Heidi & Spencer Admit Faking Divorce, File Bankruptcy

By: The Superficial / November 4, 2010

Seen here with Heidi, who apparently changed outfits throughout the evening, Spencer Pratt admits to Life & Style that their divorce was faked to land a reality show that fell through, leaving the couple with no choice but to file for bankruptcy. *dabs eyes with tissues* I promised myself I wouldn’t do this…:

After they found out The Hills would not be renewed earlier this year, Heidi and Spencer concocted a plan to get attention by divorcing shortly after their anniversary. The reality duo tell Life & Style there was interest in a series covering their split from British TV network ITV, so they splashed down cash to move their act to Costa Rica. But that deal fell through and soon after, they called off the divorce proceedings and reunited.
“The divorce was real — just the idea behind it was different than most people’s,” Spencer tells Life & Style. “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.”
Now, they worry how they’ll ever get themselves out of the cash crisis. “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?”

Good question except now who’s going to hire an unlikeable, supposedly Christian asshole who consistently makes shit up hoping some rubes will believe it?

Oh, right.
