Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt made $3 million in 2 years

I try really hard not to be one of those people that’s always bemoaning the lack of justice and fairness in the world, at least when it comes to material, trivial things. But this is just beyond all of my restraint. According to a report that came out yesterday, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have made over $3 million in the last two years. Yep, all those posed “candid” shots of them going for carriage rides in Central Park and being all lovely dovey in matching outfits at baseball games actually were worth something. A lot of it, in fact.

MTV’s “The Hills” Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are one the most photo and press-friendly couples on tv, and they know how to cash in on it.

In Touch Weekly claims:
Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag may be one of the most controversial couples on television — but they’re laughing all the way to the bank. Since coupling up on The Hills two years ago, the pair have raked in about $3 million from their TV salaries, club appearances, photo shoots and business deals. “We are trying to entertain in every aspect of our lives,” Heidi says. “Reality stars are grasping for their 15 minutes of fame,” notes David Scott Sloan, a private wealth services lawyer who doesn’t work with them. “And it looks like Heidi and Spencer are trying to make the most of their chance.” For Heidi, 21, that means also pursuing a music and acting career. “I plan to win an Oscar,” she says. “I’m very ambitious.” Although the couple haven’t made any money off her singing yet, Spencer, 24, who is also Heidi’s manager, is very optimistic about their financial future. “My hustle is just too crazy,” he says. “I’m trying to take over the world!”

How badly did you just want to throw up? It’s that sort of deluded self confidence that leads to people like David Blaine and every reality “star” on the planet. And you know what, I could deal with that. I mean Heidi and Spencer are morons, and totally clueless to the fact that everyone hates them. But now I understand why they’re clueless – the pair are making bank. If I had raked in $3 million in two years and people sometimes mentioned I was really disliked, I’d hand them my bank statement and be like, “What were you saying?”

Now I totally understand why Heidi and Spencer don’t get how hated they are. And even if they do – and are just playing naive – clearly they’re doing a pretty good job at playing the game. This makes me want to punch Spencer Pratt in the ear even harder than before.

    Man. How is that fair.

  2. Susan says:

    An Oscar? That is so funny. She truly is delusional. 8O

  3. KateNonymous says:

    Or they do know that they’re hated, but as long as they keep raking in the cash, they just don’t care.

  4. Syko says:

    If I raked in three million in two years, I wouldn’t care if you despised me.

    But yes, it makes me want to puke.

  5. Roni says:

    How in the hell???????

  6. JennGush says:

    I don’t know about an oscar but I am absolutely positive that she will win a grammy in the near future. Her voice and singing abilities are nothing short of AMAZING!

    I hope you all just sensed my sarcasm in that previous statement. I think I’d rather cut my ears off than listen to her sing. I think the only reason they make so much money is b/c they are on the cover of US Weekly every other freaking week. These two are such a waste of air.

  7. geronimo says:

    “My hustle is just too crazy,” he says.”

    Pratt by name and nature. That face was born to be punched with an iron bar. Beyond sickening but who to blame? Objectively, they’re just very shrewd operators, cashing in while they can on other people’s gross stupidity.

  8. Curlyfry80 says:

    I did a spit take when I read that she plans to win an Oscar one day. Have there ever been two people who have been bigger douches? Is it possible that I can despise someone (or two somebodies) more than Paris?

    Sigh.

    Yet, they laugh all the way to the bank.

  9. Ron says:

    These two are as useless and a hemmeroid. But ya know Preparation H makes lotsa money too! It’s just gross. It just goes to show you the dwindling intelligence of our youth.

  10. devilgirl says:

    You know there is something really wrong with this world when hard working, decent people can barely earn a living and douches like these two make 3million for being douches! I want to know who in the hell wants them around for anything? I know I would pay to see them beaten by an angry mob, but that is about it!

  11. K8 says:

    Oh, God, that is just sickening. Speidi has crossed the line from lovey-dovey to puke-inducing and creeptacular. Almost as creepy as Pratt’s flesh-colored beard.

    But then again… $3 mil… not a bad pay for just being *gag* cute.

  12. Banana Boat says:

    I want to see a before pic of her again. HOMELY! She had so much work done so the only interesting thing will be to see how it holds up (looks down at boobs) Literally.

    He looks creepy with that blond scrudd- I mean why bother? They both have cheesy veneer grins. I can see them looking like creepy Mormons that are into swinging on the side. Says a lot about our culture these nobodies make bank while some real heroes (ER docs, rescue workers, etc..) toil for a pittance comparatively.

  13. lola lola says:

    oh please. These two ninnies will piss away any and all money they make. They’ll both be in bankruptcy before they are 30.

  14. Bodhi says:

    “Controversial”? I don’t think they are controversial in the slighest. Vomit indusing, however, is a different matter all together

  15. Jody says:

    “I can see them looking like creepy Mormons that are into swinging on the side.”

    When I first read this I wanted to be offended because I’m Mormon, but that’s pretty damn funny. They totally look like they could be from Provo, UT (Mormon capitol of the world). I hate that generic “Blond/over-tanned/huge white veneers” look.

    and the kissing pictures…blech! Could they look anymore awkward, her fish lips are about to come off her face.

  16. Banana Boat says:

    Jody- sorry. I did consider that I would alienate/piss off the Mormon contingent there but.. I have met nice Mormons and they get a bum rap sometimes but you said it- there is a ‘look’ to some that is blond/blue eyes and giant white teeth! So funny. I used to live in UT so.. yep.

  17. yawn says:

    i dont believe that shit at all.. do the math.. 3mil divide that by 100 weeks and you believe these idiots made 30k a week for the hills and various photo shoots..
    bullshit.

  18. bros says:

    the mormon thing was funny. spencer has the look more so than heidi but i can definitely see him in a suit knocking on doors selling either steak knives or the book of mormon, no offense to jody. i just dont think the comparison to david blaine is warranted since I think david actually has talent and skill and I havent seen these two do any magic tricks.

  19. Jody says:

    No offense taken at all– and bros, the steak knives HAHAHAHA, I am in tears right now from laughing so hard. I poke fun at stereotypes all of time, so what can I do when I’m faced with a personal one? I must laugh.

    The underground swinging isn’t a known stereotype to me :) but… sometimes people have a hard time finding balance between their beliefs and being able to function in society; sending them flying off the edge.

  20. kate says:

    if there is any justice in the world these two asshats will be broke, fat and living in a trailer somewhere with their 3 rodent-faced children in 5 years.

  21. Val says:

    This tells a lot about our society *sigh*

  22. CeeJay says:

    I have to say that I’m actually not too impressed with $3 mil over two years. Think about it. There’s two of them and it took two years so basically each of them made $750K a year. In Hollywood dollars that’s pitiful. Seriously, there’s big bucks to be made in H’wood. My niece and her husband have done bit parts in a variety of different shows, some big, some not so big, and they’re doing far better than this. They don’t even work in the industry consistently either. So if you look at it from that perspective these two are either lying out of their mouths about their income or they haven’t negotiated very good contracts. With all of the paid personal appearances, photo sales, reality T.V. work,etc., they should be making a whole lot more. No wonder he always nickels and dimes every job for all it’s worth. Now I actually feel kind of sorry for these two losers.

  23. Jaundice Machine says:

    Blond, bland, dumb as a brick and rich as fuck – this is why the world hates us so.

  24. Persistent Cat says:

    The first step is to never publish photos of them. Then when people/agencies/whatever stop buying photos of them, they’ll stop being photographed. Two good things can come from that. 1 – No more photos of them (yay!) and 2 – We get to see what ridiculousness they’ll resort to to get noticed. We all win.

  25. TheLostGirl says:

    Two fools and their money are soon parted :mrgreen:

    Summarizes in a nutshell the stupidity of the American media consumer. If there wasn’t a demand…..

  27. TP VERO says:

    Do people with actual talent ever do things interesting enough to make these pages? Show business has a rich history of actually entertaining people and getting them to lose the blues once or twice in a drab everyday life. Instead all I see is everyday people elevated to I-don’t-know-what-to-call it, giving me the blues.

    I don’t even know these two and the first thing I thought of when I first looked at this picture was… ‘oh puke’…

    Yes, the American public has to be the blame… they must be going to these super market openings. Instead they should go to the nearest nurse or teacher and shake a hand.

    A few weeks ago, In Touch weekly said that Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag were raking in millions based in large part on appearance fees. They said:

    Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag may be one of the most controversial couples on television — but they’re laughing all the way to the bank. Since coupling up on The Hills two years ago, the pair have raked in about $3 million from their TV salaries, club appearances, photo shoots and business deals. “We are trying to entertain in every aspect of our lives,” Heidi says.

    But good news. None of that is true. A friend who is very much in that world told me the other day that it’s laughable to suggest that any club would pay these two empty vessels even a dime to appear at their club. At best they might get a Jaeger shirt. Some Vegas clubs will pay Britney or Lindsay, Paris really does get 100 grand, but no one else is even close. Kardashian gets around 3,500 but she’s really the only one of this ilk who makes anything. And why would they. They suck. I would let a truck full of greased pigs into my club before these nobodies.

  29. KC says:

    I hate them. I would pay more taxes for them to just GO AWAY! THAT WANNABEE PARIS HILTON!

  30. RLehart says:

    They are the antichrist !!! They are not controversial, they are walking drones that idiots in our society are idolizing. I can’t believe that they and people like them are becoming famous for being on a completely thoughtless, useless, absolutely unintellegient reality show. I feel like I lose I.Q. points everytime I even see a picture of them. I don’t get it and I don’t understand why are socity rewards people like them. We should send them all to their own private island.

  31. vdantev says:

    They are the antichrist !!! No they are not, Satan has better taste and frankly, they are never at the meetings.

  32. jennifer Alexander says:

    I THINK THE TWO OF THEM ARE COMPLETE IDIOTS,ESPECIALY HEIDI. WHY DON’T YOU GROW A SPINE OF YOUR OWN. SPENCER IS A COMPLETE DOUCEBAG!!!! HE TOTALLY WAS DISRESPECTFUL OF HEIDI’S MOM. SPENCER WHY DON’T YOU GROW A SET OF BALLS, AND TREAT WOMEN THE WAY THEY SHOULD BE TREATED. HEIDI KICK HIM TO THE CURB LIKE A RED-HEADED STEPCHILD. SPENCER, DO YOU HAVE A JOB OR ARE YOU RIDING THE COATTAILS OF YOUR DUMB-ASS GIRLFRIEND.

    CONGRADULATIONS to the “ACTORS” known as “Spencer Pratt & Heidi Montag” !

    However to the “rest” of AMERICA who thinks that this “Reality TV SHOW” is not just a totally scripted “FARCE” no different than, then say the “X FILES” or “FRIENDS” or even “World Wide Wrestling Federation” “Plots”. IT is you who is actually being “FOOLED”.

    Spencer and Heidi have figured out that the “more controversial” they are on TV, (aka -The “bad guys”) the more people will “Hate” them…therefore they will be “in” every episode, and making $$ Bank $$. Remember, Lauren Conrad was the “good girl”, Brody Jenner is the “Hunky, Nice, Guy”, Audrina Partridge is the “Sexy Outsider”, …heck, every one of them has a “Character” role.

    I’m not saying they aren’t regular young adults. But, “how do they “Accidently” end up at the same nightclubs…ready to “Fight” over the latest “argument” or “bro-mance”?

    JUST laugh and enjoy it. Really it is the same as Seinfeld. Except, Seinfeld was obviously “written better”, and the “actors/comediens” were of higher quality. Other than that, not much difference.
