LA has a diverse cast of characters. Whether it's the characters with stirring stories or interesting occupations or the people who are just simply characters, this town has them all. In an effort to get to know some of those characters a little better, we've created "Seven Questions with..." If you have a suggestion for a future Seven Questions subject send us an email.

This afternoon's subjects are Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt (see this morning's Seven Questions about a new Venice coffee table book)

Heidi and Spencer, also commonly referred to as Speidi or the EOWC (End of Western Civilization), can be seen Monday nights on MTV blurring the lines of reality on The Hills, which just recently kicked off its fifth season. Outside of their "work" on The Hills, Heidi and Spencer are busy pursuing other endeavors and tweeting all about it along the way. Thanks to their rapid fire Twitter updates, I've gathered that Heidi is, among other things, working on an album, (pop music, in case you needed to ask) while Spencer is busy responding to pretty much everyone who sends him a reply and finding time to manage an MMA fighter named Kevin Casey.

After two postponements, more than four hours of sitting by the phone (I'm patient) and an accidental hangup on my part (I'm also clumsy), Heidi and Spencer (or should we say the characters that are "Heidi" and "Spencer") finally spoke with LAist. Speidi (but mostly Spencer) and I talked about every thing from The Hills, which Spencer called a show "grounded in reality with real people and not the facade of fame that surrounds those real people who are in the cast" to Barack Obama with a little bit of the economy, music, AIG and Dr. Drew in between.
