    Default Uberchef Anthony Bourdain and MMA Wife Ottavia Split After 9 Years Together

    Wow. Everyone is breaking up...


    Celeb chef Anthony Bourdain is a single man again.
    People magazine reported on Monday that the “Parts Unknown” host recently split from his wife Ottavia Busia, a mixed martial arts fighter. The pair were married in 2007 and have a 9-year-old daughter together.
    In a statement to Page Six, Basia, 38, said that she and Bourdain, 60, remain close.
    A source close to the couple told Page Six that “they’ve been separated for a while” and that “there was no one else involved.”
    So far, it seems like the couple has made good on the promise to stay close. Just last week, Busia congratulated Bourdain on his Creative Arts Emmy Award win.
    The pair met and married in quick succession: In a 2012 New York Times profile of Basia, the MMA fighter said that on one of their first dates, they got matching tattoos of a chef’s knife on their shoulders. A few dates later, they were married.
    She told the Times that the pair were equally outspoken and opinionated.
    “We make fun of each other a lot,” she said. “I say what I want. People either like it or not, but I don’t care.”


    A few months back, Bourdain, who travels often to film “Parts Unknown,” called his family “completely dysfunctional” ― but in a good way.
    “I love my family but it’s not an ordinary family,” he told People in May, “If I’m not traveling, I’m pretty much doing jack s— on a Friday night. I’m going to bed when my nine-year-old decides to go to bed. If I’m home, I’m not going to the hot new restaurant, I’m not walking a red carpet, I’m cooking something that my daughter decides she wants, or staying very close to home.”
    Bourdain was previously married to Nancy Putkoski. They divorced in 2004, after two decades together.


    To be honest, I never cared much for his wife - she's a smartass. To be occasionally snarky is one thing, but almost every comment out of this woman's mouth is flippant and obnoxious. That has to be draining.

    I agree, it's not surprising at all. Plus, I was watching something and got the weird feeling that he wasn't really together with his wife. But who knows what it was. Might have just been my imagination/delusion or possibly something he said.

    I recently binged Parts Unknown and forgot how much I love him.

    To the above - was he appealing to you 10 - 15 years ago too? Is his age now part of the appeal or is "him"?

    Yep, he has been appealing to me since I learned of his existence, which was when he was still on Food Network. So that seems like about ten years? The combination of his love of food and sarcasm and calling people out makes me weak in the knees...

    I like him - he kind of reminds me of Elliot Gould. I looked up Ottavia Busia, and it seems like it would be inaccurate to describe her as an MMA fighter. She was some kind of restaurant manager when she met Bourdain. And didn't get into MMA until she gave birth to their daughter and wanted to lose some weight.

    He's smart, funny and rude. Just my type. And I don't mind old.

    You know, to be perfectly honest, I don't even think of Anthony as old or even that much older. The age difference doesn't even register with me until it's brought up. I think he also reads as younger than 60, but again I don't think it would matter much to me.
