Is The Hills ending with season 5?

In the new issue of Seventeen magazine, Lauren Conrad talks about boys, what she’s learned about relationships, and breaks the news that the next season of her “reality” show The Hills will be her last. She and the rest of The Hills gang have recently been seen filming scenes for season 5 in Hawaii, with everyone in a bikini except for Lauren. My big question is, how is she still relevant?

“I think there was a time when I let a guy, if not several guys, walk all over me — which I would never let happen now,” she tells Seventeen magazine for its April issue. “I’ve grown to realize you can’t allow yourself to be a victim.”

Unlike her past romances with Brody Jenner and Jason Wahler, Conrad has kept her current relationship with actor Kyle Howard away from the cameras. In fact, the fashion designer won’t even officially call him her boyfriend. “He’s a friend,” she tells the magazine. “I’m a fan of labels, but girlfriend doesn’t always look good on me. Ha!”

MTV star is a label she won’t have for much longer: Conrad tells Seventeen the show’s upcoming fifth season (season 4 bonus episodes will premiere in March) will be her last.

“My biggest thing with the show was that I wanted to walk away from it while it’s still a great thing,” she explains. “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.’ ”

Considering that most of the show, as well as its precursor Laguna Beach, consisted of blank stares, makeup artists off-screen, and a lot of self-pitying, I’m surprised that Lauren thinks she learned anything at all. Still, the fact that her new real-life boyfriend isn’t in the show might be a step in the right direction.

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag must be pissed that Lauren has decided to leave – those two are happy wherever there are cameras. But like it or not, without Lauren, there’s no show. Some producers from the show have even expressed that they don’t know whether the show will go on without her. There were talks for some time of giving the couple their own TV show, but as their star is slowly fading, it probably doesn’t seem profitable to the suits at MTV. You can bet, though, that there will be some sort of special on their (real) wedding – or breakup. Look forward to lots of nuptual drama.

    He’s clenching her butt in the top picture. Creeeeepy

    Those are the creepiest pictures ever of that couple. And no they aren’t relevant to the show anymore. But Spencer is pretty much 80% of the drama on that show, so of course they will keep them on there.

    ewwww, LC is so lame, “I’m a fan of labels, but girlfriend doesn’t always look good on me” rossum! she is so cheese

  4. HEB says:

    Those pictures look like they’re from a 1988 Sassoon add.

    Speidi are hilarous though, I totally get their schitck.

    I could see Heidi and Spencer getting their own reality show. I’m pretty sure the only reason people even watch The Hills is to see Heidi and Spencer since pretty much nothing goes on in Lauren’s life…based on the show at least. I mean Heidi and Spencer love being famous and they know what they are doing (playing things up and such). I mean if they gave a reality to show boring Whitney I would think Speidi would get one too.

    I’m so sick of those little twits making Orange County look like a bunch of vapid bottle blonde girls with an overabundance of money.

    There are good, decent, hard-working people in Orange County who get overshadowed by these little celeb-wannabes.

    Laguna Beach is on the OUTSKIRTS of Orange County. Pfft. And if we could, we’d break the connection.

  7. Blah Girls says:

    this trailer def makes it looks even more fake and acted out, but the hills is still one of my faves! cant wait til spring!

  8. CB Rawks says:

    Oh Man! I used to love Kyle Howard! Now I have to lower my esteem for him a huge bunch of notches and just feel disillusioned.

  9. Wonder Woman says:

    seriously… how did this show go up to season 5?
    Isnt it jsut about a bunch of of rich kids bitching about their life?

  10. nuckingfuts says:

    Why is it that in every photo op, Heidi has to show all her BIG purses. Is she trying to show off? Her purses are just OK.

  11. Obvious says:

    @Annie the Hill is in Hollywood. Ya know the Hollywood HILLS? Laguna Beach was in Orange County-speaking of The O.C did nothing to help the “spoiled little rich kids” image. (i’m not bashing Orange or anything, I love it there and am moving there in the next few months)

    And FINALLY SPEIDI is about to die. All my hopes, dreams, prayers and wishes have been answered. Tiem to focus on something new…how about the government doing somehting about the mess known as Octomom…

    This show is so fake!

    Heidi used to be SO PRETTY in season 1. Now, she looks like a used-up Barbie doll.
    She really effed up her face and hair…
