Heidi and Spencer get “attacked” by Al Roker; Janice Dickinson back after vomiting

Janice Dickinson returned to the set of NBC’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here 2 after getting medical attention for a viral infection that left her nauseous and vomiting, which is how some viewers feel when watching her, and apparently how Heidi Pratt felt after Al Roker interviewed her on The Today Show.

First, Janice “was rushed by ambulance to the on-set medical facility this weekend after suffering from some sort of illness,” Zap2it.com’s Korbi Ghosh reported this weekend, citing a production source. Her diagnosis and return were revealed on Monday night’s episode.

Meanwhile, Al Roker interviewed eliminated now-departed and always delusional contestants Heidi and Spencer on The Today Show, and he is now a national hero. Apparently not being used to people actually challenging their idiocy. Afterwords, the couple talked to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, and according to E! News, Heidi said, “To be honest, I would never be interviewed by that man again…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.” Spencer said, “I’m still trying to figure out: Was the weatherman asking us questions? I thought we were getting interviewed by Matt Lauer or something.”

Ugh, such non-self aware idiots. Watch new national hero and weatherman Al Roker attack them:
