Ready or not, NBC will be punishing gracing us tonight with the premier of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! I can’t help but feel that there should be quotation marks around celebrity in that title. I was going to simply say no to this reality show until I saw the above photo. The thought of the infamous douche aka Spencer Pratt possibly catching a beat down is worth the torture of watching this show.
The show premiers tonight on NBC at 8/7c. Joining Heidi and Spencer Pratt will be Janice Dickenson, Lou Diamond Phillips, Stephen Baldwin, American Idol alum Sanjaya Malakar, and Patti Blagojevich, the wife of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojovich— as they all compete to win money for charity.
As we reported earlier, Laguna Hill alumni and nemesis of Lauren Conrad, Kristin Cavallari is set to replace her on The Hills. Well it has now been officially confirmed. The 22-year old’s first appearance will be the May 31st season finale (she catches the bouquet at Heidi and Spencer’s wedding, natch), she is then set to appear in 10 episodes this fall.
Kristin says she is fully prepared to stir things up. “It’s a TV show,” she explains. “I’m not going into it like, ‘I’m going to make great friendships with these people.’ It’s work! And drama sells. I think that’s why they’re bringing me in, because I know what works.” Cavallari had plenty more to reveal in her exclusive interview with EW.
On why she’s coming back to reality TV:
“The goal for me is to get my fans excited about me again. When I first started out, I had a celebrity name but I didn’t have the acting skills I have now. If I have some buzz with my name again, I feel like it will only help.”
On rumors that producers are plotting a romance between her and Justin Bobby (which The Hills producers deny):
“I have no idea! [laughs] I don’t think MTV would be like, ‘Oh you’re dating him now. This is your boyfriend.’ But they might try and set up situations. I’m totally cool with that. Again, it’s a TV show and they need to make it entertaining.”
On how her version of TheHills will differ from Lauren’s:
“I’m a completely different person than Lauren. I have a lot more energy. I’m more outgoing. I’m a little more spontaneous. And she has a boyfriend so she’s not dating on the show. I’m very open to dating and finding a guy.”
On introducing Heidi and Spencer:
“It’s so funny. I guess it was 4 years ago. I was dating Brody [Jenner] and Spencer was Brody’s best friend. I had known Heidi when she was friends with Lauren when we were still filming Laguna Beach. Heidi was like, ‘Hook me up with someone. I wanna meet a guy.’ And Brody and I were kinda like, ‘Well, maybe Spencer?’ We’ll see what happens.’ So we all went on a double date and they just hit it off right away and now they’re married.”
So it’s safe to draw from this interview that the Hills is now completely fake, and the producers pretty much write all the story lines.
MTV is making certain their top rated “reality” show will be returning for another season, even without the star of the show aka Lauren Conrad.
The folks at MTV released the following statement – “Spencer and Heidi will be newlyweds, so the stakes are higher than ever before for the two to make things work,” adds MTV. “Viewers will find out life in Los Angeles only gets more complicated as friendships, relationships and loyalties are tested like never before.”
Returning next season will be Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge, Spencer Pratt, Brody Jenner, Stephanie Pratt, Lo Bosworth, Justin Bobby and “fresh faces,” will be back, the network teases in a statement. It is rumored that one of the fresh new faces will be Laguna Beach alum Kristin Cavalleri will be one of the “new faces” next season.
The two douchebags known as Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag finally tied the knot this time. Despite faking a wedding last year, the two made sure this one was legitimate. TMZ reported the couple got a legit marriage license last week.
It is also reported that their Hills costar Lauren Conrad attended the wedding.
Alas! After years and years of denial, Spencer Pratt has finally admitted responsibility for spreading the sex tape rumors according to Lauren Conrad. At a Hills panel Tuesday in Hollywood, Lauren revealed that Spencer finally admitted that he was the one who spread the nasty rumors involving her and then boyfriend Jason Wahler.
“We actually have it on tape where he takes responsibility and apologizes for it,” says Lauren. “Sorry! Spoiler! Hey, four years, I waited for that!” Lauren also admits to being on more friendlier terms with both Spencer and Heidi these days saying, “We’re friendly, we can be in the same room.”
So will she be attending their wedding this weekend? “I think it was very nice of her to invite me, but I don’t think she expected me to come,” she said. We’ll take that as a big NO.
In what looks to be nothing short of a freak show, The Hills stars Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag met up with ousted Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich this week in LA to take promo pictures for NBC’s new reality show – I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!
The attention whoring reality show couple have signed up to appear on the new reality show scheduled to air this summer. Ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich was also signed on for the show, but dropped out when a judge ruled earlier this week that he is not allowed to leave the country while still under investigation. He however for some reason still decided to fly out to LA to take promo pictures.
The show is set to premiere on NBC on June 1. It will involve dropping 10 celebrities into a Costa Rican jungle to face challenges and elimination.
The other “celebrities” signed on for the show include –
The two fame whores known as Heidi and Spencer are said to be planning a new wedding to air on The Hills this season. Which would make sense being that the last wedding they had in November was a complete fake, and a cheap publicity stunt.
“This will be the real wedding,” says a source close to the couple. “It’s being filmed as the season finale for The Hills.”
The controversial reality couple are said to have invited about 110 guests to the nuptials, but the list is expected to grow larger as the wedding date nears. A source says the couple plans to wed in a sunset ceremony and is looking at a rooftop location for a reception. Wishing these two would just go away already.
MTV has come out denying news that Lauren Conrad was filming some fake scenes for their hit show The Hills. Lauren announced her departure from the Hills earlier this year, and according to reports, she stopped filming for this season in March.
Well the problem with that is filming is still going on for the other cast members, and they need to get enough footage of Lauren to last through the entire season. So what do the producers do? Well according to NY Daily news, their solution included taping as much LC as they could before she left for good. Which included taping fake scenes for the show. “The producers would make Lauren react to a lot of potential scenarios, because they’re not yet sure how the finale will play out with the other characters,” says the source. “They would literally give her directions like, ‘Now react to Stephanie Pratt being pregnant!’ Lauren would just giggle and go for it. She also had to pretend to react to a fake story line about Audrina and Brody hooking up.”
The rumor of the Hills being fake has been rampant for the past few seasons. And it’s quite easy to believe considering some of the dialogue and well Spencer & Heidi. A rep for MTV denied the story saying, “We couldn’t cut a show with Lauren’s fake reactions.”
