Brody Jenner and Lauren Conrad ‘never dated,’ he says it was all faked for The Hills

Brody Jenner The Hills Fake

Brody Jenner and Lauren Conrad must be (slightly) better actors than we realized! During a July 3 podcast on relationships, Brody said he “never dated” his The Hills co-star.

The topic came up when Dr. Mike Dow was running through Brody’s romantic history and mentioned he dated Lauren a few years ago.

“That’s false. Lauren Conrad and I never dated… Lauren and I have always been just friends,” Brody corrected. “We worked together on a show called The Hills where we had to pretend like we were dating but we never dated.”

Brody said that his relationship with Kristin Cavallari was genuine — but only during their younger years: “I dated Kristin when we were very young… When she was on Laguna Beach and I was on a show called Princes of Malibu with Spencer Pratt… we met at a party in Hollywood… but during [The Hills] when we filmed, Kristin and I did not date, we were not hooking up.”

This definitely isn’t the first time former stars have spoken out about The Hills being as real as Heidi Montag’s boobs. Rumors began in 2009 when some cast members were photographed with scripts. After the MTV series ended in 2010, Kristin said “almost all of it was fake.”

“Basically, all that was to get ratings,” she explained. “I was on the cover of Us Weekly saying I need to go to rehab and that my parents wanted me to go to rehab. Both of my parents were like, ‘Oh really? Why don’t they call me?’”

Lauren — who was apparently faking a serious romance for much of the show — once said the essence was genuine even though some scenes were staged.

“I think the story they told wasn’t a dishonest one,” she said in 2009. “The way they did it sometimes was. They aren’t going to be there for everything. Sometimes two of their main characters will get into a fight, and that’s important to the storyline. The [producers] need that reenacted.”

Sounds like Brody’s experience with The Hills made him a total natural on his step-siblings’ show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians!
