Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are causing quite a stir on the UK's Celebrity Big Brother. The gruesome twosome is receiving death threats, apparently.
"The American couple have become the most reviled contestants in the history of the show," one insider says, to the surprise of zero Americans.
The death threats are serious enough that "Big Brother chiefs will ensure they get close protection from minders when they eventually exit the house."
According to UK celeb gossip sources, the dastardly duo know as Speidi "mock other contestants, argue with them and refuse to join in tasks to get rewards."
Sounds about right.
They have also engaged in X-rated action on air - there was a Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag sex scene deemed too hot for TV - making many uncomfortable.
This week, many of the show's fans in Britain took to Twitter to express their grief, using harsh words such as "kill" and "death" in relation to The Hills stars.
Making an already tense situation even worse is a recent photo shoot Speidi did in which they showcase their love for (and collection of) firearms.
Always so classy, and sensitive to others.
It's an interesting turn of events, since less than two weeks ago, the married reality stars were winning over Celebrity Big Brother fans with their conniving ways.
“No one in England had any idea who they were or what they did,” a source told The Huffington Post. “But they are so barmy they have won over the public."
All that is a thing of the past now, as "initially everyone seemed to love their meddling, but now knows their true colors ... it's turned into real hatred."
