Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag: Partners in Crime Once Again?

Nothing brings a pair of estranged attention hounds together faster than a flagrant disregard for the law and a shared love of firearms.

Hills charmers/former married couple Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag were briefly detained at a Costa Rica airport for possession of weapons over the weekend, and Pratt figures that the 12-hour incarceration is just the thing to heal their shattered marriage, which fell apart when Montag filed divorce papers earlier this year.

Pratt told the Associated Press on Monday,

“It was clear we’re soulmates. I don’t see any reason we can’t get back on track.”

Delusional thoughts from a man who’s prone to such flights of fancy? Surprisingly, no; Montag also says that the experience brought them closer together, perhaps to the point of reconciliation:

“As far as I’m concerned the last thing in the world after everything we have just been through is to go through with this divorce. But we are just taking life second by second.”

The pair were held by airport security when officers discovered two unloaded handguns, which authorities say they lack the permits for, in the couple’s luggage. Pratt claims that he brought the 9MM and 45MM weapons, along with ammunition, along for protection. Pratt and Montag were traveling back to Los Angeles via private jet—a formidable expense, given Pratt’s recent claims of poverty.

Do you think Pratt and Montag will get back together? Should they? Were they ever really apart, or has all this been an elaborate ploy for publicity? Share your thoughts in the comment section. And make sure to visit The Adventures of Speidi for frequent updates on the always intriguing pair.
