Lauren Conrad Confirms ‘Hills’ Anniversary Special in The Works…no Word on Speidi
UPDATE (5/31): Ten years after The Hills premiered on MTV, its protagonist, Lauren Conrad, has confirmed an anniversary special scheduled for August 2.
"I spent a lot of time thinking about how I would like to honor this anniversary and in the end, I just wanted to do something as a thank you to the fans," she wrote. "So I will be partnering with MTV on a special project that will air on August 2nd at 10 PM. We will be having an honest conversation about what it was really like living with cameras for so many years (spoiler alert: it was super weird), sharing some behind-the-scene secrets, and showing some of my life today. And since this is all for you, please let me know...if there are any questions you have or if there is anything you would like to see addressed."
It's been seven years since Lauren Conrad sidled out of Speidi's wedding, receded into a black car and officially ended her tenure as star of The Hills. But the beauty mogul shared a pointed Instagram photo yesterday (May 25) that seems to indicate her story on the show remains unfinished.
In a snapshot captioned "Never thought I'd see the day...." Conrad' makes some last-minute adjustments to the hem of what looks like a collection of bridesmaids dresses. But the image's three tags tell a clearer tale — one is Conrad, herself, another is her fashion line, Paper Crown and the last is MTV (or, more specifically, producer Jason Sands). Do we smell a Hills reunion brewing?
Fans certainly do, and the pic's comment section quickly became a breeding ground of speculation. "SHES COMING BACK TO MTV OMFG," one fan wrote while another noted "Like John Snow I know nothing but I can only hope she is returning to TV."
While specifics are still scant, MTV News has advised fans to keep a close eye on Conrad's Twitter account. She'll evidently be sharing some worthwhile info on Tuesday, May 31 at 11 AM EST — the exact date of The Hills' tenth anniversary.
What do you think — is there more Hills drama on the way? More importantly, do you want to see more?
