Most girls shudder at the thought of having their every move, smile and outfit critiqued by catty onlookers. But for Heidi Pratt, it's pretty much an everyday occurrence. So how does she cope? Simple: she reminds herself that, in a weird way, all that backbiting and attention is actually sorta flattering. Oh, and she's got a message for all you haters out there: BRING IT ON!
"[I]t's so much fun that people know who I am and actually care enough to talk," Heidi admits in the September issue of Playboy. "If women aren't jealous of you, talking about you and cutting you down, then you're a nerd, and I would never want to be that."
And since nothin' gets people talking like having your picture taken wearing only a french manicure and a smile, Heidi's starting up more controversy with that sizzlin' Playboy spread (out today!). Check out the naughty shots one more time, plus get more highlights from Heidi's Playboy interview, after the jump.
As we told you before, Heidi was interviewed for Playboy by none other than her hubby, Spencer Pratt. And -- in addition to rehashing Lauren Conrad's past -- they had a whole lot to say about reality TV, love and, yes, s-e-x. Here are a few of Heidi's best quotes:
On what her relationship with Spencer is like off-camera:
"That's the thing. I have cameras on me 24/7, and I love it ... I laugh so hard when I read 'Oh, they're the fakest couple on the planet' ... We've been together more than three years and have spent practically every minute together. If we were fake, that would have been exposed by now, don't you think?"
On her fondest Hills memories: (And yes, she's talking to Spencer!)
"Well, your proposing to me was obviously a personal favorite. Oh, and the one when I first met you and you were saying you wanted to go on naked picnics and marry this other girl ...That's funny to look at now."
On why she pulled the I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! card:
"The huge spiders, the rats, the smell ... You're given only a small amount of beans and rice, and you wash your dishes in dirty creek water. If it weren't for you [Spencer] --and Jesus -- I wouldn't have made it through alive."
On whether or not there's a Speidi sex tape in the works:
"No way. I've never watched porn in my life. I'm not going to start making it. ... [But] I feel sorry for couples who aren't as sexually satisfied as we are. If your sex life isn't happy, your marriage is screwed."
