Surprise! The divorce was a sham.
Reality TV stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt will stop at nothing to stay in the spotlight.
The couple, who is set to file for bankruptcy after blowing $10 million on their extravagant lifestyle, have admitted their recent divorce was just a scam to land a new show.
They hatched the plan after learning The Hills would not be picked up for another season and Pratt admits the divorce was designed to generate interest in his wife for a potential British TV show.
Speidi told Life & Style that British TV network ITV expressed an interest in filming a series covering their split. They flew to Costa Rica to negotiate a deal, which fell through. So, Heidi and Spencer called off the divorce and reunited.
Pratt says, “The divorce was real – just the idea behind it was different than most people’s. Divorcing was the only way to keep Heidi’s career going because everyone hated me so much. Look at Sandra Bullock – her divorce from Jesse James was the best thing to happen to her image.”
Facing bankruptcy and having been forced to move in with his parents, Pratt admits that he is worried about the future, “I can’t make regular money because I was playing such an unlikeable character on TV to keep my checks coming. Who wants to hire the jerk from The Hills?”
