Heidi: “I’m still happy to be on this show with” Lauren

Heidi Montag says that despite her feud with Lauren Conrad, she likes being on the show–which is kind of obvious, considering that she wouldn’t be on the cover of a magazine, nor would anyone care who she is, unless she was on The Hills.

“Every character plays a unique role and makes his or her own contribution. Even though Lauren and I aren’t getting along, I’m still happy to be on this show with her,” Heidi told CosmoGirl, according to People magazine.

Heidi also says that she’s annoyed by the way Lauren comes off as the good one. “I just have to accept that Lauren will never be seen in a bad light. … They don’t show the footage of how Lauren was sort of obsessed with [fiance Spencer Pratt], or how she called my mom in Colorado and told her I was involved in an abusive relationship, or how she would scream at me in the middle of the club if I wanted to leave … to go see Spencer,” Heidi told CosmoGirl.

Heidi also says that her own portrayal is sometimes accurate: “some of it is true but some of it is a character that they have created.”
