'The Hills': With friends like these ...

Audrina may not be the sharpest tool, but does she really need a “friend” like Lauren?

Lauren Lauren may get to narrate “The Hills,” but I think I speak for everyone when I say the series has turned on our fair narrator, who has reverted to a sniffling, green-eyed high schooler this season. (In fact, we’re going back to calling her by her high school nickname, LC, from now on.)

So without further ado, an open letter to LC …

LC, It’s time to move on. Heidi has. (And what kind of world are we living in when Heidi is the grown-up one?) We’re over LC vs. Heidi.

How is it fair for you, LC, to befriend Stephanie, sister of your sworn enemy Spencer, who once confronted you in a nightclub in defense of her brother, but Audrina can’t reunite with Heidi? I smell a hypocrite in these hills.

What’s worse, it seems as though everyone else around you is evolving. Heidi is Ms. Female Empowerment. Stephanie, our favorite “Hills” informant, sailed her olive branch over to you while letting Spencer crash in her apartment. Whitney matriculated from Teen Vogue (albeit to more grunt work). Brody got himself a new steady. Spencer’s giving Heidi her space (for the most part). Even Justin -- “It’s time to get my priorities straight” -- Bobby has given up the belching, started showering and has gotten a new ’do.

They all make you rather dull in your 24-hour Heidi hate. Not just dull, but downright bratty. I’m pretty sure I wasn’t the only viewer who threw her pillow (or, ya know, something) at her TV set when you started moaning -- “Will you kidnap me please?” “Oh my god, I need to leave this table immediately,” -- after Heidi squeezed into your table at Goa.

After Audrina caught up with Justin Bobby on a friend-date, your first question to her was “Did he burp in your face?” Not very friend-like. You followed that up with, of course, “Seems like you and Heidi are friendly again.” Yikes.

And now that Heidi has soiled your pad by hanging with Audrina in it for a few moments last week, you want to move out? Into a house? Oh sure, you say you’re bored by your West Hollywood apartment. And yes, you did get that spanking new job as model-herder for People’s Revolution. (But seriously, Mama and Papa Conrad, you're too kind.)

Why is poor Audrina in your cross hairs? Sure, you asked her to move in with you and Lo, but not before you harped all over her “dirty” boyfriends behind her back and told Lo how much fun it would be to continue doing so when you both are her roommates.

Looks like someone other than Justin Bobby needs to get their priorities straight.

I agree 100%. Lauren is being extremely immature and childish, and needs to get over it. She should put more of her time and energy in to something a bit more productive instead of hating Heidi, criticizing who her friends date, or who her friends choose to socialize and hang out with. She seems really possesive in a I need therapy sort of way, and unfortunately for her, comes off as real brat who wants those around her to march to her beat. Almost as if it has to be her way or no way. I'm beginning to undersand why she's still single, and think that at the rate she's going she'll be 40, of course still single, and with no friends.

Why don't you al focus on your own lives and stop concentrating on The Hills cast members lives? You all know NOTHING personally about these people, so how dare you try and pretend that what Lauren or Audrina or Heidi are doing is soooo wrong! The show is edited so all of you losers can fall for their antics.

I think your all idiots. . . .
Lauren isss doing everything right.. put yourself in her shoes.. i wouldnt want my best friend being friends with some fake bitch who spread nasty rumours about me and was attached to her pathetic boyfriend .. .heidi only started talking to audrina after she found out about stephanie and lauren hanging out.. talk about being used audrina.. its so obvious.. and stephanie was only standing up for her brother before, and she apologized to lauren.. but has heidi.. no she just keeps being more immature and more of a selfish bitch like she is..
sooooooo you all are retarded for being on team heidi.. like come on..and Lauren is trying to be over it but when she runs into Heidi and Heidi tries to take Laurens place and act like an idiot.. i wouldnt want to talk to her either.. cause she is so annoying.. jesus :) yay for Lauren ! :)

I watch this show religiously but I'm getting tired of LC's childish attitude. At first I could empathize with her being somewhat neglected by Heidi, but she seriously needs to get over it, it's getting old. She is also a hypocrite and should just be quiet, but that's just me.

I agree! When the episode ended on Monday I was stumped. I called my bff to rehash it so I could figure out if Lauren likes Audrina or hates her??? Is she tired of Audrina and keeping her around because of the show? Lauren is constantly preaching about having good people around her, but she is not acting like a very good friend.

BUT! I also think Audrina's whole non-confrontational act is too much. Speak up weakling!

Please....Heidi hasn't moved on. It's all a show for the cameras. She's knows her only shot at camera time and fame is to be around Lauren. Heidi and Spencer are as fake as they come. They fight for the cameras and are all love-dovey when not on camera. Maybe you should write an "open letter" to them?

Lauren has always been classy about dealing with Heidi. She tries to avoid all kinds of confrontaion. Plus, you have attention whores (Spencer & Heidi) trying to cause scenes any chance they get. Lauren doesn't want to be friends with Heidi (you can't blame her) and Heidi just can't seem to get it. The girl is delusional. Lauren has had to learn the hard way that there are rotten people on this planet. I guess when she starts to sense sketchiness from friends, then she reacts the way she does. I dont blame her. She'll need to learn to get over it though.

I totally agree. I am so sick of Lauren and I am getting sick of the stupid show. it was always a fun guilty pleasure and now i'm so sick of Lauren i may stop watching it. I am completely on Heidi and Audrina's side now. Lauren is obviously just jealous of them both. If I were Audrina i would not want backstabbing friends like LC and Lo!

OMG..Ms.Denise you are totally right. u were indeed not the onlyy one who was throwing the pillow at the tv..i am a hills fan to the fullest and i am shocked that lauren(LC) could be such a beotch wow its like everyone is really moving on except her, i am a huge fan of everyone on the show even the tagg along guys like brody and justin bobby and that guy she was with in paris but its like being friends with lauren conrad is like its up to her to call shots in the friendship. gees first she had beef with heidi i( whom i am actually starting to root for )because heidi is actually trying to make friends with someone who obviously holds onto things forever, and next she is starting beef with audrina, what did audrina do but have her own life, so what if she was with a loser like justin bobby thats waht we girls are atracted too. NE way you better watch out LO becuz LC will find somethin wrong about you and then she'll be kickin you out. What goes around comes around, and dont get me wrong heidi is wrong for what happened but for u to become friends wit shepratt (who i like) and not mend a friendship with ms. montag is super wrong of you, i know you are a good person LC so why dont you just move on because not forgiving someone just makes you hold on to all that anger and ruin your life. i love audrina and i cant believe that u were so quick to talk ish about her saying she would invite heidi, spencer, and justin bobby to your new home wit LO, ugh that is straight shady. audrina is a good friend and i think it should be up to her not LC to choose her firends and who she wants to be wit also i really dont think audrina would do that to you LC, ugh i am soo in disbelieve with that episode and i am sorry to say that LC is truly a BRAT and i have to agree with denise.

The only reason Heidi is being "mature" and "grown up" is because she's on a break with Spencer and has no friends. She's crawling back to Audrina because she's lonely and realizes what the world is like without being attached to Spencer's side 24/7. Lauren has every right to be friends with Stephanie and not Heidi. Stephanie can't help the fact that she and Spencer share the same genes. In addition, she lets Spencer know how much of an ass he is on a daily basis. Heidi, on the other hand, dropped her best friends for a jerk who uses her for the fame. She even helped him spread rumors about Lauren. If I were Lauren, I'd have a hard time accepting someone with open arms who spread sex rumors about me and fell too easily for Spencer's spell.

Wow someone else trying to bank fame off of Lauren's life. So judge and jury, have any of you not made mistakes? Or did something dumb? Or made the wrong decision? Or stopped being friends with someone over something hurtful? Tell me, what did you do? Well you must be perfect if you feel like you can judge a "scripted reality" star. Come on people, like Xenu said there are more important things in this world and if you have so much time on your hands, do something useful with it, instead of bashing someone you do not even know.

There'e just too much drama. Drama that doesn't make any sense AT ALL. Lauren has to get over it already. Even if she just wants people to watch her, people are sooooo sick of the Heidi drama already.

Ok... I'm a huge Hills fan... And I love Lauren Conrad, but seriously, does anyone realize you are discussing a scripted show? You say you want Lauren to grow up? How about taking your own advice?

Look everyone; in my eyes LC is moving forward, and come one...Heidi? She is incredibly immature, just as she sat at the table and talked about Lauren like she was not there. LC is the more mature one, and at the end of the day it really doesn't matter becuase the whole show is scripted.

Duh. So pick a beef with the writers...because they kind of suck as of late.

Love you LC!

I agree with the points about Lauren's childish attitude. However, I think your analysis is slightly flawed since you ommited the fact that Lauren is the star of a reality show, therefore "Mama and Papa Conrad" are probably not paying for her new house, she makes a hefty sum from being an MTV star. Also, the show is completely fueled off the little drama they can drudge up, therefore the producers encourage Lauren to constantly talk about how much she hates Heidi, what else does she have to complain about?

Poor Denise, even at 35 she still stuck in high school as the fat ugly band girl that nobody liked. This article is just stupid. Everybody knows that the show is NOT REAL! Idiot
