Holy shizz! How can this be??
Of all the power couples in the world, we'd never imagine Amy and Samy Bouzaglo getting split up — and NOT due to Samy getting deported!!
As co-owners of the infamous Amy's Baking Company from Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, the two have had to fight with social media being on their asses over little things like 'not giving their wait staff tips' or being 'abusive.' Little did they know that Samy, a native Moroccan, was facing deportation due to a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement case to revoke his residency status!
And guess what? Samy has now reportedly been ordered deported for failing to disclose a criminal past in Europe decades ago!
That'll do it!
He's appealing, of course — and here's what Amy had to say:
“He’s never broken the laws. He’s only obeyed, respected the law of America. He loves this country and he fights for this country."
Fights for it how?
Anyway, this isn't the last we've heard from them on television, at least. Kitchen Nightmares' producers took Ramsay back for a followup episode due at the end of Feb.
As a side note, finding staff after all the accusations has been hard — but they'd never admit it. In fact, they only employ one person: a dishwasher. Because Amy says they don't need anyone else.
“My husband and I don’t need anybody to work this restaurant. We don’t depend on anybody. Sometimes he doesn’t come if he’s sick, we can’t force him. We’re not going to break his leg because he’s not coming to work.”
We wonder if Samy's appeals will be fruitful!
We'll just have to wait in see — but maybe we'll get an international edition of Amy's Baking Company someday!
