LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Reality TV star Heidi Montag said on Thursday she was calling off her divorce from Spencer Pratt, and the couple announced they were trying to make their marriage work.

In a statement to People magazine, the squabbling pair made famous in MTV show "The Hills", said they had decided to reconcile. "We are back together trying to make things work," said the couple labeled "Speidi".

"We do love each other and realized we do want to spend the rest of our lives together."

Montag, 24, filed for divorce from Pratt, 27, in July after 15 months of marriage in what was suspected to be a publicity stunt by the fame-hungry duo.

In August, Pratt claimed he had a sex tape featuring Montag that he was shopping to a major Los Angeles porn company. Days later, Montag and Pratt were photographed together at a Costa Rica hotel, casting further doubt on their apparent rift.

Pratt and Montag met on "The Hills" -- the four-year TV reality show about 20-somethings trying to find themselves in Los Angeles that also made reality television celebrities out of Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge before the series ended in July.
