The actress, 42, shared a sweet photo of the pair riding around in a red car in Florence, Italy, which was taken on May 27 — the week before the chef’s death.
In the image, Argento sits behind the wheel while wearing a polka-dot dress. Beside her, Bourdain smiles while holding an opened umbrella, possibly to shield the pair from the sun. At the time, the pair were shooting an episode of Parts Unknown together in the Italian city.
Alongside the image, the actress included a quote from Dante’s Divine Comedy: Inferno,
“Cross the Clintons… get suicided,” Jameson wrote, along with a link to a story about the interview.

In an interview conducted three months before Bourdain’s death but published by Popula on Sunday, Bourdain criticized Bill and Hillary Clinton for how they handled the accusations of sexual harassment that rocked the former president during his time in office.
In the interview, Bourdain — whose girlfriend, actress Asia Argento, is among the numerous women who’ve accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct — called the former president “a piece of s–. Entitled, rapey,
Bourdain’s girlfriend Asia Argento was one of the first women to come forward with accusations of sexual assault by Weinstein. She was dating Bourdain when he was found unresponsive in a hotel room in France last month. In an interview in Popula, which was published posthumously on Sunday evening, Bourdain offered a detailed, explicit description of how the former Hollywood mogul might die.
“My theory of how he goes is, uh, he’s brushing his teeth in a bathroom, he’s naked in his famous bathrobe, which is flapping open, he’s holding his cell phone in one hand because you never know who on the Weinstein board has betrayed him recently, and he’s
“I never knew about this obsession of his. He never told me,” she wrote on social media, sharing a link to the document, which was released earlier this month.
The three-page piece begins with a description of a 2016 episode of Parts Unknown that took place in Buenos Aires, in which Bourdain filmed a therapy session where he said he felt “very isolated” and described his lifestyle as “crushingly lonely.
“It was f—ing monstrous. That would not have flown today,” Bourdain said of President Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky and his and Hillary’s handling of it afterwards.
In an interview in Popula which was published posthumously on Sunday evening, Bourdain called the former president “a piece of s—. Entitled, rapey, gropey, grabby, disgusting, and the way that he — and she — destroyed these women and the way that everyone went along, and, and are blind to this! Screamingly apparent hypocrisy and venality.”

“The worst thing Asia ever said to me, she’d had a bad day, she was doing a play in uh, Turin? Somewhere in Italy. And she was rehearsing and she’d had a really bad day with the director. Dude, of course. And she comes home and she’s f— furious,” he remarked during a February interview with Popula, which was conducted a few days after People traveled with him to Lafayette, Louisiana for
In the lengthy Q&A published by the new Popula journalism website, Bourdain, during a discussion that also had him describing Bill Clinton as “a piece of sh*t, entitled, rapey, gropey, grabby, disgusting,” mused on how Weinstein might depart this world.
“As much as I’d like to see him, you know, beaten to death in his cell,” Bourdain says before offering another scenario:

“Yes, I did offer them acting jobs in exchange for sex, but so did and still does everyone,” Weinstein said to columnist Panagiotis “Taki” Theodoracopulos in an interview for The Spectator. “But I never, ever forced myself on a single woman.”
“I was born poor, ugly, Jewish and had to fight all my life to get somewhere,” Weinstein told Taki. “You got lotsa girls, no girl looked
“I was present for the conversation; it was not an interview, but a social meeting between old friends,” Benjamin Brafman said in a statement this morning after Deadline reported on the Spectator piece. “Harvey and Taki did not discuss the case, nor would I allow him to. We talked about old Hollywood and the contrast to European culture, and I think Taki sees Harvey in that older light. Mr. Weinstein never said anything about trading movie roles for sexual favors. You have my word that Harvey did not say that.”
In case the word of Harvey Weinstein’s defense attorney doesn’t convince you,
Harvey Weinstein admitted to abusing his power during a recent interview with The Spectator magazine (via Deadline). The disgraced former head of The Weinstein Company has been accused of sexual harassment and/or abuse by over 100 women, many of whom are actresses in Hollywood and around the world. Weinstein is currently facing sex crime charges in New York City and has plead not guilty.
“Yes, I did offer them acting jobs in exchange for sex, but so did and still does everyone,” Weinstein admitted about many of the accusations against him. “But I never, ever forced myself on a single woman.”
Weinstein told The Spectator columnist Taki Theodoracopulos: “You were born rich and privileged and you were handsome. I was born poor, ugly, Jewish and had to fight all my life to get somewhere. You got lots of girls, no girl looked at me until I made it big in Hollywood.
Brafman, who was present for the conversation, which he described as “not an interview, but a social meeting between old friends,” disputed Taki’s published account. “Mr. Weinstein never said anything about trading movie roles for sexual favors,” Brafman said. “Harvey and Taki did not discuss the case, nor would I allow him to. They talked about old Hollywood and the contrast to European culture, and I think Taki sees Harvey in that older light.”
In a statement from Brafman’s office attributed to Taki Theodoracopulos, the veteran columnist said, “After 41 years as a Spectator columnist without a single retraction, I believe that I may have misrepresented Harvey Weinstein’s
The letter, published by the Los Angeles Times, condemns the “vicious cyberbullying and repulsive slander” Argento has faced in the weeks since Bourdain’s tragic passing. The letter explains the actress and activist has been “accused of everything from causing her boyfriend’s suicide to trying to use her ‘survivor status’ and the #MeToo movement to advance her career.”
“There has long been a traditional narrative of blaming, vilifying and martyring courageous women. We reject that narrative,” the letter states. “If there is one thing we know with unwavering confidence,
The letter, published Thursday by the Los Angeles Times, claimed Argento “has now found herself on the receiving end of vicious cyberbullying and repulsive slander at the hands of internet trolls who hold her responsible for Anthony’s death.”
The note also said that Argento has been accused by online commenters of using the #MeToo movement and Bourdain’s suicide to advance her career.
The letter’s signatories included Crews; actresses Rosanna Arquette, Paz de la Huerta, Natasha Henstridge, Oliva Munn, and Mira Sorvino; and Fox reporter Lauren Sivan, who was one of the first women to go public with an accusation against disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.
Since Bourdain’s death, the op-ed reads, Argento “has now found herself on the receiving end of vicious cyberbullying and repulsive slander at the hands of internet trolls who hold her responsible for Anthony’s death.”
“She has been accused of everything from causing her boyfriend’s suicide to trying to use her ‘survivor status’ and the #MeToo movement to advance her career,” the op-ed, titled “An open letter to anyone who loves Anthony Bourdain and what he stood for,” continues.
The op-ed explains that Bourdain was an active supporter of the #MeToo movement and women in general, and uses
Per the Manhattan Surrogate’s Court documents filed Thursday, his estate includes $425,000 in savings and cash, $35,000 in brokerage accounts, $250,000 in personal property and $500,000 in “intangible property including royalties and residuals,” according to USA Today. Bourdain’s estranged wife, Ottavia Busia-Bourdain, will serve as executor of his estate, as well as inherit “personal and household effects,” including cars and frequent flier miles, to use “in accordance with what (she) believes to have been my wishes.”
Though the amount seems relatively low for a TV personality, Bourdain set aside a separate trust, which is currently of unknown value and assets. Trust records are confidential, but
It happened on Wednesday when a discussion with columnist Aj Benza on Carolla’s podcast, “The Adam Carolla” show, turned toward the recent accusations posed against the Nerdist co-founder, who has appeared on Carolla’s show in the past. Carolla referred to Hardwick as a “gentle soul of a guy.”
Hardwick, a king in the geek media industry, was dealt a significant blow after actress and former Nerdist host Chloe Dykstra posted a Medium essay last week, accusing her ex-boyfriend of “sexual assault,” “controlling behavior” and career sabotage after their breakup.
Hardwick denied Dkystra’s sexual assault accusations in a statement the following day.
“First off, he’s a gentle soul of a guy,” Carolla said after acknowledging that people have been approaching him with questions about Hardwick. “Chris has always been a very thoughtful, sort of just gentle guy.
