A Different Side To Heidi & Spencer

I just came across this. The interview was originally published in TeamSugar on April 12, 2007, when the sex-tape rumors about Lauren were 1st going around. I don't know if many people have seen this, but it certainely paints a different picture of Spencer and Heidi. The highlighted part made me think again.

For months, I have written some not so nice things about The Hills star, Spencer Pratt. In fact, should you choose to Google his name, this very site is the number two search result (it was number one prior to the interview, but Radar beat me since… damn) and it’s not because I’ve been repeatedly singing his praises. But I decided to put my preconceived notions behind me and see if I could wrangle an interview with Spencer himself. And I did. I had the pleasure of not only speaking with Spencer, but chatting with Heidi as well. That’s right- I said pleasure. They were both gracious, fun and very eager to tell their side of the story.
We chatted casually about their life together, Heidi’s friendship with Lauren Conrad and what you didn’t see on The Hills.
MTV Reality World: People have pretty strong opinions and perceptions about the way you are both portrayed on TV. How accurate do you think that portrayal is and what do you think is the biggest misconception that viewers have?
Heidi: People don’t know every side. It’s a reality show of several people’s lives. It’s accurate of who we are, but sometimes the situations can be misconstrued. It is 20 minute edited drama. They can’t show everything.
Spencer: Heidi and I had just started hanging out when the show started taping and we really liked each other, but suddenly I was considered her boyfriend. We were flirting all the time, following the rules of being single. We were both seeing other people at the same time. We were both players- she was playing the game with me. Heidi has game! She changed her phone number on me 3 times during the show. Reality TV doesn’t follow us 24 hours a day. It’s in pieces that they put together to make a show. The bottom line is I was not doing that stuff to my girlfriend. We were seeing each other and other people.
Heidi: One of the first nights I saw him at Area he came with Audrina and I hadn’t talked to her all summer. I was so mad that she showed up with him. I really liked him that summer…
Spencer: I did show up with Audrina because Heidi changed her phone number on me!
Heidi: When we talk about being players, we mean we’re light and fun and we don’t get mad about not texting each other back and things like that. We like funny shenanigans. In the beginnings of everyone relationship, there’s a lot of kinks. We just happened to go through it on camera with a lot of that being shown. Everyone calls us a married couple because we are always together.
MTV Reality World: What did MTV edit out of the show that you wish everyone had seen?
Heidi: I wish they would have shown more of how Spencer and I are together. We’re fun. We laugh all the time. We’re always doing things together. We don’t fight a lot. We have our ups and downs like every couple, but most of all, our relationship is close to perfect.
MTV Reality World: Heidi, where do you and Lauren stand today? Still friends?
Heidi: Lauren and I are friends, we just don’t see each other a lot. We both have separate lives, me living with Spencer and her living with Audrina. We’re both trying to work on our friendship.
MTV Reality World: What is the status with you and Audrina? Still friends?
Heidi: I really like Audrina. She’s better friends with Lauren since they live together. I really love Whitney. I love all the girls. Whitney and I hang out sometimes because our boyfriends are friends.
MTV Reality World: The big question – is The Hills coming back for season 3 and, if so, what can we look forward to seeing?
Heidi: We are doing a season 3 and it will show Spencer and I living together - the things that couples go through right when they first move in. They go through fights – the toilet seat being left up and stuff like that. It will show all of the girls at our jobs. It’s going to show me working on my album with David Foster too.
MTV Reality World: Heidi, tell me more about your upcoming album.
Heidi: I’m working with David Foster with 143 Records under Warner. The album will be out hopefully in September. It’s very pop - hot, fun fresh, young, and sexy. It’s gonna be a lot of entertainment – a lot of dancing similar to the Pussycat Dolls and Britney Spears.
MTV Reality World: Spencer, I take you to be a wheeling and dealing kind of guy. What projects do you have in the works?
Spencer: My new plan to keep everything secret like a ninja. Too many ideas are taken from me. I wouldn’t even know where to start with that one. My hustle is just too crazy. I’m trying to take over the world.
MTV Reality World: Let’s talk about your relationship. We all have a very skewed idea of what life is like for you both. How are you like every other couple in America and how are you different? What does an average day consist of for you guys?
Heidi: I love talking about this! We’re getting ready right now to get into our new apartment. I think we’re better than the average couple in America - our brains work the same way. We like to be happy have fun. I never knew I could be so in love or so happy. I never knew… We have so much fun together. We’re inseparable. We’re always laughing and having a good time.
MTV Reality World: What’s in the future for you guys?
Heidi: I’m never letting this one go!
Spencer: The bottom line about me wanting to move in with her is that I haven’t left this girl’s side since I met her. I’m obsessed with her. Everyone says I can’t get into the clubs anymore, but the truth is I don’t go to clubs anymore because I like to cuddle up in bed with my girlfriend with some DVDs.
Heidi: I wouldn’t want to go to clubs anymore. I have so much more fun watching DVDs with Spencer and cuddling.
MTV Reality World: I understand you have some blogs coming out. What can we look forward to seeing there?
Spencer: Well, I want to start to have our side of the story come out. I want to get a blog so people can know what’s going on with Spencer on the daily. Lauren narrates The Hills. Spencer is going to narrate his blog. Imagine if Spencer narrated The Hills… It’s how you skew it. If I’m the narrator, wait to see how much people love Spencer.
MTV Reality World: How has the show changed your lives?
Heidi: People recognize us when we go out.
Spencer: They notice us for being in love… I’ve never been this in love in my whole life. Heidi is the sexiest girl I’ve ever met. I wouldn’t leave Heidi for those Playboy bunnies. I wouldn’t leave Heidi for the Playboy mansion!
MTV Reality World: Ok, I’m going to get personal for a minute… Heidi, there are rumors all over the internet that you had a breast augmentation last week. Do you want to comment on that?
Heidi: No comment.
MTV Reality World: This week, the latest rumor on the web is that Lauren and Jason filmed a sex tape that Jason was trying to sell. Is there anything that you guys want to say about that?
Spencer: We heard the tape does not exist and we’re here for Lauren and we feel bad that these rumors are going on.
MTV Reality World: Ok, I’m opening up the floor. Here’s your chance to say whatever you want to the fans.
Spencer: People need to realize that you can’t judge someone just from what you see on TV.
Heidi: People need to realize that we’re in the entertainment industry, period.
MTV Reality World: Anything else?
Spencer: I think we should end it with Heidi is the cutest girl in the world. The end.
