Heidi Montag: “Al Roker Attacked Me!”

By: Celebuzz / June 15, 2009

For someone who’s done her own fair share of sniping, Heidi Montag certainly seems to have a pretty thin skin.

Hills villain Montag and her hubby Spencer Pratt appeared on Today on Monday morning to talk about their aborted stint on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!

Unfortunately, Montag was forced to endure the slings and arrows of their cruel interviewer, Al Roker.

Throughout the interview, Roker called the couple’s sincerity and character into question, asking whether Spencer’s baptism by I’m a Celebrity co-star Stephen Baldwin was “a ploy” and noting, “There are those who say that you two are everything that’s wrong with celebrity these days.”

When Pratt conceded that he willfully chose the villain role on I’m a Celebrity, Roker replied, “You say ‘villain,’ other people say ‘jerk.'”

And then Roker turned his venomous tongue on Montag, asking, “Heidi, are you proud of all this? Of the way you guys behaved on the program?” Check out the video below:

Apparently, this grueling exercise in journalistic inquiry was all too much for Montag, who groused on Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show about the ordeal.

“I was shocked at how rude he was—I was crying afterwards because I couldn’t believe I felt personally attacked,” said Montag. “I wanted to say to him, do you feel proud of how you’re talking to me right now? I’m just a young woman and you’re coming at me so aggressively and meanly and mean-spirited.”

Added Montag, “I really would advise women especially to be careful around him because I feel like he definitely came and attacked me and I did not appreciate that at all.”

Wow. Strong words, there.
