Amy’s Baking Company owners Amy and Samy Bouzaglo are making the best of their nasty and embarrassing appearance on Gordon Ramsay‘s Kitchen Nightmares by capitalizing with their own reality TV show, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
The off-the-wall and loud-mouthed couple is currently entertaining several offers from production companies for their own show — and an insider tells Radar that Amy and Samy hope to seal the deal.
“Right now Cineflix is the most serious production company trying to secure Amy and Samy. They want to develop a show around their restaurant and their bad behavior,” the source revealed.
“Amy and Samy are all for it because they feel like it’s the only way to keep their restaurant open.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Amy and Samy’s appearance on Kitchen Nightmares was the most memorable in the show’s history, and after an onslaught of online hate mail and death threats directed towards the couple it was revealed that Amy is a convicted felon, Samy is currently facing deportation, the restaurant had a history of Health Department violations and business continues to fail — making them reality TV gold.
“Right now their agent is just looking out for them to make sure they get the best deal, so they want to wait on signing with Cineflix to make sure they’ve seen all the deals on the table,” the source told Radar.
“But no doubt, you will be seeing Amy and Samy on TV again sometime in the future. They need to generate money and publicity to keep their business going, otherwise customers just dropping in because of their Kitchen Nightmares appearance will fizzle and their restaurant will go under.”
The Scottsdale, Ariz. restaurant had a grand re-opening earlier this month that drew a crowd of onlookers eager to meet the kooky couple, but as Radar exclusively reported on Tuesday, it seems they haven’t changed much in terms of customer service.
“Never mind the slow, inexperienced staff, the tense atmosphere in the restaurant and the empty tables which made me wonder where the publicized 1,000 reservations were on a Friday night,” journalist Hayley Ringlewrote in the Phoenix Business Journal.
“There were bugs in one of our drinks. Well, three actually.
