The famous infamous pair, deemed as "Speidi" by the tabloids, who were a part of the MTV reality show The Hills speak to The Daily Beast in one of the realest interviews they've ever done...I know, it's weird to put "real" and "Speidi" in the same sentence. Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt made millions off the reality show, with Pratt owning a "million dollar wardrobe" and Montag spending thousands on over ten cosmetic surgeries in 2010 along with a two million dollar investment in her own pop music career. Where are they now? Living in Spencer's parents beach house in Santa Barbara rent free and broke.
Montag thought she was investing in herself "like Kim Kardashian" when she changed her self image. She hoped to make herself a big brand that is likable, however, she admits "my ego got too big. To think I could be someone like that when I was the most hated girl ever." Does she regret it? Oh yes. Heidi said "I would go back and not have any surgery. It doesn't help. I got too caught up in Hollywood..." You can say that again. Though she states she doesn't regret anything, she still wouldn't repeat the same mistakes...which means she regrets it.
What about mighty Spencer? Didn't he go crazy with stones and threaten to kill the MTV show producers? Pratt says that when producer Sara Mast tried to get him to punch his sister, Stephanie, on the show to replicate the 'That Snookie effect,' he snapped. He stated "You want me to punch my sister in the face? Are you trying to get me to kill you?’ I didn’t say, ‘I’m killing you.’ If I did, MTV would have had me arrested.” Hmmm...interesting twist of the story and the thing is a close anonymous source to the production team, who is NOT friends with the couple, says Spencer's recount of the incident is the truth!
Was The Hills actually reality? Their answer: No. Did "Speidi" ever split like the show and tabloids said? Their answer: No. Do they actually act like the Spencer and Heidi people saw on the show? Their answer: No. “I thought when this was all over, I could get on an interview and say, ‘It was all entertainment.’ Spencer said. “We were wrong,” Heidi repeated.“Very wrong,” Spencer concluded.
So basically...they were paid to pretend to be mean and insensitive, the viewers believed the show was reality, the pair carelessly spent their money, and now they're trying to set the record straight since they have nothing to lose? They ruined their reputations and lost their money but does that mean what they said in the interview is a lie? Share your thoughts! Do you believe what they say? Do they deserve the shame or do you feel sorry for them?
