Heidi and Spencer Pratt: We made some mistakes

Former stars of “The Hills” Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt now wish they could take back their fame-hungry antics.

Perhaps better known as “Speidi," the two skyrocketed to dubious fame in 2006 with MTV’s faux-reality show “The Hills.” But soon they were in over their heads with photo shoots and publicity stunts, and around 2009 things started winding down.

And according to the Daily Beast, they're now broke and living at Spencer's parents' beach house.

As their celebrity started to veer left of the spotlight, the duo admits they played into fake tabloid stories about their relationship. “We’ve never even been apart,” Heidi says of their breakup plot lines. “We got so deep with how many storylines we had to do to continue the machine,” Spencer adds.

As for the money, they say it went out as quickly as it came in. “My whole million-dollar wardrobe — I would never wear that again,” says Spencer. “They’re props. Everything we were doing, we were buying props. I bought a big blue monster truck just to drive it on 'The Hills' for an episode. Never drove it again.”

And of course, there were Heidi’s many surgeries. “Obviously I wish I didn’t do it,” she now says of her multiple rounds of over 13 procedures, including a chin reduction, a brow lift, buttock augmentation, and breast implants.

Family issues were also stirred up by their bid for fame. Spencer claims a producer on the show tried to coax him into punching his sister in the face for “that Snooki effect” (a.k.a., the ratings boost “Jersey Shore” got when Snooki was punched). Heidi, meanwhile, no longer speaks to her family. (Her support system consists of Spencer and her puppies, she says.)

“We were living each other’s mistakes," Spencer says of the whole reality star experience. "[E]verything we were doing, in retrospect, was a mistake...What we learned is: You can be too famous.”

Yet and still, Spencer admits, “If they called me right now and said, ‘We want you to be on 'Jersey Shoreand be a bully, and we’ll bring your paycheck back,’ I’d say, ‘Get me on a plane to Italy.’ ”

    I am so glad to hear that they are broke and I can only hope this is true and not another publicity stunt. All of you poor retards souls in Hollywood, don't give them any more offers. They deserve everything that they get. I have never liked them but what sealed the deal for me was when they were on I'm a celebrity get me out of here and they were playing for charity and said they were too good for that. Who is too good to contribute to charity? Both of them are hideous creatures and I wish they would stop getting their faces on TV. They make me want to barf!

    They were on a fake-reality show & acquired some fake-fame! Did they really think it would last forever!? You can't even blame this on them being "too young" to know better! If I had an opportunity to make this type of $$$ in my early 20's, you can bet your fake-tan I'd be saving that sh!t, instead of believing the hype! This article is just like the last sob story they put out last fall! Then they were living in a family members guesthouse & had to do their own (gasp!) laundry! If they're living in a beach house life ain't that bad, pleeese!!

    This is the first time that I find these two to be somewhat likeable. They are being real for a change. Heidi actually acknowledged being hated and having too big of an ego, so I will give her some points for that.

    How have they learned their lesson if they just admitted they would go right back to what they were doing if given the opportunity?

      I'm glad someone else noticed that! They haven't learned their lesson. I doubt seriously they are lliving on hard times either. They are so removed from reality it is sad.

    This is all about the two of them getting what they deserve. They both treated their families and friends like garbage throughout their "fame". I would say they are more infamous than famous, but whatever. I hope this is a lesson to them that this is what happens when you take everything and throw it out for something as fleeting as fame and attention.

      But then you'd have to find someone else to hate. well, there is a lot out there to hate, but we really have to find something more constructive to do with our time than continue to give these two the fame they get off on.
