    While I did not see that actual show, I really have to take Ramsey with a large grain od salt. Him and that other goofy brit on resaurant impossible. As far as cyberbullying one has to go no further than Yelp to see that at it's best. Some of the places they slam I have been to and have comee away with a totally different experience.

    I'm not sure "rais(ing) awareness for cyber-bullying" is Amy's main concern.
     
    I saw the show, and I think they're a pair of self centered, short sighted loons.  It was one of the few episodes where Gordon Ramsey doesn't come across as the most profane person in the room.
     
    Here's further discussion at LTHForum with lot's of links to local news stories on the restaurant and its owners:
    http://lthforum.com/bb/vi..pic.php?f=18&t=8608
     
    The discussion starts about halfway down the page with a May 14th post by David Hammond.  Upthread is unrelated discussion from about seven years ago.

    We live in Scottsdale during the winter months...and have to agree the attitude of this place is awful and the food isn't great...tried it twice, will never go back...they probably won't be open by the time we go back in
    November.  Lots and lots of better places to spend your money in.

    I have to remember...in the "good old days"....the phrase was: " If you liked a place, you'd tell, maybe, 2 people; if you disliked it, you'd tell 10-20".  Today that seems it needs to be upped to 10-20 MILLION.
     
    The air of Scottsdale may smell as sweet as ever, but I detect a faint whiff of Chapter Eleven coming!

    What a trainwreck out in Arizona! How do they stay afloat with all of that bad publicity?

    We are all aware that tv can be edited to show the storyline the producers desire, but these people seemed genuinely delusional.  Taking your waitresses tips?  Unforgivable.  Going through over 100 employees in such a short amount of time is amazing. 
     
    So, if you were going to be in the Phoenix area, would you drive over to Scottsdale to see the place with your own eyes?  I don't think I would, but there has to be people going there now just out of curiosity.

    Didn't Batali and his partner get sued for taking their employees tips? I think the employees won because if your a waiter your tips are income and we all know how understanding the IRS is. So these people need to dry up and blow away.

    You might be interested to know a little more about "Amy". Her real name is Amanda Patricia Bossingham. It turns out, "Amy" is an ex-con who served prison time in Arizona for a number of criminal activities. Maybe that's where she learned how to be such a rude, disgusting woman. Note the link.........

    bb,
    You are exactly right about the manipulative editing techniques employed by producers to juice up a storyline. As someone in that business, I'm especially watchful and wary of that trickery.  However, the issues depicted in this episode of Kitchen Nightmares appear to be genuine, going far beyond the point where they can (or need to) be accentuated.

    To the surprise of absolutely no one, it looks like Amy and Samy will be getting their own reality tv show.

    That is perhaps one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard!  Even if the person was a PETA freak!  I hope to Gawd tax dollars were not involved in "hearing this'

    Oh, and here is a link to the actual show.


    I had no idea about what this was all about.
     
    And, even though I know who Gordon Ramsey is, I much prefer to watch shows which feature such as Feran Adria or Joel Robochon.  So, I "clicked" BB's link and rolled my eyes at it's being 42 minutes. 
     
    But, I had to sample a minute and was then transfixed.  Chef Ramsey, whose "shtick" is acting psychotic, is therein confronting true psychosis.  His reaction to that sad fact revealed him to be a true gentleman.
     
    May God Help them.

    Thanks to a spammer this amusing thread was resurrected.  If any of you missed the show, here it is again. 
     
    (CAUTION:  if you are the type that cannot bear watching 9-11 footage or avert your eyes when passing a car crash, this video is NOT for you!).
