A source close to the situation explained:
Dog The Bounty Hunter News Archive
NBC is ready to premiere it's latest version of the hit UK reality TV show, I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
The US version, which will feature the same name, will hit the air on June 1st with "celebrities" competing in the jungles of Costa Rica.
And joining him, if the courts permit, is the shady former governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich, who was impeached after being accused of trying to to sell Barack Obama's Illinois senate seat.
But now we've learned of two more contestants on the show.
Sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com that set to join the competition will be Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag!!!!
And it gets even better… they're not even going to be competing together! It's every person for themselves and Speidi will be competing against each other.
Wonder how this will affect their married life?

Wednesday night, racist Dog The Bounty Hunter went on Larry King Live to continue his cold and calculated apology tour.
Now, the victim of his racist rant caught on tape, Monique Shinnery, who is dating his son, is going to sue Dog for slandering her (among other things), the National Enquirer is reporting.
"She’s had enough," says the mag. "He attacked her character and as she points out (and he now admits) he’s never met her or spoken to her. He has accused her of things that never happened and caused her a lot of pain."
Can you sue someone for slandering them in private????

Those are real tears! He's really sad his career is crumbling!
As Dog The Racist prepares to defend himself on TV and save his A&E show, his ex-wife and many close to him are coming forward and painting a disturbing picture about the hate-filled bounty hunter.
Dog's vicious racial outburst came as a shock to many, but it came as no surprise to those who have known him for years. They claim he has been using racist language as long as they can remember.
“I think Dog is a racist – no question,” Dog’s former wife, Lyssa Chapman, tells The National Enquirer. Lyssa was married to the bounty hunter from 1982-1991 and is the mother of three of his children, including Tucker, whose relationship with a woman of color prompted Dog’s venomous rant.
“He ran down every single minority group when I was with him, and n—er was a daily word for him,” says his ex, Lyssa. “He called Mexican people ‘beaners’ or ‘wetbacks’ and Asian people ‘flangeheads.’ I would tell him not to talk that way in front of our kids, but he just ignored me.”
Lyssa recalled one particularly disturbing incident in Denver in which she says Dog lashed out at an interracial couple in a grocery store.
“Dog said to the woman, ‘I know that’s got to be your pimp! I know you wouldn’t be fucking him if you weren’t getting paid!’ They were husband and wife, but when the man started to object, Dog just went crazy, screaming at him, ‘I’ll kick your ass.’”
What an ignorant prick!!!!
Dog also made his views clear to colleagues.
Peggy Munoz, now a private investigator in Lakewood, Colorado, was a former bail bondsman working the same turf as Dog from 1989 to 2005.
She claims Dog once sat in her office and explained his “approach” to the bail bond business.
“Dog said, ‘I don’t like to bond out n—-rs because they don’t have any money and I have trouble collecting on them. And I don’t like to bond out Mexicans because, well, they just run.’”
And, the final nail in his coffin….
Dog’s step-daughter Nicole Gillespie, daughter of one of his other ex-wives, Tawnee, says she regularly heard hateful language from Dog when she was growing up.
“My mother was half-Mexican, and if they fought, Dog would call her a ‘dirty spic whore’ and a ‘dirty Mexican slut,’” said Nicole. “That’s what he taught his kids was the right way to talk. When they got older, they had to un-learn the racism that Dog taught them. It’s sick. It’s like a disease, and it spreads.”
There's not much explaining Dog can do.
By all accounts he's a filthy racist!
After recently suspending production on his show, A&E announced Friday that they were pulling all episodes of Dog The Bounty Hunter off the network indefinitely.
They said in a statement:
"In evaluating the circumstances of the last few days, A&E has decided to take Dog The Bounty Hunter off the network's schedule for the foreseeable future. We hope that Mr. Chapman continues the healing process that he has begun."
They need to show the world that they are appropriately scolding him.
A&E didn't go so far as to say that the show was cancelled, though.
Dog The Bounty Hunter's very own son was the one that sold the racially explosive private phone conversation of the star, which has put him in the middle of a media firestorm and caused A&E to halt production on his reality show.
"I guess because of whatever level of anger he had of his father, he felt the need to express it in that manner," Dog's attorney says, adding that the son sold the tape for "a lot" of money.
Stabbed in the back!
