Stephanie Pratt, Audrina Patridge, Lo Bosworth are all leaving The Hills, Stephanie says

Three cast members will leave MTV’s The Hills at the end of this season, according to one of them.

“I think Audrina, Lo and I are all going to leave after these 10 episodes,” Stephanie Pratt told Hollyscoop. “I don’t know how much more I can take of The Hills. The Hills is very brutal.” Yes, getting paid millions of dollars a year to live a pretend version of your life must be very challenging.

After Stephanie’s comments, her representative did damage control, telling the Los Angeles Times, “At this point Stephanie isn’t certain whether or not she’ll be returning next season. Her focus is on this season’s show.”

Guess which couple is not leaving? Stephanie’s brother, Spencer Pratt, told the New York Post that he and Heidi “will be on as long as MTV will have us. For the next 100 years if possible!”
