Apparently the news that Lauren Conrad is leaving "The Hills" has left thousands of teenage girls and boys around the country in a state of mourning.
In just four years, LC has gone from the seaside resort town of Laguna Beach to becoming an international sensation as the star of MTV's hit show "The Hills." And whether or not you watch the show, it's almost impossible to find someone who hasn't at least heard the names LC, Heidi, Spencer and Audrina.
Well, it's official — after five whole seasons, "Hills" centerpiece Lauren Conrad will be replaced by frienemy Kristin Cavallari — prompting mixed reactions from fans all over the world.
So today I stepped just outside the building into Times Square to ask "Hills" fans exactly what they thought of Lauren leaving, her new replacement Kristin, and if they think the show will be better or worse without LC.
It wasn't hard to find die-hard "Hills" fans — in fact, it was really easy. From Kentucky, Florida, New York and London — we had people lining up to comment on the show and, judging by those we spoke to, LC is going to be missed. Hers are some big shoes to fill. But let me put you all at ease — one thing everyone should know is that the producers and team behind the show know exactly what they are doing and, most importantly, they know exactly what fans of "The Hills" want: drama! So don't sleep on Kristin Cavallari just yet — something tells me it's going to be an interesting season.
