KFC to Spencer Pratt: Let's Make Music Together

2/2/2011 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Spencer Pratt's chicken wing rap has a leg to stand on after all -- because the honchos at KFC just put a sweet offer on Pratt's table ... involving his song, a music video, and Colonel freakin' Sanders!!!!

0201_kfc_spencer_letter_EX_doc

TMZ has obtained a letter KFC President Roger Eaton sent to Pratt this week offering the lyrical genius (Pratt?) a sweet partnership with the company.

In the letter, Eaton says, "We heard the song came out before it was fully cooked, and that you were just winging it as a first cut. So on behalf of the entire Kentucky Fried Chicken family, we want to make you an offer so good you can't resist."  Chicken puns ... free of charge.

0201_spencer_audio_launch2Eaton continues, "We're willing to help you tune up the track and even turn it into a tasty music video, featuring the Colonel himself. That is, if you're not chicken."

Spencer afraid of a little attention? His response to the letter was, for once, simple -- "My dreams have come true!"

One man's dream ...

RAP SONG -- All About Chicken Wings!

1/25/2011 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's the song Spencer Pratt was too embarrassed to release -- an incredibly nonsensical attempt at rap about chicken wings ... counting eggs ... we have no idea ... but worst of all, it's actually not THAT bad.

0124_spencer_audio_launch_ex
The details around the song are pretty fuzzy -- but we're told Spence recorded it at an L.A. studio last year ... and he was so ashamed of the final product ... it never saw the light of day ... until now.

A sample of the lyrics -- "Money ain't a thing / Nothing but a chicken wing / Call me Mr. KFC / S dot P in the flesh."

Okay, maybe it is that bad.

11/15/2010 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Since the Heidi Montag/Spencer Pratt sex tape is never going to see the light of day, a leading porn company is going after the next best thing ... a porn directed by Speidi themselves.

TMZ has obtained a letter sent by Vivid honcho Steven Hirsch, offering the couple the chance to get behind the lens. The idea, it appears, is to have the gruesome twosome helm skin flicks that will draw directly from the couple's own fantasies.

We're told both sides will get together in the near future and discuss the deal, and Spencer is definitely interested ... if the numbers are right.

That's a phrase that applies to almost anything Spencer is offered.


Heidi & Spencer -- $100,000 to Stay Out of the U.S.

11/9/2010 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are considering taking a high-paying gig that could save their disastrous finances -- but there's a catch ... they would have to leave the country for a while.

Heidi and Spencer:
With Speidi recently admitting that they're practically dead broke -- a betting website called YouWager.com has offered the couple real life jobs -- with a real big salary -- if they would relocate to Costa Rica.

Here's the deal -- Heidi and Spencer would get a cool $100k to "manage the odds and lines surrounding the entertainment sector ‐- ranging from celebrity news and pop culture to music and movies."

Sources close to Spencer tell TMZ, he's considering the gig -- but in light of the recent political turmoil between CR and Nicaragua ... he's "looking into how he can legally own a firearm over there so that he can protect himself."

Fingers crossed.

Heidi and Spencer -- Divorce Is No S'more

10/1/2010 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Newly reconciled Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt spent yesterday evening roasting marshmallows -- over an open fire of their burning divorce papers.

Heidi and Spencer back together.
As we previously reported, Heidi called off her divorce from Spencer -- and as a symbol of their (unfortunately) undying love, Speidi fed each other s'mores that they'd cooked over an inferno of legal docs.

Heidi tells TMZ she was waiting for Spencer to make her his top priority: "All I ever wanted was to know that Spencer loved me more than he loved all this other nonsense."

For his part, Spencer tells us, "Through everything it's been Heidi's love that kept me grounded. Realizing my behavior was pushing her away was a terrifying wake-up call. I've still got a long way to go to repair the trust, but I hope with continued self improvement, our relationship will be stronger than ever."

Still ... something about this leaves a bad taste in our mouths.

9/30/2010 12:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Heidi Montag has officially called off her divorce from Spencer Pratt.

The two had been seen out in public together recently -- but yesterday, Montag made the reconciliation official, filing a motion for dismissal at L.A. County Superior Court.

As we previously reported, Montag filed for divorce back in July -- citing irreconcilable differences.

But now, after the two reunited in Costa Rica to deal with a sex tape scandal -- it seems Heidi is once again on board with the whole "'til death do us part" thing.

Spencer tells TMZ he is (finally) going to shave off his scraggly beard. Pratt admits he let himself go when Heidi kicked him to the curb -- but now that they're "spending more time together," she wants him to clean up.

He tells us, "I'm really sorry to see it go. For months it was my only friend, and a perfect place to save leftovers. I'm really hoping I can donate it to a worthy cause, like Donald Trump's head."

Breast Cancer Charity Has Issues with Speidi

9/14/2010 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The people behind the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer are distancing themselves from Heidi and Spencer ... claiming the reality duo did not "officially" participate in Sunday's event -- even though Heidi posed for several photos in official Avon gear.

0910_media_removed_Lindsay_Lohan1
A rep for the organization tells us, "While Heidi and Spencer did not officially participate in the Avon Walk and were not there in any official capacity, we do appreciate their support of the cause and the event."

Avon also notes that Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas was the official Special Ambassador for the event.

Sources at the race tell us Heidi and Spencer did not walk the course ... but merely showed up for a short while, took photos -- and then left.

As for the couple -- Spencer's rep tells us, "Having lost a mutual friend to Breast Cancer, neither Heidi or Spencer would've missed the event. It's a cause they both care deeply about."

So far, it's unclear if Speidi donated or raised money for the cause.

UPDATE: Sooo ... Spencer contacted us with more details. He claims he and Heidi,  "Accidentally happened upon the event, and immediately asked how we could participate. We would've loved to walk, but unfortunately Heidi's surgeries prevented that." Instead, Spencer says they bought "gear" to donate to the cause.

Spencer also corrected his rep's statement -- saying it's not a friend who had breast cancer ... he says, "My nana is in the hospital battling cancer right now -- so it's a cause that's extremely personal to me." Spencer says it's offensive for anyone to suggest this was just a "photo opportunity."
