See Ya, LC! 'We Don't Need Her,' Sez Heidi

Lauren Conrad might've disappointed her fans by announcing she was walking away from The Hills, but not everyone took the news to heart. And one person who's definitely not stressing over LC's exit is her old (and possibly new?) pal Heidi Montag.

"The Hills hasn't even really begun, yet I think this is just the beginning," she told MTV News about Lauren's decision to leave. "We don't need her. We'll miss her. I just don't know if we need her."

And while the future Mrs. Pratt is convinced that Lauren's reality retirement is for the best ("she hasn't been wanting to be do this for a while" Heidi observes) she's made no secret of her willingness to take over LC's headlining duties.

"I love The Hills and I definitely don't want to go anywhere anytime soon," she told MTV. "That's my home and I'm so grateful to be on it, so we'll see."
