One woman stated that Batali rubbed her breasts after she spilled wine on herself accidentally while the other claimed that he repeatedly grabbed her from behind and pulled her against him.

The third victim allegedly reported that he grabbed her breasts at a work party. 

Batali didn't deny all the allegations saying they "match up" the way he behaved with those ladies.

Batali, who became a star hosting one of Food Network's first TV shows, Molto Mario publicly apologized to his friends and family admitting the sexual misconduct allegations.

He said in a statement on Monday, 11 December 2017,

"I apologize to the people I have mistreated and hurt. Although the identities of most of the individuals mentioned in these stories have not been revealed to me, much of the behavior described does, in fact, match up with ways I have acted."

"That behavior was wrong and there are no excuses. I take full responsibility and am deeply sorry for any pain, humiliation or discomfort I have caused to my peers, employees, customers, friends, and family."

He continued,

"I know my actions have disappointed many people. The successes I have enjoyed are owned by everyone on my team. The failures are mine alone. To the people who have been at my side during this time — my family, my partners, my employees, my friends, my fans — I am grateful for your support and hopeful that I can regain your respect and trust. I will spend the next period of time trying to do that."

Following the sexual misconduct, Batali was fired from The Chew who was working as a co-host. ABC revealed,

"We have asked Mario Batali to step away from The Chew while we review the allegations that have just recently come to our attention. ABC takes matters like this very seriously as we are committed to a safe work environment. While we are unaware of any type of inappropriate behavior involving him and anyone affiliated with the show, we will swiftly address any alleged violations of our standards of conduct."

With the major scandal and firing, many fans of the couple wonder why Cahn hasn't spoken a word on the topic? Has everything been settled between the two or have they secretly been separated?

The New York Police Department finally closed the misconduct allegations against the celebrity chef and restaurateur without filing charges in January 2019. All three investigations against him were closed due to lack of evidence to make an arrest.
