Heidi Pratt’s ‘Hospitalization’ Is One Giant Reality TV Mess

So much of the story that ensues – the premise of the show, the extent of the Pratts’ involvement, whether or not Heidi sustained any kind of injuries or sickness, the entire dimension in which it takes place! – could be or probably is utter and complete bullshit. Take, for example, a statement obtained by E! via one Mr. Paul Telegdy:

About this Telegdy fellow: he works under Ben Silverman at NBC, heading up reality programming. Our source explains that Telegdy was the one who recruited the Pratts for the show, capitalizing on their desire to transition from cable stars to network television properties. Telegdy – a British, former BBC exec, to paint the picture – had to fly down to Costa Rica himself to convince the Pratts to stay on the show after they realized that (1) the other celebrities sucked, (2) they’d actually have to do the stunts (eating bugs, etc) and (3) they wanted more money to do it. They walked off the set, and Telegdy came in and negotiated a higher salary for the Pratts to hang in there. They still weren’t happy.
