Oh Spencer Pratt, you always find a way to get yourself into the news. At least this time it's from a positive slant, as the former "The Hills" villain finally graduated college.

The 30-year-old originally enrolled at the University of Southern California before "Laguna Beach" premiered, but took some pretty obvious breaks to focus on his fame. He re-enrolled in 2011, and seems to have been a bit more dedicated to getting his degree since.

"Today was my last day of College @USC! Best 10 years of my life! #Trojans," he tweeted on Dec. 4. At the time, he said he just had to complete a Spanish exam to be ready for graduation.

So why the delay? "I was busy being famous!" he tells Us Weekly. "USC was so much fun, though, and you can never learn enough. Of course, I should probably have a doctorate or two at this point, but I'll take it."

And apparently wife Heidi Montag has been a great study partner over the years. "Heidi is the best, always so supportive," Pratt says. "She drives in to class with me, quizzes me with flashcards, everything. I'm a lucky man."

The couple's new reality show, "After Shock: Heidi & Spencer," premiered Monday, Dec. 9, at 10 p.m. ET on E!.
