"Famous Food" (VH1 TV show) is a reality docu-series about seven celebrities working together to open a restaurant in Los Angeles.

From Ashton Kutcher's Geisha House to Robert DeNiro's Ago, attaching a celebrity's name to a restaurant is definitely a growing trend in Hollywood…. but is it always a recipe for success? VH1 puts the concept to the test by partnering with renowned restaurateurs, The Dolce Group, to give seven celebrities the chance to turn one of their West Hollywood, California, properties into a flourishing and fully-operating restaurant. Joining the cast is Heidi Montag ("The Hills"), who not only has a passion for food, but also knows a thing or two about the restaurant business, especially after dealing with the unfortunate demise of her parent's restaurant. Academy Award-Winning artists, DJ Paul and Juicy "J" from rap group Three 6 Mafia, who both have experience in the kitchen and have dreams of hosting a cooking show, will finally be given the opportunity to bring their culinary expertise to the table. Working with them, a cast of food connoisseurs in their own right, Danielle Staub ("Real Housewives of New Jersey"), Jake Pavelka ("The Bachelor"), Ashley Dupre (singer) and Vincent Pastore ("The Sopranos") have always had the desire to pursue their visions and conquer the restaurant world. For eight weeks, this colorful crew of celebrities will roll up their sleeves and work together to launch their own restaurant, aptly named, "Famous Food."

Mike Malin and Lonnie Moore are the founding members of The Dolce Group and they define what it takes to open a successful celebrity restaurant. Some of their well-known Hollywood establishments include Ketchup, Angels & Kings, Geisha House, Ten Pin Alley, rare 120, Wonderland and Dolce. Over the course of the series "Famous Food," Mike and Lonnie will provide the cast with a variety of tasks that need to be completed in order to get the restaurant off the ground. The cast will be tackling such duties as renovating the space, agreeing on a restaurant concept, creating marketing plans, crafting a menu, hiring the staff and eventually, ensuring a flawless grand-opening. Every week it will be up to the team to work together and complete their list of tasks, while Mike and Lonnie review their progress. The season will conclude with the finale episode featuring the grand opening of one lucky restaurateur's dream restaurant open for business and ready for the public's review.

After the restaurant's grand opening, Mike and Lonnie will assess the celebrities' individual achievements (and failures). Whoever they deem the most deserving, will ultimately be awarded a partnership stake in the restaurant. In the end, only the most valuable star will come out on the top while the rest will leave with nothing.

I think Three Sixth Mafia should win the since they brought in most of the money&guest to drink up booze&eat up all food. And from their experience in the music industry they are very highly qualified when comes to kicking *** or what I meant to say running a major business or restaurant. Just make sure there are no fish bowls around for Juicy J. Lol. and everything will run smoothly.
