It should come as no surprise that Lauren Conrad won't be on The Hills: New Beginnings—the reboot of the original show that questioned everyone's trust in reality television. (In case you missed it, The Hills creators basically admitted the series wasn't real in the last episode almost a decade ago when the backdrop was taken down.) But still! That doesn't leave fans wondering any less about whether or not LC, the original star of the show before Kristin Cavallari replaced her in its sixth and final season, was approached to return for the reboot.
Frankie Delgado, one of the original cast members who also stars with his wife on the reboot, opened up to Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab) about how Lauren probably feels about the show the second time around. "Lauren's a really close friend of Jennifer's. She's a sweetheart. I think she wants what's best for us. I think she's that kind of person. She wishes me the best," Delgado says (opens in new tab). "I don't think she has anything against the show. I think...she's moved on to bigger and better things."
Another source told People in 2018 (opens in new tab), "She’s in a different place in her life. But she wants everyone to enjoy themselves. She wishes everyone the best.”
Lauren hasn't made an official comment about the The Hills: New Beginnings, but it's clear she was ready to move past the drama as soon as she left the show in 2009. Since then, she's started her own clothing line, LC Lauren Conrad (opens in new tab), and has written nine (!) books (opens in new tab). She's currently expecting her second child with her husband of almost five years, William Tell, and has a two-year-old son, Liam.
