MTV confirms reports that Lauren Conrad's new reality show is dead

Getprev-3 Apparently, Lauren Conrad's fashion line is not as interesting as her love life or her dealings with frenemies.

After filming the pilot, the network decided that the "Laguna Beach" and "The Hills" star would not get her own show, Entertaimnent Weekly reported Friday. Described as an aspirational documentary about her professional life, the show did not fit the brand, an MTV spokesman confirms.

"We love Lauren," the network said in a statement. "This particular project didn't work out, but she is a huge part of the MTV family and we hope to work with her in the future."

MTV may still produce a special from the footage if Conrad is up for it. But by the sounds of a statement she issued, it doesn't sound like it.

"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.”

Yeah, professionalism and (self) respect isn't part of MTV's branding. If you sell yourself out, have no integrity and be willing to have gratuitous sex, then you're a part of the MTV family.

Being Lauren's number 1 fan, im disappointed in MTV. Her fans are savvy and appreciate her show without all the personal life stuff. Lauren will come back somehow and prove them wrong:)
