Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt have made their way across the pond, having exhausted their reach in American reality TV, and the pair have already managed to outrage fans of England’s Big Brother series, on which they recently appeared.
Montag & Pratt have ridden very high and very low in American reality TV, running through their high-coasting lifestyle and moving in with Spencer’s parents after the money ran out. Pratt now says that he and Montag played the villains in the UK hit but only to fulfill the roles with which they’d been tasked.
“They brought us in to be Speidi and stir it all up … I feel like a cartoon character. My talent for some odd reason is being an a**hole.”
He says going to that place isn’t easy, but he and Montag know how to manipulate the cameras and look devious. He explains:
“And it was so hard to … dig deep to even say a negative thing to be the bad guy.”
The former star of The Hills continues:
“It’s been very difficult for me to be awful but there’s got to be a bad guy. There’s got to be a baddie. I had to step up … People pay my bills. I can’t come all the way from America and play the good guy when that’s not what they cast me for.”
But there’s one glaring bit of the fameball cycle Montag & Pratt have been notably absent of. The pair have not overexposed any spawn to the reality show circuit and, despite the guaranteed payday a baby brings, don’t even have kids.
Heidi actually quite romantically says, despite her maternal longings, Spencer’s lack of interest in fatherhood overrides her desire for motherhood — aw:
”For me, having children is the greatest experience in life but Spencer doesn’t want them. My priority is my husband so now I choose our life instead of that experience.”
Actually really cool of you, Heidi. That’s a wife. And Pratt too shows some flexibility, adding that the pair may procreate after all:
‘I think we could well end up having children, and they could be born in Britain. When Heidi keeps saying to me, ‘Ooh, I love you’, it’s hard not to give in.”
But it seems Montag & Pratt have learned that money and fame can be transient, and Spencer is circumspect, adding:
”Right now with the economy in a state it’s not the best time. It’s a challenge for us to even have good dinners and a good life. My sister is still helping out my sister, who is 30 years old has kids. Things will be different when I can secure the future for us.”
Do you think Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt have matured since they hit it big?
