As the head of the Anti-Lauren Conrad campaign, Spencer Pratt does everything to cut ties with her including give up his best friend and his sister. Now, he is hoping to add member to his army, Holly Montag. As he explains to her, the #1 rule of the Speidi Household is NO Fraternizing with Lauren. Who is he, her father? Creeeepy. Like most people, Holly ignores Spencer’s crazy talk and calls up Lauren Conrad to meet up. Smart girl knows that she’d rather have LC on her side rather than Spencer. LC agrees to meet up with her and the two catch up at the bistro, Amandine Patisserie. Turns out LC and Holly are old friends and along with Heidi Montag, used to be so tight that they called themselves the ‘three musketeers.’ Dumas would turn over in his grave.
However, Heidi Montag is upset when Holly admits to her rendezvous with Lauren. When Heidi questions her loyalty, Holly quickly declares herself on Heidi’s side, but explains that when they used to all hang out, both Heidi and Lauren were like her little sisters. Unlike Spencer, Heidi does not black list her sister for hanging with the enemy. Instead, we finally see some humanity in Heidi as she admits that she does miss Lauren’s friendship since they have a “little time of fighting, but years of friendship.” Holly’s encouraging words: “nothing’s beyond repair” seem to work on Heidi as she ponders, “maybe one day by a miracle we’ll be friends again.” As Holly tries to push Heidi towards a friendship with LC, Whitney Port is discussing the same possibility with Lauren. Lauren explains that Holly is the most positive person she knows and is happy she is in Heidi’s life. Hmm, is Holly trying to rival Whitney’s good girl status? LC does miss Heidi as she tells Whitney, “You always miss a best friend.”
Seems like Audrina Patridge and Lauren Conrad are back on the best friendship road this episode as Lauren provides support for Audrina during an event that she plans. Kristen Loretta, the publicist for Epic Records, asks Audrina to set up a showcase for The White Tie Affair at The Roosevelt Hotel. It is up to Audrina as “the Epic girl” to ensure that the event runs smoothly and that the after party is packed, especially since the President of Epic Records, Charlie Walk, will be there. She invites Lauren who arrives with Lo Bosworth and Stephanie Pratt. See, even Lo is there to support Audrina. Okay, maybe she’s just there for the free show… and to annoy her. She knows that Justin is a sensitive topic but still asks Audrina if Justin is coming. LC quickly intervenes: “Way to be a buzz kill.” Justin had promised Audrina he would come, telling her that if she needs him there, he’ll be there. Even his hair is slicked back this episode and since he actually looks human, I trusted him. Of course he has to disappoint. Audrina admits that she knows not to invest her feelings or trust… or to expect anything from him. Hmmm… that makes for a great relationship. Good luck taming JBobby, Audrina.
