Famous Food – Episode 8 – Gin And Juicy

|

This week on Famous Food, there were quite a few bad business practices going on. First, there was always troubling designer Scott who walked off the job when he was confronted by DJ Paul for bringing in sub-par, un-Scotchgarded benches. And you KNOW how DJ Paul is when it comes to Scotchgard.

And then there was Juicy J, who puts the juicy in…just about everything. Both men were let go (!), but in our poll, let us know who you think deserved their firing the most.

Juicy and Ashley were both in hot water this week with Dolce Mike and Dolce Lonnie. Ashley was told that her multiple visits to her boyfriend were unacceptable and that she needed to step up her game, and she did by trying to accessorize the restaurant and make it go from drab to fab. (Is that an HGTV show yet? Because it should be.)

While Ashley actually goes out and shops for things, Juicy shows that he is also able to pull his own weight by picking up the booze they need for the soft opening of the restaurant. (Is anyone else greatly turned off by the phrase “soft opening”? The sum of those two words are grosser than their parts.) When I say Juicy was “picking up the booze,” I mean testing an entire bottle for quality control.

Juicy goes on a tear, ripping the restaurant apart when he’s told by Mike and Lonnie that his inebriation will not be tolerated, and he storms off with literally moments to go before the Lemon Basket’s (cough) soft open. So not only is the group down a partner and a designer, but they’re left to pick up the lemon-scented pieces of destruction Juicy left in his wake.

At least two positive things came from this: One, Mike and Lonnie will only have to choose between the lesser of six evils now, down from seven. And two, fortunately for all of us, Heidi’s delicately reconstructed face made of china was nowhere near Juicy when any of this went down and it was spared being shattered for another week.

    She is a joke Danielle Staub of course. She hired Scott she wrote the check Jake even said we need to meet with some other people. She said no And now she is blaming everyone else.

    I think danielle should be out of there. i love how she tries to blame everyone else for her mistakes!..She really doesnt do much but put her 2 cents in about the work everyone else is doing. at least she admitted she couldnt do it without djpaul.

    i will miss u juicy! i said in the beginning i wanted to go to meet u :P
    i cant believe juicy put his own cash up for the cafe and they still kicked him out. they could have just said, NO drinkin while at the shop PERIOD but they never told him he couldnt, they just said slow down.

    ashley shouldnt be leavin, if she didnt go off like that with her man, i think she would win, but im hoping vinny or djpaul wins!!

    I would love to know the last name of the interior designer Scott.

    What happened to that rapper Juicy J. Is he absolutely nuts. He has a alchol problem. His partner is not even telling him your wrong to do the things he’s doing on the show. I was so glad to see them on the show. They had even seemed civil, but now I see where the real motive is stimulated from a get high! Disappointing, really!

    This show is getting better and better. I hope you have one next season. This cast is hilarious. I feel bad for Juicy, but he was warned a couple of times and was getting out of control. They should have had Heidi and him go to a couple of “meetings” after their bartending moments. I hope any of you (Danielle) tweets the Real Housewives of Jersey to watch the show. They, especially Theresa, would get a kick out of it. Danielle is up to the same crap she was on that show. I can’t wait to see the next episode.

    Kudos VH!! I have enjoyed watching this show and its a twist on the usual love reality shows. The cast is great, especially vinnie, 3 six mafia guys, and even danielle who is a witch but i’m glad when she sticks it to ashley .
