10 Times Spencer Pratt Was Actually The Sweetest Person Ever


If Lauren Conrad is known as the girl who didn’t go to Paris, Spencer Pratt will always be reality TV’s public enemy No. 1. On The Hills, his insane antics actually scared us, but beneath the villainous exterior was just a normal guy who was madly in love. He made himself famous by saying and doing the most ridiculous things ever: becoming creepily obsessed with crystals, dressing as an estranged old man at The Hills finale. Between his bizarre actions and his wife, Heidi Montag‘s, extreme plastic surgery over the years, “Speidi” became a worldwide obsession simply for being one crazy-ass couple. At this point, most of us thought his soul was basically a black, dark dungeon of nothingness.

Since The Hills wrapped in 2010, the couple remains happily married. The two even helped blow the lid off of the show [in what year?], saying they went to extremes for their “characters” and that the whole thing was scripted. Recently, though, they’ve come back down to Earth, admitting to have blown through their $10 million fortune and being content with the quiet, normal life they now lead.

Seeing a calmer side of Spencer brings us back to the times when he first popped up on The Hills as the charmer who was trying to sweep Heidi off her feet. When you stop looking at him as the show’s monster, you’d be surprised to see how sweet he actually was.

1. The time he surprised Heidi with a bouquet of roses and declared his love with a funny jig.

Isn’t this every girl’s dream and more? If the red roses don’t say love, maybe a happy little dance will do the trick. We know Lauren Conrad hated Spencer for 3,298 reasons, but he did treat Heidi like a princess.

Beyoncé Graces Cover of Time’s 100 Most Influential People

All hail the queen!

Beyoncé takes the prime spot as the cover girl on Time magazine’s annual list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. And she’s far from the only entertainer on the list.

Also making the cut were actors Amy Adams, Benedict Cumberbatch, Matthew McConaughey, Robert Redford, Kerry Washington and Robin Wright, along with musicians Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams and Carrie Underwood.

But it’s Beyoncé who gets top billing, having proven she can do it all – juggling motherhood with activism while, oh yes, reinventing how music is made, sold and performed.

“Beyoncé doesn’t just sit at the table. She builds a better one,” Sheryl Sandberg writes of the pop star in the Time 100 issue. “Her secret: hard work, honesty and authenticity. And her answer to the question, What would you do if you weren’t afraid? appears to be ‘Watch me. I’m about to do it.’ Then she adds, ‘You can, too.’ “

This year’s list includes a record 41 women. But “if there is a common theme in many of the tributes,” says Time editor Nancy Gibbs, “it’s the eagerness to see what some engineer, actor, leader or athlete will do next. As much as this exercise chronicles the achievements of the past year, we also focus on figures whose influence is likely to grow, so we can look around the corner to see what is coming.”

Redford, General Motors CEO Mary Barra and Jason Collins, the first openly gay NBA player, are featured on their own individual covers, too, though inside the magazine.
