Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt once made $10 million because America is stupid, but they pissed it all away because they thought the world would end on December 21, 2012. So, yeah. SF Gate reports:
In 2010, Pratt revealed the couple was broke and on the verge of bankruptcy, and they even gave up their luxury home and moved in with his father to save money. He has now admitted they deliberately spent all their cash before December 21, 2012 —the day the world was set to end, according to a prophesy based on the Mayan calendar. He tells Britain’s OK! magazine, “We made and spent at least 10 million dollars. The thing is, we heard that the planet was going to end in 2012. We thought, we have got to spend this money before the asteroid hits. “Here’s some advice, definitely do not spend your money thinking asteroids are coming. But the world didn’t end.” Opening up about his extravagant lifestyle, Pratt adds, “I would give my friends $15,000 for their birthday. Just cash. I would buy people cars. Every valet I met got a couple of hundred pounds tip. I would pay people $200 just to open doors for us.”
I’m not gonna lie, the History Channel made me think the world was going to end and a friend of mine almost had me convinced that on December 22, aliens would activate their DNA they secretly implanted in us. I guess what I’m saying is it’s probably a good thing I didn’t have ten million dollars.
