Video: Amy's Baking Company Owners Explain Their Crazy With More Crazy on Local News
Bless the brave heart of the news reporter in Scottsdale, Arizona dispatched to Amy's Baking Company to follow up on the post-"Kitchen Nightmares" craziness of the couple who own the troubled restaurant even Gordon Ramsay couldn't help.
Maintaining their Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, Reddit, and business websites were simultaneously hacked (imagine that!) Monday night, giving nasty foul-mouthed angry people the chance to post hateful crazy messages on their various pages under their names, Amy and Samy Bouzaglo are trying to distance themselves from their epic online meltdown and say the FBI are looking into their case.
However, the pair are giving a mixed message when it comes to talking to the press, as this news video proves, and they are still providing solid entertainment for the masses, since knowing when to shut up is not their forte. While Amy Bouzaglo insists the camera crew is trespassing and she won't talk, her "gangster" husband pushes her aside and tells the reporter he is under contract to not talk about "Kitchen Nightmares," before proceeding to talk about "Kitchen Nightmares."
Not surprisingly, there was no line of customers waiting to get their pizzas with a side of "go fuck yourself" outside the restaurant when the reporter showed up. Seems most folks interested in Amy's Baking Company are scattered around the globe, happily leaving faux Yelp reviews of the struggling eatery and engaging in banter with the "hackers" on Amy's Facebook page.
