At a fashion show, Anthony Bourdain, Kate Spade remembered

Sunday, 10 Jun, 2018

Anthony and Asia announced they were in a couple in May a year ago.

"I hurt, disappointed and offended many, many, many people and I regret a lot. Anyone contemplating suicide should know that help is available, and that there is no shame in seeking care for your mental health", Dr. Altha Stewart of the American Psychiatric Association said in a statement. Some noted that Bourdain's death came just days after the suicide of fashion designer Kate Spade, also a great shock to those who knew her. Bourdain's own mother, Gladys Bourdain, a longtime editor at The New York Times, said she had no indication that her son might have been thinking of suicide.

-Increased use of alcohol or drugs.

It's noticing things like that - and being unafraid to voice those observations in his books, blogs and on his television shows, that made Anthony Bourdain beloved, even revered, by the many communities of marginalized people that he visited, touched and supported. The "me" that was the authentic, joyful person on the job became the mask. "It's a shame I have to live with". "I'm lean, my alcohol bloat has gone and I do Brazilian jiu-jitsu every day". "He loved Vietnamese food".

"Anthony I am so mad at you", Rose tweeted. He had been in the area to film an upcoming episode of the CNN travel and food show. And I believe most people put on a mask and tell themselves a variation of, "Why am I dealing with this when I've got it good?" or, "I have a great job, or spouse and kids who love me". "I suppose I've learnt humility".

"I'm a pretty lucky man. As any chef will tell you, our entire service economy-the restaurant business as we know it-in most American cities, would collapse overnight without Mexican workers".

Bourdain's partner, Asia Argento, also spoke out via Instagram on Friday.

There's no evidence of foul play or violence in celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain's death in a French hotel room, a French prosecutor said Saturday. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly hard time". "It's impossible to fathom how quickly one's life can change".

In honor of his memory and all of those dear people who left us all too early, and in taking whatever action we can to prevent suicide in the U.S., Xi'an Famous Foods will be donating 100% of our net sales on June 8, 2018, from all of our stores, to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK @800273talk.
