Chef-restaurateur and TV personality Bobby Flay and his wife of 10 years, former "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" star Stephanie March, reportedly separated three weeks ago and are planning to divorce.
People magazine said Thursday it had confirmed a report on TMZ.com that Flay, 50, a star of "Iron Chef America" and host of numerous Food Network cooking shows over the years, and March, 40, officially separated in March. TMZ additionally said Flay had moved out of the couple's New York City home.
The two were married Feb. 20, 2005, at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Manhattan. This was March's first marriage and Flay's third. He was married in May 1991 to fellow celebrity chef Debra Ponzek, divorcing two years later. In October 1995, he married Kate Connelly after meeting her when he was a guest on the Food Network show "Robin Leach Talking Food," which she co-hosted. The two had a daughter, Sophie, and later divorced.
Flay's local restaurant locations include two Bobby's Burger Palaces on Long Island, at the Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove, and the Roosevelt Field mall in Garden City.
