Spencer Pratt on his split with Heidi: “I’m a famewhore & I’ll never grow out of it”

42544, HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - Tuesday July 13, 2010. Spencer Pratt sports a thick beard and curly mustache as he arrives at the Roosevelt hotel wearing a black tuxedo and carrying a hiking back pack. Later in the day, Spencer emerged dressed in a costume, complete with wig, wrinkly makeup, fake belly and a green sack slung over his shoulder, and made his way down famous Hollywood Boulevard. There he met up with celebrity blogger Perez Hilton and they could be seen taking photos together as well as strolling the Boulevard. Perez, who looked as if he didn't quite believe it was Spencer, acted like a good sport.

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.

    I follow Heidi on Twitter, sad I know, but she isn’t nuts. She is just any regular girl, her tweets were normal expect for some ads but she has some new friends. Spencer how ever is nuts. He is certifiable. Now maybe this is a ploy so her reality show is even better when it comes out. Heidi is moving in with a friend and I imagine Spencer will show up to try and claim her back. However Spencer saying all that ruins that doesn’t it? IDK We will see where it all goes.

  2. purelife says:

    LOL! funny. he rocks that grandpup get-up.

  3. Lilou says:

    Well, you consider that their relationship is real and so is their breakup.

    In my mind, it’s all an act.

    I don’t even think they are stupid and real douche anymore, as I don’t even they show their real personnalities.

    I think all they want is to be famous and they created those caracters from stratch. They decide when they should get married and when they should divorce to have the best publicity coverage.

    So I don’t believe any of this.

  4. kelbear says:

    With the way his face looks in these pics it looks like he has on fake skin and make-up. Still think it’s all an act.

  5. texasmom says:

    I think they are both delusional, but in incompatible ways!

  6. Westcoaster says:

    He sure knows how to get attention

  7. poopie says:

    it’s the great & powerful OZ !

  8. nanster says:

    Yukon Cornelius’ son has moved to California!

  9. denise says:

    Can this guy be anymore annoying?

  10. Riley says:

    I think this whole thing makes People look bad. Remember when People was an interesting magazine with relevant cover stories with people we cared about. They have really sucked lately—Real Housewives of New York City, picking Julia Roberts as most beautiful, Spencer Pratt interviews. Please…

  11. xxodettexx says:

    @denise… i dont think there is anything else he can do to piss me off more than he already has… and then a new article comes out about him… ugh! he is such a twat!

  12. TaylorB says:

    I may have missed something, been a bit busy, but what in the Sam Hill is he doing? Attempting to copy the Joaquin Phoenix nonsense? Or heading out to pan for gold in ‘them thar hills’?

  13. Confused says:

    When did Heidi get married to Bilbo Baggins???

  14. Tia C says:

    Why does he look like he’s wearing an old man costume?

  15. cherryberry says:

    I’m not so sure he’s looking like a “Hollywood Producer”. To me, he looks like El Topo waking up in the cave of freaks.

  16. Jillian says:

    FINALLY he looks as f*cking batshit crazy as he actually is!!!!

  17. Bored@Work says:

    They both deserve each other.. Crazy and love fame, I don’t care about anybody saying how nice Heidi is, the fact of the matter is the way she changed over the years on The Hills is weird. Not just her look but her attitude as well. At first she seemed nice and natural, then you could see the acting. I really believe the Hills started as a reality show. The 1st season was so candid and everyone seemed so natural, after that it went to the pits, when Brody and Spencer came about.

    That’s when all the fake crap started happening. I think it really got to their heads and drove both Heidi and Spencer crazy.

    “There’s no way my love for fame and her love for puppies will ever work out successfully.”

    This is funny but cold. Does anyone know if he drank Drano as a child? Simply Nutters!!

  19. mollination says:

    The sad thing is (or not sad, but ….ironic, maybe?) that Spencer is actually capable of being quite funny/witty. If he had decided to not have a flesh-colored beard and be a complete douchepotato, he could have probably had a shot at a MTV-hosting-type gig or what have you. He could have had more legitimate celebrity.

    Hey, whatever happened to Stephen Colleti from Laguna Beach? He was cute and he never really tried to capitalize on his 15 minutes, did he?

  20. belle Epoch says:

    Why does he look pregnant?

  21. kate217 says:

    Heidi is more delusional. She thinks she looks hot. End of story.

  22. GatsbyGal says:

    (@belle Epoch – it’s because it’s padding. He’s in disguise as a producer.)

    Okay, you know what…Spencer is cracking me up and winning me over. At least he knows and accepts that he is a famewhore and will never be anything different.

    He reminds me a little of myself, honestly. He doesn’t really know what he wants to be, so he’s trying out everything. I, too, went through a “I’m going to be an artist” phase and bought an easel, canvases, and loads of paints…and then nothing came of it, and I moved onto my next idea.

  23. Kylie says:

    He is just so bloody entertaining. I dont think he is as ‘crazy’ as he makes out. He is getting his name out there and people are talking about him. He is getting what he wants.
