Lauren Conrad may be leaving The Hills, but as sad as that will be, her best friend forever Lo Bosworth does think the show can go on without her.
In fact, Lo thinks Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, or collectively Speidi, could probably replace the leading lady as the "reality" series' main act.
"They get great press on their own, so there's always the possibility that the show can do really well with them as main parts," Lo Bosworth told E! Online at the IS vodka-sponsored opening of new Hollywood nightspot Halo.
Lo has officially joined Team Speidi! Sort of.
Lo thinks, however, that the current season five, which debuted last Monday on MTV, may not end ALL Lauren Conrad appearances on The Hills.
"[Lauren] hasn't filmed in weeks and she's really excited about that," Lo said. "I think she'll come back for special occasions and stuff."
"But we just don't know how many episodes she'll return for or if there will be another season. It's really just all up in the air," she added.
In truth, Speidi may already be the headlining act on The Hills. His laying the smack down on Cameron was the highlight of the season premiere, and as we reported, a Spencer and Heidi wedding is supposedly planned for the finale.
Oh, and Spencer already Twittered his approval of Lo's comments, in case you were wondering. He also posted a link to a teaser for Heidi's new music video:
Awesome ... easily a 9.5 out of 10 on the unintentional comedy scale. If you're a real glutton for punishment, follow the jump to hear the full "song" ...
