MTV has come out denying news that Lauren Conrad was filming some fake scenes for their hit show The Hills. Lauren announced her departure from the Hills earlier this year, and according to reports, she stopped filming for this season in March.
Well the problem with that is filming is still going on for the other cast members, and they need to get enough footage of Lauren to last through the entire season. So what do the producers do? Well according to NY Daily news, their solution included taping as much LC as they could before she left for good. Which included taping fake scenes for the show. “The producers would make Lauren react to a lot of potential scenarios, because they’re not yet sure how the finale will play out with the other characters,” says the source. “They would literally give her directions like, ‘Now react to Stephanie Pratt being pregnant!’ Lauren would just giggle and go for it. She also had to pretend to react to a fake story line about Audrina and Brody hooking up.”
The rumor of the Hills being fake has been rampant for the past few seasons. And it’s quite easy to believe considering some of the dialogue and well Spencer & Heidi. A rep for MTV denied the story saying, “We couldn’t cut a show with Lauren’s fake reactions.”
Heidi Montag has some choice words for her hills costar Lauren Conrad. In a new interview, the attention whore Hills star spoke out on Lauren leaving the show. “We don’t need her,” she tells MTV News. “We’ll miss her. I just don’t know if we need her.”
Heidi goes on to say she wasn’t surprised at the news of Lauren leaving. “She’s gotta leave the dramas to the pros! I love The Hills and I definitely don’t want to go anywhere anytime soon. That’s my home and I’m so grateful to be on it, so we’ll see.”
As the 5th and perhaps the last season of MTV The Hills is set to premier on April 6th, Lauren Conrad discusses leaving the show and what she thinks of Audrina Patridge‘s new reality show.
On leaving the show – “I actually thought last season was going to be my last, [But] the producers wanted to hopefully give the show some sort of closure and needed one more season. I didn’t have that much conflict in my life over the last few months.” She adds, “I think I only cry in one episode.”
On Audrina’s new show – “To be honest, I really haven’t heard that much about it. She has a pretty interesting life. She’s a really cool girl. She’s fun to watch.”
On the heels of the revelation that Lauren Conrad will be leaving The Hills after this 5th season, is news that Audrina is planning to do the same!
The 23 year old Hills star has teamed up with Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Apprentice) for a proposed new series will follow Patridge’s personal and professional life. The show will be shopped around to networks next week.
Though MTV refuses to confirm anything, it is becoming more and more obvious that this will be the Hill’s final season. The other rumor is that Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag will be getting their own newlywed type reality show on MTV (Yawns). Guess if Whitney Port can get her own reality show, so can Audrina.
The latest news on The Hills is that this upcoming season will be the last for Lauren Conrad. The Hills Producer confirms that Lauren will be leaving the show after the fifth season. The reason being so that she can move forward and lead a more private life. Sounds like a smart decision as one could say the show has run it’s course.
The new season premiers on March 30th on MTV. US Weekly is also reporting that Lauren and Heidi are still working on their friendship. They quote her as saying, “I think that we basically have [reconciled] for now. We’ve worked out the problem. I think it’s good to come to an agreement that you can get along and be fine, but that doesn’t mean you can always go back to the way things were.” All we can say is good luck with that Lauren.
