    After a rather scathing episode of Kitchen's Nightmares,



    Amy's Baking Company has been suffering tons of backlash on Reddit and Yelp, and for good reason, stealing tips from waiters among other things. The owners, well they aren't going down without a fight.

    Aside from poking a bear so to speak, I'm not understanding this drama?

    • The owner is the only one who can; Pour wine, handle money, handle the cash register.
    • The other owner thinks everyone is against her, and don't know good food.
    • She blatantly attacks customers who find issues with her food.
    • If someone complains about the food they get kicked out.
    • They are both nuts. Got married 5 months after meeting.
    • She thinks her cats are her children. (She speaks cat.)
    • They don't let the waiters get tips. (Paid hourly.)
    • Pizza dough was so raw.
    • Burger was soggy, dripping out. (And I use that term lightly.) Juices.
    • Ravioli was confusing.
    • Salmon burger overcooked.

    No way I'm watching the second part. Stomach's already upset.

    On the positive side of the restaurant, that Katy girl is beautiful.

    Is this theme restaurant? It looks like a pretty entertaining place to go. I'd like to just sit at the bar sipping a beer and watch the fireworks

    If she had good cakes but shirt everything else, why not open a cake shop? Oh right; she hates it when people try to help her... also that episode was wild. I mean does this really exist or does this mean they are scripting the show now?

    Well... this got interesting.

    A user on Reddit suggests that this is actually a front for a money laundering scheme.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Wow. Finished the second episode. This place is terrible. Someone asked on their facebook page if they're taking reservations and the owner called her a slut and told her to go away.

    ERROR!
    I knew this was all a dirty business plan the way he was so overly protective over what came in and came out plus that he didn't want the cops over, but I couldn't put it together, it all makes sense now. Erasing traces of dirty money, of course!

    People who watched the episode should all read this, it's so revealing.

    I actually think Samy was willing to change, at least try. When Ramsay said "50 people had been fired in the last year", Amy says that's not true, and Samy said it isn't true, it was actually 100 or so. But I actually think it's Amy calling all the shots and everything. Granted she's a fairly young woman still, and Samy is dustier than a Wii, he perhaps knows he can't get any better. And that whole police thing, I think Samy knew they weren't going to get anywhere or win, it was just a bluff/scare to get the money (which they didn't even fucking have anything).

    Speaking of which though, the one girl that got fired/quit, she got a new job she said on her twitter. Working at a golf resort, which last I checked, Golf Resorts pay better, you get tips, and you're in a much better environment lol.
