Heidi and Spencer working with Mattel on their own Ken and Barbie dolls

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt will become immortalized in plastic when Mattel produces Barbie and Ken versions of The Hills villains/entertainers/”improv TV personalities.”

“We just talked to Mattel yesterday, and we are already working on our own Ken and Barbie,” Spencer told Socialite Life. Heidi said, “I’m waiting for my Barbie Doll. That’s what I want next.” As to its styling and clothing, Heidi said, “I haven’t really thought about it that much, but I’m really excited,” she said.

Millionaires Heidi and Spencer already appear as characters in the boxing video game Facebreaker, so it makes sense that fans will be able to buy little effigies of Heidi and Spencer to, say, slam in car doors or pop in the blender for a little spin.
