Anthony Bourdain Hung Himself with His Hotel Bathrobe Belt

Ehhh, not good to know. Anthony Bourdain, host of a bunch of food shows, killed himself last week. Suicide is always no fun to talk about. Ironic because the best thing to combat depression is to have someone talk to you about it (this is advice from Chrissy Teigen).

While we knew Bourdain hung himself, now we know how.

Prosecutor Christian de Rocquigny [from France’s Alsace region] told The Associated Press on Saturday that the famed chef and host of the CNN series “Parts Unknown” used the belt of his hotel bath robe to commit suicide on Friday.

Kate Spade hung herself with her scarf. Now, Bourdain with his bathrobe belt. Also, I thought celebs only used bathrobes for unwanted sexual advances (see Harvey Weinstein).

Still no idea when services for Bourdain will be held. France still hasn’t released the body. Gladys Bourdain, Anthony’s mom, said:

“They won’t be shipping his remains back for a couple of days because of formalities…”

What’s with the delay? Here’s one word that’ll help: Uber. Uber that body back.
