Personal Quote:

I wouldn't wish divorce on my worst enemy. It's just a lousy thing to go through. I disagree with people who say 'oh, its a good time now we can get divorced.' There's no good time to get divorced. It stinks, it's a lousy thing.

Trivia:

Emeril's famous sayings "BAM" and "Kick It Up A Notch" were created as a result of his grueling shoot schedule. He had limited time off from being a New Orleans chef and would fly to New York to film 8 shows per day. Towards the end of the day and after a big meal, the crew would fall asleep. Emeril decided to say BAM with a loud voice to prevent them from falling asleep. See more »
