Paula Froelich took to social media to mourn her former boyfriend, Anthony Bourdain, who recently passed away.


Froelich, a known columnist, shared a nostalgic photo of herself with Bourdain on her Instagram profile only mere hours after the news of Bourdain’s death made headlines.

The famous chef passed away at 61 years old after allegedly committing suicide.

Froelich, 44, who dated Bourdain in early 2005 for a few months, captioned the Instagram photo, ‘To a good man, a great friend, a loyal love. That’s all I’m going to say.’

The columnist also made efforts to discuss depression on her Twitter page.


She made a lengthy statement sharing her sentiments about the sensitive topic in a series of tweets.

In one of her tweets, she wrote, ‘It’s lonely, it magnifies everything into something awful, and you don’t know when or if this cycle will end… so it’s also terrifying. And embarrassing. And humiliating – because there’s something wrong with you.’

Finally, she ended her statement pointing out that only the ‘best, funniest, loveliest, most empathetic, wonderful, talented people have depression’ and that they are part of a good crowd, where the people in it are willing to fight the sickness together as one.


On June 8th, Bourdain, who is the host of CNN’s Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, was found unconscious inside his hotel room in Strasbourg, France by his longtime friend and world-renowned chef Eric Ripert.

The duo was in France to film an episode of Bourdain’s show.

A representative from the Strasbourg police confirmed Bourdain’s death but refused to specify its cause. Although, the police classified the manner of his death as a suicide, as shared by People.

As for Froelich, she confirmed her relationship with Bourdain in April 2005. For more stories about Bourdain or his relationships, visit our Twitter account, @amomama_usa.
