Speidi Are Splitting Up…For ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’

The 'Hills' couple live in wedded bliss, but how will they fare with other partners?

Though the “Hills” cast never quite understood Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt’s wacky love connection (take a look back at Season 6 to hear some smacktalk about the relationship), the couple has always been sure of their bond, and many years after their first date, they’re still going strong. But that’s all about to change, because in two weeks, Speidi are officially splitting up…

…for “Celebrity Wife Swap,” that is! On the ABC show’s next episode, the husband and wife will switch partners with swimmer and Olympic gold medalist Amanda Beard and her husband, Sacha Brown. For one week, Heidi and Amanda will live in the other’s home, and judging by a preview that aired at the end of last night’s episode — some of which Spencer posted as an Instagram video — Amanda won’t be too keen on her new roomie’s apparent laziness. Still, she’s excited to see how the experience plays out. “It’s going to be amazing to watch,” the athlete tweeted. Here’s hoping she brought some crystals to calm the beast…

“Wife Swap” isn’t the first time Spence and Heids have taken to non-“Hills” reality TV. In 2009, they traveled to the jungles of Costa Rica for the second season of “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me out of Here” to compete for a cash prize that would be donated to charity. Sadly, though, they didn’t quite get along with their fellow competitors — particularly the funny ladies of Frangela — and eventually dropped out after a bit of a meltdown.

Then, in 2013, they tried their luck as part of the eleventh season of the UK’s “Celebrity Big Brother,” and though they fought hard, they just missed first place, and came back to American soil as runners-up.
