In a recent interview, Paris Hilton explained why her boyfriend — and Lauren Conrad’s ex — Doug Reinhardt wouldn’t be appearing on any future episodes of the “The Hills.”
“The show is, like, so lame and fake,” she told UsMagazine.com. “He doesn’t even want to be a part of it. They make up relationships when they’re not there, and he just thinks it’s lame,” she said. “I’ve never seen the show in my life. I have no idea what it’s about. But he just thought it was cheesy.”
MTV Movie Awards weekend guest hosts and “Hills” stars Frankie Delgado and Stephanie Pratt responded to her comments, telling MTV News she should apologize.
“Doug’s not even on the show, so I don’t even understand that,” Pratt said. “And in real life he is friends with those boys, so it’s not fake. I would never call her show dumb, so I think she should apologize.”
Delgado also defended his show, saying, “She knows that it’s not fake. It’s not fake at all. It’s a real show. It’s as real as it gets. There’s no way to create that kind of drama. Nothing can even be scripted like that. Things do happen and they happen for a reason.”
But Delgado is quick to point out that although there’s nothing fake about the show, sometimes their friends’ personalities may give people that impression. “Some people … maybe their personalities are fake. They act fake on the show, but that’s what makes it dramatic,” he explained. “She should understand it’s all entertainment. It’s all business … Paris, it’s all business.”
