They may or may not be celebrities, but when it came to their latest reality TV foray, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag decided they were definitely out of here.

News that Speidi quit the show was a tad surprising.

Not even prime-time self-promotion - four nights a week, for three weeks straight! - could keep the gruesome twosome on the set. They hated it that much.

They will return for the live portion of tonight's I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here, but after that, they will officially be gone from the Costa Rica set.

"They're leaving right after the live portion of the show," an NBC source said. "The fact that they are leaving the show and deserting their charities is lame."

One of the rare moments of silence from Speidi. Ever.

E! News says producers are trying to replace the couple - who even rapped on a music video theme for the show - with another member of The Hills cast.

Conversely, People reports that Daniel Baldwin (whose brother Stephen is on the show already) is filling in for Speidi and playing for the couple's charity.

Finally, a well-placed Costa Rican source who works on the production of the show tells TMZ that just before quitting, Spencer Pratt screamed at producers, "If you give me a script, I'll do what you want. I'm not a reality star. I'm on The Hills."

Hilarious. Follow the jump for two videos of Speidi's meltdown!

Yesterday's make-up has run across Amy Winehouse's face.

She is wearing a bright-pink bra under a cropped Nike top.

You can see scars which indicate that she has been self-harming - cutting herself - again and there are two fresh cigarette burns on her stomach.

Amy, 25, was hailed as the most exciting vocal talent of her generation. She is living in two villas which cost her record company about £2,000 a night.

It's a curious, dissolute life for the troubled singer. Lonely and usually drunk, seems more lost each passing day in her Caribbean paradise of St. Lucia.

A lucky (unlucky?) journalist from the Daily Mail (UK) got to spend time with Amy Winehouse there, and the songbird coughed up some choice quotes.

Covered in what appeared to be self-inflicted cuts and burns, Amy apparently replaced crack and heroin with alcohol. She began drinking at 9 a.m.

“It feels like home here,” she says of the resort she calls home.

Drunk Amy Winehouse

In addition to paying for her villas and the six people that tend to her on a daily basis, Universal has installed a recording studio for Wino, in the hopes that she will sober up long enough to record the follow up album to Back To Black.

It’s cost almost $1 million, and all Amy Winehouse has to show for it thus far is an increasingly high tolerance for hard liquor (and weed, natch).

She was coherent enough to say that she and estranged husband Blake Fielder-Civil - who knocked up Gilleen Morris while in rehab - are still in love.

However, she added, “I couldn’t have given him kids - and anyway I want black kids, not white kids.” Naturally, who doesn't? Makes perfect sense.

She said she was working on her temper, too: "I don't hit people any more. I used to get into confrontations ... now I just like to face things head on."

Well, that's a relief. Why are we imagining her head-butting people? And why do we get the sense that this troubled star is living on borrowed time?

Farewell, giant boobs. For Peter Andre, there's no going back.

Following his split from Katie Price, the model known as Jordan, the singer has bought  £1.8 million, seven-bedroom home in Hove, near Brighton, England, a short drive from the former Price-Andre family home near Woldingham, Surrey.

Peter Andre, 36, admitted he had found the "perfect house" and was waiting until builders made it more child-friendly before officially moving in.

After their shocking split on May 11, Katie Price ordered Peter's personal items removed from the family home while he was staying with family in Cyprus.

In his New magazine column, Peter Andre said there are good reasons behind his decision to leave the gigantic-breasted model, and it wasn't "on a whim."

He wrote in his column: "There are good reasons that made me walk out but as I’ve said to before, I don’t want to discuss the reasons as they are private."

Good reasons = no sex since 2007? Unclear.

"It’s really important to me, though, that people know I didn’t just wake up one day and decide to leave on a whim," he added. "My two children have always been the most important thing in my life and they always will be.'

Andre also lashed out at reports he had posed for photos with son Junior, three, and daughter Princess Tiaamii, 23 months, in Hove last week for publicity.

After the photos of Peter and the children emerged online, Katie Price wrote on her Twitter micro-blogging page: 'Mmmmm, I smell set up pictures.'

However, Peter said: "The thought of profiting in any way from this terrible situation is totally beyond anything I would consider doing. Unfortunately, I am being followed by paparazzi constantly, and I’d have to stay in the house to avoid this."

Katie Price was rumored to have offered to reconcile with Andre after their split, only to be brushed aside after what some call years of bullying him around.

We can't wait to see what comes next from these train wrecks.

Rihanna wore a hot Alexander Wang corset dress while out in New York City recently. No word if it ever ended up on Chris Brown's floor while they got it on.

Also recently, Paris Hilton wore the same dress to David Letterman's show.

No, not the same physical dress. Gosh, that would be gross for Rihanna if she were the second one to wear it. But they rocked the same style and designer.

Both girls showed off their legs in the short dress, although Rihanna wore sky-high hair and a sparkly silver purse, while Paris kept her blond tresses simple.

You've gotta give them both credit - they're both far more covered up than in many of the Rihanna and Paris Hilton pictures we've seen in recent weeks.

But who looked better? Sound off below!

Ri-Paris

Who wore it better?

Despite his amazingly terrible, yet ingenious music video hyping the show, and himself, Spencer Pratt has reportedly quit I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.

A source close to production says that Spencer and wife Heidi Montag walked off the show's set for good after the live portion of last night's season premiere.

It is unclear how the program will handle their leaving.

The Hills stars were among the biggest "celebrities" on the new NBC show (which is based on a UK show of the same name), but Sunday, rumors began surfacing that Speidi's second reality TV stint was becoming a total disaster.

Here's a classic shot that made its way online of Heidi bawling (with no makeup on, and displaying her comically fake lips) on the set of I'm a Celebrity ...

The gruesome twosome apparently didn’t realize that they were going to be dropped in Costa Rican jungle and forced to compete in various audience-picked challenges ... despite the fact that this is the entire premise of the show.

“They wanted to be treated like stars,” an E! source said. “[Spencer] literally thought he and Heidi were staying in a Four Seasons, working out and getting a tan.”

They were also displeased with the caliber of stars on the show, calling the crew - which includes the comedy duo Frangela, former NBA player John Salley and Mesozoic Era supermodel Janice Dickenson - “not famous” and “nobodies.”

An NBC vice president flew down to Costa Rica to personally ask the couple to stay, but apparently to no avail. Oh well. Guess Speidi is just far better suited to making millions from staged reality shows and photo ops on U.S. soil.

After narrowing the field from 20 to 16 in last week's episode, Jillian Harris' third week as The Bachelorette featured the dismissal of three more suitors.

Who's staying? Who's going? The Hollywood Gossip's recap below revisits some highlights, with points awarded and deducted as we see fit. Here goes ...

On the roof during their candlelit dinner, Jillian gloats to Ed that she "popped his helicopter cherry" earlier in the day. We heart Jill, but no. No. Minus 2.

"I don't have any skills ... I'm not here to do $h!t ... I just wanna suck on some toes, and meet me some Jillian." - Tanner P. The foot fetish is either really creepy or just an act, but there's something amusingly self-deprecating about him. Plus 4.

Sasha wins the worst metaphor of the year honor by saying he considers himself a wolf, and that most people stay "in line," while he's "always looking for that mythical unicorn." Minus 5, because not even Jillian bought that cheesiness.

Jillian and Robby get out of the hot tub, leaving the other guys there as she gives him a rose. Plus 4 for this choice, as Robby seems nice, and Plus 5 more for the palpable awkwardness and disappointment of the resulting sausage-fest.

Jillian takes 11 guys to an old West movie set, declaring "You guys are gonna be actors!" Ugh. This is worse than Jason Mesnick's "amazing" trip to the General Hospital set. Minus the ABC programming plugs, of course. Minus 3.

David, The Bachelorette

UNFROZEN CAVEMAN BACHELOR: At least David is honest about not getting the attention he thinks he deserves ... and wanting to tie Juan to a tree and beat him.

Best editing of the night: Juan talks to Jillian. Cut to David saying he'd like to kill Juan. Not an idle threat, either. Dude should definitely drink more. Plus 12.

David's rage issues aside, Juan is kind of a d-bag. Minus 4 for telling Jillian Harris how to say "you are marvelous" in Spanish. Really, Juan? Minus 3 more for ABC's matador-esque Juan theme music. He's from South America, get it?!?!

After David berates Juan, and the guys who will not confront Juan, Ed observes: "Dave's a little unstable right now." Reid's reply: "He looks like he's about to kill someone." Plus 6, because he's even making his perceived allies uncomfortable.

Wes Hayden notes that he has more on the line than the other guys because he's written Jillian a song. This is a great point that totally helps him make the case that he isn't just here to help his music career. Wait, no it doesn't. Minus 10.

Speaking of Wes' song, why does ABC always show him playing the same 10 seconds of it? Plus 3, because this results in some funny, irate rants from certain The Hollywood Gossip staff members, but still. Now he is terrible and repetitive.

Minus 2 for the utter lack of Jake Pavelka this week, but Plus 2 for the return of Chris Harrison's fireside chat with Jillian at the end. Take what you can get.

THIS WEEK'S TOTAL: +8! SEASON: +25!

Rose recipients: Ed and Robby (earlier); Jake, Reid, Mark, Jesse, Tanner P., Wes, Juan, Michael, Kiptyn, Mike, and David (rose ceremony).

Outta here: Sasha (one-on-one date); Tanner F. and Brad (rose ceremony).

Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Lauren Conrad.

Making a grand, staged entrance at Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag's wedding, Kristin Cavallari was introduced as Lauren's replacement on The Hills Sunday.

In mere minutes of screen time, LC's former Laguna Beach rival has already left her mark and positioned herself as the star of the show's upcoming season.

Kristin Cavallari is even billed as such in a new trailer for future Hills episodes, when we will see her befriend Stacie the Bartender (yes, Spencer's girl), flirt with Justin-Bobby of all people, and loudly declare to someone, “You f%&ked with the wrong girl!”

As the promo itself proclaims, "The Bitch is Back" ...

The new issue of Esquire features a new short story by Stephen King, as well as literary contributions by several other prominent authors of our time.

Supposedly, anyway. It's a bit difficult to focus on or care much about that when they put this picture of Bar Refaeli naked on the cover. Call us crazy.

Perhaps she was feeling inspired to top Rolling Stone's cover of Miranda Kerr nude. Or perhaps she just got paid a lot of money. Either way, check it out

Bar Refaeli Nude Pic

Bar Refaeli covers Esquire, covered by nothing but ink.

They're taking the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue approach to magazine sales these days/ Not that we're complaining anytime we see the Israeli beauty.

After all, what better way to make fiction sexy than have the men's magazine's contents scrawled across her naked body, with stories teased on her arms?

Exactly. Click to enlarge more Bar Refaeli photos below ...

Nadya Suleman has a message for fellow mega-mom Kate Gosselin: you need six more kids before you can be mentioned in the same breath as me stop judging me!

In an explosive new interview with Radar Online, a visibly agitated Octomom expressed frustration and rolled her eyes as she watched, for the very first time a tape, of Kate Gosselin's appearance on The Dr. Phil Show last February.

Sexy Nadya Suleman

In the interview, Kate was asked for her impressions of Nadya in the aftermath of her octuplets' birth. Kate proceded to describe her own experience having six kids.

Gosselin spoke at length about determined person she is, how she had such a caring, capable husband (this was pre-Deanna Hummel railing, apparently) helping her with their sextuplets, and that the first year still "almost killed her."

Watching the clip, Octomom was far from enamored with Kate's subtle bashing of her lifestyle, or the Jon and Kate Plus 8 star's noticeably high opinion of herself.

POT, MEET KETTLE: Octomom Nadya Suleman thinks Kate Gosselin is not only an attention whore, but an unstable person who is trying to sponge off of her fame.

"She needs to stop being so judgmental and stop pulling at straws for attention," Nadya Suleman said, adding that Kate is simply "desperate for attention."

"My children are extremely healthy, strong and happy. That's a fact. Don't you have, like, a lot of issues in your life? A lot of marital problems?" she said.

"Why are you so desperate to glob on to my life," Nadya asked of Kate, who has reportedly set a divorce date with hubby John. "For attention? What?"

Sigh. As we concluded in our Octomom and Kate Gosselin Tale of the Tape last week, there are some celebrity feuds in which there is simply no winner.

Britney Spears is off to London for the next leg of her Circus tour, but she spend the last week in California, hanging out with family and rumored love Jason Trawick.

She also filmed the music video for her new song, "Radar," which apparently featured her standing near a riding lawnmower, and did not require her to put on a bra.

A Scary Britney

Hey, as long as she didn't make a mess in wardrobe, it's all good ...

Britney Spears gets ready to film a video. Or cut the grass.

Looks like it was an abnormally cold day on the set. No word on whether the pop star sampled any of her new gay fragrance before heading off for a day's work.
