Heidi Montag

Posted by Geobert Adan Son

Heidi Blair Montag (born September 15, 1986) is an American reality television personality. She is known for starring on the former MTV reality series The Hills. At one point, the series, which aired from May 2006 through July 2010, followed the life of her former friend and housemate, Lauren Conrad, then later followed Kristin Cavallari, another friend to Montag.

Growing up in Crested Butte, Colorado, population 1635, Heidi Montag is a story-book example of the small town girl making it big and living the “American Dream” in Hollywood.

Born Heidi Blair Montag on September 15, 1986, Montag attended one semester at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where she met MTV’s “Laguna Beach” star Lauren Conrad. It was Conrad who brought her onto the reality TV scene in 2005 during Season 2 of popular reality show when she accompanied Conrad back to Orange County. Her friendship with Conrad and further studies at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) led to a featured role in the spin-off reality show, “The Hills.”

After leaving FDIM in the fall of 2005, Montag began working at event production company, Bolthouse Productions. Over the course of two years, she was promoted to event planner, met the love of her life, Spencer Pratt, and got fired and re-hired – all of which was caught on camera. Montag recently completed her sixth season of “The Hills.”

In addition to her career in television, Montag is a musician, fashion designer, aspiring actress. In April 2009, Montag debuted her fashion line, Heidiwood, at the Hollywood and Highland shopping center fashion show in Hollywood, California. She collaborated with producer David Foster on her first single “Body Language” which was featured on her debut LP titled “Superficial” release January 15, 2010.

During The Hills, Montag began dating then-cast member Spencer Pratt. In November 2008, the couple eloped in Mexico, though they later married in the United States in April 2009. In July 2010, Montag filed for divorce, after fifteen months of marriage to Pratt. However, the couple later called off the divorce.

Starting in 2007, she engaged in a financially unsuccessful music career.
