Report: Lauren Conrad and "Lo" Bosworth moving out of 'Hills' home
By Christopher Rocchio, 01/28/2009
The Hills could apparently get a little quieter in the coming weeks.
Lauren Conrad and Lauren "Lo" Bosworth are leaving their Hollywood Hills home for a high-rise complex in Los Angeles' Westwood area, E! News reported Wednesday.
"[Conrad] wanted more security, and being in a building with a doorman will allow her that," a source told E! News.
On Tuesday, The Hills co-stars Stephanie Pratt, Brody Jenner and Jayde Nicole were spotted at Conrad and Bosworth's digs for a barbecue, which was filmed by MTV camera crews, according to E! News.
Conrad and Bosworth's representatives told E! News had no comment on the matter, however if the pair are moving, their neighbors are likely to be the ones doing the partying.
Last August, The Los Angeles Times reported that nearby residents had complained that the neighborhood had become overrun with production crew members, paparazzi and The Hills gawkers since Conrad had moved into the three-bedroom, Mediterranean-style house in February.
"They're running an ongoing production studio in our neighborhood," next-door neighbor David Brumer told The Times.
More than 30 residents signed a petition demanding that the city revoke The Hills' filming permit, however FilmLA, which coordinates filming in Los Angeles, found the show in be in compliance with its permit restrictions -- which include requirements that the show not park production vehicles on the street and shuttle all crew members to the house.
Instead, FilmLA blamed The Hills viewers and "homes of the stars" bus tours for the neighbors' frustration.
"We've tried to convey that we recognize that residents are upset. The number of looky-loos and tour buses would make anybody upset," FilmLA vice president Todd Lindgren told The Times.
