I spent years pretending to like her for a living. It was literally my job to deal with her, and it wasn’t pleasant… I had nothing to do with her problems. I even tried to help her. The fact is, she lied about me and tried to destroy my life, yet I was the one painted as the villain so the show could have her as the good guy.”
And here I was thinking Heidi and husband Spencer Pratt were proud to be the villains!
It turns out Heidi doesn’t exactly appreciate that perception.
It’s not that I care about [LC] anymore, but it is upsetting to me that everyone knows by now that The Hills was a scripted show, yet people still think the negative stuff about me that the show set up to make me the villain to her hero was real. It’s bizarre. It’s like if people were still mad at James Earl Jones for being the voice of Darth Vader!”
Although I think, on some level, we know that reality TV isn’t truly “reality,” we still treat it that way.
Spencer, however, was even more blunt about Lauren in an interview:
Lauren is a cold-hearted killer. That’s what people don’t get. She will cut you in your sleep. She tried to destroy us. If you want to throw missiles, I’m throwing a nuke. This is how I operate.”
Heidi is a bit more gentle in her attitudes towards her former co-star, explaining:
I don’t wish her any ill will, but I also don’t have to lie for her or play along with her story line as part of my job anymore. I was pretending to be someone I wasn’t for those years I was on the show and I think people got an image of me that just wasn’t me. So I’ve just decided that I’m never going to be anything other than honest about her or my time on the show.”
Are you ready to see how Speidi’s doing today? We might get the chance: these pictures were taken last July, when Heidi and Spencer were filming a new reality TV show. These interviews might be an effort to generate some interest in it. I have to say, I NEVER thought those two would still be married after seven years. Villains or not, something must be real about their relationship!
