Reality famewhores stars Heidi Montag and Danielle Staub are discovering the hard way this week that their 15 minutes of fame might be officially over.
The two are currently starring on VH1’s new series Famous Food, alongside other famewhoresJake Pavelka,Ashley Dupre, & others, which premiered this Sunday. The ratings are however out today and it is nothing short of a disaster.
How many people tuned in? Only 430,000 viewers. Those numbers are a major flop especially considering the amount of publicity the show received in addition to the fact that the show aired on a major network.
In comparison Sunday’s episode of theReal Housewives of New Jersey, aka Danielle’s former show, was seen by over 2.2 million viewers. Sucks to be Danielle.
It’s safe to assume there will be no second season of Famous Food, or better yet no more reality shows featuring Heidi and Danielle. Here’s to hoping the newly opened Lemon Basket restaurant from the show performs better than the actual show.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON FAMOUS FOOD FLOPPING? ARE HEIDI AND DANIELLE OFFICIALLY OVER?
A week before its premiere, VH1 has now released the season trailer for Famous Food!
The new series features a group of “celebrities” including three with actual talent, two prostitution whores and two good ol famewhores.
In the trailer, Big Brother alum “Mike Boogie” Malin, who is part owner of the Dolce Group, informs Heidi Montag, Jake Pavelka, Danielle Staub, DJ Paul and Juicy J of Three 6 Mafia, Vincent Pastore, andAshley Dupre that they have to work together to open a restaurant, though in the end, only one of them will win a partnership with the Dolce Restaurant Group in L.A.
With two weeks until its official premiere, the VH1 network has now released the cast photo (you can click on it to make it bigger) for the all new reality show Famous Food as well as a video sneak peek!
The premise of the show is that renowned restaurateurs, The Dolce Group, will give the seven “celebrities” the chance to turn one of their West Hollywood, CA properties into a flourishing and fully-operating restaurant. The season will end with one lucky restaurateur’s dream restaurant open for business and ready for the public’s review.
In the sneak peek below, the cast gets to meet the Heidi Doll, who tries to prove she has a brain and isn’t a total boob. “People think I’m this train wreck that hasn’t wrecked yet,” says Heidi, 24. “Little do they know, I have a brain.” Uh uh. The preview clip is below!
Famous Food debuts Sunday, July 10 at 10/9c on VH1.
First it was reported on Wednesday that the 48-year-old had once again become a stripper by signing a deal with Scores in New York. In fact TMZ posted some photos of her stripping nude. And then a day later, Danielle announced she decided to walk away from the deal while also seeking psychological help.
Many, including me, questioned if Danielle was being sincere or if this was just another publicity stunt, you know, being that it is Danielle and all. Well, according to a new TMZ report this morning, it seems she was being sincere.
Danielle is now being sued by Scores to the tune of $375,000 for reneging on her contract to strip for them. In fact, the report states Danielle signed the deal to strip back in November and made the stripping video (where the pictures were taken from) that same month. But right after making the video, Danielle had a change of heart and cut off all contact with Scores.
She received $25,000 for the video she made which was part of an exclusive 3-year contract that required her to do voice work and live video chat sessions on ScoresLive.com.
Also, Scores filed the lawsuit back in April and it appears Scores leaked the photos to TMZ, and not Danielle. A Scores exec states Danielle “has no shot of winning this lawsuit. It is a crystal clear breach of contract”

Days after making headlines for signing a deal to become a stripper at age 48, former Real Housewives of New Jersey starDanielle Staub is now stating she has decided to walk away from the deal; while also seeking treatment for psychological problems stemming from sexual abuse. She also reveals she has dealt with suicidal thoughts.
“I have addictions with love and low self-esteem, and I need help!” Danielle told PEOPLE after nude photos of her stripping at Scores in New York appeared online.
“My low self-esteem derived from childhood sexual abuse has messed with my mind and self-worth, and over the years I thought about getting help but pushed it deep into the depths of denial,” says Danielle. “For years I have had the suicide hotline on my cell phone and would like nothing more than to free myself from this constant pressure.”
Danielle adds that she has decided to finally get help because she went too far this time around. The sex tape wasn’t going too far? “Seeing how I have hurt myself and my family this time, I can no longer push it behind me.”
She goes on to add that she is getting help from Dr. Drew Pinsky and claims she was “coaxed” by her handlers into signing the deal. She however states she accepts responsibility for her actions. “I have to own my mistakes and can’t blame others.”
Being that this is Danielle after all, it’s a bit hard to determine if this is legit or just a publicity stunt. But for the sake of her daughters, here’s to hoping it is the real deal and she is indeed seeking the help she badly needs.
TMZ is reporting today that Danielle, former star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, has once again become a fully nude stripper. If you recall, Danielle’s stripper past came out on the show two years ago after her castmates uncovered her past via a book written by her ex-husband Kevin Maher.
Fast forward to today and the 48-year-old mother of two recently signed a 3-year deal with the Scores Gentleman’s Club in New York. Danielle has agreed to do one live appearance and occasionally appear on ScoresLive.com.
To mark her special accomplishment, Danielle even released some new photos of herself stripping to TMZ. Some of those racy pics are below. We find it quite sad that Danielle, who claims to love her daughters very much, refuses to consider what impact her actions are having on them.

Danielle 48, former star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey was snapped kissing the R & B singer/VH1 reality star/Kim Kardashian’s ex who is 18 years her junior. The two pictured above at the grand opening of the Lemon Basket restaurant last Wednesday were spotted kissing at the same event.
No word yet on when we can expect a new sex tape from these two but the photo of the kiss is below!
In other news, Danielle, who is set to star on VH1’s upcoming reality show Famous Food, is now speaking out once again against her former costar Teresa Giudice. In a brief interview with Rumor Fix, Danielle reveals she is not surprised Teresa got into a bar brawl and reportedly got punched in the face.
“I’m not shocked at all” said Danielle of Teresa’s involvement in the bar brawl.”She’s an animal.”
Meanwhile, Danielle’s former costar Caroline Manzo is speaking out against her via an interview with Life & Style magazine, explaining why she decided to shun Danielle at the last reunion of the NJ Housewives. If you recall, Danielle attempted to call a truce with Caroline, who refused to hug her.
“I knew she wasn’t sorry,” Caroline tells Life & Style of the shocking moment. “I wasn’t about to let her end the show on a fake positive note. I refused to give her that moment.”
Caroline added that Danielle hasn’t lived up to her promise as she continues to bad mouth her former costars. “During the finale, Danielle offered to stop the war of words,” Caroline states. “But she’s still talking about everyone. She broke her promise. Things have not changed with her one bit. She’s the same person now that she’s always been, and I want nothing to do with her.”
And finally, Danielle also tells E! News that the ratings of the new season will go down the drain without her. “It’s not going to have the ratings,” she said. “I brought the [drama]. People either loved me or hated me, but they were paying attention. This [season] is just full out nasty family fighting. Everyone’s got that. Where’s the element of surprise there?”
