"And y'all wonder why the bestie in my head Lauren Conrad just minds her business, lol."

'The Hills' is making a come back after nine years and it's where all the reality TV hype kicked off. Before the days of Love Island, 'The Hills' followed the lives of several teens just trying to make it in Los Angeles. The '00s reboot is rumoured to be debuting on April 15 on MTV and some of the old favourites will be coming back with it.

People are losing it over Ellen Pompeo calling out a magazine for its lack of diversity

Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge, Stephanie Pratt and Whitney Port will be returning, while 'The O.C.' actress Mischa Barton is one of the new girls on the block. Sadly, the show's original narrator Lauren Conrad, won't be taking part this time.


Some of 'The Hills: New Beginnings' cast sat down with Vogue to chat about what's coming up in the new series. However, when Heidi was questioned about diversity on the show it got all kinds of awkward.

Heidi was asked if she wishes there was more diversity on 'The Hills', which has always been an all white cast. And her response was, um, baffling.

"We don't all look the same," she explained. "I mean, Audrina has darker hair... Mischa has darker hair. We're California girls and we're a group of friends, and that just happens to be the group that came together. But you know that's just how the show is."

She finished with a classic "save" too, adding: "I have other very diverse friends that are not featured on the show."

So hair colour means diversity now, oh, okay! And can we talk about the setting… why the huge, creepy paintings in the background?!


Needless to say, the internet was screaming – and not one bit surprised at her answer.
