Suicide rates are really on the rise now right, and there's absolutely no shame in calling that number. I'm not afraid to admit that two years ago, I called the hotline. I wasn't seriously considering it but I still felt like I needed help. I got it.

Very sad death. I watched his show a lot. He'll absolutely be missed.

Very upset by this. I didn't really know Kate Spade beyond the name, but I watched many, many hours of Bourdain's shows.

I'm putting this out there again: For anyone who may be struggling with suicidal thoughts, call 1-800-273-8255 any time of day, or text "START" to 741-741 at any hour and you'll get a response from a trained crisis counselor.

This is (unintentionally, I hope) a really bad take.

This is sad. I was a fan.


It was suicide. Tragic. But I have to say it's a very Anthony Bourdain way to go. It wasn't the drugs, alcohol, cigarettes or the weird high-fat/high calorie foods.
