Heidi Montag vs Danielle Staub: Reality Stars to Hit the Chopping Block in New VH1 Series 'Famous Food'
Imagine you could head over to any reality star's house for dinner.
Given your selection (think: table-flipping Teresa from "Housewives"), it may not be the most appetizing experience, but it’s certain to create a dramatic pairing – one that VH1 hopes will be a recipe for ratings.
On Sunday July 10, VH1 will premiere “Famous Food,” a new show that gives racy reality stars the chance to put their name to a hip Hollywood restaurant just like Ashton Kutcher’s Geisha House. The glories of VIP seating and unlimited bread baskets could soon belong to those who have grown famous for being famous, but of course, they’ll have to
fight err…work for it first.
Mike Malina and Lonnie Moore, the renowned restaurateurs of The Dolce Group, are brave enough to lend their names and guidance to contestants including, Heidi Montag (“The Hills”), Academy Award-Winning artists, DJ Paul and Juicy “J” (from rap group Three 6 Mafia), Danielle Staub (“Real Housewives of New Jersey”), Jake Pavelka (“The Bachelor”), Ashley Dupre (Singer) and Vincent Pastore (“The Sopranos”).
Like many entrepreneurial endeavors, the concept is risky. Mouthwatering food and Heidi Montag, to some, may seem like oil and water, but perhaps that’s exactly the hype The Dolce Group gurus want. Luckily, they’ll be along to assign tasks during the ten episode series as the celebrities work together to the restaurant off the ground.
After eight weeks of hard work, the season will conclude with the grand opening of one of the reality restaurateur’s fantasy restaurant.
