Last night on The Hills, the main subject matter was - take a wild guess - the Lauren Conrad sex tape rumors! Amazing! Who would have thought.

This time, though, Lauren and Heidi finally had it out - face-to-face and IM-to-IM - over the rumors Heidi and Spencer Pratt allegedly started about the (most likely non-existent) tape featuring Lauren having sex with Jason Wahler.

The showdown took place at the Declare Yourself event - held to reach out to politically-involved young Hollywood - when Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port were covering the event for Teen Vogue and in walked Heidi Montag.

Both girls were armed with trusty companions - LC with Whitney Port, and Heidi with one of her Bolthouse co-workers - and their share of harsh words.

Speaking for the first time in months, Heidi acted like all is well, and in the past, while Lauren Conrad stewed. Montag insisted she wasn't involved in spreading rumors, though she didn't exactly deny Spencer Pratt had a role in it.

LC stared down a babbling Heidi Montag before calmly saying that she's willing to talk ... if Heidi's willing to apologize. Oh snap. Whitney Port's response after the spat: "Is this horrible for you? This must be horrible for you." A nice friend.

Heidi Montag vs. Lauren Conrad: Going at it again over sex tape rumors!

The next day, in a flashback to 11th grade, Lauren went to work only to find an iChat message waiting to her from Heidi as Whitney looked on, bemused. "We need to talk," it read. OMG. The Hollywood Gossip staff was totally ROTFL.

Despite her disgust, LC agreed to invite the evil one over to the apartment they once lived in together. In a bogus display of burying The Hills hatchet, Heidi brought Lauren Conrad some flowers and a year's supply of cheese. Seriously, you should have heard some of this girl's unapologetic apologetic remarks.

As Heidi sort of said sorry while continuing to neither confirm nor deny Spencer Pratt's actions, Lauren Conrad responded, "I want to forgive ... and forget you."

And there you have it. Elsewhere, Audrina Patridge and Justin Brescia - who we now know are broken up - hit a rough patch. Fortunately, she was too busy working assisting Sean Kingston after being promoted at Epic Records.

Audrina's (cute) co-worker played a positive role in helping our girl see there's a lot more to life than that belching, mumbling, dreadlocked loser Justin-Bobby. We can't wait for The Hills episode chronicling their final fight.

The Hills may be alive with sounds of Lauren and Heidi cat-fighting, Spencer scheming and Audrina and Justin-Bobby breaking up / getting back together, but it's also a show about coming of age and chasing a dream in the City of Angels.

All our girls are on a cool career track. Whitney Port works full-time for Teen Vogue, putting together runway shows and photo shoots, while Heidi Montag works for Brent Bolthouse's nightlife event-planning company and Audrina Patridge checks out new bands and assists production for current Epic Records artists.

Stay tuned for our exclusive recap of The Hills later today ...

After countless heart-to-hearts with her friends, like Lauren Conrad (on and off camera), The Hills' Audrina Patridge has officially told her douchebag scruffy, motorcycle riding boyfriend, Justin "Bobby" Brescia, to hit the road.

Audrina told Us Weekly in its new issue that it took an embarrassing public blowout at a club for her to realize Justin Brescia was not Mr. Right.

Audrina Patridge and Ryan Cabrera

"I caught him doing something he shouldn't have been doing and it was just the last straw," Audrina Patridge says of her October 16 fight at Opera.

What, exactly, was Justin-Bobby up to?

A source says he was "making out with a red-headed girl right in front of Audrina, and when she confronted him about it he laughed in her face."

Audrina Patridge said of the fight with Justin-Bobby Brescia at Opera, "It was one of the hardest nights ever I've had to deal with. And it was on camera too."

Patridge admits that she and Justin Brescia, whom she met before she was on The Hills, never were dating exclusively. But he had been pushing it.

"I don't feel like he's giving at all," Audrina said. "I'm always there for him no matter what, and sometimes I don't feel like it's mutual."

A source close to The Hills star is more blunt: "Whenever they'd go out, he'd ignore her. He would never return her calls, never ask her on dates."

He was, however, happy to show up when the cameras were around. He's like a less interesting, less loyal, scraggly-ass version of Spencer Pratt!

What does a young, fun reality TV star do when she turns 21? Have a dinner with her lame "fiancé" packed with awkward pauses and boring conversation.

Yeah. Despite the best efforts of a sullen Heidi Montag to show The Hills viewers (as well as herself, in all likelihood) that a quiet dinner with Spencer Pratt was all she needed on such an occasion, Montag just can't sell this one.

She can fake her boobs, her nose, her engagement ring, her new Chanel purse (you know Spencer just got hold of a box and didn't pay for that thing), but even Heidi Montag fell short of convincing us that this was her idea of 21st birthday fun.

Whitney Port, Lauren Conrad

Luckily, not everyone is as dull as Heidi Montag, whose life less interesting than watching paint dry. Some girls from The Hills (Whitney/LC) actually do stuff!

Lauren Conrad and her Teen Vogue boss / co-worker, Whitney Port, put on a huge fashion show for the magazine, moving young Hollywood stars down the crowded red carpet and seating them in just minutes.

Despite widespread chaos and late-arriving stars such as Hayden Panettiere and Hilary Duff, LC and Whitney ran the event as well as any tandem could, and their efforts won the glowing approval of demanding supervising editor Lisa Love, as well as the magazine's editor-in-chief, Amy Astley. Team Whitney!

Meanwhile, at the famed Viper Room on Sunset Blvd., Audrina Patridge and her douchebag beau, Justin-Bobby, went to see a band called The Ruse perform.

She had planned on scouting them for Epic Records, where she works. But at an after-party, one of the band members starts scouting her, if you know what we mean. We mean he wants to get Audrina out of that oversized t-shirt!

Of course, a mumbling but semi-protective Justin-Bobby (a.k.a. Justin Brescia) tells the guy "she's pretty good" when asked if Audrina is on the market.

In moron-speak, this apparently means "hands off my woman," because the Ruse guy looks sad, and J-B and Audrina Patridge soon leave the bar together.

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."

Audrina Patridge: Definitely Fake Boobs

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."

It doesn't look like Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are breaking up, but another pair of stars from The Hills had quite the spat Thursday night.

The crew of The Hills was filming an upcoming episode of the show, and TMZ was on hand to watch a sneak preview of the drama to come on MTV.

Audrina at the TCA

Audrina Patridge and her boyfriend, Justin Brescia (a.k.a. Justin-Bobby), got into a screaming match near the main entrance of the club Opera.

As she screams, "He doesn't even have the balls to come and talk to me," Audrina Patridge can be seen giving Justin-Bobby the one-finger salute. Hot!

You can check out the video of Audrina freaking out on Justin-Bobby here.

As Audrina retreated to the parking lot - minus Justin Brescia at this point - the MTV crew sprinted after her, beside itself that something interesting and action-packed was actually happened on slow-moving show.

Now we just need to see scenes of Whitney Port and Ben Lyons fighting. Or making out and fawning over each other. Too little Whitney on this show!

Enough with the Lauren Conrad sex tape rumors, already.

It's time for out girl LC to get out there and date someone.

Assault Weapons Ban

That said, what better place to get started than at a male model casting event at Teen Vogue. Working with Whitney Port, that's where Lauren Conrad met at model named Gavin - a guy she remembers she actually met before, at a similar event, and tried to set up with Heidi Montag. It's, like, a small world.

He asks Lauren Conrad out and she accepts. OMG!

At LC's place, Lauren "Lo" Bosworth and Audrina Patridge are excited about meeting Gavin. Lo says: "How fun! I love passing judgement on people!"

There's your quote of the night on The Hills, people.

The scene of the meet-up? Gavin joins Lauren, Whitney, Audrina and Lo at a beach BBQ at Brody Jenner's pad. Brody grills Gavin as gavin grills up burgers. This guy is clearly a little jealous of the new guy taking LC out on dates.

On the beach, Brody tells Lauren Conrad that Gavin is a nice guy, but a little bit boring. For LC's part, she's having fun, yet doesn't act too interested in Gavin.

Think Lauren Conrad is still a little hung up on Brody Jenner perhaps?

Lauren and Gavin go on a date to a sushi restaurant and it goes, like, okay, but just okay. On her way home, Lauren Conrad calls Brody Jenner to tell him he's right - Gavin was a bit boring. LC asks if he wants to come over and watch a movie. He asks which one. She says, "Does it matter?" OMG!

In gigantic tool news, Spencer Pratt continues to struggle with time constraints thrust upon him by Heidi Montag having an actual job. Every time Heidi must leave for a work commitment, Spencer acts legitimately put out.

Watching this guy, you just want to laugh... and simultaneously bludgeon his face and all its mysterious disappearing facial hair.

He's gotta be completely making this $h!t up for the sake of ratings. No guy actually cares about anniversaries... especially when they can't even buy a real engagement - or tell their parents they're engaged. Good riddance.

After a week absence that tested our patience, The Hills girls returned to bring Season 3's rising, soap-opera style tensions to a new high.

  • The subject of this week's drama: Lauren Conrad sex tape rumors.
  • The creator of the rumors (or at least the person bringing them up again, months later): Notorious troublemaker Jen Bunney.

Blame it all on the Bunney, indeed.

Lauren Conrad's fair-weather friend returned to The Hills with a vengeance last night, making that annoying ass pouty face and saying "like" and "um" more times than we can count. And blaming Brody Jenner for spreading those LC sex tape rumors that we thought simmered down months ago.

Of course, to any Hills fan, the theory that Brody Jenner spread sex tape rumors about Lauren Conrad sounds crazy. Where's the motive? This is a guy who won't say a harsh word towards anyone. And his alleged involvement in these rumors is a result of hearsay from - guess who - Heidi Montag.

Yes, Jen Bunney tells Lauren Conrad that Heidi Montag said Brody Jenner made up the rumors. Looks like she's just trying to take the heat off Spencer Pratt.

Traveling the way much celebrity gossip does these days - txt msg, omg - LC gets a message at work that Jen Bunney needs to talk to her. Small talk is not a big part of the equation here, as "Buns" is quick to drop the Lauren Conrad sex tape bomb, so to speak. Poor LC. She's just trying to move on and live her life!

Slightly suspicious of Brody Jenner, Lauren confronts the Prince of Malibu and he skirts the issue, reluctant to admit that he knows Spencer did it. But Lauren starts accusing him and finally he relents, stating that he knows "100 percent for a fact" that the loathsome Spencer Pratt is to blame.

Basically, this whole episode confirmed what we've known for months. You have to love The Hills, people, there's really no show like it.

In other news, Whitney Port was adorable (yet far too sparingly used) at the Teen Vogue offices, while Lauren apologized to Audrina Patridge for being judgmental about Justin Brescia (better known as Justin-Bobby) in Las Vegas.

He had a couple of good lines while shooting pool, although they may have to start giving him subtitles, because he mumbles too much to be understood.

Billionaire businessman Richard Branson was a busy guy yesterday, launching the first of Virgin America's three daily flights from San Francisco to Las Vegas.

Naturally, he brought Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge along.

In need of some star power to help build up press for the affair, Branson looked to Lauren and Audrina, the stars of MTV's reality show The Hills, along with former centerfolds Pamela Anderson and Carmen Electra. Hey, whatever works.

Richard Branson is flanked by Hills babes Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge.

In related news, The Hollywood Gossip is looking to launch a sister website next year and plans to invite D-list "stars" such as J.R. Rotem, Javier Bardem and Kimberly Stewart to help build up press at its huge premiere night bash.

It's Ashley versus Audrina! The Disney channel versus MTV! High school singing versus reality television scripting!

That's right, readers, the latest celebrity fashion face-off pits Ashley Tisdale against Audrina Patridge.

Kendall Jenner Fashion

The High School Musical actress sported her LaRok minidress at a Los Angeles event in April, while The Hills star was stylish in her little black dress at the Teen Choice Awards a few months later.

We know who Jared Murillo and Justin Brescia would vote for. But who do you think looks better?

Vanessa Hudgens pictures have been dominating the news, but Tisdale is here to prove she knows how to look mighty fine, too. So does Patridge. It's a tough call.
