Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt want own show
Somewhere along the way, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt got the fool idea that people actually care about them (well, to be fair, we are writing about them, so we must think that, too). Either way, the New York Post's Page Six says the pervasive pair are trying to talk MTV into letting them ditch The Hills and get their own show.
Pratt and Montag were overheard at the Kobe Club in New York last week pitching the idea to MTV programming head Tony Di Santo.
"Spencer was saying, 'I want the world to see the real Heidi and Spencer,' and was emphasizing that the show would be just about them. No Lauren Conrad," a source told the tabloid. The focus? The couple's upcoming wedding, natch.
Pratt was "suggesting the show go through the whole lead-up to the wedding . . . finding a wedding planner, hunting for a dress designer, and all the drama that would be part of their wedding plans," the source said. "The show would be a mix of The Hills meets Newlyweds."
Yikes. We saw how well that plan worked for Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson. It's a good thing Heidi has successful music and fashion careers to fall back on. Except the critics are hating both. Maybe that's why a new TV show is so important.
