Lauren Conrad Sticks to Hills Retirement Plan

by at . Comments

Despite recent reports claiming she is looking to return to The Hills next season after all, due to the recession and limited opportunity elsewhere, Lauren Conrad's rep insists the current season will indeed be her last.

But the New York Post reported on Saturday that LC is working out a new deal to re-appear on the reality show after assessing the dire economy.

"She kind of realized, especially in this economy, there's not much else out there for her," says the Post, also citing the return of Kristin Cavallari.

But her rep says there's no such plan: "She is focusing on both clothing lines and her books. She has no plans to return to The Hills at this time."

MTV has already announced the show will return in the fall with new episodes even without Lauren Conrad, who has starred on the show since its debut.

"[Lauren Conrad] has moved on, but Heidi, Audrina, Spencer, Justin Bobby, Brody, Stephanie and Lo will be back as the drama continues with fresh faces, new stories and shocking surprises," reads MTV's press release.

The show will air in its usual time tonight at 10 p.m. The season finale, which features the whole Hills gang at Spencer and Heidi's wedding, is May 31.
