Sanjaya and Holly Montag are not dating

About the only interesting thing to come out of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here was the relationship between Sanjaya Malakar and Holly Montag, sister of the half of the two-headed demon that menaced the show for a while. But despite some apparent flirting on TV, their relationship is just a friendship, Holly says.

“We are not dating but just very close. … I was shocked because we were such close friends, and I had no idea that anyone else thought there was anything romantic going on. People in camp joked about it, but we knew it was a joke so it was funny to us,” Holly told Us Weekly this past weekend. “We will continue our friendship forever. Sanjaya came out to visit me last week!”
