The Chew: Clinton Kelly & Damon Bayles
According to Clinton Kelly, the question that fans most want to know is why his husband, Damon Bayles, has never been on The Chew before. That all changed today when The Chew visited Clinton and Damon at home and made their Chocolate Peanut Butter Bourbon Parfaits recipe for dessert.
The Chew: Clinton Kelly Married
Clinton Kelly and Damon Bayles have been together for eight years, they said. They share an apartment in New York City, and it was important for them to be able to renovate their space to make it more open and facilitate enough seating to host parties or entertain at home.
But it sounds like one place where they don’t always see eye to eye is the kitchen, because Clinton claims that Damon likes to make a mess while baking. That’s why they headed in the kitchen together this time, to make a decadent dessert. Here is what happened.
