I'm very passionate about it," the Dancing With the Stars runner-up told Us Weekly. Although he has no name for the new venture, he’s pretty clear on what name he doesn’t want to use. "I don't really want it to be associated with the Kardashian brand.... I've started several companies before and people don't know about it because I don't vocalize it. Things succeed, they fail, and that's how you start a business venture. So hopefully this succeeds,” he said.
