Malkin is also not sure who or what to believe. He spoke to Stephanie Pratt Sunday after she posted a message on her Twitter account saying her sister was "rushed to the hospital and has an IV in her arm after being locked in a dark room for 3 days w no food or water. Pls pray she will be ok."
Stephanie Pratt also accused NBC of taking the show "too far." "Im really saddened to hear that nbc felt it was ok to punish speidi so harshly-and torture them as if they were criminals," she wrote on Twitter.
Malkin said Stephanie was "dead serious" when she told E! Online that her sister "was throwing up 30 times with nothing in her stomach. She was really sick. She thought she was dying ... It's insane!"
But Malkin also spoke to a source from the show who contradicted Stephanie Pratt's account. The source told Malkin that the Pratts were in the isolation chamber for about 14 hours, were given food rations and slept and prayed the time away. The insider said not only was Heidi not vomiting, but they were "in happy spirits when they came out of the chamber."
Regardless of the latest twist in the Speidi experience, Levine believes we will look back at Heidi and Spencer 50 years from now and wonder what the big deal was.
"They are a goofy pair in a goofy age," he said. "It's easy to condemn them. But the audience is also ridiculous for partnering in their absurdity."
