In August, the star of The Hills: New Beginnings was asked during a live taping of her podcast, “With Whit,” about her relationship with LC, and her answer may surprise fans of the former Teen Vogue besties.
“We haven’t [kept in touch],” Whitney told Us Weekly in an interview during the taping. “We spoke, honestly, the last time right around when our sons were born [in 2017]…They’re, like, three weeks apart. So we talked around then, but haven’t chatted since then.”
The revelation may be disappointing to fans of the OG Hills, but Whitney further clarified her relationship with Lauren during another episode of her podcast last month.
“Here’s what I’ll say,” she spilled during a Q&A about the MTV reboot. “Lauren and I, if we were to see each other, we’d be so excited to see each other and we’re always friendly and we’re always rooting for each other. But we don’t keep in touch; I don’t talk to her on a daily basis…So for all you guys wondering if we’re still friends, we’re friendly for sure and will always be an important part of each other’s lives because of our roots, but we do not keep in close contact.”
While Whitney and the majority of the original Hills cast are back in front of MTV’s cameras, Lauren chose not to return for the reboot of the show made her famous, opting instead to focus on her thriving lifestyle brand, multiple fashion lines and growing family. (The star, who married rocker William Tell in 2014, announced in April that she’s pregnant with the couple’s second child.)
As for what her fellow Teen Vogue alum thinks of the new version of The Hills — which recently scored an early second season renewal from MTV — Whitney didn’t have any insider knowledge to share.
“I don’t [know]!” she told Us Weekly. “I’d be curious to know, but I don’t know.”
