After not succeeding with MTV, it seems Lauren Conradis ready to try try again.
A little over a week after MTV announced it was scrapping Lauren’s new untitled reality show, UsWeekly is now reporting the show might still find its way to the small screen, via another network.
The 25-year-old The Hills alum told UsWeekly that other networks have expressed interest in her show.
“The amount of offers I’ve gotten has been very flattering,” said Lauren while celebrating her birthday at Pure nightclub in Las Vegas on Saturday. “We all worked really hard on it and I’m really proud of it. It turned out fantastic, so stay tuned.”
The proposed show was reportedly scrapped by MTV due to a lack of drama as the network wanted Lauren to reveal more of her personal life on the show, something she did not want to do. Lauren said in a statement that she gave MTV the show that all parties agreed to — a drama-free look at her life as a fashion designer.
As of the moment, Lauren is keeping busy with her Paper Crown clothing line.
TELL US – WE ASK AGAIN, A REALITY SHOW ABOUT LAUREN’S WORK LIFE: YAY? NAY?
MTV announced today that they will not be airing Lauren Conrad’s planned new reality show, and she is none too happy about it.
In you recall, MTV confirmed last September that the Laguna Beach and The Hills alum would be the focus of a new reality show based on her professional life as a fashion designer. Fast forward to today and it seems the network had a change of heart.
“We decided not to go ahead with the show,” MTV’s head of programming David Janollaritold Entertainment Weekly. “She did do a pilot. There were talks about whether we could somehow manage to put together a special based on that footage but that’s also a big question mark based on her interest in that and the finances.”
Following that statement by MTV, Lauren then fired back in her own statement to UsWeekly, insinuating that MTV wanted the show to include more of her personal life, which was not something she wanted to do. Lauren also feels MTV underestimated how “savvy” her fans were.
Lauren’s full statement – “We sold a show to MTV, filmed it and are really proud of the final result. MTV felt the subject matter was too high brow for their audience and offered me the opportunity to change the show by incorporating more of my personal life. We agreed going into the project that this show would be an aspirational one, focusing on my career and my goals and not my personal relationships. We delivered the show that we sold and are sorry MTV didn’t feel their viewers were savvy enough to appreciate it.”
TELL US – A SHOW BASED SOLELY ON LAUREN’S PROFESSIONAL LIFE: YAY? NAY?
If you recall, following Audrina Patridge’s elimination on Dancing With The Stars, mom Lynn came out of LA restaurant to talk to Paparazzi, during which she referred to Lauren as a “tramp” and a “bitch,” stating that Audrina’s upcoming reality show would fare better than Lauren’s. Lynn has since apologized for those comments.
UsWeekly caught up with Lauren this week during which they asked whether she thought of Audrina’s new show as competition. “I think it’s good for her. And no, I really don’t think about it like that at all,” responded Lauren.
And when it comes to Mama Patridge’s comments, Lauren attempts to take the high road, simply stating: “I really don’t have a comment on that right now, thanks.”
While Audrina has also yet to publicly discuss her mom’s comments, In Touch Weekly alleges that her mom’s comments might actually be an echo of the way Audrina really feels about Lauren.
According to the article, which claims the former two BFFs have been torn apart by fame, Audrina is reportedly sick of playing second fiddle to Lauren. “Lauren always talks about her books, her style and her life. It always has to be about her,” reveals an insider.
The mag also claims that Audrina never fully recovered from the rumors that Lauren once hooked up with her ex Justin Bobby and “has had bad feelings about Lauren ever since.”
Meanwhile, a source tells the mag Lauren was “pretty shocked” about Audrina’s mom’s rant. “Her mom spilled the beans about how she really feels,” says a friend of Lauren’s. “Now Lauren doesn’t think they were ever really even true friends.” Audrina has admitted in a previous interview that she hasn’t spoken to Lauren since the Hills finale.
TELL US – WHO’S REALITY SHOW ARE YOU MORE EXCITED ABOUT? LAUREN OR AUDRINA’S?
Following Audrina’s elimination on Tuesday night, the Patridge family hit up a LA restaurant for dinner, during which things took a shocking turn when, after “three glasses of wine,” Lynn decided to come outside to speak to the paparazzi.
“When one door closes another one opens,” slurred Lynn. “Audrina is going to f—ing rise. She’s got class. You know why? She’s a Polish, Catholic, f—ing full-on Italian. Not only that, she was raised right. And I don’t give a s–t. It’s all American.”
But it only got worse folks as Lynn, who will be starring on Audrina’s upcoming reality show on VH1, then went on a rampage against Audrina’s former Hills co-star Lauren Conrad.
“We’re going to f—ing smoke, especially Lauren Conrad’s pissy a– little fashion s—. That bitch wants to bring it on? Let’s go!” Oddly enough, Lynn acknowledged during her rant that Audrina, 25, would “be so pissed” if she realized Lynn was talking to paparazzi. But that didn’t stop her. “I’ve had it. I’ve been a celebrity mom eight years through this Hills bulls–t, but Audrina’s going to the next level, baby,” she explained. “F—ing Hills girls — Hills tramps! My baby’s a star! She’s the only one that has some class and I don’t give a f— about it.”
Lynn then issued a statement yesterday apologizing for her behavior. That statement is below –
“I am sincerely sorry for the negative things I said in the heat of the moment. As a mother, there is no pain in this world like seeing your children upset. I am so proud of my daughter and all she has accomplished on Dancing with the Stars. I was extremely emotional after her elimination — it just came as such a shock. I want to apologize for offending anyone.”

Following two painful seasons of The City, the show will not be returning for a third.
MTV officially confirmed the cancellation news on Monday just hours after Whitney Portappeared on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM radio show. “As of right now it doesn’t really look like we’re doing it anymore,” stated Whitney.
“‘The City’ will not be returning to MTV for season three,” an MTV spokesperson said. “Whitney has been a part of our family for many years and we wish her and the cast the best, and hope to collaborate with them again.”
Whitney, who currently has her own fashion line, seems to be taking things in stride and already has plans to move on. “I’m working on some other things,” she told Ryan. “It’s OK — one door closes and another opens.”
The City began as a spin-off from “The Hills,” which was one of MTV’s highest-rated reality shows of all time. This news doesn’t come as a major surprise though as The Hills was also canceled this year, and the ratings for The City just never matched the success of The Hills.
Former Hills’star Lauren Conrad is finally confirming that she is indeed working on a reality show.
Lauren confirmed the news on Friday to The Hollywood Reporter. The new reality series will follow the 24-year-old fashion designer as she creates a line of evening wear and launches her label. The show is set to air on the MTV network, which was also home to her previous reality shows — Laguna Beach and The Hills.
“I’m so excited to take on this new project that really focuses on my true passion,” Conrad told THR. “I’m happy to be partnering with MTV because I have had such an amazing relationship with them and love being a part of the network.”
Lauren stresses that the show will be based her professional life and not her personal life, citing that her actor boyfriend Kyle Howard “will not be on it.”
Lauren also tellsRyan Seacrest on his radio show that she will start filming in October.

First, the Hills couple claimed to be getting a divorce, then Spencer claimed he was planning to write a tell all, only to reveal a couple of days later that he wanted to sell sex tapes of Heidi, and then added the next day that Heidi had a sex tape with Playboy playmate Karissa Shannon.
Thanks to RadarOnline, TMZ and E! News, we can now break down the many lies of this attention whoring couple.
Lie #1 – Their separation and divorce. RadarOnline reports the two continue to reside together in the same Malibu house, and have been staying together all summer. TMZ also posted a video of the couple as they were busted spending time together in Costa Rica this week.
Also, TMZ is reporting today that Spencer wants to work things out with Heidi, who is shockingly open to the idea of reconciling with her husband. You know, because when your husband is planning to write a tell-all book about you, and sell your sex tapes, the next thing to do is to try to reconcile.
Lie #2 – The sex tapes. Spencer claimed last weekend that he has a library of sex tapes featuring Heidi, and even met up with Vivid owner Steven Hirsch to try to sell the sex tapes. Problem? No one has seen the sex tapes, not even the porn company that wants to buy it. E! News reported last night that sources tell them the sex tapes do not exist and that Heidi and Spencer might be in Costa Rica in an attempt to actually film the sex tapes.
RadarOnline also states the obvious, which is porn companies need the signed consent of all parties involved before they can release a sex tape. So Heidi’s act of being distraught and crying is just an act. The tapes cannot get out without her consent.
Lie #3 – The reason Heidi’s staying out of the limelight. The official reason given for Heidi’s absence from the public eye in the past few months is that she is focusing on her non-existent career. RadarOnline reports the real reason is so that photos sales of her would generate more money if the market isn’t saturated with images of her. Heidi even skipped out on the candlelight vigil of her plastic surgeon Dr. Frank Ryan, which was reportedly held less than a mile away from her Malibu home.
And in true form, Heidi is appearing on this week’s cover of Life&Style magazine telling a sob story of her fear of her nose falling off, and her regret of her plastic surgeries. She even takes the time to exploit the recent death of her plastic surgeon, saying she’s feels trapped in her body because Dr. Ryan was the only surgeon who knew her body. “There’s just no fixing it,” she says. “Dr. Ryan knows the work he did, he knows everything.”
With that being said, Reality Tea will now take a break from writing about these two famewhores. Unless an actual sex tape is released, or a real authentic confirmed story, not made up by them, is in the press, there will be no more stories about Speidi’s lies and scams.
Just a day after breaking the news about the sex tapes, TMZ is now reportingSpencer Pratt is asking for $5,000,000 to release the tapes, yes tapes as Spencer claims he has an entire library of them. Spencer also told a friend that the alleged tapes “make Kim Kardashian look like an amateur.”
And previously reported, the alleged tapes feature Heidi before and after she had her numerous plastic surgeries. As for the $5 million asking price, the head of Vivid tells TMZ he doesn’t think the amount is “an unreasonable price.” It’s also been widely reported in the past that Kim Kardashian received $5,000,000 for her infamous sex tape.
The biggest shocker involving the sex tape news however comes today as TMZ reports one of the sex tapes includes lesbian sex with Heidi and Playboy Playmate Karissa Shannon.
A “source” tells TMZ Spencer discovered the girl on girl tape while moving out of the Malibu home he shares with Heidi. Even more shocking, Karissa, former star of E! network’s The Girls Next Door, admits a lesbian sex tape with Heidi does indeed exist, and she tells TMZ she will sue Spencer is the tape ever comes out. Right….
If these tapes do exist, all parties involved are all in cahoots. Several media outlets have already called the Speidi divorce nothing short of a publicity stunt. And oh yeah, Spencer and Heidi have since taken to calling each other names on twitter.
