Who even knew that Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag were that loaded? Reality shows pay, apparently, though the controversial couple learned the hard way how quickly you can lose it all by living too large. Spencer and Heidi have revealed to In Touch that they blew their $10 million fortune in the short time since leaving The Hills in 2010.

But how can two people go through all that money in just three years? “We were immature and we got caught up,” Spencer explained. “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 to $30,000 a day. We thought we were Jay Z and Beyoncé.” Uh, Spencer, we highly doubt Bey would step foot in a mall.

These days, the married twosome are living a simpler life, and staying within their means. “Now I can spend, like, $100 at Victoria’s Secret. I feel like a different person,” Heidi confessed.

Heidi also said that though doing The Hills was a valuable experience, she admits that it “took a toll on my soul.” Spencer agreed, stating that he didn’t fully comprehend what he’d signed up for when he got involved with the show: “I didn’t realize people would only know me as that character. It was just a persona I played up to make a paycheck.”

Though we’re sorry to find out about their financial hardships, we’re happy to hear that Speidi have found a more normal existence in the aftermath of reality TV fame.
