Amy Baking Co. -- the scandal that will not die.

Firegoat Nov 16, 2013 06:19 AM

Hot on the heels of news that Kitchen Nightmares was filming a follow up in crazy town to kick off the new season, now this -- an alleged upcoming appearance on Dr. Phil so they can explain that they are not crazy. They are the good guys.

Take is with a grain of salt, of course. And, of course, they still say a reality show is in the works.

    They expect that charlatan quack "doctor" to pronounce them mentally healthy? His PhD is from the bottom of the barrel school of the Texas university system.

      I don't believe he has a PhD but an Ed.D.

        Wrong, according to Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phil_McG...

        He has a PhD but his license to practice expired ten years ago. But the ruling was that his show is entertainment not the practice of psychology, so he's good to go.

        Have there been any more developments with this couple? Anyone know if their place is still open?

          Didn't Amy land the roll of 'nurse Ratchet' in the movie re-do?
          Talk about the patients running the asylum. LOL

          Looks like they recently made the list of the country's worst bosses, coming in at #6.

          In the article she also says they were recently on the Dr. Phil show....

          And then Amy's comes out with employee testimonials of how great they are to work for. Looks like hostage videos.....

            They need to go out of business and get lost. They're clearly trying to whore it up for media attention and fishing around for a reality show of their own. Jerks like this don't deserve to make a bunch of money off of their terrible attitudes and mistreatment of employees. Don't celebrate and reward these people for their nonsense.
