Despite what some haters may think, there is life after Bobby Flay. Less than a year after Stephanie March and Flay finalized their divorce, she’s going public with a new relationship to hedge fund manager Daniel Benton. March and Benton attended their first official outing as a couple at the Whitney Museum Gala in NYC on Tuesday night.
According to the Daily Mail, March and Benton aren’t quite in the honeymoon phase: they’ve secretly been dating for six months. He’s a fellow divorcé who, more importantly, owns a 12-room, $39 million penthouse on Central Park. The apartment is reportedly in “triple-mint” condition. Kudos to Benton and, frankly, to March.
The revelation comes just a few weeks after Flay and Broadway actress Helene Yorke have gotten very publicly cozy on social media. Yorke, who is currently in American Psycho, has been alluding to their relationship on Instagram. She captioned a breakfast photo, “NAILED my soft boil this morning. Take THAT fancy pants!” Bobby Flay commented back, “I’m gonna say.. spot on! But can you sing and dance? #americanpsycho.”
The couple split after 10 years of marriage and a difficult divorce that ended in March fighting for $5,000 a month in alimony payments from Flay. Maybe March can save some of the money she’s spending on rent and move into one of her new boyfriend’s 12 rooms.
