I had previously featured him at Target Liberty:
Oh Yeah, Anthony Bourdain Stands Up to Wolfgang Puck and the PETA Crowd (I mean really stands up)
This is a developing story. Return to this post for updates.
CNN confirmed Bourdain's death on Friday and said
the cause of death was suicide.
"It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain," the network said in a statement Friday morning. "His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. 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 difficult time."
Bourdain was in France working on an upcoming episode of his award-winning CNN series.
In 2014, I wrote:
If you haven't caught Bourdain's show, Parts Unkown, on CNN, you should. There is no politically correct nonsense that is typical of most CNN reporting. It is just Bourdain travelling to different locales around the globe. He is a great story teller and has a beautiful knack for finding the neat nooks and crannies of the people, places and food of the world.-RW
So he killed himself over a woman.
The Daily Mail reported two days before his suicide about his girlfriend, Asia Argento:
Asia Argento spent the weekend in Rome with reporter Hugo Clement, with the two seen smiling as they walked through the streets of Rome.
The pair were seen affectionately embracing just and laughing with a group of friends just a few weeks after attending the Cannes Film Festival
UPDATE 4RW note:
Never kill yourself over a woman, The next one is always better. Not kidding,
it is a law of nature.
