Will the highly-anticipated Season 3 of The Hills - tentatively slated to air in August - be the swan song for our favorite California girls?
And Heidi Montag, too (oh snap)?
Numerous sources are reporting that Lauren Conrad wishes to retire from reality TV in order to focus on her fashion career, suggesting that the forthcoming third season of the hit MTV reality show will be its last.
Lauren Conrad, who first rose to prominence on Laguna Beach, has never expressed much interest in being an actress, despite her rise to reality TV stardom. In fact, she's commented in the past that she's quite disinterested in TV.
Could any of the mounting drama unfolding in Season 2 have something to do with LC pulling the plug on The Hills? As viewers know, her friendship with Heidi Montag deteriorated and came to a tumultuous end earlier this year.
Then, LC learned over the internet that a mystery sex tape proportedly of herself and ex-boyfriend Jason Wahler was being shopped around.
"My friend started reading the story to me, and I literally could not breathe," Conrad said of the sex tape rumors. "I thought she was joking when she started telling me."
Later, the reality star became enraged when it was believed that Montag and Spencer Pratt leaked the tape story to blogger Perez Hilton.
Countered Heidi Montag, "I feel horrible for Lauren, but I had nothing to do with spreading that false, disgusting rumor."
The tension between LC and Heidi has escalated beyond that, though. This month it was reported that Heidi Montag is so desperate for airtime and exposure on The Hills that she's been crashing scenes featuring Lauren Conrad.
"Heidi's been showing up at shoots uninvited," a source dished. "At one point, Lauren was gesturing wildly, saying she 'can't deal' with Heidi.'"
All we can say is this:
- Team LC 4-eva.
- Bring on Season 3 baby!
