It was a match made in reality TV heaven, butÂ The Hills‘ stars, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, just couldn’t make it work. The couple met and married while on the show, and now that theÂ Â MTV reality show is ending, their marriage seems to be falling apart as well. Montag confirms to People magazine that she’s moved out and needs some time alone…
There has been speculation from the start about the authenticity of the marriage between Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, stars ofÂ MTV‘sÂ The Hills. The couple illegally eloped in Mexico in late 2008 and officially tied the knot in April of 2009 and have seemed to grasp at every possibility for publicity since. Now that the clock is ticking on the reality show that made them famous, Montag confirms that the pair has separated. Montag reportedly moved out of their Pacific Palisades home and is moving in with friend (and former guest star onÂ MTV‘sÂ The Hills), Jen Bunney.
“I needed some alone time,”Â Heidi Montag tells People magazine.Â ”There are so many lies out there about me and I just needed space â€“ even away from my husband.Â I had to get away from the lies my family and supposed friends are saying about me. It’s time to concentrate on myself.”
Montag plans to move into a Malibu home with Bunney where the two ladies will begin filming a reality show of their own. Bunney says the new reality show will focus onÂ ”huge turning points” in both of their lives. “Is [Heidi] going to be a single, independent woman or is she going to stay with Spencer?… We know fame is fleeting, fame is not going to support us for the rest of our lives. We need to make smart decisions right now,” Bunney says.
As for the future of Heidi’s relationship with Spencer Pratt, she hasn’t completely given up hope.Â ”I’ve always loved Spencer,” says Montag, “but right now we’re working on things.”
