Christmas has come early! Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are BACK, but a seemingly more humbled version of their once-egomaniacal selves. Last night, E! aired the special, “Heidi & Spencer: After Shock” (trailer above), which tells the Speidi story in the couple’s own words, including where they’ve been since they fell off the radar a couple years ago. In short, the producers of “The Hills,” which made the couple famous, convinced them to act like total dickweeds, then the fame went to their heads, they spent all of their money, tried everything to get it back, and have now realized none of it was worth it. Away from the limelight, they have realized what’s important — and that is setting the record straight by doing a special on E! and trying to improve their public image so Spencer will give Heidi a baby.

Remember little crystal monster Spencer Pratt? The “Hills” villain and his equally irrelevant wife, Heidi Montag, have faded away into obscurity, after trying so very hard to build reality TV careers. The couple is celebrating Pratt’s b-day on August 31 as any loving couple would: With a sponsored birthday party at Crazy Horse Gentleman’s Club in Las Vegas (a strip club so classy they offer a number to call for free limo rides). But in anticipation of the big day, Heidi made a very special birthday cake for Spencer, featuring some of Spencer’s favorite things. They are, in no particular order: “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” Cool Dude Sun, soccer balls, Nintendo controllers, puppies, LEGOs, karate-chopping palm trees, and girls with big boobs. So basically, Spencer Pratt is a 12-year-old who’s really into toys. Congratulations on your husband, Heidi. [Heidi Montag]
Remember Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, the hydra-headed beast that terrorized Lauren Conrad, Brody Jenner and America during the mid-oughts via their appearances on “The Hills” and “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here”? Well, guess what? Despite going broke after spending all their money on crystals, plastic surgery and pre-Mayan Apocalypse tomfoolery (really), these two jackals are back. With guns. The now-bankrupt pair say that they keep guns in their California home in order to protect themselves from crazy fans that may break in. Which, HAHA, Speidi fans. The pair were recently featured in a UK documentary, appropriately titled “Speidi: Scandal, Secrets And Surgery,” where they bragged about their well-stocked gun room.
“I didn’t feel safe especially with crazed fans and stalkers out there but if somebody broke into our home, this is the only thing that could actually save my life,” said Heidi, while Spencer boasted that though England was an “amazing country,” his gun arsenal was proof of “the amazing laws in America.”
The pair are set to appear on a second season of the UK’s “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here,” because the British have apparently not reached their Speidi quota. Okay, what’s going on over in England? [Daily Mail UK]
“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. 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.”
– Sometimes I go multiple days — even weeks — forgetting that Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag ever existed. And then a quote like this — from Spencer, speaking on behalf of himself and his wife — comes along to remind me, and I both rejoice in the knowledge that such ridiculous people exist to entertain me, and weep that they got paid such astronomical amounts of money to do so. First of all, I’m slightly suspicious that this whole “wah, wah, we spent our money because we thought the world was ending, now we’re broke” story is just another ploy for attention. The thing is, they really are broke, so no matter the reason, they did manage to blow through a crapload of money in a very, very short time. What I don’t get is, why do you need to spend all the money before the asteroid hits? I mean, wouldn’t the cash have just burned along with humanity? I just don’t get the sense that they were spending money wildly and enjoying themselves; it’s like they thought any money left over would, like, bit them in the afterlife. Regardless, I never expected Spencer and Heidi to be so charitable. I would really like to hear from one of the people who was gifted a car. Maybe “Access Hollywood” could track down one of these lucky valets now rolling in “hundred pounds” of tips? Anything to make this story, just like the world, never end.

I can’t quite tell you why, but I was pretty darn addicted to MTV’s “Laguna Beach” and “The Hills,” and, to a lesser degree, “The City.” Nothing ever actually happened on these shows and the conversations and “characters” were basically the opposite of fascinating, but maybe it was their incredible blandness that made it hard to turn away. I think I am going overboard trying to justify this particular habit — I just like TV that temporarily lobotomizes me. Artist Karin Bubas is probably on my wavelength, because she’s created these portraits of “The Hills” stars at their most, um, poignant. I kind of dig the soft focus glow of them — they remind me of the ’80s Sweet Valley High book covers. I’m not saying I’m planning on buying one, but if someone gave me the drawing of Lauren with the single mascara-tainted tear stain on her cheek, I would make a space on my wall for it.
