Eager to win their share of the “totally A-list” media coverage surrounding the death of Benazir Bhutto, Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag of “The Hills” briefly set aside their differences to travel to Garhi Khuda Bakhsh, Pakistan, for the assassinated leader’s funeral services. Fellow cast memberAudrina Patridge also made the flight to Karachi.
Only after they arrived on Saturday morning were they informed that the funeral had been held on Friday. They were then beaten by rioters before barely escaping via an MTV production van to the U.S. embassy.
“I’m freaking out. I’m like, my publicist is totally fired,” Conrad fumed to Patridge. The pair only cheered up after learning that Montag, who received the worst beating of the three, would have to stay in Pakistan for treatment and would not be able to accompany them on their return flight.
