Entertainment behind the scenes
Speidi is no more.
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.
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.
She plays a sorority girl who ends up being the victim of a prank gone wrong — which later sparks a killing spree at the sorority.
Reality star Audrina Patridge from MTV show “The Hills” (that’s her on the left in the photo with co-star Lauren Conrad) has a new project – catching a couple who Patridge says broke into her home and burglarized her.
Patridge on Tuesday posted surveillance video at her Web site of a man and woman walking around in her home and grabbing a pair of bags. This comes after Patridge on Monday said she came home the night before and discovered that she had been burglarized. “Most of the items are replaceable, but they took off with a few very sentimental things too,” Patridge wrote.
With Monday’s premiere titled “We’ll Never Be Friends,” it was clear that the fourth-and possibly final-season of MTV’s “The Hills” would not disappoint in the drama department. When we left off with the girls, the roommate situation with Lauren, Audrina and Lo was on thin ice. Last season’s final episode ended with Audrina telling a tear-jerked Lauren about how Lo had come between their friendship, and Monday’s season premiere ended much like that last episode.
Lo ditched Audrina’s birthday party to play with a puppy, and Audrina was understandably mad. When Lo tried to smooth things over, Audrina would have none of it, finally telling Lo: “We’ll never be friends!”
Reality TV star and fledgling fashion designer Lauren Conrad, 22, told celebrity television show “Entertainment Tonight” that her reality program “The Hills,” which will premiere its fourth season on Monday, will have plenty of personal drama in its new season – with a couple reconciliations thrown in the mix.
The show, which follows the lives of young women in Los Angeles, will be all about real emotions, at least as far as Conrad is concerned because the California native said she can’t act.
“I tried (acting) when I first moved to L.A.,” Conrad said to ET. “I took a couple of classes. Awful. Any opportunity you have to make fun of yourself I think is fun to do, but acting is an art and I don’t think I have a talent there.”
Maybe it doesn’t matter. “The Hills” is, after all, a “realilty” show and while she admittedly can’t act, Conrad truly has her eye on designing clothes. She will attend her first Emmy Awards ceremony on Sept. 21, but for her acting. Conrad is designing gowns worn by Emmy presenters.
ET’s interview with Conrad airs on Wednesday night.
