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.

Ella Nolan Before and After

Bachelor Pad star Ella Nolan is showing off her new body and face today after going under the knife for FIVE plastic surgery procedures!

The Bachelor alum and single mother of one tells Life & Style magazine she decided to undergo the surgeries after seeing her flaws on national television.

“TV magnifies all your flaws, and seeing my profile really bothered me,” admits Ella, 31. “And I’ve always wanted my breasts done. Before I got pregnant with my son, Ethan, about 10 years ago, my boobs were fabulous. They haven’t been the same since.”

Ella’s plastic surgeon was none other than Dr. Franklin Rose, the dad of Ella’s fellow contestant Erica Rose and the same surgeon who performed Vienna Girardi’s nose job.

Dr. Rose also spoke to the mag about Ella’s procedures. “We removed 3 liters of fat from her hips, thighs and lower abdomen,” Dr. Rose reveals. “That should bring her down at least four dress sizes. Her breasts, a small B, were enlarged to a large C-small D.”

As for Ella, who will appear on the Bachelor Pad’s finale Monday night, she couldn’t be happier with the results! “I got everything I wanted. I feel incredible,” Ella says about her transformation. “I can’t stop touching my new boobs!”

Another before and after shot of Ella is below, showing off her nose job –

G to the I-A Giudice now has her own twitter account!

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice confirmed yesterday that the twitter handle @TrueGia does indeed belong to her 10-year-old daughter Gia.

“Alright so Gia finally has a Twitter account! It’s @TrueGia It’s really her, but her mgr @XistTalentMaria monitors it so be nice! She’s 10!” wrote Teresa, adding, “Love love love you @TrueGia !!! Can’t believe your first tweet was to @BravoAndy though and not me! xx.”

Bravo’s own Andy Cohen also welcomed the 5th grader to the twitter! Andy tweeted to Gia: “@TrueGia omg gia i didn’t see this tweet! i need you to come demo your fierce runway walk on wwhl! XOX.”

Some are however criticizing Teresa for allowing her young daughter to own a twitter account, citing she might be too young to handle all the attention, both good and bad. Teresa however assures us Gia’s account is monitored by an adult.

“Gia’s Twitter @TrueGia is monitored & filtered by her mgr @XistTalentMaria so she will only see/respond to nice msgs xx,” wrote Teresa. It appears this is to help Gia’s career as she’s trying to get into acting and modeling.

As for G to the I-A, the little one appears beyond excited to be on twitter and has been tweeting up a storm. Below are some of Gia’s adorable tweets –

The official cast photos of Dancing With The Stars season 13 have now been released!

Above is the first glimpse of Chaz Bono, the first transgendered contestant on the show, in his dancing costume alongside partner Lacey Schwimmer. As we reported, the casting of Chaz, 42, has proven to be a rather controversial one for ABC with some fans voicing their disapproval.

Below are more photos of the remaining “stars” which includes David Arquette, Nancy Grace, Kristin Cavallari, Carson Kressley and their dancing partners!

In other DWTS news, TMZ is reporting today that Rob Kardashian has been slacking off when it comes to practicing his dance moves. Rob’s partner Cheryl Burke is reportedly “fed up” with him as he refuses to practice for more than 2 hours with her. Other contestants are putting in over 5 hours a day.

Cheryl now feels this shows Rob’s lack of interest in doing the show. And while he’s busy not practicing, Rob is reportedly bragging to his older sister Kimmie Kardashian that he will top her DWTS performance by making it past week 3. Good luck with that one Robbie!

Dancing With The Stars returns to ABC on Sep. 19 at 8/7c.

In today’s not so shocking news, a report states Teen Mom star Gary Shirley is broke and homeless.

According to OK! magazine, Gary, who has custody of his 2-year-old daughter with Amber Portwood, has been evicted from his house in Anderson, Indiana.

“He’s flat broke,” explains an insider, who says Gary’s been living on friends’ couches – often with his daughter, Leah. Yikes.

“I’m really worried about Leah. She’s such a good kid. She never really cries and is always laughing; but her life is so unstable,” says the pal. “She never knows who is going to feed her, change her, babysit her or where she’s going to sleep.”

Gary, 25, is of course denying the report, saying he is not broke though oddly enough he doesn’t deny being homeless. He tweeted, “Rumors of being broke are false. I’ve chosen to move and am in that transition. Leah is completely fine and obviously always cared for.”

Just weeks ago, TMZ reported Gary spent over $5,000 while out on a stripper bender.

And unfortunately for little Leah, it appears her mom Amber, 21, isn’t doing much better. Just a week after she left her Malibu rehab facility, following 2 months of treatment, OK! magazine is reporting that Amber is having a hard time coping.

“She sleeps 18 hours a day and hasn’t really changed her habits,” reveals a Gary insider. Amber’s rehab stint came after she attempted to take her own life back in June.

A new episode of Teen Mom airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
