Hollywood actor Lou Diamond Phillips was crowned the champion of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! During Wednesday night’s lives finale broadcast on the NBC, co host Damien Fahey announced Phillips as “King of the Jungle”.
“This experience has proven to be so much greater than I expected it to be,” Phillips said in a video clip that aired before his triumph was revealed. “I expected it to be a competition. I expected it to be hard. What I did not expect was the emotional bonds that we’ve created, the foundation of relationships that will go on from here.”
The final three included retired NBA player John Salley , Former wrestler Torrie Wilson and of course Phillips. The winner was determined by viewers voting. Phillips made an impression on viewers and also fellow celebrity cast.
Salley was the first of the three remaining finalists to be eliminated from the finale based on the voting results of Tuesday night, leaving Phillips and Wilson to duke it out.
“The public has decided and voted and I can honestly tell you two that it was incredibly close. Incredibly close,” Fahey told the pair before revealing Wilson Phillips’ victory.
“Congratulations, you deserve it,” Wilson told Phillips as she immediately embraced him.
Other celebrities on the show were former American Idol finalist Sanjaya Malakar,former supermodel Janice Dickinson, Patti Blagojevich, the wife of indicted former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, Baldwin brother actors Stephen Baldwin, and Daniel Baldwin; “Frangela” comedy duo members Frances Callier and Angela V. Shelton, and The Hills stars Spencer Pratt, his new wife Heidi Montag and her older sister Holly Montag also competed on the show.
First it was Kristin Cavallari all but confirming that MTV’s The Hills is fake. Now it’s Lauren Conrad’s turn. Lauren appeared on the View yesterday, and surprisingly admitted that the infamous apology phone call she received from Spencer Pratt was fake. She said she was not on the other line for that phone call.
Lauren was asked by Elisabeth Hasselbeck, “Did you feel like it was a sincere apology when it came from him?” Lauren smiled, paused and rolled her eyes before answering – “To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t on the other end of that call,” Conrad replied. “That was filmed, and I wasn’t on the other end. So I didn’t even know about it until [it was on TV]. So, no, I didn’t get an apology. He lied.”
So why did she agree to go to their wedding if she never got an apology?
“It’s hard to understand now, but a long time ago — years ago — we moved here together, and we were best friends, and we used to say, ‘Some day at our wedding….,'” Conrad said. “I just felt like it was a few hours of my time, and as much as I didn’t agree with it, I might some day regret not doing it.”
So basically Spencernever apologized for spreading those sex tape rumors. MTV should just go ahead and call this show a soap opera instead of a reality show. Are people still watching this show? I pretty much stopped watching a few seasons back.
Just when you thought they were gone for good, Heidi and Spencer Pratt have decided one more time that they need more attention.
The two Hills stars will be returning toI’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! again, Usmagazine confirms, despite several attempts to quit before officially leaving the show on June 8.
They will both be joining the entire cast of the NBC reality series on the June 25 finale. They will also be joined by Heidi’s sister, Holly Montag, who made her debut on the I’m a Celebrity last week.
Holly and JaniceDickinson were both eliminated from last night’s episode.
The Hills star, Stephanie Pratt, talks to Us Weekly magazine this week about hating her body and her terrifying secret struggle with bulimia.
Stephanie opens up about her eating disorder for the first time, saying it was sparked by the pressure of appearing alongside her super-thin friends on the hit MTV reality show. I’m guessing the “super thin” friends would have to include Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge, Heidi Pratt, and pretty much every female that ever appeared on The Hills.
Stephanie, who is described as being 5-foot-7 also reveals to US that she began bingeing and purging after watching a scene she shot with Lauren Conrad in 2007 after first joining the cast: “I was horrified. I remember saying, ‘I can’t believe how huge I look walking over to Lauren.'”
The cover story also teases about how Stephanie once attempted suicide. Hmm, will be reserving my personal comments on this one.
Heidi Montag seems to love the spotlight. First, she married her Hills co-star Spencer Pratt after faking a first wedding. Then the reality star stirred a lot of trouble on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here before she was hospitalized and finally off the show.
According to PEOPLE magazine, the newlywed has posed for the September issue of Playboy. Somehow we didn’t see that coming.
Details of her Playboy photos are, um, scant: “There is nudity. It’s tasteful – she had a lot of fun with it,” says a second source. A rep for the magazine had no comment, and Montag’s rep was not available to respond to questions.
First, Heidi Pratt was rushed to the hospital from the show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, it now seems to be Janice Dickinson’s turn. The former model and oldest contestant on the show was rushed to a hospital with a medical emergency. She was transferred by an ambulance this weekend to a medical clinic for treatment.
Not only had Janice complained of hunger, but she also complained of bronchitis during the show. During yesterday’s episode on NBC, Dickinson returned back to the set feeling and looking much better.
First the duo, Heidi and Spencer Pratt tried to quit a couple of times before they finally quit, only to return. They were placed in the “Lost Chamber” for 14 hours. (She and Spencer were sentenced to the spider-filled room while the cast voted if they could remain on the show after quitting last week.)
According to their rep, several false and inaccurate reports were circulating that the duo were tortured. Heidi Pratt’s rep confirms to Usmagazine exclusively that she wasn’t tortured on the set of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!.
Following the Pratts getting out of the lost chamber, Heidi was rushed to the hospital Saturday night.
TMZ reported Heidi was being treated for a gastric ulcer, while Spencer’s sister, Stephanie, seems to blame NBC. She posted on Twitter: “I’m really saddened to hear that NBC felt it was ok to punish speidi so harshly and torture them as if they were criminals — that Heidi was…rushed to the hospital and has an IV in her arm after being locked in a dark room for 3 days w no food or water. Pls pray she will be ok.”
“She has been released from the hospital and is doing well,” the rep goes on. “The couple remains in Costa Rica. In addition, it was reported the Pratts have fired their legal counsel. This is inaccurate.”
