CNN pulls Asia Argento's episodes of Anthony Bourdain's 'Parts Unknown'

Anthony Bourdain, the host of the CNN food tourism show, Parts Unknown died earlier this summer, but there are still episodes that haven't aired, and some include actor Asia Argento, who was dating Bourdain at the time of his suicide.

When it rains, it pours, and right now it's a hurricane for Asia Argento in the wake of sexual allegations. One of the episodes was in Hong Kong and another in Rome, which the celebrity chef called a "professional highlight". As most know, Asia was one of the most active voices in the fight against Harvey Weinstein, the producer who has since been accused of assault by almost 80 women.

CNN has responded to the allegations against Argento by discontinuing all episodes where the actress appeared with her boyfriend, Boyfriend.

According to the report, the two episodes featuring the disgraced actress included Bourdain's trip to Rome, as well as a trip to Hong Kong in the 11th season.

The programming change follows news that Argento had paid a settlement to actor Jimmy Bennett, who claimed that Argento had sexually assaulted him while he was just 17 years old.

In response to the sexual misconduct accusations, Argento claimed that it was Bourdain who "personally undertook to help Bennett economically" because he was concerned about the potential for negative publicity.

In addition, Bourdain's Buenos Aires episode of the show in which he visits a therapist and speaks about his depression is no longer available.
