Heidi & Spencer -- Busted in Costa Rica!

8/23/2010 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are getting divorced and Spencer is threatening to release a flurry of sex tapes that  feature his handiwork with Heidi, along with some girl-on-girl ... so it's more than telling that a paparazzi agency shot video of the two of them together Sunday at a resort in Costa Rica, frantically separating so they would not seem in cahoots.

Spencer Pratt Sextape - Costa Rica
Spencer told TMZ over the weekend he was in Costa Rica to turn over two dogs to Heidi but she wanted nothing to do with him.  The video suggests otherwise.

Spencer says he's given Heidi an ultimatum -- either tear up the divorce papers and do a reality show with him, or he'll release the sex tapes. 

So we ask ...



UPDATE: Heidi and Spencer were also spotted together in Costa Rica on August 18. The plot thickens ...

As we previously reported, Karissa doesn't deny that a tape exists ... but she's not convinced that Spencer Pratt is actually in possession of it.

Spencer Sex Tape

Better Than Girl-On-Girl

8/23/2010 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Heidi Montag sex tape saga has exposed a glaring hypocrisy in the world of celebrity sex tapes -- straight sex trumps beautiful, innocent, glorious girl-on-girl action.

0822_Heidi_Montag_Shannon_Twins_getty_TMZ_ex
Sources close to the Heidi sex tape deal tell TMZ ... Vivid Entertainment is only slightly interested in the rumored video with Montag and the Shannon Playmates. They are, we're told, way more interested in the Speidi videos.

We're told Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch is very clear ... the money tape is the one featuring Heidi and Spencer Pratt -- a tape he believes could surpass Kim Kardashian's sex tape in sales.

To sum it up ... video of Spencer Pratt is somehow more appealing than video of naked Playboy Playmate twin sisters. What is this world coming to?!?!?!?

UPDATE: Kristina Shannon tells TMZ she is "100% positive" that she is not in any sort of sex tape  with either her twin sister Karissa Shannon or Heidi Montag.

Kristina adds, "I'm saddened by the situation with Heidi and my sister."

Snooki's Ex -- I Should Have Made a Sex Tape!

8/22/2010 2:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Spencer Pratt's guido protégé Emilio isn't quite on his level yet ... because he didn't shoot a sex tape with Snooki like Spencer did with Heidi -- but he wishes he had!

0822_Spencer_Pratt_Emilio_Masella_TMZ_youtube_ex
Emilio shot a dating show pilot for Spencer's production company called "Fist Pumping 4 Love." He tells us he thinks the Speidi sex tape is "an amazing idea" and he envies Spencer for it.

But rest easy -- there is no sex tape with Emilio and ex-GF Snooki. Emilio says, "Wish I did that with Snooki. But I'm still learning and wasn't as smart as him."

It's probably a good thing -- the world isn't ready for a Snooki sex tape.

Heidi & Karissa

Girl-on-Girl Sex Tape

8/22/2010 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Spencer Pratt has unearthed a girl-on-girl tape featuring Heidi Montag and Playboy Playmate Karissa Shannon ... sources tell TMZ.

0821_heidi_shannon_TMZ_EX2
We're told not too long ago Spencer was at the Malibu house he once shared with Heidi ... moving out some of his stuff.  Sources tell us Spencer came upon a camera with XXX video of Heidi and Karissa -- and the light bulb went off.

Sources say it was then that Spencer decided he could make a fortune selling his "library" to Vivid Entertainment -- much of it featuring naked, fornicating Speidi.

We could not reach Heidi and her reps were mum.

As for Karissa Shannon -- she tells us such a tape does indeed exist, but she's not convinced Spencer really has it. Karissa says if the tape ever sees the light of day, she'll sue the pants off him.

Then again, he might enjoy that.

Vivid Prez: It's in Heidi's Hands Now

8/22/2010 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If the Heidi Montag sex tape is to become the "Titanic" of sex tapes, it'll be because Heidi made it so ... this according to the head of Vivid Entertainment.

0822_steven_hirsch_video
We caught up with Steve Hirsch outside Boa last night -- where he was definitely excited to be negotiating for the Heidi sex tape.

Hirsch says if the sex tape is going to be the biggest selling sex tape ever -- and raise Heidi's profile to Kim Kardashian levels -- it'll depend on what Heidi does after the tape is released.

If Spencer has his way, the only thing Heidi will be doing ... is another reality show.


Spencer --

I Always Wanted

to Be a Porn Star

8/21/2010 6:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Before there was a Speidi, before there was "The Hills," young Spencer Pratt had just one dream ... to be a porn star.

0821_spencer_pratt_GETTY_EX
Turns out this sex tape madness has been a career ambition of Spencer's for some time. He tells us he has wanted to be a porn star since the reality show "Princes of Malibu" ended ... way back in 2005.

Spencer tells TMZ he feels Heidi wants to divorce him because she thinks he's bad for her image. But, as we first reported, Spencer has eyes on doing another reality show with Heidi, saying, "We're reality stars, not serious actors. She can’t think she’s Naomi Watts. She’s a tad delusional."  

Pot, kettle.

Spencer --

The Heidi Sex Tape

Asking Price Is ...

8/21/2010 2:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources tell TMZ ... Spencer Pratt has a price in mind for the Heidi Montag sex tape -- $5,000,000!!!

0821_spencer_pratt_heidi_montag_TMZ_EX2
As we first reported, Spencer is shopping the tape to porn powerhouse Steve Hirsch at Vivid Entertainment. Sources close to the deal tell TMZ they have heard Spencer's asking price and that Vivid doesn't think the figure is "an unreasonable price."

For his part, Spencer tells TMZ that he has an "entire website's" worth of footage, saying, "I will knock Club Jenna out of the water."

Spencer went on to say he thinks releasing the tapes will be good for Heidi, saying, "When I realized how much Kim [Kardashian] was making, my logic is this is the best thing I can do for my ex-wife. Kim is on the cover of Allure right now. Heidi isn’t on the cover of Allure."

Fair point.

Heidi Montag Sex Tape

Pre and Post-Op

8/21/2010 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... whether you prefer your Heidi Montag enhanced or au naturel, there's something for everyone if the Heidi sex tape ever hits the market. 

0820_heidi_montag_getty_2
Sources close to the deal tell TMZ that the proposed Heidi sex tape would include footage from both before "The Hills" star had extensive work done and after. So in some of the footage she probably makes a lot of different facial expressions and in the rest ... not so much.

As we first reported ... Heidi's soon-to-be ex, Spencer Pratt, is shopping around a Heidi sex tape to Vivid Entertainment that supposedly "makes Kim Kardashian look like an amateur."

Starring Heidi Montag

8/20/2010 9:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Spencer Pratt is currently shopping what he claims is a sex tape featuring himself and his soon-to-be ex-wife Heidi Montag.

Spencer
We're told Spencer has contacted the Rolls-Royce of porn -- Vivid Entertainment -- and is asking for a meeting.

As we first reported, Heidi has threatened to sue Spencer over a tell-all book -- but she has not made any mention of a sex tape.  Unclear if the alleged sex tape with Heidi is pre or post-op.

Vivid honcho Steven Hirsch tells us, "I just got off the phone with Spencer Pratt about a sex tape with Heidi Montag."

He continues, "We are in early negotiations to possibly come to terms for a deal."

Spencer has told a friend that the alleged tape "makes Kim Kardashian look like an amateur."

Heidi Threatens Legal Action

8/19/2010 3:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Heidi Montag is downright furious with Spencer Pratt's new claim that he plans to write a tell-all book about her private life -- and is now threatening legal action to stop him.

0819_heidi_spencer_writing_ex_3
We just spoke to Montag who tells us, "This is exactly why I left him ... Right now I'm looking into my legal options."

Spencer had told Us Weekly that he plans on spilling everything about his relationship with Heidi Montag -- including new details about her tormented relationship with her mother, Darlene Egelhoff.

As we previously reported, Montag filed for divorce back in July -- and plans on making their split official on Valentine's Day.

Heidi to Spencer:

Happy Valentine's Day, Sucker

8/18/2010 4:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nothing says "I don't love you anymore" like getting a divorce on Valentine's Day ... just ask Heidi Montag.

Heidi and Spencer Divorce
