Lauren Conrad ducked back into her apartment building after a hike with a friend in Runyon Canyon yesterday. There are only a few more episodes left with Lauren and according to his Twitter, Spencer is ready to see Kristin Cavallari step in. While LC seems pretty immune to the drama these days, the same can't be said for The Hills where she was put in a tough situation by Stephanie at work. The rest of the cast also dealt with their own conflicts as Heidi faced off with Spencer's pretty bartender, Audrina broke things off with Justin Bobby over a shortened meal, and the phones caused trouble as usual — all of which is a reminder to Lauren why she's leaving the show behind.
