Rep Confirms: Heidi Pratt Wasn't Tortured on I'm a Celebrity
Heidi Pratt's rep confirms to Usmagazine.com exclusively that she wasn't tortured on the set of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!.
"There have been many reports that surfaced over the weekend regarding Spencer and Heidi Pratt. Many of these reports are false and inaccurate, including any reports of 'torture' on the show," the rep tells Us.
Us first reported Pratt was rushed to the hospital Saturday night after spending 14 hours in the "Lost Chamber." (She and Spencer were sentenced to the spider-filled room while the cast voted if they could remain on the show after quitting last week.)
TMZ.com reported Heidi was being treated for a gastric ulcer, while Spencer's sister, Stephanie, posted on Twitter: "I'm really saddened to hear that nbc felt it was ok to punish speidi so harshly and torture them as if they 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 w no food or water. Pls pray she will be ok." Pratt's rep clarifies to Us: "What we can say at this time is that Heidi went to a hospital in San Jose, Costa Rica Saturday evening because she was not feeling well.
"She has been released from the hospital and is doing well," the rep goes on. "The couple remains in Costa Rica. In addition, it was reported the Pratts have fired their legal counsel. This is inaccurate." The couple find out out if they'll be allowed to stay on the NBC reality show tonight.
