We love Us Weekly.
The venerable celebrity news publication not only breaks a lot of gossip, it makes it much more fun to follow and read. We have to give them props.
This week's cover story, featuring Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag (it's a safe bet that someone from The Hills or named Spears will be on there three out of every four weeks), is one of the magazine's finest efforts yet.
Spencer Pratt's "terrifying obsession" with the Lauren Conrad sex tape. The "war" over Stephanie Pratt. A sinister plot to "destroy" Lauren and take over her show.
Don't get us wrong. We love the show - to an unhealthy extent. But that's a tad dramatic, don't you think? This is the The Hills, right? Not Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of The Sith. Or is it? See below ....
The Hills' rivaling stars Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag, together again on the cover of Us Weekly. That hasn't happened in, like, almost a full month!
While the battle over sex tape rumors is heating up, the show will be cooling off for the summer. The season finale of The Hills is next Monday.
Rest assured, though - the 19-episode Season Four starts in August!
