NBC's punishment of The Hills Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag's elaborate, week-long scam on I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! was akin to that of a terrorists or war criminals, Pratt's sister, Stephanie, tells RadarOnline.com in an exclusive one-on-one interview.
"Heidi's in the hospital.... hooked up to an IV right now... it's really sad," Stephanie, who also appears on The Hills, told RadarOnline.com at Disney's Heroes Celebrity Carnival Sunday in Los Angeles. Said Stephanie: "My whole family was sick to our stomach last night when we found out Heidi was in the hospital."
Regarding her brother Spencer, she added: "It's really hard to be their sister at times."
Montag's younger sister Holly (who was conveniently staying in Costa Rica) will replace her ailing sister, according to her family.
"I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!" airs weekdays on NBC. Tuesday's episode, this week, is being pre-empted due to hockey playoffs.
