If you see Heidi Montag waiting tables, it's not because she's fallen on hard times. "The Hills" star is teaming up with six fellow celebrities for a restaurant-themed VH1 reality show called "Famous Food."
In the series, Montag, Danielle Staub ("Real Housewives of New Jersey"), Jake Pavelka ("The Bachelor"), Vincent Pastore ("The Sopranos"), singer/mistress Ashley Dupre and Three 6 Mafia members DJ Paul and Juicy "J" will spend eight weeks working at a new restaurant—also called Famous Food—and attempt to turn it into a hit.
Each week, they'll be faced with a different challenge, including renovating the space, agreeing on a restaurant concept, drafting marketing plans, crafting a menu, hiring staff and ensuring a scandal-free grand-opening. Whoever contributes the most to the restaurant's success will ultimately be crowned the winner and receive a partnership stake in the restaurant.
With a crew that includes Staub and Montag, expect things to get pretty heated when the one-hour, 10-episode series premieres this fall.
