While Stephanie Pratt will miss Lauren Conrad when she leaves The Hills, she's already gearing up for a new BFF to enter on the scene: Kristin Cavallari.
Note to K-Cavs: Stephanie's ready to party with you.
"I just met her actually. She was really, really nice and she was the kind of person that if I ever see out, I'd say hi to her because I feel like I know her because she's known Lauren and Heidi forever," Stephanie Pratt said.
"We're excited because [Lauren Conrad] wasn't going out much at the end, so Kristin's all ready to party. I've had such good luck with making friendships with these girls, so I'm optimistic I can make a good relationship with Kristin."
Stephanie Pratt can't wait to crack open a cold one with Kristin Cavallari - and figure out the best strategies for meddling with her personal life - on The Hills this fall.
As for her own perceived role as an annoying instigator - plenty of fans blame her for trouble between brother Spencer Pratt, Heidi Montag and LC - Steph says it's not true, despite the fact that it clearly is true on every episode of The Hills.
"Those blogs used to really upset me, about being the meddler," she says.
"But if I wasn't on the show, you'd basically have Heidi, Lauren and [Audrina Patridge] all by themselves because they're not friends. So, you'd be watching nothing if it wasn't for me bringing everyone together."
We're not sure that makes any sense, but for whatever it's worth, Stephanie Pratt is going on record not as a divider, but a uniter. With an IQ of 76.
