Heidi Montag Cooks Up New Restaurant Reality Show
"The Hills" alum Heidi Montag returns to reality TV in a new competition show called "Famous Food." Montag promises the show will be "very exciting. It's very dramatic. It's very crazy. ...There are several celebrities competing for a partnership in this restaurant, so we're building it from scratch," Heidi explains.
Heidi will compete against other reality stars; "Bachelor" hunk Jake Pavelka and "Real Housewives of New Jersey" villain Danielle Staub. The tasty new series showcases Montag, Pavelka, Staub and four other celebs competing in weekly challenges involving a new West Hollywood eatery. The challenges include creating a concept, marketing, hiring staff and pulling off the grand opening.
Restaurateurs Mike Malin and Lonnie Moorem, founding members of The Dolce Group, will evaluate the team's work and ultimately pick a winner, who will become a partner in the restaurant.
Here's a sample from the menu of "Famous Food," debuting on VH1 July 10.
