Ann was pushed out of the closest — on a national level — by fellow spiky-haired foodie Ted Allen.
The Chopped host accidentally "outed" Ann in a radio interview, by saying:
“I am not going to put a label on Anne, but she is dating a woman right now.”In response, Burrell had her rep say:
“Anne doesn’t feel she was outed. She has made no secret of her relationship. Her significant other is a very private woman. They have been together for a couple of years and spend a lot of time together. It is no secret in the culinary world.”
