Just days after her beloved dad took his own life, Anthony Bourdain's daughter, Ariane, put on a "strong" face and performed.
In a post on her Instagram account, Bourdain's ex-wife and mother of Ariane, Ottavia Busia, shared a message in his honour. "She was awesome. So strong and fearless", Ottavia captioned her Instagram post. She wore the boots you bought her.
As much as social media has been a huge support for me, I do every now and then get people blaming me, straight up blaming me - for him dying, for me not saving him, for you know, mistreating him...
Bourdain and Italian actress and director Argento began dating two years ago, and he became one of her fiercest defenders and #MeToo supporters after she joined McGowan in coming forward to publicly accuse producer Harvey Weinstein of sexually assaulting them.
Her son was a "lover of people of all kinds" who genuinely was the person he appeared to be on TV, she added.
Following Anthony Bourdain death by suicide, fans and loved ones immediately paid public tributes to the larger-than-life personality, with statements coming right away from his chef colleagues including best friend Eric Ripert, President Barack Obama, and his girlfriend Asia Argento.
Actress Rose McGowan has released a powerful letter addressing suicide and mental health after the death of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain. "They won't be shipping his remains back for a couple of days because of formalities", Bourdain's mom, Gladys, told the New York Post.
Bourdain said that he never saw himself as a father but the two decided after some time together to give it a try, and Ottavia was soon pregnant.
"I see Elizabeth Taylor carrying on filming Cat on a Hot Tin Roof despite her love, her husband, dying in a plane crash".
Bourdain met Argento in 2016 while shooting an episode of Parts Unknown in Rome.
"She stood up to her monster rapist and now she has to stand up to yet another monster, suicide".
"They laughed, they loved and he was her rock during the hardships of this a year ago", she said. "My thoughts are with his family", she wrote. I write these truths because I have been asked to.
