Spencer Pratt says he gets $100,000 “minimum” for appearances; Letterman calls him a “dope”
Spencer Pratt appeared on David Letterman’s show Friday night for some reason, perhaps because it was the 13th and he’s a pop culture demon. The results were very entertaining, because despite being a self-professed “improv TV personality,” Spencer basically sat there like a lump the whole time.
It was also horrifying, because Spencer claimed he receives “minimum $100,000” to appear at a club. “Seriously, I won’t got a club now for less than $100,000,” he said. Letterman wasn’t buying it. “Nobody is giving you 100,000 to leave the house, really,” he said. “You’d be shocked,” Spencer said.
When Letterman talked to Heidi, who was relegated to the green room, she said, “I thought he was lowballing it.” Letterman said, “Oh stop it. What does he bring a pony and kids have their pictures taken on it?”
As the interview started, Letterman said to Spencer, “On the show, you’re a dope,” and asked him if that was accurate. He relentlessly mocked Spencer, who tried to be somewhat witty but didn’t really succeed, and he let most of Letterman’s barbs stick in him. For example, Letterman said, mockingly, “you’re a show business visionary, then.” Spencer replied, “I try to be.” Brilliant improv, man.
