Report: Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt Photos, Engagement Staged

at . Comments

We always suspected it was true, because it's kind of obvious, but now it looks as if the nauseating, fake-looking photos of Heidi Montag and her "fiance" Spencer Pratt - as well as their engagement - really are staged!

Video and audio footage has surfaced of some photographers talking about their paparazzi agency's "set up" that they did with the gross couple from The Hills.

Heidi and Spencer, as first reported by Celebrity Babylon, have reportedly racked up at least $30,000 for staging photos - as well as their engagement - for a spread in a certain tabloid magazine.

"It's an arrangement that suits both of them," says an MTV insider.

"They won't be walking down the aisle, but they will go through the motions of planning a wedding, and then have a big break-up that will get lots of press. All caught on camera by photographers, of course."

Wow. And we thought crashing scenes with Lauren Conrad during filming of Season 3 of The Hills was shameless.

Here's Celebrity Babylon's comment on the matter:

"It's a contract in hand... the dirtiest deal in Hollywood. The romance is a publicity stunt to make the two cover-worthy magazine stars and generate a significant side income!"

Anyway, here are more pictures of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt together, taken two days after their "engagement" was announced. Hope you've got a trash can on hand to throw up into.
