The Hills are alive -- or they're going to be, because The Hills: New Beginnings is a real thing that is happening.
Audrina Patridge has confirmed that she will be part of the revival of the groundbreaking reality series. But her ex Corey Bohan is making demands.
He has now taken to social media to insist that their daughter have no part in the show.
Audrina and Corey split up just about one year ago, and there were upsetting reports that Corey Bohan was emotionally and even physically abusive with her, prompting her filing a restraining order.
Corey was also accused of being unable to control his behavior, including outbursts and obscenities, in the presence of their very young daughter.
But now that The Hills is making its comeback, Corey has decided that the real menace to his family is ... reality television.
Corey's Instagram is now set to private, but the good folks over at The Ashley got their hands on a message that he shared with his followers.
In his Instagram post, Corey blasts reality television as exploitative, and seems to think that merely being on camera would harm his daughter.
In white letters on a black background, Corey says that if he gets his way, his daughter will never be part of The Hills: New Beginnings.
"I refuse to think it’s ok for our 2yr old daughter Kirra Bohan to be shown & exploited on reality TV," Corey writes.
For the record, the show has not yet begun filming, and it's unclear whose children, if any, will appear on screen.
"Not just my child," Corey continues. "But anyone’s for that matter.”
Most assume that Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag's baby will get some airtime. It looks like he's eager to throw shade in multiple directions.
Corey's post continues.
“I stand up for what I believe in," Corey insists.
Though he appears to be questioning the parenting judgment of a whole lot of people, he claims that he's not taking a shot at anyone.
Corey writes: "This post isn’t an attack or negative rant."
"This," Corey proclaims. "Is about our daughter Kirra Bohan."
Contrary to what the BMX rider might fear, Audrina isn't strutting Kirra out in front of anybody's cameras just yet.
"They haven’t even started filming the show yet,” a source tells People.
Additionally, the insider shares that “Audrina hasn’t made any final decisions about whether Kirra will appear."
As far as things with her ex go, Audrina "just wants things to be okay."
That is a very understandable feeling. But we're not sure if she's going to get her wish.
We don't mean to sound like we're accusing Corey Bohan of planning ahead, but it sounds like he may be laying the groundwork for his next custody battle.
See, because of Corey's alleged behavior towards her and around their daughter, some of which was in public, Audrina has sole custody.
Corey clearly does not like that, and he may plan to use "reality television harms children" or "she's using our baby for cash" as an argument in court.
That is just a guess, however. We of course cannot speak with certainty of Corey's motivations or intentions.
It may be that he just wanted to lash out online.
