Anthony Bourdain's Mom Confirms His 'Dark Mood' Before Death

Anthony Bourdain's Mom Confirms His 'Dark Mood' Before Death

Fans of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, who officials say committed suicide in France on Friday, flocked to the NY restaurant where he was an executive chef to pay tribute to him. The 42-year-old actress said that she is beyond devasted after the death of Bourdain. He also was committed to the immigrant workers in his and other kitchens throughout the restaurant industry.

President Obama, who made a guest appearance on "Parts Unknown" in 2016, tweeted a touching photo and memory of Bourdain. I immediately thought of Eric and his deep friendship with Tony when I heard the news today.

"He was effusive and happy about the Hong Kong episode-that was all he could talk about weeks leading up to it, how it was like a high water mark for him", she said.

"I am proud and honored to know you. 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". "It's a shame I have to live with", he said.

"A father, a chef, a correspondent, a poet, a renegade, an worldwide TV icon", CNN's Brian Stelter described late colleague Anthony Bourdain on Reliable Sources, who shocked the world by taking his own life on Friday.

The chef was found dead in his hotel bathroom on Friday morning. French authorities later confirmed Bourdain's cause of death as suicide, revealing he'd used a belt from a hotel bathrobe to hang himself and that there was no evidence of foul play.

Mr Obama wrote: "He taught us about food - but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together".

After deleting the story, she posted a note to Instagram and Twitter calling Bourdain a "brilliant, fearless spirit" who "touched and inspired so many". Bourdain was in Strasbourg, France, to shoot for the new season of the show.

Ripert found the 61-year-old "unresponsive", CNN reported. She followed up by saying, " I've been walking around all day with this empty pit in my stomach". "Nobody's ever going to say, 'Oh, but you promised we were going to go to the beach.' No, you get a gig, that's it. Work first".

The mom added that the funeral plans for her son are in the hands of his estranged wife, Ottavia Busia Bourdain, because Ottavia is legally still his next of kin. He really moved me.

How to get help: In the U.S., call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. He was somebody who was generous with his time.

"Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly" took Bourdain from the role of great chef to major celebrity.
