Heidi and Spencer made $3 million in two years; MTV denies Hills spin-off

The Hills stars Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag have collectively made $3 million over the past two years just for living their fake lives–or, as Heidi and Spencer said recently, for being “entertainers” and “improv TV personalities.”

“Since coupling up on The Hills two years ago, the pair have raked in about $3 million from their TV salaries, club appearances, photo shoots and business deals,” In Touch Weekly reports.

If that wasn’t annoying enough, Heidi and Spencer promise to not go away any time soon. “I plan to win an Oscar. I’m very ambitious,” Heidi said, apparently having not yet reviewed footage of her own painful acting. And Spencer said he has even greater ambitions. “My hustle is just too crazy. I’m trying to take over the world!”

Meanwhile, Us Weekly reported that “that MTV is prepping a show in which Whitney Port, 23, becomes bicoastal while working for fashion PR firm People’s Revolution — and befriends a group of NYC gals (including socialite Olivia Palermo).” Olivia’s representative told The New York Observer that she “is not involved” but said “I am aware of the spin-off.”

But the spin-off isn’t happening, according to MTV. The network’s own Remote Control blog notes that Whitney recently talked about enjoying her privacy, and says “the whole thing sounds kinda farfetched, but it’s all over the internet so it must be true… right? … Come on people, if you’re going to invent a spinoff rumor, at least show a little creativity!”
