Anthony Bourdain's 11-year-old daughter performed in a concert just days after her father died of an apparent suicide in France. The legendary food icon's ex-wife Ottavia posted a photo on Instagram of Ariane writing, "Out little girl had her concert today".
The picture showed Ariane clutching onto a microphone dressed head to toe in black, with studded leather knee high boots, which her mum revealed Anthony had bought for her. "When she was a very little girl if she wanted to eat pasta with butter everyday that was fine with me, but what else was being eaten at the table was often very interesting and to my surprise and delight she would often reach for a sardine or an anchovy".
In an open letter published by The Hollywood Reporter, McGowan writes, "Sitting across from me is the remarkable human and fearless survivor, Asia Argento, who has been through more than most could stand, and yet stand she does".
"We are asking you to be better, to look deeper, to read and learn about mental illness, suicide and depression before you make it worse for survivors by judging that which we do not understand, that which can never fully be understood", she says.
'I hope you are having a good trip, wherever you are'.
CNN confirmed the news of Bourdain's death, saying the TV host was found unresponsive Friday morning by friend and chef Eric Ripert.
Navarro previously opened about his mother's murder at the hands of an estranged boyfriend when he was just 15 years old. Even after the couple split, the family remained exceptionally close, with Bourdain often posting pictures of him with Ottavia and Ariane, though he often hid his daughter's face in an effort to protect her from the spotlight he occupied so effortlessly.
Bourdain and Busia-Bourdain married in 2007.
Anthony Bourdain's girlfriend responds to his death
We here at Food52 are heartbroken to have lost such a talent today , one who's taught us so much over the years. We're working on a more detailed remembrance of Anthony Bourdain , involving you (the community).
This is the first time his ex, whom he divorced in 2016, has spoken out.
Italian actress Asia Argento and United States singer and actress Rose McGowan, who both accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, took part in a march organized by "Non Una Di Meno" (Me Too) movement on March 8, 2018 as part of the International Women's Day in Rome.
In the days following Bourdain's death, mourners have flocked to Brasserie Les Halles, the now-shuttered NY restaurant where he once served as executive chef. Local authorities confirmed that the cause of death was suicide by hanging.
"Anthony gave all of himself in everything that he did", she wrote. He was my love, my my protector.
The restaurant, which permanently closed about a year ago, served as the setting for numerous stories Bourdain shared in his first book, Kitchen Confidential. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much.
"I write these truths because I have been asked to".
