Reality TV personality Heidi Montag is perhaps best known as a cast member of The Hills, although she also attracted a fair amount of publicity for her antics outside of the show, including a pop music career and a highly publicized relationship with Spencer Pratt. Born in Colorado in 1986, Montag first came to the public's attention after appearing in several episodes of the MTV reality series Laguna Beach. Focused on the lives of several high-school students in an elite California beach town, Laguna Beach was a hit and spawned a second show, The Hills. Although ostensibly focused on cast member Lauren Conrad's life in Los Angeles, The Hills also became a showcase for Montag, with whom Conrad shared an apartment at the time. Essentially the show's co-star, Montag dropped out of college and nabbed an internship with the event-planning company Bolthouse Productions -- all of which was plot fodder for the series. However, it was Montag's relationship with cast member Spencer Pratt during season two of The Hills that drew the most attention.
