As devastating as it sounds, Lauren Conrad almost quit The Hills over her feud with costarâ€”and former best friendâ€”Heidi Montag.
â€œI actually came dangerously close to not doing season three, because I really didnâ€™t want to do the show with Heidi and Spencer,â€ Conrad tells Seventeen magazine in its October issue. â€œIâ€™m not who they are. I donâ€™t stage my own publicity. I just kind of live my life and do my job, and I donâ€™t want to be grouped with them.â€
Lucky for Hills fans, MTV persuaded Conrad to return, despite the networkâ€™s insistence that Heidi and her boyfriend Spencer Pratt stick around.
Though MTV prevailed, Conrad has managed to stay out of all of Heidiâ€™s scenesâ€”except for one. In the latest episode, Lauren and former beau Jason Wahler bump into Heidi and Spencer at new Hollywood hotspot Ketchup. Sooo awkwardâ€”but it made for good TV, which is probably exactly what those pesky MTV producers planned.
