"I needed some alone time," says Montag of reports that she moved out of the Pacific Palisades, Calif., home she shared with Spencer, to People magazine.
"I just needed space – even from my husband. I had to get away from the lies my family and supposed friends are saying about me," adds Heidi Montag.
"It's time to concentrate on myself."

The reality star says she plans on spending the summer clearing her head and getting in some much need girl time with pal and new roommate Jen Bunney.
Their summer of self-love will be captured by reality TV cameras, natch.
