Heidi and Spencer tell the Red Cross to fuck off

Heidi and Spencer are quitters

After threatening to quit twice in the first two days, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have officially quit NBC’s I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!. They’re due back in L.A. tonight. I really hope the charity the couple was playing for — the Red Cross — wasn’t expecting too much money. From E!:

All told, the duo’s run will last just two episodes. They will appear in a taped segment of tonight’s show, but will not take part in the live portion of the telecast. Sources confirm to E! News that the Pratts are scheduled to return to Los Angeles just after midnight tonight.

“They’re leaving right after the live portion of the show,” an NBC source said. “The fact that they are leaving the show and deserting their charities is lame.”

The identity of [Heidi and Spencer’s] replacement(s) remains hush-hush at this point, though the DailyFill reports that producers are doing their best to keep it in the family, naming Daniel Baldwin, whose brother Stephen is already on the show, and Heidi’s sister Holly Montag as the top contenders.

Holly as a replacement? Fuck that. The producers have to find a way to get Audrina in that Costa Rican jungle. “Hey Mr. Wilderness Expert, look at this cute little frog I caught! I like petting him because his skin is so soft” . . . “Um Audrina, that’s a poison dart frog. We warned you about those. We even made you watch a 4 hour safety video. You have 6 minutes to live” . . . “Hey, there’s another one! Come back here froggie!”
