The salad dressing scandal continues. Jason Sudeikis‘ ex Keeley Hazell shared the same recipe excerpt as his ex-fiancée, Olivia Wildehad done just one day earlier – only with her own remarks seemingly overshadowing the Don’t worry dear director.
On Thursday, October 20, Hazell, 36, shared a special excerpt from Nora Ephron’s book on her Instagram Story Mustard which contains the dressing ingredients. “Vera said, ‘Why do you think you have to turn everything into a story?'” read the underlined passage.
“So I told her why: because if I tell the story, I control the version,” the model’s post continued. “Because if I tell a story, I can make you laugh, and I’d rather have you laugh at me than feel sorry for me.” Because if I tell the story, it doesn’t hurt as much. Because if I tell a story, I can go on with it.” Although those lines are underlined, the recipe for Ephron’s Salad Dressing can be found further down the page.
Hazell’s posts come just one day after Wilde, 38, shared Ephron’s instructions on how to make the spice — which is now at the center of drama surrounding Wilde’s split from Sudeikis in November 2021 and her subsequent relationship with Harry Styles.
“Mix 2 tablespoons of Gray Poupon mustard with 2 tablespoons of good red wine vinegar,” Booksmart the director posted via her own Instagram story on Wednesday, Oct. 19, sharing the same excerpt from Ephron’s memoir. “Then, whisking constantly with a fork, slowly add 6 tablespoons of olive oil, until the vinaigrette becomes thick and creamy; this makes a very strong vinaigrette that is perfect for salad greens like arugula and watercress and endive.”
Two days earlier, on Tuesday, October 17, Wilde and Ted Lasso star, 47, found herself at the center of a scandal after their former nanny – who previously looked after their children Otis, 8, and Daisy, 6 – said Daily mail that Sudeikis became distraught after OC The alum reportedly made a salad for Styles, 28, which was topped with her “special” dressing.
“The night she left with the salad, Jason was chasing her, filming her in the house,” the carer said. “She was saying, ‘I’m afraid of you, Jason, I’m afraid of you.’ And he said, ‘If you fear me, why do you leave your children with me?’ Then Jason went outside and laid under her car to keep her from leaving. She got into the car to go back, he was lying under her car so she wouldn’t leave.”
Although the subject has since become fodder for hundreds of memes, both Wilde and Sudeikis condemned the nanny narrative in a statement to Us Weekly just a few hours later.
“As parents, it is incredibly upsetting to learn that the former nanny of our two young children would choose to publicly make such false and defamatory allegations about us,” the former couple said. “This is the unfortunate culmination of what has now been an 18-month campaign of harassment against us, as well as our loved ones, close friends and colleagues. We will continue to focus on raising and protecting our children with the sincere hope that she will now choose to leave our family alone.”
In a September interview with Vanity FairWilde has spoken out against claims she left Saturday Night Live alum for the “Little Freak” singer, calling the rumors “complete horses—t” and “completely untrue.”
