Image Credit: MTVJust when I was starting to move on with my life, The Hills pulls me back in. After a much buzzed-about series finale on Tuesday, which led fans to believe the entire six seasons of the series was fake, one cast member is dispelling possible conclusions and defending the reality of the show. Today, Lo Bosworth posted this message to fans on her website:

TWIST! Tuesday night, viewers said in disappointed shock, “OMG was ‘The Hills’ really fake all this time?” I mean, that’s what you guys have been saying forever, right? Ha ha. Don’t worry. It wasn’t fake. I have never shot any ‘Hills’ scenes on a stage of any kind.

To retract the closure we gained from finale, or what some may call, “Okay, I no longer have to feel stupid for thinking this is real,” would be an insult to fans. But Lo’s explanation also continues what the series finale was so brilliant in doing: getting people to talk about The Hills more than anyone has in the last year. But how much is too much? When will we reach The Hills‘ saturation point? Sure the finale was impressive (some of you even called it brilliant), but it’s over. There are other, more important, respectable shows to think about. Right?

What do you think, PopWatchers? Is this just an attempt to comfort disappointed fans? Will we ever know if The Hills was real or fake? And do we care?
