ongbok: RandomRandom: What's the over/under on how long she keeps the place running without her sugar daddy?  Two months?  Three?

When he's deported, she'll either follow him to Israel or (go back to?) working as a stripper.  What other kind of boss would hire that kind of crazy?

Who would hire her as a stripper? Seriously, could you imagine her yelling at some poor guy that didn't want a lap dance from her?


There could be a niche market for a club with rude strippers. Kind of like how places with notoriously rude bartenders might still attract customers for the novelty of the experience.

catmandu: Popcorn Johnny: catmandu: It does get better and better doesn't it?

The only way it could get any better at this point is if Amy had a sex tape.

After watching the video, it seems that Kitchen Nightmares was more real than some people think.

I have never watched it before but have seen similar shows so I understand the formula. I suspected this episode was less staged shiat and more real because Ramsay got quieter and quieter as the episode went on. They didn't need him to create drama, nutso and craycray were doing a great job by themselves.


I saw he. In fact, he never raised his voice. He seemed to be in a daze, the whole way.

Given the personality issues these two boneheads have I can't imagine it would have been too hard to get them to brag about their crimes over the phone. You just need to ask them "Since you have already done your time and paid your dues you are free to talk. So, which one of you has committed the most awesome crime?"

Mother Teresa was a con artist? Man, you can't trust anyone these days.

I read the article and it struck me as having a whole lot of commentary decrying that MT was  was a fanatic, a fundamentalist, and a fraud, but very little (if any) evidence to support that conclusion. Now, I'm not claiming that the article's author is wrong, but her claims are not supported by the rest of the article.

Yeah that's why I said it's a good start, but that I'd recommend reading Hitchens full book on the subject, along with God is not Great.  Of course they're ranty, since you know, look who we're talking about, but the man did do deep research.  The Vatican doesn't interview J Random Slander-ist regarding beatification after all.

Reading that Wiki article, there's not much in the way of supporting evidence that isn't [Citation Needed]'d. A lot of it looks like stuff that was relatively minor and trumped up in an attack on Mother Teresa.

Now, the things that did stick with me is the idea that "She wasn't actually central to the issue, and that others did far more work than she did", but she certainly was the face of Western efforts to assist the poor in India, something that did help to keep the issue going.

Was she a Saint? I don't know, and seeing as I'm not Catholic Christian (Or any other sort of Christian), I do not intend to make a judgement on such. However, based on what I've seen, I don't think she was 'evil', as is implied by the criticisms leveled against her.

Someone needs to stomp his head in...that would fix his attitude problem.


My infinite wisdom tells me that people are together for any or all of these 5 reasons.
1.Love
2. Awesome sex
3. Money
4. Drugs
5. Protection

Now I don't know either of them personally, but I'm reasonably confident we can rule out the first 2.

After watching the video, it seems that Kitchen Nightmares was more real than some people think.


Yeah, people keep screaming that it was scripted, and while all Reality TV is scripted to some point, I have just a few questions for the happy couple:

1. Did Ramsay wait an hour and 15 minutes for a pizza?
2. Was it doughy in the center when he DID get it?
3. Did customers actually get chased out of the restaurant when they got angry about how long they had to wait(With no food)?
4. Does the server NOT get to ring up orders, instead relaying that info to Samy, risking incomplete or wrong orders?
5. Do you guys seriously confiscate server tips?
6. Does Amy really only work a single ticket on the line?
7. Did you REALLY fire a girl for confirming that you had the table ?

If these weren't "staged", then you can't cry to anyone but Mama, as those are the things most people have issues with. The screaming and throwing thing things is obviously played up for the dran, but all of those other things were on camera for the whole world to see. You can't complain when they play it up in front of pretty much everyone.

dickfreckle: fusillade762: hubiestubert: The sad thing?

These are FAR from the craziest folks in business in Maricopa.

I worked for a chef when I first got to Phoenix in the Biltmore area, who was running cover for some high class call girls. They could meet clients, evaluate them, and then use him as their billable, which he got a cut from, so that the agency could launder the cash. Very classy joint, and the kicker? His ex-wife was the sommelier--and just mere months from her Master Somelier status. For the non-food nerds, there are only about 200 Master Sommeliers in the world, and over half of them are in the US. She since got her certification, and is one of 18 women certified here in the US--and his partner. Did I mention that the chef was married? And that he often took out a bit of his "arrangement" out in trade? Oh, and did I mention THAT was part of the reason that his partner became his EX-wife? Don't get me wrong, Christopher did amazing food. He also employed a LOT of illegal labor, engaged in money transactions that even my mobbed up bosses of the past would have raised eyebrows about, and tended to scream at cooks, waitstaff and customers on a regular basis?

Amy? In comparison from what I saw in my years out in Phoenix, is sort of small potatoes, even for the crazy and business-sketchy...

This reminds me of a section of Bourdain's "Kitchen Confidential" where he describe all the shady stuff going on behind the scenes in the restaurant biz (gun running, drug dealing, etc).

One of the reasons I loved that book was the authenticity. It was clear this was a man who had dredged the restaurant and bar industry over the course of years. You can't really fake having worked in a high volume kitchen, bar, or floor. There's just a certain way of describing the stories and characters that an accountant-turned-author is never going to get.


Most of us that have had the dubious pleasure of working in this industry have stories, oh we have stories.

From their lawyer, quoted in the article:  "Asser, speaking just hours before the Bouzaglos reopened their embattled restaurant, said he could not comment on the case. He also said Samy's immigration case has nothing to do with the television show. In fact, Asser said, he has not even watched the episode that has earned his client celebrity status.

"I didn't know they were going to go on (the show)," he said."

Ten bucks says this is lawyer-speak for "I TOLD my client not to do that, and he did it anyway."

hubiestubert: ladyfortuna: Your words frighten me.

Lady, this is a County that KEEPS electing Sheriff Joe. What I saw out there made me long for the straight up corruption that is Massachusetts. At least the mobbed up asshats out here keep the neighborhoods safe. Seriously. Safest neighborhood I've been in out here had a meth lab--the guys who ran it made for damn sure that their clients weren't anywhere near, and ran anyone off who even thought about attracting attention. The mobbed up neighborhoods? Safe as houses.

Out in Phoenix? Whole different story, whole different ballgame. This is a town that still thinks of itself as the Wild West, only with more housing developments, a lot more industry cash, and a few sports teams and training camps. Even those aren't terrible safe. Worst shootings in the area have happened at or near those arenas. It is the first place that I've thought about carrying since Boston. Then I was making night deposits near the Combat Zone, back when it was still sketchy.  Phoenix and Maricopa is a Disneyland for violence and crazy, and none of the officials nor their Sheriffs nor their police are particularly inclined to do much about it, because the more headlines means harder crackdowns, more press, more funding, and herding folks into communities to flee the nastiness, which happened to be owned by folks who put the folks supposedly trying to "control" the problem into office.

Try Pema County. Nice folks. Decent. Maricopa?  It's Disneyland with golf, guns, and glory.


I lived across the street from two houses of murderers, a house full of drug runners, a drug lab next door. And the cops and the judges and the prosecutors all knew what was going on. They got their bribes so they did nothing to stop the two women--one of them pregnant--from being strangled, the break-ins, stolen cars, the 30 illegals sleeping in one house for $100 a month per mattress.

Phoenix has always been the place where the Vegas mob kills people.

There was a cop murdered while on duty. The city wouldn't put his name on the memorial for cops killed on duty.
