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.


In reality, they said the producers made them shoot more than 10 takes before Montag hopped back in his car and drove off to dinner with him.

"I would never be with someone who would kick me out of the car in the first place!" Pratt’s now 27-year-old wife said. "I’m not a pushover for sure!"

Spencer said that the final straw came when they were about to wed and Pratt was repeatedly asked to leave Montag during their Hills wedding:

"They kept on turning off the lights and saying, ‘Let’s just call it. We’ve got the exit door and we’ve got your Rolls Royce right there. We can always reschedule."

"’Heidi will leave with Lauren [Conrad] and it’ll work out great.’ I’m like, ‘There are people that flew here. Heidi’s dad will choke me to death.’ This is where it gets real."

"We have to draw the line somewhere," Montag added of the request to sabotage their nuptials. "That was the beginning of drawing the line with them."

"We were like, ‘We’ve done so much crap for you guys. The fact that you wouldn’t give us a day, and now you’re trying in all your power to ruin it.’"

The wedding went off without a hitch, and the pair – despite being forced off the show and blowing through their entire fortune – is still going strong.

Who saw that coming more than eight years after they got together?!
