This May Be Pathetic, But A SPEIDI Pregnancy Pic Has Brightened My Day!

So since I’m Canadian and we had Canada Day on Saturday, July 1st and the subsequent day off for Monday-Friday peeps Monday, then July 4th in the US on Tuesday, I’m feeling a little down and depressed about how FUCKED UP this world is.

I also watched an HBO documentary, Requiem for the Dead: American Spring 2014, that was fascinating, because it told individual, specific stories rather than simply focusing on overarching statistics (which is a storytelling style I find boring and lacking impact) related to gun violence. Seeing specific stories told over and over again throughout the film against the occasional backdrop of a running tally of how many thousands of people died due to gun violence in the US during the months of March to June 2014 is sickening and I think it hints at how frightening America is. Here’s a link (click here to go to IMDB page for doc) to the IMDB description of the documentary that I strongly recommend. It will take something out of you though (or at least it did that to me), so be ready for it, since it’s not a casual night of after-work viewing. Not relaxing I shall say. I was intrigued, but left with a greater sense of hopelessness.

I needed a pick-me-up this morning. So looking at these very persistent reality TV people, who I’ve been watching since Princes of Malibu (Spencer…still can’t find this show to download and I really wish I could) and The Hills (or maybe even Heidi popped up on Laguna Beach, I feel bad for not knowing, though I shouldn’t) makes me have hope that I can’t always predict the future. I never thought Heidi and Spencer would make it in the long run (at least 10 years now) and not long enough to create a child together.

They’re a bit wacky, but aren’t we all. I guarantee they have many beliefs I find offensive, but yet beneath at all, from watching these people for so long, I can’t help but wish for their happiness and a bright future free from an obsession with very large crystals.

Placement of Heidi’s Other Hand is Everything in this Pic

It’s funny this news story has come out today because two nights ago I had a sudden craving for Speidi and The Hills was the show I had playing in my bedroom prior to falling asleep (much to my boyfried’s chagrin…no matter how hard I try I can’t get him to obsess over reality TV or even enjoy it remotely as much as I do), so it’s I’m excited to see they’re having a baby!

If I recall, even back in the day when The Hills was still airing Spencer never wanted to have a baby and Heidi was trying to talk him into it.

Well, maybe Heidi will lead us to believe things have changed (and somehow use this public front as her opinion to lock-down a new reality show over how Spencer reacts to having to share his MA-MA/wife), but if you look at Heidi’s right hand gripped like a tentacle tightly around the hand Spencer is using to create a heart over her belly there is evidence of a bit of tension (in my opinion only, of course).

Haaahahhaah! I can imagine Spencer’s old friends who see this at the grocery store (I typed supermarket first, yet I never say that out loud and I’m not an American…why?) cracking up at the thought of Spencer morphing into a totally loving, kind person as a dad.

So, it kinds of looks like Heidi’s hand is screaming,”You will love this child Spencer!” as Spencer thinks of ways to simultaneously escape the relationship and further obsess over Heidi, because she’s the only one fucked-up enough to deal with his many issues.

But I also have many issues, including a bed temper and a tendency towards paranoia like Spencer, so not only do I have compassion for Spencer’s insanity, I also want to see another Speidi reality show please! Bravo scoop them up from MTV already…or maybe there needs to be a Princes of Malibu Season 2? Brody could use the work.
