Generally, Heidi Montag lets her mouth and body run wild. There is very little in the way of publicity that The Hills star would ever shun or consider a negative thing.
But when photos of her topless were thought to have been unaccounted for - potentially jeopardizing a bigger deal for her to sell them - that meant panic mode!
In November, her assistant lost a camera containing Heidi Montag plastic surgery pics as Heidi was being transported from the hospital where she got implants.
After Heidi was dropped off at a private recovery center, her assistant realized a camera containing many photos - mostly showing a topless Heidi - was M.I.A.
Sources say the assistant called in a red alert to the ambulance after it left the recovery center and ordered the driver to turn around, but she didn't say why.
In the end, Heidi got her camera back, and one of the photos is featured in this week's People ...we're guessing for a lot of $$$. That's how Spencer Pratt rolls.
Speidi? Lost photo ops? Panic! [Photo: PacificCoastNewsOnline.com]
In other Heidi news, she walked into her house Wednesday with her face concealed, so photos of her newly enhanced (?) face would be unveiled by People first.
Police were summoned with a report of a possible kidnapping.
After officers arrived in force – and briefly detained one of husband Spencer Pratt's employees – the misunderstanding was cleared up. We know you were worried.
"We're grateful this was only a false alarm and I just had my pink Hermes scarf over me," Montag said. "A neighbor was concerned and notified the police."
We're thankful to the LAPD for making sure we were safe."
Amazingly, this did not appear to be staged, a la Tila Tequila's relationship with Casey Johnson. Even Speidi has some standards, people. Not a lot, but some.
