THR has learned that Lauren Conrad – who starred in and narrated MTV's “The Hills” from 2006 to 2009 — taped an appearance for the final episode of the long-running reality series to air tonight at 10 p.m.
Sources close to the production have confirmed that Conrad recently filmed a very brief, top-secret scene that show producers are expected to include in the series finale.
Previously, show creator Adam Divello confirmed on air to Ryan Seacrest last Tuesday that Lauren Conrad and former cast mate Whitney Port will also be joining the cast at the live after show in Hollywood. Following Conrad’s departure from the show, the top-rated reality franchise suffered a severe decline in audience and a move to Tuesday nights from Mondays.
The show cast former "Laguna Beach" star Kristen Cavalleri in her place, and concentrated largely on the circus of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt.
Since leaving “The Hills,” Conrad has penned two New York Times bestselling novels: “LA Candy” and “Sweet Little Lies.” The third installment in the series is due to hit shelves in October. The reality star also inked an exclusive deal with Kohl’s department store in 2009 to design a line of women’s apparel “LC Lauren Conrad.”
