For those of us who watched The Hills religiously and obsessed over the ever-unclear relationship between Brody Jenner and Lauren Conrad, it is a disappointment to hear Jenner admit that all of it was fake.
“Lauren and I have always been just friends,” Brody said in his new podcast, The Brody Jenner Podcast with Dr. Mike Dow. “We had to pretend like we were dating [for the show] but we never dated.”
That may come as more of a surprise than his additional spill, that he never dated Kristin Cavallari while they were on The Hills. After all, we should have known that from the infamous final scene of season 6, when the Hollywood hills were torn down from behind Brody and Kristin after their sentimental goodbye, and the camera zoomed out to reveal a full set surrounding them.
Brody did, however, admit to having dated Kristin prior to The Hills, when she was on Laguna Beach.
Brody wouldn’t be the first character from The Hills to expose the scripted nature of the show. Audrina Patridge reported that when the show began, “a lot of it was real. As it went on, it was very manipulated and guided,” according to MSN Entertainment.
