FANS of MTV's The Hills have long-wondered whether the reality program is scripted, or indeed real.
The show is considered one of the best and most popular reality TV shows of all time.
Is The Hills scripted or real?
Show producers have said that they've tried to keep The Hills as authentic as possible.
Without the use of typical reality television "confessionals," producers have tried their best to relay cast emotions as scenes unfold.
Creator Adam DiVello said, “if we wrote the show, we would have had much bigger story lines than what we were dealing with. I think we would have had gigantic, soap-opera-type story lines. We were kind of shackled to the reality of what these people’s situations were.”
DiVello also said that he accepted that there were times when they would miss certain things that happen off-camera, and in those instances, they would need to be re-created by the cast.

After they had all the footage they needed, production would rework it in editing.
Over the years, some of the cast have claimed that they were forced to create tension in the series because that’s what the show-runners wanted.
Cast member Audrina Patridge told E News!:
“As it went on, it was very manipulated and guided and you’re kinda put in these scenarios where you would show up and you didn’t know what you were in for until you were there, and you wanted to run out but they locked the door on you.
How can I watch The Hills: New Beginnings?

Is Heidi Montag pregnant?
Heidi Montag broke down in tears on social media as she admitted she's 'trying for another child' with her husband Spencer Pratt.
The reality star made the revelation as she marked her 12th wedding anniversary.
The loved-up couple are already parents to son Gunner, 3.
In an emotional post on her Instagram stories, Heidi told her followers: "Oh my gosh, I realize it's Spencer and I's 12-year wedding anniversary.
"We don't count the one in November cause that's when we eloped, but this is our legal Hills wedding and I was just getting all emotional cause we've been together for 14 years…
"Been through so much and love each other – [we've] become stronger and better…"
As the tears started to flow, she continued: "Oh…! And what a blessing to have Gunner… trying for another one… healthy – so thankful."
Her heartfelt speech comes just a few days after the 34-year-old was 'bodyshamed' by her sister-in-law, Stephanie Pratt.
Stephanie, 35, claimed Heidi looked 'pregnant' in a bikini snap.
