Lauren Conrad looks to be returning to the reality television scene soon with a new show for MTV.

The former Hills cast member has reportedly confirmed the project during a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, saying the show will follow her foray into the fashion world.

“It would be safe to say [yes]…it would follow my career,” Conrad told Seacrest.

“I’ve always been open to doing reality again,” she added.

Filming on the news series is expected to begin in October with more details announced soon.

MTV is launching a show based around Heidi Montag’s drastic change of appearance due to plastic surgery and the way media can influence the way we perceive beauty.

The series, entitled Heidi’s Face, will aim to educate viewers into the ways in which the media manipulates images and therefore give people unrealistic ideas of beauty.

Executive producer Lisa Stokoe said: “The results of the initiative surprised us all and truly highlight the need to educate young people about what really goes on behind the scenes to achieve the images of perfection presented in today’s media.”

The series will transform its male presenter into a woman using digital technology in order to highlight the fact that the audience can be tricked into believing something is real when it is not.

Stokoe said: “We wanted to demonstrate the influence of digital retouching technology and the final result certainly proves that even the most extreme changes can be achieved in just a matter of clicks! The stunt will support our in-house show Heidi’s Face and will indicate – in a fun, comical way – how unrealistic and unattainable these ideals of perfection are.”

A new season of MTV’s “The Hills” started up again last night and while viewers can expect more drama than ever, they should stop living under the illusion that the show is real. On Monday, new star Kristin Cavallari spoke with the Los Angeles times and said what some have always thought – that the show is entirely scripted. While producers of the show, and some of the other stars still deny that it’s fake, Cavallari wants everyone to know otherwise. Hmm, wonder if that means she’s really not so dramatic and confrontational as the show depicts her, or if that’s all true.

“I pretty much do anything they have me do because I don’t care.  I mean, we’re filming a TV show. Let’s make it interesting. Let’s have a good time with it,” Cavallari told The Los Angeles Times in a Monday report. Cavallari went on to say that “Everyone is trying to get story lines and create drama in their lives. It’s just so… fake. There’s no truth to it. At all.” Cavallari also compares the Hills to Curb Your Enthusiasm in another staetment “They tell us what to talk about,” she told The Times. “Listen, I have fun with it. They film Curb Your Enthusiasm the same way.” and makes it clear that for her, the Hills is just a job. “What else would I see it as? Hanging out with my friends? That’s not it. It’s a job. It’s pretty easy,” she told The Times.
“The thing is, if this was a reality show about my life, they would follow me going to auditions and studying with acting coaches, but they didn’t want to show that because it’s not glamorous.  They make it seem like we have perfect lives and like we have all this money.”
