Yup, a rumor from last week has been confirmed: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are heading to How I Met Your Mother for a guest spot in an upcoming episode.
The Hills stars are on set to film their roles this week, and the episode will air in January. Series co-creator Craig Thomas joked to E! that "one of them is the Mother," but that's so obviously not true. What is true: Their part of the episode revolves around poop. How . . . oddly fitting.
Writes E!'s Kristin Dos Santos, Marshall will be lacking an appropriate place to do no. 2 at work. Then:
According to CBS, Spencer and Heidi will be playing magazine cover versions of themselves as Marshall searches for a place to "read a magazine." Speidi will taunt and tease Marshall from the confines of his current copy of Them Weekly.
Heh, Them Weekly.
Anyway, How I Met Your Mother showed it can handle big-name guest stars well with the Britney Spears episodes last Spring. But I'm curious to see whether Heidi and Spencer will draw viewers to the show — or repel them. Do you think this is a savvy move? Or does it seem risky to give these two even more exposure?
