“That’s false, Lauren Conrad and I never dated,” Jenner said to his co-host on the Brody Jenner Podcast with Dr. Mike Dow, as Dow read a list of Jenner’s ex-girlfriends. “Lauren and I have always been just friends,” he continued. “We worked together on a show called The Hills where we had to pretend like we were dating, but we never dated.” In addition to Conrad, Dow’s list of Jenner’s former dalliances included Avril Lavigne, Kristin Cavallari and Nicole Richie.
Jenner admitted that his relationship with Kristin Cavallari was also staged during the time they were filming the MTV reality show. “I dated Kristin when we were very young… when she was on Laguna Beach and I was on a show called Princes of Malibu with Spencer Pratt,” he said. “We met at a party in Hollywood, but during [The Hills] when we filmed, Kristin and I did not date, we were not hooking up.” Cavallari is now happily married to NFL player, Jay Cutler, and the mother of two boys.
So this means reality TV is not real? Hold on a second, our world is tumbling down around us.
While his The Hills relationships may all have been a facade, we know one name on Dr. Dow’s list that was for real: Avril Lavigne. The two went public with their relationship on Twitter in 2010 and were often seen partying together in Las Vegas before breaking up in early 2012. At one point, Jenner had even shaved the letter “A” into the side of his hair in honor of his punk-rock princess.
While the son of Olympic athlete, Bruce Jenner, might have been all about scripted relationships and TV drama when he was younger, it seems that nowadays, he’s content keeping things low-profile. Even though the reigning reality TV queen, Kim Kardashian, is his stepsister, he opted out of flying overseas for her extravagant wedding to Kanye West this past May.
