(Newser) – Heidi Pratt was rushed to a Costa Rica hospital yesterday after nearly 3 days without food and water on I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here—if the family's version of the story is true, E! Online reports. The Hills star "was throwing up 30 times with nothing in her stomach," sister-in-law Stephanie said. "She thought she was dying." But show producers deny wrongdoing, and one insider says it's all trumped up.

"They slept most of the time" they spent in a blacked-out cave—for about 14 hours, not 3 days, the source said of Heidi and new husband Spencer Pratt. "And when they weren't sleeping, they were laying side by side praying." The reality star celebs, who recently quit the show three times in 2 days, were reportedly moved to another medical facility today. No official diagnosis as of yet.
