It’s amazing what one little rumor can do.
The sex tape rumor surrounding Lauren Conrad and Jason Wahler — along with did-they-or-didn’t-they-leak-it couple Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag — has helped make “The Hills” the most watched show on MTV.
So, is Montag guilty of spreading a sex tape rumor about Lauren and Jason? Montag’s Web site certainly seemed to hint as much. But things aren’t always what they appear.
Just hours after the headline “Me And Spencer Did Spread The False Rumors About Lauren’s Sex Tape,” appeared on Montag’s blog, Access Hollywood’s Maria Menounos went straight to the source to set the record straight with Montag.
“Someone went through a lot of effort to hack my Web site and Spencer’s, but I have no idea why,” Montag revealed. “We have hired a Web guy to find out who did it and where the source is, so we will get to the bottom of this.”
At the center of the cyberspace scandal is the mystery of who spread rumors earlier this year about an alleged sex tape starring Montag’s “Hills” nemesis, Conrad, and her then-boyfriend, Wahler.
“There was information on there that proved you and Spencer had done this sex tape scandal,” Menounos said.
“I know, it’s so silly,” Montag replied.
Menounos caught up with the girl “Hills” fans love to hate in the unlikeliest of places — inside a Taco Bell. But it wasn’t a fast food craving that brought her there. It was actually a very worthy cause.
Pratt and Montag have teamed up with Taco Bell for the World Hunger Relief Event, an effort to raise awareness of global hunger. The “Hills” couple served up Taco Bell fare to L.A.-area customers during lunch hour, encouraging others to help alleviate world hunger.
“Taco Bell approached us with this hunger reality check and asked us if we could help out,” Pratt said. “We’re honored to be included in the fight against hunger and be a part of the $10,000 donation to World Food Programme.”
Following the fund-raising event, and with the blog brouhaha behind them, it was time for Montag to finally answer the accusations that she and Pratt were behind the sex tape rumors in the first place.
“So everyone wants to know, did you guys do it?” Menounos asked.
Did they? Didn’t they? For Montag’s answer, check out the video.
