A Look Into David Venable’s Personal Life Which He Likes To Keep Private
Venable doesn’t make comments on his personal life as openly as he shares about the food products. When asked about his personal life, he smiles kindly and politely requests that his private life be kept confidential.
But his statement came with a cost. Due to his lowkey love life, fans began speculating that he was gay. Not only that, he has also been the subject of unflattering blog posts about his body and his sex life.
Already over 50, we can assume that he must have had romantic partners at some point in his life. But it looks like he has never thought of getting married at all, as in an interview with the NY Times in 2015, he revealed that he lives alone!
Maybe for some people like David, single life rolls the best. But we would love to see this darling of a man fall in love!
