Could Chelsea Handler and Bobby Flay be the perfect Hollywood pairing?
The 51-year-old celebrity chef and the 40-year-old comedian were spotted arriving together and sharing an intimate dinner at Blue Plate Oysterette in Santa Monica, Calif. on Jan. 27. According to onlookers, the "flirty" pair only had eyes for each other. "It looked like a date," a source revealed to Page Six, adding that they had sat at a private corner table in the rear of the restaurant.
In fact, Handler had revealed earlier that day during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that she was going to be going on her first date with a famous guy that night. "A friend set us up," Handler admitted. "I've never met him but I know of him ... You'd know him."
As Radar reported, Flay is fresh off of a nasty divorce from ex-wife Stephanie March, while Handler is in the midst of a battle with her former bestie/underling Heather McDonald, making for plenty of ice-breaking dinner conversation.
