Lauren Conrad Heading Back to 'The Hills' for Post-Finale Show

She was at the center of the show that was spun off from 'Laguna Beach,' and though Lauren Conrad has been MIA from 'The Hills' since the middle of season 5 in 2009, the Los Angeles Times reports that she'll be back for the series post-finale reunion special, airing Jul. 13.

After six seasons, 'The Hills' and its ubiquitous stars are riding off into the reality TV sunset, and Conrad, along with Whitney Port (who's now starring in 'The Hills' spin-off 'The City') will return to MTV for a live post-'Hills' series finale special that will also include the entire cast.
Well, most of the entire cast ... no word yet on the status of tempestuous couple Heidi and Spencer Pratt, the warring lovebirds who were kicked off the show earlier this season after Spencer allegedly had a fight with a producer. The Pratts are also, allegedly, warring with each other, as Heidi filed for a legal separation from Spencer on Jun. 8, and has announced that she'll be starring in another 'Hills' spin-off, 'The Heidi Show,' with Jen Bunney.

As for Conrad, the last time she was seen mingling with her 'Hills' pals on camera was the May 31, 2009, episode 'Something Old, Something New,' in which she attended the wedding of her former BFF Heidi and Spencer, whose long-running tiff with Lauren sparked the end of the Lauren/Heidi friendship and numerous tabloid stories. That episode also featured the debut of Conrad's old 'Laguna Beach' nemesis Kristin Cavallari as the new female center of the show.

Since leaving 'The Hills,' Conrad has enjoyed multi-media successes, including a clothing line, penning fiction books, and, earlier this month, starring in her own "Got Milk" ad.

Conrad has repeatedly denied that she would return for the actual 'Hills' finale, though the show's creator, Adam DiVello confirmed to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show on Wednesday that she's been convinced to return for the reunion special on July 13.

Meanwhile, as the show winds down -- there are only two episodes remaining, including the series finale -- previews for the Jul. 6 episode (below, at the end of episode 10) suggest the Pratts may be returning to the storyline. Heidi's mother, Darlene, who's been on the receiving end of Spencer's harsh (read: obnoxious) words, is seen commiserating with other daughter Holly about feeling alienated from Heidi. Elsewhere, the Kristin/Brody will-they-won't-they appears to be headed for a tear-inducing conclusion, and Spencer's sister Stephanie meets a new guy.
