LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Spencer Pratt appears to have found something he loves more than seeing himself on TV – the cyber security of the nation.
“In the last few months, I, Spencer Pratt, have discovered a new passion and new purpose to my life. With this in mind, I have decided to take a break from my obligations to MTVs ‘The Hills’ and discontinue filming any more episodes for this current season,” Spencer said in a statement to Access Hollywood.
The reality star, known for his flesh beard and love of new age crystals, said President Obama inspired his new career choice as a founding member of American Defense Enterprises’s Cyber-Secuity Division.
“Upon learning of President Obama’s declaration that the ‘cyber threat is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation’ I have decided to refocus my energy and devote my full resources to helping America face this and other unprecedented challenges,” Spencer continued. “With this in mind, I’ve founded the Cyber-Secuity Divsion at American Defense Enterprises.”
Spencer has even announced that he has a new mission in life.
“My new mission is this: To do my part in maintaining the technological superiority of the U.S. military and prevent emerging technologies from threatening our nation’s security,” he continued. “I am saddened to take this break from filming MTV’s ‘The Hills,’ a show that has afforded me the opportunity to pursue my mission to keep our country secure. At this time, however I feel I would not be honoring my country or myself if I were to continue this endeavor when I have the opportunity and the ability to assist our nation against these prevalent threats. God Bless America.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Spencer’s wife, Heidi Montag, fired Spencer as her manager last week. The starlet, who underwent 10 plastic surgery procedures in January, hired psychic Aiden Chase to oversee her career. She even declared that “Speidi” is no more.
