Why were p.r. maven Lizzie Grubman and music manager Larry Rudolph having a hush, hush lunch together in NYC on Jan. 26? One spy saw the power duo having lunch at swanky eatery Trattoria Dell’Arte on Seventh Avenue.  The source tells us, “there is definitely a deal in the works between them!”

Fierce combo! Lizzie is known for running the p.r. agency Lizzie Grubman PR and management company, Lizzie Grubman Management.  And long before we had The Hills or Jersey Shore, Lizzie starred in the reality show PoweR Girls on MTV.

And Larry is credited for discovering Britney Spears, who he currently manages.  He’s also represented Nick Lachey, Jessica Simpson, and Justin Timberlake as a music manager in the past!

If these two partnered together, Britney Spears, Pauly D, Shanna Moakler, Billy Baldwin, and Chynna Phillips would all be under the same management.

Lizzie did not return our calls.
