One of reality TV's best-known couples is sharing just a little more dirt about their dramatic time on the small screen.
During their Feb. 5 appearance on Bethenny Frankel's talk show, "Bethenny," Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag opened up about the pressure that came with starring on the hit reality show "The Hills." Though it remains a well-known fact among fans of "The Hills," the couple again stressed that the majority of the show was fake or scripted, reports Us Weekly. They added that they played up or exaggerated their personalities and situations for the camera.
"On our show we knew the stakes," Pratt said. "The bonuses if the ratings went up. No one forced us, but you want to be, like, 'What can I do to get the ratings up?' Our executive producer of The Hills wanted to have a Gossip Girl. He was not competing against reality shows, he wanted Gossip Girl, Sex in the City…"
"He wanted an Emmy," added Montag. "Sorry, we didn't get it."
Pratt also revealed that producers went so far as to encourage him to abandon Heidi on their wedding day -- the ceremony was filmed for the show in April 2009.
"They kept on turning off the lights and saying, 'Let's just call it. We've got the exit door and we've got your Rolls Royce right there. We can always reschedule and Heidi will leave with Lauren [Conrad] and it'll work out great,'" Pratt said. "I'm like, 'There are people that flew here. Heidi's dad will choke me to death.' This is where it gets real."
Montag was equally frustrated with producer's attempts to sabotage their special day.
"We have to draw the line somewhere," Montag said. "That was the beginning of drawing the line with them. It was towards the end, and we were like, 'We've done so much crap for you guys. The fact that you wouldn't give us a day, and now you're trying in all your power to ruin it.'"
But during a backstage segment, Pratt revealed he harbors no bad feeling toward the cast and would be open to participating in a "Hills" reunion. "It would be so much fun," he said.
