Heidi says she's gotten into another huge fight with Spencer. After this big blowup, Heidi thinks it's time for her and Spencer to focus on their relationship instead of the wedding.

Lauren wants to know if there's another spot open, but Whitney tells her that Lisa Love nixed the idea. Noticeably bummed, Lauren says she never should have passed on the offer the first time around.

When his sister, Stephanie, joins him, he reveals that he walked out on yet another fight with Heidi. After spending time at home with his parents, it seems Spencer's finally figured out the obvious: he's an "idiot." Spencer hasn't talked to his supposed bride-to-be since the fight, and Stephanie says he should reach out to Heidi or else it's a big "adios" to their relationship.At Hillside Villas, Lauren tells Audrina that she missed out on another Paris trip. Although Audrina thinks she should have been asked to go, Lauren says that, since she said no the first time, they have no reason to offer it to her again.The next morning, Spencer makes his way to Bolthouse to try and sort things out with Heidi. But, when his girl is summoned, Kimberly arrives in her place. Heidi has apparently left early. After asking Kimberly to tell Heidi he stopped by, Spencer slinks away defeated.
