Attention ultimate fight fans: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are meeting up with Al Roker again.

The celeb couple are promoting their new book, How to Be Famous: Our Guide to Looking the Part, Playing the Press, and Becoming a Tabloid Fixture, on the Today show Monday and, as Us magazine points out, “they won’t be fielding questions from Meredith Vieira or Matt Lauer — the pair will meet again with their arch-nemesis, weatherman Roker.”

“Just found out Heidi and Spencer Pratt have a new book called “How To Be Famous”. And I get to interview them,” Roker tweeted earlier today. “I wonder why. Hmmmmm.”

Roker is kidding. He knows why.

All of us know why.

Think back to last June when Pratt and Montag, fresh off NBC’s summer-long reality train wreck ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here,’ went on the Today show and received a dressing down from Roker, who was clearly embarrassed his network had not only allowed but supported their outrageously obnoxious behavior in prime time.

He said that people thought Pratt was a jerk and Mongtag an embarrassment.

Afterward, he continued to rant on his Twitter account: “Heidi and Spencer are an interesting couple. famous for…being infamous,” he tweeted. “Bad and vacuous behavior. I think we’re at minute 11 of their 15.”

Of course, he was right.

But Pratt fired back. “We were thrown off that the weatherman was even trying to talk to Speidi,” he said.

Montag said she had felt attacked and broke down into tears afterward. “I’m a young woman and you’re coming at me so mean-spirited,” she wrote.

.

It will be interesting to see whether Roker and Speidi bury the hatchet or whether the weatherman goes after them again.

Their new book, How to Be Famous: Our Guide to Looking the Part, Playing the Press, and Becoming a Tabloid Fixture, includes Heidi’s exclusive tips on “how to say I hate you without opening your mouth;” “why getting and talking about plastic surgery is a must;” and of course” how to “mesmerize the media with outrageous behavior.”

We’ll see…the clock is ticking.
