Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt spent all their money before the Mayan apocalypse

These are some photos of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt outside of ITV Studios in London yesterday. They posed for paparazzi with a copy of The Sun, that terrible Rupert Murdoch tabloid. They’ve just finished Celebrity Big Brother (they came in second place), and I’m assuming they’re still in England to do some bottom-of-the-barrel paid interviews and photo-ops, considering very few people care enough about them to actually hate them or write about them… except for me, maybe. Spencer and Heidi have definitely been trying (and succeeding) to “go away” for the past year – Heidi made one big (paid) public appearance last year in Las Vegas and she gave a few interviews about her “regrets” and how she wished she and Spencer had been smarter about their money.

Speaking of, just how much money did Spencer and Heidi make and how much of it was lost in crystal purchases, excessive bodyguards, crazy plastic surgery and Heidi’s sad attempt at a pop music career? Two years ago, they claimed there was barely any money left. And now they’ve given an interview (paid interview) claiming that they’re broke because they spent the last of their money before the Mayan apocalypse. For real.

Reality TV stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt frittered away their $10 million fortune because they believed the world would end in 2012.

In 2010, Pratt revealed the couple was broke and on the verge of bankruptcy, and they even gave up their luxury home and moved in with his father to save money.

He has now admitted they deliberately spent all their cash before December 21, 2012 —the day the world was set to end, according to a prophesy based on the Mayan calendar.

He tells Britain’s OK! magazine, “We made and spent at least 10 million dollars. The thing is, we heard that the planet was going to end in 2012. We thought, we have got to spend this money before the asteroid hits.

“Here’s some advice, definitely do not spend your money thinking asteroids are coming. But the world didn’t end.”

Opening up about his extravagant lifestyle, Pratt adds, “I would give my friends $15,000 for their birthday. Just cash. I would buy people cars. Every valet I met got a couple of hundred pounds tip. I would pay people $200 just to open doors for us.”

I’m sure that this is just some BS. Like, I’m sure that Spencer and Heidi are pretty broke, absolutely, but I don’t think they’re broke because “they spent all of their money because they thought the apocalypse was coming.” They spent all of their money because they’re incredibly stupid people with bad money-management skills… who may or may not have believed the Mayan apocalypse was real.

    Gross people. I wish there was a special asteroid, just for them. Bam! and they are gone…

  2. Eva says:

    They are actually posing with the Daily Star, which is even lower than the Sun if that’s possible!!

  3. Ponytail says:

    They were on Celebrity Big Brother here in the UK. I assume that’s why they’re in the news.

  4. dcypher1 says:

    haha this story was good for a laugh. these two are stupid. they could have made up a better excuse than that. they should just tell the truth we spent all our money on heidis face and ass.

  5. emmie_a says:

    Yeah like we’re supposed to believe that Spencer is as generous with his money as he claims?? please. He spent his money on himself!

    They were in London bc they participated in Big Brother (& came in 2nd!) and now they are trying to get their own UK-based reality show

    • MsAubra says:

      They can forget it! LOL

      I tried watching “The Only Way is Essex” which is the UK version of “The Hills”, and couldn’t get into it.

  6. Abra says:

    Maybe they should take out some student loans, go to college, and get real jobs. Join us lowly peasants in the real world.

  7. mln76 says:

    Hmmm I wonder if she’s pregnant….the poor kid if so

  8. serena says:

    Her old face is back.

    • emmie_a says:

      Well she definitely is prettier than before but her surgeon did a great job in achieving a *natural* (albeit plastic!) look. I thought of Lindsay after looking at Heidi. One is a “do” and the other is a “don’t!!!”

    • Minnie says:

      Why is her face now shaped like a potato?

  9. Gracie says:

    A fool is soon parted with his money.

  10. Mei says:

    It pains me to say it, but her face looks good here! It looks like everything finally settled. Granted, it wasn’t worth the pain, drama, or pricetag, but she looks nice.

    • Yvonne says:

      I was actually thinking the exact opposite- to me, she still looks ridiculously plastic and fake. And completely vapid (but I suppose that has nothing to do with plastic surgery). But compared to how she looked right after her initial surgeries, I guess this an improvement. I still can’t get past the fact that she would take a perfectly good face- pretty, even- and turn it into this.

    • DesertPoppy says:

      I agree her face looks really good in these photos!

  11. Gine says:

    He looks like every douchebag I knew in high school.

    • MonicaQ says:

      Or in college for me. All he’s missing is a long board, his frat jersey, and seashell necklace.

  12. Jaxx says:

    I keep looking at her and wondering if I would think she was pretty if I didn’t know all the stuff she had done to her face and body. I can’t decide, because I can’t un-know all the weird stuff I know about her. But I still think she just looks weird–and her horse teeth look perfect but fake as can be. Sad person, sad couple. And if they really believed the world was ending and spent all their money…..well, I know for sure that I would never admit it.

    • Tessa says:

      She was so cute before her first nose job, and then still pretty cute after it. I thought she was so pretty for like a year, before she went gonzo and lost her damn mind. She’s not unattractive, I guess, but you can see the fakeness, and remember what she used to look like, and it’s hard to look past.

  13. HadleyB says:

    If only this would happen to the Kardashians…

  14. Kayla says:

    I get that you guys are broke but Heidi splurge a little and go to Supercuts and fix your hair!

    • emmie_a says:

      …or just take out the extensions!

    • QQ says:

      I think ive heard her mention that its hers and she can grow it that long naturally and all, which …Why?!?

    • Alana Fajina says:

      LMAO!!!! Oh my gosh, cracking up!!!
      Other than the fact that I was going to say just looking at these two make me sad for the younger generation, I was also going to say that Heidi’s hair looks like an old dried up broom. A trim girlfriend, can do wonders. Also, that dingy blond hair is not doing her any favors.

  15. LL says:

    $10 fucking million? Are you kidding me??

  16. Annie says:

    I think they’re joking with the apocalypse thing but giving cash to friends and valets like that? They seriously thought they’d be rich forever. Were they not aware of how hated they were?

    Elvis Presley reduced his fortune significantly for doing this: giving expensive gifts to everybody, like luxury cars to his friends, etc. I don’t get people who don’t take care of their money.

    • oh dear says:

      it might be clever to leave a buffer in the bank but i cant help but think its a nice thing to do, when you have so much. charlie sheen for example gives away a lot of money, which i think is really nice of him. some people see it as a dumb thing to do but i think its selfless. maybe they dont value money the way “normal” folks do, you know, those who have to watch every penny so they can put food on their table and pay the rent.

      besides, people like elvis got their money from their fans so its only natural to give some back to them lol but yeah, you should always save some for rainy days and for the family you leave behind.

    • Nina W says:

      I don’t believe for a second this guy gave out lavish tips and gave friends cash presents. He’s completely self-interested and will say anything to make himself look good,

      • Me too says:

        Agreed. Spencer Pratt is too greedy to spend money on anyone but himself. They are just trying so desperately to get in the gossip news they made up this BS story that a lot of people here and else where are believing. They do have their money still and they are just hungry for more. Watch these two will be talked about and they will take whatever offer they can get.

  17. Elise says:

    I can’t believe they are still married. Good for them?

  18. Jess says:

    I hate to say it but her face actually looks a lot better here. Settled down a bit maybe? I sooo wish she would go a darker blonde though. Would suit her a lot better.

  19. TQB says:

    I love this. Here are the people who are dumb enough to believe in the apocalypse; turns out if you were that stupid you blew your money long before it.

  20. Suzy from Ontario says:

    These people disgust me. It’s a crime they were ever rich in the first place when there’s so many people in need. They are complete and utter morons – immature, narcisstic, completely out of touch with reality.

    I think it’s funny how all these completely talentless idiots with little personality or way to make more than minimum wage who due to luck got a taste of fame and wealth are so desperate now to try to hang on to it. They got used to thinking they were all stars and in their little minds they convinced themselves it was due to something special about them. Surprise! Look at all the reality “stars” who think all their wealth and fame is because they are so smart and so talented…until the public’s desire to watch them fades or the show gets cancelled or they get fired and realize after a few months that nobody really wants them. Bank it while you’re hot reality stars, because it doesn’t last forever. (Unless you’re a Kardashian and don’t get me started on them!)

  21. GrnMtGirl says:

    What an idiot Spencer is!! If there was an asteroid coming toward the Earth we would know about it. He should watch the science channel instead of partying so much!!!

  22. shewolf says:

    Pretty sure this isnt the truth, this is their brand. This is how they stay relevant and attract attention.

  23. Amanda Garrett says:

    I’ll say something nice. It looks like Heidi’s face has settled a good bit and she doesn’t look AS freaky as she used to. Sooo…there’s that.

  24. Ms Kay says:

    I hope they’re joking about the Apocalypse, this has got to be the worst excuse ever… Hell I’d believe Tom Cruise to hide in a bunker on that day but not to the point to spend all his money even though half goes into CO$… They clearly spent it onto something else and certainly not based on doomsday!

  25. judyjudy says:

    Maybe the world DID end on December 21st and I’m living in some sort of alternate universe hell because I was actually happy to see these two instead of the Leann Rimes triangle.

  26. Jayna says:

    Heidi was a good example of how plastic surgery can work. She had a boob job that wasn’t over the top and a nose job that looked good. She was an even cuter version of herself.

    Then she goes to this next set of procedures, massive boob job, forehead lift, something to her jaw, on and on, and her face looked in her thirties and frozen and there was nothing unique about her. Her cuteness was gone.

    It has settled now, so better, but she still has a plastic surgery look to her. Why do all these women think more is better? Many of these housewives shows are disturbing. None of them look better with all the things they do. As much as I can’t stand Kyle, at least her lips and cheeks are normal. Her skin looked better this season, so probably doing one of the lasers and very minimal botox (you can still see lines) But at least she doesn’t have those God awful fat lips and chipmunk cheeks and overbotoxed.

    Lindsay is another example of someone young destroying their face. It’s not the 40-somethings now that are plasticizing their faces, it’s the 20-somethings also.

  27. Mari says:

    I’m thinking broke in celebrity terms is completely different than broke in my terms. When I say broke, I mean, ramen noodles broke. When they say broke it’s I traded my ferarri in for a hybrid.

  28. HappyJoyJoy says:

    No, I’m sorry. Her face does not look better. It looks like a moon. She took away too much chin. She looks like a freak with my little pony’s hair.

  29. BRE says:

    Actually I had read a few days ago that they are planning on moving to the UK because they are looking to be the new Posh & Becks

  30. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha that’s all I have to say and where’s the Mayan Apocalypse when you really need it:
    Great analysis suzy from Ontario.

  31. Holden says:

    I actually don’t believe this story at all and think they blew threw their money the old fashioned way, but either thought this version was funny or more palpable.

  32. snappyfish says:

    the new age yeti is back! huzzah!

  33. Madpoe says:

    AAAAhh ha ha ha haaaaha *WHOOO*

  34. Migdalia says:

    Have you watched these people?! I firmly believe they thought the world was going to end and spent their money.

  35. KellyinSeattle says:

    They remind me of a sorority girl and a frat boy.

  36. Penguin says:

    She should’ve stopped after her first nose job. Her boobs were fine, she had a nice athletic looking figure. Smaller boobs look better on that type of figure imo. She looks ok now but compared 2 how she looked on first few seasons of hills it’s not good.

  37. Alarmjaguar says:

    OMG! This was totally an episode of The Love Boat!!

  38. Al says:

    “They spent all of their money because they’re incredibly stupid people with bad money-management skills…”

    THIS! And now he’s just saying the apocalypse story to get attention. And I guess it worked…

  39. Sara says:

    God LC must be laughing all the way to the bank. Lauren knew that Spencer would destroy Heidi. I just don’t understand how you could believe that anyone can predict when the world ends. It’s ridiculous.

  40. xoxokaligrl says:


    They look like crap too.
