USA TODAY - How do you blow through $10 million in a few years? Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, former The Hills stars who no longer have paychecks, explain in an interview with InTouch magazine.

"We were immature," Pratt, 30, says in the interview, on newsstands now. No kidding. He says they spent up a storm while they were on the MTV reality show.

"Every time we'd go out to eat, we'd order $4,000 bottles of wine," he says. "Heidi was going to the mall and dropping $20,000 to $30,000 a day. We thought we were Jay Z and Beyoncé."

The couple is talking because they're practically broke and going back to TV to recoup. Their E! special After Shock: Heidi & Spencer, premieres Monday.

Any regrets about doing The Hills? "I didn't realize people would only know me as that character," Pratt says. "It was just a persona I played up to make a paycheck."

Montag, 27, remembers the show as "a great experience" but notes that it "took a toll on my soul. I'm thankful not to have fake fights anymore!"

Since the fighting has ended, will the couple be receiving an invite to Lauren Conrad's upcoming nuptials? Not likely.

"I've talked to Lauren a few times on the phone since The Hills," Montag says. "She was really sweet, but I don't think so."

Last month, Montag, famous for detailing her adventures with plastic surgery, showed off her new, smaller breasts, which she acquired after undergoing more surgery to have her breast implants removed. They were too heavy and she needed something more manageable, she said.
