Kardashian, Armstrong and More: Five Celebrities We Want to See Open a Miami Restaurant
With the South Beach Wine & Food Festival a mere stone's throw away, we can't help but think of all the traffic, money, and celebrities the bash will bring.

Sure, South Beach will be a pain in the ass to get around for those four days, but take into account all the tourism money and publicity this city receives, and it totally balances out.
We're all expecting the usuals: Paula Deen, Andrew Zimmern, Anthony Bourdain, Michael Symon. But for them to open a restaurant wouldn't be that much of a surprise. They are, after all, chefs and home cooking extraordinaires. A place from them is almost expected.
Let's instead take a look at five celebrities we'd like to see open a space. None have the slightest connection to food, or the restaurant industry, or good taste in general.
5. June We'll bet you were expecting a Hollywood superstar to be our first pick.
GLAD WE DIDN'T DISAPPOINT YOU!
June "Mama" Shannon is more famous than you'll ever be. And she PROBABLY knows more about Southern cooking than the person sitting next to you. That's why we want Mama to open up a Southern-style restaurant that specializes in home cooked fried chicken, oodles of canned vegetables slathered in butter, and of course "skeddi" (ketchup, butter, and spaghetti noodles). We personally think it'll be a hit.
4. Lance Armstrong

Recently in the news for admitting to doping his trails on the Tour(s) de France(s), Lance Armstrong would make the perfect celeb to open a protein shake and smoothie shop on South Beach. Smoothie King is overrated and outdated -- now's the time for something new. It could be called "LieStrong," and one of the specialty smoothies could have the extract of bull testicle in it. Andrew Zimmern would totally be into it. Speaking of Food Network, it's totally the kind of place Guy Fieri would feature on his show Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Bull balls = Flavor Town.
