Lauren Conrad took a break from her complicated life of interning and gossiping to help plant trees in LA on Wednesday. The reality star posed happily (which is pretty much her trademark) while giving back to the community, and now she's got another reason to smile. MTV has renewed "The Hills" for a 3rd season set to air this summer. Guilty pleasure or not, The Hills has definitely captured the attention of MTV's audiences. People will definitely tune in again to find out whether or not Heidi finally wises up and dumps that jerk Spencer.
