Star: January Jones & married Bobby Flay are probably having an affair

Last Friday, TMZ reported that January Jones got into a car accident close to her LA home. She hit three parked cars, and blamed the paparazzi for following her, and then for photographing her when she got out of her car. After she hit the parked cars, she handed her license to a bystander and walked the short distance to her house where she changed clothes and came back chewing gum. Many people thought that January was likely drunk when she plowed into those cars, but the cops weren’t going to open an investigation for either drunk driving or the “hit and run” nature, considering January did come back to the scene, and they wouldn’t be able to determine if she was drunk while she was driving, or if she had a drink when she went home to change.

However, a few hours after TMZ reported the accident, they came out with an update – apparently after getting into the accident, January immediately called Bobby Flay, celebrity chef and husband to actress Stephanie March. Allegedly, Flay and Jones were at the same party, and she had gotten his number because she wanted the name of his decorator or some sketchy excuse like that. Bobby Flay came to the scene of the accident and advised January. He also fed TMZ some bullsh-t excuse and claimed that he “didn’t know why” January called him. Many of us thought… well, that January and Bobby were (and are?) boning. Now Star Magazine (via Jezebel) has many more details about their alleged relationship:

Are January Jones and Bobby Flay having an affair? She called him to the scene of her car accident — though he claims that they had just met earlier that night at a party, and that he only gave her his number because he was going to help her remodel her kitchen.

However. Flay is currently married to Stephanie March of Law & Order SVU. He has a history of cheating.

Bobby claims he and January were at a party at Gordon Ramsay’s Boxwood Cafe at the London West Hollywood Hotel with a group of people, but eyewitness Tom Becktold says that January and Bobby “were sitting side by side at the bar, very close, drinking together. I definitely didn’t take them to have recently met, like Bobby is claiming. They seemed to know each other very well.”

They had two beers each, and a bottle of Veuve Clicquot champagne. They talked and flirted happily. Then she went upstairs to his room.

Another eyewitness adds: “I don’t know how long they were up there, but it definitely long enough to hook up.”

The mag really did some homework, letting us know that Stephanie March is his third wife, and he’s been touchy-feely with women while married in the past. Two nights before the crash, January was seen arriving home at 10:15 am wearing the same dress she’d worn to step out the previous evening — and looking disheveled.

I didn’t know that Stephanie March was his third wife. I went looking for any gossip about him screwing around on March or his other wives, and I couldn’t find anything that seemed credible, although I did find this article in which Flay is described as pretty much a horrible, arrogant nightmare. So, should we believe the insinuations of an affair between January and Bobby? I don’t know. I kind of believe the affair story because the cover story seems totally weird and half-cocked (if you will).

    It’s their strange cover story that gives them away. They just met yet he’s the one she calls to the scene when she needs help like a wife calling her husband? They should have thought of a better cover up it they were going to get away with it.

  2. Praise St. Angie! says:

    well, he certainly has a type, doesn’t he?

  3. RHONYC says:

    january *eyeroll* is like stephanie’s stunt double.

  4. Tess says:

    I know his first wife’s sister.

    She’s NOT a fan.

  5. Cinderella says:

    Yep, he’s basting her.

  6. Q says:

    @RHONYC – right? isn’t it strange for a dude to go out and get some strange with a woman who looks EXACTLY like his wife? I mean, it’s one thing to have a type, but this is ridiculous.

  7. Marjalane says:

    I TOLD you it was his third wife! I think the Food Network tries to keep their “celebrity chefs” (blech) images squeaky clean. They bounced Emeril when he moved on to #3. I can’t stand this arrogant creep, but the question remains- why screw around with your currant wife’s doppleganger?

  8. Jeri says:

    Whoa! Didn’t realize he was married to Stephanie. He’s not even good looking (yeah I’m shallow). Story is pretty weird.

  9. hellen says:

    “Then she went upstairs to his room”

    Did the “eyewitness” follow them? I am calling bs on this particular bit, although not on the rest of the story. I totally believe they are doing the deed.

  10. lrm says:

    he has a rep for affairs-maybe the marriage is more PR or an open deal?

    or, he’s just lame, and someone who shouldnt bother with marriage?

  11. buckley says:

    Wait, so if I hit three cars, leave the scene and come back refreshed, I can’t get charged??

    You disappoint me Betty. And he’s fug.

  12. Obvious says:

    *sigh* if this is true poor Stephanie, I kinda love her.

    And I do Like Bobby Flay-he is my favorite of the male Celeb Chefs on Food Network.

  13. e says:

    I am starting to dislike her more and more.

  14. Kat says:

    Creep. Both of them.

  15. Just a Poster says:

    No Bobby No!

    Steph is a fellow Texas Gal, and well.. we don’t play that way. Time for her to put on her shit kicker boots and clean house!

  16. KittySchmitty says:

    It makes me want to kick him in the head for cheating on ADA Cabot. Asshole.

    In all seriousness, I don’t think Flay’s marriage is open or for PR. I saw some show a long while back, about how they we’re set up by some friends and totally perfect for each other and all that jazz. I’ve heard more than once how he is an ass, so I can see this happening. And, furthermore, shame on January for messing with a married man.

    I also agree with whoever said he isn’t that attractive, because he’s not! And I’m a red-head too!

  17. Lauren says:

    It’s so obvious that they’re having an affair. Why wouldn’t she call her lawyer or a publicist after her accident? It’s the worst cover story ever.

    I hope Stephanie March divorces this creep and takes all his money. She deserves better. January Jones better land some rich guy because anyone who saw her Saturday Night Live episode can attest that this girl cannot act to save her life. She’s one canceled show away from the reality show circuit. Hate her.

  18. RastaPasta says:

    She seems to have poor judgment regarding men. And poor self esteem. She needs some character building.

  19. lucy2 says:

    Come on guys, don’t you know? After a car accident, you call the insurance company, a tow truck, and then a celebrity chef! It’s really just common sense. 😉

    I’ve always liked JJ on Mad Men, but in real life she seems to be something of a disappointment – kind of a slutty airhead. Rumors of the Piv (ick) and now this guy? Who’s married to boot?

  20. meme says:

    okey dokey it’s time to write betty draper off mad men. and bobby flay is a FAMOUS cheat. he’ll be on marriage #4 within a year

  21. smith says:

    Bobby, why you so pink?

  22. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    I have always disliked him, and he is one of the reasons I have stopped watching TFN, because his arrogant mug is always on it.

    Stephanie needs to dump him. I always felt she ws way too good for him.

  23. Electric says:

    She’s a drunk

    He’s a cheat

    They’re boning

  24. LadyV says:

    um, why does everyone tiptoe around the fact that bobby flay sounds like a shitty 12 year old with a lisp + looks like a tomato? JANUARY JONES WHAT ARE YOU THINKING? ew.

  25. aury says:

    can’t say i’m all that surprised. he DOES come across as an arrogant ass. you can tell just by watching him on food network.

  26. mln says:

    I saw him walking down the street in NYC a couple of months ago he looked like a big a-hole

  27. normade says:

    Ewwww…first the Pivert, now this?

  28. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I’ve been waiting for the time for Christina Hendricks take a cue from her wardrobe on the show (that is, to frweaking cover up the decolletage once in a forever), I hope I don’t find myself wishing that January Jones would be reminded of the anguish experienced by her character when the faithless ex didn’t even try to remain true.

    IF the gossip is based on truth and this not convincing decorating and soiree tale is a cover story (it’s often a lie if it’s super-specific), put on your Depends-because Ashton Kutcher was right.

    I think I have to go pray.

  29. Lisa S. says:

    🙁 Say it ain’t so. I love Bobby! Noooo

  30. Ellen Smith says:

    He must be packing some pretty special chorizo!

  31. Gistine says:

    He put his meat on her grill for shizzle.

  32. bellaluna says:

    Well, it’s not like that’s a surprise to us, now is it? I mean, not with that crappy cover story.

    He’s an arrogant a-hole; his wife’s too good for him; and JJ is a slutty twit.

  33. Zelda says:

    Oh can the speculation, people.
    Last time I got in an accident, I called Gordon Ramsay right away.
    This is all totally normal and not at all dodgy.

  34. tooey says:

    Didn’t she hook up with The Piv? She has a type, too: douchetastic…

  35. andrea says:

    ok, first of all, what the hell is stephanie wearing in that photo?? that dress is a mess.

    JJ does seem to have crap taste in men.

    ive seen a few episodes of flay’s shows where he has the wife on with him and it always creeped me out a bit that he would constantly talk about her looks, like that’s all he notices or something.

    he’s a great chef but he does come off like an ass.

  36. gen says:

    I don’t get it. He’s so far from attractive he’s almost ugly

  37. Feebee says:

    I like him as a chef but his stock just fell way way way down.

    And if this is true, how is Ms Jones any different from Bombshell McGee sans tats? Obviously she hasn’t gone to the media with this story but she’s outed herself and him by calling him to rescue her. Though I suppose he could have advised her over the phone… that might have been the end of the affair 😉

  38. Marcus says:

    I would be surprised if he didn’t have an “open” marriage with his wife, because from what my friend tells me, he’s not with his wife very often. I also wonder if he purposely picks women resembling his wife so if he is seen out with them, people may just assume it’s his wife? Just speculating…

  39. electric says:

    I can’t believe I’m commenting on this AGAIN, but I have to say their bullshiz story about just meeting is pure crap. If they really didn’t know each other well and she called after a car crash, he would have a) not answered or b) said, sure I can help. What’s the number of your boyfriend/family member/publicist/friend/someone you actually know. No celeb would get involved in that bizniz with someone they didn’t really know. BONING!

  40. Grumpy Oldguy says:

    She’s like that character on Star Trek…A-whorah!! and the guy has man-tits

  41. original kate says:

    has in hell is bobby flay getting all these lovely chickies? he looks like the lucky charms leprechaun and acts like a jackass.

  42. RastaPasta says:

    Still, though… I hope Betty stays on Mad Men. I love her character. She totally represents so many women from that era. Also love her hair and fashion!!

  43. ctkat says:

    I believe it only because of the cover story, and the huge holes in it.
    I think that they were meeting up that evening for a rendezvous, and that’s why January called him after her accident- basically to let him know that she wasn’t going to make it to their meet up.

    Let’s all put ourselves in either of their places: If you get into an accident, and are a little scared and unsure what to do, and need to call someone, why would you call a man you don’t know, whose number you have due to a renovation project? YOU WOULDN’T!
    And if you are married, and receive a call from a woman you just met, who gets your number because she’s doing a renovation project (which doesn’t make sense as a stand alone excuse either), and said woman has just been in an accident where nobody is hurt, why would you leave a party and drive over to support her? YOU WOULDN’T!

  44. buckley says:

    right..he’s a chef not a decorator.

  45. buell says:

    I can not believe the police couldn’t find one single thing to charge her with. Idiots!

  46. anon says:

    chefs on FN do decorate kitchens, still I would agree with buckley about the boning, such a bad lie 🙂

  47. Miss says:

    Disgusting. On one hand you’ve got a drunk driver and a husband stealer. On the other, a cheater and a person who condones drunk driving. Could it get worse? They are gross.

  48. Kim says:

    Does he have a type or what? The wife and January look like same person. January Jones already has a slutty reputation and she has only been “famous” Since on Mad Men/not very long. She is committing career suicide.

  49. Divasbaby says:

    AFFAIR. She panicked. Whatev. I work in the entertainment industry, and though I don’t know him personally, I know other chefs who know him very well (and not from The Food Network but for his restaurants). When he was about to be married to Stephanie March he was, ehem, indiscreet, at several major food festivals in the US. His reputation in the restaurant world is as bad as Tiger Woods. He’s a DOG. Which is fine, but stop getting married and stop sleeping with the same woman over and over. She’s a dead ringer for his wife.

  50. Orbit says:

    Stephanie and January need to throw down. *writing diagram on dry board*

  51. DeepThought says:

    It’s not the look that Bobby goes for. He only hooks up with women with months in their names. Wait till you see February and April.

  52. MooCow says:

    Yah, Why was she hanging out with a dude she just met without any mutual friends (if there was a mutual friend she would have called them not him!).

    Bad, bad cover story guys.
    I still love Betty though.

    Also, stick his head on a midgets body and you’d have a Christmas Elf! 😀 I like the tomato description though, hehehe.

  53. Mrs. Darcy says:

    I love her in Mad Men but she seriously seems even dumber than Betty! Her taste in men is dreadful, and leaving the scene of an accident, regardless of there being no one injured, is just not very bright. Surprised she didn’t get in trouble for that, must be different rules in L.A.

  54. N.D. says:

    I can understand her panicing and calling him for help but why did he come to the scene? Knowing that there are paps and he will be photographed? Doesn’t make sense at all. Either he’s about to divorce ayway and doesn’t care if their affair is outed (doesn’t look like that from their comments – cover story and all) or he’s so madly in love he’d do anything she says without thinking twice about it.

  55. celebrity says:

    Creep. Both of them.

  56. anna says:

    How does a guy as ugly as him get these beautiful women?

  57. SammyHammy says:

    I would never want to be someone’s THIRD wife. Yes, I know it can work, but usually if there are two ex’s running around, that means there are issues. It’s a shame. Stephanie deserves much better (as does every woman).

    I hope she dumps his cheating butt and finds a REAL man.

  58. Deanne says:

    It must be true if Star magazine says so.

  59. PK says:

    he is an arrogant tool who has man breasts

  60. Victoria says:

    With so many men in Hollywood gay – the hetro men get all the action.

    He might be ugly but he must have a lot of tough sex appeal and the equipment to deliver.

    This kind of information gets around.

  61. A. says:

    Is anyone else bothered by the fact that he looks like he’s had a face transplant? There’s this weird ring on his forehead that makes it look like the rest of his face is an add-on. It creeps me out.

    Also, totally cheating. No question about it.

  62. judy says:

    The pic here of him looks like the face on my mad mags when I was 12! Alfred E Newman was the person’s name!!!LOL Flay is ugly!

  63. Queen Victoria says:

    Someone please tell me what all the fuss is about? I’m sure his beautiful wife could care less…Bobby Flay strongly resembles Howdy Doody and it doesn’t appear that she would have any trouble getting a man that isn’t missing a cromizone

  64. Katy(: says:

    I’m like in love with Stephanie. She should totally dump his ass

  65. Foxy boss says:

    Is it just me or does flay look like a cave man??
    Stephanie can do much better. I’m sure that January jones will be number 4 soon..

  66. veronica fester says:

    everyone has his/her opinion,if tru they will reap what they sow,sad to mess with peoples feelings.thats a big no no.dont insult bobby he is cute,and ya’ll jealous

  67. deana says:

    oh, god, that crazy red headed ginger! so damn ugly and i heard he has bad breath and is a total ass!
    she can have him!
