Anthony Bourdain Dead at 61 | Apparently Suicide

Beloved chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain is dead of an apparent suicide.

Bourdain was found dead in his hotel room in France … according to CNN. The network says Bourdain’s friend Eric Ripert discovered the body Friday morning. He had hanged himself.

They were on location, shooting an episode of his award winning show, ‘Parts Unknown.’

Bourdain made his name first as a chef … and then an author. His famous book, “Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly,” was published in 2000, and its enormous success helped him jump into TV.

His first show was “A Cook’s Tour” on the Food Network — but the series ‘No Reservations’ on the Travel Channel was his breakout hit.

In 2013, ‘Parts Unknown’ premiered on CNN, and it immediately won a Peabody Award.

Anthony’s suicide comes just 3 days after Kate Spade took her own life by hanging herself in her NYC home.

Bourdain was 61.
