THE HILLS:Though "author" Lauren Conrad can be a dull prude she is the consciousness that binds the cast o' kooks on The Hills. Having Kristen Cavallari replace her as the antagonist, in a sea of antagonists.... Who will we now look to as the grounding force? Heidi? Brodi? Audrina? Spencer? (Strangely, Spencer does seem the best option ? how weird is that?)
I'M A CELEBRITY, GET ME OUTTA HERE:Speaking of Speidi, getting to watch them out of their element...is not healthy. ("This cast is devaluing my fame," complained Spencer). Seriously, whomever convinced them to venture to the Costa Rican rainforest with nine other psuedo-celebrities (Patty Blagojevich, really?) is on one hand genius, on the other hand sadist. After quitting the show, then going back a number of times, the head-honchos decided Heidi and Spencer needed to be locked in a sort of creepy-crawly chamber of horrors to redeem themselves to the cast and crew (while Heidi and Spencer were hoping to make it all good with Jesus). Though TV execs are less than kind, "They are everything that's wrong with America... they are insincere, lazy, entitled and they claim the devil has possessed them," Executive Vice President of Alternative Programming Paul Telegdy tells Ryan Seacrest. Heidi ended up getting stung or bitten or licked by some unfriendly creature or bacteria and had to go to the hospital for a few days (supposedly with some stomach virus). Concerned fans had to keep up with her drama-status via nut-job Stephanie Pratt's Twitter. (Though Heidi's last Tweet 19 hours ago is the telling, "Starbucks. yummmm" so she must be safe at home).
Oooh, and my favorite IACGMOH quotes:
- "She vandalized my hair product...I would never do that!" -Heidi on the cruelness of the show's other contestants.
- "I'm already the King of America, and I might as well be the King of the Costa Rican Jungle." -Spencer (thriving in his insular world)
- "I have always found it so fascinating, living with Heidi, that every single thing she prays for, to the detail, comes true. For instance, she told me Spencer, say a prayer, really try it. So I did my first prayer, 'God please, the one person I want to go on a double date with is Miley Cyrus, and if you are so powerful, make me hang out with Miley Cyrus', and he did it within a month." -another gem from Spencer Pratt
