He noted it was important he never shot in two cities back-to-back for his CNN series Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown so that he could spend five days a month with Ariane, who lives with Busia in NY with her mom.
As reported by Page Six The 42-year-old actress was posting photos and videos to her Instagram story all throughout the day on Thursday, some of which included a Rome geotag, which would indicate that she was not in France with Bourdain at the time of his death. In her first social media post since her ex-husband's death, Ottavia Busia, shared a rare photo of Ariane, their only child, with a microphone in her hand at DROM, a music venue in New York City.
"She was wonderful. So strong and courageous", the proud mom captioned the photo. "She wore the boots you bought her", Busia wrote alongside the image.
Argento and Bourdain had been dating for about two years, after meeting in 2016 on the set of Bourdain's CNN series, "Parts Unknown".
Italian actress Asia Argento and USA singer and actress Rose McGowan, who both accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, took part in a march organized by "Non Una Di Meno" (Me Too) movement on March 8, 2018 as part of the International Women's Day in Rome. "Do NOT do the sexist thing and burn a woman on the pyre of misplaced blame", she wrote. "My soul [sic] duty as a parent and as a father, particularly raising a little girl who is going to grow up to be a young woman, is that she will never look to men for affirmation, or anyone else for affirmation or self-worth or be physically intimidated by anyone", he told Mom.me in 2015. Bourdain was married to high school sweetheart Nancy Putkoski from 1985 until separating in the mid-2000s and then divorcing.
Prior to Busia, Bourdain was married to Nancy Putkoski for two decades.
"Anthony gave all of himself in everything that he did".
Anthony Bourdain's death by suicide at age 61 hit his followers hard, and those who were closest to him have slowly come forward to express their sadness as well. "I am beyond devastated". His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much.
Argento, 42, asked that her privacy and that of Bourdain's grieving family be respected.
Anthony had previously opened up about his battle with depression on Parts Unknown.
