Heidi Montag’s mom gives her faux marriage six months

Heidi Montag’s mom just gave an interview to Us Weekly in which she describes Heidi’s new “husband” Spencer Pratt as someone who sounds exactly like an abusive husband. Though Darlene Egelhoff never uses those words, she definitely uses the terminology, describing how Spencer has isolated Heidi from all of her friends and family, and how she thinks Spencer may have drugged Heidi to get her to marry him.

“He’s manipulative and seems to have power over Heidi,” Darlene Egelhoff, 46, told Us in an exclusive interview from her home in Crested Butte, Colorado the day after Montag, 22, blew off Thanksgiving with her family to stay with Pratt in Cabo San Lucas., the site of her Nov. 20 elopement. “I would like to see a blood test from Mexico. It wouldn’t surprise me if he had her drugged

“…Spencer has tried to cut everyone out of her life,” Egelhoff tells Us. “I’ve been honest with Heidi, and it’s caused our relationship to decline. I’m more devastated about that than the marriage, because I’m confident the marriage won’t work out.”

Egelhoff – who divorced Montag’s dad when she was just 3 and admits she rushed into things too – says they used to be inseparable.

“She was my Velcro, always attached to me,” says Egelhoff. “I want the best for my daughter – and he’s definitely not it. I think Spencer wants to possess Heidi more than marry her.” So how long does she give their marriage? “Six months,” she says. “I think it’s the biggest mistake Heidi’s ever made,” Egelhoff adds.

The fact that Heidi and her mom used to be “inseparable” may indicate that Heidi is clingy and will take anyone that makes her feel safe. Spencer has been described as incredibly controlling by just about everyone that’s ever talked about him. In fact I have yet to hear anyone say one good thing about him. The guy has such anger management issues and just seems so all-out diabolical that it’s hard not to wonder if he’s capable of really bad things.

Hopefully Heidi and Spencer will pull an Eddie Murphy/Tracy Edmonds and choose not to make the wedding legal.

    Don’t you have to be legally married before people can only give you six months?

  2. kate says:

    will these two douchebags just drop dead already?

    To a mother a child is precious, worth doing anything to save. In this case though this lady’s going to have to wait until said child crashes and burns. Heidi is a moron who is going to have to learn on her own how bad her choices are. Spencer is a soulless, almost demonic character who would start a suicide cult if he could find enough idiots like Heidi.

    Anna Nicole had only six months after her “wedding”.I think she had no idea that her marriage wasn’t legal.But Heidi is smarter than late Anna Nicole.

  5. Kate says:

    He is so incredibly creepy looking. I also wish they would just disappear.

    Spencer looks like the Cabbage Patch Kid doll from hell. 😐

  8. Rosanna says:

    The fact that Heidi and her mom were inseparable despite Heidi being over 18 might indicate that it’s the mom who is abusive, not Spencer. This woman is creeeepy.

  9. Melanie says:

    @ Rosanna–I don’t think she meant they were inseparable when she was over 18, considering Heidi had moved from Colorado to California (when she was over 18) and we haven’t heard anything about her mom being unsupportive of that. If you watch The Hills, Spencer is absolutely portrayed as an abusive partner, in that he is completely unsupportive of her having relationships with close friends and family.

  10. vdantev says:

    Such an interesting interpretation of heterosexual masculinity her ‘husband’ is.

  11. aleach says:

    why is it “creeeeepy” that a mother and daughter were close? that was a stupid comment.
    anyways, they both suck and did you see those “wedding rings”?? HAHAHA! can someone please explain those hideous things to me.

  12. OzGirl says:

    I live in Sydney, Australia – and we don’t really get the Hills on TV much here … So intriguied by all this I bought the DVDs and started watching … could Spencer really be as bad as everyone says? Could Heidi really be that dumb?

    uh .. YES!!!!! haha … I cannot get over this, I must admit, I really REALLY dislike Spencer, but it makes for good viewing. shame it’s actually real people though.

  13. Frenchie says:

    They might be dumb (I think so) but they can be manipulative at the same time. For instance they have no dignity and would do anything for some more minutes of celebrity. Maybe the Mom’s interview is part of the scenario of the show, gives it a little spice ??
    How comes it’s always and only US weekly that is having interviews, covers and pics related to them ?? Like they are actually pure products from US weekly and MTV.
    (Spencer looks some much like a dam stupid chipmuck or hamster. He is like my cat : getting furrier and fatter with the winter coming)

  14. Polkasox says:

    I agree with Frenchie, he looks furrier and fatter. And did she paint her nails with white out??

    My boyfriend put it well, they look like evil barbie and ken. I wonder if his man bits are just smooth plastic?

  15. RReedy says:

    I hate to sound ignorant, but who ARE these people and why are they famous???

  16. 88modesty88 says:

    I don’t get anyone’s preoccupation with these two. Don’t have The Hills here, but it doesn’t sound like the type of show I’d like to watch in any case.

    And he’s really not handsome. Looks like Gil Grissom from CSI, only Grissom is a bit more interesting and intelligent looking…

  17. bros says:

    someone as cheap looking as heidi should never wear an animal print. god she looks hideous.

  18. Sue D. Nimm says:

    To RReedy: as far as I know (I don’t watch the Hills or Mountains or whatever, just look at sites like this) they are just random plastic people who star in some crappy TV ‘reality’ show. I don’t know why they’re famous. I think it’s along the lines of “Satan owns the media.”

    I rarely ever post comments, but I decided to on this one… I don’t like either of them, but I feel bad for Heidi. Spencer makes me absolutely NAUSEOUS!!!

    He’s a classic abuser, not in the physical sense, but he just likes the idea of having power over someone. My ex was exactly like him – he wasn’t always a bad guy, in fact we had some really great times which is what kept me around for so long. But he also made me feel like crap about myself a lot of the time, and I felt like I was always having to prove myself. Anyone who tried to point out to me that he wasn’t a good guy got cut out of my life at his insistence that they weren’t really friends (he could always point out SOMETHING they had done to prove that, forget that he probably had done the same or worse). By the end of five years, I had no friends, didn’t speak to my family, and had no sense of self worth at all. He never once hit me, so anyone telling me he was abusive was just absurd in my mind.

    I don’t consider myself to be stupid, but he had backed so far into a corner with no one (or so I thought) to turn to, that I really felt like I needed him to prove I was worth anything. And no one can help out a woman in that situation until they are ready to admit that the relationship they are in isn’t healthy b/c until you can admit it yourself, you really believe everyone else is just against you.

    All fake. He’s gay. The end.

  21. hairball says:

    april, that was a great comment. I’m sorry that had to happen to you.

  22. BabySanta says:

    I don’t hate Heidi. I actually feel sorry for her..
    But Spencer.. Gawd he makes me pissed.
    He should just go away.

  23. Ana says:

    She is staying with him to get ammo for a tell-all book. Or magazine article.
    Oh s*** why do I care?!?!?
