Reality star Heidi Montag was recently spotted on a beach in Santa Monica, flaunting her enhanced assets in a red bikini. In October, the bubbly blonde hosted a party at the Crazy Horse III Gentleman's Club in Las Vegas. Ordinarily, these Heidi sightings wouldn't be out of the norm, except these days it seems that Montag has been keeping a mighty low profile. What has kept the fame-lover out of the spotlight?
For Better or Worse?
Around Valentine's Day in 2012, she and hubby Spencer Pratt were snapped leaving a convenience store. The schlumpy pair's sullen expressions ignited rumors that they might be on the rocks. It certainly wouldn't be the first time that they'd be accused of marital discord. In 2010, Heidi filed for divorce from Pratt, sparking rumors that their marriage had imploded. Later the two confirmed that the filing was a publicity stunt, intended to keep Heidi relevant in the industry. Unfortunately, even dumping her controversial husband wasn't enough to keep her in the public eye.
She regrets her cosmetic surgeries.
Some celebrities are famous for their music. Others are famous for-well, being famous. Montag happens to be well-known for enduring ten cosmetic procedures in one day. Her nose, lips, breasts, stomach and thighs (amongst other parts) were all enhanced during a grueling 24-hour period. But now Heidi admits that she wouldn't do it all over again if given the chance. It seems that she's spent her time outside the limelight, reflecting on her inner qualities.
She's bleeding money.
The surgery-obsessed blonde also confesses that she's lost a ton of money since "The Hills" went off the air. Apparently, keeping up those Barbie looks is pretty expensive. Between luxury clothes, aesthetic treatments, and other Hollywood "expenses," the reality star has hemorrhaged more than $1 million. Heidi joins perhaps hundreds of other celebrities who wished they had saved the cash they made from their on-screen endeavors. She and hubby Spencer Pratt are currently living in a house his family owns, just to make ends meet.
The Next Phase…
Heidi has apparently traded fancy Hollywood dinners for homemade chicken noodle soup. Health and fitness have replaced photo ops and red carpets. Pratt swapped public meltdowns for political science; he's currently pursuing a degree at USC. And instead of making babies, the couple nurtures their four puppies. Regression from the public eye has certainly changed their outlook on life. Is it possible Heidi and her reality hubby could become more famous simply for being normal? Hmm…
