"The Hills" Cast -- Then & Now

Leave it to Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag to say some pretty outrageous things.

The former reality star couple get extremely candid about their lives during and after "The Hills" in a new interview with Vice's Broadly, and they drop tons of crazy revelations about their days on the MTV series.

After the show was canceled in 2010, the couple found themselves in a financial crisis, which Pratt compared to the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history.

"[The Hills getting canceled] was our 9/11," Spencer said of their money problems.

The reality star says that, during his days on the show, he developed a plan to get Heidi more camera time which he called "Operation Upstage" or "Upstage LC". He even went as far as calling paparazzi on the lifestyle guru. Spencer maintains that he never intended to hurt Conrad's feelings, but he was only trying to help her and the show.

"Lauren had never been in a tabloid until I started calling the paparazzi on her, for her," he says. "[Lauren] is from Laguna Beach. I'm coming from L.A. All my friends' parents are producers and directors. I see the bigger vision of making content."

"She was like, 'It's my show, my world!'" Heidi adds. "She didn't like someone coming in and changing up the formula because it was her world and she wanted it to stay that way."

Despite the former besties' well documented falling out, the 28-year-old says she still has "such a soft part in my heart for Lauren."

"I love the time that we had together," Heidi admits. "I really do appreciate everything that she did for me. I wish that it had turned out differently."

As the year's went on, the couple continued to capitalize on their fame, referring to themselves as "fame whores" and saying that they made $1 million plus a year in photos.


The married duo claims they were so innovative that another famous reality TV couple, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, modeled their relationship on Speidi. According to Heidi, the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star asked her sister, Holly Montag, for advice!

"She asked, 'What do Heidi and Spencer do? I need [to know] all the exact things, because we're doing exactly what they do,'" Heidi says. "What you don't realize is that when you fake fight, you make people hate you. It's not fun."

But those weren't the only crazy revelations from the Heidi and Spencer. Head over to Broadly to read the entire interview!
