Spencer and Heidi Pratt have been facing more controversies these days, fresh from their stint on I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!. This morning, the two Hills stars appeared on the NBC morning news show, Today. Apparently, they didn't leave the drama back in the jungles of Costa Rica. They took it to Al Roker for their interview.
Speidi, recently dubbed the "newlywed nuisance" of the wild, weren't too pleased with how the weatherman's questioning went. The two believed that they were going to be speaking with the show's host Matt Lauer, but they got quite a grilling from Al Roker instead. None of the parties involved were amused.
Some of the comments that Al Roker posed included calling Spencer Pratt the show's villain, going so far as saying he was a "jerk." He even started off by saying Speidi was "the poster children for everything that's wrong with celebrity in this country." Below, you can find the video clip of what happened on the Today show.
Obviously, Al Roker got on the nerves of Hills diva Heidi Pratt, because she later made an appearance on Ryan Seacrest's radio show to defend herself and her husband. "To be honest, I would never be interviewed by that man again," she grumbled. "I really would advise women especially to be careful around him, because I feel like he definitely came and attacked me, and I did not appreciate that at all."
Meanwhile, Spencer Pratt echoed her sentiments but with more perplexity than rage. "I'm still trying to figure out: Was the weatherman asking us questions?" he exclaimed.
His wife went on, claiming that what she underwent was humiliating and nothing she expected from the Today show. "I was shocked at how rude he was," the Hills star continued. "I was crying afterwards because I couldn't believe I felt personally attacked. He was yelling at me and saying, 'Do you feel proud of this, do you feel proud of this?' I wanted to say to him, 'Do you feel proud of how you're talking to me right now? I'm just a young woman and you're coming at me so aggressively and meanly and mean-spirited.'"
As for Al Roker, he couldn't get Speidi out of his head and even posted on his Twitter about them. "Heidi and Spencer are an interesting couple. famous for...being infamous. Bad and vacuous behavior. I think we're at minute 11 of their 15." He later added nonchalantly, "And the firestorm over Speidi continues. She claims I attacked her."
While it seems as though Al Roker could've been too intimidating for Speidi, it's likely that the whole incident is just another of their ploys for publicity. Of course, it's no surprise to us if it turns out that way.
