While we like when celebrities come out for gay rights, we have to raise a skeptical eyebrow at Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt’s pledge of support for same-sex marriage.
Some of you may recall the couple – who are famous for no particular reason other than that people like to trash talk them – endorsed John McCain’s presidential campaign.
That said, it should come as no surprise that Ms. Montag echoes Republican running mate Sarah Palin’s “choice” perspective. Said Montag to Marc Malkin: “I think it’s your own choice. I think, you know, whoever you decide to marryâ€”boys, girls, whatever you likeâ€”it’s up to you.”
Meanwhile, Pratt chalks his inclusive attitude to his girlfriend’s “glam squad:” “Heidi’s hair and makeup people are my favorite people in the world and they happen to be gay. So if they wanna go marry each other, good for them.” Well, at least it’s better than nothing, right?
