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.

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.
The HollywoodLife blog is reporting that DWTS executives are angling to have the Bachelorette star on for next season, and have even officially asked her to join the cast.
And similar to those before her aka Jake Pavelka and Melissa Rycroft, it appears Ashley is interested. “They are in negotiations, and it is definitely hers if she wants it,” reveals a DWTS insider.
In other news, Life & Style magazine is now reporting that Chris Lambton, former Bachelorette contestant from Ali Fedotowsky’sseason, is engaged! Chris popped the question to his girlfriend and fellow Bachelor alum Peyton Wright who said yes.
“I found the love of my life in Peyton,” Chris tellsLife & Style. “We are so incredibly happy together. She was worth the wait.”
Good for Chris as if you recall, he turned down the opportunity to be the Bachelor a year ago after he started dating Peyton. That decision seems to have paid off today as Brad Womack who went on to become the Bachelorhas not had as much luck with his love life.
Congrats to Chris and Peyton! The couple started dating last August.

In today’s shocking news, former Bachelor winner Shayne Lamas is still going strong with husband of a year Nik Richie. If you recall, the two tied the knot last year in April after only knowing each other for a few hours.
Not as shocking is the news that Shayne, winner of the Bachelor Season 12, is now pregnant! “The Lamas-Richie family is happy, healthy and definitely pregnant,” tweeted Shayne, 25, early Wednesday.
As for Nik, founder of the popular site thedirty.com, he tells Radar Online he is “really excited.” Nik adds, “I like her boobs more right now.”
Nik also makes it clear he would rather have a boy. “If I have a girl I’ll probably never talk to the kid, probably file for divorce,” he joked. “She’ll have an eating disorder by age two.” Shayne is reportedly due on 11-11-11. New bikini photos of Shayne showing off her baby bump below!
In other Bachelor alum news, the Rumorfix is reporting that Jake Pavelkais now dating Gia Allemand, one of the ladies he eliminated on his season.
The site reports Jake went surfing with Gia Sunday in Manhattan Beach, California with the duo also having a dinner date at popular restaurant Katsuya the same weekend. “I officially am obsessed with surfing….” tweeted Gia on Sunday night. “Awesome day of surfing in Manhattan Beach!” tweeted Jake the same night.

According to reports, the untitled show being filmed for the VH1 network will follow the z-list reality stars as they attempt to get help for their addiction to fame? No! Of course not! They will attempt to open up a new restaurant in just 28 days!
“They are revamping a restaurant from the ground up,” says a source on the set of the new reality series to PEOPLE. “They started shooting this past weekend.”
Danielle recently tweeted, “I’m working on a project. Let you know soon what and with whom!! Xxoo.” Jake also tweeted on Tuesday, “Crazy fun day of shooting!” No word yet on what happened to Jake being a “pilot.”
And it gets even better as there are three more cast members joining the above “stars” on the show. They are Ashley Dupre – aka the world’s most famous call-girl, plus Three 6 Mafia rappers DJ Paul and Juicy J.
