Heidi Montag and Cougar Zank had an affair, at least according to Montag and Zank. In an odd story, Heidi Montag and Cougar Zank had an affair, and are now trying to sell the story. Radar Online is reporting today that they even received a phone call from Zank stating that Spencer Pratt was "on board and wanted to do it."
For a bit of background on this story, Zank used to be the best friend of Spencer Pratt, whom Montag recently filed for separation from in a very public way. Now, it looks like Montag and Zank set the whole thing up to not only create additional drama between the estranged pair, but to make money off of the alleged affair. This is quickly becoming one of the oddest attention-getting moves in reality television in quite some time.
It is really starting to seem like Heidi Montag can't survive for more than a week without having the celebrity spotlight shining on her. She has a new reality show in the works with pal Jennifer Bunney, she intentionally made sure that camera crews were on-hand when she filed for separation from husband Spencer Pratt recently, and now she is wrapped up in another story that the tabloids are going to have a field day with. Nobody should be surprised that Cougar Zank claims to have video footage of him and Montag dating over the past three weeks, and their intentions became quite obvious with the revelation that the footage includes them picnicking together. This "scandal" seems about as pre-meditated as they come.
So, how much are Montag and Zank looking for in this latest created drama? Radar Online stated that they are shopping video footage to media outlets for up to $30,000, and that the footage will confirm details about their relationship. So, why did they choose Zank (his real name is Paul Robert Korzenko) to do this? Maybe it is because he has had multiple DUI charges, battery against a spouse charges, and even drug charges that were all eventually dismissed or dropped.
It seems he is one of those self-made bad-boys, and maybe Montag (and surely her team of handlers as well) thought that this would be the perfect guy with whom to stage a "controversy."
This whole drama that Heidi Montag has created for herself seems like a very vain attempt to get attention that might just backfire. Those who were hoping they had seen the last of Montag and Pratt when they "separated" are going to be quite frustrated that Montag has thrust herself back into the spotlight.
