Good news: Heidi Pratt is definitely, hopefully, maybe out of I’m a Celebrity 2. Bad news: She’s being replaced by her sister, Holly Montag, Access Hollywood reports, although it says she “will not be appearing on Monday night’s episode, but will be appearing shortly.” (There’s no episode Tuesday but a two-hour ep both tonight and Wednesday.) Does this mean Spencer’s sister Stephanie Pratt isn’t far behind? And that the NBC show has pretty much discarded any attempt at fairness to the other contestants who’ve actually been in the jungle for one-quarter of its run?
