Heidi & Spencer want to support (and cash in on) the troops

The thought of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt spending time in a war zone is pretty appealing to most people. But the possibility of them somehow getting a little bit of good publicity is utterly sickening. The disgusting duo are pimping out their new friendship with (presumed) republican presidential candidate John McCain’s daughter Meghan, and are trying to use their new connections to finagle a trip to Iraq.

… Senator John McCain — or at least his daughter — has certainly struck up a friendship with a Hollywood celebrity — who’s none other than Heidi Montag. The Hills star, who has voiced her support for the Republican presidential hopeful, has been in close contact with Sen. McCain’s daughter, Meghan.

“She’s very sweet,” Heidi tells Extra. “We have a lot in common.” That includes their support of the troops. Meghan is trying to engineer a trip to Iraq for Heidi and fiancé Spencer Pratt. “Her dad definitely has some pull with the military,” Spencer says. “I think she’s going to put that together for us.”

Heidi is determined to entertain the troops overseas as her late stepbrother Eric O’Hara served in the 82nd Airborne Division. He wasn’t killed during duty, but passed in a freak accident back home in Colorado. “My brother was an airborne ranger in Afghanistan and Iraq,” she says. “It’s very important to me and important to Spencer to support the troops and go over there.”

Oh please. Don’t make this sound like anything more than what it really is: more fodder for your pathetic “celebrity.” I’ve never seen any couple set up more obvious, cheesy, and trite photo ops in my life. Heidi and Spencer on a horse-drawn carriage in Central Park! Heidi and Spencer catching a fly ball at the baseball game! Heidi and Spencer running through a field of daisies!

Look I appreciate supporting the troops, but that’s clearly not what this is. And it’s just crass for Heidi to use her deceased stepbrother to make it sound like something deeper than what it is. You want your pictures on the pages of OK! And you’re desperate to be taken seriously; but the harder the two of you try, the worse you look. Just give up, make your sex tape, get into some minor-league legal trouble and fade into oblivion with the rest of the Q-list celebs.

Here’s Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt having lunch on Robertson Boulevard in L.A. on Friday. Don’t you pose like that when you eat? It looks ever so natural. Images thanks to PR Photos.

    JayBird,agree with your commentary. That’s one way to bring the troops home in a hurry!

  2. daisy424 says:

    Just had my comment eaten.
    One good way to get the troops home in a hurry, if only out of self preservation.

  3. Sandra says:

    Even media whores are allowed to have feelings. She is human.

  4. lb says:

    I doubt this is out of sincerity as much as it is self-promotion. Her efforts would be better served visiting the many many injured and crippled soldiers at the many military hospitals and rehab facilities in this country. Only reason for her to go to Iraq is media attention.

  5. kate says:

    no, she’s not human…she’s a blow up doll with the IQ of a turnip. please let them step on a landmine, and save some poor iraqi farmer’s legs.

  6. Amy says:

    My husband and close friends are in Iraq right now. This is not a joke for us and that’s what Heidi is turning this into. I hate people who fake patriotism and go on these trips to Iraq just to show the media what a good person they are. Its self important self serving bullsh**…….

  7. Jaundice Machine says:

    Wouldn’t their celebrity status be put to better use in Guantanamo Bay?

  8. vdantev says:

    Send them, maybe they’ll get caught in an insurgent attack and spare us all.

  9. Other Karen says:

    If they’re not doing service for the USO, it’s rather a waste of resources, isn’t it? I’m sure the troops have something better to do than protect a couple of self-promoting useless parasites on society.

    It’s nice of them if they are doing USO or other entertainment though. Publicity or not, it’s still an enormous amount of trouble to get all the clearances and permissions to go there.

    Her stepbrother would definitely influence her interest in the troops.

  10. CJ says:

    Enough. Please stop promoting these two losers.

  11. Megan says:

    God I hate them.

  12. Frenchie says:

    to Jaundice Machine: Torture is used in Guantanamo on not convinced-guilty people, so lets not add up to their torments by sending them those idiots.

  13. Lauri says:

    I am all for them going to Iraq!

    But I would prefer that they not be allowed to come back.

  14. TIA says:

    Ughhhhhhh I CANNOT STAND THEM !! They give me the creeps. She should NOT use this as a publicity stunt. I agree with Amy, there are real people over there and she should not be using it to promote herself.. GIVE ME A BREAK. She also wants McCain to be President. This should tell you what type of idiotic moron loser she is.. WHAT A WIERDO MAN.

  15. Lauri says:

    Tia, you think anyone who wants McCain for president is an “idiotic moronic loser?”

    Just askin’.

    What does that make Obama supporters?

  16. daisy424 says:

    @Lauri – I agree 🙂

  17. Debby says:

    Give me a break!! Those two will do anything for media attention. Would they do it if there was no media? I think not.

    I am so sick of hearing about these two. They are even willing to make a big stink over whether someone made a sex tape or not. Don’t they have anything better to do?
