Giada De Laurentiis is moving on with a new love interest — Shane Farley, the producer of FabLife. In a new interview, De Laurentiis gushes about how fun and great life is now that she’s in love, but stops short of mentioning Farley by name.
“I had a rough year and a half, no question,” she tells E! Online of the time following her divorce. “But I think that all of us go through stuff. I checked out for a little bit. I tried to stay under the radar to protect my family and my daughter, mostly. But now I feel like I’ve turned the corner.”
But her year of recovery hasn’t kept De Laurentiis from moving on, she says. “Life is fun and great, and I have so much fun with my daughter and I have someone new!”
She offers some motivational words for those who find themselves going through a rough time. “Life is a big adventure and yes, there are curveballs that come your way. Take a minute. Breathe deeply. But if you’re healthy, you can get through anything in this life. You just can.”
De Laurentiis will spend April in Italy shooting her series Giada in Italy. She’s got a job that takes her abroad and a hot new boyfriend. Not bad!
