On the heels of confirmation about the sexuality of Jim Parsons of “The Big Bang Theory,” as we reported previously, another TV personality has come out as gay.
Food Network star Anne Burrell was outed by former "Queer Eye" star Ted Allen, the New York Post’s Page Six reports. Burrell has since confirmed that she is gay, the story reports.
Burrell, who hosts "Secrets of a Restaurant Chef" and appears on "Iron Chef America," was outed when Allen revealed on Romaine Patterson’s Sirius XM show that Burrell "is dating a woman right now," the story says.
A representative for Burrell said her relationship "is no secret in the culinary world" and added that Burrell’s partner is a "very private woman."
Her girlfriend is another James Beard Award-winning chef, the story says.
