5.) Meet Amy's Baking Company's New PR Guy: Big-Haired, Big-Mouthed Jason Rose

Published on May 15, 2013.

It was inevitable that Jason Rose represent Amy's Baking Company.

Who else but the guy who thought to nudge semi-senile, publicity-obsessed Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio into shilling for a restaurant called Pink Taco? The flack who bent campaign sign laws to get his sushi-slinging client publicity? The man who got himself fired by the Special Olympics for making a special ed joke on Twitter?

To put it mildly, Rose specializes in damage control.

4.) Top 10 "Reviews" of Amy's Baking Company on Yelp

Published on May 15, 2013.

What began as a Yelp smackdown three years ago, has blown up into a national firestorm after the Scottsdale-based restaurant appeared on the season finale of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares.

Well, after the show aired, the Internet imploded on the restaurant's Yelp and Facebook pages, and Reddit (of course) jumped in the mix, too.

To take it back to where it all began, here are the top 10 comments on ABC's Yelp page.

3.) Screaming, Expletives, and, Eventually, Police: All in the First Night of Kitchen Nightmares Taping at Amy's Baking Company

Published on December 10, 2012.

Yelpers went nuts over the weekend -- and guess who was the topic? Amy Bouzaglo of Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, who apparently cooked up a storm on Saturday.

In fact, I reached out to one diner who was at Saturday night's taping of Kitchen Nightmares at Amy's. He got a very real dose of reality television -- more than he bargained for, actually.

And now, the latest news from Crazy Amy's.  According to "The Daily News" today,  "Samy, a Moroccan-born Israeli immigrant, may have his residency status revoked."

Quick, pick up the phone and call Sheriff Arpaio!  Just think of all the headlines and interviews he will get out of arresting this illegal.  Oh wait, Samy's not Mexican.  Nevermind Joe, to you it won't count.

Here's some truly delicious irony for you. May 21 is National Waiters & Waitresses Day!

The 1,000 people who reserved a seat at the "Re-Opening" should be ashamed of themselves. You are encouraging their bad behavior as well as the terrible treatment of employees and customers. I realize to many it is similar to attending a circus or oddity show, however with their twisted ideals I'm sure they will take it as an affirmation that they are true "chefs".

Traditionally when businesses show unfair practices the public generally boycotts them. They stole the wait staff's tips; isn't that enough to demonstrate the lack of concern for their employees not to mention state laws.

If you do try dining at Amy's you might want to go prepared.

1. Eat a full meal before you go. The wait will be long and the food will be bad.

2. Write down a few phone numbers of people you can call collect because cells phones are not allow in jail.

3. Be sure to have the name of a reputable Bail Bond Agent in case you need to post bail from jail.

4. Hire personal security if you do indeed enter into an altercation with Samy -- remember he IS THE GANGSTA, and "you do not want to F---- with him".
