Page Six is reporting that PRODUCERS of MTV's ratings juggernaut "The Hills" played matchmaker in Paris, hoping the young women on the "reality" show would hook-up with some Frenchmen for the cameras - and it worked.
Before Lauren Conrad and her Teen Vogue counterpart, Whitney Port, went to Paris to "work" at the Crillon Ball, producers were "frantically calling publicists to see if anyone knew any guys to set the girls up with in Paris. If they had a love affair there, then it would look better," a source said.
One publicist came through, and the girls were set up with the band Rock & Roll, "the King Cobras of New Wave Rock," who are set to star in the new Roberto Cavalli campaign this spring. And, at least for Conrad - who had been "flirting" with Brody Jenner, although spies say the two were never more than friends - the ruse worked.
"Lauren was filmed riding off with the guitar player, Matthias, on the back of his bike," our source said. "They hooked up." The band's biggest hit is "Loser, Boozer, Jacuzzi-User."
"The Hills" producers have admitted reshooting certain scenes in the past. A show rep declined comment this time around.
When will the drama end for The Hills....I know I really liked the previews of the trip to Paris and it wouldn't be as hot without a romance. May be they should have just flown Brody out there???
