Musical Chairs At The 2009 MTV Movie Awards

The show, which airs tonight, is famous for the onstage antics of the award recipients. But a source who overheard conversations among the event's producers says MTV had a wild time trying to seat its celebrity guests in the audience.

"A producer looked at the original seating chart and realized the whole thing had to be reworked because so many people in the house hated one another," laughs our spy. Among the conflicts:

Whitney Port had to be moved away from "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart after producers realized Port once called the movie "really bad" and found Stewart's role "one-dimensional."

Port and fellow stars of "The Hills" and "The City" -- Lauren Conrad, Stephanie Pratt, Heidi Montag and Brody Jenner -- also had to be kept away from Audrina Patridge because, our source claims, a producer was overheard saying that "everyone on the show hated her." (Patridge will instead sit near "Star Trek" star Chris Pine.) Similarly, Paris Hilton had to be moved away from "The Hills" cast after recently calling the show "so lame and fake" and "cheesy."

Producers also had to scramble to keep Disney's talents -- namely Miley Cyrus and couple Zac Ephron and Vanessa Hudgens -- away from Nickelodeon stars Miranda Cosgrove ("iCarly") and Keke Palmer ("True, Jackson") because Nickelodeon's reps felt that "all the Disney kids are tainted." (Semi-nude photos of Cyrus appeared in Vanity Fair, while Hudgens came under fire after fully nude photos of her circulated online in 2007.)

(The Hills finale and Lauren's last hurrah airs tonight as well)

For the record, Audrina is just as annoying as my-mouth-never-closes-Heidi.
