Pissed off by the headline? Hear me out.
Everywhere you turn these days, Bristol Palin or Levi Johnston -- or sometimes both of them together! -- are making headlines for this, that, and the other. And, just when you think the media attention on them has subsided, either she or he finds a way to jump back into the spotlight -- whether it's because of a new reality show or because they're getting married or not. (Who can ever keep track?)
Palin and Johnston's constant media-grabbing is starting to remind me of another couple who is relentlessly trying to be in the public eye -- Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt. Do we have another Speidi on our hands? Here are some alarming similarities between the two couples:
Both couples are desperate to be on (reality) TV.
Heidi and Spencer liked their realty TV stint on The Hills so much, they agreed to go I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here -- which, if we're being honest here, made for some excellent TV. Bristol and Levi shopped around for a reality show focusing on their family; but, sadly, no one wanted it. In the end, however, Bristol's wish is about to come true: It was announced yesterday she'll be on the new season of Dancing With the Stars.
Both couples are in roller-coaster relationships.
Are they? Aren't they? You never can tell with Heidi/Spencer/Bristol/Levi.
They're both willing to get naked for the camera.
Both couples are woefully under-qualified for their career pursuits.
Despite wanting to be a pop star, Heidi's singing (if you can call it that) leaves much to be desired. Similarly, unless Bristol has a hidden dancing talent that we don't know about, she's in for a tough time on DWTS. The only one with less qualifications in this crowd is Levi -- who wants to be Mayor of Wasilla. Then again, what does Spencer actually do?
Which couple loves the spotlight more: Bristol/Levi or Heidi/Spencer?
