Being a celebrity allows you to do a lot of things that the regular Joe cannot; including opening a restaurant. Celebs need to remember that just because you can act, sing, wrestle or play a sport doesn't mean you know anything about being in the restaurant business. From awful themes to terrible food to overspending and not knowing the first thing about operating a business; these restaurants really had no chance of making it in this highly competitive business.
From restaurants that lasted a mere five months to others that managed to stay afloat for years there is one theme in common; most celebrities have no business running a restaurant. Fortunately for these celebs; there are so many celebrity ruined restaurants that these epic fails didn't hurt their incomes.
The worst offenders are the celebrities that not just tried once but twice and in the case of Flavor Flav a whopping third time; only to fail once more. From a fashion café that featured skinny people in form fitting clothes to a themed submarine restaurant to Hulk Hogan in a chef’s outfit cooking pasta, these are the ten most epic celebrity restaurant fails.
10 Pastamania- Hulk Hogan
9 The Fashion Café- Naomi Campbell, Elle Macpherson, Claudia Schiffer, and Christy Turlington.
8 SHe by Morton’s- Eva Longoria
7 Alaia- Stephen and William Baldwin
6 VegiTerranean- Chrissie Hynde
5 Lemon Basket- Danielle Staub
4 Café Dupri- Jermaine Dupri
3 NYLA- Britney Spears
2 Dive- Steven Spielberg
1 Flavor Flav’s Fried Chicken
Guilty of having the most restaurant fails is celebrity Flavor-Flav topping the number at three. With three separate locations closing within six months of opening we highly suggest this guy stay away from the restaurant business. From rent paying issues to being sued to management issues, the list of problems seems never ending with this celebrity. In 2013 he shut down the last location of his chain over a dispute with the landlord and although the chicken was said to be delicious, this guy just couldn't make this work.
