Twelve. That's the number of posts we dedicated to covering Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag's so-called divorce back in the summer of 2010. Multiply that number by 200 words, which is the average length of a Remote Control story, and that's 2,400 words wasted on the couple's hoax.
Sure, at the time of their announcement, we all had an inkling that Speidi were just making a (rather successful) play for some big publicity, but the former "Hills" schemers are finally confirming their shameful deception to the world. Spencer told the Daily Beast, "At that stage, our income would be selling the photo that would go along with the divorce."
If this were a few years ago, before the economic downturn hit and writers were making up to 2 dollars a word, our blogger brethren out there could have potentially banked $4,800 on this whole damn scam, so no hard feelings, guys. Too bad you didn't put your heads together a lot sooner.
