Ever since Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt eloped in Mexico last month, the legality of their nuptials has been in question. Spencer assured the press that the duo would be going through the necessary paperwork as soon as they were back from their honeymoon (or reenacting the whole lead-up to the wedding for The Hills cameras, either way). This week's episode was all about said wedding, and in the scenes from the next, it appears that Spencer and Heidi go to the courthouse to make the marriage legal.
The AP (yes, the real AP) did some investigating and found that MTV was given permission to film at the courthouse after hours and the "judge" in the scene is not any of the ones actually on their bench. Furthermore, a court spokesman said that when they do perform ceremonies at the courthouse they don't look anything like the one shown on the show.
While nothing really surprises us anymore in terms of these two, it's still a lot that they went so far as to rent out a courthouse to keep up the appearance of their marriage. What do you think, is this surprising or would you expect nothing less?
