Giada De Laurentiis is the daughter of a famous Italian actress Veronica De Laurentiis and her first husband actor and producer Alex De Benedetti. Giada moved to California with her mother after her parents’ divorce, where she attended the University of California, Los Angeles, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in social anthropology. She then studied at Le Cordon Bleu (“The Blue Ribbon”) in Paris, which is the world’s largest hospitality educational institution, with focus on hospitality management, gastronomy, and culinary arts. When De Laurentiis returned to the United States in the late ’90s, she began working as a professional chef at a variety of restaurants in Los Angeles, most notably in Wolfgang Puck’s “Spago”, which was named the most iconic restaurant in Los Angeles. At this time, Giada De Laurentiis earned a substantial amount of money that increased her net worth. She then ventured on to work as a food stylist, and attracted the attention of the Food Network. It was in 2003 with her own TV show titled “Everyday Italian” that De Laurentiis made her mark in the business. Such a successful TV debut gave De Laurentiis an opportunity to appear on other culinary shows, as well as boosting her net worth.
In 2006, Giada began hosting a show entitled “Behind the Bash”, that examines the catering process during big events. A year later, De Laurentiis appeared in her own series entitled “Giada’s Weekend Getaways”, which ran for two seasons and a total of 26 episodes. Giada’s remarkable television appearances resulted in yet another series, entitled “Giada at Home” that first aired in 2008. The show has now been on air for six seasons, and consists of 215 episodes to date.
Even though Giada De Laurentiis has generated most of her net worth through her appearances on television, she is also an outstanding businesswoman. In 2008, De Laurentiis and the Barilla Group launched an Italian gourmet line, and in 2010 Giada created a line of kitchen supplies, before opening her first restaurant named “Giada” in Las Vegas in 2014.
In addition, Giada is a known writer with seven cookery book publications under her name. Two of her works, namely “Giada at Home: Family Recipes from Italy and California”, and “Weeknights with Giada: Quick and Simple Recipes to Revamp Dinner” reached the #1 position on The New York Times Best Seller list. A professional chef, writer, actress and businesswoman with an estimated net worth of $15 million, Giada De Laurentiis has been nominated for and rewarded with several awards, including Daytime Emmy Award, and Gracie Award. In 2012, De Laurentiis was inducted into the Culinary Hall of Fame. Giada currently hosts “Giada at Home”, and appears as a co-host on NBC’s morning TV show “Today”.
Away from the kitchen, in the US version of the Tinker Bell special Pixie Hollow Bake Off 2014, De Laurentiis voiced the character of Gelata: this no doubt added spice to her net worth.
In her personal life, Giada de Laurentis married Todd Thompson in 2003; the couple have a daughter, but divorced in 2015.
