After not succeeding with MTV, it seems Lauren Conrad is 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 Janollari told 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.”

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 tells Ryan Seacrest on his radio show that she will start filming in October.
