More Speidi drama ensued this weekend. “The Hills” star, Heidi Montag, is in a Costa Rican hospital. After her and husband Spencer Pratt spent some time alone in the Lost Chamber as punishment for their “behavior” upon quitting and returning to the NBC show “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here”, Heidi got sick. Sources are saying that after only receiving rice, beans and water that Heidi started vomiting and has been “diagnosed with a gastric ulcer.” Spencer is currently by her side in the hospital and her family is en route to be with her in Costa Rica. Her sister in law is speaking out and is very upset with NBC and the treatment of Heidi and Spencer. On Twitter Stephanie Pratt says, “I’m really saddened to hear that NBC felt it was OK to punish Speidi so harshly – torture them as if there 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 with no food or water. [Please] pray she will be OK.” I cannot say for sure but 3 days with no food or water – I am thinking she is exaggerating a bit. Most reports say it was just overnight. So does this mean the pair really won’t be back on the show this time??
