time.
