Amy’s Baking Company Cancels On Kitchen Nightmares And Dr Phil

February 26, 2014 01:30 PM by Stephanie Gustafson


Kitchen Nightmares fans are ecstatic about the return of Amy’s Baking Company. Problem is, the long-awaited sequel appears to have been postponed. Even worse, a promising Dr. Phil episode featuring Samy and Amy Bouzaglo is also on the chopping block. What gives?

The continued Yelp and Facebook drama surrounding Amy’s Baking Company has kept Kitchen Nightmares fans satisfied as they wait for the return of Gordon Ramsay. Unfortunately, it looks like viewers will be kept waiting for at least another week or two. Despite an earlier FOX announcement claiming that Kitchen Nightmares would return on February 28th, viewers have noted that the episode has disappeared from local TV listings.

This is not the only switch-up involving Samy and Amy Bouzaglo. The two were supposed to join Dr. Phil for a candid chat this afternoon, but this has also been postponed. Instead, an episode entitled “A Lying, Cheating, Violent Husband or a Wife’s False Accusations?” is set to take the place of our favorite crazy restaurateurs.

Although a rep for Kitchen Nightmares told Biz Journals that a scheduling change was to blame, disappointed viewers remain unconvinced. Some wonder if rumors of Samy’s impending deportation could be coming into play, with FOX possibly choosing to put the show on the back burner until the current legal drama is cleared up.

Samy and Amy Bouzaglo have yet to address these developments on Twitter. Instead, they’re focused on sharing admittedly beautiful cake photos. The dynamic duo still boasts a huge following of avowed haters, but they’ve replaced their infamous all caps rants with nearly civil responses — including the following gem: “You are evil and not welcome here.” Although she failed to speak up via social media, Amy did email the AZ Central News an update. “Unfortunately right now we really can not say anything. But we can say that they have begun to realize that they have underestimated my husband and I, and our unwillingness to allow them to exploit us is becoming very clear.”

Why do you think FOX decided to postpone the Kitchen Nightmares premiere? Did Samy and Amy put their feet down and scare off Gordon Ramsay? We doubt it. Sound off in the comments section below!

    Maybe there wasn’t enough hubbub about the show and needed more time to advertize the train wreck they are. I just saw the first version of it and now want to see the follow up. TRAIN WRECK and rubber neck! :P

    These 2 jokers are the worst sort. Amy is insane & her husband is a wimp who can’t stand up to her. He knows her cooking is horrible but what happened to his balls? I’ve been to their restaurant & the baked goods are fab but the dinners are a disaster. She should stay with the baking & give up “home-cooked” meals. It’s no wonder Chef Ramsey gave up on them. Nobody I know will ever go in there again. Servers find another job where you’ll be appreciated.

    After seeing this episode, instead of criticizing, I was left believing that something happened to this woman earlier in her life, maybe while growing up. I know nothing of her life, but for anyone to be that irrationally defensive is evidence that here is something deeper going on there.

    I’m not sure there’s any reasoning for the delay beyond “it’s Fox.” This isn’t the first time they’ve postponed starting a season of Kitchen Nightmares. They bumped an earlier season’s premiere before by a few weeks, at least once. I think it’s happened more than once, but it’s a bit foggy to me.

    The Dr. Phil stuff is obviously just reactionary.

    The lady needs Prozac. She is a nut case and her husband is a wimp. Do not put them back on tv. Put them in a crazy house

    Odds are Fox does want to have gordon walk away saying his usual “wow it took a lot but maybe they can do it” only to have a report 2 days later that sami’s been shipped off to iceland.Considering the stuff he confessed to, I’m shocked the IRA hasn’t been going over his books.

    This was a very strange pair. Gordon did the right thing by walking away. You have to have a person that is on the same planet to understand what the problem is. There were too many issues with this pair. They really need Dr Phil.

    Wow!I think the Dr. Phil episode was postponed because he couldn’t help them either. Those two are psycho! Lock her ass up and just drop him in another country, I do not care which one. Any that will actually take him is fine with me. But preferably one that has many man eating animals roaming around.

    I just had one of the best pizzas in my life over there and their establishment was almost as beautiful as she was.

    Don’t let the haters win!

    The owners of this restaurant had all of this planned from the beginning. He is an old man who keeps saying he has money. He was and is in trouble with the IRS and immigration because of his past criminal behavior, and all of a sudden, he marries a prostitute in Vegas. They went on TV to show the IRS and Immigration that the marriage is legitimate. He told her he had money, and she is such a gold-digger (like every prostitute), that she believed everything he said. She thought she had found what every Vegas prostitute is looking for: a half-dead old man with money who will get her out of the business and give her whatever she thinks she is entitled to. He convinced her to marry him, and in exchange, he bought the restaurant, paid for all of her plastic surgery, buys all of her drugs and everything else she wants. It is quite evident that these two are drug users. Their irrational, over-the-top behavior is typical, text-book behavior of drug addicts. Their reactions to situations are not appropriately related to the situation, and are often way off base. She really should have stayed a prostitute in Vegas, stealing money, and running up debt in other people’s names, like she was doing before. Being a prostitute is all she can handle, and that is the level she is on: a lowly, low-life, ignorant, unintelligent, gold-digging, disillusioned, drug-using wh ore. Once the legal battles are over for him, if they ever are, she will drop him like a hot potato, and end up in a drug-addicted heap in a who re house.

    Hey Richard: you must not eat much pizza, or any food that has not been in a dumpster. Are you homeless, one of their friends, or just another drug addict like they are? Those people cannot cook ANYTHING, and it was proven on national television. And to say that the Vegas prostitute is beautiful just proves that you are one of their friends that they begged to post your review. She is a drug-addicted prostitute that has had A LOT of plastic surgery to hide her age and the ravages of drug use and drinking. If you think she is beautiful, you are either blind or on so much crack you can’t see straight.

    ..and not to mention: whoever did her teeth must be someone who makes teeth for horses. They look ridiculous.

    I desperately want to see the followup episode… don’t know what happened to cause it’s cancellation or delay, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t very curious.

    I met Amy and Samy and have to agree with “Truth.” They are hounds from hell. Their food is inedible and they have already used up their 15 minutes of fame many times over. It just makes me sick that because of their BS lawsuits, etc., we have to wait to see Kitchen Nightmares…..and for how long? Forget about them. Let’s see the rest of the season, for crying out loud! Next!

    Hey “Truth”,

    Anyone who spews as much vitriol & hate as you clearly has plenty of their own problems. Anger management & insecurity being two obvious ones.

    Do yourself a favor and get a life.

    They’re insane. I’m sure the only reason they’re still open is because kitchen nightmares made people curious. It’ll be shut down within the next year. She isn’t the type to listen and learn. Let’s just skip their episode and move on

    I have been a restaurant manager for years and have never seen anything like this. I find it hard to believe anyone would be willing to work for those two or be a customer of theirs and take that kind of abuse, they both are in the wrong business. Wow, that’s all I can say, wow!

    Ah the pizza was good, so that means that anyone against stealing tips, assaulting customers, firing a girl for asking a question and abusing her til she cries (“get out, don’t walk away from me”), Screaming at customers, waiting over 2 hours for food, having a turnover of over 100 employees a year…. Anyone thinking that’s bad is just a hater, because you liked your pizza? Brilliant reasoning. *cough*amy*cough*!

    What a horrible experience I had! The elderly man “Sammy” was using the women’s restroom while I was in there and he stunk the place to high heaven and clogged the toilet. He then started cursing & yelling & ordered this poor young waitress to bring a bucket & mop & clean it up! All his clamoring & hollering in loud broken English permeated the restaurant — not to mention the stink — and I was nauseous! The food was disgusting! Undercooked pizza & awful service. AVOID!
