Well-publicized allegations that she had high-wire flings with Bobby Flay, Matt Lauer and John Mayer before supposedly busting up her own marriage — and that of TV producer Shane Farley, with whom she was recently spotted canoodling on the beach in Mexico — have made De Laurentiis’s wish come true. “Once she started on the Food Network [back in 2003], she wanted to be a star and make as much money as possible,” says Allen Salkin, author of “From Scratch: The Uncensored History of the Food Network.” There are those who believe that 45-year-old De Laurentiis’ decision to hitch her wagon to a new guy — going from husband of 11 years Todd Thompson, a fashion designer for Anthropologie, to producer Farley — fits a pattern of manhandled ambition.A little tipsy by the end of the night, Andy wanted to go to bed, but Martha didn't.'Upset and angry, Andy went to bed alone,' Oppenheimer wrote, 'while Martha went off with her new friend.
