The finale of Famous Food, you know, that show that very few people watched, aired last night and two “celebrity” winners were declared!
Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub emerged one of the winners, which wasn’t exactly a big surprise as Danielle has been heavily promoting the Lemon Basket restaurant on twitter all summer.
In a surprising twist, the Dolce Group’s founding members — Big Brother alum Mike “Boogie” Malin and Lonnie Moore — decided to pick two winners instead of one. The first winner they picked was rapper DJ Paul of the rap group Three 6 Mafia.
With their win, Danielle and DJ Paul are now partners with the Dolce Group when it comes to the newly opened Lemon Basket restaurant in Hollywood.
Following her win, Danielle tweeted last night: “So proud to be partners w @DolceGroupLA @lonniemoore @DJPAULKOM in #LemonBasket @FamousFoodVH1 on @VH1 WON!! Just sayin.”
No word yet on how well the restaurant is doing considering the show was a bit of a ratings disaster for the VH1 network. Oddly enough, I actually watched the entire season and I must say, it wasn’t a bad show. I believe the show would have been a ratings hit had it premiered a year ago. Quite frankly, the downfall was the timing. At this point, the public is well over the Heidi Montags, Danielle Staubs, Jake Pavelkas, Ashley Dupres, etc.
TELL US – DID YOU WATCH THE SHOW THIS SEASON? THOUGHTS ON THE WINNERS?
