US Weekly has our first look at the upcoming cameo that Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, collectively known as Speidi, will be making on an episode of the hit CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother. The ep, slated to air on January 12, will feature Speidi on the cover of a fictional weekly tabloid magazine called Them before they actually come to life on the show. Here is a pic of HIMYM star Jason Segal (who plays Marshall) with his copy of Them magazine featuring Speidi on the cover:
Usmagazine.com has your first look at newlyweds Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt on the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother. In the episode (airing Jan. 12), the two appear on the cover of a magazine — titled Them Weekly — and eventually come to life. They tease Marshall (Jason Segel) as he desperately searches for a peaceful place to read the magazine while at the office. Their episode also features newly engaged Kendra Wilkinson and Kim Kardashian. Said Kardashian, “I really had a great time and hope this opens up other opportunities for me in the acting world.”
Um … if this cameo ep leads to “other opportunities” for Kim Kardashian to act then I will call for an immediate removal of this show from the television airwaves — period. But I digress … you gotta love that the coverstory headline on this copy of Them magazine reads “Heidi & Spencer: Hey everybody, we’re on How I Met Your Mother”. Talk about your art blending into reality and vice versa. While I sincerely doubt that these cameos will be as well-received as, say, Britney Spears‘s cameo appearances on the show earlier this year were you gotta commend HIMYM for keeping their fingers on the pulse of what’s hot. Like it or not, these reality TV stars are all the rage these days … there’s some bit of genius in interjecting some of their appeal into a traditional sitcom. What do y’all think … are y’all looking forward to seeing these folks on How I Met Your Mother?
