Quite a lot of famous people suiciding recently including Kate Spade and the sister of some Dutch princess.

I never liked his shows (always more of a Bizarre Foods fan), but I did agree with some of his sayings. I knew he was a troubled person just based off his words, but never to this degree. He was in the midst of filming some show also, so he really must not have liked doing it. Sometimes (many times) being famous is bad for the psyche. Always in spotlight and people hounding you. I wonder if that had something to do with it.

I do wonder what his last meal was.

He was shooting the new season of his very popular show. By all accounts, he loved doing it. Depression (assuming that's what was at work in his case) is a nasty, undermining beast, though. You can be enjoying the thing you love most and still be deeply, darkly miserable inside.
