Heidi and Spencer’s Split: One Big Publicity Stunt

Get this for a story pitch: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt split up after a year of marriage, but don’t file any legal papers. The ‘Hills’ starlet moves to a beach house for the summer where she films a reality show with her newly minted BFF. During the course of taping this sure-to-be classic show, Pratt returns to the fold and by the time the finale rolls around, wins back Montag’s heart and they return home to Los Angeles.

While many of you may be hoping Heidi really did ditch Spencer last week, sources inside and outside the family have a different take on the situation.

“It’s really just another one of Spencer’s publicity stunts,” a friend close to the situation admits. “They really are still together. This will all be revealed in time. They aren’t going to separate. It’s all a part of Heidi’s new show.”
The currently untitled show will start production in July. Montag’s friend and co-star, Jennifer Bunney, said the program will “focus on our friendship, getting through things with each other like marriage stuff and boyfriend stuff.”

Getting through the “marriage stuff” should make for great TV, especially when Pratt shows up to repair their relationship. [There are also reports that Pratt’s production company is producing the show.]

But Montag’s sister, Holly, isn’t buying it. “If anyone has come to expect anything from those two is that they are the Liars,” she wrote on Twitter over the weekend.

“This is going to be the best summer of my life!!!” she wrote hours after news of the split broke. She has since had “girls night sleep over” with Bunney and has been enjoying some “Girls only!!!!” time.

Montag was a bit more reserved in her first comments to the press since the split, telling PEOPLE she “needed some alone time.” Adding: “There are so many lies out there about me and I just needed space — even away from my husband.”

“It seems there’s no limits to what they will do for publicity,” our source said.

The pair made a name for themselves as the frenemies of ‘Hills’ star Lauren Conrad. Their relationship and eventual marriage was chronicled on the hit MTV series. Montag and Pratt exchanged vows in April of 2009, in front of 200 guests and an MTV camera crew.
