If there’s one thing I hate, it’s the newly rich. Well fine I hate a lot of other things, but new money is definitely in my top three. Why darlings? Because they’re just so tacky in the way they flaunt their “riches” (please, the interest on my trust fund alone puts their net worth to shame) and conspicuous spending. Case in point: Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag.
The Hills villains are opening up about how they managed to blow through $10 million in just a few years, and are now, as they say, eating from Mexican food trucks or cooking at home.
I’d rather be in my grave.
“We were immature and got caught up,” Spencer admitted. “We thought were were Jay Z and Beyonce. Every time we’d go out to eat, we’d order $4,000 bottles of wine. Heidi was going to the mall and dropping $20,000-$30,000 a day.”
Guess it really does cost a lot to look–and act–that trashy. See what I mean about gaudy purchases and gag-worthy spending sprees? You’d never catch an Upper East Sider doing anything so tacky and bourgeois as ordering a six-figure bottle of vino.
The pair will be returning to the small screen (shudder) with a new E! special called After Shock: Heidi & Spencer which will hopefully offer more chilling glimpses inside the lives of these two newly-poor “celebrities.” Can you really be considered famous if you are ordering taco platters out of a van? I didn’t think so.
