The Hills is scripted and fake. This has been hinted at for months, and recently confirmed by MTV. But why should that stop Audrina Patridge from saying it's not!?
"Everything is real," Patridge told People at Les Deux last week. "[Lauren Conrad] and me are real friends. We live in our apartment. That's real, like, where we work, everything. The situations are real."
Except for, you know, the fact that The Hills stars seem to party at Les Deux every other night, which Audrina admits is thanks in part to the producers.
"I mean, the producers might be like, 'Okay, we want you to go to Les Deux tonight,' so we go. But then whatever happens, happens," Patridge said. "And they might do things to tweak it a little bit, but not our reactions... it's totally real. It's reality."
What's more, Patridge wouldn't have reunited with her current loser beau Justin "Bobby" Brescia if it wasn't for The Hills, sources close to the star say.
"When The Hills producers encouraged [Audrina Patridge] to start dating again for the show, she called Justin," said a pal in In Touch Weekly's October 29 issue. "But it's not about the show anymore." Also, Justin-Bobby sucks. Just saying.
Audrina Patride, Whitney Port & Lauren Conrad: Fake show, real hotties!
The romantic relationship between "engaged" The Hills couple Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, while nauseating, is apparently real, however.
Also legit? Spencer Pratt's feud with former best buddy Brody Jenner, who began to hang out once again with Lauren Conrad - Heidi's worst enemy.
"It's not a publicity stunt, it's very legit," Brody Jenner himself told In Touch about his falling out with Spencer. "But I wish him nothing but the best."
How nice. Lastly, reports say that there may be a major Heidi Montag and Lauren Conrad cat fight in the works... one boiling over on the season finale.
That doesn't sound fake at all.
Lauren Conrad admitted producers may "hype up" The Hills drama, however she echoed Patridge's comments that the cast members aren't "characters."
"At the end of the day, they can edit all they want, but you said and did everything that's on the show," Conrad told In Touch. "If you're a nice person, you're going to look like a nice person. If you're a mean person, you're gonna look mean."
