Season 5 of The Hills, which debuts Monday, April 6 on MTV, will feature Lauren Conrad bidding farewell to the show following its latest batch of episodes.
"I actually thought last season was going to be my last," the star told EW. "[But] the producers wanted to hopefully give the show some sort of closure."
Lauren Conrad says that there isn't much drama - at least for her personally - in the final 10 episodes, since "I didn't have all that much conflict in my life over the last few months... I think I only cry in one episode."
That would certainly be a departure from what we're used to. Here's a photo of LC and the rest of the Season Five cast of The Hills ...
The Hills cast: Spencer Pratt, Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge, Lauren Conrad, Brody Jenner, Lo Bosworth, as-yet-unknown-guy, and Stephanie Pratt!
The end of her tenure on The Hills doesn't mean budding businesswoman LC is done with TV altogether. Lauren Conrad says that she's currently in discussions to turn her upcoming young-adult book series into a TV drama.
"We've been taking a lot of meetings," she says. "I don't know exactly where I want to go, but I've looked into producing because I've always found it so interesting."
As for costar Audrina Patridge's planned new reality series, Conrad says, "To be honest, I really haven't heard that much about it. She has a pretty interesting life. She's a really cool girl. She's fun to watch."
