LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Lauren Conrad and The Hills have left a surprise for the Finale. Lauren Conrad will host The Hills afterparty broadcast tonight, of course. But despite reports that LC doesn’t appear in the finale episode, reports now claim LC does it in fact appear in the last episode tonight.
Reports today say that Conrad taped a secret scene, away from many of the cast members, that producers were left with the option to include in the final episode. Series creator Adam Divello confirmed to Ryan Seacrest that Conrad (as pictured above after season 5) would join the finale afterparty.
Either way, with two New York Times bestsellers, a third book on the way, and plans to turn her series into a feature film, life is good for LC. “LA Candy” and “Sweet Little Lies” were LC’s first two books. Her next book drops on shelves this October.
Still on shelves is Lauren Conrad at Kohl’s. “It was just kind of a battle I had because I wanted to do a higher-end line — I wanted to do a contemporary line — but I was also very aware that the reason I was able to do it at such a young age was because of fans that have supported the show and have supported me.”
Lauren said the following after her departure from the show. “While putting my personal relationships and struggles on television wasn’t always easy, the support I received from people made such a difference. Because of all of you, I was able to accomplish so many aspirations and for that I am very grateful. So, THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!”
The Hills never rebounded from LC’s departure. This last season, less than 2 million viewers watched each episode, down from an average 3 million the season before with Lauren.
