11-Year-Old Daughter of Anthony Bourdain Shows Strength After Dad's Death

Since the chef's tragic passing, filmmaker Argento has been blamed by online trolls after TMZ reported that she was pictured holding hands with another man in Rome days before his death.

Argento shared a statement about Bourdain on Friday, hours after his death became public.

In a long statement Monday, McGowan, 44, said blaming anyone is misplaced given the power of depression. Anthony's internal war was his war, but now she's been left on the battlefield to take the bullets.

She added: "It is in no way fair or acceptable to blame her or anyone else, not even Anthony". "She was fantastic. So strong and courageous", Ottavia captioned her Instagram post. Argento, like McGowan, has claimed that she was raped by Harvey Weinstein.

Argento, 42, asked that her privacy and that of Bourdain's grieving family be respected.

As tributes continue to pour in for celebrity chef, author and TV personality Anthony Bourdain, the question filling social media feeds continues to be: "Why did he do it, when he seemed to have it all?" Both were filming an upcoming episode of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. Many of these people who lost their "friend" are wanting to lash out and blame. You must not sink to that level.

If someone you know exhibits warning signs of suicide, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention advises that you do not leave the person alone, call a prevention hotline, and take the person to an emergency room or seek help from a medical or mental health professional.

Bourdain leaves behind a daughter, 11-year-old Ariane.

While G-7 members have been sharing concerns over North Korea, disputes with the United States over trade have been escalating. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has vowed retaliatory action next month over USA tariffs on steel and aluminum.

Asia Argento has been spotted for the first time since her boyfriend Anthony Bourdain died from an apparent suicide.

"I also do feel I have things to live for", Bourdain told the magazine in February. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. His decision, not hers.

Authorities said the cook, writer and host of the CNN series "Parts Unknown" killed himself Friday in a luxury hotel in France's eastern Alsace region. His cause of death was revealed to be suicide by hanging.

"Not a one, ever", she told the morning program. "Your love will find you again".

And if that's not enough to get the tears flowing yet again, we don't know what is.

"Anthony I am so mad at you", McGowan wrote. I have a message for those considering suicide as a solution to a temporary problem. "Asia is a free bird, and so was Anthony". "We needed you. Please come back".

Meanwhile, tears streamed down the face of Argento's fellow prominent member of the #MeToo movement, Rose McGowan, as she opened up about the shocking suicide.
