Thanks to a tip-off from a friend of a friend of a friend, it came to our attention yesterday that reality TV’s most terrible twosome, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, might be opening a bar in our hometown. A quick field trip to Murray Hill and a casual chat with some Blackberry-wielding LA-types outside confirmed our suspicions–Heidi and Spencer are, indeed, in talks to open a bar in the space formerly known as The Dip at 416 Third Avenue (corner of 29th St.). But what will it be called, you ask? It seems like the couple really put their blond heads together on this one and came up with (what else?) The Hill. According to the sources, The Hill is an “upscale sports lounge,” and is slated to open next week. Readers beware, Speidi has landed!
