Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt: “How we blew $10 million”


I don’t really care about Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt. At this point, they’re just there. I barely acknowledged when they got back together, if they were ever really apart. I vowed that I would only pay attention to them again if: A) Heidi got more plastic surgery, B) Spencer had to be hospitalized with a crystal hanging out of his ass or C) They died in an orgy of crystals, Botox and fire. But I forgot about one thing I’ll always pay attention to: money. Heidi and Spencer have given an interview to Life & Style about how they “blew $10 million”. The answer? Crystals and back-scooping. And more!

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are finally getting a dose of reality. Life & Style can exclusively reveal that after carelessly squandering $10 million — on renting a posh $35,000 per month Malibu pad, $3 million on Heidi’s panned music career including buying songs for $40,000 a piece, renting studios and paying producers plus hundreds of thousands on Heidi’s surgeries and aftercare, six cars, healing crystals and private jets— the fame-hungry former Hills stars now owe $2 million in taxes, are considering filing for bankruptcy and are homeless.

“We were immature, worrying too much about the famous part instead of the actual business part,” Spencer tells Life & Style. “In hindsight, we shouldn’t have spent any of our money. We should have been low-key and saved.” Spencer continues, ““We spoke with a bankruptcy attorney and I’ve looked into unemployment checks.”

Heidi and Spencer never imagined that The Hills wouldn’t still be successful four years after its 2006 debut. So when the final season was suddenly cut from 20 episodes to 10 and they weren’t paid for the 10 unaired episodes, they had already spent the money in advance.

“We thought The Hills was going to be like 90210 and we’d have another five to 10 years,” Spencer says. “The ratings were consistent. But we never saw Jersey Shore coming. Before, TV audiences were fine with seeing us all argue, but now they want you to punch one another in the face and hook up with three different people. Our cast was a bit boring and snoozeworthy in comparison. No wonder we got canceled.”

“At our lowest point, I considered posing for nude pictures in Playboy,” Heidi, who had previously posed for the magazine clothed, admits. What stopped her? Spencer’s parents’ appeal for her to keep her clothes on in exchange for living in their guesthouse—a studio apartment.

“I feel like I’m 14 years old again,” Spencer says. “My parents are my lifeline.” And for once, his statements aren’t an exaggeration. “Spencer’s parents go to the grocery store for us once a week,” Heidi tells Life & Style, “and that’s all we get.”

“We don’t want sympathy,” Spencer tells Life & Style. “We did this to ourselves and feel like idiots. But we’ve grown up and are definitely not as naive anymore.”

[From Life & Style]

I’m glad they say that they don’t want any sympathy, because they’re not getting any. Even though this interview is designed for sympathy, and more importantly, to just have their names in print just for the hell of it, because it’s all they know. They blew their money because they are both so incredibly dumb. Also: why doesn’t Spencer just sell off some of his crystals? Were they investments?

    He is the ugliest man on earth.

  2. Samigirl says:

    I LOVE how you put them in the “stupid” category.
    And yes, good thing you don’t want sympathy bc you aren’t getting it from my neck of the woods. I make due just fine on the mere 30,000 I make yearly. I could live the rest of my LIFE off 10 million. AND retire. These people are EVERYTHING that is wrong with America.

  3. Stronzilla says:

    Is $10 million another name for Mel Gibson?

  4. ElizabethM says:

    I don’t believe this for a second. Everything out of their mouths is carefully crafted for maximum media exposure. Why should this be any different?

  5. lilred says:

    Hard to see the future when you have your head so far up your own a$$.

  6. teehee says:

    Dam I keep saying this on every Pratt’s post: she looked so damned better before!!

  7. Roma says:

    Am I the only one who is utterly offended at the thought of Spencer collecting unemployment? For him to even suggest it is beyond disgusting and an insult to people who legitimately lost their jobs and have troubles providing for their families.

  8. guesty says:

    they are so fos. this is just a new & different angle for them to work their stroll.

  9. jen says:

    Unemployment checks? That would be like giving drugs to a drug addict.

  10. sickofit says:

    bwhahahaha these stupid morons, of course they blew all their money…
    “We thought The Hills was going to be like 90210 and we’d have another five to 10 years”
    i mean please.

  11. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    These people make me sick.

  12. LittleFATMe says:

    Kaiser, I doubt they still have any of the crap they bought. They seem like the type that would leave one place for another (like Costa Rica) and never go back and pack or take care of their sh*t. Just keep rolling and leave a mess (expensive mess) behind…

  13. liz says:

    He’s looking into unemployment checks!? Really, this is what my tax money covers? The poor and ill-advised idiotic decisions this tard has made? And to think that I was denied unemployment back when I was actually out of a job. This is sickening. Someone sedate these two before they get the opportunity to breed.

  14. umabrasileira says:

    I think he doesn’t sell it because it’s a one-stupid-person-deal only. I don’t think he can convince someone else to be as stupid as he is and put all that money in crystals.

  15. Persistent Cat says:

    If it’s true, I know it’s wrong but I love that so much.

    In regards to unemployment, I don’t know how things work in California but where I live (Ontario), you pay into it so you are entitled to collect it, if you need it. There are rules attached though. Again, I don’t know what it’s like in other places and I barely know the rules here.

  16. kelBear says:

    Of course they want sympathy. They want any kind of attention they can get. I was happy about their disappearance for a little while.

  17. Roma says:

    @Persistent Cat: I live in Ontario too and you can’t collect EI if you quit your job without an extenuating circumstance.

    And as far as I know, being a douche isn’t extenuating enough.

  18. Lway says:

    I can live with Eddie and LeAnn – BUT These 2 Bozo’s are just pathetic! I wish the earth would swallow them! L-O-S-E-R-S-

  19. MarenGermany says:

    absolutely no sympathy!
    beyond that i´m sure he “forgot” to say how much of that money went straight up their noses.

    ps.: bwahahahahahahahaha

  20. CaramelKiss says:

    Plastic NOT fantastic. LMAO.

  21. anoneemouse says:

    I almost feel sorry for these losers…clearly their 15 minutes of fame is over.

  22. Persistent Cat says:

    @Roma, that’s what I figured. Does your lame-ass show getting cancelled count as losing your job under extenuating circumstances?

    Regardless, if he collects EI (which he won’t get approved for), it’s a teeny tiny fraction of what he makes. Do food stamps still exist in the US?

  23. bros says:

    unemployment checks for what? dont you have to actually be laid off and on someone’s payroll previously to collect unemployment? i dont think spencer ever had a W-2. i dont believe their stupid sob story either. they get one bag of groceries a week and are homeless? who pays for her extensions and dye jobs?

  24. bellaluna says:

    Yeah. In CA you have to pay into the system in order to get money out of it. You also have to PROVE you are looking for GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT for at least 40 hours per week. Meaning if you’re not working 40 hours per week, you are searching for employment for 40 hours per week. Somehow, I doubt that’s going on in this situation.

  25. December says:

    I thought you could only collect unemployment if you lost a job. Last time I checked, being a reality star and famewhore wasn’t really considered a job.

  26. Hautie says:

    Honestly, I am surprise that Ryan Seacrest has not figure out how to get them a show on E!

    And as we say in Texas…. “they saw him coming”… whom ever sold him crystals as a investment. Idiot.

  27. Leila says:

    I’m not buying the 10 million figure, but I’m sure they blew whatever they had.

  28. craigc says:

    Why do you people keep believing ANYTHING that these people say??? They’ve never been honest…EVER!!!

  29. featherblue says:

    i am too disinterested in the vapid pair to actually read the posts… that said, i am a little bit disturbed by the picture where he looks every inch the manic, jaded hippy. the way in which he’s holding the crystal in his left hand is as though it’s gripping a phallus and the money shot is imminent.

  30. gg says:

    If they get put on the dole I will assume California’s gone to hell in a handbasket.

  31. Melissa says:

    It is absolutely ridiculous that people are allowed to blow through $10 million dollars and file for bankruptcy and unemployment!! I mean seriously?!?!

  32. Westcoaster says:

    Kaiser, where is the photo of Spencer wearing army fatigues and a watch on both arms running through the woods?
    That has to be the funniest photo I have seen in ages! The people in the office where I work can not stop laughing when they see that pic!! That should be a must when ever there is a article about these two fame whores

  33. TaylorB says:

    Lord knows I hate to nitpick about spelling etc. But I think you spelled the headline wrong, I am pretty sure it should read “How we snorted 10 mil dollars” not how they blew 10 mil.

  34. Jeri says:

    Didn’t he cut his parents off, not speaking to them for ages? Now they have to take care of them.

    I doulbt his crystals are worth a fraction of what he paid for them.

  35. OtherChris says:

    This just made my day. He should really consider mowing lawns.

  36. xxodettexx says:

    my only thought: hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

    bunch of moronic douches, both of them

  37. MuMu says:

    Yeah, I feel sorry for these douches. I am taking up a collection in their behalf right now. :-) I feel sorry for Heidi’s mom. Apparently, while Heidi was making millions, her mom was cleaning houses. How humiliating that your own daughter doesn’t look out for you. What selfish jerks. I hope Heidi ends up cleaning houses or something now. That would be perfect/

  38. original kate says:

    what a repulsive duo – she is a walking blowup doll and he is a yeti on speed. go away, please.

  39. moopsie says:

    i think you can scoop your back naturally if you do yoga

  40. la chica says:

    he can’t pay his own taxes but my hard-erned taxes will turn around and pay his unemployment. what a country.

  41. mtn girl says:

    Yeah, I know it’s mean but I’ll take the third option, C. Give ‘em a free ride on the next available, empty, malfunctioning shuttle. Spencer can be Commando McGruber and they’ll really be “stars forever”!

  42. Katija says:


    Seriously? I watched The Hills and her family’s house looked freaking huge. They obviously had quite a few acres and multiple SUVs in the driveway. I think they own a big touristy restaurant or something.

  43. Jaxx says:

    Did she get her old face back? It’s starting to look long and horsey again.

  44. K-Burrrd says:

    LOL, look at Spencer holding up his butt plug.
