Even Heidi and Spencer’s own friends think their marriage-and-divorce have more twists and turns than a Hollywood thriller.
In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, the couple’s close pal, Cougar Zank, admitted the split was “a show” and questioned if “reality is real”.
It adds yet more intrigue to the supposed impending divorce, after Montag filed for divorce last month citing irreconcilable differences.
When Heidi and Spencer allegedly separated, she reportedly moved to Malibu with aspiring actor Cougar, who is also a former Marine.
“It’s Hollywood. There’s got to be a show, the show must go on,” Zank told RadarOnline.com when asked him if Speidi’s divorce proceedings were just to keep the couple famous.
“Is reality real?” he questioned.
Spencer and Heidi spoke to each other on Tuesday morning after the news broke about the death of the blonde’s plastic surgeon, Dr. Frank Ryan.
They have been communicating since their split and not just over Twitter, said Zank.
“Twice a week Spencer usually calls,” Zank revealed, adding the phone calls are always friendly.
“They’re still friends, working things out -- they’re young.”
Even though he claims to only live with Heidi, Zank told RadarOnline.com that he is very involved with Spencer’s beach movie Tower 69: Beach Patrol Featuring 3D Boobs, and he did take responsibility for Spencer’s busy 'mountain-man' beard.
“I showed him a Steve McQueen shot and it looked similar,” Zank said.
“Don’t worry,” he told RadarOnline.com, “it’s a phase; of course he’ll shave it someday.”
