Spencer Pratt has given an interview to People Magazine where he attempts to explain why he and Heidi Montag split up. The simple fact that Spencer is giving an interview to People seems reason enough to split, just because Spencer can now get the attention he so craves. At least he admits it though – he tells People that they split because he’s a famewhore and he just wants any kind of press, while Heidi “believes in bad press. There’s no way my love for fame and her love for puppies will ever work out successfully.” Okay, that’s a little funny:
Spencer Pratt always has some strange new ploy for attention up his sleeve – but not his split from wife Heidi Montag.
That, he says, despite the fact that nobody has seen divorce papers and family and Hills castmates are skeptical, is the real deal.
“We love each other but I’m a famewhore and I’ll never grow out of it,” Pratt tells PEOPLE. “[Heidi] knows that and doesn’t want that.”
“I want every kind of press,” he says. “She believes in bad press. There’s no way my love for fame and her love for puppies will ever work out successfully. She just wants to hike and hang out and be calmer.”
As for their infamous “Speidi,” moniker, Pratt says his estranged wife “doesn’t want to be Speidi anymore. She wants to be Heidi Montag: the sex symbol.”
“She thought I’d burn out of this, but no, I’m still the same Spencer who went on The Hills to be famous,” he says. “I still need to do stunts and take cues from Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.”
Pratt, who mentions he and his ex are “friendly,” says Speidi trouble is nothing new. “It’s been a constant battle since we got married,” he says. “She would be like, ‘Are you really Tweeting that? Are you really doing that?’”
So what’s next for the limelight-loving reality personality?
When fighting cyber crime fell through, Pratt says he decided to grow a beard and turn to art. “I’m switching it up,” he says. “I’ve already gone for the blonde, spiky-haired look. Now I’m going for the Hollywood producer look.”
Continues Pratt: “I’m an artist now. I have an easel and everything. I’m going for an art show and a gallery.”
Here’s a question – who is more delusional, Spencer or Heidi? I can’t decide. I think Spencer is right that in Heidi’s mind, she’s going to be a movie star and sex symbol (probably in the same way Lindsay Lohan is currently a movie star and sex symbol). And that’s just… sad. Because Heidi is a freakshow whose only talent is… being a freakshow. But Spencer’s pretty crazy too – “I still need to do stunts and take cues from Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise” – yikes. Verdict: They kind of deserve each other, but I’m still glad Heidi got out. Maybe she can have some semblance of normalcy.
