Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt Are Getting Paid

Who says this nation is undergoing an economic slowdown? Certainly not The HillsHeidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, who have raked in $3 million in the past two years for basically doing nothing except posing for pictures, according to In Touch Weekly.

The endlessly self-promotional couple has reaped a windfall via their TV salaries, club appearances, photo shoots and business deals, the magazine reports.

But $3 million is just the beginning, if these two go-getters have any say in it.

“I plan to win an Oscar,” gushes Montag, who’s yet to even come close to appearing in a movie. “I’m very ambitious.”

Spencer, meanwhile, is harboring ambitions to become the Colonel Tom Parker of the reality-TV generation by mentoring Montag’s singing career. “My hustle is just too crazy,” Pratt offers in a typical moment of humility. “I’m trying to take over the world!”

Hmmm, historically when someone makes world domination their goal, a world war ensues. Which actually might be preferable to hearing any more of Montag’s bikini-clad caterwauling.
