Teen Vogue on Lauren Conrad, Whitney Port: "It Was Time for Them to Move On"

Despite reports, Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port weren't given the pink slip by Teen Vogue.

"I just thought it was time for them to try something new," Editor-In-Chief Amy Astley told Usmagaizne.com at the Ralph Lauren fall fashion show this morning. "An internship is a short thing, and I just felt it was time for them to move on a little bit."

Women's Wear Daily had reported the magazine decided to part ways with the MTV reality show because of the girls' wild lifestyles of clubbing, makingout and feuding.

"I think that’s really why Teen Vogue had had their moment with them — it went into another zone," their boss, editor Lisa Love, told Us.

Asked if the show is scripted, Love replied, "I think why they say all that is because there’s so much editing.

"They shoot reality and somehow it’s changed in the editing room to appeal to things, I don’t know," she said. "I’ve never watched the show.

"They were great interns in the beginning," Love added of Conrad and Port, "and then it’s time for interns to go some place else, right?"

Seems like Conrad has already moved on. She recently unveiled her new clothing line, the Lauren Conrad Collection.

What does Love think of her designs?

"I think it’s more T-shirt kind of things and jeans, very simple basics."

Still, she said the duds could "possibly" be featured in a larger facet in the magazine.

All of Lisa Love's comments seemed weird, kind of like she was trying too hard to be positive.

It seems what Lisa Love is really saying is "these bitches didn't do shit, I'm glad they're gone."

haha me too.. that's what I was getting. I'm a little surprised because Whitney seemed to take it more seriously.

the way she is wording things/answering the questions is so awkward.

they never really worked there though, right? i mean there names were never in the magazine under the who is who page.

no, but apparently Whitney still has a job there . Teen Vogue just didn't want MTV filming her there or associated with Teen Vogue anymore.

I thought Whitney wasn't an Intern anymore! Ah, well.

those apartments that you saw her and Heidi in and even the one she was at in the latest season are apartments that are provided to FIDM students.

if you have scholarship money/loans, you can use it to pay for your apartment. one of my friends uses his student loans to pay for his apartment in Lincoln Park, which is a pretty expensive neighborhood in Chicago.

When The Hills first started I heard that Lauren's parents were paying for the apartment for her.

I bet MTV made Whitney leave to go with Lauren. Those girls are completely controlled by MTV. It's so pathetic.

Uhm they only stopped by Teen Vogue once a month to shoot. They weren't exactly "interns" and the reason why TV gave them permission is because it brought the magazine enormous publicity.
