The wait is finally over, folks.

Later this afternoon Amy and Samy Bouzaglo of Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale will return to television, this time in an episode of the Dr. Phil show, which will air on KTVK 3 at 3 p.m. According to the Dr. Phil website, during the show the couple will come face to face with one of their "online bullies" and get some (much needed) public relations advice from public relations pro, Howard Bragman.

Here's the episode description from the Dr. Phil website:

Kitchen Nightmares' Most Controversial Couple on the Defensive!

Scottsdale restaurant owners Amy and Sammy became instantly infamous last May, after they say they were depicted as villains on the reality TV show Kitchen Nightmares. The couple was seen berating staff, customers and even host Gordon Ramsey, who ultimately threw his hands up in the air and walked out. But Amy and Sammy claim all the drama was manufactured for television and insist that their character was misrepresented. They say that since their episode aired, they've been threatened and bullied by bloggers and reviewers online -- and as a result, both their business and their marriage have suffered. Dr. Phil has some tough questions for the couple about their actions on the reality show -- was it smoke and mirrors for TV or just bad behavior? Then, Amy and Sammy come face to face with one of their cyber-reviewers, Michael, who says that the couple needs to stop picking fights with their critics and start taking ownership in the situation. How do they respond? Plus, Dr. Phil calls on public relations expert Howard Bragman to give Sammy and Amy advice for changing their image -- and getting their business back on track. What does he say they must do? And, will they be open to it?

And don't forget the couple will also appear in a two-hour season premier of Kitchen Nightmares this Friday, April 11 from 9 to 11 p.m. ET/PT on Fox. The first hour of the episode will focus on the couple and how their restaurant has been doing in the last year since the original Amy's Baking Company episode aired. The show will include appearances from Phoenix Business Journal staffers Hayley Ringle and Adam Kress, who visited the restaurant but were kicked out after complaining about fruit flies in their drinks.

Ok. Let's go on Dr. Phil and complain that we weren't introduced to the world by Oprah, and then say we are not media whores, lol. They're both mental cases, and IF they'd had any talent as restaurant owners, they wouldn't be spending so much energy on ridiculous attack tactics to get attention. Go back to Israel if all shop owners act like that. Good riddance. I'm sure you can keep up the plastic surgery over there.

They are so completely DELUSIONAL. It is hilarious. I love that they say no one has ever complained... then scream about how people keep complaining.

@katie2403 How did I miss all this drama.  lol  I watch kitchen nightmare and I missed that one both on TV and all the hoopla since.  Just sat down to watch tv and thought WOW!  Out of all these post, there is only one person that supports that Pycho Amy.  I am not sure what Sammy see in her.

@special43mh @katie2403Yeah, one person who had to post twice, lol. I watched the (cringe) Dr. Phil show out of total curiosity, but what a scary couple!  And not just the way they look - they're from outer space! She said she was a snake and if you attack her, she'll bite you and "take you down".  What a freak, lol. But good entertainment I suppose, until it gets boring after about 15 minutes.
