Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt - WE tv Present "The Evolution of Realationship Reality Shows" at Paley Center for Media, Evolution - Beverly Hills, California, United States - Thursday 19th March 2015
Bill Montag appeared on the MTV show’s fifth season, when his daughter married Spencer Pratt.
Bill Montag, the 67 year old father of ‘The Hills’ star Heidi Montag, has been arrested in Colorado on allegations of sexually abusing a young girl as well as committing incest, according to police.

Montag was taken into custody on Thursday in Aspen, Colorado and later charged with three counts of sexual assault on a child and aggravated incest, according to Denver’s 7 News Channel. He is alleged to have committed the acts between 1993 and 1998, starting when the victim was 13.
Do you miss Lauren Conrad and Spencer Pratt? Where are the cast of The Hills these days?
After catching up with the Olsen sisters we’ve been thinking about what other celebrities we haven’t seen for a while. Remember how utterly entranced by The Hills we all were? Every now and then LC crops up, but what are the rest of the cast up to these days?
Lauren Conrad stood alone as the voice of moral reason for most of The Hills. While other cast members acted atrociously towards one another, LC stood for loyalty and honesty. Not comprising her ethical stance for ‘good’ television paid off and Lauren is now more successful than ever. She’s written a series of novels aimed at young adults as well as becoming known as a bona fide beauty guru. She has her own fashion line and has recently announced her engagement to guitarist William Tell.

We've all heard of a sore loser, but after Celebrity Big Brother winner Rylan Clarke spoke to The Sun today (Jan 26) following his victory, it looked as though most people were in unanimous support of what he had to say, particularly when he began ranting about everyone's favourite couple to hate, Spiedi.
Clarke was quick to criticise his fellow former housemates Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, who looked for a while like being the front runners to win the show despite their odious behaviour throughout the show's run. The X Factor reject told the paper: “I've never met two people that made me feel so uncomfortable being around them in my life,” adding that he, like many others, believes that the pair were playing a game to turn the rest of the housemates against each other to take the title.
"At the end of the day Speidi played a game. They've taken the crown from Nasty Nick," the reality TV veteran said, adding, “I did think they were genuinely gutted that they didn't win. Part of me does think that they are made up for me. But f*** 'em, I won in the end."

Gillian Taylforth became the fourth person to be evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house last night, and immediately after her boot she sunk her claws into the double-trouble team of Heidi and Spencer Pratt, labelling them as "bullies."
The former Eastenders and The Bill actress opened up on her experiences in the house when she was interviewed by CBB host Brian Dowling following her eviction, discussing her true feelings about the rest of the housemates, especially Spiedi. "I didn't like it at all," said the actress, referring to the time when the US reality stars moved back into the house again, after they had been living in the basement together. She went on to say that because of those two in particular, the house erupted in argument after argument, something she wasn't a fan of at all. She said, "I've been around arguments a lot in my life and been involved in them and I didn't like it at all."
"Especially when they started saying about Claire, and she got really upset - I found that not very fair, it was like bullying," she added, whilst also discussing her attempts to remain as far from the conflict as possible and persuading others to do so too.

Not content with the fame and fortune that a life of reality TV has brought her, Heidi Montag (star of The Hills and Celebrity Big Brother housemate) is convinced that she has what it takes to be a pop star. The 26 year-old is so self-assured by her vocal talents that she allegedly sunk a fortune into recording her own album, Superficial which was released… and sank without a trace… in 2010.
Even with the powers of one of pop music’s greatest songwriter’s Cathy Dennis at her disposal, and technological advances, such as auto-tune, we have to say, Heidi, please don’t give up the day job. Whatever that is, exactly. We’ve looked a little deeper into Heidi’s pop career and, frankly, it’s a joke. It’s not even ‘so bad it’s good. It’s just bad, sorry Heidi. We reckon Cathy Dennis must have been clearing out her ‘unwanted pop song’ drawer when she handed these duds over to Montag; most likely she didn’t want to waste her best songs on someone that can’t hold a tune. Songs like ‘I’ll Do It’ and ‘Higher’ are vacuous pop at their very worst.
The bottom of the barrel, though, has to be the video for ‘Higher,’ which was directed by her husband Spencer Pratt. If it was filmed as a comedy sketch, they’d probably be up for some kind of award. As a serious pop video, though, the low-budget ‘chasing seagulls’ Montag-montage simply doesn’t cut it for us. And yes, we know you have a nice figure. And no, we don’t want to buy your record. She’s already admitted that spending that $2million left her broke. Frankly, watching that video has left us broken.
It's not use putting all that garb on Paula Hamilton, we know that it's you whose the first to have been evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother UK house. The veteran British model entered the contest on January 3, alongside, um, 'stars' like former footballer Neil Ruddock, X Factor UK contestant Rylan Clark and former Steps member Claire Richards, but only six days later she found herself on the way back out, as the public opted to save race jockey Frankie Dettori and reality TV couple Heidie Montag and Spencer Pratt.
Celebrity Big Brother 2013 has had its first eviction, and Paula Hamilton's biggest fear came to fruition as the ex-supermodel became the first of the season to be evicted.
Hamilton, 'Speidi' aka Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, plus Frankie Dettori were all up for eviction. Frankie had sacrificed himself to make sure everyone one the 'basement' could come up to the main house, and stop living in squalor. During evictions, Speidi - as one housemate - received 10 nominations, i.e. everyone in the house nominated them, and Paula got four nominations. She took the news badly and even threatened to leave early. For the following day she ranted about how she had feared being first to leave, telling the other housemates that she was convinced she'd be leaving and that it would seriously, negatively affect her career. While the other housemates tried to reassure her that it was 'just a game', she retorted that it wasn't a game, that is affected her life.
Upon leaving the house she was met with boos. Speidi managed to survive the week despite being boring and mean. The voting was to save the housemate rather than evict though, so while Frankie has been endearing, and Speidi have their die-hard obsessive fans around the nation, Paula in contrast seemed a little tame. Having been saved though, Speidi have been set a secret task by Big Brother - to convince fellow housemates that they're walking out... only to head straight to the basement where it will have been made suitable for the couple, from which they will reign over the main house, unbeknownst to the rest of them. Sneaky.
Things are getting tense in the Celebrity Big Brother house, just two days after the show’s kickoff, but would anyone have any other way?
The whole basement/luxury upstairs quarters scenario has become the source of a lot of the tension in the house, as those downstairs get increasingly cross with the lucky upstairs residents. The other reason for the problems? American reality show duo Speidi, aka Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, who gained international stardom (well, sort of) on MTV’s scripted reality drama thing The Hills. According to the pair, Spenser’s portrayal on as the villain of The Hills was for entertainment purposes only and it didn’t matter that he was painted black for the world to see, as long as the checks were rolling in. Maybe not a villain, but certainly a bit annoying, if the first couple of days on CBB are anything to go by.
During that time, Spencer managed to tee off a bunch of his fellow contestants, before he and Heidi moved up to the luxury rooms at the surprising decision of Frankie Dettori. Their run didn’t stop there, however, as Heidi got into something of a bikini body contest with page three model Lacey. Overall, it’s your standard drama this year. If you enjoy watching semi-famous people, lounging about their opulent surroundings and complaining about anything and everything – Celebrity Big Brother – tune in for more.
Celebrity Big Brother housemate Paula Hamilton reportedly failed psychiatric tests to appear on the show three years ago, according to a former crew member. The former model and actress entered the famous house during last night's premiere wearing a bizarre outfit and mistaking fellow contestant Ryan Moloney as somebody working on the show.
Jo Hemmings, who worked on every series of the show when it was on Channel 4, vented her anger at the model's inclusion on Twitter, saying, "Paula Hamilton - because sending an alcoholic who failed her C4 psych tests three years ago is SUCH a good idea...At the risk of sounding like a killjoy, it's a seriously irresponsible decision." At the behest of jockey Frankie Dettori and X Factor star Rylan Clark, Paula was immediately sent to the "basement," where half of the celebrities will remain in the cold and damp until further notice. Hemmings continued, "Paula Hamilton in basement? I was going to give her 48 hours in the house, pre meltdown. Much less now. She shouldn't be there at all!" before claiming the model has "way more problems than Jasmine Lennard," who behaved strangely during the last series.
Hamilton was joined in the basement by Neil 'Razor' Ruddock, Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Ryan Moloney but sure enough, she was soon moved upstairs to the luxury accommodation after becoming unwell. A show insider told The Independent, "After receiving advice from the Big Brother doctor, the decision was taken to move our former supermodel from the dank CBB basement to the glorious world above. She is a new luxury housemate. It's a real rags to riches story."
So, the newest series of the show that managed to die a hard death only to be sadly revived like a second Frankenstein's monster, rehashed from the original - more nuts and bolts and scars than can be counted, and probably scarier - has returned. That's right, Celebrity Big Brother is back with a new cohort of desperate celebrities whose own careers have failed and are willing to do anything to regain the spotlight, or a spot of extra cash.
So, here's the tragic lineup for this year:
1. Frankie Detorri
