While Heidi Montag's rep has confirmed that The Hills star has split from husband Spencer Pratt, many have speculated that the rift in the couple's year-and-a-half marriage was all a ploy to generate interest in their upcoming reality show. Now, to back up that suspicion, sources have told Us Weekly that the Pratts are sitting back and having a good chuckle at the success of the alleged hoax.
"Heidi and Spencer are laughing over it and having a blast," an insider said of the media blitz surrounding their maybe-fake split. Even Heidi's sister, Holly Montag, tweeted that the couple is a bunch of "liars."
Heidi is set to star in a new reality show with her best friend, former Hills star Jen Bunney, which is going to focus on the plastic surgery maven's struggle with the breakup. But an insider calls their marital woes "the latest part of Spencer's master plan" to keep them in the limelight once The Hills ends after this season.
Bunney even hinted that a reunion could be in the works. "That will be a big aspect of our show: How Spencer handles it," she said.
Still, "there are no plans for divorce," says a source close to the couple, and Heidi's rep confirms no papers have been filed.
