Lauren Conrad says 'The Hills' is over

Laurenconrad Get ready for the end of "The Hills."

Star Lauren Conrad has announced that this next batch of episodes — so-called Season 4 bonus episodes — will be "The Hills' " last.

"My biggest thing with the show was that I wanted to walk away from it while it’s still a great thing," she told Seventeen magazine. "I always want to remember it that way. I gave MTV a deadline and said, 'This is as long as I can do it and stay sane.'"

Good riddance! And may we never have to see any of theise minimally talented but greatly annoying people ever again.

I already miss this show, The City is not giving me what I need. I love Whitney, but she's surrounded by a bunch of idiots.

Another article I read which also referred to the Seventeen interview said there was a fifth season in addition to the season four bonus episodes.
For me, the problem with the show lately is there's not enough Lauren, largely, I expect, because so much of her life now is kept off camera - her work (designing her clothing line) and her current boyfriend.

Hi Doug, According to a conversation I had with an MTV rep this morning, there will be no fifth season. This upcoming batch, which they are calling "Season 4 bonus episodes" will be the last of the series. The other reports are inaccurate.

It's just so confusing when many other sites write "season 5", but you write "season 4 bonus episodes". I just read what you, Denise, were writing in a comment. But it's just confusing anyway, haha.

Dear Denise,
About a month ago, US Weekly had stated in their "Hot Stuff" feature that MTV could be creating a new show for Lauren Conrad if "The Hills" were to come to an end. Given all the new facts about "The Hills" upcoming season, how accurate is this? Could there be possibly something new in the works that won't be unveiled for quite sometime?
Also, What in the world happen to "The Hills"? How did this show get so off course? Who's idea was this? I know it wasn't totally Lauren's idea to refocus "The Hills" on all the Sideshow Bobs. Why would MTV kill this really potent franchise? Why couldn't MTV keep their focus on Lauren, Audrina, and Whitney like they did in episodes 301 to 319, which MTV really did a great job executing. And why would Teen Vogue want to leave such a lucrative venture, didn't they appreciate their double-digit sales?
