Spencer Pratt Says He Should Have Been Kim Kardashian

“They copied everything Heidi and I did on The Hills.”

As the original villain of reality TV, Spencer Pratt knows a thing or two about having his life televised.

So much so, that he actually believes that the Kardashian family copied everything he did in the early days of their career.

“I’m supposed to be Kim Kardashian. Watch all the early episodes of Kardashians. They copied everything Heidi and I did on The Hills,” Spencer said in a recent interview with Esquire.

Spencer has even previously cited one event in particular, where he says Kim was watching exactly how he was “interacting with the paparazzi” at a milkshake shop.

While the Kardashians skyrocketed to superstardom, Spencer’s reality TV career died down, which he attributes to one major difference between them.

“The only difference between us and the Kardashians, I’ve learned, is you’re only as famous as the media conglomerate bankrolling you,” Spencer explained.

At the time, Spencer says he didn’t understand “that once Viacom wasn’t in the Heidi and Spencer business, it was a wrap on the visions” he had for their success.

“Heidi and I, we were just always on our own. We had such a level of fame, I had never imagined needing to meet other people,” Spencer added.

From there on out, Spencer and Heidi took a step back from the spotlight, moving to Costa Rica to escape their tumultuous lives.

And while they’ve since returned to LA and tried to reclaim their reality show peak on The Hills: New Beginnings, the recent cancellation of the spinoff doesn’t bode well for their reality TV success.

Spencer says he’s not giving up though and is pitching new projects — because he still wants that “hit show so fucking bad.”
