Heidi Montag's Guests Nearly Ruin Soft Opening on 'Famous Food' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 1st 2011 9:40AM
Heidi Montag, 'Famous Food'Guess who's not going to win 'Famous Food' (Wed., 8PM ET on VH1)? With the finale next week, and the grand opening in this week's episode, this was the time to step it up and prove why you're the best celebrity business partner possible for this venture.

Heidi Montag didn't even begin to do that. Then, at the soft opening, her own friends and PR team made things worse by apparently "performing" for the camera. You have to think that most of Heidi's publicity in recent years has been negative, so that must be what her team cultivates and thinks works.

So they went into a very dramatic monologue about how horrific the food was, and yet no one else there was having such a problem. Then, when Heidi was confronted with this news, she simply denied the reality of it.

Heidi Montag Has No Idea How to Wait Tables or Tend Bar on 'Famous Food' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 18th 2011 9:50AM
Heidi Montag, 'Famous Food'Heidi Montag clearly has no idea what restaurant work is really all about. When the gang from 'Famous Food' (Wed., 8PM ET on VH1) went to a working restaurant to get some training, she first decided that as a waitress, it would be better if she drank with the customers.

"The more fun I am and the better time I'm having, the more fun the customers are having, and therefore the more money I'm making for everybody," she explained. But the restaurant boss wasn't nearly as supportive as she expected, sending her behind the bar.

Unfortunately, this proved to be an even worse idea. "When I'm behind the bar, the goal is to be entertaining, sell drinks and draw crowds," Montag said. She proceeded to try and throw drinks like in the movie 'Cocktail' to disastrous results.

Danielle Staub, 'Famous Food''Famous Food' (Sun., 10PM ET on VH1) is just getting under way, and already the celebrities are at each other's throats. More specifically, former 'Soprano' Vincent "Big Pussy" Pastore and former 'Real Housewife of NJ' Danielle Staub were at each other's throats.

The way they were going at it, if anyone tuned in and didn't recognize them, they'd just assume they were some bickering old married couple. The genesis of the spat was over what to do with the kitchen.

Staub said to gut it, while Pastore said they were planning to spend $200 toward cleaning it. Then Staub said he was interrupting her, and he should wait until she'd finished before he attacked.

Famous FoodStop everything you are doing and watch this trailer for 'Famous Food.' Why? Because it's an epic train wreck and if this trailer is any indication, this series will be reality TV gold.

The celebs behind it all? Danielle Staub, Heidi Montag, Jake Pavelka, Ashley Dupre, DJ Paul and Juicy J from the Three 6 Mafia and 'Sopranos' actor Vincent Pastore.

The cast members are competing for a partnership stake in the restaurant with the Dolce Group.

Famous FoodWe've been chronicling the creation of VH1's 'Famous Food' as any self-respecting rubber-necker might do, and the latest tidbit from the trainwreck-in-the-making, an official cast photo, won't disappoint.

In what many (we) are calling a reality show apocalypse, Danielle Staub, Heidi Montag, Jake Pavelka are teaming to open a restaurant. The cast also includes Ashley Dupre (call girl to New York's former governor Eliot Spitzer, but VH1 lists her as a "singer"), Oscar-winners DJ Paul and Juicy J from the Three 6 Mafia and 'Sopranos' veteran Vincent Pastore.

The cast will have to complete tasks to get the restaurant (titled Famous Food) off the ground. Restauranteurs Mike Malin and Lonnie Moore of the Dolce Group will award one lucky "celeb" with a partnership stake in the new restaurant.

The show premieres Sun., July 10 at 10PM and you bet your bottom we'll be watching this gem.

Heidi Montag, 'Lopez Tonight'Remember Heidi Montag? She was back on 'Lopez Tonight' (Weeknights, 12AM on TBS) talking about how much she was enjoying being out of the spotlight. As for her husband Spencer Pratt, Montag indicated "I don't know if he'll ever come back."

Considering how negatively he was received toward the end of the media bonanza, we can't really blame him. As for Montag, she seems interested in staying relatively low-key, except for the odd talk show appearance apparently.

When George Lopez asked if she wanted to get into acting, she said, "I think I want to be a puppy-sitter."
