Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt started sparring to make headlines, but now they’re fighting for real! Is it really the end of Speidi?

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt always know how to get press — and decided to split (after some dwindling interest from America) to make headlines. But unfortunately, while pretending to hate one another, the two found themselves in the midst of a real-life breakup!

“It’s a case of art becoming reality,” an on-set Hills source tells exclusively. “The Heidi/Spencer split was originally intended to be a story arc, but now it’s become a reality.”

Why would Heidi, 23, and Spencer, 26, stage a break-up for the ‘reality’ show? “They’re very game to do the kind of stuff that gets them in the news,” our insider reveals. “It’s easy to present them with crazy ideas, because chances are they’ll say yes.”

Said crazy ideas include Heidi’s ten surgeries in one day, the alleged Lauren Conrad sex tape that Spencer leaked, Heidi firing her husband of a year-and-a-half as her manager and hiring a psychic healer in his place as well as even calling the cops on Heidi’s own mother!

In fact, a highly delusional Heidi was hoping the press might help her score Megan Fox’s role in Transformers 3, a role that went to Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. “Heidi realizes that The Hills are coming to an end and she has to have some type of career. The ratings and the people that care about the show are dwindling day by day,” reports our source, adding, “She needed to have some sort of plan in effect.”

But, in the long run, will that plan include Spencer? The status of their relationship remains iffy — but as with all things Speidi, never say die. Says our source, “It’s definitely true that they’re having marital problems, but whether or not this is the end of their marriage, I doubt it.”
