Our good friends over at Pop Eater might be on to something! Could all of this drama “separation” and “divorce” drama between Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt just be a big publicity stunt to draw people to check out Heidi’s new reality show?

Get this for a story pitch: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt split up after a year of marriage, but don’t file any legal papers. The ‘Hills’ starlet moves to a beach house for the summer where she films a reality show with her newly minted BFF. During the course of taping this sure-to-be classic show, Pratt returns to the fold and by the time the finale rolls around, wins back Montag’s heart and they return home to Los Angeles. While many of you may be hoping Heidi really did ditch Spencer last week, sources inside and outside the family have a different take on the situation.
