When it comes to reality television couples, very few were as well known – and openly disliked – as Speidi.
Transitioning from a small-town all-American girl, Heidi Montag was as seduced by the bright lights of Hollywood as she was the party-boys who lived it up there, and it wasn't long before she met and married wannabe playboy Spencer Pratt.
Speidi was born, and sales in crystals went through the roof.
At the time, the couple appeared unfazed by the negativity commentary which surrounded them, and happily played up to their superficial reality star image.
But it seems like it's taken the best part of a decade for the couple to realise that their time in the spotlight was limited, meaning their extravagant lifestyle and over-the-top spending would have to come to an end eventually.
"We should have stayed in our reality TV lane," Spencer told PEOPLE magazine. "We were keeping up with the Joneses, but we were going against Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes."
"I felt like I was someone I wasn't," Heidi admitted. "We had business managers who told us to stop spending but we acted like we knew what we were doing."
Despite cashing multiple six-figure cheques for their role in The Hills, and raking in millions for various other appearances and endorsements, the couple managed to squander the lot.
From designer clothes and security staff to crystals and €3,000 bottles of wine, Speidi spent like there was no tomorrow, and are only now realising the impact their choices had on future plans.
"Everyone else on our cast had houses and we had nothing to show for what we'd done," Heidi explained. "I was like, the haters were right! It was sad."
Damn those haters and their logic…
