Well I didn't even know who Brangelina were until recently, but at least Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have accomplished some stuff throughout their careers. They have starred in a number of high-grossing films and are among the top of the Hollywood "A List." Now Speidi comes along and I have just gotta ask this question:

Who the hell are these people?

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are NOT celebrities. They are famous for one reason, being friends with celebrities. Come to think of it, their "friends" Brody Jenner and Lauren Conrad aren't really even that famous themselves. One is the son of an Olympic athlete and the other has a show that no one over the age of 25 even knows about. But putting that all aside, the couple has been in the news alot this past week. A few days back Al Roker interviewed them about their experiences on the show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! and the two parties fought and blah, blah, blah...there was a controversy that spread on internet gossip blogs and Yahoo! Homepages and whatnot. But the one thing no one seemed to notice is that I'm a Celebrity and The Today Show are both on NBC!

By creating this buzz and "faking" a fight between Speidi and Roker I'm a Celebrity gets its name out there and NBC gets to cash in, as the major networks are in their summer slump when most programs are in reruns. NBC's show becomes the watercooler program of the summer and Spencer and Heidi get their names in the news so they can try to land a gig on another reality show about nothing.

It's one big conspiracy people, and Speidi is the Jack Ruby of today. Of course, most of you probably have no idea who that is because you have been watching too much reality TV.
