It's the look that's got everyone buzzing!

Recently, Heidi's mom Darlene Egelhoff said on her blog that she was going to leave her daughter alone…but that may no longer be in the cards now.
According to her blog, Heidi's mom has been issued a summons because she owes $100,000 in unpaid bills for her restaurant, which recently went under.
Here's what she had to say about it in her blog:
“We are served papers by the county deputy sheriff, a very tall, overly happy gentleman, given his present task at hand. “That’s all I do anymore” he says “Serve papers, you’re not alone, it’s a sign of the times” he was trying to be nice and help us to feel comfortable."
“It is a notice of court summons to pay an excess of one hundred thousand dollars for a breech (sic) of contract from the restaurant we were evicted from and forced to close by the landlords themselves because we were delinquent with rent."
“We were forced to surrender eighty thousand dollars of equipment and fixtures to them already, of which the value far surpassed the debt."
“A new tenant is already in the space so they are not out any future earnings either, unless they have significantly reduced the rent for the new tenants. If that’s the case, that’s all the help we would have needed, and had been refused, to hang tough and ride out the economic storm as we were on a good upward trend and would liked to have stayed for twenty more years. Where’s Robin Hood when you need him?”
Guess we'll see if Heidi rises to the occasion to help her mom out, although we know Spencer Pratt will NOT want to get involved.
Do U think Heidi should pay off her mom's debt? Or do U think it's not her problem?

Reality TV show, drastic plastic surgery, near bankruptcy, martial arts.
It’s a classic celebrity progression.
"I have spent millions on security in the last four years because I had to take care of the cost all on my own. It's crazy and it's hard, but life is not always fair.”
Heidi says that because of her and Spencer’s financial troubles, they’ve had to make a lot of changes in their lifestyle:
"I have had to change my life. I can't afford to go out to the clubs anymore because the sort of protection I need can cost anywhere from five to 10 thousand dollars a night … when you travel it's even worse, because you need to cover the guards travel, food lodging, etc and pay them. That is actually where all my money went because safety is number one."
While we’re not sure that knowing martial arts will help Heidi fight off mobs of paparazzi and fans, we think it’s a good idea for everyone to know a little self-defense!

And apparently, it's legit!
Although the couple are allegedly broke, they managed to have most of the wedding's expenses - cake, Heidi's dress, flowers, etc. - donated to them.
"[This time] it's just me and my bride on a little secret beach with nobody else and it's just about her. Versus last time it was about everything else, it was about drama, it was about ratings."
"It was about everyone but us, so this is really our first wedding about Spencer and I and our love. Now I feel like I can finally just be Heidi and just be in a marriage and just be a person. I’m just really enjoying every day."
We have to admit, they both look very happy in the photo (above). Let's hope that this year these two can keep a low profile, get their lives in order, and just enjoy being married - out of the spotlight!
Nothing like rushing a marriage to keep your name in the press!
Even though the couple has been married before and this ceremony was considered a renewal of the vows, Heidi insists that this is actually their first wedding. She said:
"(Last time) I had Lauren Conrad telling me to leave, the producers telling Spencer to leave me at the altar and it was just really awful. I had my mom yelling at me, telling I needed my stepdad to walk me down the aisle, not my real dad.
It was just so awful and everyone was just so mean, and no one there wanted us to get married. They just wanted a show, so now this is real.
We had a lot of voodoo on the last one so I’m ready for a new marriage."
We hope it works out this time! Congratulations!

We believe we spoke of this just a few weeks ago when we talk about tactics to get Speidi back in the spotlight!
Way to take our advice, guys!
For Heidi, she revealed that this actually feels like they are getting married for the first time, calling the actual first wedding an "elopement," spoiled by "margaritas" and crazy times and the second one the "Hills" wedding, a ceremony for everyone else, but not them. She added:
"We had just gone through so much crazy stuff personally and through our jobs and everything, so for me this feels like our first real marriage. Like our first restart. We deserve a second chance at our marriage and really having this moment and not being robbed of this."
Spencer shares her sentiment, saying:
"Since we had to do the first ceremony, I've been thinking about the second ceremony. The first one was so fake and not real. It was a movie, it was a script and it didn't feel right. No one in that building wanted us to get married. It was a nightmare."
Well, time to make up for lost time.
Just one question: who's paying for this? Aren't you guys broke?!

Either we're finally seeing Spencer Pratt being 100% honest, or this is the most brilliant publicity stunt these two have pulled yet!
The former reality star is opening up about his dire financial situation that's left he and his wife, Heidi Montag, living with nothing but a $400 a week allowance from his father, the alleged 'real' reason the two almost divorced, and why he's giving up famewhoring!
"We felt the fleetingness of 15 minutes of fame so we were trying to buy, like, … Let's buy fame. Like if we could eat at this restaurant all the time, maybe we'll get seen with Mel Gibson or these bigger stars. So you know, we knew our positions, so we were having basically to buy into a tax bracket we didn't belong into. I know it's the dumbest thing ever spending money on things. But it's like, if we didn't, we wouldn't have got this [web write-up], or we wouldn't have got this picture in the magazine, and then we wouldn't be famous at all, and that's the only thing we had going for us at the time. I would say we were spending more than $100,000 [each month] on clothes for sure. And we would only wear them once. For me to think I was going to be famous and continue at that level of income on a steady basis, was … naive, egotistical, and just foolish. I can't have a long-range plan because I'm so hated I don't see anywhere I could go. I'm not afraid, I know it's a reality if we didn't have my dad letting us live in his guesthouse, Heidi and I would have no place to live so we would be homeless and we couldn't afford [to live] anywhere. As much as I love her, I was like, 'You need to divorce me to save any chance of a career, a business for yourself.' It's not fair for this sweet, innocent Heidi Montag to be part of Speidi. So really I was trying to divorce Speidi … ’cause you know I know I have no future career on camera, on TV, but Heidi, still to this day, I think could be the biggest actress, TV star, movie star, singer — she was born for it. I became this hated to buy things that I don't even have anymore. So I have nothing to show for it. Thank everything that Heidi has stayed with me through all of this because I wake up and say, 'At least I have Heidi. [That's] the greatest thing out of all of this.'"
Honestly, we still can't be sure that this is sincere, as all of the nonsense that he's pulled has destroyed any ounce of credibility he ever had, but we definitely think that coming 'clean' like this is a step in the right direction.
What do U think?? Do U think Spencer and Heidi are actually being real here?

No argument from this corner!
We haven't heard much from Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag since their plans for a divorce folded and they joyously reunited. We would have expected a recommitment ceremony by now or at least some publicized plans to reignite their celebrity.
But sources are reporting that they've been a little busy with other stuff these days - like trying to recoup financially from blowing through $10 million!
Wow! Who knew they had that much?
The couple is telling sources that not only have they been left penniless after throwing money away on homes, cars and Heidi's "music career", but that they are now currently homeless and owe $2 million in taxes. According to them, they are one step away from filling for bankruptcy!
Life& Style caught up with the pair and asked them how they could get themselves into such a situation. Spencer, who claims he's "looked into unemployment checks," explains that they were "idiots":
"We were immature, worrying too much about the famous part instead of the actual business part, In hindsight, we shouldn't have spent any of our money. We should have been low-key and saved. We thought The Hills was going to be like [the original] '90210' and we'd have another five to 10 years. The ratings were consistent. But we never saw Jersey Shore coming. Before, TV audiences were fine with seeing us all argue, but now they want you to punch one another in the face and hook up with three different people. Our cast was a bit boring and snoozeworthy in comparison. No wonder we got canceled."
Yes, but as we all recall, you got canned a long time before the show did, Spencer! Just saying!
For now, the pair are living off the kindness of Spencer's parents, living in their guest house and having them go grocery shopping for them. But regardless of their sad situation, shockingly, Speidi knows that it is self-inflicted. Spencer added:
"We don't want sympathy. We did this to ourselves and feel like idiots. But we've grown up and are definitely not as naive anymore."
Time will tell if that is really true. Hopefully, they got paid for this interview at the very least.
We want to feel bad for them, but as they pointed out, they did this to themselves. Plus, they've burned so many bridges along the way that we don't see them rebounding anytime soon. Honestly, it would only take one reality show to bounce them back on their feet, but who the hell is going to hire them?!
