Lauren Conrad: Leaving The Hills For Real

by at . Comments

Despite recent reports claiming she is looking to return to The Hills next season after all, Lauren Conrad's rep says the beauty is sticking to her guns.

Having her life filmed by MTV since high school, Conrad had long sought more privacy and has said that The Hills' current season will be her last.

But the New York Post reported on Saturday that LC is working out a new contract to re-appear on the reality show after assessing the dire economy.

"She kind of realized, especially in this economy, there's not much else out there for her," says the Post, noting that the change of heart may have been prompted by the return of Kristin Cavallari. "Our source clucked, 'She's baaaack!'"

But her rep says that there's no such plan: "She is focusing on both clothing lines and her books. She has no plans to return to The Hills at this time."

Last week, the network announced the show will return in the fall with new episodes sans Lauren Conrad, who has starred on and narrated the show since its debut.

"Lauren has moved on, but Heidi, Audrina, Spencer, Brody, Stephanie, Justin Bobby and Lo will be back as the drama continues with fresh faces, new stories and shocking surprises," read MTV's press release about The Hills' return.

The show returns with a new episode tonight at 10 p.m. The season finale, which features the whole cast at Spencer and Heidi's wedding, is May 31.
