Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag were at the top of their game in 2008. But when The Hills ended, things took a turn for the worst.

In a new interview with Vice's Broadly, the 32-year-old reality star opened up about his time on Lauren Conrad's show, and equated the series' end to the 9/11 attacks.

"[The Hills getting canceled] was our 9/11," he said.

Within six months of the show's finale, Heidi and Spencer (who got married in April 2009) blew through all of their money living in Costa Rica. Now, they reside in Spencer's dad's vacation house, where they spent the rest of their money on an expensive security system.

"Nobody wants to break into our home anymore," he said. "They google our net worth and see we are worth $10.”
