MTV has announced today that the 6th season of The Hills will premier Tuesday, Sept. 29, at 10 p.m. EST.
The 5th season will bring some major changes, as it will be the first season without Lauren Conrad. It will also include newest cast member and former Laguna Beach star Kristin Cavallari.
Joining Kristin will be the series’ regulars — including Heidi and Spencer Pratt, Lo Bosworth and Audrina Patridge. Kristin, who has previously admitted she was brought on the show for dramatic purposes, has promised to bring back the drama by, “Drinking, fighting, hooking up — all that good stuff!” she joked.

Lauren Conrad takes on Heidi and Spencer Pratt over their fame seeking ways in next month’s edition of Harper’s Bazaarmagazine. She also makes mention of her former BFF’s boob job. When asked why Heidi posed in September’s issue of Playboy, Lauren cleverly made reference to Heidi’s cosmetic enhancements saying, “They’re not going to pay for themselves.”
She doesn’t stop there. “I don’t call magazines and let them know about things so they can write stories,” she says of the Pratts. “There was never an incentive to keep doing The Hills so I could get into [Hollywood club] Les Deux. That was never the point. It was more to create a fan base so I can go create a business and do something I really love doing.” Lauren however goes on to say she finds both Heidi and Spencer to be very entertaining and funny to watch.
In the inteview, she mentions how her life has changed since The Hills and the price of fame. One of the drawbacks of fame according to Lauren include being unable to take part in regular activities, like having a normal relationship or planning a vacation.
“My roommate went to Europe for two months, but I couldn’t take a vacation without clearing it months and months ahead of time,” she says. “My friends all got to date guys who didn’t need to sign a release form.”
“The last three concerts I went to, I was removed by security because I was a fire hazard,”adds Lauren. “People crowd around you and you lose that whole personal-space concept.”
In the photo shoot, Laura wore a brown wig which will be donated to a young girl undergoing chemotherapy in the Detroit area.
Lauren Conrad, former star of The Hillshas a lot to celebrate nowadays. The first being her smart decision to leave the fake reality show, with the second being her book making it to the New York best seller list.
People is reporting that her debut novel, L.A. Candy, has now topped the New York Times Best Seller list two weeks in a row.
“If someone said to me five years ago when this all started that I would one day make the New York Times Best Seller list I wouldn’t have believed it,” says Lauren. “I am so honored that it is now a reality.”
L.A. Candy is loosely based on Conrad’s own life. The main character of the book, Jane Roberts, is a 19-year-old girl who moves to Hollywood and ends up as the star of her own reality show. Congrats to Lauren on her new found success.

First it was Kristin Cavallari all but confirming that MTV’s The Hills is fake. Now it’s Lauren Conrad’s turn. Lauren appeared on the View yesterday, and surprisingly admitted that the infamous apology phone call she received from Spencer Pratt was fake. She said she was not on the other line for that phone call.
Lauren was asked by Elisabeth Hasselbeck, “Did you feel like it was a sincere apology when it came from him?” Lauren smiled, paused and rolled her eyes before answering – “To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t on the other end of that call,” Conrad replied. “That was filmed, and I wasn’t on the other end. So I didn’t even know about it until [it was on TV]. So, no, I didn’t get an apology. He lied.”
So why did she agree to go to their wedding if she never got an apology?
“It’s hard to understand now, but a long time ago — years ago — we moved here together, and we were best friends, and we used to say, ‘Some day at our wedding….,'” Conrad said. “I just felt like it was a few hours of my time, and as much as I didn’t agree with it, I might some day regret not doing it.”
So basically Spencernever apologized for spreading those sex tape rumors. MTV should just go ahead and call this show a soap opera instead of a reality show. Are people still watching this show? I pretty much stopped watching a few seasons back.
The Hills star, Stephanie Pratt, talks to Us Weekly magazine this week about hating her body and her terrifying secret struggle with bulimia.
Stephanie opens up about her eating disorder for the first time, saying it was sparked by the pressure of appearing alongside her super-thin friends on the hit MTV reality show. I’m guessing the “super thin” friends would have to include Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge, Heidi Pratt, and pretty much every female that ever appeared on The Hills.
Stephanie, who is described as being 5-foot-7 also reveals to US that she began bingeing and purging after watching a scene she shot with Lauren Conrad in 2007 after first joining the cast: “I was horrified. I remember saying, ‘I can’t believe how huge I look walking over to Lauren.'”
The cover story also teases about how Stephanie once attempted suicide. Hmm, will be reserving my personal comments on this one.
Could their be a new feud brewing on the upcoming season of The Hills? Well if you ask Audrina Patridge, that answer would be yes. Audrina appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show recently, and when asked about her feelings towards Kristin Cavallari, she simply said, “I don’t like her.”
Audrina then confirmed the two had a fight the first day of filming bonus episodes of the MTV show. The rumor is that Kristin has been pursuing Patridge’s ex, Justin Bobby.
While Audrina would not reveal the details on what caused their drama, she did say, “When someone gets in my face, I have to defend myself. And, you guys, I mean, I can’t say much. They’ll show it, but I mean, all I have to say is, it’s really pathetic and desperate what people will do when the cameras are around.”
Audrina continues, “It was my birthday, and I was like, Oh, my God. Is this what we’re going to have to deal with?'”
I’m not sure why Audrina is so upset at Kristin, I mean Kristin is just doing what the Hills script called for right. Perhaps someone should send Audrina a memo letting her know the Hills stopped being “real” a few seasons ago.
MTV is making certain their top rated “reality” show will be returning for another season, even without the star of the show aka Lauren Conrad.
The folks at MTV released the following statement – “Spencer and Heidi will be newlyweds, so the stakes are higher than ever before for the two to make things work,” adds MTV. “Viewers will find out life in Los Angeles only gets more complicated as friendships, relationships and loyalties are tested like never before.”
Returning next season will be Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge, Spencer Pratt, Brody Jenner, Stephanie Pratt, Lo Bosworth, Justin Bobby and “fresh faces,” will be back, the network teases in a statement. It is rumored that one of the fresh new faces will be Laguna Beach alum Kristin Cavalleri will be one of the “new faces” next season.
