LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Reality couple Spencer & Heidi Pratt wrote the book on fame – but the pair told Playboy.com that they want to meet up with one superstar couple even bigger than they are.
“We’d love to sit down and discuss fame with them,” the pair, answering questions jointly as Speidi, told the mag. “Consider this your formal invitation, Brangelina. Let’s hang out sometime. We’ll be SpeidiLina!”
Brangelina earns the couple’s praise in their new book, “How To Be Famous: Our Guide To Looking The Part, Playing The Press and Becoming a Tabloid Picture.” However, they hope the mention won’t irk the couple.
“Well, we wouldn’t want to piss them off. She might steal Spencer—you know, because she steals people’s husbands!” they joked.
Though Speidi lay out a number of their methods for being famous in the book, one thing they’re not worrying about is a backlash from fans.
“Our fame has never been about being liked,” they said. “Being liked is fine, and we always love it when people come up to us and say nice things — which happens more than you think — but we’re famous because we always keep people guessing. What’s more surprising than a famous person actually telling people how they did it?”
The inspiration for the book, they added, was writing about what they do best.
“They always say, ‘Write what you know,’ and we know how to be famous. Plus, we’re extremely giving people,” Speidi said. “What good is having all of this knowledge if you don’t share it with others for the low, low price of $19.99, available online and at bookstores everywhere? As for how long it took, it was only as long as it took to dictate. This book didn’t require much planning or thought from us. It’s like if you asked Michael Jordan to write a book on how to dunk, or Bono to write one on how to be a rock star.”
While their MTV show “The Hills” rolls on, the couple joked that they have bigger plans for 2010.
“We’re going to adopt an African baby, date Vince Vaughn, shave our heads, pretend Spencer is trapped in a balloon and have octuplets,” they said.
