About a month ago, we got whiplash trying to track the Speidi split. Stories were changing and growing on a daily basis, and it was hard to keep up. Unsure of what to believe (and report!), we cranked up our creativity and put together an outrageous list of totally false headlines. And while our attempt to stir the gossip pot was all in good fun, Spencer Pratt recently admitted to loving living for media attention (not exactly a shock), blaming his addiction to fame as the reason for his split with Heidi. According to People, even Spencer's latest treehugger beard and grungy style were devised to create buzz.
"I'm a famewhore, and I'll never grow out of it," Pratt told the site. "[Heidi] believes in bad press. There's no way my love for fame and her love for puppies will ever work out successfully. She just wants to hike and hang out and be calmer."
Many people continue to believe that the Speidi separation is just a publicity stunt, but we're pretty torn. Either way, Spencer's open admission to being a career-oriented guy who's simply hooked on garnering any type of spotlight is -- in a strange way -- a relief to read. At least he's self-aware! "I'm still the same Spencer who went on 'The Hills' to be famous," he shared with People.
