A Look Into David Venable’s Personal Life Which He Likes To Keep Private
Moving onto his personal and love life, Mr. Venable doesn’t share commentaries on it as openly as he shares about the food products. When asked about his personal life, he smiles kindly and politely asks that his private life be kept private.
But his statement came with a cost. Due to his lowkey love life, he has even been speculated of being 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 in some point of 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 man fall in love!
