How Much Is a Friendship Worth?

According to Pop, although Spencer didn't join The Hills ladies on the cover of Rolling Stone, he did manage put in a few words acknowledging the Heidi-Lauren riff as a major factor in the show's success. While we all know that to be true, I couldn't help but wonder what I would be willing to do to a friend just to be rich and famous.

I hope that I would never feel OK about publicly destroying a friendship for the sake of the cameras, the producers, or the viewers. And even if the girls are just acting, it seems almost impossible to not get hurt feelings. So is sacrificing a friendship just the cost of celeb status? Or are some people more willing to sacrifice for fame? Tell me ladies, how much fame or fortune would you throw away a friendship for?

I don't even know if The Hills is real. It seems scripted to me. No I wouldn't throw away my friendships. Who wants to be lonely at the top? Not me.

If it's a super-close, almost like a sister-type of friend, then I would certainly do whatever I could to keep that person in my life.

I question the friendship of these rich, spoiled girls anyway. The combination of probably not being as close as they appear to be for publicity purposes and the "I'll do anything for attention" lifestyle they live makes me think they're pretty useless friends. I could never do something like that to someone I truly cared about. Then again, I'm not splashing my overlavish life all over the television, trying to prove how cool I am-- the that's exactly what all the The Hills do. One little bit of tension practically HAS to turn into a feud because they're both trying to make themselves look like the better person in front of the national audience.

**chuckles @ pop and rp** I can play along -- I could create a single episode of viciousness toward a fair friend for a scant million, but I'd only be willing to totally wreck a significant friendship for no less than $173,000,000.

They probably hang out and are friends when the camera isn't rolling or they are just hating each other because of the show like Lauren and Kristin seemed to do. It gets good press coverage so they make more money. If they aren't that great of friends anyway why not play it up?

:ROTFL: pop - I would do the same :) duck duck goose you're definitely right. I was going to type I'd never throw away a friendship for fame. But I've gotta agree with popgoestheworld. That figure and the chance to sleep with David Beckham sounds good to me. I think my friends would understand lol

duck duck goose, I think you are right. So I'll start now. I would be mean to my best friend for the sum of 10,000,000 and the opportunity to sleep with David Beckham.

(P.S. I never watch this show, so I don't know the particulars here.)

I don't expect to read anyone listing a price (or item, trade, etc) in these comments. Isn't this one of those questions that begs a general consensus of "oh, I would never do that" -- or am I being naive?

I've never really had a GREAT friendship,just decent ones...Most of the chicks I befriended, weren't considered "real" to most women like me. They were more of associates...So do I take associates seriously? No! Most of the time they weren't even worth the chit-chat we've had...

I have an awful guilt complex. I'd have a hard time trashing someone I liked in the name of fame. However, if we'd agreed to it before and were both playing the game, I don't really see what the big deal is.

I don't think I'd be willing to throw away my best friend just so people recognized me or I made money.
