Jay Mohr is this Season's only Breakout Star on Real Housewives of New Jersey!

In continuing with my theme of this season of The New Jersey Housewives, focusing-on the Bravo-blogs, this week again I'm posting something from Jay Mohr's blog.
He has a free! Podcast. The link that he posts in the Bravo Blog goes to an I-tunes page, but I currently don't have I-tunes running on my machine.
HERE, is the I-tunes link.
I am listening to Jay's podcast right now, but I found it HERE at (clickable)
I didn't have to download anything, but I don't know if its the same podcast that he mentions?
"Explicit"-language is warned-about at the Apple I-Tunes site, and the one that I'm listening-to carries the same warning.
I'm going-to listen to the podcast(s?) while I catch-up on this week's blogs, but I think I'm over the NJ Housewives for this season. Melissa and Joe Gorga are trying very hard, I'll give that to them, but they just don't do anything for me.
The on-going saga of The Giudice's financial mess is starting to become pathetic in a sad way for everyone involved. Joe Giudice looks like he needs to abstain from alcohol, and I don't mean in a Celebrity-Detox with Dr. Drew way, just to stop drinking. He doesn't look healthy and watching someone go downhill like that is not my idea of entertainment.
I guess all that we have to look forward-to is The Ugly Americans beating the crap out of people in a foreign resort, and since I also watched the Mafia Wives reunion on VH1 last night, I think I've had enough of anger and drama for the sake of anger and drama. Sorry, Real Housewives of New Jersey, Mafia Wives beat you to the punch.

Thanks VH-1! Episode 1 "Famous Food" online NOW! YES there is table-throwing

So Danielle Staub's new reality-show on VH-1 causes a schedule conflict for you? (scroll-down and hit play, I've embedded it here)  
The Real Housewives of New Jersey are back on Bravo this Sunday night with a new episode of their own at 10pm. Thanks-to VH1, we can watch the premiere of Famous Food online now, and not miss a thing.
Danielle is still hideous. And she's kept the name "Staub". Like Teresa on RHWONJ, she changed the pronunciation. From, "Staub" rhymes-with "loud", to "Staub", rhymes-with "snob". Aside from that I'd say that she hasn't changed a thing. You can follow the show on Twitter(HerE). where there is also a link to the VH1 page for the show with lots of extras.
Heidi Montag introduces herself with, " You know me as a pop-culture phenomenon."
Danielle quickly takes Heidi aside to form an alliance, because Danielle claims that she and Heidi both have the most influence in Hollywood. (huh?) The conflict is between Vincent, "Big Pussy from The Sopranos", Pastore, and Danielle. Wow-Vincent was in the restaurant biz for 20+ years. Heidi's family was also in-the-biz, and Heidi says that she "grew-up" in it. Danielle says that she's a Foodie, because she's Italian. There are seven contestants who also include a rap-group, The Bachelor's Jake Pavelka, and a prostitution whore.
The show covers a five-week period last Spring where contestants are in a competition to win a restaurant in -partnership with The Dolce Group. It is presented-as, "A competition with one winner" but they must "all work together" to make it happen. I finally recognized Mike Malkin of The Dolce Group from one of the first US seasons of Big Brother.
Remember Mike who went-into the restaurant-owning biz after being-on Big Brother? Well that's him, and they say that they are very successful.
The cast has 28 days to get the restaurant up and running. I watched the 41 minute premiere, along-with umpteen repeats of an interactive granola ad. I have to say that I do want to see more of this. At the very-end in scenes from the future, we see a table being thrown. VH1's Famous Food, just might have a little-bit of everything for Reality television fans. To borrow the theme "Fusion" from the episode, Famous Food feels like a "fusion"-of  The Apprentice, Survivor, (although there are no eliminations that I can see), and maybe even a little-bit of Cheaters, for the sleaze-factor, and of-course WWW, because its fake-as-heck and we're not supposed to say that.
