Everyone’s favorite couple, Spencer and Heidi Pratt, visited The Today Show this morning for a brief chat with Al Roker and, true to form, they were able to mine some controversy out of it. In the tame clip below, Roker asked Speidi a few pointed but valid questions about their despicable/delicious behavior on I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here — like whether they were proud of the actions, and whether they actually thought they were tortured on the set of the show. Again: valid questions. Roker was calm, if a bit antagonistic, but certainly, it was nothing extraordinary.

Well, poor Heidi subsequently responded to the “abuse” by speaking out on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show: “To be honest, I would never be interviewed by that man again….Ireally would advise women especially to be careful around him, becauseI feel like he definitely came and attacked me, and I did notappreciate that at all.” Can we all just pause and reflect how ridiculous that statement is? Roker, essentially a walking, talking fuzzy teddy bear, is apparently a danger to women. Come on!

Anyhow, Roker responded via Twitter with the following: “Heidi and Spencer are an interesting couple. famous for…beinginfamous. Bad and vacuous behavior. I think we’re at minute 11 of their15.” Amen! Personally, I was hoping we were at minute 14:59 instead of 11.

Who else has had more than enough of the sad phenomenon that is Spencer and Heidi Pratt? Or do you think Roker was a little too harsh on the couple?
