‘Famous Food’ Trailer Promises D-List Dining Disaster

Is there life after reality star fame? On VH1 there is. Introducing Famous Food, the show that brings together such luminaries as Heidi Montag, Danielle Staub, and Ashley Dupre and lets them battle for the chance to work for Mike Malin, a.k.a. Boogie from Big Brother. If that seems like a strange prize, don’t scoff just yet: Mike is partners in the Dolce Group, which owns and operates various restaurants and nightclubs here in Los Angeles (and across the country). At the end of the series, Mike and his business partner Lonnie will select a “celebrity” to receive a stake in a new restaurant.

Sounds like a cool prize, but then again, I can’t imagine any restaurant with Jake Pavelka or Three 6 Mafia at the helm being a major draw; so the earnings might not be the windfall that these D-listers are hoping for. Either way, I might tune in just to see Danielle “I will not clap” Staub attack a doe-eyed Heidi “Boobs” Montag.

File this one under “Disaster.”
