Exclusive: Source says Heidi & Spencer slept comfortably in isolation, one of the other celebs has quit
The news was reported by Heidi's sister-in-law, Stephanie Pratt, who tweeted that Heidi was rushed to the hospital after being locked in a dark room for three days with no food or water. She said that NBC had gone too far, torturing Heidi and Spencer after they quit and then begged to rejoin the network's summer reality series "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!"
However, I'm hearing from a source close to the production that the so-called "torture" of Speidi never happened. Not only was the "dark room" (see photo below) they inhabited cleared of all the rats, snakes and bugs before they entered, I'm told Spencer and Heidi spent no longer than 14 hours in there and were provided food and water during their stay.
"They quit the show on Monday, stayed in a hotel for three days and then begged to come back," the insider said. "They entered the 'Lost Chamber' on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. and were out of there by 6:30 a.m. on Friday. They were actually in very good spirits when they walked out and you will see that if you watch tomorrow night's episode."
According to the source, Spencer and Heidi pretty much slept comfortably the whole time they were locked up: "There might've been a noise or two made to freak them out and maybe a rogue insect or two that snuck back into the space, but other than that, the two of them were fine."
In fact, it has been pouring rain in the Costan Rican jungle for the past few days, so Heidi and Spencer could consider themselves lucky as they were sheltered from the elements by four walls while the rest of the cast has been left to battle the rain unprotected.
Speaking of the rest of the cast, one of the other remaining celebrities -- not Heidi or Spencer -- has quit the show for good. I'm not sure who it is, but we'll soon find out.
