Lauren Conrad is finally returning to The Hills ... right after it ends.

One week from tonight, the girl who made the MTV reality show a hit will be on hand for the Live Reunion Show after the now-sagging series mercifully goes off the air.

Lauren Conrad Smiles in Blue

The reunion will immediately follow the series finale of The Hills and the season finale of The City. Whitney Port reported the LC news, as well as her own attendance:

"I am so happy to tell you all that I will be attending the reunion, as will Lauren!" Whitney wrote on her official site. "I am so excited to see everyone and catch up."

"I am so excited to see what's next for them," the former Hills star and current City leading lady continued. "It's been so long since we have all been together."

REUNITED: For one night and one night only, next Tuesday.

What remains unclear is whether Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, exiled from the show in recent weeks without notice, will appear between now and July 13.

The gruesome twosome was featured prominently in the first part of this season, but then Spencer went haywire, they supposedly broke up in real life, etc.

It's not clear why, but there has been no explanation of their vanishing from the series. Tonight, the penultimate episode of The Hills airs, followed by The City.

The former will likely focus on Kristin and Audrina's predictably boring romantic drama. Sigh. We can only hope Speidi returns to liven things up one last time.

Last night on The Hills, the crew marked 100 episodes of the MTV show with a trip to Costa Rica, which offered both incredible scenery and crazy hookups.

It was a nice departure from the clubs and lunches we see in L.A., but make no mistake, this was still The Hills, for better or worse, just in a jungle setting.

Here's THG's plus-minus recap of events ...

Immediately after landing, Kristin Cavallari speculates on who's going to hook up on the trip. Plus 18, because that's all they do, and the reason for going.

Kristin tells Stacie that Justin-Bobby is "the one" for Audrina Patridge, but Brody isn't "the one" for her. Are you effin' serious, cue card writers? Minus 7.

When Kristin kissed bartender Will, it irritated Brody Jenner, but didn't get a real rise out of him. Plus 4, as he reacted more like someone kissed his sister.

We used to sort of root for Kristin and Brody Jenner to get back together, but after all this waffling, we're pretty much over it... not unlike Brody. Minus 3.

Wait, were McKaela Line and Allie Lutz get invited? Sucks for them! Plus 7.

Charlie tells Justin-Bobby that he needs to make a move on Audrina. Not coerced by the producers at all. Even, because he does make a move, of sorts ...

You gotta love Justin-Bobby just walking by and randomly grabbing Audrina's ass like the low-class waste of space that he is. Consistent, at least. Plus 7.

Kristin tells Stacie and Taylor (a.k.a. Sleazy T) she's done with Brody after he embarrassed her in the bar. We'll see how long that lasts this time. Minus 4.

Stephanie Pratt serves absolutely zero purpose on the show. Minus 5.

Wow, Brody and Justin-Bobby are actually really good surfers. Plus 4.

Seriously, WTF is Justin-Bobby wearing?! Who rocks a stocking cap and long sleeves in Costa Rica? Minus 8 for lowering the douchebag bar to new depths.

After he invites her out, Kristin and Will dance together in the rain. Which actually does look really fun. We think we need to go to Costa Rica ASAP. Plus 10.

The Kristin-Will thing might seem cool or romantic, but we already know Brody doesn't care, and she's dating Hills cameraman Miguel Medina, so Minus 14.

Kristin and Will kiss. Maybe she's got a future in acting? Plus 5.

J-B asks Audrina if she'll ever come back to Costa Rica. She says, "Not with you." OWNED, but Minus 4 anyway, since she'll always crawl back to this loser.

No Spencer and Heidi? Even on the 100th episode? Minus 16, because as we've said before, the show needs Speidi, and didn't even explain their absence.

Lastly, Plus 8 to push us into positive territory. Why? While a shell of its former self, The Hills still has its moments, and has given us so many memories.

TOTAL: +2. SEASON: -12.

She's dated a number of high-profile fellas, but Kristin Cavallari revealed this morning that she's dating Miguel Medina, a cameraman from The Hills.

"That's not part of the show," Cavallari said when asked about Medina. "Yeah, I'm currently dating [Miguel] and that all I'm going to say about that."

Kristin Cavallari: Short Hair

So basically, Miguel Medina's job is to film The Hills, which features his girlfriend pretending to date other guys. Hey, whatever pays the mortgage.

Hooking up came naturally, she explained.

"Well, when you're together all the time, you're close, and it just sorta happens," Kristin Cavallari told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show earlier today.

The Hills cameraman Miguel Medina gets to stare at Kristin Cavallari all day and gets paid for it. The same is true for our interns, to a lesser extent. Could be worse.

The reality star's former loves include Stephen Colletti, Matt Leinart and Brody Jenner. She also pretended to date that tool Justin-Bobby for a bit.

Along with Stephanie Pratt, Jenner and Hills creator Adam DiVello, Cavallari hyped the 100th episode, airing tonight, plus the series finale July 13.

"Everybody's kind of coming at peace with their stories we've been following," DiVello said. "A few definitely found what they were looking for."

DiVello also said that while they won't be partaking in the bogus drama, the after-show will feature former stars Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port.

This is bikini season and it's time to get serious. You can take it from The Hills stars ... people who have nothing to do except look good in bikinis every day.

Take Audrina Patridge for example. She gets her body all beach ready by drinking lots of water, eating lean protein, green leafy vegetables and fewer carbs.

"I also love shots of wheat grass," The Hills star tells Life & Style in its cover story. "When I want to kick it up a notch, then I get Sunfare meals delivered."

Other celebrities who are no strangers to showing off their bodies in bikinis, such as Brooklyn Decker, focused on "toning up" and" definition in my abs."

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover girl and wife of Andy Roddick also consumes lots of high-protein Greek yogurt and nuts to build that muscle.

Celebrity Bikini Bodies

Take it from Kristin Cavallari, Beyonce and others - there are easy ways to lose 10 pounds, burn calories while you sleep and other red hot tips for summer fun.

Fortunately, Brooklyn doesn't subscribe to that QuickTrim crap (talking to you, Kim Kardashian). Her employer actually encourages a few extra pounds:

"Sports Illustrated is never about losing weight. They encourage girls to eat cheeseburgers the night before. They love girls who are a little bit curvier."

No complaints here, although Cameron Diaz, with her lithe legs, flat tummy and sculpted arms, make us feel like we should work out one of these years.

Lately, Cameron is doing combination exercises that blast multiple muscles at once, like squats with shoulder presses, as well as various yoga poses.

Clearly it pays off!

Somebody please explain this one to us, if you don't mind.

At what point did Justin-Bobby become more than a transient figure, but a guy The Hills is based around, with Kristin Cavallari and Audrina Patridge smitten?

What is the appeal of this guy? What woman doesn't love a mysterious, shady individual morally opposed to haircuts, bathing, working or speaking coherently?

It is useless to resist.

Audrina Patridge proved again that she cannot quit him, casting Ryan Cabrera aside. Meanwhile, Kristin brought the ruckus to that psycho b!tch Allie Lutz.

Here's THG's recap of Tuesday's The Hills, "Make Up to Break Up" ...

FEEL THE MAGIC: A scene straight out of a Lifetime film.

Audrina has weighed the pros and cons with Ryan, and it's not gonna work. We're imagining her writing an actual list. Pros: Nice, rich. Cons: Hair? Minus 4.

Kristin and Lo are bummed about Audrina's feelings toward Ryan. Plus 5, because they know he deserves better and that Justin-Bobby is a waste of space.

From the moment Brody Jenner arrives at the club, Kristin and he flirt relentlessly. Hot. Plus 3, because you might as well cue the adult film soundtrack now.

Sleazy T sighting! Plus 2.

Brody says McKaela Line is crazy for bringing Allie Lutz around. Minus 8, because McKaela Line and her connection to the crew are clearly fabricated by MTV.

Allie spots Kristin across the club and tries to make amends, but Kristin calls her and their awesomely snarky confrontation almost gets physical. Plus 12.

Bitch Please

BITCH PLEASE: Kristin Cavallari will bring it, Allie Lutz. Step. Away.

Kristin shows up at Smashbox to meet Lo for lunch and is fake surprised to see McKaela there. Wow, can you BELIEVE the coincidental run-ins on this show? Plus 7.

Ryan Cabrera asks Audrina why she left his show early and she says it's just too hard for her to hear him sing, 'cause the feelings just aren't there. Weak. Minus 8.

No Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt. Again. Minus 10.

Kristin invites Justin to Audrina's b-day party for reasons unknown. Minus 5. Weren't these two supposedly together at the end of last season? That fizzled fast.

Audrina and Stephanie talk about the difficulties of relationships and the importance of honesty ... except when faking every single scene for a reality show. Plus 3.

Justin-Bobby tells Audrina he's happy where the two of them are now. Sitting at THG World Headquarters writing this, we wish we could say the same. Minus 5.

TOTAL: -8. SEASON: -14.

Cut off by The Hills, and possibly by his wife, Spencer Pratt has been left alone with his thoughts. Fortunately, he still a Twitter account on which to share them.

Without any reality show producers to worry about, the hothead returned to the social networking site after a prolonged absence, unleashing a fury of Tweets.

No one is safe.

While he did not directly address his separation from Heidi Montag, Spencer targeted Hills stars and strangers alike in a rant easily comprising 100+ Tweets.

On Lo Bosworth: “Lo has been banging 60 year old rich guys on the side to keep up her look because she only gets paid few grand and plays star HAHA.”

“I pray to see @lobosworth ugly ass out in a club now that i can do whatever i want without feeling bad for heidi! lo your [sic] f--ked! Wh-re!”

Crystals For Brains

Spencer Pratt has officially lost it.

On Audrina Patridge, who he previously accused of getting "Tijuana plastic surgery": “Audrina has fake everything. Damn we fakeass reality show foolios.”

On Whitney Port, now the star of MTV's The City: “No whitney port sucks and has ever since we were in high school together before all her surgeries.”

On Heidi's mom, Darlene Egelhoff: "it's her fake mom. ask the government! darlene lied about everything she told Heidi. she stole heidi as a baby! REAL."

Wow. Spreading the love to strangers as well, Spencer targeted a particular Twitter user from England who had been writing to him, sending replies.

“Glad we didn’t let you in America foreigner b--ch! USA is to [sic] smart for you fool. log off our American website and go do something foreigner.”

Heidi filed for legal separation from Spencer on June 8 with photographers in tow, igniting speculation that the couple was just scheming for publicity.

With Spencer absent from The Hills and real life in recent weeks, however, you have to wonder if Heidi really did up and leave the nut job for good.

NOTE: Follow The Hollywood Gossip on Twitter! We promise we won't slander you ... or at least to use proper punctuation if we're ever forced to.

Another week, another episode of The Hills that could have used a dose of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, who have just vanished from it with no explanation.

Amusingly, Speidi's real life drama is chronicled on the MTV show's official blog, despite no sign of them on the show in weeks, or acknowledgment of this fact.

Whacking Balls

In any case, the show was more of the same that we've seen in recent weeks - Allie Lutz continues to vie for McKaela Line and battles it out with Team Kristin.

Seriously, this is what The Hills has become, and alas, what it will continue to be in all likelihood. Lauren Conrad and Speidi are not walking through that door!

Here's THG's plus-minus recap of last night's The Hills ...

Once again torn between Justin-Bobby and a superior guy, Audrina Patridge talks with Lo, who asks if she'd take J-B back if he changed. No answer. Minus 14.

Justin-Bobby gets thugged out at the club - and deep, man.

Kristin Cavallari tells Brody Jenner that she warned McKaela about Allie and alleged break-in we're supposed to care about. She's so catty, it's great. Plus 7.

Allie insists to McKaela that Kristin's stories about her are, like, so totally not true and drops the classic drunk girl line: "They don't even KNOW me!" Plus 5.

Everybody heads to Les Deux later - including Justin-Bobby and Ryan Cabrera, who have the most awkward introduction ever. Plus 9, because that was real!

Justin-Bobby tells Brody that Audrina "deserves the world" and doesn't need grief. Minus 12, because there's no way he didn't read that off MTV's cue cards.

Stephanie and Max are having a nice dinner when talk turns to her estranged relationship with Spencer Pratt and her DUI arrest. Double buzzkill! Minus 9.

When Audrina suggests that the "honeymoon" is over, Ryan says "If we caught each other at the wrong time, we need to figure it out. It's your life." Plus 5.

The cheese factor is amped up to 11 when, live in concert, he says he wants to sing a love song, which prompts Audrina to start crying. Words fail us. Wash.

Kristin Cavallari Lutz Allie have it.

Side note: You gotta love how Ryan, unlike the others who receive just a single name (e.g. Audrina, McKaela, Kristin), is always billed as Ryan Cabrera. Plus 3.

Stephanie says she isn't sure if she is ready to date at this stage, at least until she finds a guy who understands her life. Minus 8. Um, girl, get over yourself.

At the Young Hollywood Party, Audrina Patridge hints at a breakup with Ryan. Too bad, because he actually seems like a good dude, despite the hair. Minus 7.

In vintage Hills fashion, an argument soon erupts between Kristin and Allie before Brody breaks it up. Poor McKaela just looks lost, unsure what to do. Plus 8.

Kristin thanks Brody for having her back, which he says he always will ... unless he wants to nail some new girl. They walk off arm-in-arm, as usual. Minus 3.

Side note: We swore Kristin Cavallari was Heidi Montag for a sec with the makeup and teased hair - but a lack of HUGE fake breasts dashed our hopes. Plus 2.

TOTAL: -14. SEASON: -6.

Tuesday, The Hills returned to its roots: Staged cat fights at clubs!

Only the people involved were pretty random, as was the reason for said cat fight. What we're seeing is basically a watered-down version of past Hills seasons.

Kristin Cavallari, Jay Cutler

McKaela Line was dissed by Brody Jenner and found out her new BFF, Allie Lutz, is viewed as an insane person by pretty much every other star of the show.

Yes, these were some of the primary peeps featured last night.

No LC. No Speidi. Sorry, McKaela Line, cute as you are, you don't do it for us, especially if you fall for these people's games. Are you that naive? This is Season Six!

Still, here's THG's rundown of The Hills, plus-minus style:

The Hills returns to its staged cat fight roots.

At Smashbox, where she shockingly got a job, McKaela is asked by Lo how things are going with Brody, but she says he hasn't called. Stunning, really. Minus 4.

At Stephanie's birthday party, Brody and Kristin Cavallari get cozy on the couch and ... whoa! McKaela walks in. Plus 5 for everyone making it look fairly natural.

All hell breaks loose when Kristin confronts her rival, Allie Lutz, and declares she will never like her after she broke into Brody's house. We care why? Minus 3.

Brody ignores McKaela's call with Kristin. Basically, this is 100 percent fake, and/or he's such an ass he's willing to be filmed playing girls. Either way, Plus 7.

Audrina says Brody and Kristin are practically soul mates. LOL. Minus 6 for that line no one would ever say and KC's assessment of their "undeniable chemistry."

Speaking of Audrina Patridge, she tells Steph she likes when Ryan Cabrera is away so she can have "quality girl time," code for "I'm sick of this loser." Plus 4.

Comment rendered unnecessary.

Kristin on Allie: She's "the dumbest girl on the planet," she's "pure evil," and looks like "a 45-year-old stripper who smokes a pack of cigarettes a day." Plus 11.

Ryan tells Audrina he loves her despite her questioning their relationship ... then Audrina meets Justin Bobby at his shop while Ryan's on tour. Burned. Plus 10.

Allie tells McKaela that Kristin made up lies about her breaking into Brody's house. We wouldn't doubt it, but we're also straight up confused/bored, so Wash.

But Minus 33 for Justin-Bobby being on the show at all, because really? We haven't seen enough of this loser in three years? Minus 5 more for the hair, too.

J-B questions Audrina on her relationship with Ryan and offers a little advice. The extent to which Audrina self-sabotages her love life is staggering. Minus 7.

Kristin tells McKaela to watch out for Allie, and that Brody lies. Plus 13, because we all know Brody will get with them both whenever he decides anyway.

TOTAL: -8. SEASON: +8. Watching Brody Jenner play chicks is fun, but even that gets old. Bring back Speidi, get rid of Justin, and get Kristin a spine.

Old habits die hard. Especially when the producers of The Hills keep recycling them and you have zero self respect. Justin-Bobby and Audrina Patridge, everyone!

Yup, last night's Hills marked the return of He Who Must Not Be Named and Does Not Shower. It also marked another week of the same Kristin and Brody drama.

To say the show is growing stale and running out of compelling characters is an understatement. Still, here's THG's rundown of The Hills, plus-minus style:

Kristin and Stacie decide to go out and meet boys to get Kristin's mind off of Brody. Not surprisingly, they find themselves disappointed by the selection. Minus 1.

Brody tells McKaela there's nothing going on with Kristin Cavallari and she needs to deal. Plus 3 for poor, sweet, naive, out-of-town McKaela actually buying it.

Brody Jenner and Kristin Cavallari: "Nothing going on."

McKaela meets up with L to talk about the "Kristin situation" and working at Smashbox Cosmetics. Yup, we've reached the point of Lo-McKaela story lines. Minus 16.

Brody Jenner in a nutshell: He likes Kristin; He likes being a player; He brings in new girls to prove they're just friends, then pursues her again. Repeat. Game. Plus 20.

Minus 8, though, because he and Avril Lavigne are together in real life, making it impossible to take any of what we're watching seriously (it was hard enough).

Poor, faithful Ryan Cabrera is, like, so devoted to Audrina, even though there's zero evidence of chemistry between them, and we know they break up. Minus 7.

Audrina Patridge is TOTALLY CAUGHT OFF GUARD by Justin-Bobby! Minus 20 because it's Justin-Bobby, but Plus 29 for such blatantly obvious contrived nonsense.

The producers told me I'd run into ... er, fancy seeing you here!

Ostensibly, the reunion happened when Audzo checked out the band Purple Melon at the Viper Room, where J-Bobby's band is also performing. He's in a band? Plus 7.

Justin being a drummer without us knowing for years? Minus 3. Expecting us to believe Audrina just happened to show up? Minus 4. Him being pretty good? Plus 9.

She omits mention of seeing Justin when she recounts the night to Ryan. Minus 5. Then the next evening (when Cabrera is out of town), they meet up again. Sigh

Just FYI, MTV expects us to buy this after this loser strung her along for 2-3 seasons, then supposedly dated Kristin, then vanished, then resurfaced. Minus 15.

A final note on the unexplained absence of Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, who split up over the weekend: It sucks. Life without Speidi is not worth living. Minus 15.

TOTAL: -26. SEASON: +16. Some more images from last night:

The Hills cast is becoming increasingly fed up with the way the show's producers are meddling with their lives to create drama. Now Kristin Cavallari is fighting back.

"After The Hills, I plan to work on many business opportunities, and I've always wanted to write a tell-all book," the show's resident bad girl/narrator tells In Touch.

Struttin' It

According to insiders, Kristin has already started writing the book, and as soon as her contract with the show is up - after the current, final season - she'll dish on it.

"She has wanted to tell the real story before, but she wasn't allowed."

What is the real story of The Hills, exactly? That producers manufacture drama and have writers create story lines? We already know that, girl. Save your energy.

If Kristin tells all ... do you care? [Photo: PacificCoastNewsOnline.com]

The Hills Quotes

Brody's girlfriend is pretty. With very large breasts.

Lauren Bosworth [on Cora Skinner]

Someone with a great sense of humor is the most important thing, and someone who really supports me in everything I do... I don’t ever want to make an excuse for trying to work hard and having my own life. I love a guy that supports that and loves that.
