Heidi and Spencer are pitiful

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have already tried to quit NBC’s I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! twice, but were convinced by producers to stay on. Oh, and it’s only the second day of filming. From E!:

“They wanted to be treated like stars,” a high-level source on the series tells E! News’ Ryan Seacrest. “[Spencer] literally thought he and Heidi were staying in a Four Seasons, working out and getting a tan.”

The two refused to eat the same food as the rest of the cast, and complained about being teamed with low-wattage stars, among them former model/reality-show queen Janice Dickinson, actors Stephen Baldwin and Lou Diamond Phillips, former NBA star John Salley and American Idol castoff Sanjaya Malakar. An NBC exec had to coax the newlyweds to remain on board.

“I wish they got some real celebrities like K-Fed,” groused Montag, per the network insider.

Thank god Heidi and Spencer were convinced to stay on the show. Because the more time they spend in the jungles of Costa Rica, the better chance they have of catching some crazy tropical disease. Personally I’m hoping they catch the rare shutthefuckupitis, a debilitating virus that attacks the vocal cords.
