Just when you thought the poop storm had subsided, the folks from Amy's Baking Company have resurfaced. Further proving that television is the devil, the couple is currently casting staff for their previously-rumored reality show.

Says the Amy's Baking Company Facebook page:

We are currently hiring/casting servers and bussers for the upcoming filming of our Reality TV show! Applicants please send your resume and head shot, or current photo to

That's not all that's in store for the explosive couple. There will also be a follow-up special from the producers of "Kitchen Nightmares."

Says Chow Bella:

"Since Amy's became a huge Internet sensation, we want to get the views from people around the community," a producer of the show told me. He went on to say that the special was not intended to be a follow-up to the original Kitchen Nightmares episode, that Gordon Ramsay would not be involved, and that the show would not include revisiting Amy's Baking Company or interviews with owners Amy and Samy Bouzaglo.

To recap just a bit, Amy's Baking Company became an Internet sensation earlier this year when the restaurant's episode of "Kitchen Nightmares" with Gordon Ramsay aired. The couple was TV gold, with their epic meltdown and subsequent attempts to cover their tracks. In addition to the fact that no actual baking happened in the shop, they couple withheld all the tipsfrom their servers, and no one could touch the register besides Samy.

They even minted their own swagto, and this new show is just another way to capitalize on their crazy.
