The latest issue of UsWeekly magazine reveals that despite being close during The Hills, Lauren, 25, and Whitney, 25, are now at odds with one another.
“That was always a friendship for the show more than anything,” says an insider. “They are like any work friends who no longer work together.”
So what is the reason for the rift between the former pals? “Whitney is upset because she thinks that The City was canceled to make room for Lauren’s new reality show,” the source tells US. “Whitney feels like she got the shaft.”
The source adds that Lauren’s other former costars – with the exception of her roommate Lauren “Lo” Bosworth, 24 – consider her a foe, including Audrina Patridge, 25.
“The other girls were always jealous of Lauren,” says the source, adding that now that MTV has dropped LC’s show, “I’m sure Whitney and Audrina are loving this.”
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.

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.”

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.

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.”

The douchebag nutjob famewhore known as Spencer Pratt decided to don a ridiculous old man disguise and try to crash the Hills‘ finale afterparty that he and his wife Heidi Montag were not invited to on Tuesday night.
UsWeekly reports Spencer stood outside the Roosevelt hotel (where the afterparty was taped) surrounded by the show’s puzzled fans. Spencer, alongside Emilio Masella, ex-boyfriend of Jersey Shore‘s Snooki –whom he’s developing a dating reality show for– were eventually escorted from the hotel property by Security police.
“I wasn’t invited to that party, so I’m having my own party with the people on the Hollywood Walk of Stars!” Spencer 26, later told Perez Hilton. He added: “I spend a lot of time being hated and I feel like I want a little closure.”
The Roosevelt hotel insiders also tell UsMagazine that Spencer tried to buy drinks for the entire bar at the hotel that afternoon — but his card was declined. And 50 seconds remain…
In other Hills news, the show is receiving a ton of criticism over it’s final scene in the finale episode. The finale scene had Kristin Cavallari say a tearful goodbye toBrody Jenner, before it’s revealed that it was all shot on the back lot of a studio, implying that the show is indeed fake and scripted. As the camera pans away, the set comes down and Kristin jumps out of the car and rushes to hug Brody.
The hollywood ending now has some fans wondering if any part of the show was even real. Photos of the cast from the finale party below.
