Despite reports that they were axed, The Hills stars Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port say they weren’t given the pink slip by Teen Vogue.
“I just thought it was time for them to try something new,” Editor-In-Chief Amy Astley told Us Weekly. “An internship is a short thing, and I just felt it was time for them to move on a little bit.”
Women’s Wear Daily previously reported that Teen Vogue decided to part ways with the MTV reality show because of The Hills‘ gal pals’ wild (but entertaining!) lifestyles of clubbing at Les Deux, making out and feuding.
LC and Whitney left Teen Vogue, but weren’t fired.
“I think that’s really why Teen Vogue had had their moment with them — it went into another zone,” their boss, editor Lisa Love, said.
So… is The Hills scripted?
“I think why they say all that is because there’s so much editing,” Love said. “They shoot reality and somehow it’s changed in the editing room to appeal to things, I don’t know. I’ve never watched the show.”
Ouch! Love added that Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port were great interns and then like all interns, “it’s time to go someplace else, right?”
Seems like LC has already moved on. She recently unveiled her new clothing line, the Lauren Conrad Collection!
