It has seemed painfully obvious to us - after a few too many covers and double-page spreads on the couple - that Heidi and Spencer likely have a deal with Us Weekly.
Star Mag points to a blind item in the New York Daily News (April 20), that read:
- "Which weekly glossy just signed a megamillion-dollar contract with a certain annoying celebrity couple? The deal is, the magazine will get exclusive interviews with the couple, but in turn, they need to break up (again), get back together (again) and actually get married."
These kids must be raking it in! They're obviously getting a cut of the "exclusive" photos they pose for AND they're on Wenner's payroll?!
Hey, with Britney back on track, Lindsay laying relatively low, and Paris being a good girl, the mags have gotta find their new "thing" -- but did it really have to be these two?
And if Us Weekly's paying off The Hills couple, where does that put Viacom's relationship with the mag -- that's a whole lotta free publicity!
UPDATE! - Just got off the line with a source from Us Weekly and I'm told there is DEFINITELY NO DEAL between the annoying celebrity couple and the mag. Source says "it's a mutually beneficial relationship" and that one of their Heidi covers was a top-selling issue. The Heidi-Spencer monster is outta control and America loves them AND loves to hate them!
Do you love reading about Heidi and Spencer each week in Us Weekly or would you rather them pay off someone else for scoops?
