Lauren Conrad Says She Is Too ‘High Brow’ For MTV
Lauren Conrad has been developing a new reality show for MTV, but apparently it was too career oriented and not enough drama. After filming only the pilot episode MTV has decided not to continue with the project.
“We decided not to go ahead with the show….It was a great attempt but it just didn’t feel like a perfect fit for us now,” MTV told Entertainment Weekly.
Conrad seems to feel differently about the quality of the MTV project and says it may have been too smart for them. Considering who’s making them money these days, she is probably right in her assumptions. She issued a statement on February 4th concerning the snub.
“We sold a show to MTV, filmed it and are really proud of the final result. MTV felt the subject matter was too high brow for their audience and offered me the opportunity to change the show by incorporating more of my personal life. We agreed going into the project that this show would be an aspirational one, focusing on my career and my goals and not my personal relationships. We delivered the show that we sold and are sorry MTV didn’t feel their viewers were savvy enough to appreciate it.”
Seen here, Lauren Conrad arrives to Covergirl Cosmetic’s 50th Anniversary Party on January 5th in West Hollywood, California. Although she is wearing an adorable Chanel bag, her toes are really odd looking. I’m also a little concerned with how many cigarettes Samantha Ronson seems to be smoking while spinning hits!
