Speidi Talks 'Hills,' 'View' and LonelyGirl
By Mike Hess Posted Sep 28th 2009 03:16PM
Spencer Pratt -- known to many these days as the mono-named couple Speidi -- have always been the crux of the drama on 'The Hills' in the past. Now, however, a new troublemaker is in town, and the words come straight out of the mouths of PopEater pals Spencer and Heidi themselves: Kristin Cavallari is a reality television goldmine. "She's banging everyone's boyfriends on the show ... Kristen Cavallari was born to be on reality television," Spencer tells PopEater. In their chat with PopEater, Speidi also dish on other 'Hills' happenings, how Lauren Conrad should take to YouTube and what to expect when Heidi co-hosts 'The View' this week.

Spencer! How goes it, sir?
King Mike! King Mike! King Mike!
I thought the King was your thing?
Everyone is a king. Everyone should be called a king. If I get to rock it, we all rock it. Your mom is a queen, your dad is a king. If anyone on earth is trying to rock a title greater than another human being's, we should all take over that title because that's not right in today's day and age.
I like that. So, what's the word in Speidi-town? It's been far too long.
Let's just go down to the goods, which is the greatest thing in the history of television, 'The Hills' and my new superstar cast member Kristin Cavallari who's banging everyone's boyfriends on the show. Wow am I ready to Tivo, DVR... I'm ready.
Can Kristen Cavallari compete with you in terms of bringing the drama?
I'm ready to take shotgun in the drama fighter plane because the reality is we've been in the trenches for four seasons getting down and dirty on television, and it's time for us to be a peaceful couple and make these new hungry hungry hippos for fame come get theirs. 'The Hills' was my favorite show in television minus Lauren Conrad. Not because I had anything against her, she's a nice girl, but she's not meant to be on television. She's a nice a girl to go to lunch with, but a girl like Kristen Cavallari was born to be on reality television.
So it takes a certain person to be on reality TV?
Beyond a certain person. Not that I'm saying you couldn't become that person if you were to buy 'How to Become Famous' written by Heidi and Spencer coming to book stores near you in November. That will help you maybe become Kristin Cavallari. For instance, I'm going to send Lauren Conrad her own personalized copy in case she wants to get back on 'The Hills.'
That's nice of you.
I'm a gentleman.
So after 'The Hills,' you'll be in the reality star mentoring career line?
As far as I'm concerned there will never be an after 'The Hills' because it will always be Speidi holding down Hollywood and reality TV and MTV ready to hold it down with us. I couldn't even imagine my life without 'The Hills.' My life would just shut down.
Hypothetically, what would you be doing if there were never a 'Hills'?
Wow, What if 'The Hills' never existed? I'd be trying to do 'Kings of Malibu' on MTV post-'Princes of Malibu' on Fox. Ha.
So should 'Hills' fans get ready for Kristin drama right away?
The second the camera goes on, she's like the Predator in the jungle when everyone goes into thermal imaging. It's like, 'Whose life can I destroy on television? Which girl's boy/husband can I go after?' They really went and got a ringer. When Kristin was the narrator of 'Laguna Beach,' it was bigger than when LC was the narrator, and the reason is one is twice, if not infinitely, more entertaining. Lauren's perfect for one of those shows like on YouTube like LonelyGirl... Lauren should be LonelyGirl2 on YouTube.
Interesting theory. Where'd she go, anyways?
Lauren or LonelyGirl. (laughing)
Man, we walked into that one. So Heidi's going to be on 'The View' this week?
Let me pass King Mike the phone to Queen Heidi. (Heidi gets on the phone)
HEIDI: I am, on Wednesday. I'm very excited for it. I love these women.
So what can you bring to the table in Elisabeth Hasselbeck's absence?
I don't think it's about bringing something she might not be able to, it's about filling in a void that might be there. I'm excited to share my opinions, my political views and whatever we might be discussing. Bring a younger viewership in... all the ladies are a little older than me, so to bring in views of someone of my generation and my age will be quite a good contrast.
Are you worried about Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar, who can be a little snippy and take shots at people?
I hope they are, I love controversy.
So what's your take on Kristin's new 'Hills' role.
I love Kristen. When she was on 'Laguna,' that was a whole different era of television. viewers are going to be excited to have someone on who's entertaining that you'd want to watch. Lauren didn't really show her personal life on the show for the past few seasons, and that's not what people want to watch. That's not why you're on reality TV. Viewers are going to be very excited to see what Kristen's been up to, and she puts it all out there, let me tell you.
How long do you expect 'The Hills' to go on?
At least 10 seasons. This is just the beginning of a whole new show within an old show. Now that Kristin's here, it's a whole new entity, a breath of fresh air. I definitely see this being on at least five more.
OK, at this point we'd like to open up the floor to you or Spencer if you've got anything else to say.
SPENCER: I want to say to PopEater, here we go. You know about our puppies, right? We have two new puppies, malti-poos. They're the size of your hand, the cutest thing you've ever seen. We've got little Ninja and Dolly. Otherwise, we can do a follow-up next week, which will be good. My business partner Kevin Casey he's fighting on the Fedor [Emelianenko] night, which is pretty much the most anticipated night of MMA. Our MMA business is about taken to the galaxy level. I'm very excited to be the new Don King of the MMA. I already got my own white 'fro going on. Probably not the crook part, though. I'm an honest man.
Thank you so much once again, thank all of your readers for allowing us have our post and I pray for the PopEater readers daily and I love you with all my heart.
