The season premiere of NBC’s I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! provided plenty of fireworks –and tears — Monday night.
The show, which features 11 competitors (The Hills Spencer and Heidi Pratt, ex-WWE diva Torrie Wilson, reality TV staple Stephen Baldwin, former Illinois first lady Patti Blagojevich, La Bamba’s Lou Diamon Phillips, comedy team Frances Callier and Angela V. Shelton, ex-American Idol sideshow Sanjaya Malakar, eccentric ex-supermodel Janice Dickinson and ex-NBA player/ TV personality John Salley) takes place in the jungle of Costa Rica.
The most conspicuous presences, not surprisingly, were that of the newlywed Pratts. After Wilson, Callier and Shelton had apparently boosted Heidi’s shampoo, Spencer went ballistic and argued with the women.
Heidi, seemingly traumatized by the rawness of the Costa Rican Jungle (as opposed to the luxury of Southern California) said in a teary confessional segment that she was very upset by the events, circumstances and her co-stars.
“This is not a very nice show,” she said.
