Lauren Conrad's new show pulled by MTV for being 'too high brow'
The network has decided to pull the plug on our favorite reality starlet's new series, which would focus on her fashion line, EW reports.
"We decided not to go ahead with the show. She did do a pilot,"says David Janollari, EVP, Head of Programming for MTV. "There were talks about whether we could somehow manage to put together a special based on that footage but that's also a big question mark based on her interest in that and the finances. We love her! We would love her on our network!"
Conrad has released her own statement to address the situation and says the reason the series was canned was because she refused to have her personal life filmed a la her two previous shows, "Laguna Beach" and "The Hills." Celebrities, start taking notes because this is how you release a statement:
"We sold a show to MTV, filmed it and are really proud of the final result. MTV felt the subject matter was too high brow for their audience and offered me the opportunity to change the show by incorporating more of my personal life," she says. "We agreed going into the project that this show would be an aspirational one, focusing on my career and my goals and not my personal relationships. We delivered the show that we sold and are sorry MTV didn't feel their viewers were savvy enough to appreciate it." We love you, gurl!
Janollari says, "It was a great attempt but it just didn't feel like a perfect fit for us now." If only Conrad would have learned how to fistpump like the "Jersey Shore" crew...
At least this now gives us a reason to break out our old "Team LC" shirts.
