Heidi Montag tending bar? Jake Pavelka in trouble with the law?
So this is what happens when seven celebrities band together to open a restaurant. On the new VH1 series Famous Food, former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub, Ashley Dupré (aka Eliot Spitzer's ex-call girl), The Sopranos' Vincent Pastore, Three 6 Mafia, Montag (The Hills) and former Bachelor Pavelka must launch...
Reality vixens Heidi Montag and Danielle Staub will face off in the new VH1 series Famous Food.
The 10-episode reality show, slated to premiere in the fall, will give seven celebrities the opportunity to open a West Hollywood eatery. The cast — which includes Montag, Staub, former Bachelor Jake Pavelka, musicians DJ Paul and Juicy "J", Eliot Spitzer's former call girl Ashley Dupre and Sopranos actor Vincent Pastore — will complete various tasks, such as creating a menu and renovating the location.
Sopranos snitch Vincent Pastore has settled a civil suit filed by his ex-fiancée, according to The Associated Press.
Lisa Regina's $5.5 million suit alleged that Pastore hit her during a dispute in 2005. Pastore pleaded guilty that year to attempted assault and was sentenced to 70 hours of community service, but the actor has since claimed his innocence and said he regretted not fighting the charge. During the trial, he testified that he and Regina did get into a loud argument, but he insists he never touched her.
The terms of the settlement deal were not disclosed...
Two "top" soaps are turning to proven baddies to add some ferocity to their canvases.The Young and the Restless has tapped no less than Danny Trejo you know him and have been intimidated by him in any number of big-screen thrillers (The Devil's Rejects, From Dusk 'Til Dawn, Con Air...) to play a bartender who lends Victor his ear when the tycoon passes through Mexico. Trejo first airs Aug. 11. At General Hospital, Vincent Pastore who is perhaps best known as The Sopranos' Big "Kitty" (sorry, had to work around the blog's language filter) is coming on board this October as doctor lawyer business tycoon firefighter philanthropist WSB agent mobster Maximus Giambetti, aka Max and Milo's pop. Pastore is also a part of a new promotional campaign touting daytime television's "unlikely" fans.

Well, that didn't take long. Three days into the new year and I already have a strong candidate for my 2008 worst-of-the-year list: Celebrity Apprentice, which we have to hope is the last gasp for this out-of-gas reality franchise.Enlisting C-listers (which in most cases is a generous label) is the final desperate refuge for most shows in this oversaturated genre, but even by that standard, Celebrity Apprentice is pathetic. As is its attempt to turn the overexposed Omarosa into this season's ice-queen bitch villainess and the instantly tiresome Piers Morgan (the cut-rate Simon Cowell wannabe from summer time-waster America's Got Talent) into her "arrogant English bastard" nemesis (that phrase coined in a teaser by Vincent Pastore, who should have taken his early rubbing-out on The Sopranos as a sign to fade away gracefully).At least Rob and Amber were nowhere to be seen. That's the best thing I can say about this new cycle of Trump-fueled pomposity, which appears to have permanently...
