MTV bosses have denied reports Lauren Conrad has left THE HILLS, insisting she is still filming the hit show.
Reports on Tuesday (07Apr09) claimed Conrad's contract with the network expired last month (Mar09) and she had come to the end of filming.
Producers were putting together specially filmed clips of the 23 year old to use in the new series, according to the New York Daily News.
A source told the publication, "The producers would make Lauren react to a lot of potential scenarios, because they're not yet sure how the finale will play out with the other characters.
"They would literally give her directions like, 'Now react to Stephanie Pratt being pregnant!' Lauren would just giggle and go for it. She also had to pretend to react to a fake storyline about Audrina and Brody hooking up."
But bosses at MTV have dismissed the allegations regarding Conrad's contract and filming schedule, saying: "We couldn't cut a show with Lauren's fake reactions."
