Kristin Cavallari says The Hills was fake. Knock us over with a feather.

Her beef with Lauren Conrad, however, was at least partially legit. Kristin discussed her old reality show days last night on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.

Andy Cohen asked her if her "distaste" for her former Hills and Laguna Beach cast-mate was scripted, to which she laughed loudly and shouted, "No!"

Kristin Cavallari then clarified, "I do feel like [MTV producers] put things in our heads. I mean, we were 17 and 18. They made it a lot worse than it was."

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, who are apparently still alive somewhere, recently dropped a BOMBSHELL revelation about their former MTV hit show The Hills:

It wasn't all what it appeared to be. Spoiler alert!!!!!

"I was hell-bent on being the bad-guy character on the show," Spencer Pratt confesses in a rare interview with Us Weekly. "I just got caught up in it."

Reconciled Couple

"Spencer and I never fight like that," says Heidi, who married him in 2009 but only now "changed my last name to Pratt ... that's the biggest thing in my life."

Spencer is currently focused on getting his University of Southern California political science degree, not to mention making do with less money.

Emphasis on less. Not none. He denies he's in debt:

"I'm turning down paid appearances. We don't have celebrity-sized money anymore, but we're doing fine. I'm happy to be around normal people these days!"

And he still gets to see Heidi Montag nude. If you consider that a good thing. It's not quite as fake as The Hills, but still sufficiently plastic. Like 60-70%.

As if Dancing With the Stars' ratings weren't high enough, Audrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani are prepared to really up the sensual factor this evening.

Their rumba will be "very passionate, sensual and sultry" she writes in her blog, with emotion that should feel akin to "making love on the dance floor."

Gulp. The choice of music feels a bit awkward to us, though.

RED HOT RUMBA: Get ready for it. Tonight.

In the TV-themed week, Dancing With the Stars producers picked the theme song to The Hills, "Unwritten" by Natasha Bedingfield for Audzo and Tony.

"Every time I hear that song, it really brings back all those memories," she writes. "Now I get to create a new memory, and I'll never forget this either."

Poetic. Moreover, "Tony and I are going to bring everything that on The Hills – the drama, flirtation and relationship ups and downs – into our dance."

Ever since the first reports of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt splitting up, Hills fans understandably assumed wondered if it was another big PR hoax.

Looks like it isn't.

Almost two months after the plastic princess went to court seeking legal separation from the puppet master, the reality star has filed for divorce.

Heidi Montag cites the usual "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the pair's split in a divorce petition filed in Santa Monica, Calif., Court.

"Heidi has amended her petition for separation and has filed a petition for dissolution of marriage from Spencer Pratt," attorney Jodeane Farrell said. The couple has agreed they would like their divorce to be finalized in a timely manner."

Hopefully Spencer Pratt finds comfort in his beloved crystals.

Adding that terms will be hashed out in an out of court settlement, Farrell said "both parties are amicable with each other and finalizing the divorce."

The couple staged a sham wedding in Cabo in 2008, then tied the knot for real in April 2009 at a church in Pasadena, Calif., appearing happy.

Things went downhill fast, however.

Heidi Montag underwent 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day, fired Spencer as her manager, released terrible music, accused The Hills creator Adam DiVello of sexual harassment and became estranged from her family and so on.

For his part, Spencer Pratt has grown increasingly eccentric, and even admitted to being a fame whore and choosing his "career" over his wife.

Heidi Montag then and now. Enough said.

He echoed that sentiment yesterday to People.

"I love Heidi but our marriage was a show – it was part of The Hills world," Pratt said after the divorce filing. "That world is on a sound stage."

Referring to himself in the third-person, he adds: "It's clear that reality TV-fame-loving Spencer Pratt does not fit with my ex-wife Heidi Montag's ambitions for a motion picture actor/pop star career and being a single sex symbol for the world."

"Some say if you can't handle the heat get out of the kitchen, Well, Heidi couldn't handle King Spencer's fame so she got out of the marriage."

Right. So basically, his stardom is just too enormous. Makes sense.

Given their history, Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad may never be BFFs. But The Hills stars aren't exactly feuding, either. The two are "cool," Kristin says.

The two Laguna Beach beauties famously dated the same guy, Stephen Colletti, on the hit MTV reality show that spawned The Hills, which starred Conrad.

In a hilariously contrived move, Cavallari replaced LC as the protagonist and "narrator" of the series in 2009, when she decided to leave after five seasons.

Following The Hills series finale this week, the two reunited along with the whole cast, past and present, at the live after-show bash at the Roosevelt Hotel.

Despite what some think, the two don't hate each other at all.

A rare joint Lauren Conrad-Kristin Cavallari photo op!

"I saw her at the wrap party on Saturday and we caught up," Cavallari said at the after-show party, explaining that they're now cordial, but that's about it.

"We are not going to lunch together and I don’t have her phone number, but we are cool," adds Cavallari of Conrad, who's kept a low profile this past year.

Both girls also dated Brody Jenner at some point.

Speaking of that guy, whose fake relationship with Kristin was a primary, bogus story line this season, he's now with Avril Lavigne - but still close to Kristin.

"Our friendship is the most important thing and I don't think that anything will ever get in the way of that," says Cavallari, who's dating Miguel Medina.

Nice to see Kristin and LC on good terms. But if you had to pick ...

With tearful goodbyes, key story lines wrapped up and a post-show appearance by former star Lauren Conrad, much fanfare surrounded The Hills finale.

But while the live after-party (click here for cast photos) celebrated the six-season run, many fans were left scratching their heads about the last scene.

Another Kristin Cavallari Bikini Pic

As Tuesday's episode drew to a close, Kristin Cavallari stepped into a waiting car destined for the airport, allegedly to catch a flight bound for Europe.

She left a tearful Brody Jenner behind, waving goodbye ... or not. The camera panned out to reveal the entire production crew, set and cameramen.

Did The Hills just punk viewers who ate this stuff up for six seasons, then rub their noses in it with an overt F-You to end the last of its 102 episodes?

That's what it felt like!

Brody Jenner and Kristin Cavallari make a good-looking fake couple.

"The thing is, as you saw at the end, what's real, what's fake, you don't know," Jenner said. "Our relationship, the entire time could have been fake. That's one of the questions: what was real and what was fake, and we left it [open]."

Kristin Cavallari said she enjoyed the way the show concluded: "I think we both couldn't have been happier with the ending. We were speechless."

The acting was pretty good, we'll admit.

Their co-star, Lo Bosworth, was equally impressed with the way The Hills finale came to an end: "You know when the last scenes of the show were happening, I got a little [lump] in my throat," she said. "They were great. I loved it."

Come on. While not every aspect of the show is fake (most likely), there's not much interpretation to do about Brody and Kristin. It was all fake, not real.

She's dating a Hills cameraman and knew full well he has been with Avril Lavigne. Which is fine, except that MTV always billed this as a reality show. Now they're admitting they script whatever they want, but with some profound point?

Please.

The entire cast of The Hills, minus the vanquished Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, but including alumni Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port, commemorated the hit MTV series' final episode Tuesday night with one last bash in Hollywood.

So much has changed between The Hills finale and what began as a Laguna Beach spinoff 102 episodes ago. But it was great to see LC back, since she started it all.

On hand were the likes of Kristin Cavallari, Brody Jenner and Audrina Patridge, along with bit players Justin-Bobby, Lo, Stephanie, that Stacie girl and many more.

After six seasons of drama, The Hills ended its run on MTV in appropriate fashion, with cameras panning back to expose just how manufactured that drama is.

More on that in a little bit.

Delux Kristin Pic

Supposedly, Kristin Cavallari is moving to Europe, because she "needs a change." Note: she never went to Europe, and she never pined for Brody Jenner. At all.

Elsewhere, Lo and Scott move in together, Audrina decided to get a new house by the beach, and Stephanie is kinda dating that guy Josh now, if anyone cares.

Nowhere to be found, except dressed like an old man outside the finale party? Spencer Pratt. Here's THG's recap of Tuesday's series finale of The Hills ...

FINAL FOUR: The female stars of The Hills at the series finale party.

Stephanie Pratt tells the girls she is happy with her life, while Audrina Patridge says she's still trying to figure hers out. When is she NOT trying to do that? Minus 4.

Brody plays golf with the guys and says he didn't realize things with Kristin would take the turn they did. Yeah, the scripts are sometimes pretty surprising. Plus 5.

Kristin tells Stacie about Brody's girlfriend and admits she's "bummed." We are too. They won't even mention Avril Lavigne by name, and he can do better. Minus 3.

Lo and Scott move in together. Cute. Plus 6, despite the obvious fact they're just looking to kill time with Stephanie and Lo, bit players for much of the series.

"Bored" Kristin tells Brody she's moving to Europe (LOL) for the summer or maybe longer (ROTFL). Naturally, she's having a big goodbye bash with cameras! Plus 8.

Not even an acknowledgment of Spencer Pratt and/or Heidi Montag, Hills? Where did they even go? Did Adam DiVello have Heidi bumped off? We worry. Minus 20.

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS PERSON? If so, contact local authorities.

Brody finally arrives and says he didn't understand her feelings. Kristin is tearful as Brody says he'll miss her. "Don't leave," he pleads. She wipes a tear away from his supposedly sad face and hugs him. Kristin even says this is a crock. Minus 34.

Audrina isn't going to Kristin's because she wants to move away from the "scene" and avoid bumping into Justin-Bobby. We'd steer clear of the stench too. Plus 7.

Scott to Lo, who he says he would marry right now: "It takes a while to find the right person and you are perfect." Minus 11. Just propose if you're serious, dude.

As Kristin speeds off, cameras focus on Brody with the Hollywood sign behind him ... but it was only a painting, later revealed to show the camera crew and staff. Then the cameras stop rolling, Kristin gets out of the limo and hugs Brody, despite the bull$h!t regarding her leaving. What a giant Eff You to fans. Plus 100.

FINALE TOTAL: +54. SEASON TOTAL: +13.

Last night, fans said goodbye to The Hills as the very last episode of the hit MTV reality show aired. We'll have our full recap of it for you in a little bit.

The sideshow taking place was an entirely different matter. To mark the end of an error era, the cast gathered for a live show broadcast in Hollywood.

Spencer Pratt? Not invited.

Unsurprisingly, the fame-hungry outcast turned up anyway outside the Hotel Roosevelt, disguised in a gray wig and beard, wrinkles and a large gut.

Pretty funny, but also sad that he's resorted to such gimmicks. Desperate for attention much? It's like a pathetic, last gasp at any kind of relevance.

It wasn't long ago that Spencer caused the commotion. Now he clamors for attention across the street while the real action takes place inside.

Spencer was escorted out by security after trying to enter.

How the mighty have fallen. We're also pretty sure that's his sidekick Emilio Masella, a.k.a. Snooki's ex-boyfriend, behind him and to his right.

Say it ain’t so ... even though we already basically knew! Kristin Cavallari confesses that the relationships you see on The Hills are - gasp - not exactly real. At all.

“Nothing you see on TV is real,” the 23-year-old tells People.

“Fans need to understand that it’s all entertainment," she adds. "It’s all in fun. I would never actually put my close friends or a real relationship on a show.”

Right ... why would a reality show be at all real. Obviously. Gotta love throwing your employer under the bus so blatantly. LeBron James would be proud.

That's basically what's going on here.

After almost a whole season in which Kristin has pined longingly for her ex Brody Jenner, she confesses that just maybe, that wasn't completely genuine.

FAKING IT: Kristin does with all the guys. On The Hills, that is.

Gee, you're kidding. Maybe we would be caught more off guard if we didn't know he was dating Avril Lavigne and she was with cameraman Miguel Medina.

There was also the whole Justin-Bobby thing from last season, which we were expected to buy, as if she would ever hang out with that loser in real life.

But we digress.

It was the "lightheartedness" that drew her back to reality TV after Laguna Beach, she says: “I was hurt by the way I was portrayed on Laguna Beach."

"So I took a break from that kind of stuff ... But when I decided to come back and do The Hills, I told myself that it’s just a job. It’s all work. It’s all fun.”

Indeed. Just don't take it the slightest bit seriously.
