Heidi Montag fires manager, hires psychic

Heidi Montag's New Psychic Manager: I Hear Dead People

Skeptics, beware: Aiden Chase knows what you're thinking, and it's not just because he's psychic.

The new manager for Heidi Montag accepts and understands that not everybody's onboard with his profession he's called a "healer and intuitive" and he's OK with that. In fact, he's in the OK business. He helps people feel better about themselves and guide their futures futures, he says, he can often see (unless sports bets are on the line). He also says he has the ability to communicate with spirits, including dead celebrities.

From PEOPLE's chat with the Malibu-based man who'll now be overseeing Montag's career instead of her husband Spencer Pratt, here are six things you need to know about Aiden Chase:
...
6. He Speaks to Spirits, Some of them Famous:

"Gene Kelly is one. He represented himself to me about a year ago. I kind of got a picture in my head of him. One of my iPods just switched to different songs, which is an interesting paranormal phenomenon, and on came a song from An American in Paris. I was like: 'Oh. I listened and paid attention,' and he goes, 'Hey, brother boy, this is Gene Kelly, I'm here to help you.' Ever since he whispers in my ear a little help. It's really an amazing, cool and beautiful thing."

Heidi who? The only Montag I ever heard of started fires, and had no power to fire managers.

Since this is the first I've ever heard of her, I'd say this is a good move. Well, assuming her goal was to get people who couldn't care less to at least hear her name once. Now, if she'd like me to Google her name, I'd suggest a porn video of some sort.

It's her second attempt - she went on record as thinking 9/11 was an inside job a few months ago. Presumably she thought that didn't make her look stupid enough. As usual, it seems one woo leads to another.

You beat me to it, Giggywig. "Who, which or what ... " is this creature, and is she (?) real?

There really is no way to improve that summary.

So Montag is also a big fan of conspiracy wackjob Alex Jones. Wow, Heidi sure can pick them.

More "energy" this, "energy" that. Code word for fake fake fake. He's also on some new NBC show, but I can't remember what it's called. I'll have to find it later.

A cleaner Branch Dividian in the works perhaps? http://www.aidenchase.com/malibuecovillage.html

Isn't that called "shuffle"?

LOL. iPods will shuffle just by shaking them a little (there is an accelerometer inside).

All change - Montag has just dumped this psychic as her manager:

Quote:
"I have decided to part ways with Mr. Chase both as a manager and as a psychic and will scrutinize my business decisions more carefully in the future.
Strangely, the psychic didn't see this coming - in fact he still denies it happened:

Quote:
However, Chase insists he hasn't been notified of his behavior or his dismissal...
Hasn't been "notified"? Surely, as a psychic, he would already know?
