MTV Puts The Brakes On Lauren Conrad’s Reality Show

MTV Puts The Brakes On Lauren Conrad’s Reality Show

Ouch. Looks like Lauren Conrad’s new reality show has been canned before the first episode has even aired. Lauren’s new show was going to feature her as she worked on her new fashion line, but MTV has decided to pass – and Lauren is none too happy.

MTV’s head of programming explained the decision:
“We decided not to go ahead with the show. She did do a pilot. There were talks about whether we could somehow manage to put together a special based on that footage but that’s also a big question mark based on her interest in that and the finances.”
It wasn’t anything personal:
We love her! We would love her on our network,” Janollari says. “It was a great attempt but it just didn’t feel like a perfect fit for us now.”
Lauren Conrad fired back at MTV in a statement:
“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.”
