Anthony Bourdain to Kate Spade deaths: The celebrity lives depression claimed

Meal time Anthony Bourdain dined out at Wistub La Petite Venise a few days before his death

Some noted that Bourdain's death came just days after the suicide of fashion designer Kate Spade, also a great shock to those who knew her. Bourdain's own mother, Gladys Bourdain, a longtime editor at The New York Times, said she had no indication that her son might have been thinking of suicide.

He always seemed to me to be a sort of Johnny Cash character of the restaurant world: a rock "n" roll figure who lived hard for a long time and did his share of fucking up.

"Every time we flew through Atlanta and had an hour between flights, I would get a look from him". Maybe he found a little redemption somewhere along the way.

Bourdain was born in New York City and grew up in New Jersey.

More than simply producing shows on food, Bourdain connected people of different cultures through his storytelling. And for his travels to explore the world's cuisines.

Bourdain himself didn't deny he had an enviable career.

"Thank you for bringing a respectful view to the people of Palestine, Libya, Iran and more". It's an insignificant thing, it's a small thing, it's a hamburger, but it's not a good one.

At the end of the episode, Bourdain sat in a room with other recovering heroin addicts and spoke to them about how he got past it.

His instincts and his background led him to identify with the underdogs of the world. I don't remember many details, but it didn't happen because our schedules conflicted.

Anthony Bourdain, a gifted storyteller and writer who took CNN viewers around the world, has died. Later in the episode, he confronted an Israeli settler about his thoughts on some of the ugly racism he encountered while shooting the episode.

'There is no element that makes us suspect that someone came into the room at any moment, ' he said, adding that a medical expert had concluded that there were no signs of violence on Bourdain's body.

Likewise, it's clear that if people can find help the first time that they consider suicide, they are more likely to recover and never make another attempt.

"It was like they were all struck by lightning", Speisser told People.

Bourdain was also attributed for encouraging Asia Argento, his girlfriend, to go public with allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

"If you're from a marginalized, dehumanized community, you know what Anthony Bourdain meant", tweeted Mohammad Alsaafin.

"I was surprised and sad when I heard about (Bourdain's) death", Nguyen Thi Nga, co-owner of Bun Cha Huong Lien, told AFP.

Bourdain, whose career catapulted him from cooking at New York's top restaurants to dining in Vietnam with President Barack Obama, was found dead in a hotel room in Strasbourg, France, where he had been working on an upcoming episode of his program, CNN said in a statement.

"We need to ramp up the funding for suicide prevention efforts across the board, triage the flat-funding and extend the hand of the federal government to the communities, caregivers and families coping with such a painful problem", Schumer said.
