The anonymous nanny stated, “Wilde made this salad and she made her special dressing and left with her salad to have dinner with [Harry].” “I said, what salad dressing? He said: ‘She has a special salad dressing she makes for us and she’s taken it to have it with him now’. I don’t know what was in it.
“Out of everything, he was like, ‘she made her special salad dressing and took it to him’,” she concluded. The nanny claimed that Sudeikis threatened his life by jumping in front of Olivia’s car to prevent her from meeting Harry. According to her, Jason’s act of desperation was enough to force Wilde to head back into their home.
“He said he was doing it on purpose to make her late going to see Harry,” the nanny claimed. “Jason told me: ‘She made this salad and she made her special dressing and she’s leaving with her salad to have dinner with [Harry],’” she claimed. She also stated that Jason found out about Olivia’s affair through her Apple Watch.
Olivia Comes Forward To Clarify…
“Don’t Worry Darling” director Olivia Wilde has come forward to clarify about this “special recipe” which escalated all the drama. While the nanny did not reveal the ingredients of this “special recipe”, Olivia Wilde took to Instagram and shared a passage from Nora Ephron’s “Heartburn”, which provides the exact same salad dressing recipe.
If you aren’t aware, Heartburn” is based on Nora Ephron’s marriage to Carl Bernstein, and the events leading to their divorce after his affair with and divorce with Margaret Jay, the daughter of former British prime minister James Callaghan. Per this passage on Olivia’s IG story, the recipe reads as:
“Mix 2 tablespoons Grey Poupon with 2 tablespoons good red wine vinegar. Then, whisk constantly with a fork, slowly add 6 tablespoons olive oil, until the vinaigrette is thick and creamy; this makes a very strong vinaigrette that’s perfect for salad greens like arugula and watercress and endive.”
Through this passage, Olivia also hinted that she is trying to move on from her relationship and drama with Sudeikis. At one point in the passage, it’s written, “Because if I tell the story, I can make you laugh, and I would 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 the story, I can get on with it.”
Well, the buzz created around this recipe has finally ended, and it appears to be nothing more than a basic dressing. Olivia isn’t the mastermind behind this recipe, and it’s clearly mentioned on page 177 of Nora’s 1983 novel “Heartburn”. So yea, while netizens sparked rumors stating that Olivia prepared a special salad to get laid with Harry Styles, this is what reality looks like.
At the same time, Olivia and Jason released a joint statement, shutting down the claims made by this anonymous nanny, by calling them “false and scurrilous accusations.” In the joint statement, the former couple, who shared two children, stated: “As parents, it is incredibly upsetting to learn that a former nanny of our two young children would choose to make such false and scurrilous accusations about us publicly,”
They continued, “Her now 18-month-long campaign of harassing us, as well as loved ones, close friends and colleagues, has reached its unfortunate apex. 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.”
Well, we don’t know, if Olivia made a ‘special recipe’ for Harry Styles or not, but once this is sure, there is nothing special in it. The drama between Olivia and Jason has continued to escalate since they spilt in 2021. Per a court filing last, the 38-year-old actress said that her ex-husband was trying to aggressively embarrass and “threaten” her when she was served onstage.
Many celebrities have rolled their eyes over Olivia and Harry’s relationship. Since the filming of “Don’t Worry Darling”, paps have captured them in PDA-packed moments. In September, the As It Was singer and his Don’t Worry Darling co-star were spotted out and about in public together on a dinner date at a restaurant in New York City.
On the other hand, Jason claimed that he had no prior knowledge of the time or place where the envelope would have been delivered and that he would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner.
However, in August, the American filmmaker won the custody battle of her two children as the court dismissed Jason’s custody petition and decreed that their kids’ home is in California. But hey, the recipe from the book looks interesting and worth trying, of course not so special for that “special someone”, eh?
