FOOLS OF ENGAGEMENT Pratt, Montag(Photo: Getty Images) The problem with being a celebrity today is that your every move is tracked and recorded, especially if you happen to be a celebrity with your own reality TV show. So we at weren't surprised when we caught The Hills' in a bold-faced lie while perusing this week's Entertainment Weekly. The duo both spoke to EW staff reporter Jennifer Armstrong for her bulky feature on the show's third season, but after Monday night's premiere, something was off about their comments.

Pratt and Montag both denied to Armstrong that they were getting engaged on the show or otherwise. Heidi showed up to her EW brunch interview with no ring on, and Spencer said "We can't wait to see how they edit that.... We would get engaged, we just wouldn't do it on Lauren's show."

The couple also swore to the magazine that Montag wore a "promise ring" and that the promos for the show claiming the duo's engagement were off. The day after the issue went to press, Montag and Pratt started a round of radio interviews where they claimed that they were engaged, and that they were even thinking of a spin-off show to get married live on television. And after last night's series premiere in which Spencer proposed to Heidi on camera, there can be almost no doubt that the two are (at least for publicity's sake) betrothed.


So why lie to EW? "I have no idea," Armstrong told "All you can go on is what the people say, and I have a tape and recordings." And this isn't the first time Pratt's comments on tape have gotten him in trouble. Turns out his new tactic is courting the press only to turn on them. Good way to make friends, Spence.
