LOS ANGELES – Heidi Montag has made no secret of the fact that she supports Republican candidate John McCain for president, but it seems she’s an even bigger fan of his running mate Sarah Palin.
"She will do great in the debates — she’s a strong woman and my prayers are with her," Montag told Pop Tarts on Wednesday at Taco Bell’s "Reality Check Challenge."
"She has definitely been victimized by the media; it’s very hard for a woman being vice president or president. But I think she is standing strong," Montag added.
Speaking of prayers, Heidi's beau Spencer Pratt said he is (sarcastically) praying for "The Hills" co-star Whitney Port’s spin-off show, but his real thoughts are with Audrina Patridge, who is experiencing "personal problems" that are too dramatic to even air.
"My real prayers go to Audrina; she really needs it at the moment. She is going through a lot, I just wish her and her health all the best," Spencer said. "Something big is wrong, but it is up to her as to whether she wants to go public with it."
And could their hit MTV show be getting ready to wind down after this season?
"All good things come to an end, but the big thing for us post-'Hills' is our spin-off 'The Heidi and Spencer Show,' which is definitely happening," he said.
The reality TV duo downed fast food at a Los Angeles Taco Bell to bring awareness to the World Hunger Relief Movement.
"It’s really important to be here today — world hunger is a bigger issue than people realize. Every six seconds a child dies of world hunger, so that’s a huge cause," Montag told Tarts. "It kills more people than AIDS and tuberculosis and those diseases put together. We really need to do all we can to help out."
So where do Montag and Pratt plan to put their "skills" to good use?
"I think right now we need to help America the most," Spencer said, with Heidi adding that she would also really like to assist Africa and Romania.
"Romania? Where did that come from?" Spencer asked.
"It’s a very impoverished place," Montag quickly responded.

Britney's Sex Tape: A Fantasy
For anyone out there dreaming of watching a Britney Spears/Adnan Ghalib sex tape, it is time to wake up, because it looks like it's all fantasy.
According to Star magazine, the paparazzo (who dated Spears earlier this year) has denied that the tape even exists and is reportedly hunting down British tabloid The Sun for fabricating quotes that he was shopping it around.
A source close to Spears also confirmed to Tarts that Britney and Adnan never did the deed with cameras rolling.
