Remember the Shannon twins? They lived with Hugh Hefner in the Playboy mansion until he broke up with them to focus on Crystal Harris. Now, it appears Christina Shannon is moving in with Heidi Montag and Jennifer Bunney. Heidi’s life just keeps getting stranger and stranger.
Heidi Montag might have wanted to sell her planned reality show before letting roommate and fellow Hills exile Jennifer Bunney speak to the press about it. Talking to Us about Heidi’s split from husband Spencer Pratt, Bunney sounds less like a concerned friend discussing a potential divorce than a shill hawking the next season of a TV drama—which she basically is! “They were waiting for The Hills to be over to split. Now she doesn’t have to pretend,” said Bunney, not explaining why splitting on the old show would be “pretending” while splitting now would be “real.” Bunney also says Spencer’s reaction to Heidi’s departure “will be a big aspect of our show.” Gentlemanly of him to let his ex film his alleged heartbreak, isn’t it? Then again, Spencer’s producing the show!
Us‘ anonymous sources—like all the others discussing Heidi’s “alone time”—are even less discreet. “Heidi and Spencer are laughing over [the gossip] and having a blast,” says one. “This breakup is the latest part of Spencer’s master plan,” says another. But will a network sign on for their puppet show if the strings are already showing? Still, we’ll be bummed if their drama—fake or not—doesn’t make it on to TV. Crazy like a fox is still crazy!
With professional reality stars like Heidi Montag, its hard to tell where the real life begins and its exploitation ends. Is Heidi leaving psycho husband Spencer Pratt for a better life or just a better plot line? Heidi’s roommate Jennifer Bunney has already admitted they’ll be filming a new show this Summer—and that Spencer will be part of it (“The show is going to focus on our friendship, getting through things with each other like marriage stuff and boyfriend stuff,” Bunney told Radar). “I needed some alone time,” Heidi told People, saying she and Spencer were “working on things.”
But between Heidi’s excited summer tweets and the focus of her new show, one can be forgiven for assuming the alleged “split” is totally fabricated. “It’s really just another one of Spencer’s publicity stunts,” a source tells PopEater. “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.” While we would have been happy to watch these two preen and photo op, it’s not surprising their post-Hills debut would require a little more drama than that. But considering how long it took them to get legally married, it should be a long while before they legally separate.

After Megan Fox was dropped from Transformers 3, it took just a few days for Michael Bay to decide her replacement would be model Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Still, in Heidi Montag‘s world, that means nothing, and she’s literally gunning for the role even though the deal is virtually sealed.
PopEater reports that Heidi has launched a Twitter campaign to get noticed by Bay and has posted video at a shooting range and engaging in “combat training” in order to prove her action prowess. This isn’t the first time Heidi has talked about wanting to be an action star, so it’s not surprising that she’s going the extra mile to impress Bay. We wonder though, can an action star really kick ass with their back scooped out?
Hey there, Michael Bay! Not sure that we’ve been properly introduced. Here at The FABLife, we’re big fans of the way you are able to subtly wrench powerful emotional performances out of your actors, and we’re surely not the first to tell you that your mise-en-scène would make Truffaut weep with jealousy. Just kidding, we mostly love you because there’s no one better in the business at blowing sh*t up.
And hey, we heard the news that you fired Megan Fox from Transformers 3. We applaud the decision; after all, you can’t let some scrawny, hammer-thumbed bimbette tarnish the directorial legacy that you’ve been building ever since you first stepped behind the lens as the director of Playboy Video Centerfold: Kerri Kendall! Gotta keep your eye on the prize, can’t let one bad apple ruin the bunch, we get it.
But since we’ve heard that you’ve already started filming the third installment of Transformers in Los Angeles, we figured you might need some help finding a new love interest for Shia LaBeouf. To that end, we have gone to the trouble of compiling a list of ten actresses who could replace that ungrateful harlot, Megan Fox, as well as the reasons you’ll want to talk to them. Hopefully this will save you some time and allow you to complete the film in time for its planned release date of July 4, 2012!

Did you watch the last episode of The Hills? While I hated the family meeting format of the “Heidi and Spencer are crazy” session at the end, what the Hills gang said was true. Heidi is in a dangerous position, now that Spencer has spiraled out of control, and it’s hard to say what will happen next. It’s a grab-bag of crazy.
So Heidi Montag wants a restraining order against her mother, she never calls her father, she and Spencer Pratt have stopped speaking to his sister Stephanie and we’ve often wondered, where are his parents in this whole mess? Well, the Pratts are still (for good reason) choosing to stay somewhat anonymous, but Us Weekly reports that they too have distanced themselves from the Botoxic Twins.
A source tells the magazine “They noticed him changing two years ago and stayed by his side. But now it’s too much. They even took the pictures of him out of their home.” Sorry, laser-background school picture of Spencer, you’re outta here! Apparently the estranged feeling is mutual because Spencer stopped talking to them a awhile ago when “he felt his parents would talk to him only about Stephanie and that they charged him with taking care of her.” Which also makes us wonder why, as parents, they weren’t taking care of their drunkorexic daughter themselves, but whatever. These are your celebrities, America. Manipulative media whores who alienate their families and everyone around them and get rich doing it. Sigh.

Happy belated Mother’s Day, Mom! Hope you like being manhandled by the LAPD! That’s roughly what was running through Heidi Montag‘s head when she decided to call the cops on her mother, Darlene Egelhoff, who showed up to Montag’s Los Angeles home today unannounced. Just when you thought they couldn’t be more dysfunctional, right? They had to get the authorities involved because a mother wanted to talk to her daughter.
Heidi explained why she did it to People, saying “I told my mom a while ago I need space from her. And she just showed up at our door unannounced and tried to get in. She was yelling about how I was being held against my will which couldn’t be farther from the truth.” The police advised Egelhoff that she should leave since it’s within Heidi’s rights not to speak to her if she doesn’t want to, and Egelhoff left of her own accord. Well, Heidi may not want to see you, but Darlene, we are here for you. Between Spencer Pratt calling you a “vagina” and reveling in your home’s foreclosure, and the disaster of a body your daughter just created, we’re here if you need a surrogate, un-enhanced daughter-type to hang with.

It seems like just yesterday we heard that Emilio Masella was dumped by his Jersey Shore girlfriend, Snooki. And then, that Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag were producing a reality show for him called Fist Pumping 4 Love. And now, a “trailer” is already being released. Well, kind of.
Spencer Pratt doesn’t save his family hatorade for The Hills. When Heidi Montag‘s hubby found out the bank put property owned by mother-in-law Darlene Egelhoff in foreclosure after she failed to pay off a $189,000 loan, the bearded devil couldn’t bother to hide his glee. “If that’s true,” he told TMZ. “That is the best news I’ve heard all day long.” Seems Spence is still furious about how Egelhoff reacted to her Heidi’s plastic surgery binge on the program. “Anybody who would do what she did to her daughter—my amazing, beautiful, magnificent wife Heidi—on national television…should be put in a straight jacket.” Guess it takes someone who should be committed to know one!
Despite keeping a s—list that includes Heidi’s mom, Heidi’s sister, Spencer’s sister, every woman on The Hills not named Heidi, Snooki and even MIA (“MIA should be kicked out of America today for using the US flag on her Nazi like hit squad in her new music video!”), Spencer’s been oddly quiet on Twitter, not posting since May 3rd after several days of nothing but Fistbumping For Love retweets. Is he pulling a John Mayer on us or is the world really that lucky?
