It’s been about three years since viewers said goodbye to MTV’s groundbreaking reality hit The Hills. In the series finale, Kristin Cavallari (who had replaced previous star Lauren Conrad at that point), seemed to drive away from her on-again, off-again boyfriend Brody Jenner and into a new, camera-less future. But then it was revealed that Brody and Kristen were actually shooting all of this on a backlot, a play by the producers on rumors that The Hills wasn’t real.
But fans may get an even more satisfying resolution this summer: EW can exclusively reveal that MTV will air a different, alternate ending to The Hills on Friday, August 9, at 11:30 a.m. ET. It’s all part of the return of “RetroMTVBrunch,” which beginning July 8 at 9 a.m. ET and will feature encore presentations of both Laguna Beach and The Hills. Then, starting July 10, the marathons will air from 8 a.m. ET till noon ET. In between the airings, castmembers from MTV’s Girl Code and Awkward. will be providing commentary on the classic reality soaps.
Conrad -- who just added a line of bedding to her Kohl's collection -- also spoke to Us about the possibility of returning to reality TV.
"I was out to dinner last night with Trey Phillips, who I did [Laguna Beach] with, and we were talking about how it was such a unique time. It was before reality TV had become what it was today. There was an innocence to it because none of us were doing it to get any deals or other ventures -- we were just all friends and it sounded cool so we did it," she explained. "We didn't know what we were really doing, so I think it was this very interesting time where people didn't have ulterior motives. We were just filming a documentary."
"It was just a big group of friends being themselves," she continued. "I think it's impossible to do that in this day and age of reality TV."
Conrad said she's still friends with "most" of her former costars. She's also toyed with the idea of producing her own reality show. "I've been talking to people over the last couple years about that," she told Us. "Right now I don't have the time I would want to dedicate to making it the best it could be, so the perfect opportunity hasn't come around yet. But I'm hopeful that it will!"
