Years before any Miley Cyrus Twerking or Farrah Abraham porn, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt of The Hills were the talk of the celebrity gossip world.
From Heidi Montag's 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day to Spencer Pratt's crystal worshipping, the pair always aimed to shock and surprise.
The couple made headlines this week by unveiling a new show they've dubbed SpeidiShow, which they've called an attempt to reinvent reality TV.
Just one problem (or godsend): The show doesn't actually exist.
"SpeidiShow is just as real as [people's] image of us," Spencer Pratt said of his latest hoax. "People have tried little Twitter tricks, but this is bigger."
"It's a whole interactive world - the show, the backstory, the on and offscreen drama, made out of a a huge online collaborative improv game."
The one-time super-couple of MTV relies heavily on social media interaction and their pseudo-show's webpage to garner interest in the faux project.
Tons of fans have already told the stars that they love the show, despite the fact that it doesn't exist, which means they may want to rethink their lives.
They say the prank is validation for years of public criticism.
"For years, we have been stuck playing the characters they wrote for us on The Hills," Heidi Montag said. "Now fans can help us create new versions of Speidi."
"If you get hung up asking is the show real or not, don't bother playing," Pratt adds, if you're still confused. "It's as real as we collectively say it is."
Good to know Speidi. And good show, as always.
