Samy from Amy's Baking Company seen going off on customer

The notorious Arizona eatery featured on Kitchen Nightmares is in the news again. This time because of a viral video which appears to show one of the owners, Samy Bouzaglo, chasing after a customer with a weapon. His wife Amy in turn calls the customer a "piece of sh** coward."

Samy and Amy say the patron was drunk, and that Samy had a pen in his hand, not a knife.

Should such volatile and unstable people be cast on reality T.V. in the first place?

We all worked on 'the career.' As if it were a totally separate entity in the room.

Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work is full of all kinds of layers and insight into the world of celebrity, women entertainers, groundbreaking comedy, workaholics, and the self-absorbed. One of those layers is Joan's only child, daughter Melissa, a celebrity now in her own right and every bit as sharp as her mother. This is a serious profile of someone who spent her life trying to be anything but.

If you watch this for anything, check out Melissa's thoughts on being raised by one of the most famous female celebrities to ever live.

"This business, you are mud your whole life," Joan explains when she talks about decades of rejection. And one of her funniest, oldest jokes about men and valuing a woman's intelligence: "No man ever put his hand up a woman's dress looking for a library card." Lol.

Thanks for your candor and rest in peace, Joan Rivers.
