While filming 'I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!' Heidi Pratt was hospitalized following a three-day stint in which she and husband Spencer Pratt were locked in a dark room filled with rats, snakes and insects for three days.
The extreme reality series features a number of B-list stars, including Sanjaya Malakar of 'American Idol' and two Baldwins. The Pratts were locked in the room because they wanted to leave the show but had a change of heart and begged to stay. Sister-in-law Stephanie broke the news that Heidi Pratt was hospitalized via her Twitter feed.
