“Obviously we’re entertainers. We are trying to entertain in every aspect of our lives. Whether it’s on the show or in the tabloids.”
Spencer explains that he started dating Heidi behind the scenes after Season 1 of The Hills because he felt that the show needed some “evil.” Whether he was with her initially because she was on TV or not, he claims to be fully in love with her manufactured personality and body.
“I was — and am — so in love with Heidi, and that stuff stops mattering. Our real world is right here,” he said, gesturing at the space between them. I might vomit. I need to breathe deeply and through my nose slowly.
Spencer says he and Heidi are fully aware as to how the media works, and are merely feeding the voracious beast that is the mainstream media, the tabloids, and the blogs. Thanks for the snack, Spence!
“Every hour,” he said. “Every different magazine, every blog texts, like, ‘We heard this, we heard this.’ Most of the time, people are just making things up, trying to get you to give a source quote. Or give one line just so they can build something. On every site, in every magazine, they need content. It’s the most competitive industry in the world, I would say, the pop culture media game.”
Spencer probaby said all this while Heidi watched the carbonation in her glass of soda. We know who’s running that show.
