Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt gave inTouch an exclusive (who else?) about why they’re so poor. And this time, it’s a real reason and not that bullshit apocalypse one. Guys, I almost feel bad for them. They clearly had no idea what they were getting into and that their fame (and money) wouldn’t last eternally. Here’s how they lost their millions, all 10 of them. As Mr. Pratt told inTouch,
We were immature and we got caught up. Every time we’d go out to eat, we’d order $4,000 bottles of wine. Heidi was going to the mall and dropping $20,000 to $30,000 a day. We thought we were Jay Z and Beyoncé.
Heidi offered her bit:
Now I can spend like $100 at Victoria’s Secret. I feel like a different person.
Girl, $100 at VS is a LOT. I can’t even do that. Okay now here’s the part where they’re asked if they have any regrets about doing The Hills. Spencer said,
I didn’t realize people would only know me as that character. It was just a persona I played up to make a paycheck.” Heidi remembers the reality show as “a great experience” but notes that it “took a toll on my soul. I’m thankful not to have fake fights anymore!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are easily one of the most hated celebrity couples ever, right? Radaronline polled a whole mess of people and compiled a list of 14 celebrity couples that people absolutely hate and Kim and Kanye didn’t even make the list! Shocker! These lists are based on pretty much nothing, but they’re so fun; from the most hated celebrities to the ugliest male celebs, I know I like a good stupid list.
I don’t think these are actually in a particular order, in terms of most to least. The first ones on the list are Rihanna and Chris Brown. Who are the rest?Click to find out.

Hey, remember when everybody thought the world was going to end on December 21st, 2012? And some people really thought the world was going to end, and they focused their whole lives on getting ready for it? You should remember that, it wasn’t that long ago. Oh, and there was an episode of Wife Swap about it (not that you should, but if you wanted to, the episode might be on YouTube and it might be TOTALLY WORTH IT). Come on, you guys totally remember this.
Here’s what Spencer himself had to say about his behavior in the months and years leading up to December 21st:
“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.
“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 love how he said that they “heard the planet was going to end.” It seemed like most people who thought the world was going to end were a lot more adamant about it, you know? Like “the world is ending, prepare for the end times, this is definitely, 100% for sure happening!” But Spencer and Heidi just heard about it somewhere, I guess. It must have sounded pretty legit to them.
But guys, please heed Spencer’s advice and do not spend your money thinking asteroids are coming. If you can take one thing away from this whole story, please let it be that.

Whew, time sure does fly, folks. Can you believe that it’s been three whole months since we last posted about Heidi Montag, and an entire four months since Spencer was mentioned on the site? That’s like a lifetime in Hollywood. That’s, like, an amount of time that can pass and people will plum FORGET about you.
… Can we do that again, please?

Whoooaaaaa! Did you feel that? That was the Earth settling contentedly on its axis, as all the Cosmos shrug: Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are flat broke. Or at least, that’s what the couple reports in a piteous new interview.
But perhaps they are also a little older, a little wiser? Hmm.
Spencer illuminates how the couple blew their meager fortune:
My whole million-dollar wardrobe—I would never wear that again. They’re props. Everything we were doing, we were buying props. I bought a big blue monster truck just to drive it on The Hills for an episode. Never drove it again.
Yep. And by the way, said truck was sold last month, to the tune of… $5,500. Oh, boy. Now the couple is living rent-free in Spencer’s parents’ vacation house.
Heidi, duly wistful about her plastic surgeries:
Obviously I wish I didn’t do it. I would go back and not have any surgery. It doesn’t help. I got too caught up in Hollywood, being so into myself and my image. I don’t regret anything, but if I could go back, I wouldn’t do it.
Spencer, on the couple’s foolhardy pursuit of fame:
Everything we were doing, in retrospect, was a mistake. The second we continued on our quest for fame was a mistake. This isn’t a business. That was the big thing I didn’t get: Reality TV is not a career. Anyone who says, ‘Oh, you can have a career in reality’—that is a lie.
Ah, hubris! Thy name is Spencer:
What we learned is: You can be too famous.
NO, SPENCER, THAT IS THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT—oh, never mind. Sigh.
