"The Hills" ended in 2010, and since then, it's pretty much downhill for Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag.
The two opened up in a tell-all interview with The Daily Beast, and admitted as much, claiming they were now living rent-free with Pratt's parents. They've seemingly blown all the cash they made from the show and are no longer living the high life the reality TV they were on purported to represent.
"[I] should have kept every dollar that I had," says Montag, who has invested thousands of dollars in multiple plastic surgeries over the years, and reportedly spent up to $2 million on her failed music career. "Obviously I wish I didn't do it. I would go back and not have any surgery. It doesn't help. I got too caught up in Hollywood, being so into myself and my image."
Montag says the reason why she went ahead with the surgical procedures was to raise her profile.
"I thought I was investing in myself and my brand, like Kim Kardashian," she says. "When she buys these clothes, she's investing in herself, because she is a big brand and is likable. I thought I had that potential. My ego got too big. To think I could be someone like that when I was the most hated girl ever."
Pratt has harsh words for the business of reality TV.
"This isn't a business," he says. "That was the big thing I didn't get: Reality TV is not a career. Anyone who says, 'Oh, you can have a career in reality' -- that is a lie."
