Goodbye Speidi. Or just another Heidi and Spencer game?

June 9, 2010

Speidi is no more.

(Maybe)

Heidi Montag, the plastic surgery enhanced star of MTV’s “The Hills”,  has filed papers for a legal separation from her husband of 14 months, Spencer Pratt.

Montag conveniently managed to get herself photographed leaving a Santa Monica court house on Tuesday clutching a bundle of papers which quickly made their way to the TMZ.com website.  Montag, 23,  cited irreconcilable differences for the split and, we’re told,  “filed the legal docs in her own handwriting”.

Montag first moved out the home she shared with the scheming Pratt a couple of weeks ago saying she “needed some alone time.” But with no divorce or other papers to back up her claims, friends and much of the media weren’t buying the split and saw it more as a publicity stunt. Moreover, she moved in with her “Hills” friend Jennifer Bunney, with whom she just happens to be  filming a new reality show about… relationships.audrina

Despite some of the more outrageous claims about Pratt’s behavior from the Heidi camp (controlling, isolated her from friends etc.), Montag pointedly filed for separation rather than divorce. And separations can be undone.

Montag’s cast mates from “The Hills” have mostly dismissed the stories of a split as a publicity stunt.

“I think it’s a joke,” Audrina Patridge said at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday (pictured at right). “I don’t believe it. They’re inseparable and in love.”

Whether Heidi’s separation is as fake as her new chest remains to be seen.  But whatever the truth of the matter, the pair are getting just what they seem to crave.

Publicity.
