By Michael Lewittes


Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt dish on how fake “The Hills” really was in an upcoming interview on Wednesday’s “Bethenny.”

Pratt revealed that of the main reasons they fabricated drama on the MTV show was because cast members would received “bonuses” if the ratings went up.


Montag said she faked her pregnancy scare for a “huge bonus.”

Pratt also talked about how much cash the couple raked in for staging paparazzi shots outside of the show.

He shared, “They were never following us, I was calling them. There’s big money in there. Every photo you take, they are selling them to the tabloids. So if you partner up with them, you get a cut.”

“We were making like half a million dollars in photos a year,” added Pratt.
