Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt aren't about to let Lauren Conrad tell her side of their ongoing feud without retaliating with a vengeance.
After a weekend website posting by Pratt, followed by bitter comments from Heidi Montag Monday in an interview with Philadelphia's Q102, the duo were back on attack this week as guests on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show in L.A.
Asked how they felt about last week's story in Us Weekly, in which Lauren Conrad and her fellow cast members paint reality TV's most talked-about couple as a pair of pathetic backstabbers who "use" people for attention, Montag retorted:
"We didn't start it... I was shocked when I read that. We were living our lives, doing our own things. Lauren is the last thing on my mind ... and then this comes out?"
Spencer, who is looking more and more like an acne-riddled, blonde Ken Doll every day, took the opportunity to further expand on this, telling Ryan Seacrest:
"All we've been worrying about is Heidi's music... we were totally at peace with LC... all of a sudden, my grandma calls me almost crying, 'Go get Us Magazine Spencer, it's terrible.' It's six pages of just hating on us."
T.H. GOSSIP NOTE: Something about the image Spencer Pratt getting a tearful phone call from his grandmother strikes us as laughable... or a complete lie.
Never mind the fact that Us Weekly will print and make a huge frickin' deal out of everything Spencer Pratt says or does, giving him the publicity he craves so hard. Not that we don't. But it's like he's biting the hand that feeds his (D-list) celebrity. So to speak.
After dishing on the drama, the always media conscious Montag and Pratt had to remind listeners: it's all going to play out when Season 3 of The Hills premieres Monday.
