Chocolate Heals Nigella Lawson’s Wounds

In this file picture taken on December 4, 2013 British television chef Nigella Lawson arrives at Isleworth Crown Court in west London, as she prepares to give evidence in a case in which her two personal assistants (Elisabetta and Francesca Grillo) are accused of defrauding her and former husband Charles Saatchi.

In her first public appearance since her two former assistants were acquitted, Nigella Lawson opened up on Good Morning America about how she’s coped with the stress of the trial: a pick-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps attitude paired with a lot of chocolate. When asked about the pain caused by the public scrutiny of the trial, as well as that of her recent divorce from Charles Saatchi, Lawson responded: “I’ll be honest, to have not only your private live, but distortions of your private life, put on display is mortifying.” Yet celebrity chef and cookbook-writer says she’s not one to dwell in self-pity, and claims she’s moved on from the humiliation of her public drug revelations last month. “Since then, I’ve had a lot of chocolate, had a very good Christmas, and I’m into the new year,” she stated confidently. Blake Lively, a professed Lawson fan, would surely approve.
