Speidi may finally be getting out of the Costa Rican jungle for good.

Heidi Pratt was released from the hospital Sunday and is recovering in a hotel in Costa Rica after she was admitted with stomach problems following her "isolation" as part of NBC reality show "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!"

Her husband Spencer was said to be by her side, according to Access Hollywood

The "Hills" reality couple have been competing in gross-out gags against fellow celebrities in the Costa Rican jungle to raise money for charity. Stunts include eating bugs and being shut in a dark room with snakes and rats.

On three occasions the Pratts decided they'd had enough and said goodbye to fellow celebrities on the show only to eventually return to camp. 

"Super celebrities don't belong in the jungle," Spencer Pratt said before the couple's most recent skedaddle. 

Upon returning, Heidi blamed "the devil" for their lapse in judgment.

"We realized it's not even about us," she said. "It's about the charity, and it's about the experience here and we took that for granted."

As a condition of the couple's return, though, co-host Mylene Klass required they spend a night in a "lost chamber." The rest of the group -- which includes Sanjaya Malakar, Patti Blagojavich, two Baldwins and other B-list celebrities -- still has to vote to take them back.

"[Heidi was ] rushed to the hospital and had an IV in her arm after being locked in a dark room for 3 days w no food or water. Pls pray she will be ok...Her family is flying out to see her in the hospital," she wrote.  

Pratt's rep confirmed the hospitalization to CNN. NBC executives have not  yet commented on the reports.

But allegations that the couple was "tortured" on the set of the reality show and deprived of rations were shot down by a number of reports.

"Any accusations that Spencer and Heidi were harmed are untrue," a source told Usmagazine.com.

Last week, the head of the network's reality shows said Speidi's antics on "I'm a Celebrity" showed "everything that's wrong with America."

Paul Telegdy told Access Hollywood: "They are insincere, lazy, entitled and they claim the devil has possessed them."

He promised "lots of surprises" for the couple's night in isolation.

"These people really are going to bare their souls," he said.
