You know how Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt squandered all the millions they made from being famewhores for a couple of years and were living rent free in a beach house that Spencer’s family owned? (A full recap of their foolishness is here.) You would at least assume that they were flat broke and not deep in debt, but the truth is that they owe “hundreds of thousands in commissions” to their agents, and of course can’t get meager additional jobs because a) no one has any interest in them and b) their agents aren’t going to work for them because they never got paid. Spencer is getting desperate and is calling his agent “30 times” a day.
The former Hills star is so unpopular in Hollywood, even his agent won’t answer his calls!
A source tells the new Us Weekly — on stands now! — that Heidi Montag’s hubby, 28, still owes his agency “hundreds of thousands of dollars in commissions” from the millions he and Montag, 25, earned during their run on the MTV reality series.
The source adds that Pratt calls his agent up to 30 times a day. “They just laugh at him or pick up and hang up.”

There’s one additional quote in the print edition that’s not here, and it just states the obvious “Spencer calls his agent daily looking for work, but he won’t book him till he pays them.”
I guess Heidi still gets work showing up to stuff and looking wasted. The last time we saw her she was looking strung out and bloated, while she was thin from admittedly starving herself just three months ago. This is what happens when these flash in the pan celebrities don’t save for a rainy day. These two are the most egregious examples, but I see Kate Gosselin, Snooki, The Jersey Shore drunks and hopefully the entire Kardashian clan following soon. They win the one shot fame lottery for do-nothings and then they make the mistake of thinking they’re famous and that the money will keep flowing in.
This was the actual cover to their book, out in 2009. Here’s a mock-worthy passage I got from the preview on Amazon: “Whether you love us, hate us, or love to hate us, there IS a recipe for infiltrating Hollywood, and we’ve got it. Sure, it’s not rocket science, but it IS a science.” Too bad the “science” wasn’t sustainable, they never paid their bills and couldn’t do basic math.
