"It never hurts to try something new, but when you're born to do something, chances are you're going to wind up doing it no matter where you detour," her rep said.

The overdramatic release continued: "The latest proof comes from Erin Lucas, who loved her hosting career and never meant to stray ... until The City beckoned."

"It was nice while it - and her friendship with Whitney Port - lasted."

"But it was hosting she loved, and it is to hosting she returns, blowing kisses to all as she departs the series for her hosting home turf."

Note to rep: No one even knows who Erin Lucas is.

Erin Lucas - whose previous hosting credits include mtvU - has received new job offers and is working on other projects, including a video podcast, called "Style Lounge."

Why the sudden departure? Sources say Lucas was completely uninteresting and MTV wanted to bring in party girls to stir up fake drama had a falling out with Port.

Someone named Samantha Swetra has been brought in to replace Lucas.

The City Quotes

From the beginning of The Hills, I was very career-oriented. I had had a boyfriend for the first year and a half, and I made a conscious effort to keep that to myself. I just didn't want to be that vulnerable.

I just want to live a normal life.
