Dig up the nostalgia, and sometimes, all the drama comes with it!
That’s the case for fans of The Hills, who — after watching Tuesday’s much-anticipated tenth anniversary special starring one Lauren Conrad — found out the hard way they wouldn’t get everything they wanted out of the reunion!
Now, we’re learning more about exactly what we saw on MTV this week, and thanks to an exclusive interview Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt just gave DailyMail.com, it turns out that a LOT of people were apparently left in the dark!
“She doesn’t want to share any limelight with anybody else. Don’t include Heidi and I. Where is Audrina? Where is Brody? These are very entertaining people, their lives are packed. That’s why she quit The Hills. Not because she burned out – she didn’t want other people to shine. She quit thinking they were going to cancel the show. She quit thinking she was going to get everybody off TV. That’s been her style from day one. ‘Oh, other people are getting some press? forget that. My show – I narrate it.'”
The 32-year-old went even further, taking it personally that his image and likeness was used in places to promote the special, despite him getting NO airtime whatsoever in the actual TV show itself:
“By her excluding everybody and acting like she’s better than the whole cast, it’s why she had no real friends. It’s why I never found her cool. It’s all about her. Why didn’t they have Audrina pregnant in there? Or Audrina holding her new baby with her fiance? Or Kristin Cavallari taking about her family? Or Brody talking about his new fiancee? Even if I’m not involved, that’s fine, Lauren hates Spencer, that’s great, don’t include me. But we’ve all heard about Lauren’s Kohl’s fashion line. That’s not new. It’s so shady, they faked everybody out thinking there was this reunion. Here’s the best part: If you go on Apple iTunes, Heidi and I are on the friggin’ cover of this ‘special’. I swear! We’re not even on it!”
Spencer says he refused to even watch the anniversary special, but Heidi did — and she had a lot to say about the ep, and the fallout with LC, too:
“During The Hills, Spencer and I weren’t allowed to be in certain places that she was in because she didn’t want us there; that was just very typical of what Spence and I encountered when we were filming. And parties for The Hills premieres and stuff, we weren’t allowed to be in the same room with her. It really was her show. She was the narrator and she really held all the cards, or most of them. And I think MTV has a special relationship with her, and they were just so excited to get her to do it that they probably just did whatever she wanted.”
These two are NOT holding back!
Most telling, though, Heidi revealed that the relationship between her and LC — as you may have guessed — is just nonexistent, and it has been for quite some time.
Regardless of who did what back now ten years ago, Heidi understands what that means moving forward for her and Lauren:
“We don’t have a relationship. I don’t think we’ve had one in a long time. It was interesting to see where she is at in her life now and she seems to be doing really well, and that’s great. But I haven’t talked to her in a while. I talked to her a few times on the phone after The Hills, but I think too much has happened and we are in such different places that we would ever be part of each other’s lives again. I don’t think either of us hold any negative feelings and we both appreciate the times that we were friends… I know I certainly do. The times that I talked to her were times that I called her, I reached out. I would be open to hanging out with her or just getting together and catching up, but I just think for her it is not a possibility. Maybe we’ll be friends again in heaven. In a different life time.”
Wow — that’s so sad for the friendship, no?! Right in the feels!
What did U think of The Hills’ tenth anniversary special?! Did it paint a full picture, or like Spencer and Heidi, did it leave you wanting more??
