Rose McGowan: Don’t Blame Asia Argento, Others for Anthony Bourdain’s Death

Bourdain is survived by his 11-year-old daughter, Ariane, and girlfriend, Asia Argento.

When is funeral can finally go ahead it will have been planned by his estranged second wife Ottavia Busia Bourdain, with whom he is said to have maintained a good relationship as she remains his next of kin.

Bourdain, the host of CNN's "Parts Unknown", was found dead on Friday morning in his room at a luxury hotel in the tiny village of Kaysersberg in the Alsace region of northeast France. Local authorities confirmed that the cause of death was suicide by hanging.

Bourdain was born in New York City and raised in Leonia, New Jersey. "She was fantastic. So strong and fearless", Busia-Bourdain wrote. The proud mom could't help gushing over how "strong" and "brave" Ariane is. "She wore the boots you bought her. Hope you are having a good trip, wherever you are".

Argento posted a photo with Bourdain to her page on May 27, and he was interacting with her on social media only four days prior to his death on June 8.

The couple was married in 2007 and separated in 2016 but had not divorced.

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.

This time around, the game is set in Washington D.C., where player selection will have more of an impact in the open-world sequel. Post-launch, the game will see the inclusion of a year's worth of story-driven missions, map expansions, and new modes for free.


Bouquets of flowers, heartfelt notes and moving quotes by Bourdain himself adorned the makeshift memorial outside the eatery.

"Thank you for bringing a respectful view to the people of Palestine, Libya, Iran and more", one note read. "Ariane and Asia, you have all of our love". "You were so loved, the world is not better without you". For readers outside the USA, visit Suicide.org or Befrienders Worldwide for global resources you can use to find help.

Her son was a "lover of people of all kinds" who genuinely was the person he appeared to be on TV, she added. I'm not the same person. Julien Schroeder, the owner and chef of La Petite Venise, said Friday that he served the typical regional meal to Bourdain and Eric Ripert, co-owner of New York's famed Le Bernardin, while cameras rolled.

McGowan also wrote of Argento and Bourdain's "free relationship", saying they had "instant chemistry" and that Argento had been "her rock during her hardships of this past year".

At the time of his death, Bourdain was in a relationship with Asia Argento.

"He didn't disguise anything or take on any act of persona", Gladys said of Anthony, who had been open about his personal and financial struggles during his life.
