Two weeks ago, PEOPLE reported that The Hills star Heidi Montag had eloped with Spencer Pratt and her father was not happy about the situation. Now Heidi’s mother is speaking out to US magazineabout the marriage and the heartache the situation is causing her.
Darlene Egelhoff told US that, “[Spencer]‘s manipulative and seems to have power over Heidi.”
Egelhoff is making some strong accusations against Pratt as well and is claiming that her daughter may have eloped under duress. She stated, “I would like to see a blood test from Mexico. It wouldn’t surprise me if [Spencer] had her drugged.”
Egelhoff is in despair over the growing distance between herself and herdaughter and feels that their broken relationship is due to Pratt’s presence and the fact thatMontag doesn’t like her mother’s honesty. “Spencer has tried to cut everyone out of her life,” she told US. “I’ve been honest with Heidi, and it’s caused our relationship to decline. I’m more devastated about that than the marriage, because I’m confident the marriage won’t work out.”
Montag’s mother continued, “Marrying Spencer, was the biggest mistake Heidi’s ever made.”She gives the couple six months before their marriage falls apart.
Montag had something to say about her mother’s feelings and commented that her mother should be happy for her instead of putting down her marriage to Pratt. She also spoke to US and said, “She should be happy I found someone I love. Some people go their entire lives without finding that.”
Of course Pratt had to jump on the bandwagon when it came time to make a comment about Egelhoff. The two have argued on the reality TV series, The Hills in the past. Pratt snarkily replied, “I think her mom needs to take a real fat chill pill and be happy for her daughter.”
It will be interesting to see how this relationship plays out in the coming months when The Hills goes back into production for season 5. This may actually be the best season yet and even a ploy by Montag and Pratt to up their ratings!
Will Pratt be carried off the show in a body bag….hmmmm, you never know, especially after the final comment Egelhoff made to US, “God says love your enemies,” she said. “But I never expected it to be my son-in-law.”
