Her biological father is Alexander DeBenedetti and in 1991 he pled guilty to raping a minor and was sentenced to 14 years in prison. It looks like Giada was a victim of incest. Here is a story from the LA Times, printed in 1994, when Giada would have been exactly 24 years old. The story is about a rape treatment center for victims. The story quotes a 24 year old un-named daughter of Italian movie producer named Alexander DeBenedetti. She describes being raped regularly at least three times a week from the time she was 13 years old. The article goes on to say that when the victim finally spoke out, her father, DeBenedetti, pled guilty to raping a minor and was sentenced to 14 years in prison. Unless Alex DeBenedetti had two daughters born the same year as Giada, it sounds a whole lot like Giada is the victim quoted in the article. Here is the link in case anyone is interested. http://articles.latimes.com/1994-10-09/news/ls-48246_1_boyfriend
Giada Pamela De Laurentiis is the daughter of Alex De Benedetti who was an associate of Giada's maternal grandfather, Dino De Laurentiis. Her mother is Veronica De Laurentiis. After her parents divorced, she and her siblings took their mother's surname.
