Come on, Heidi Montag.

We fully expected that we'd be yelling at the TV Monday night. Don't get us wrong on that. But we expected that the subject of our ire would be Spencer the boyfriend, not his lovely lady. But after watching last night's episode of The Hills, we are sorry to say we actually feel some sympathy for him.

Whoa! Never Saw That Coming!

After last week's pregnancy scare turned out to be a false alarm, Heidi's first response was to call Spencer and lead him on to think she was knocked up.

"I took a pregnancy test, and...

[wait for it... waaaaaaait for it]

... I'm not pregnant."

It was gratifying to see that smug smile momentarily wiped off Spencer's face, but he didn't deserve to get f*%ked with like that. He regained his footing fast, though, lying about Audrina and telling Heidi he would be testing her from now on. True to his word, next time we saw him he was asking Audrina out on a date.

The following morning, Heidi explained her motivation to Lauren, who, bless her little heart, rolled her eyes through the entire conversation:

"If he was gonna react wrongly, then I wouldn't want to be with him," Heidi said.

"I don't think there's a right way to react to that, though," replied a suddenly sage Lauren Conrad bluntly.

The rest of the episode was about Lauren, who was sent her off to work at a fashion show by swimsuit designer Ashley Paige. As soon as Lauren arrived at Ashley's, she was set upon by the flustered designer and a series of underworked assistants and interns who began ordering her to do stuff they could just as easily have done themselves.

Like answer the phone. The Hills is supposed to remind you of The O.C., not Punk'd, but based on Lauren's exchange with Ashley, you might be confused.

In the episode's third story line, Heidi set up Lauren to go on a date with Brody Jenner. Yes, that Brody Jenner.

According to Heidi, he is like, Spencer's best friend. Yeah, this show isn't staged or anything.

Regardless, Lauren wasn't having it at first, telling her that any man who used to be with Kristin Cavallari is off limits to her:

"Heidi," LC sighed. "He's been touched by Kristin. He's, like, tainted."

Oh. Snap. She. Went. There.

Sadly, it turns out, Brody seems to have somehow been tainted by another former Laguna Beach star: Jason. Ouch. Watching Lauren and Brody struggle through their dinner and fail miserably at first-date banter and then sit there mutely and smile at each other was a painful flashback to Jason Wahler.

Really, we thought Brody had more in him than this crap. No wonder Nicole Richie wasn't that into him either. And that's saying something.

Lauren Conrad, Laguna Beach alumna and star of MTV's The Hills, is featured by People Magazine in a photo special previewing her reality show's second season - which starts tonight! Here are the exclusive photos and the details she dished:

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag at Area

Lauren, 20, and roomie Heidi Montag, also 20, sit down to lunch at Mauro's Café at Fred Segal. Conrad, who's been going out "most nights" (her fave club: Les Deux) since ending her tumultuous romance with Jason Wahler and a brief fling with Brody Jenner, says of Wahler, "I've tried several times to be like 'let's just be cool and be friends'... But then I'll see him somewhere and he'll just be rude to me." Ass.

At Ron Herman, Conrad pulls several dresses to try on for her appearance later on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote the new season of The Hills. "Whatever catches my eye," Conrad says of her shopping strategy.

Lauren Conrad tries on several gowns, including a $528 Yigal Azrouel blue halter frock ("It's a great color, but don't you think it looks like a potato sack?"), but ultimately settles on a black Jill Stuart cocktail dress. "I love the frilliness of this," she says as she takes a twirl. Later, Conrad looks poised as she and Heidi Montag arrive backstage at the Kimmel show.

At her apartment, Conrad gets makeup for her guest spot on the ABC late-night show. "I normally do my own hair and makeup," says Conrad, who despite being admittedly bad at dating, says she isn't what you'd call a drama queen. "I'm not a diva."

During her interview with Kimmel, Conrad tackles questions about the new season, her rival Kristin Cavallari ("Everywhere I go, people ask me about her... I just don't understand it"), her tattoo (she's changing the J, for Jason, to an L) and the new season.

"It was really easy," the Laguna Beach alumna boasts after the show, before heading out with her parents to grab dinner. Good luck this season, Lauren. Good luck.

Lauren Conrad made out like a bandit with mad loot at the VIP suite set up as part of the ongoing pre-Golden Globe festivities. The awards will be given out Monday. Check out these pictures of the pretty and very much in-demand Laguna Beach alum:

Paparazzi Lovers

Lauren (with pal Heidi Montag) is gearing up for the second season of her Laguna spinoff, The Hills, which debuts on MTV next week!

To commemorate this major television event, MTV held a launch party at the hot club Area for The Hills, and the stars came out. So did quote-unquote producer J.R. Rotem, Brandon Davis (a.k.a. Greasy Bear), Lauren's ex Brody Jenner, and Kim Kardashian, among others.

We can't wait to watch all the drama unfold in Season 2. What will happen with Lauren's career after she gave up that major opportunity to stay with Jason Wahler - who she later broke up with? Is Heidi going to get a new boyfriend?

We'll have to wait and see. But we will be there with exclusive recaps and analysis, you can guarantee that.

Laguna Beach alum and certifiable cutie Lauren Conrad attended the Silver Spoon Holiday Party at Dolce on December 18. With Lauren is her BFF, Heidi Montag. See below:

Heidi joined Lauren as a co-star of The Hills, the spin-off series staring Conrad after she graduated from high school on Laguna Beach. Lauren may be bad at dating, but following her as she embarked on a fashion career and adjusted to life after Laguna was totally awesome.

The first season of The Hills was a smash hit, and T.H. Gossip is excited to learn that Season 2 premieres Monday January 15, at 10 p.m.

We're excited as long as Jason Wahler doesn't attempt a comeback, that is. Enough is enough with that ass clown. We would be open to open to a potential cat fight between Lauren and Kristin Cavallari, however. Just saying.

No, we're not talking about the famous anatomy textbook. Nor are we talking about the hit TV series Grey's Anatomy. We're merely trying to make a play on words involving the gray sweaters worn by the three lovely ladies below. Okay? Everybody clear on that? Nice.

The Battle For Heidi

Today's fashion tip of the day is that neutral tunic-style dresses are the perfect transitional piece for fall, allowing stars like (left to right) Bridget Moynahan, Sandra Bullock and The Hills' Heidi Montag to stay cozy and cool all at once.

As for Heidi's BFF, former Laguna Beach and current Hills star Lauren Conrad, the only thing she's wearing these days is Brody Jenner. Oh. Snap.
