As punishing and relentless as a Phoenix summer, Amy Bouzaglo, the high-strung owner of Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, is back in the news with more tales highlighting her and husband Samy's (who's still up for deportation) tenuous grasp on reality.

This time, Amy's target is Miranda (last name unknown), the former waitress who appeared on the infamous Kitchen Nightmares season finale.

The website International Business Times reports that a week following the disastrous Kitchen Nightmares airing of Amy's Baking Company in May, Miranda was interviewed by the Phoenix radio station Mix 96.9, to whom she said that Samy accused her of "stealing a tip" given to her by a customer:

"So I was taking them [tips], of course, because legally that's my money, and he [Samy] accused me of taking it, stealing his money. That's what he said to me. He came to me like in my face, yelling at me, 'Give me my money, give me my money!'"

"And I just looked at him in anger and told him, 'It's not your money.' I yelled at him and screamed at him. It was five dollars. Five dollars and he made a huge scene about it like it's the end of the world. So I threw it at him and I walked out. And that's the end of it."

Naturally, Amy took issue with the statement and, last week,entertainment news and gossip website Radar Online obtained a surveillance video from the restaurant showing an exchange between Miranda and Samy.

There's no audio, so who the hell knows what's happening, but at the end of the video, Amy can be heard saying:

""Here! She had it in her pocket. Fucking bitch threw it right there. That's all I need for the police! That's it, she's going to jail, this little bitch!"






Radar Online goes on to say that the Bouzaglos will not file charges against Miranda who, at the time of her employment at Amy's Baking Company, allegedly signed an outrageous 20-rule contract that stated that "any and all 'tips' are property of the house."

The Bouzaglos' confiscation of their servers' tips was a hot button on Kitchen Nightmares, and Amy and Samy since have changed their tip policy.

Radar Online has also reported that the Bouzaglos are "closing on" a deal for their own reality show. Stay tuned for details.

Only in America can a couple of scumbag restaurant owner's exploit hardworking, underpaid employees and be rewarded with a reality show.

Doesn't matter what she signed, tips CANNOT be taken by the employer, per the law, PERIOD.

These people are evidently just looking for their 15 minutes of fame and nothing more. I totally agree with Gregg's comments. Who really cares about this place. I live in Scottsdale and never even heard of this place before.

in our world today you are not promoted for being a good worker, you are not given respect for being polite.


seemingly good people get curbstomped out of the way while the slimy dirty people get promoted simply for having the ability to be slime.

If they get a show it will last as long as one the Palin shows. Only news I want about them is that they closed their doors and Samy is deported.

Where do they get off thinking they need to run a restaurant differently from ever other restaurant in history. They must be the biggest narcissists in history.

The contract is about the most hilarious document I've ever laid eyes on.

Sounds like she's certifiable. But, is she a danger to herself or others?

Next up, Amy and her illegal immigrant husband explain that it is OK to pay less than minimum wage as long as their employees agreed to it as part of their 20 rules.

Just deport him and send his crazy wife with him

Didn't these two already have their 15 minutes of fame (or infamy)? Can't these two just go away??

Yikes!!  This video must be from the Bouzaglos trying to do their own PR.  Only in their delusional little minds would a video of an employer arguing with an employee in front of customers be regarded as  a good thing.. and don't get me started on that illegal and unenforceable contract!  

Yikes!

As a general rule I try not to say negative things on any social media site. That said, the character that these two people have shown towards their employees is inexcusable, especially given both of their sordid pasts. I wish these two absolutely no success.

At this point she's just trying to get a reality series. I hope she doesn't get it.

@Janine Szabo Hill especially since we now know knives and any cooking utensils were not used by this place since it was all pre-ordered

@Jeanne Donnelly And you don't think the Palin family is now swimming in money?

they sold out, the sad thing is that in today's world you get to sell out simply for being a douche.

@awlong86 I bet I could do that easily. Talking those two bipedal turds into taking me in would be a cinch. And I could tell the tale, too. Sounds so tempting. Can you imagine how much fun it could be to act as the undercover chronicler for these two kooks? I'd work there for two weeks or so, keep a diary of the daily psychosis show, and let Amy and Smarmy, er, Sami, in on the big reveal during my last shift. Heck, I'm doing it. Hope they're hiring. Stay tuned.

@Eric Manch Don't worry.  It's not likely.  Just for starters, they're still under contract with FOX.  FOX won't make a show which makes religious Republicans look that bad.

@mr.phx She's been working at another local restaurant since she was fired from ABC.  After the "Kitchen Nightmares" airing, she started making LOTS of tips, as you might expect.
