Autumn isn't official until the first leaf falls from the shit-show tree, which means the now-infamous Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale is back in the news.

Following up on the best/worst episode ever of Fox's Kitchen Nightmares, in which Gordon Ramsay walks out on high-strung owners Amy and Samy Bouzaglo, show producers have returned to the city where it all began to tape a follow-up special on Amy's Baking Company's impact on the community.

"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.

Taping for the special took place on Tuesday, September 24. The producer could not say when the episode would air on Fox.

In the meantime, more "reality" shit-show fodder continues at Amy's Baking Company. According to the restaurant's Facebook page (the real one), Amy's is currently hiring/casting/humiliating servers and bussers for the "upcoming filming of our Reality TV show!" Interested?

I think that this restaurant is a perfect place to try out their new dish "Puppy Paws" - real puppy feet!  "You've always said you love puppy's so much you could eat them, well now's your chance - fried, backed or boiled.  YUM YUM!"

A few questions: Why are they even still in biz? Why isn't their 15 minutes of fame long-since over? And why doesn't Phoenix New Times give someone who actually deserves and needs it the free publicity?

I feel for you guys in Scottsdale actually, especially as Samy just recently posted this little gem on the Yelp page to a review (name edited on the user out of respect for the reviewer):

"Hey K-,

It is people like you that give Yelp a bad name by posting Fake, , slanderous lies.If you are going to be a turd go lay in the yard.And BTW it would have been impossible for you to have the Salmon Burger.Remember, there are consequences for everything........"

It's the fact he says "there are consequences for everything..." and that he doesn't say WHY the person couldn't have the burger. On a more interesting note, there suddenly for a five star there IS mention of french fries in their menu for $5 more with it. 

This is also the FIRST attack on a reviewer in a while so it adds to my question of WHY start now?

It's bad enough they are now banning folks from their facebook page for questioning anything they do. I myself was banned for challenging the legality of this reality TV series they're producing and if it's in violation of their FOX contract (which it probably is as most folks can't use their publicity from a show for a period of one year). Didn't attack them, didn't bad mouth them - NOTHING to warrant it.

IMHO the business is helping other businesses nearby - the theater, the sandwich place in the same strip. But itself? - well, it's become obvious that this business is losing more money than gaining from the experience, and will most likely shut down. That's why they hope this pilot for their reality show gets picked up and why all the PR.

I refuse to read your article let alone watch some stupid ass show with this psycho on it. If you quit reporting on her, maybe she will dry up and blow away.

one of the producers emailed me via Yelp. I didn't go through the interview but this is what they were making :) I put them in touch with Randy L. Walters so I think he may be on it.
