Patton Oswalt Just Shared The Most Anthony Bourdain Email Of All Time

Anthony Bourdain is known as a titan of the culinary world. An authority on great cuisine. Some would even go so far as to call him a celebrity chef.

A moniker that Bourdain became famous for hating on. His book, Kitchen Confidential, which launched him into the stratosphere and helped make him a household name, was a stunningly well written tell-all that outed himself and other line cooks/chefs as being drug-addled madmen who happened to have a passion for amazing food. 

Bourdain even went so far as to make fun of celebrity chefs. His tell-it-like-it-is, devil-may-care bluntness was poetic – because he cut to the core of what he loved/hated about culinary culture.

He looked and acted like a member of The Ramones that picked up a knife set instead of a guitar and stumbled into a kitchen instead of a sound stage. 

Unfortunately, Bourdain took his own life, leaving behind his 11-year-old daughter, along with the amazing persona he had developed over the years.

A persona that was evident down to his email correspondence. Patton Oswalt shared an image of a message he received from Bourdain after he had asked him for suggestions on what to do while honeymooning in Paris with his wife, Meredith Salenger.

Oswalt gave Bourdain a list of suggestions he had received from friends and family members and the No Reservations host responded in his trademark style:

Patton,

I’m a fan and an admirer so gotta tell you this is no way to enjoy Paris.

F*** them. All of them. They’re THERE, everywhere. You will see them from the car window as you go and do important s*** like live your life. In Paris !

Try and plan as little as possible.

Le Comptoire is great. Amazing food and perfect atmosphere.  Show early and squeeze in to L’Avant Comptoire next door.

Le Dome for shellfish tower

Rue Mouffetard for the market

And sandwiche jambon or fresh croissant anywhere at right time.

People responded to Oswalt’s tweet, telling him what he most definitely already knows.

And others couldn’t stop nodding their heads, calling the email “classic Bourdain.”

Tons of celebrities and prominent figures spoke up in the wake of Bourdain’s death.

Some shared personal experiences they had with the man.

And tributes/condolences are popping up all over social media for him.

Including people who worked or lived with Bourdain.

And those who worked in the same industry as the artist.

Whenever a noteworthy person passes away there’s no shortage of theories as to why they did it. But the real answer is depression. If you or anyone you know is depressed, get help:  1-800-273-8255.

15 People Shared Their Experiences With The Paranormal

Maybe you’re not the superstitious type, and you laugh every time you hear stories about people who swear they’ve been saved or haunted by ghosts. Sure, these stories are probably ridiculous and there’s certainly no compelling scientific evidence to suggest the presence of the paranormal. 

However, there’s no denying that tiny shred of doubt that can’t explain the random gusts of wind through the curtains, creaks in the closet, and faint voices in the middle of the night…. You know what we’re talking about. 

People took to Whisper to share their run-ins with the paranormal? Are ghosts real or is it a load of bullsh*t? You decide.

  1. When we were younger, my brother and I had to share a room one night. I had always heard whispers. This night, my brother sat up in his sleep and said "They're calling you. Go to them"
  2. I remember being at my grandma's house, I slept in the living room & around 2 in the morning I felt a hand brush against my foot and when I checked to see what it was I was pulled off the bed.
  3. One time I got a phone call in my old apartment, there was a quiet voice of a little girl saying"you should leave soon mister, or else the boogeyman will get you" the next day somebody broke in.
  4. There's a spirit at my job, it makes my car alarm go off at exactly 11pm every night I work.
  5. My wife woke me up to say that there is an intruder in the house. my wife died 2 years ago because of an intruder
  6. I saw a ghost once. My husband did, too. Sometimes the cats avoid that spot and I wonder if she's watching me.
  7. I think the ghost of my ex girlfriend watches me. I hear her voice when I'm by myself, she died 5 years ago.
  8. When I was 10 I didn't believe in ghosts. One day when my sister & I were home alone, I saw a pale lady dressed in a 1800s nightgown go through a wall. I've been a believer ever since.
  9. When I was younger I used to see a mans face appear in windows quite often, it was always the same man, never the same window
  10. My house is haunted, no big deal. But today the tv turned on by itself. Nope. I don't like that ghost.
  11. I'm sure my old house was haunted. My roommates and I heard voices, shared the same nightmare,saw figures and shadows when no one else was home and even woke up with scratches in weird places
  12. I was just sitting in my room home alone, and I have nothing on but my small fan, and I heard someone say "Mommy" .. I don't have a child ...
  13. I was home alone. Was in my room for hours. When my parents came back home they asked if I was in the living room seconds ago. I said no & they replied that they'd seen a dark figure standing there.
  14. nobody believes my house is haunted. yeah, the bruises and scratch marks all over me sure don't say anything.
  15. Once I woke up in the middle of night to see a woman a foot away from me. She was bent over just staring at me. We looked at each other for 10 sec then I looked away and she disappeared

15 Women Shared What They Just Don't Get About Their Significant Others

Entering into a relationship means learning to accept all kinds of quirks about your partner— quirks you didn’t necessarily know about during the honeymoon phase or the first couple dates where they pretended to like your T.V. shows and said that they talk to their mom on the phone every Wednesday. 

And then there are the weird habits that we’ll never get. But that’s love, we suppose. 

Women took to Whisper to vent about what they’ll never understand about their significant others. You’ll probably be able to relate:

Chrissy Teigen Shared Her Horrifying 'Half-Naked' Hotel Employee Story And It's Hilarious

My fondest memory ever of a hotel is when I convinced my wife to smoke weed for the first time and we hotboxed the shower at the Borgata, got insanely high, had crazy sex for an hour straight, and then went and destroyed the buffet downstairs.

Good times was an understatement.

It wasn’t good times for whoever had to clean up the room afterwards, and even though hotels are “supposed” to be places where you go all out, that doesn’t mean I didn’t feel bad and a little embarrassed for the hotel employees faced with cleaning up after us.

But as humiliated as I was, I don’t think I can top Chrissy Teigen’s embarrassing story – because she had to face it in real time.

And although Teigen gets half-naked for a living, it’s kind of different when you’re carrying your baby and fearing for your life during a hectic fire drill.

During the fire drill debacle, Teigen’s mother (@pepperthai2) had some very serious concerns as well.

The whole thing was very disconcerting for Chrissy.

Thankfully, she uploaded a video for her followers, letting them know her and her mom were OK.

Even supermodels don’t like fire drills.
