Have I mentioned how much I adore the WWK intern team? This item is a stellar example of their unparalleled enthusiasm and undying dedication. Yes, upon hearing from a coworker that the infamous Hollywood Hills duo Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt were in the area last week, go-getter Michael Berner raced to their reported location and arrived on the scene just in time to do some light stalking. Lucky for him, these two are so not afraid of a little press...
I’ve seen the trailer for the third season of The Hills. Clearly, you’ll be appearing on the show, despite your strained relationship with [star] Lauren [Conrad]. But the fans still want to know if there will be two separate storylines—one yours and one hers.
Spencer Pratt: We have nothing to do with the editing. It’s a surprise for us as much as the audience.
Heidi Montag: More for us.
There’s a lot of debate about whether or not the show is scripted.
H.M.: There are storylines…
S.P.: There are story editors. It’s that simple. Look in the credits—there are story editors.
Are you frustrated with the way you’ve been depicted?
H.M.: It’s a 22-minute show about seven people. It doesn’t really capture the essence of who you are. It’s not like reality TV is the place to portray yourself.
S.P.: Especially when Lauren, your supposed nemesis, is the narrator, and it’s her show. It’s a very difficult situation. But I wasn’t surprised, because once you go against L.C., the star of the show, you’re bound not to [come off] looking good, because she’s their honeybee. You have no chance. Thing is, I wasn’t Heidi’s boyfriend when they put that boyfriend connotation on my name. I was very single, she was single. They just didn’t show her going out on her dates.
When you see yourself portrayed in a negative way, do you take it with a grain of salt?
H.M.: Yeah, you can’t take it too seriously. It’s the entertainment business. We’re here to entertain people, and we get that.
You were in a fashion show over the weekend and are planning on getting into the Industry. Will that play a role in this Hills season?
H.M.: No, The Hills doesn’t follow any of that. We have our own lives, and then they film whatever.
Anything you can tease to in general?
S.P.: Heidi’s music career…
H.M.: Yeah, my music is pretty much it.
S.P.: We’re working with David Foster on a pop album.
There have been rumors of a Newlyweds spinoff show. Are you interested in making one?
S.P.: We like to keep all of our options open.
H.M.: We’re just trying to explore.
Is MTV talking to you at all?
H.M.: No...no comment really.
For more scoop on the upcoming season of The Hills, read up on Hollywood Party Girl's day at the beach—or should I say, on the set—with the stars. A little dirt? L.C. was hanging with Audrina Patridge and Spencer's friend Brody Jenner. But Heidi and Spence were nowhere to be seen—and word is, they weren't welcome.
