The Hills: New Beginnings is back for its highly-anticipated reboot after nine years off the air. The game-changing MTV series will reunite fans with core stars such as Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port, Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Justin Bobby Brescia, Frankie Delgado, and Brody Jenner, as well as introduce newcomer and The O.C. star Mischa Barton for a new round of drama. Of course, there is one notable absence from the cast of The Hills' reboot: Lauren Conrad.
However, Port, a close friend of Conrad who interned at Teen Vogue with the star, insists there is no bad blood between the hills cast.
"I didn't talk to her, but I feel like I talked to someone that knows her and I think she was still really excited for us all to do it. And she's in such a different place in her life, you know?" Whitney Port told E.!. "Like, I think she's probably just feeling like, I don't know, she's about to have a baby, wants some quiet time at home. Hopefully, she'll watch and be entertained by it."
While Frankie Delgado echoed Whitney's sentiments. According to Delgado, his former co-star possesses no hard feelings about the show. "She's a sweetheart. I think she wants what's best for us," he told ET. "I think she's that kind of person. She wishes me the best. I don't think she has anything against the show. She's moved on to bigger, better things."
Since first appearing on our screens in the high school reality series Laguna Beach - boasted as 'the real O.C' - LC Lauren Conrad has released her fashion line with Kohl’s and written several books. In 2013, the designer and author then co-founded The Little Market, a home decor nonprofit "founded by women to empower women." And, in March of this year, Conrad announced the launch of her podcast Asking For a Friend, which focuses on "life, love, business and finding balance in it all."
In addition, Lauren married William Tell in 2014 and welcomed the couple's first child in 2017. Earlier this year she announced that she's expecting her second child.
