Spencer Pratt is either really insightful or way off base.
In a piece for Vulture magazine, Spencer and Heidi Montag sat down to reflect on the Hills once again. While the pair has dished on the iconic show many times before, Pratt offered a gem about Kim Kardashian West and Lauren Conrad that we just couldn’t pass up.
According to the former reality villain, Lauren could have been MORE famous than Kim is she had been more authentic on the series. Spence went on to argue that L.C. had all the ingredients, but her need to be play a manicured role got in the way of her fame.
Interestingly enough, Mr. Pratt praised Kimmy as the embodiment of authenticity, which is ironic timing considering a lot of people are saying K.W. staged the Paris robbery.
When the MTV alum was asked about who “succeeds on reality TV”, he argued:
“People would say, “LC is so authentic.” No, she’s not. I was around the real LC a lot more than any of these so-called fans that think they know her. What she was good at was being authentic to what she thought her audience wanted. But I think the real LC was way more entertaining, way more opinionated. Somebody who I do think is pretty damn authentic is someone like Kim Kardashian. Lauren could’ve been bigger than Kim Kardashian if she felt more real, but she is this Mary Tyler Moore avatar that they created for her, and she tries to fit into that formula that works. Obviously, she’s a millionaire. I’m not saying she failed. I’m saying Kim’s making millions a day. Lauren was way ahead of Kim, light-years.”
Wait, did we just read that correctly? Spencer thinks Conrad could have easily been today’s Kim?! What a statement!
So, do YOU agree with Pratt’s comments?
