As we reported yesterday, Celebrity Big Brother couple Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag took an entourage of 15 bodyguards with them to a meet-and-greet signing of OK! magazine in a London bookstore yesterday…
And while claiming that it’s not excessive to have so many minders, Spencer also revealed that the warm welcome they received from fans at the event made it “worth going through the hell” of living in the CBB house.
He began by commenting on their bodyguards, saying, “Even when we go to lunch we have at least 15 security guards.
“And for proper public appearances we usually have a lot more…
“People think 15 is an exaggeration but I would have happily had more.”
Heidi added, “Having so many guards around us is a good deterrent. People are more prone to do something bad if they know you’re vulnerable.
“I just feel safer and that’s all that really matters. I’d rather be prepared.”
Spencer then remarked to the Daily Star, “I just like it because it’s like we’re the President or the Prime Minister. Or royalty.
“It makes me feel extra special if we have more bodyguards.”
Of yesterday’s signing at WH Smith in Brent Cross, Spencer said, “I was waiting for the haters but everyone was actually being lovely and saying we should have won Big Brother.
“They said we made it the best series ever.
“It made me realise it was worth going through the hell of living there. The nightmare was worth it if people enjoyed watching.”
Heidi added, “I would have been touched if only five had turned up but eventually we had to stop people ¬queuing.”
The couple are being trailed by cameras for a documentary that will air on Channel 5 on February 18 entitled, The Speidi Story, and it’s been revealed that viewers will see the couple returning to the States.
Of that, Heidi said, “Fans will get to see our life over there. You’ll get to see what makes Speidi tick.”
