When we posted about VH1's upcoming restaurant rehab reality show a couple of weeks ago, the show didn't have a name. Commenters suggested Devil's Food, Rodeo Clowns, and the brilliant Starved for Attention. Well, according to TV Squad, the show's got a name now: Famous Food.
And an absolutely bizarre cast list: The Bachelor's Jake Pavelka, reality personality Heidi Montag, Real Housewife and "prostitution whore" Danielle Staub, singer and actual ex-prostitution practitioner Ashley Dupre, Three 6 Mafia members DJ Paul and Juicy J, and former Sopranos star Vincent Pastore.
Apparently these television stars "will work alongside Los Angeles restaurateurs Mike Malin and Lonnie Moore of the Dolce Group as they try to launch a new restaurant in L.A. called Famous Food" and undergo challenges "related to renovation, concept, marketing, menu, staffing and opening."
