Carla Pellegrino is out of Meatball Spot and pop princess Britney Spears is in. Pellegrino, who starred on Top Chef: Seattle, tells gossip columnist Norm Clarke she is no longer involved with the restaurant at Town Square.
But the news doesn't stop there. Pop star Spears will have partial ownership of the restaurant, which plans to make the move to Planet Hollywood Resort. The restaurant will take a spot next to the theater where Spears has a residency coming. Earlier this year, Spears was in talks with Meatball Spot to open locations in California.
Pellegrino says she is working on opening a second version of her Bratalian Neapolitan Cantina, last reported to be near Boca Park or Downtown.
