Wilde and Sudeikis, who have had a contentious split, issued a rare jointstatement slamming the nanny’s untruths.

“As parents, it is incredibly upsetting to learn that a former nanny of ourtwo young children would choose to make such false and scurrilous accusationsabout us publicly,” they said. “Her now 18-month-long campaign of harassingus, as well as loved ones, close friends and colleagues, has reached itsunfortunate apex,” they continued. “We will continue to focus on raising andprotecting our children with the sincere hope that she will now choose toleave our family alone.”

Despite their statement, the internet has been obsessed with finding thesalad dressingrecipe. People havescoured past interviews Wilde has done in which she talked food and madememes.

One can’t help but think Wilde saw the viral social media comment from BizzyEmerson, later shared by Comments by Celebs, which said, “If I was OliviaWilde, I would post the salad dressing recipe to my Instagram story and thenturn off my phone,” because that’s pretty much what she did.

Wilde and Sudeikis started dating in 2011, became engaged and then it wasreported that they split in November 2020 — around the time of the saladdressing fight. However, Wilde has maintained that it’s a “complete horses***”that she “left Jason for Harry… [My] relationship [with Jason] was over longbefore I dissolved with Harry… We officially the relationship towards thebeginning of the pandemic. We were raising two kids during lockdown, so we co-parented through that time. Once it became clear that cohabitating was nolonger beneficial for the children, it became the responsible thing to _nah,_because we could be better parents as friends who live in different houses.”
