Anderson Cooper Throws Down on Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt [VIDEO]

CNN’s silver fox may not be ready to come out of the closet yet, but that doesn’t mean he won’t brandish the bitchy.

Such was the case when Anderson Cooper’s tart tongue put the smackdown on perennial famewhores Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt last week. Adding the couple to his “AC360″ RidicuList, he started out by saying to his viewers, “If you don’t know who they are, first of all, congratulations.” (True, that.)

Speidi, as they are often called, recently told The Daily Beast they wish they hadn’t been such obnoxious famewhores, but probably only because it didn’t quite work out the way they wanted and now they’re broke and unemployable and living in a family member’s basement, which probably never quite clears of the stench of regret and melted plastic since they’re having to burn Heidi’s surgically-altered body parts to stay warm or something.

Anyway, Cooper called them “the demon spawn” of MTV’s series “The Hills” before going on to air clips of the duo on “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here,” which clearly had a very loose interpretation of what exactly a celebrity is if these two were on it. Then he did an amusing breakdown of all of Heidi’s many surgical procedures.

Watch as he unsheathes the claws:
