As Lauren Conrad returned to MTV on Tuesday night for The Hills: That Was Then, This is Now, her former co-stars, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, the series’ unofficial villains, were on Twitter ranting about the anniversary special of the series that made them famous.
As for what the successful author and designer thought of her co-stars’ behavior, a source claims Lauren Conrad wasn’t surprised at all by the online attack, nor was she unprepared for what her former best friend, Montag, and her husband, Pratt, had to say.
“Spencer and Heidi’s reaction is not a surprise at all to [Lauren Conrad],” a source told Hollywood Life on August 3. “They’re doing the same old thing, trashing her to try and get publicity for themselves. It’s so predictable. Lauren was prepared for this attack, she knew it was going to happen.”

On Twitter, as Lauren Conrad looked back on her time on The Hills and revealed what was really going on behind the scenes, Spencer told fans he would “rather watch paint dry” than watch her show, or shop at Kohl’s, where one of Lauren Conrad’s clothing lines is sold. He even called out Lauren Conrad for being a bigger liar than Taylor Swift.
“It’s one of the reasons [Lauren Conrad] held out on doing this tell-all; she didn’t feel like dealing with all the drama,” the source continued. “But eventually she got a deal she couldn’t refuse. She isn’t letting Heidi and Spencer get to her. She knows they won’t have a soapbox for long so she’s just waiting this out.”
Following the series conclusion of The Hills, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt went on to blow through the millions they made on the MTV reality show as Lauren Conrad took a very different route. After launching several businesses and releasing a series of books, Lauren Conrad has seen tons of success and is worth a reported $25 million. Meanwhile, Montag and Pratt are living rent free at his parents’ rental in Santa Barbara, California.
“This is my parents’ rental house that we are property managers of,” Pratt explained during an interview with Entertainment Tonight‘s Ashley Crossan. “So, I mean, we don’t go buy designer clothes anymore, and buy fancy cars, and go to all the fancy restaurants. So, if you just eat tacos and walk dogs, you can pretty much survive on reality television.”

During last night’s Hills special, Lauren Conrad was seen tending to her clothing line, and at one point, her husband, William Tell, was seen sitting in on a design meeting. As fans heard on the show, Lauren Conrad met Tell on a blind date years ago and in 2014, they tied the knot.
Although Lauren Conrad revealed that her husband did once see a clip from her on the show, he didn’t watch the series when it aired on MTV and has no interest in educating himself on what she was like several years ago.
In addition to discussing her husband and their marriage, Lauren Conrad addressed her on-screen relationships with Jason Wahler and Brody Jenner. In perhaps the most shocking moment of the special, Lauren Conrad revealed Wahler was not sober during their breakup scene at his home. While dropping off his golf clubs, Conrad confronted Wahler about her suspicions but MTV opted against airing the footage. As for Jenner, Lauren Conrad revealed they actually had no chemistry, despite what was seen on the show.
