George Hamilton Clinches Spencer Pratt Kinship by Quitting I'm A Celebrity
You can quit reducing comparisons between George Hamilton and Spencer Pratt to an affinity for cranking out dubious headlines and pigment-free facial hair -- the worldwide TV franchise I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here proves the two are PR wonder twins. Just as Pratt quit the American version of the series in early 2009 with wife Heidi Montag, the icon George Hamilton exited the UK version this afternoon, just days before the final episode. Hamilton voiced the possibility of leaving the show in a phone call with his girlfriend Barbara during last night's telecast, claiming that he doesn't contribute much to the challenges and wants to spend more time with his loved ones. Meanwhile, the 70-year-old actor and beady-eyed scion Pratt share yet another similarity that has less to do with kindling campfires and more to do with -- stay with me here -- utter mental illness.
Here's a narrated clip of George Hamilton's most recent appearance on The View.
Here's a preview for this week's episode of The Hills.
Both gentlemen are totes cool with relaying anecdotes about their paramours' psychotic actions. Having sex with a stepmother? Joking about a girlfriend who vows to get pregnant in vindication? Sometimes it's hard to remember that publicity mucks are actually despicable, not just annoying.
