Inside Anthony Bourdain's troubling final days

Inside Anthony Bourdain's troubling final days

"He is absolutely the last person in the world I would have ever dreamed would do something like this", she said.

Argento, 42, asked that her privacy and that of Bourdain's grieving family be respected. Success beyond his wildest dreams.

"They won't be shipping his remains back for a couple of days because of formalities", said Gladys Bourdain, 83.

The TV chef and food writer died by suicide on Friday (June 9) aged 61, after being found unresponsive in his hotel room in France by friend Eric Ripert.

It was a lifestyle that, while undeniably glamorous, took a toll, he suggested in a 2017 New Yorker profile.

If you are anxious about your or someone else's mental health, the best place to get help is your GP or local mental health provider.

Mr Obama later posted a tribute to the chef on Twitter, sharing his own picture of the pair drinking beer during the meal in Hanoi.

ANTHONY BOURDAIN probably did more than any other chef to bring about the culinary renaissance now underway in the U.S. His books on the restaurant industry, like Kitchen Confidential, were half gonzo autobiography, half user guide, and all irreverent humor, spoken in the salty patois of kitchen subculture. Argento worked on an episode of Bourdain's CNN show "Parts Unknown" during the show's eighth season.

Bourdain became an outspoken supporter of the #MeToo movement after Argento accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault in October.

And while Schroeder may not have known much about Bourdain beforehand, he realized the day Bourdain came to his restaurant that he was in the presence of a culinary superstar.

During their time in Hong Kong, Bourdain dined at and filmed a Parts Unknown segment at the Happy Paradise restaurant.

According to reports, Bourdain hanged himself.

In that acclaimed book, Bourdain, who born in New York City and raised in Leonia, New Jersey, candidly described his personal struggles, including drug use that led to his dropping out of Vassar College. "They were good friends", Karen Reynolds, director of CNN PR and longtime "Parts Unknown" publicist, told People. "And yet he was always kind of - to me, it always seemed like - even though he was very confident or seemed very confident, he was always I think - he was always - just winking at it all". "You only saw beauty in all people".

Anthony Bourdain had revealed in the past that he was "regularly suicidal" after his separated from his first wife.

"It never struck me as peculiar, but it was as if he gave everything to his work and then had nothing, zero, left for himself afterwards", the source told People.

And, with that, it's probably safe to say that Obama spoke for all of us. "You were so loved, the world is not better without you", she wrote in one.
