Mario Batali Fired From 'The Chew' Amid Sexual Assault Allegations

Mario Batali is no longer a co-host of ABC’s The Chew.

After being asked to leave the show during an investigation, the 57-year-old celebrity chef has now been fired in the wake of sexual harassment and assault allegations.

“Upon completing its review into the allegations made against Mario Batali, ABC has terminated its relationship with him and he will no longer appear on The Chew. While we remain unaware of any type of inappropriate behavior involving him and anyone affiliated with our show, ABC takes matters like this very seriously as we are committed to a safe work environment and his past behavior violates our standards of conduct,” the network confirmed on Friday (December 15).

Mario has been accused by eight women, with claims ranging from unwanted sexual advances to groping.

“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,” Mario said in a statement earlier in the week.

Amanda Seyfried Dishes on 'Mamma Mia 2': It's 'Better Than The Original'!

Amanda Seyfried is so excited about Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again – and now, we are too!

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Amanda Seyfried

The 32-year-old actress gushed about the upcoming sequel in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, revealing that she had some concerns – but she’s thrilled with the final outcome, which is “better than the original.”

“Truthfully, when they were like, ‘We’re making Mamma Mia 2,’ I was like, ‘That’s going to be terrible.’ But it’s not! It’s amazing.”

The film follows Donna (played by Meryl Streep in the first film) as a younger woman, played by Lily James.

“As soon as you see Lily on screen, you’re like, ‘Oh my God, that’s Donna! I’m seeing Donna when she was wild and young and free, and she has the essence that Meryl brought to it. And it’s kind of extraordinary.”

“I actually had a better time than I did shooting the first movie. Everybody’s back together and it’s been 10 years. There’s so much love and so much family that it’s infused 100 times in this movie. It was so unexpected for me.”

Mamma Mia 2 hits theaters on July 20, 2018.
