The hottest reality TV non-star couple that wasn't is officially not. If that makes any sense. In other words, Holly Montag and Sanjaya Malakar are just friends.

Despite becoming close on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, Holly Montag insists there is no jungle fever with American Idol punch line Sanjaya Malakar.

"We are not dating but just very close," the sister of Heidi Montag said at the Sports Dream Celebrity Poker pool party in Beverly Hills over the weekend.

Although they aren't a couple, a source told Us Weekly the two had plans to go to Hawaii together and drove from L.A. to Seattle to meet his parents.

What does the 25-year-old Montag make of the romance rumors?

"It was funny," Holly said. "I was shocked because we were such close friends, and I had no idea that anyone else thought there was anything romantic going on. People in camp joked about it, but we knew it was a joke so it was funny to us."

"We will continue our friendship forever," she says.

If they do decide to take their relationship to the next level, however, they can rest assured that Spencer Pratt will give them his blessing.

I will very happily hand the famed cup of superstar couple on planet Earth to Sanjaya and Holly in a second," he said recently. "Go for it!"

This story seems far-fetched, but we must remember, Sanjaya Malakar is a sexy beast. The man exudes hotness. He is the personification of raw lust.

How could Holly Montag possibly resist?

Holly, who starred on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here after her sister Heidi Montag and her husband Spencer Pratt infamously bailed, reportedly began a romance with fellow contestant Sanjaya Malakar during her stint in Costa Rica.

What's more, The Hills "star" and the former American Idol "star" are keeping the romance alive after leaving the show! They're going on a vacation!

"Holly and Sanjaya are headed to [the Hawaiian island of] Kauai tomorrow morning so she can meet his parents," an insider tells Life & Style Weekly.

"It's getting serious!"

We can only hope this lasts, if only so Speidi can try to make Holly and Sanjaya's wedding all about them. And so Sanjaya can sing at the reception.

After the tumultuous last week that saw her sister quit, return, be locked in the "lost chamber," hospitalized and quit again, Holly Montag made her debut on NBC's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here on Wednesday night.

"I'm Holly Montag, you might know me from a little show called The Hills," Heidi's sister said upon arriving last night and leaving the cast wanting answers.

The group froze and was instantly suspicious, but seemed to come around as they saw Holly for what she is - a far less interesting version of Heidi Montag.

Heck, Celebrity is pushing it harder regarding Holly than it is with the Baldwin brothers. Although Janice Dickinson quickly took Holly under her ancient wing.

Speidi has departed Costa Rica for good, leaving Holly Montag to take over for the gruesome twosome. No offense, Holly, but please, do something for once.

Holly did make an impression early in her tenure on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here, however, helping the women's team win a crucial food challenge.

Stephen Baldwin referred to Holly as "the sister-in-law of the thing that was," which is one of the better ways we've heard someone describe Spencer Pratt.

"Holly appears to be less high maintenance then Heidi," brother Daniel said. "Thank Jesus Christ almighty she hasn't pulled out a spray bottle of shampoo!"

Check out a video of Holly's moments in the jungle below ...

It's official. Heidi and Spencer Pratt have left the island. And unlike the Oceanic Six (Lost spoiler alert!), in the case of Speidi it looks like it's for good.

After multiple attempts to quit, allegations of torture by NBC and a trip to the hospital, the gruesome twosome finally bailed on I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here - even though they were welcomed back into the competition Monday night.

The Hills stars were pretty much unanimously allowed back into the fold on the program after emerging from a night in the "Lost Chamber."

"No surrender, no retreat," Spencer Pratt could be heard screaming. "The only way we got through was praying, and Jesus delivered us."

But Speidi's alleged resurrection didn't win over everybody.

"I don't believe them for a second," newcomer Daniel Baldwin opined on Spencer and Heidi. "This is the wolf in sheep's clothing."

Even Daniel's brother Stephen Baldwin, a born-again Christian himself, thought Spencer was exhibiting a "spiritual hemorrhoid" in his zeal.

Heidi was hospitalized Saturday after a night in the shack, setting off a war of words between Spencer (who may sue), NBC (which will sue back), Stephanie Pratt (who says Heidi was tortured) and Speidi's publicist (who says no torture occurred).

From what we've gathered, it turns out Heidi came down with intense stomach pain and started vomiting, she hadn't eaten since the night before and, according to her fellow contestants, she wasn't drinking enough water, either.

"I threw up at least 10, 15 times last night," said the ailing Heidi Montag, who was hospitalized in Costa Rica and treated before being released.

Spencer added: "If Heidi is sick, then I'm sick because we are of one flesh."

Later in the episode, camp leader Lou Diamond Phillips informed his fellow celebrities (term used loosely) that Speidi would not be returning.

"They are no longer a part of this competition," he said. "They are gone."

Calling it the "best decision of their lives," Spencer Pratt confirmed they are leaving for good, and that it was the "best decision" of their lives.

"We gave it our all in the competition," he said.

"Now, it's about our health. At the end of the day, we went back in and proved it wasn't about us. This was a life-changing experience."

But not to fear, Speidi followers. NBC - surprise - had anticipated such an event. Heidi's sister, Holly Montag, is now coming aboard this week!

The hour-long finale of The Hills began with Lauren Conrad and Lo Bosworth packing up their house. Guess now that Lauren is retiring from The Hills, she has to move out of the $2.2 million house MTV was paying for. Just kidding. Maybe.

The roommates decide to throw a final party for their closest friends.

Furry Friend

What a perfect opportunity to stage awkward conversations about Spencer and Heidi's wedding and tie up plot points bring the whole gang together for a fun time.

Encouraged by Frankie Delgado to attend the upcoming Speidi wedding, LC responded with, "I'll be at the next one." Ohhhhh, snap, Spencer. No way she's going now, right? Well, don't be so sure. Because we already know she is.

After all, Spencer Pratt is a changed man if you haven't noticed. He even convinced Heidi Montag's mom, Darlene, to give him her blessing. Impressive.

Brody Jenner, however, was not buying Spencer's "nice guy" persona.

"You have lost your mind," Brody laughed during a guys' lunch with his childhood BFF, who admitted going to marriage counseling. "I have a beautiful relationship with a beautiful girl. We have a great time - we don't need to go to therapy!"

Notwithstanding cheating on Jayde Nicole with Audrina Patridge, sparking Audzo's feud with Jayde that has dominated much of this spring, of course.

Meanwhile, Heidi was in full wedding-planning mode. Too bad her maid of honor was the most inept, unstable and worthless maid of honor in history.

Amazingly, we are not talking about Stephanie Pratt!

Heidi's big sister Holly Montag had the big title and managed to mess it up at every turn. She didn't write down the gifts Heidi got at her shower, gave a comically bad speech at the rehearsal dinner, and had an epic, drunken meltdown later.

Absolutely amazing showing, Holly.

Once the big day arrived, all anyone could talk about was whether LC would show up. And she did. A little awkwardly. Their exchange went as follows:

Lauren Conrad:  "You're getting married!"
Heidi Montag: "It's crazy! And you're here!"
Lauren Conrad: "I'm supposed to be."

Read: Because the producers made her. Knowing she's not returning to The Hills after this particular event, she can't even hide her disdain and fake it.

The guests at the wedding included Justin-Bobby, who clearly did not bother to shower, along with Perez Hilton, Spencer's Nana and Heidi's dad, Bill.

Oh, and lightning rod Kristin Cavallari, who shockingly returned to the MTV payroll witness the nuptials of the couple she helped set up many years ago.

As Lauren Conrad realized that she had been replaced, by Kristin Cavallari, on her own show, and reacted with what appeared to be legitimate disgust, her former rival successfully recaptured the spotlight in a matter of minutes.

She flirted with Justin-Bobby for reasons unknown, rubbed in Audrina's face that she flirted with him for obvious reasons (no wonder Audrina hates her already), flashed do-me eyes at Brody, glared at LC and caught Heidi's bouquet.

Oh, and Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag officially tied the knot. Hooray, we guess.

Excuse Lauren Conrad if she can't stand up straight these days. The newly retired reality star is still pulling that knife out of her back.

In an interview with E! News, Holly Montag showed serious love for new co-star Kristin Cavallari.

"I think Kristin's openness is going to be far more entertaining than anything Lauren had to offer," Holly said. "Lauren's always been very conservative, which is good for her values, but Kristin just wants to put everything on the line because she thinks reality is real. Kristin doesn't hide anything. She's seriously the most real girl you'll meet in reality television."

Isn't that like being the tallest person at a midget convention?

The Fabulous Lauren Conrad

Holly Montag admires Kristin Cavallari for being "real." We admire Montag if she was able to keep a straight face while making that statement.

Despite implying that LC is fake, Holly wishes nothing but the best for her pal:

"I'm happy she's done with this. Now, that she's out if it, I have no doubt she'll be a successful designer. She's so talented and driven."

Meanwhile, Stacie Hall - the bartender that's dating Frankie Delgado - has already partied with Kristin.

"Kristin's a really fun, outgoing person, and I think we're going to have a great time continuing to film," Stacie said. "Lauren is a good, good girl, but Kristin is more outgoing and crazy."

The Hills' Holly Montag, the less-plastic sibling of Heidi Montag, wants to set the record straight about the big ring she's been wearing on her finger.

"It's not true, and I am not engaged," she says. Phew.

Star Magazine reports that Holly Montag recently received a "gold promise ring" from her club promoter boyfriend, Ben Henry.

In reference to the paid, a source told the celeb gossip magazine that "they aren't engaged yet, but it's as good as done."

Holly Montag has been seen with the ring, but it's not from Ben Henry, she says.

"It's my grandfather's wedding ring," she says. I wear it all the time on that finger."

Well, there you have that.

Speaking of non-engagements, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt "eloped" in November.

Lauren Conrad leaves with a friend - who we believe is Holly Montag - after attending the Southern Hospitality Restaurant Holiday Party at hot Club Butter.

Also in attendance were Wilmer Valderrama, Trace Ayala and Brody Jenner's one true love, Frankie Delgado. Here's LC and her pal making their getaway ...

Even when dressed for cooler climates, Lauren Conrad is stylish as ever.

After The Hills' Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt eloped in Mexico without friends or family present, Heidi's mom Darlene was, well, far from thrilled.

She called Pratt out for being the conniving weasel he is, and even went so far as to suggest Spencer drugged Heidi, which is absurd even for him.

Heidi's sister Holly defends her mother's reaction, however.

"She had a lot of raw feelings and she just kind of let loose about them," Holly Montag told Hollyscoop. "I think she's kind of remorseful about what she said in retrospect. We all understand and everybody understands."

So what does Holly herself think about missing Spencer and Heidi's wedding ceremony, which MTV filmed for an upcoming episode of The Hills?

A little hurt herself, Holly Montag is defending "her mom's fury."

"I was initially a little hurt not being able to be a part of it. But it's her choice and it's a special thing between those two," she said. "I support anything Heidi wants to do. I just want her to be happy and she seems sublimely happy."

Could the rising tension between Spencer and Darlene have played a role in prompting the elopement? According to Holly Montag, it's certainly a possibility.

"I think the wedding was a spur of the moment thing and wasn’t premeditated so that could have something to do with it, not wanting the drama," she said.

Since the Speidi wedding, however romantic, wasn't legal, Holly hopes she'll be invited to the official ceremony... if Spencer and Heidi have one, of course.

Best. Episode. Ever. The Hills was in rare form last night, and our recap, as always, will consist of our staff awarding and deducting points as it sees fit.

Holly Montag is still, like, totally sad about the way things went down with Heidi. Spencer is still a jerk. Meanwhile, Audrina thinks Lauren hooked up with Justin-Bobby - and both J-Bobby and LC are far from pleased about her accusations.

On to the rankings! Chime in with your own!

Audrina tells Chiara that Dino (Dina?) told her about the Lauren-Justin hookup. Minus 2 because Audzo has no friends with normal names, and Minus 3 more for the "detail" of the hookup she refers to not being explained. Peeps wanna know!

Would anyone be surprised if Lo Bosworth started the rumor? That would be classic, diabolical Lo. But she sort of said nothing throughout. Minus 1.

Spencer Pratt calls Holly Montag "Little Miss Traitor." Plus 4, because he probably could think up a much better nickname/insult, but we all know he's lazy.

Heidi has been relegated to a cubicle at work, rather than the posh office she used to have. After her fake firing, of course. Plus 7 for the general ridiculousness of this, and Plus 2 more for Spencer smirking about it when she complains.

We rant about the lag between real time events and The Hills so much it's passe, but this episode aired a few hours after we learned about Heidi and Spencer eloping. They're married! It's hard to take minor fight #378 as seriously now. Minus 2.

It's hard to tell what bugs Lauren Conrad more - being the subject of a false rumor, or that said rumor involved her and a revolting human being. As IF! Plus 4.

Audrina Patridge leaves a rambling, pathetic, borderline-stalker voicemail for Justin. Minus 4 for her being such a loser. Somehow, Justin-Bobby was the more collected, mature individual at the bar later. Didn't see that coming. Plus 7.

Anybody else missing Brody Jenner? Just asking. Minus 2.

The editing of the Audrina-Lauren drama was a bit off. LC is never shown denying the hookup, yet we learn later that both she and J-Bob did so initially. It's like we're being manipulated and this "reality" show isn't 100 percent real. Minus 3.

Minus 3 for the staged Stephanie Pratt scene in which she's clearly being fed lines. But Plus 6 for the similar Casey Patridge scene, because she tells it like it is.

Finally, it comes out: Lauren Conrad said she'd "rather die" than hook up with Justin-Bobby, who's "disgusting." She said this to Audrina's face. Wow. Plus 14 for the utter harshness, honesty, buildup and inevitability of that statement. And Plus 3 more for "You're way worse than Heidi." Talk about adding insult to injury!

TOTAL: +27. Vintage Hills. Bravo, all. Leave a comment with your own scores!
