The ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ drama will not end. After allegations from a former nanny, the internet has been clamoring to find out what salad dressing could break up Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis. Wilde gave them what they wanted.

On Monday, the ex-nanny told The Daily Mail about Sudeikis’ anger over Wilde making her “special salad dressing” for her castmate, Harry Styles. Sudeikis allegedly laid down behind Wilde’s car to prevent her from leaving.

Wilde posted on her Instagram story a page from Nora Ephron’s novel “Heartburn” which included a recipe for a simple mustard dressing in the prose. “Mix 2 tablespoons of Grey Poupon mustard with 2 tablespoons of good red wine vinegar. Then, whisking constantly with a fork, slowly add 6 tablespoons of olive oil, until the vinaigrette is thick and creamy”.

This post is odd considering Sudeikis and Wilde put out a joint statement denying the claims made by the former nanny.

“As parents, it is incredibly upsetting to learn that a former nanny of our two young children would choose to make such false and scurrilous accusations about us publicly. Her now 18-month-long campaign of harassing us, as well as loved ones, close friends, and colleagues, has reached its unfortunate apex,” reads the statement given to CNN.

While the salad dressing is incredibly simple, the source of the recipe is either a hilarious coincidence or a tongue-in-cheek response to this neverending Hollywood scandal.

For context, Ephron’s book is based on her real-life marriage to journalist Carl Bernstein (yes, one of the reporters that broke the Watergate story!)and their divorce due to Bernstein’s infidelity.

Was Wilde poking fun at what the internet was calling the “adultery salad dressing”? Did she actually make the salad for a hungry Harry Styles? What happened to “the internet feeds itself” as she claimed during Don’t Worry Darling press at the Venice Film Festival?

It’s tough to know exactly, but the internet was having fun with the release of the recipe.
