How can Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt be flat broke? The reality television-made celebrities used to live 'high on the hog,' buying all sorts of expensive things such as cars, clothes, and plastic surgery. Now at least some are reporting that the two are one-step from collecting a welfare check.
They used to be attention whores. There was Montag, her plastic surgery and a failed recording career. Money wasted on fame in front of the cameras. Now they cannot even get on television. Heidi is the spokes model for "plastic surgery gone wrong." They are victims of their own success.
They spent, spent, spent and now they are out of money. They are lucky they are not homeless at this point. Spencer sums it up best
We were getting paid to be people we weren't for so long that there's no line. What we learned is, you can be too famous.
The Hills stars lived beyond their means...now will they have end up using food stamps at the local Safeway to buy their Ramen Noodles? Now that is the life for Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt. At least the view is good from the beach.
