Amy's Baking Company Owner Threatens Patron With Knife, Tells Reporters It Was a Pen

Television's nuttiest couple is back.

Samy and Amy Bouzaglo, the delusional restauranteurs behind the craziest episode of Kitchen Nightmares ever, are back at it again: TMZ caught Samy threatening to kill a customer with a knife. His deranged wife Amy — with whom he owns Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, Arizona — demonstrated a moment of sanity and attempted to hold Samy back. But what started the whole thing in the first place? A drunk customer was eating at the restaurant when Amy "became enraged and ordered him to leave."

The customer left, but that was not enough for Samy who ran out after the guy while shouting and waving a knife around. The Bouzaglos then insisted to the trusty TMZ reporters that the knife was actually just a pen, because why not make this story even crazier?

It's been a rough few years for Samy and Amy: Not only did chef Gordon Ramsay straight up give up on their restaurant on Kitchen Nightmares, Samy also faced possible deportation due to his history of drug and extortion charges.
