JUST IN! Lauren Conrad Blasts MTV Over Her Nixed TV Show

0204_lc_singleFormer "The Hills" star Lauren Conrad isn't feeling the love from MTV: The cable network has announced it will not pick up a new reality TV show she had been developing, and for which she had already shot a pilot episode.

David Janollari, the head of programming for MTV, told "Entertainment Weekly," of the planned show, which focused more on Conrad's professional life and fashion design aspirations,  "We decided not to go ahead with the show. She did do a pilot. 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...It was a great attempt but it just didn’t feel like a perfect fit for us now.”

But Conrad lashed back at MTV, issuing a statement Friday saying, “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. 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.”

I would have watched it. However, I will not be watching anything with trashy Audrina in it. MTV seems confused about its viewers interests

no offense but lauren no one wants to see a show about your fashion line and what have you. There's already shows like that. Hate all you want your a reality star. And your show isn't too savvy for us to watch honey. It might just be the opposite. Get off your high horse.

Hello? Sounds like The City with a new lead to me. I think it's pretty tacky of her to throw a "high brow" fit like that. Just release a statement, if one is even required, and be done with it.

What a waste of time. No one wants to watch a show on LC's goals and aspirations in the fashion world. Sounds lame, glad they nixed it.

Lauren, why dont you try to get Lifetime or Bravo to pick it up? MTV is pure trash now with Jersey shore, etc. I'm kinda glad they didn't pick up your show as you are too above MTV now and too classy. Shop it elsewhere, im sure you can get it picked up. Good Luck!!

Sounds so boring. Sorry Lauren, but MTV thrives on Jersey Shore and Skins b/c it's fun and racy. No one cares about your boring fashion line.

I think MTV is a little bit of a joke these days anyway. Jersey Shore is such a big deal to them that it was all the New Years show consisted of. THAT'S boring. They don't even do music anymore. They shouldn't be able to keep the name "MTV," which some people may not even realize is supposed to stand for Music Television. Forget MTV.

I think MTV sucks and I hope Lauren finds a classy network to work with. I guess now to have a reality show on MTV you have to be trashy and self destructive or 14 and pregnant. MTV you need to start uplifting women instead of turning them into young porn stars.
