Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt’s Hills wedding was portrayed on TV like a fairytale.
With blessings from the parents, and Montag’s adored ex-bestie Lauren Conrad in tow, the reality couple’s nuptials seemingly couldn’t have gone better.
But, says the duo, like their so-called divorce, the emotions that came across during their wedding episode were all “fake.” Now the couple plan to renew their vows and get a fresh start at married life.
“It was a movie, it was a script and it didn’t feel right,” Pratt tells Entertainment Tonight of the Hills marriage hoopla. “No one in that building wanted us to get married. It was a nightmare.”
Adds Montag, “We had just gone through so much crazy stuff personally and through our jobs and everything, so for me this feels like our first real marriage. Like our first restart. We deserve a second chance at our marriage and really having this moment and not being robbed of this.”
The couple have been married since April 2009.
