The 2017 New Yorker Festival- Anthony Bourdain Talks With Patrick Radden Keefe

Bourdain's mother, Gladys Bourdain, told The New York Times that Ripert had told her that "Tony had been in a dark mood these past couple of days", but that she had no idea why he might have made a decision to kill himself.

"I will not waste anybody's time with expressions of shock, surprise, or personal upset, beyond saying that I am ashamed that I was clearly not the kind of person that women friends who knew - and had stories to tell - felt comfortable confiding in", Bourdain wrote in a piece for Medium.

Glaydis Bourdain, his 83-year-old mother, was informed by Ripert that "Tony had been in a dark mood these past couple of days", according to the Times. "Success beyond his wildest dreams". She continued praising her friend, who she said "brought a breath of fresh air and a new energy". Ackerman and other mental health experts are concerned that the suicide rate will again climb after the deaths of Spade and Bourdain. I didn't talk to him this week but all I know was he was so happy last week.

Speaking to The Guardian in January 2017, Bourdain reflected on his chaotic life in the kitchens, saying he had finally "put aside my psychotic rage, after many years being bad to line cooks, abusive to waiters, bullying to dishwashers". She said celebrity suicides also typically prompt an increase in calls to suicide help lines.

"Everything he did - traveling the world, introducing us to new cultures, telling us to get out there and try things and be nice to different people is so needed right now".

As the world continues to come to terms with the death of Anthony Bourdain, CNN's Jim Bittermann speaks to French chef Julien Schroeder. "We'll miss him." Photographed by Pete Souza, Obama's official White House photographer, the duo could be seen sitting on plastic stools and enjoying local beer.

Broussard said her restaurant will be featured in an episode of 'Parts Unknown airing next Sunday, June 17. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly hard time".

Before his death, Bourdain was also supporting his girlfriend Asia Argento after she told The New Yorker she had been raped by Harvey Weinstein.

So, now we're left with the question: Did Anthony Bourdain kill himself because Asia Argento was cheating on him?

Lotti plans to dine at the Chambard's restaurant, and "I will have a thought about him".

"Anthony gave all of himself in everything he did. He was my love, my rock, my protector", she said in her statement. "I am beyond devastated". My thoughts are with his family. "I would ask that you respect their privacy and mine", she added.
