    Default Famous Food- new VH1 series

    Is anyone else watching this? It looks like a trainwreck in an awesome way. Like a trashtastic, F-list 'Celebrity Apprentice.' First episode aired this weekend. I haven't seen it yet.

    A clip HERE- won't embed, sorry!

    ETA: 1st episode is online:
    "Fame" ( Ep. 101 ) from Famous Food | Full Episode | VH1.com

    Description:
    In this restaurant, "seven stars" might not be a good thing...

    From Ashton Kutcher's Geisha House to Robert DeNiro's Ago, attaching a celebrity's name to a restaurant is definitely a growing trend in Hollywood.... but is it always a recipe for success? Famous Food will put this concept to the test by partnering with renowned restaurateurs, The Dolce Group, to give seven celebrities the chance to turn an empty Sunset Strip eatery into a flourishing and fully operating restaurant. If they succeed -- one of them will be rewarded with a partnership position in the new venture.

    The cast includes Heidi Montag ("The Hills"), who sees this as her chance to save her family after the demise of her parent's restaurant. Singer (and the former NY Governor's Scandal-Girl) Ashley Dupre will try her hand at a new kind of business. She might not know food but she knows customer service. Academy Award-Winning artists, DJ Paul and Juicy "J" (from rap group Three 6 Mafia), will find out if its "Hard Out Here For a Chef." Danielle Staub ("Real Housewives of New Jersey") and Vincent Pastore ("The Sopranos") will bring a certain New Jersey savvy to the venture. Finally, Jake Pavelka who has been an airline pilot, a TV Bachelor, and a Dancing Star will now try his hand at the food business. For five weeks, this colorful crew of celebrities will roll up their sleeves and try to work together to launch their own restaurant.

    To give them a fighting chance, Mike Malin and Lonnie Moore, founding members of The Dolce Group, will let them know what it takes to open a successful celebrity restaurant. From Hollywood and beyond, some of their well-known establishments include Dolce, Angels & Kings, Geisha House, Ten Pin Alley, rare 120, Wonderland and Johnny Smalls. Over the course of the series, Mike and Lonnie will provide the guidance and discipline necessary to get the restaurant off the ground -- but the real work and creativity is entirely up to the Famous Food cast.

    They will have to agree on a restaurant concept; from Vincent's Meatballaria to Juicy J's Creole Kitchen to Jake Pavelka's Broken Rose Cafe, anything is possible. After they decide type of restaurant they want, they'll have to renovate the space; create marketing plans, craft a menu, hire the staff and eventually, ensure a flawless grand opening. They've got five weeks and a limited budget to get the restaurant up and running. If at the end of the time period, the restaurant is turning a profit, the Dolce Group will announce which of the Celebrities they've decided to keep as a partner in the restaurant. If not, the restaurant, and these celeb's dreams, will disappear for good.

    Can seven, famous, over-the-top personalities work together and make it in the culinary world? Or do too many cooks really spoil the broth? Find out on "Famous Food"!

    This looks like a train wreck!! I will be a'watching.
    (and why does Ashley Dupree always call herself an escort, like that's a classier way of saying whore or something? You were a prostitute! An escort takes someone to the movies.)
    Baby, by the time you have kids and they're in school, no one will care about you.

    I'm still giggling at their idea to launch an 'Italian-soul food fusion' place. That guy from the Sopranos, Vincent, started the whole thing with this looong rant about how Italians and blacks are the same people and no one knows it.

    Vincent and Danielle Staub hate eachother. Heidi Montag is still a dingbat and Ashley Dupre actually seems to be the sensible one in the room. Good times!

    Anyone happen to catch what day this comes on? I just watched the first episode online.

    Ah is anyone else still watching this? Its actually quite entertaining!!

    Random things:
    - Heidi Montag is actually pretty likable on this show. but she's so dingy sometimes. Then others she's the only with some sense. And she gets drunk a lot.

    - Speaking of getting drunk, Juicy J from Three 6 Mafia drinks a lot (or is edited to appear that way). Crazy and entertaining.

    - And Danielle is suddenly all tight with Three 6 Mafia which is just... weird.

    THey have a sheisty interior designer and I want to know whats going on with that. Its so extreme I'm wondering if he's really a real interior designer bc he's coming off as straight-up criminal on this show..
