Heidi Montag And Spencer Pratt Are Broke
When they're not annoying us on a reality show, they're taking every opportunity they get to discuss their failures to every magazine outlets. What's going on in the lives of Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag this time around? The two have told Life & Style that they are broke broke broke.
Life & Style magazine quote the couple as saying they spent $10 million on items such as a Malibu home they rent for $35,000-per-month, Heidi's music career and cosmetic surgeries, cars, healing crystals and private jets, and that they owe about $2 million in taxes. The couple has not commented publicly.
"We were immature, worrying too much about the famous part instead of the actual business part," Life & Style quoted Pratt as saying. "In hindsight, we shouldn't have spent any of our money. We should have been low-key and saved. We spoke with a bankruptcy attorney and I've looked into unemployment checks."
The two often take lavish vacations, including a recent summer trip to Costa Rica during which they said they rekindled their romance. Montag, 24, filed for divorce from Pratt, a 27-year-old Los Angeles socialite and the self-proclaimed villain of The Hills, in July. She called it off in late September.
"If I had an agent in Hollywood that wanted to make money I wouldn't be broke," Pratt said on his Twitter page recently. "@MTV thanks for the job. In the market for another job please let me know if you need any reality stars. I am open to playing a 'Hero'."
The couple were apparently not prepared for the end of The Hills and since they thought their acting salary would be larger, they were spending uncontrollably.
"We thought The Hills was going to be like 90210 and we'd have another five to 10 years," Spencer said. "The ratings were consistent. But we never saw Jersey Shore coming. Before, TV audiences were fine with seeing us all argue, but now they want you to punch one another in the face and hook up with three different people. Our cast was a bit boring and snoozeworthy in comparison. No wonder we got canceled."
Jersey Shore, MTV's newest reality hit that just ended its second season, showcases the lives of party-loving self-proclaimed "Guidos and Guidettes" and has made stars such as Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino famous.
"We don't want sympathy," Pratt told tells Life & Style. "We did this to ourselves and feel like idiots. But we've grown up and are definitely not as naive anymore."
...we're just blabbing about our ridiculous lives to the mags still. Makes sense.
