Heidi says Lauren “is tired of” The Hills, but she and Spencer are “just beginning”

When Lauren Conrad talked to Entertainment Weekly earlier this summer, she suggested that the fourth season, which debuted Monday night, would be her last. But she also admitted that she says that every season: “Every season, I think it’s the last. Right now, I think this is the last season,” she said.

Not that anyone at MTV has asked them, but Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag talked to Ryan Seacrest today and said they’re ready to take over the show when Lauren finally bails. Spencer even wants to narrate the show, as Lauren does now.

“Sometimes the narrator has to throw their hate up on the wall and pass the mic. It’s my favorite show. I love it. The Hills season 10 is what I’m going for,” Spencer told Seacrest, according to People.

And Heidi said, “I think that maybe Lauren is tired of [being on the show], but we’re just beginning. We’re not even remotely sick of it.” But what if we’re sick of you, Heidi? What then?

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
