'The Hills': Is Kristen Cavallari the new Lauren Conrad?
Rumor has it that "Laguna Beach" bad girl Kristen Cavallari may be returning to MTV to replace the soon-to-depart Lauren Conrad as the star of "The Hills." Or, you know, whatever they decide to call her show.
A rep for MTV declined comment on the matter, but the idea was addressed on the channel itself last night during "The Hills: Live After Show." Host Jessi pointed out that Cavallari was in attendance at last weekend's Spencer-Heidi wedding -- which, of course, was being documented by "Hills" cameras.
And not only that ...
"Apparently by some strange miracle she just happened to catch Heidi's bouquet," Jessi said. "Kind of convenient considering the rumor is that she will be taking Lauren's place next season on 'The Hills.' Can Kristen be the new Lauren?"
Montag told Us Weekly that Cavallari is actually the person who introduced the newlyweds at a nightclub three years ago. (Looks like "Hills" watchers owe a debt to Cavallari.)
In the meantime, MTV announced today that "The Hills" will in fact go on without Conrad -- for five episodes at least, arriving this fall. Says the press release:
MTV viewers will find out life in Los Angeles only gets more complicated as friendships, relationships and loyalties are tested like never before as “The Hills” returns this fall with more episodes of season five. Lauren has moved on, but Heidi, Audrina, Spencer, Brody, Stephanie, Lo and Justin Bobby will be back as the drama continues with fresh faces, new stories and shocking surprises. Spencer and Heidi will be newlyweds so the stakes are higher than ever before for the two to make things work.
The network also unveiled a slate of news series, and renewals for "Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory," "Nitro Circus," "Rand Jackson Presents: America's Best Dance Crew" and "Run's House."
What do you all think? Are you in the mood for more Cavallari?
