Kristin Cavallari may return to MTV on The Hills

Kristin Cavallari, the narrator of Laguna Beach‘s second season, may return to that series’ spin-off The Hills. She was part of a love triangle with that show’s star, Lauren Conrad, and Stephen Colletti, which means her return would likely bring drama.

“According to inside sources close to The Hills, the show’s producers are looking into the possibility of bringing Kristin onto their series to reunite with Lauren,” E!’s Kristin reports.

The gossip columnist reports that “according to the same insiders, Lauren is less than thrilled with the idea of Kristin coming onto her show,” and reminds us that Kristin “said she was leaving reality TV behind in order to focus on her acting career.”
