Bobby Flay gets Walk of Fame star as ‘CHEATER’ banner flies overhead


I saw these photos yesterday and I thought, “Eh, I’m not going to cover it.” Bobby Flay was getting his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, because yes, they give stars to celebrity chefs now. I mean, I could see giving a star to someone like Wolfgang Puck, who actually has a close association with all things Hollywood. But Bobby Flay? Eh. It doesn’t matter, celebrities pay for these stars.

So why am I covering these photos? It’s because someone spent some money to publicly slam Flay at his big event. In the middle of his Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, a perfectly timed plane flew overhead with a banner that read “CHEATER.” Hahahaha. I’m including some photos below.

Is this a fair assessment by the plane? Did Flay’s estranged wife Stephanie March organize this? Or was it someone else, like… January Jones? Last week, In Touch Weekly got their hands on March and Flay’s court papers, and March explicitly accused Flay of having a full-on affair with January in 2010. March also accused Flay of having at least two other affairs that she knew about, including a years-long affair with his food stylist. For what it’s worth, Flay has denied everything and he’s claimed that March is just trying to malign him to get their prenup thrown out.

    Wow. That’s some next level dedication to dragging your ex.

  3. Jess says:

    Bahahahaha!!!! This is awesome and exactly what he deserves. Also, he’s really not an attractive man, at all.

  4. SamiHami says:

    Sometimes I have to shake my head that I live in a world where “food stylist” is an actual thing…

    • Snazzy says:

      Hahaha so so true

    • Sugar says:

      Food styling is actually a difficult job and it’s not a joke job, either. Food stylists make food look appealing for print or TV. I’ve seen food stylists at work and it’s fascinating how much effort goes into making food that has been sitting on set for hours look appetizing.

      • Lady D says:

        Years ago (I hate that I can say that now) I read an article about a woman whose parents owned a large food stylist company. Her parents were giving her their company, but she had to complete the schooling first. Her course was 4 freaking years long. I was staggered to learn it took that long to make food look good in a magazine. Until that point, I had always assumed you just took a picture.

    • wow says:


      Hey some people make a pretty good living off of being stylist of any kind (food, props, hair, clothes) ;)

  5. GPSB says:

    Pardon my inelegance but HAHAHAHAHA.

  6. Anaya says:

    I’m giving a standing ovation to whoever set that up!! 😆

    • wow says:

      I agree, it IS rather brilliant. However, it also shows that someone is still hurt and bitter. The wife or the mistress(es)? Questions, questions…

  7. JudyK says:

    Kinda love this. Serves two purposes…revenge and forever robbing him of his special day in the spotlight.

  8. Brin says:

    Love it.

  9. Val Cherry says:

    The only thing missing on that banner: “#GetMoneyBitch”. But still very good, kuddos to Stephanie!

  10. BengalCat2000 says:

    That’s so terrible and I like to think I’m above such things, but I lol’d.

    • SleepyJane says:

      Same. Who knew a divorce without children involved could be so entertaining? It’s reminiscent of high school breakups when everyone had an opinion and loved to sit back and watch the pettiness…oh wait. I guess not much has changed ☺.

    • Illyra says:

      I lol’d too

  11. tracking says:

    Ok, it’s ridiculous and petty, but did make me laugh!

  12. Barrett says:

    If it’s her kinda childish.

  13. Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

    They must’ve really loved him to be so hurt by his betrayal.

  14. When it comes to unfaithful spouses, the high road is overrated. Kudos to whoever did this!

  15. renee28 says:

    It’s funny but incredibly petty and childish. Hopefully, she’s not responsible for it.

  16. PunkyMomma says:

    Reminds me of the sky writing “Surrender, Dorothy” by the Wicked Witch of the West, so I’m betting is March’s doing.

  17. Nashville girl says:

    I originally misread the headline as “walk of shame.”

    • BW says:

      Me, too!

      Since nobody is awarded a star, it kind of is a walk of shame now. Anyone can buy a star. You just have to plunk down enough money.

  18. MonicaQ says:

    Pour some unnecessary beer on that burn, Bobby.

  19. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    My ex cheated on me, and I tried to handle it with dignity. (Translation – damn! Wish I’d thought of that!) lol

  20. Tracy says:

    Apparently, revenge is a dish best served at 15,000 feet.

  21. snowflake says:

    wow, very original.

  22. Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

    She’ll deface the star next.

  23. bella says:

    wonder if the divorce court judge will be interested in nailing down who pulled this stunt.

    flay must have been cringing…
    but, hey, he deserved it.

    his assistant who has been reported to have had a 3-yr-long affair with flay was there along with his entire “B” team…and his 2nd wife, who he also credited for doing a great job bringing up their daughter…and his parents.

    strange that his assistant is still in her job and present with his family if it’s true that he cheated with her…

  24. Beaner says:

    Was he “in the running” as a possible j.jones baby daddy?

    • bella says:

      yes, he is in the running as father of JJ’s son.
      i’ve believed from day 1 that flay is the father.
      and i wonder if it’s raised march’s divorce papers.
      i’d imagine that JJ would make her son’s paternity known now if what was holding her back from doing so all these years was because flay was still married.
      and i wonder, too, if the courts will require the child to undergo a paternity test as the divorce plays out if march has raised the issue.

    • doofus says:

      I believe he was initially, but as the child has gotten older, a LOT of people think he looks like Matthew Vaughn (married to Claudia Schiffer) who directed Jones in XMen First Class.

      • Cali says:

        I think the kid is a dead ringer for Jason Sudeikis. there was even a pic of Jason’s new son with Olivia recently that really struck me because he looked SO much like JJ’s son Xander.

      • bella says:

        it’s funny.
        many say the boy looks like vaughn or sudeikis.
        i think he looks EXACTLY like bobby flay.

      • (Original, not CDAN) Violet says:

        I don’t think it’s Jason, because he was the only one of the possible baby daddies — Claudia Schiffer’s husband, Ashton Kutcher (married to Demi Moore when the kid was conceived), Bobby Flay (his estranged wife has gone on the record with her claims that he cheated on her with January Jones) — not married, so there wouldn’t have been a reason to be secretive.

        The kid looks a lot like Matthew Vaughn’s other children, IMO. Then again, who knows. January Jones seems to have slept with most of the married men in Hollywood, so the possibilities are endless.

    • PHD gossip says:

      for sure! there are about 5 serious candidates for baby daddy & he is in the top three with Matthew Vaughn and Jason Sudekis.

  25. MediaMaven says:

    *slow clap*

  26. meme says:

    Like Bobby’s the first person with a star on the walk of fame that’s a cheater. People in Hollywood cheat all the time. Stephanie is the one who looks bad IMHO; she signed the prenup so she needs to be quiet and deal with it.

  27. Nebby says:

    Well that’s childish.

  28. Ann says:

    Ugh, he is SO unattractive. I can’t believe he found volunteers to sleep with him. Astonishing.

  29. Cali says:

    I did a phone interview with him a few years ago. Arrogance x1000.

    I hope this can’t be traced back to his wife or it’ll hurt her in the long run. But it’s hilarious and awesome.

  30. sweetpea says:

    well – kind of low but wow – who hasn’t wanted to do something like that at some point in their lives but usually never act on it – so this banner and how it is playing out in the press has got to be super satisfying to someone.

  31. kri says:

    HAHAHAHAAHAHA!!! Oh, yesss. I don’t care if it is childish. It’s not a lie. I hope she gets her share. But I was just thinking..what if he did it to make her look bad? Or is his ego too big for that kind of strategy? Just thinking in terms of who would really benefit from that in the divorce proceedings. Maybe January did it. Or maybe the sous chef? Oh, I know. Colonel Mustard in the kitchen. GUILTY.

  32. Jenna says:

    I’d really really like to think I would be above such things but….

    I’ve dealt with bad breakups and something like this woulda felt kinda good if I had the cash to do it. (Although with as much as something like this costs and her being kept to ‘only’ the, what is it, $5,000 a month, this seems like she just might have blew her week’s grocery money for a moment of spiking the ball at her ex, if she did it.)

  33. FWIW says:

    Love this! The thing is he has had many affairs while married so it could have been any ex that did this. I would have loved 4 planes with banners … that would have been a great fireworks display. Cheater Cheater Cheater Cheater!

    I know celebrities pay for having a star but Bobby Flay getting one is ridiculous.

  34. Ash says:

    For years, he’s had a reputation for being a womanizer, so I fail to see the humor here. The person responsible isn’t revealing anything that someone with half a functioning brain didn’t already know about Flay.

    Stephanie married him fully aware of his reputation. Plenty of women think they’ll be the one who changes the serial cheater.

    Eh. Move on. He’s a jerk.

  35. Corrie says:

    Babe, i have actual tears – this is too funny.

  36. ana says:

    I don’t care if he’s the world’s biggest douche, his wife willingly signed that pre-nup. She needs to stop being so childish and just move on with her life. And if she wants more money, how about getting a job.

  37. feebee says:

    Proof that they’ll give just about anybody a star on the walk these days.

    As for the banner….. well….. can’t fault it. If that’s the worst revenge he gets dealt then he’ll have gotten off easy.

  38. Tiffany says:

    No bodily harm done, just a bit of embarrassment. People are mentioning Stephanie but what about Glada’s husband. He has the bank to do something like this and I told believe she and Flay were and still boning.
