Anne Burrell Is A Proud Food Network Star, That Happens To Be Gay

Anne Burrell

Hey guuuurl!

Fancy food isn't the only thing Food Network star Anne Burrell likes to munch on!

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.”

We get it!

Her sexuality wasn't ever under wraps, but she likes to keep her personal life is.

We have nothing but love an support for Anne, and her secret lady friend!

    WOW, Perez! That was so disrespectful to say that food isn't the only thing she like to 'munch on'. I don't think you need to be so nasty about this. We love Anne and I know she is such a great person, she does not need you using funny little jokes to make a point.

    You're still the same nasty old douchebag queen you always were, you haven't changed a bit. Gays hate you more than straights. You will always be alone and unloved, dating and vacationing with Momma.

    Such a bottomfeeder comment. Comments like this reinforces stereotypes.

    I like and admire Burrell; she is one hell of a chef, and has a great on-camera persona. For you to be so disgusting — food isn't the only thing she likes to munch on — and so disrespectful is just sickening. This is why the gays hate you more than the heterosexuals. Anne Burrell is SO MUCH MORE than a homosexual, and it seems clear that her own focus is on her talents as a chef, not on her genitals. Thus you have proven once again how ignorant you are and why so few can stand you. You are a pitiful asshole who really needs to get some counseling. You have many issues that need to be addressed.

    I love Chef Burrell. She is such a talented woman.

    Ive been reading your blog for years.. this is the first comment I have ever left. I dont know this cook, or the show. I do not live in the USA. However, your comment about what she likes to munch on is so disrespectful that I feel I have to vent somehow. I am not gay, or easily offended, or make a big deal about anything. But given the momentum of progress the world is going through at the moment, regarding free expression of sexuality, a comment like this is specially insulting. Perez, I imagine you must have a team writing for you, so you cannot control everything that is published. If that is the case, it is still not good enough of an excuse. Keep it together because your positive energy has obviously been influential in this matter.

    No secret there. She was on "Worst Cook In America" w/Bobby Flay (think she was on that "food truck show" also)…don't know if was her comments, but pretty clear she was gay. She's a great personality; don't know if she has her own show, but she's great.

    shut up ABOUT FOOD now i cant stop eating… all this food talk…

    thats not all she likes to munch LOLOL HAHAH…

    PLEASE SHUT UP ABOUT FOOD!!



  9. 9

    Let's see ass kissing perezpossemember77 defend you now, lmao.

    yeah, the other day Perez was commenting about an African-American in here -forgot what the stroy was about BUT he typed out out like HE was black as in stereotyping blacks as ALL hip-hop talk with words like "dat" "dis". The comments section was turned off. Imagine a straight person doing that about a gay guy and he'd of had his panties in a bunch in nano seconds- Again what a hipocrite

    Ok, rude comment with the "munching" thing. Have a little class.

    I'm not a fan of her. She is so loud and kind of annoying; plus she seems a little mean to contestants she works with on Worst Cooks In America. I watch Food Network all the time tho and I'm not surprised she is gay. Food Network has a lot of chefs on there that are gay… I miss Cat Cora on Iron Chef America. Anyway, I wish Anne well on her relationship!

    Re: perez posse member 777 – Lmao, of course you'd find that comment funny. So it's ok with you if I call Hilton a feggot? lmaooooo. Ha ha ha ha, that's funny.



  13. 13

    Really? ? ? What a bombshell… O M G. Please, you would have to be Helen Kellar to not have figured that one out. That comment about munching however, PEREZ, YOU NEED TO POST AN APOLOGY. That was out of line and really disrespectful.



  14. 14

    Jesus Perez, that was completely uncalled for.



  15. 15

    I'm gay and I found the munching comment hilarious… Im still laughing… life wouldnt be fun without crude comments here and there… lol



  16. 16

    Re: Jennylynnielynn – Maybe it's funny but if a straight had said it, Hilton would be all over them, playing the homophobe card.



  17. 17

    Re: Jennylynnielynn
    Perez has a double standard -if you know his history :) Again he thinks he ONLY can post crude comments of other gays. He is just as guilty and lives in a bubble.



  18. 18

    to be fair if a straight person said it i would still think its funny… my straight family always make jokes like that and it makes me laugh hard… i think everyone is a bit too uptight =)



  19. 19

    "MUNCH ON" !!??, god you're a pig, i guess then you should say about yourself that
    " cigars aren't the only long ,thick, black thing the he likes to suck on."" lousy piece of shit can't even respect the rest of the gay community. You must really HATE YOURSELF.

    That "munching" comment was really tasteless.

  21. whoa now says – reply to this

    I like her, she is a great cook. I love that women are finally coming out…we know you are gay already, however it helps perhaps in the more closed minded segments where people think all people are straight…More coming out will hopefully show everyone that gays and lesbians are everywhere…just like straights….and to all the haters here…seriously, get help. Some of you are nothing but nasty, insecure bullies. Just shows how unhappy you are with yourself…nothing more…

    Who new being a carpet muncher was so fattening?

    Re: Lady Who? – Your need to attack and lay in wait is scary…I am not a fan of Perez, per se…yup, he is annoying…. However, I still read his blog and do not feel the need to unleash holy hell on him. What is wrong with you? What is not right with your own life that you need to target him…or GAGA…? you bully both….everyone knows that bullies are ill, so enough of your cruel words. Says more about you than anyone you are targeting. Now then, I love Anne and love that she is gay and out….good for her!!!

  24. just cause says – reply to this

    Re: hugh jorgen – ugh…what an ignorant person you are….straight men are carpet munchers too…why do lesbians get ridiculed because of it??? What a sick, mean, hateful world some of you live in…just stop already. Such a double standard.

  25. but wait says – reply to this


    25

    But yeah, Perez…not cool with the "munching" comment….straight men are never teased about this, but gay women are?? Stupid double standard and hateful…a bit anti-woman too…don't be such a queen, please.



  26. 26

    Re: yes – Lmao, karma's a bitch dumbass, Hilton is just getting what he deserves. And my life is fine, I have everything I need so you can save the pseudo-psychoanalysis for yourself. Your look the other way attitude with Hilton says a lot about you. Get help, you're ill.



  27. 27

    As a member of the LGBT community, I cannot believe YOU of all people would say something so sexist and stereotypical! We all already know you believe bisexuality doesn't exist (thanks, by the way) and now I see you truly hate women..Even Lesbians. Why do you feel the need to degrade women in every post? I believe it's the LgBT community, not just the gay man community. Not to mention the venom you spew to straight women! You are a walking stereotype. I'm not a doctor yet, but seriously; it is in my medical opinion you seek help immediately.

  28. WAHHHHHHHH! says – reply to this


    28

    she's never hid that she was gay, so to say she was outed is just freaking stupid and who the eff cares anyway, why do you always makes such a big effing deal about someone being gay??? Its like they just suddenly are a better human being to you if they are gay….you're just fucking stupid! Im starting to think you just hate straight people….you're the dam bigot!



  29. 29

    I can't believe that a homosexual would make such an ignorant comment (the munch thing.) Don't you get that there is a segment of the population that think that homosexuality is only about sex…and you just encouraged that stereotype, Perez.



  30. 30

    Prez, I enjoy you emails,but sometiomes you are an ASS HOLE!!! Ann Burrell is an exceptional chef. Shame on you!!!

    !



  31. 31

    Perez you need to apologize. First someone out's her when she kept it it personal and now your comment. No wonder why people stay in the closet. Your a BULLY!



  32. 32

    You are a crude asshole, why did you have to add the munch comment? You can't teach a person class……….and you have no class Perz!



  33. 33

    Re: yes – ty well said



  34. 34

    Re: perez posse member 777 – LOL says one false account to the other…you people are fucking PATHETIC! or should I say PEREZ AND HIS STOOGES!



  35. 35

    I'm disappointed that you would make an off-color statement regarding this. Chef Anne, and others, don't deserve disrespect.
