Amy's Baking Co..... they're Baaack... or are they?

Apparently Amy's Baking Co was supposed to be on Dr. Phil this week (Wednesday) and then a Gordon Ramsay revisit to ABC was on the tv schedule for this Friday.... suddenly that has changed.

    Maybe one of Hitler's 'Brown Shirts' got to her?

    1. Ha! I'm glad you posted this.

      1. "Reached for comment Monday, Amy said by e-mail: “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.”"

          Next we'll hear that ABC has done a 'Pawn Stars' routine.
          The PS shop has a line up of tourists every day. The 'Stars' are no longer there. There are cordons that guide the tourists to the PS gift shop area were T-shirts/ball caps/coffee mugs/DVDs etc are for sale.
          The display cases hold junk 'for display' only.
          Amy and her miscreant sugar daddy can sell little plastic 'replica' cakes and 'google-eye' dash board bobble-heads and forget having to 'buy-in' those cakes from Safeways.

            >>>them to exploit us<<<

            That's rich.

              Apparently Amy knows about as much about grammar as does about baking.

            2. The original is re-airing as I watch. Still makes me shake my head...

              1. My brother & sister in olaw live in Scottsdale- I emailed her asking if they'd ever ben here and got no reply, so I'm not sure if the Baking Co is a total valley hissing and byword. Probably, with those in the know, which they are.

                  As of today is ABC still an operating restaurant?

                  1. re: Puffin3

                    Yes - still open and operating. I live in Scottsdale and drive by there frequently.

                2. The ABC Facebook page is still sort of amusing ....

                  1. re: C. Hamster

                    out of the 115K followers, how many do you think are only following for the sole purpose of waiting for the next meltdown?

                    I'm thinking perhaps 114,949.

                    1. re: LindaWhit

                      Based on the commentary I'd guess 114,989

                      Although she is posting pictures of her "supporters" who seem rather dazed and confused by her attention.

                      1. re: C. Hamster

                        She must be taking pics of the stoners in the park if they're dazed and confused.

                        1. re: C. Hamster

                          She's C&Ping them from Walmart flyers.

                    2. I enjoy the British version of "Kitchen Nightmares" but seldom watch an entire episode of the American version. Way too predictable; bad food, neurotic (or, worse, psychopathic) owners, expensive restaurant make-over, new and reduced menu (with a focus on "Sliders"), and then...redemption. When I do sit down for an American episode, I'll usually watch the opening (Gordon's comments on the awful food can sometimes cause me to laugh out loud), and, occasionally, the ending. In spite of myself, I end up hoping the owners manage to succeed (although I think most of the restaurants featured on "Kitchen Nightmares" fail). Not in this particular case, though. In the case of "Amy's Baking Company," I caught various portions of the episode, and the ending. It left me with one thought in mind--- if you're a restaurant owner, and you're stealing tips from your employees, you're a slimebag. And a beneath-contempt thief. Period. You deserve to fail. And, as an afterthought, is selling T-shirts with "Here's Your Pizza...Go F*** Yourself" (I'm paraphrasing here, but I think that's the essence of their "merchandising technique") supposed to win customers back? Incredible.

                      1. Supposedly the loons are on the first episode of the new season. Maybe April 11?

                          A preview on TV confirmed that yes, they're back with Gordon on April 11th.

                          Good grief, I guess one episode wasn't enough!

                          1. re: breadchick

                            Fame whores is what they are. And wallowing in behavioral health disorders. Ramsey is willing to take them on because it makes for high ratings to try to channel crazyass people. I don't blame him, those two are psycho with a capital P. Plus they probably need the money by now.

                        2. Apparently Samy is claiming Gordon sexually harrassed his wife.

                            Good old Samy. GR craps bigger than these mentally insane funny people. They will eventually burn out. GR's law firm gets a hundred 'pending law suits' a day wishing for a 'cash settlement'. YAAAWN.
                            Another time and place baby. Another time and place.

                              Oh that's the dizzy limit. Like he wanted that damaged piece of ***.

                            2. Amy is a batshit crazy fundamentalist freak. Samy looks like a criminal. A match made in hell.

                              1. Actually, most of Gordon Ramsay's shows in the U.S. are a whole lot like pro wrestling, but in a restaurant instead of a ring. People watch to see someone get beat up. In many cases, though, it is deserved. Certainly for Amy's outfit. Still, the drama is staged, much like so-called Reality TV.
