Anthony Bourdain Dead At 61 After Suicide

Food TV Icon Anthony Bourdain was found dead Friday morning in a Paris, France hotel.  Anthony was in Paris filming an episode of CNN's Parts Unknown and his close friend Eric Ripert found him unresponsive in his hotel room Friday morning of an apparent suicide.

CNN released a statement regarding death, "It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain.  His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time."

While Anthony Bourdain doesn't have a show on Food Network, he was often outspoken about personalities on the network such as Guy Fieri and Paula Deen.  He had quite an impact on everybody in the food world including people on Food Network.  Statements were made by pretty much everybody in the food industry and some of them are below:

It should be interesting to see what CNN does with the footage that they already filmed for Parts Unknown.  RIP Anthony.
