Amy’s Baking Company Waitress Does Reddit Tell-All!

Thought the Amy’s Baking Company meltdown couldn’t get any meltier? Reddit delivers.

All day long, my Facebook friends have been unable to look away from the Amy’s Baking Company meltdown on Facebook and Reddit, and it seems the controversy reached a new level as Katy Cipriano — a waitress seen and treated shabbily on the restaurant’s aborted episode of Kitchen Nightmares — did her own freaking Reddit IAmA post today.

Dear sweet Jesus, please let it be real! [Update: tweet below.] Katy Cipriano’s Reddit account isn’t verified, but the thread is massive and it seems if there was any indication a PR stunt may have been afoot… this isn’t it.

Cipriano repeatedly refers to the Amy and Samy seen on the show as basically bats*** crazy, and isn’t afraid to detail her horror time at Amy’s Baking Company.

Right off the bat, she explains why she lost her job on the show, and says:

“the only reason [Amy] had against me for firing me was my attitude when she was giving me the appetizer. which, they did not show the events leading up to that scene as to ‘why’ i asked if she was sure. so to answer, i quit in frustration.”

Katy elaborates:

“she had messed up a certain table’s appetizer dish 3 or 4 times IN A ROW. and it made me look like an idiot because i was their server and the table was getting increasingly agitated. so when she told me to deliver the appetizer yet again, i asked “are you sure?” – not meaning to sound bratty or mean or anything.”

Cipriano also alleges she did not receive tips while working at Amy’s Baking Company, adding:

“she had messed up a certain table’s appetizer dish 3 or 4 times IN A ROW. and it made me look like an idiot because i was their server and the table was getting increasingly agitated. so when she told me to deliver the appetizer yet again, i asked “are you sure?” – not meaning to sound bratty or mean or anything.”

Cipriano further addresses Reddit’s suspicions that the owner of Amy’s Baking Company is engaged in criminal activity, surprisingly surmising:

“best question! yes i do think samy was serious when saying that because one, look at him, and two, they are able to close for days or weeks on end and still manage to pay their rent and never be evicted. suspicious, really.”
