Heidi Montag — trapped by her own body


Less than a year after having her breasts enlarged to X-rated proportions (along with a further 11 astounding cosmetic procedures at the same time), reality TV starlet Heidi Montag is finding out the downside of  a G-sized bust.

For one thing, she can’t hug her four dogs (it hurts too much), and then there are the clothing limitations (not much in the way of off-the-peg outfits that size).  Not to mention the fact that they get in the way of regular wheidi boobsork-outs and that she feels “trapped in my own body”, according to Life & Style magazine.

Oh, and all those plastic surgeries also ruined her short-lived marriage to her “The Hills” co-star Spencer Pratt.

Heidi tells Life & Style magazine she is now looking for a plastic surgeon in South America (?) to remove the super-sized implants and bring her down to a smaller D cup. Or  a double D.

Goodbye Speidi. Or just another Heidi and Spencer game?


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 website.  Montag, 23,  cited irreconcilable differences for the split and, we’re told,  “filed the legal docs in her own handwriting”.

“Balloon Boy” and the drive for reality TV fame


Now that authorities say last week’s balloon boy incident was just a hoax, the public is getting re-acquainted with the underside of reality television. Richard and Mayumi Heene, parents of the 6 year-old bothe-heenesy thought to be trapped in a balloon before he was found in an attic, are expected to be charged this week with making up the whole scenario.

If what authorities are saying about the Heenes is true, they may have been hungering for fame, and saw the hoax as a great way to get a reality TV show. As everyone knows by know, the Heenes already starred in a past episode of the reality show “Wife Swap.”

Make or break time for this summer’s reality stars


It’s make or break time for some reality stars — minor celebs who this summer in the U.S. have lingered on television and in the pages of celebrity magazines, making headlines for getting divorcedkourtney-kardashian, getting pregnant or singing a song on stage, and then talking endlessly about the experience. How long will they stay in the news?

Jon Gosselin, the Octodad who audiences of the TLC show “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ rooted for when he was a homebody husband, has endured some negative headlines since the June announcement of his pending divorce. The paparazzi these days are more likely to photograph him with a scantily clad woman in Las Vegas than being a doting dad, and that does nothing for his image. Jon is out there on his own now, his prized Ed Hardy T-shirts blurred out by TLC in his recent appearances on the show, as the program’s ratings continue their freefall.

Heidi Montag claims her “Miss Universe” performance was live


Her “reality” TV show “The Hills” may be largely fake, but current Playboy covergirl Heidi Montag says her recent musical performance at the “Miss Universe” pageant was the real deal, denying the plethora of reports that she was lip-synching her new song “Body Language.”heidi-montag2

Getting into a limousine at Los Angeles International Airport, Montag responded with a smile when a paparazzo asked if Sunday’s performance was lip-synched. “I was as live as live can be,” Montag said.

Heidi Montag fails to win universal praise at Miss Universe


Hollywood’s resident reality TV villain Heidi Montag performed her song “Body Language” at the “Miss Universe” pageant on Sunday, as several critics reacted by saying it was bad — but could have been worse.heidi-montag

Montag, 22, gained fame for appearing on MTV reality show “The Hills,” becoming a TV celebrity before she made her mark with anything resembling what celebrities normally do to get famous, like singing or acting. On “The Hills” and on subsequent TV appearances, Montag has earned a reputation for being a personality whom TV viewers don’t really like, but can’t keep their eyes off.

Speidi “Get me Out of Here!” jungle drama drags on

The first contestant got voted off reality television show “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!” on Thursday night, and (shock) it wasn’t Spencer and Heidi Pratt. All week long, speculation in celebrity media reports has been about whether they would be allowed to return to the TV contest show after seeming to walk off in a huff on Monday’s show and head back to Hollywood.

For those who don’t know, on “I’m a Celebrity,” B-list stars compete in challenges like eating bugs to see who can survive a battle of willpower in a Coast Rican jungle.

Speidi celebrity walkaway, real or a stunt?


speidi1(Writing and reporting by Laura Isensee) Speidi’s on-again, off-again affair with reality television show “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me out of Here!” has kept celebrity watchers guessing whether the newlyweds have quit the show or is their walkaway from the celeb reality show just a big publicity stunt.


There’s no such thing as bad publicity, as they say in showbiz (see Sacha Baron Cohen and his MTV stunt with Eminem), and this back-and-forth is creating buzz for the NBC show, where Hollywood D-listers like “American Idol” contestant Sanjaya Malakar and born again Christian Stephen Baldwin battle for survival — and a return to fame — in a Costa Rican jungle.

Speidi says “get me out of here” after one jungle show??


speidi“I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here” got off to a flying start on Monday — but it appears that the reality survival show’s most talked-about stars may already have quit.

Unless it’s another stunt by publicity-savvy Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag who spent the first episode of the show either playing mind games with their D-list pals in the Costa Rican jungle or wondering how they were going to manage without regular sex for a few weeks.

Lauren Conrad ready to walk away from “The Hills”?


Has Lauren Conrad had enough of life as a reality TV star?


“It’s coming to a point where I love this show so much, but I’m ready to kind of walk away…I’ve been doing it for five years now. Five years on TV is a really, really long time,”  Conrad, 22,  said of life on MTV’s “The Hills” and its predecessor “Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County”.

Asked by Extra about the media attention on her relationships, Conrad said; “It makes it more difficult. It’s more difficult when not only everyone knows about your problems, but they make them worse because things escalate and things get twisted…. It’s hard to have an actual friendship be torn apart in the media.”
