Samy and Amy Bouzaglo
America's favorite restaurant owners Amy and Samy Bouzalgo of Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale will once again face off with Gordon Ramsay on tonight's season six premiere of Kitchen Nightmares. The two-hour episode will air from 7 to 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox, featuring "never-before-seen footage" and "an exclusive interview with Amy and Samy" according to the network.

We'll be live tweeting during the show, so be sure to join us on Twitter at @ChowBellaPHX.

The Kitchen Nightmares episode, "Return to Amy's Baking Company," will follow up on what's happened since the first time Ramsay visited the restaurant about a year ago. In the now-infamous episode, the Bouzaglos were shown yelling at customers, mistreating employees, and arguing with chef Ramsay. In the end the shout-y celebrity chef walked out on the couple and their restaurant before completing the makeover process.

Amy and Samy also appeared in an episode of the Dr. Phil show earlier this week. The couple answered questions about their behavior on social media and faced one of their online critics.

"We have to move forward and be positive," Amy said during the show, though it remains to be seen if the restaurant owner is sincere about turning over a new leaf.

The couple also got a few words of advice from Howard Bragman, a public relations professional and television personality. Bragman's main tip to the owners was that they stop responding to negative feedback -- uh, duh -- but we have our doubts they'll be able to follow through.

"If someone comes to attack us, we're like snakes," Amy Bouzaglo said during the show. "You don't poke a snake in the desert."

I just watched Kitchen Nightmares about Amy's... those people are NUTS! This woman is a "plastic self centered"  BITCH! I don't think that she can handle the "truth" if it were to bit it on her ass. He isn't mutch better, a man with an attitude and wrapped around her tight little finger. I only hope that EVERYONE would be smart enough to stay away from that place and let them go belly up! Talk about "FREAKS", they live in a cartoon and I found the joke cartoons in the show funny and more enjoyable then the owners...  So to anyone who takes the time to read my comment............... "STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM THAT PLACE" she is NUTS!

I saw Kitchen Nightmares “revisit” to Amy’s Baking Company. As much as I found the episode last year “great reality TV’ (that we all know the only reality consists of the letters spelling the word), and it was a rehash of the same with some “unseen footage” and then an interview with the Bouzaglos visibly drained and defending their position. This time I was less amused. I then caught Dr. Phil, that I never, ever watch unless there is some clip that goes viral from the show. And here Dr McGraw did a really good job,. He himself stated that he gets hate mail all the time and ignores it.He also stated that they do tell all contestants on these shows that they will edit as they see fit and that they do not tell the participants how to behave.The Bouzaglos respond that they have the need “to show the world” that they will not be bullied. They did bring in a “yelper” and they were able to have a “civilized” discussion and Dr Phil even mentions that they catered on their own a meal for the crew of his show and even though he did not try it , he stated that the crew all said it was great. McGraw then brings on a PR expert that essentially advises them to ignore prank calls and trolls, concentrate on local media and emit coupons to bring in new clientele. Samy almost has a coronary and immediately says no way and something to the effect that “you eat and you pay” their justified prices. Dr Philgoes over that advice and contrary to what Samy thinks, coupons do bring in people and could entice them to actually concentrate on the food rather than them and rebuild a clientele. Amy blurts out “what do you want me to do rip out the phone and close down?”. At this point had I been Dr Mc Graw, I would have gotten up, told them that they were hopeless and walked off. He did not, all to his credit and simply said that he never said to suspend phone service but to hang up when it was a prank call. In this context the Bouzaglos were not under pressure, were not working, were not being attacked and had an opportunity to truly, if not to better their image, to at least recognize that fueling critics is simply toxic and that when you are a smart business person, you simply respond “I am sorry the food was not up to your expectations. Come back we will make it right or it is on the house”, Clearly, this is not the Bouzaglos style at all. Unfortunately, during the Dr Phil show they undeniably stuck to their position that they were right and within their rights.Thus, in this case, “reality TV’ rang somewhat true.

When is the DEA/FBI going to investigate this money laundering business called Amy's Baking Company, and deport the "gangsta" international drug dealer Samy?

You can get great food lots of places. In this economy you put yourselves on Dr Phil like this? Dumb.

So much good food in this economy...your Dr Phil appearance ensures I won't need to check you out. You don't want to do customer service.

I totally agree with a lot of these posts about Amy & Samy!! Unfortunately, they both need to learn how to speak to people, besides taking criticism, especially from Gordon Ramsey, who I absolutely love!! Every show that he has on T.V. I watch them all!!

If Sammy isn't her father he sure looks old enough to be.  If he isn't her father that explains why he he's such a bobble head to everything she says. 

Debra Stevens

you are both nuts. He is spending a lot of money to take care of a trophy wife. You may have a real pastry talent but other than that zero. Sammy needs to grow some balls and tell you how it really is.That is never going to happen. You two deserve one another

I can't wait to not fucking watch this. I'm also not going to read your shitty article. In fact, one more mention of this shit from you New Times and we're no longer internet friends. I've alteady stopped picking up your paper (since 2007) so letting you go entirely shouldn't be hard at all.

Man am I exhausted from watching that show....lol!  When Amy talks I feel verbally vomited on.  By spewing so much crazy s**t they are 1-fueling the fire of all the so-called "haters", 2- killing any hope of having a successful business, and 3- ruining their reputations.  I hope their 15 minutes of fame lasts longer because when, not if but when, their business closes it's going to be impossible for them to go back out into the workforce.

It's no longer about the food. It's the way these people conduct themselves and treat others!!

What is wrong with these people?  I just want to know why they had Chef Ramsey there to begin with!  Do they not watch Kitchen Nightmares?  Do they not comprehend the concept of the show!  DAH!  They will be out of business soon and they have no one to blame but themselves!  I don't feel bad for them, I felt bad for the employees and for Chef Ramsey!  I'm glad you walked away from Amy and Sammy, they are not deserving of your help!  Keep up the good work Chef Ramsey!  Love your show!

She is insane! They both are! You weren't in a war with Ramsey you stupida**! He was trying to help you! If you don't need customers, fine, they don't need you either. And, bad idea saying "come tell us to our faces." My guess is you will get your wish, & they might not be little waitresses that you can boss around.

My name is Amy and I jokingly tell my friends to Call me Crazy Amy but the Amy at this place is crazy!!!!!!! . I watched this show for the first time ever ' before I heard it went viral and that AMY Chick is off her Delusion Rocker!

Amy is such a BITCH!  She should shut her god damn mouth long enough to listen to what others are trying to tell you!   BOYCOTT the restaurant!  They're not nice people and don't deserve the respect of others or people's hard earned money!

I just watched the episode in question and I honestly believe that Crazy Amy and her loud mouthed husband need to have several seats and seek serious psychiatric help as therr is something seriously wrong with both of them.

ok now I am thoroughly disgusted with her, watching the show and she commented about people posting, saying " they have a severe case of tourettes. To the people that suffer from this , I apologize on her behalf because she definitely doesn't have the class to do so. Pathetic!!!

@mvfaber  Just DON'T EAT THERE and there would not be any guessing!

People like you are the worst kind, worse than these two owners.

As suke said, he is from Israel and she seems to be American. An Israeli and American working together and saying that the world is against them, sounds familiar.


What I wrote would be true if not for the fact that everyone is different and there are crazy people in all types of religions, nationalities, ethnicities, etc...


By your name, I assume you're Latin, which makes your comment even sadder because Latin people have also been discriminated against.

@marebare0069 They originally had Chef Ramsey there because they were CONVINCED that he would give them nothing but glowing reviews and tell them and the world that the bloggers really WERE full of crap. When that didn't go down as planned (LMFAO) they didn't want to hear anything from him. I'm sure they think that Gordon himself orchestrated all the negative Yelp and Reddit reviews. Yeah, I believe they're that delusional.

@mvfaber @dragonlotus  I'm sure it is theft.  Check out the law, if the servers take those clowns to the Labor Department they will have to pay a large amount of back pay.
