Despite announcing a new career in cyber security, fans of MTV's "The Hills" will still see Spencer Pratt up to his usual tricks and shenanigans when the reality show returns this spring.
On Monday, Spencer announced his new career in the war on tech terror as a founding member of American Defense Enterprises's Cyber-Secuity Division, but a rep for MTV told Access Hollywood that Spencer would be still be mixing it up with wife Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge and Kristin Cavallari.
"Spencer will still be a part of 'The Hills' Season 6 which will air this spring," a MTV rep told Access.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the reality star, known for his flesh-colored beard and love of new age crystals, said President Barack Obama inspired his new career with American Defense Enterprises's Cyber-Secuity Division.
"In the last few months, I, Spencer Pratt, have discovered a new passion and new purpose to my life. With this in mind, I have decided to take a break from my obligations to MTVs 'The Hills' and discontinue filming any more episodes for this current season," Spencer said in a statement to Access Hollywood on Monday. "Upon learning of President Obama's declaration that the 'cyber threat is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation' I have decided to refocus my energy and devote my full resources to helping America face this and other unprecedented challenges."
In related news, Spencer's wife, Heidi Montag, fired Spencer as her manager last week. The starlet, who underwent 10 plastic surgery procedures in January, hired psychic Aiden Chase to oversee her career. She even declared that "Speidi" is no more.
