They’re two of the most attention-seeking celebrities ever, but it looks like Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have seen the error of their fame-whoring ways. That, or they’re just after more media coverage by saying their fame-seeking was mistake. We’ll let you judge…
The Reality TV couple - who are now completely broke and living in Spencer’s parent’s beach house in Santa Barbra because they afford rent - admit that fame isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, “What we learned is: You can be too famous,” Spencer told online mag The Daily Beast. "We were living each other's mistakes. Everything we were doing, in retrospect, was a mistake. The second we continued on our quest for fame was a mistake. This isn't a business. That was the big thing I didn't get: Reality TV is not a career. Anyone who says, 'Oh, you can have a career in reality'- that is a lie."
The couple also confess that they wasted all the money they earned from working on The Hills, with Spencer saying, “I probably spent a million dollars on suits and fancy clothes. My whole million-dollar wardrobe – I would never wear that again. 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.”
While Heidi also admits she wasted thousands of dollars on clothes, “I should have known growing up and not having any money ever that I should have kept every dollar that I had. I thought I was investing in myself and my brand. Like Kim [Kardashian]. When she buys these clothes, she’s investing in herself. Because she is a big brand and is likeable. I thought I had that potential. My ego got too big. To think I could be someone like that when I was the most hated girl ever.”
Heidi, 25, also addressed the multiple plastic surgery procedures she underwent to transform her image, admitting that she made a mistake, “Obviously I wish I didn’t do it. I would go back and not have any surgery. It doesn’t help. I got too caught up in Hollywood, being so into myself and my image. I don’t regret anything, but if I could go back, I wouldn’t do it.”
So… what do you think about Heidi and Spencer? Do you really think they’ve learned from their mistakes, or is this just another way to get column inches and make the public feel sorry for them?
