Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt say they re out of money.



There’s lots of reality news this week. Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are broke, D-list stars will hit the ice and “The Apprentice” and “Survivor” are heating up.

Heidi and Spencer

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt from “The Hills” have become the poster children for what not to do in the reality TV world.

Montag and Pratt have caused havoc on every reality show they’ve appeared on, made news about their insane relationship — and Montag’s had every possible body part re-built or re-arranged.

Last week, Pratt and Montag announced they were broke and homeless. The couple freely admits to blowing more than $10 million dollars on their celebrity lifestyle.

Must be nice.

Here’s where they went wrong. The ditzy duo spent $3 million dollars to launch Montag’s music career (LOL) and thousands more on her plastic surgery. The couple also spent cash on household “necessities” like private jets and healing crystals.

Duh, you think that might have something to do with this financial tsunami?

Dumb and dumber — alias Heidi and Spencer — probably will come up with a reality show about this hot mess.

‘Skating with the Stars’

This season’s “Dancing with the Stars” is down to the final contestants, so ABC’s looking to franchise its dance shows.

The not-so-brilliant execs are bringing back the dud “Skating with the Stars.” The show pairs celebs with skating pros — and everyone prays they walk off the ice in one piece.

This time around, “Skating with the Stars” booked a very bizarre group of pseudo-celebs. The roster includes “Real Housewives of New York City” star Bethenny Frankel, Olympic skier Jonny Moseley, wacked-out actress Sean Young and Motley Crue frontman Vince Neill.

Did we forget to mention this? The show will be aired live.

This will be one ice show that goes down in flames.

“Skating with the Stars” debuts Nov. 22 on ABC.

‘Apprentice’ and ‘Survivor’

It took enough time, but “The Apprentice” and “Survivor” are heating up mid-season. The shows just threw in serious curveballs to keep viewers tuned in.

For starters, there’s a scandal brewing on “The Apprentice.” The show’s coming attractions had the players heading back to the boardroom immediately after the pesky David Johnson was fired.

It seems a contestant has been texting and getting cash from someone outside the show. Get ready, because Donald Trump’s about to blow his wig — er, lid.

“Survivor” is gaining steam, too.

The teams just merged amidst a food stealing scandal and wicked immunity idol plays. This week, expect to see a serious blindside and devious moves by the players.

“Survivor” airs Wednesdays on CBS, and “The Apprentice” airs Thursdays on NBC.
