For the first time in Kitchen Nightmares
history, British chef Gordon Ramsay walks off his own show.
In the segment that aired this week, the difficult owners of Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, AZ - Samy and Amy Bouzaglo - are shown stealing tips from their waitstaff, admitting to firing more than 100 employees over a one year period, firing a waitress for asking a question, telling a customer who had been waiting over an hour for his food to go fuck himself (yes, the police were called during filming
), and passing off frozen, pre-made raviolis and desserts as if they were homemade
. The couple was so resistant to criticism that even the typically steadfast Ramsay decided he couldn’t help them and shut the show down before beginning the rehab phase.
And after viewers took to Yelp to trash the restaurant,
that's when shit really hit the fan. Amy Bouzaglo went on Facebook and proceeded to have an epic meltdown,
going so far as to threaten commenters with police action, and Photoshopping a Reddit thread to make it look like the police were calling users.
They have since taken down the comments, claiming that their social media accounts where hacked.
Amy Bouzaglo is no stranger to controversy. In 2010, Bouzaglo made the local news
for ripping a Yelp reviewer to shreds, and calling him a moron.
Turns out she also used to be known as Amanda Bossingham, and in 2008 she served some time for felony bank fraud and identity theft
, attempting to use someone else's Social Security Number to secure a $15,000 loan.
