The two-time Emmy Award winner Shane Farley has made a name for himself as a top-notch Hollywood producer. Shane is the producer behind the syndicated daytime talk show by the comedian and media personality Steve Harvey which ran for five seasons from September 2012 to July 2017. He is also noted for producing the food/cooking program, The Rachael Ray Show – another syndicated broadcast hosted by the renowned chef and Food Network star, Rachael Domenica Ray since September 2006.
In recent years, Shane has been on the news for another reason altogether: His obvious romance with the renowned chef and restaurant chain owner Giada De Laurentiis. In this post, therefore, you will be treated to all the facts you may need to know about the award-winning producer including the details of his recent relationship with De Laurentiis.
Who Is Shane Farley?
As a Hollywood professional, Shane Farley is no doubt a public figure. Yet, he has managed to keep much information about his life totally to himself. Thus, there is virtually no detail of his early life available except that he was born in 1972. Thus, as we are still digging for details concerning his exact birth date, place of birth, parental background and genealogy, education history, and more, let us get busy with what we already know about the producer.
As far as records go, Farley’s production career took off with The Keenen Ivory Wayans Show – a late night syndicated TV talk show that aired between August 1997 and March 1998. The program featured the actor, comedian and filmmaker, Keenen Ivory Wayans and his all-ladies band, ‘Ladies of the Night’. After The Keenen Ivory Wayans Show was canceled in March 1998 as already hinted, Shane Farley landed his next production job in a couple of months. It involved producing The Magic Hour, a TV talk show hosted by the famous basketball professional Earvin Johnson Jr (popularly known as ‘Magic Johnson’). Again, it was a brief gig that lasted only from June to September 1998.
After this rather erratic start to his career, Shane was set on his path to production stardom, producing many highly rated programs, many of the contracts lasting for years. For instance, as already mentioned, he produced The Rachel Ray Show from 2006 to 2011. Before that, he had started work on the daytime variety talk show, The Tony Danza Show, in 2004 and which terminated in 2006. The show featured the Italian-American actor, comedian, singer and TV personality Antonio Salvatore Iadanza (popularly known as Tony Danza).
Production-wise, Shane Farley has also been behind other important screen projects like The Big Morning Buzz Live (VH1, 2011 to 2015), Big Evening Buzz with Carrie Keagan (VH1 since 2012), The Steve Harvey Show (5 seasons, 920 episodes, syndicated between 2012 and 2017), The Gossip Table (VH1, 2013 to 2015), and FABLife (2015 to 2016). He probably even has more to his credit than what has been mentioned above.
Relationship With Giada De Laurentiis
Shane Farley has been dating the celebrity chef, Food Network star and restaurant chain owner Giada De Laurentiis since late 2015. Before the much talked about relationship began, both Shane and Giada had been married to some other people. Shane had been married to a New-York-based personal trainer Jennifer Giamo for a decade and a half before they were separated in 2015. Their relationship did not produce any child. As for Giada, she had been married to fashion designer Todd Thompson. The relationship lasted from May 2003 to July 2013 and produced a daughter named Jade.
The love between Shayne and Giada started as a professional relationship in 2013. Giada had just been separated from her ex, but Shane was still married to Giamo then. Although Shane had spent about 6 years producing a food-related program with Giada’s fellow celebrity chef Rachel Ray, their paths never crossed then – not until he was hired to produce a program featuring Giada in 2013. The program was never aired, but Giada ended up making a lasting impression on Shane as he himself would later testify.
Eventually, after Shane Farley’s marriage with Giamo ended in 2015, Farley began to run into Giada every once in a while. Then, on a certain day in late 2015, Shane proposed a drink to Giada and that was it: they began a hot romance as the public has come to be aware of.
There is no talk of the relationship transforming to marriage soon. But the duo is obviously having good times together with Giada’s daughter Jade with whom Shane obviously bonds very well.
