Hot Gallery: These Small-Screen Couples Have Had Some Very Showy Romances
What could be more natural when two people are thrown together in a thoroughly unnatural reality-TV setting than for them to find true love? Well, okay, maybe not always true loveâ€”but the heightened reality of reality TV certainly has led to some wild (and some pretty weird) romances. For example, Heidi and Spencer from MTV's The Hills are still going strong and have the new E! special After Shock: Heidi and Spencer airing so we can check in on their romance.
Here are some of our other favorite reality-TV showmances of all time...By Nina HĂ¤mmerling Smith
The viewing audience first got to know Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt when they costarred on the hit MTV reality show The Hills. Montag and BFFrenemy Lauren Conrad had a falling out, partly over Pratt, but Montag and her man stuck it out. If you watched the show and are looking at the picture above thinking, Wait, that doesnâ€™t look like the same girl, youâ€™re rightâ€”it doesnâ€™t. Montag has spoken about her numerous plastic surgeries; she told ET sheâ€™s had â€śthree different faces.â€ť By 25, she already had an eyebrow lift, her ears sewn back, her jaw sawed down, her nose â€ścorrected,â€ť and fat injections in her cheeks and lips, as well as a boob job.
Update: Pratt and Montag are still together, although she said that all the plastic surgery nearly ruined her marriage. â€śObviously I wish I didnâ€™t do it,â€ť Montag told the Daily Beast. â€śI would go back and not have any surgery.â€ť She has since had a breast reduction to replace them with C cup implants. Montag released several singles and music videos (directed by none other than her husband), including â€śHigher,â€ť which has Montag rolling around in the surf, vamping in a pink bikini. Montag appeared in the reality series Famous Food; Pratt did voice work for an animated Ryan Reynolds movie. The pair was on the British version of Celebrity Big Brother in January 2013.
