The loathsome Spencer Pratt is a random dumbass who has gained celebrity gossip notoriety from being on The Hills as Heidi Montag's loser...

Man, it must REALLY suck to be rich! All that money and absolutely NO IDEA what to do with it! That's IT! Spend it all in one place, just like your mama said NOT to do!

While this certainly happens to regular people, when it happens to celebrities it's pretty epic. Watching stars who bring in millions and millions per picture have no money at all is sort of weird.

And yet, it happens. Often. Celebs file bankruptcy like some of us change our underwear. Maybe they wouldn't have to file bankruptcy if they bought normal-priced underwear?

Anyway.

Here are 11 stars who went broke (some will surprise you, some won't), because having a lot of money doesn't mean they know how to spend it wisely.

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt say their hit series The Hills was fake, which is old news by now, but they say it was worse than you even know.

The gruesome twosome visited Bethenny this week to set the record straight, with Spencer Pratt claiming he went along with the scripts for the money.

"On our show we knew the stakes. The bonuses if the ratings went up. No one forced us, but you want to be like, 'What can I do to get the ratings up?'"

"Our executive producer of The Hills wanted to have a Gossip Girl. He was not competing against reality shows, he wanted Gossip Girl, Sex in the City."

"He wanted an Emmy," Heidi Montag quipped. "Sorry, we didn't get it."

The couple says certain memorable scenes were totally faked, including when Montag told Pratt she might be pregnant, and he kicked her out of his car.

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."

How do you blow through a staggering $10 million in a few years' time? The Hills stars Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag can tell you from experience!

"We were immature," Pratt says. "Every time we'd go out, we'd order $4,000 bottles of wine. Heidi was going to the mall and dropping $20,000, $30,000 a day."

"We thought we were Jay Z and Beyonce."

The couple is telling all, ironically, because they're broke and going back to TV to recoup. Their E! special After Shock: Heidi & Spencer, premieres Monday.

Heidi Montag, 27, remembers The Hills as "a great experience" but notes that it "took a toll on my soul. I'm thankful not to have fake fights anymore!"

"I didn't realize people would only know me as that character," Spencer Pratt says of the show. "It was just a persona I played up to make a paycheck."

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are returning to reality TV in a new special chronicling their rise to - and fall from - fame. You can thank / hate E! for this.

After Shock: Heidi & Spencer will feature the former stars of The Hills discussing their rise to celebrity status and their life outside the spotlight these days.

As you can expect, that transition was tough for the plastic pair.

"The second [The Hills] ended, in 2010, the jig's up. Now you're irrelevant. Your 15 minutes are up," he says, lamenting the duo's fall from grace (or whatever).

Lacking any Kim Kardashian sex tape-style magic to keep them in the news, and having been phased out of The Hills even before it ended, Speidi went dark.

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 wasn't long ago when Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag were staples of THG. Every day, the pair made headlines for ... whatever it is Speidi would do.

Okay, those days are long gone, as is their fortune.

Nevertheless, they're still together! And partying with a professional photographer documenting the whole thing! Some things in life truly do never change.

In Las Vegas for Spencer Pratt's 30th birthday, Heidi Montag jumped out of a huge cake with her huge fake boobs, looking just as absurd as we remember.

Feels like 2007 all over again ...

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt say they were - wait ... just wait for it ... only pretending to be mean to win votes and cash in on Celebrity Big Brother (UK).

It almost worked. On Friday night, Speidi came second in the reality TV competition, leaving the house in England to a barrage of boos from the crowd.

Rylan Clark won the title, edging out Heidi and Spencer, who says backstabbing and general brutal gameplay was the whole reason they signed on.

“They brought us in to be Speidi and stir it up,” Spencer Pratt said. “I feel like a cartoon character. My talent for some odd reason is being an a**hole.”

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are causing quite a stir on the UK's Celebrity Big Brother. The gruesome twosome is receiving death threats, apparently.

"The American couple have become the most reviled contestants in the history of the show," one insider says, to the surprise of zero Americans.

The death threats are serious enough that "Big Brother chiefs will ensure they get close protection from minders when they eventually exit the house."

According to UK celeb gossip sources, the dastardly duo know as Speidi "mock other contestants, argue with them and refuse to join in tasks to get rewards."

Sounds about right.
