Looks like Gordon Ramsey killed off another one.

LOCKED DISCUSSION

It seems a second chef that has appeared on one of Gordon Ramsey's shows has committed suicide.

Here is a link to the story. http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/...

How would you like to carry that baggage around?

  1. 3 years after the show and you're laying this on Ramsey? Please!!

      This is pretty sad. As I recall, the guy actually came away from the show looking pretty good. His problems were minor compared some of the other chefs featured.

    2. Besides being 3 years later as FarFar noted, click thru the link to the full story at the NY Post and it quotes people as saying the restaurant was doing well.

        That's exactly what I was going to mention - the Fox link doesn't have the whole story - the NY Post does: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/nd...
        ~~~~~~~~~
        In part, the story notes:

        "In fact, patrons yesterday said the eatery had been thriving.

        "The place is really doing well -- the parking lot is packed on weekends," said a woman who works at the tanning salon next door.

        Another salon worker, Evelina Grzymala, 22, said Cerniglia was grateful to Ramsey for helping him turn his business around."

        "[Cerniglia] said Ramsey was intense but that he turned out to be a nice guy, that in the end, he helped him out," Grzymala recalled.

        So I'm not seeing, Hank, how GR is supposed to be "carrying that baggage around", especially since GR hadn't been there in several years. Come ON.

        Oh - and can people PLEASE learn that Ramsay spells his last name with an "say" at the end - NOT an "sey"? Even the writers of the NY Post article have it spelled correctly at first, and THEN it's misspelled when quoting some of the business neighbors, as shown above. Gah!

      2. This is just another example of the media creating sensationalism. Honestly, do you think Ramsey and this guy became BFFs and stayed in close contact after their stint on the show?

        Prolly not. The guy had problems and, while I'm sure Ramsey wasn't a bright spot in is life, those problems are probably what got the best of him.

        My heart goes out to his family.

        1. I seriously doubt that they took their own lives just because of Gordon Ramsey. I'm sure Gordon feels bad, but he's not responsible for their deaths. Your title is simply uncalled for & so is the last line. Gordon did not kill these people and why should he carry around "that baggage" especially when he was trying to help one of them?

          Suicide is the result of a culmination of many things. It's hard for people who haven't ever been depressed or suicidal to understand & no-one knows what that final straw may be.
