MTV Ditches Lauren Conrad’s Show — Conrad Issues Angry Response

Written by , Posted in General

Lauren Conrad sure knows how to bite the hand that feeds her. MTV isn’t moving forward with her show and Conrad responded to the news, saying, “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. 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.” May I just say that it’s extremely unprofessional for someone in the business to insult a network for not picking up a show? Good luck getting another deal with MTV, Conrad. I’d also like to point out that MTV probably let Conrad down easy by saying it was too “high brow.” I imagine that if they said what they really meant, the conversation would have ended at, “Lauren, you’re a little too boring for our network, so we’ve nixed you.”
