When we last left Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, they were probably doing … something. I don’t know. It probably involved the two of them lying in order to remain tethered to last fading tatters of their relevance, which I’m not going to lie, has sort of become a running theme with most of the people we make fun of here. Anyway, they somehow managed to land an interview with The Daily Beast, where they pretty much openly admit that everything they’ve said for the past few years have been nothing but lies meant to make people know who they were. Oh, and they’re still broke as fuck, so HAHAHAHAHA.
“We were all getting paid to be people we weren’t for so long that you stop—there’s no line,” Spencer said. “The gauge is gone. The gray area is gone.” He continued. “We got so deep with how many storylines we had to do to continue the machine.” “So what was one more fake breakup?” Heidi asked rhetorically. “At that point, we were pulling our last cards,” Spencer said. “We felt the hot-air balloon losing its gas. And at that stage, our income would be selling the photo that would go along with the divorce.” (But their once-lucrative side business was yielding around $300 per photo in 2010, rather than the $3,000 they used to get.)

So basically, MTV has built an entire network around glorifying the absolute worst aspects of society, and these two were a-okay with it as long as they had the money coming in, is that what you’re saying? Because I was confused there for a second. I kind of figured the point of commerce is that people were supposed to help each other out in exchange for monetary reward, and instead they’re just grabbing the most morally void and attention desperate people and paying them to be the absolute worst people they can possibly be. Well, good to know I guess.
