Joining the plastic surgery-obsessed former Hills star for the series, which will give seven celebs the chance to open their own West Hollywood restaurant? Former Bachelor star Jake Pavelka, Real Housewives of New Jersey villain Danielle Staub, musicians DJ Paul and Juicy "J," singer (and former Eliot Spitzer call girl) Ashley Dupre and The Sopranos' Vincent Pastore.

Going into the one-hour, 10 episode series, Montag knows a thing or two about what it takes to operate a restaurant. Her parents' Crested Butte, Colo., eatery shut its doors last fall after 21 years in business. Montag's mother, Darlene Egelhoff, currently cleans houses as a maid in her hometown.
