Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag shared the story of their rise and fall from fame in an E! special Monday, and there were some interesting revelations.

From 2006-2010, "Speidi" became household names, starring on MTV's The Hills as the villains to Lauren Conrad's nice girl on the Laguna Beach spinoff.

Now they're nearly broke, having blown through $10 million, they revealed on After Shock: Heidi & Spencer, although their marriage has stayed strong.

Spencer Pratt, 30, and Heidi Montag, 27, certainly have a story that's unique.

"I regret playing the villain so hard with not saving my money," he told E! "I would be laughing all the way to the bank being a hated multimillionaire right now."

Lauren Conrad is going from The Hills to the altar.

Oh yes, the former reality star is engaged!

Conrad made the exciting announcement herself today via blog, writing to fans: "I am very excited to share with you guys that William and I got engaged over the weekend."

"I am beyond thrilled!"

The Laguna Beach native, 27, included along with her message a pic of her diamond ring, which is anything but small (check it out after the jump).

Kristin Cavallari says The Hills was fake. Knock us over with a feather.

Her beef with Lauren Conrad, however, was at least partially legit. Kristin discussed her old reality show days last night on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.

Andy Cohen asked her if her "distaste" for her former Hills and Laguna Beach cast-mate was scripted, to which she laughed loudly and shouted, "No!"

Kristin Cavallari then clarified, "I do feel like [MTV producers] put things in our heads. I mean, we were 17 and 18. They made it a lot worse than it was."

Given their history, Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad may never be BFFs. But The Hills stars aren't exactly feuding, either. The two are "cool," Kristin says.

The two Laguna Beach beauties famously dated the same guy, Stephen Colletti, on the hit MTV reality show that spawned The Hills, which starred Conrad.

In a hilariously contrived move, Cavallari replaced LC as the protagonist and "narrator" of the series in 2009, when she decided to leave after five seasons.

Following The Hills series finale this week, the two reunited along with the whole cast, past and present, at the live after-show bash at the Roosevelt Hotel.

Despite what some think, the two don't hate each other at all.

"I saw her at the wrap party on Saturday and we caught up," Cavallari said at the after-show party, explaining that they're now cordial, but that's about it.

"We are not going to lunch together and I don’t have her phone number, but we are cool," adds Cavallari of Conrad, who's kept a low profile this past year.

Both girls also dated Brody Jenner at some point.

Speaking of that guy, whose fake relationship with Kristin was a primary, bogus story line this season, he's now with Avril Lavigne - but still close to Kristin.

"Our friendship is the most important thing and I don't think that anything will ever get in the way of that," says Cavallari, who's dating Miguel Medina.

Nice to see Kristin and LC on good terms. But if you had to pick ...

The entire cast of The Hills, minus the vanquished Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, but including alumni Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port, commemorated the hit MTV series' final episode Tuesday night with one last bash in Hollywood.

So much has changed between The Hills finale and what began as a Laguna Beach spinoff 102 episodes ago. But it was great to see LC back, since she started it all.

On hand were the likes of Kristin Cavallari, Brody Jenner and Audrina Patridge, along with bit players Justin-Bobby, Lo, Stephanie, that Stacie girl and many more.

Lauren Conrad is finally returning to The Hills ... right after it ends.

One week from tonight, the girl who made the MTV reality show a hit will be on hand for the Live Reunion Show after the now-sagging series mercifully goes off the air.

The reunion will immediately follow the series finale of The Hills and the season finale of The City. Whitney Port reported the LC news, as well as her own attendance:

"I am so happy to tell you all that I will be attending the reunion, as will Lauren!" Whitney wrote on her official site. "I am so excited to see everyone and catch up."

"I am so excited to see what's next for them," the former Hills star and current City leading lady continued. "It's been so long since we have all been together."

REUNITED: For one night and one night only, next Tuesday.

What remains unclear is whether Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, exiled from the show in recent weeks without notice, will appear between now and July 13.

The gruesome twosome was featured prominently in the first part of this season, but then Spencer went haywire, they supposedly broke up in real life, etc.

It's not clear why, but there has been no explanation of their vanishing from the series. Tonight, the penultimate episode of The Hills airs, followed by The City.

The former will likely focus on Kristin and Audrina's predictably boring romantic drama. Sigh. We can only hope Speidi returns to liven things up one last time.

The Hills returns tonight for its final season ... most likely. It could be extended a bit. Regardless, here's a look back at some moments that defined its first five:

FORGET PARIS: In the first season finale, Lauren Conrad made a brutal mistake that would haunt her for two more years, choosing to spend the summer with tool Jason Wahler over accompanying Teen Vogue editor Lisa Love to Paris.

Bearded

Fortunately, Whitney Port stepped in and fast-tracked her fashion career. Not that LC is hurting for cash, or boyfriends. Kyle Howard's a big upgrade over J-Wahl.

FALLING DOWN: As a Teen Vogue intern, Whitney endeared herself to millions after what could have been her worst moment, falling on stage after Vogue tapped her to model Hilary Swank's Oscar gown on Good Morning America.

The way she composed herself and handled the embarrassment with grace and dignity only impressed the higher-ups more, though (sorry to rehash this, Whit).

Two prominent former loves of Lauren Conrad.

THE LC SEX TAPE: It did not exist, but boy, did it spark a lot of celebrity gossip. Spencer Pratt (and in turn, THG) got so much mileage out of this twisted rumor.

BABY MAMA DRAMA: More than once, Heidi Montag has effed with Spencer regarding pregnancy. All a big hoax to watch him squirm? We're all for it even if so.

KISSING BRODY J: Everybody does it at some point, but Lauren and he had such chemistry. Still, despite the Las Vegas birthday hookup, Brody Jenner and Conrad determined they work better as friends, which they've remained since.

THE TRANSFORMATION OF HEIDI MONTAG'S FACE: Enough said, and ongoing.

WORSE THAN HEIDI: LC accused Audrina Patridge of insinuating she hooked up with Justin-Bobby - and that Audzo is worse than Heidi Montag as a result.

A shot from Heidi and Spencer's wedding - the non-staged version.

CAREER EVOLUTION: The show began with a focus on young women and careers in L.A., then became about quasi-celebs whose careers were being on The Hills.

THE WEDDING: Heidi and Spencer's wedding had something old, new, borrowed and even blue ... the dresses worn by both Lauren Conrad and her old nemesis, Kristin Cavallari, who replaced her as the star of the show. Cold, MTV. Cold.

F*%KING PIRANHAS: Kristin didn't wait long to stir up trouble, calling out Audrina and Stephanie Pratt and declaring "you f*%ked with the WRONG girl."

GROSS LOVE TRIANGLE: On a list of things we didn't need to spend a full season watching, Kristin and Audrina fighting over Justin-Bobby would be tops.

Lauren Conrad returning to The Hills is a long shot at best.

But that doesn't mean fans wouldn't love it, former bosses aren't advocating it and the show's producers aren't trying to figure out some plan for it.

"The show gave her a great run," Teen Vogue editor Lisa Love, who managed LC and Whitney Port, said at Diego Della Valle's MOCA fundraiser.

"She should definitely come back for the series finale."

The Hills creator Adam DiVello, in the news this week after being accused of harassing Heidi Montag (a claim MTV and Lauren Conrad deny), is up for it.

In fact, he's already been thinking of the ideal scenario.

Lauren Conrad's signature expressions made The Hills a hit.

Conrad's final appearance on the show came during Speidi's wedding, when she was officially replaced as the leading lady by Kristin Cavallari.

MTV would love to film her at another wedding - her own.

DiVello says his dream is to have Lauren walk down the aisle in the last episode, but clearly that's not happening, unless Kyle Howard already proposed and the show is prepared to pull off a huge surprise this summer.

Doubtful. But, "It'd be fun if Lauren and I caught up in Paris," Love said. "I think they could find a way to make it work with her coming back."

You can bet your bottom dollar they'll at least try. Follow the link to check out the final season trailer for The Hills spoilers and teasers galore.

Former Hills star Lauren Conrad says Heidi Montag's allegations of sexual harassment by the show's creator Adam DiVello, are as fake as Heidi's rack.

Well, she didn't choose those words, but she might as well have.

"Similar to most of my fellow MTV cast mates, I am in utter shock at the allegations made against Adam DiVello," she tells Us Weekly in a statement.

"Not only are they completely absurd, but they are 100 percent without merit ... Adam is a true professional and a wonderful person to work for."

Citing multiple sources, celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton wrote Tuesday that DiVello touched her inappropriately on the back and a$$ this year.

LC says no way that happened.

So Wrong on Every Level

According to Hilton, this is why Heidi Montag showed up with several bodyguards to a recent Hills photo shoot, not because she's a pompous diva.

He also said DiVello hit on Lauren Conrad, which she denied.

The fake-breasted one and her husband Spencer Pratt "are very close to bringing legal action against the show," an insider told Hilton, although Heidi Montag herself has yet to comment on the allegations allegedly alleged by herself.

An MTV spokesperson, meanwhile, said: "We have looked into this matter and the allegations made against Adam DiVello are completely false."

"Adam not only created The Hills and The City, launching the careers of its cast members, but works diligently to maintain a respectful environment."

Basically, the consensus is that Speidi lies and will say anything for headlines. Maybe unfair to say, but their reputation precedes them for a reason.

Four girls moved to LA ... We watched them grow ... We watched them live and love ... Nothing stays the same forever ... But no one saw THIS coming!

The last season of The Hills, which begins later this month, is being hyped by the MTV tagline above. The journey is coming to an end ... but it's not over until its over.

So we're told. A three-minute trailer has been released, taking us through what we've seen in five seasons to date and previewing the beginning of the end (April 27).

First, there's a mini-retrospective on the show, which images of Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag. Aww. They were so cute. One of them still is, and is recognizable!

The Hills used to be a fun guilty pleasure, but after LC rode off into the sunset prior to last season, the entire dynamic changed, with Kristin Cavallari in the mix.

This coming season, the show's last, promises even more contrived nonsense than before. Just a few of the story lines (sorry, real life events) teased in the trailer:

  • Mom Darlene staring in disbelief at Heidi Montag's plastic surgery
  • Spencer Pratt losing his $h!t at his sister ... and at Heidi's sister
  • Kristin being confronted about her alleged drug use/partying
  • Audrina Patridge dating Ryan Cabrera
  • Brody Jenner dating ... everyone
