Andrew married Rishia Haas on December 29, 2002. The TV host hasn’t bothered to share much about his married life, but it seemed to happen hastily, as he mentioned in an interview.

He divulged, “We could not wait to be married,” and in the meantime, he also seemed apologetic due to the mistiming for the party. He said, “And I can’t think of anything crueler to do to my friends and family in New York and Los Angeles than to have them come here in the middle of January.”

The 56-year-old chef did take a moment to share about his wife in an interview. He mentioned his wife a couple of times, considering her the best travel partner. Along with that, he also called her an ideal vacation partner.
