Even though The Hills is over, Spencer Pratt is still a thing people want us to pay attention to. Specifically, Spencer Pratt is a thing Spencer Pratt wants us to pay attention to. And he's demanding attention by dressing up as an old man (way better when Barney Stinson did it) and proclaiming that his split from wife Heidi is just a publicity stunt. "We love each other but I'm a fame whore and I'll never grow out of it," Spencer said to People magazine. "[Heidi] knows that and doesn't want that." Really. And she just wants those size H implants because her name starts with an H, hmm? As for Spencer never growing out of his fameballing ways, well, we've heard good things about ECT treatments.
Spencer is surprisingly candid in the People piece, saying that his "estrangement" from Heidi was caused by his lust for fame. "She thought I'd burn out of this, but no, I'm still the same Spencer who went on The Hills to be famous," he said, pretty much admitting right there that he only married her—and possibly manipulated her into those endless plastic surgeries—for fame and fortune. "I still need to do stunts and take cues from Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise." Well, the former explains the creepy flesh-colored beard, anyway. Spencer On Star F*cking

We understand that there is an inherent contradiction in bemoaning the fact that Spencer Pratt exists and writing about the fact that Spencer Pratt exists, thus validating his attention-grubbing existence, but, well, gossip writers gotta eat, too. And maybe his new pursuits—"I'm an artist now. I have an easel and everything. I'm going for an art show and a gallery," he James Franco-ed to People—will keep him from going on any other reality shows and making screaming monkey noises, or from abusing Al Roker on live television. Or maybe we'll never be rid of Spencer Pratt. He's like pop culture's herpes, appearing out of nowhere every now and then to ruin your weekend. Spencer Pratt: Most Guys Are Jerks
