It's like Celebrity Apprentice, but with a restaurant and since it's on VH1, so much trashier! We're HOOKED!
The Dolce Group has picked a mix of music, tv, film, and tabloid stars to work together to open a new Hollywood hot spot on the Sunset Strip, while COMPETING to be a partner!
Heidi Montag, Real Housewife Danielle Staub, The Bachelor’s Jake Pavelka, actor Vincent Pastore, Oscar-winning rappers Three 6 Mafia and former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s ex-call girl Ashley Dupre have 28 days to successfully open up a trendy eatery on VH1's Famous Food, while flipping, kicking, and punching each other every step along the way.
LOLz! We can't wait.
Check out the dramz filled trailer above to see what we're talking about.
Heidi Montag was photographed in a bikini for the first time since April 2010, and while she looks great, it sounds like she may have pushed too hard to get there!
Montag says that she works out almost non-stop:
Not smart, bb!
She details one night, which she feared was her last, when she felt the effects of mixing a generic Ambien-like sleeping medication with wine, saying:
“My heart started pounding and wouldn’t stop racing. At the same time, I felt an intense tightening and pain surrounding my heart, I thought I might be having a heart attack.”
Darlene says she has always struggled with heart palpitations and insomnia. Since losing her Colorado restaurant and financial stability, she has also dipped into depression often soothed by alcohol.
This sounds like a DANGEROUS combination!
While talking about her prescription sleep aids, he said on her blog:
“I was loving them (the sleeping pills). I had been on them for a couple weeks when I had a bad reaction, likely because I was also drinking wine which it says not to do I discovered later. My brother Rip always joked that those labels were wrong, that all medications were way better with alcohol! He also enjoyed many drugs recreationally for the majority of his adulthood which likely contributed to his depression and ulitimaltey [sic] taking his own life.”
Yes dear, they probably did contribute to his unfortunate death, but we truly hope you learned your lesson after this close call and do not follow down the path your brother took.
Despite her fincial difficulty, which includes $100,000 of unpaid debt and her strained relationship with Heidi, whom she reportedly hasn't talked to for months, Darlene is taking steps to improve her life.
“I decided to take as strong an approach as possible holistically and spiritually… Chronic Insomnia is typically rooted in anxiety and stress, clearly my problem as well…I have eliminated all caffeine, sugar and alcohol and am only eating whole foods, nothing processed in any way. Foods high in omega 3′s, chromium, 5 HTP, tryptophan, B vitamins, folate, amino acids to produce serotonin, which helps with positive moods and emotions, and eating regulary to keep my blood sugar levels on an even keel. Aerobic exercise and sunlight every day.”
We're glad to hear your taking steps to make positive changes in your life to improve your physical and mental health!
You may be down, but you're not out. We hope you are able to stay strong and fight through this rough patch in your life!

If you check her Twitter now, you'll see that she seems pretty okay with the issue, tweeting:
Now that I have seen the New Issue of Life&Style myself, I think it is great, very honest and candid. I love you @Life_and_Style Thank you!
But if you caught her page just a few hours earlier, you would have read a very different reaction. Initially, Heidi tweeted:
"just saw the new Life & Style cover…I am shocked and horrified."
Whoa! Talk about a change of heart! Wonder what brought that on?

Now she’s finally revealing the after-effects of surgery — scars. Heidi has expressed some deep regrets about the surgeries:
"Parts of my body definitely look worse than they did presurgery. This is not what I signed up for."
Heidi went into details on her scars with Life and Style:
"The big dark mark from my chin reduction is probably the most noticeable. But the absolute worst is on my breasts, and the scariest is below my butt cheek. People have fewer scars from car accidents than I have on my body."
We feel sort of sorry for Heidi…
At least she's learned something from this!

Reality TV show, drastic plastic surgery, near bankruptcy, martial arts.
It’s a classic celebrity progression.
"I have spent millions on security in the last four years because I had to take care of the cost all on my own. It's crazy and it's hard, but life is not always fair.”
Heidi says that because of her and Spencer’s financial troubles, they’ve had to make a lot of changes in their lifestyle:
"I have had to change my life. I can't afford to go out to the clubs anymore because the sort of protection I need can cost anywhere from five to 10 thousand dollars a night … when you travel it's even worse, because you need to cover the guards travel, food lodging, etc and pay them. That is actually where all my money went because safety is number one."
While we’re not sure that knowing martial arts will help Heidi fight off mobs of paparazzi and fans, we think it’s a good idea for everyone to know a little self-defense!

Dawn DaLuise, a friend of Ryan's family, says:
"It's desecrating him, it's denigrating a person who can't defend themselves. It's really abhorrent."
Published emails between the doctor and Montag show the surgeon asking if she wanted injectibles such as Botox and if she could wear T-shirts promoting his children's foundation.
DaLuise counters the suggestive rumors and says Ryan would routinely ask his celebrity clients to visit the charity's ranch to publicize the foundation and offer them touch-up procedures in between surgeries, adding:
"The difference between offering Botox and performing surgery is similar to a well-meaning dentist encouraging patients to floss and brush daily versus offering to do root canal on every tooth."
Hmm, it's not hard to believe that a PR hungry Montag may have blown up the situation for more than it was worth, but it's not hard to believe that a plastic surgeon would take advantage of a patient like Montag either.
We're on the fence.
What do U think?
