Harsh! Brody Jenner gets honest about his ‘romance’ with Lauren

Earlier this month, Brody Jenner shocked fans of The Hills when he revealed that much of his relationship with Lauren Conrad was fake for the purposes of the MTV reality show.

Now the 31-year-old has given us some more insights into just how fickle the whole set-up was, when he revealed that he and Lauren really were just friends off set. "A lot of that show was scripted. A lot was improv," he told Yahoo! Style this week.

Describing LC as nothing more romantic than a "dear friend," the reality star said it was funny to have to pretend to be attracted to her during filming.

"It was pretty funny to have to live that reality…We were just friends," he said. "We’d film a scene of us kissing or being in this lovey-dovey scene, and then right after it would be like, 'Cut,' and we’d be like, 'Great to see you,' and we’d go our separate ways."

Was it really all for show? This GIF begs to differ:

During his time on the show, Brody was also linked to Lauren's pals Jen Bunney, Audrina Patridge and later Kristin Cavallari. However he now says those relationships were fakes, having been over-dramatised for the cameras.

"I didn’t have sex with Jen Bunney," he said. "I didn’t hook up with Audrina [Patridge]. I didn’t hook up with any of these girls. And then you get all these people saying, 'Oh, Brody’s a male wh**e. He sleeps with all these girls,' when in actuality I didn’t do that."

As for his other co-stars, Brody said that Spencer Pratt in particular loved the "fake" element of the show and played up to it often. "The crazy thing about Spencer is that he manifested his own destiny," Brody explained.

"'He said, 'I want to be the biggest villain in the whole world. I want people to hate me.; He scripted out all those moments on The Hills. He creates all that drama, but then it actually caught up to him."
