Feeling fooled by The Hills? Don’t be, says Lo Bosworth. Just because its finale ended with a big twist, showing stars Kristin Cavallari and Brody Jenner on what looked like a movie set, doesn’t mean the series was scripted.

And despite what Kristin recently told PEOPLE, Lo, 23, says, “Don’t worry. It wasn’t fake. I have never shot any Hills scenes on a stage of any kind.”

Writing on her blog,, Lo explains that the end was a nod to constant buzz that MTV’s hit reality show wasn’t really real. “We were simply poking fun in the way that our viewers have done since the show began to air,” she says.

Though she admits “some relationships were pushed by producers,” they all blossomed into a real-life friendship – and some were genuine even before cameras started rolling. “Lauren Conrad, Kristin, and I have known each other since we were all under 5-ft. tall,” she says. “No conspiracy there.”

So, the finale’s twist “was just a big joke’s on you, without it really, truly being one,” she says. “Just messin’ with you guys a little. In the end, we’re all in the same boat, right?” – Eunice Oh
