Heidi Montag Puts the Kibosh on Sex Tape Sale

TMZ reports that Heidi Montag has decided not to go forward with the sale of a rumored sex tape featuring herself getting busy with Playboy Playmate Karissa Shannon—and her svengali-like ex-husband Spencer Pratt, who was brokering the sale of the tape, will no longer be pressing the issue. Is this news cause for lament or celebration?

Rumors swirled late last week that Montag was close to making a deal regarding the tape’s release, with Steve Hirsch, founder of Vivid Entertainment—which was said to be interested in distributing it—planning a trip to Costa Rica in order to hammer out the terms. (Montag and Pratt have recently been holing up in the Central American country.)

Alas, it appears that Montag has developed cold feet over the deal, per a letter that Pratt’s rep shot to Hirsch, which reads in part,

“Heidi’s made it very clear that she is not interested in releasing any tapes…It looks like she pulled the kill switch.”

And while Pratt had reportedly threatened to sell the tape against her wishes in the past, the letter adds,

“Spencer’s not interested in further destroying their relationship by pursuing an avenue she’s so vehemently against.”

And so ends the speculation about whether we’ll be seeing the radically reconstructed former Hills enchantress getting freaky with another chick on tape anytime soon. Speculation about whether such a tape actually ever existed, however, will no doubt continue to rage on.

Disappointed? Don’t despair; head on over the The Adventures of Speidi to see what else these reality TV headline-grabbers are cooking up.
