The Hills kicked off season 5 with its typical drama between Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag. But will there be more of a bark than a bite?

Conrad’s sidekick Lo Bosworth tells PEOPLE that “everything is fine” between the former friends, but “the next few episodes will be a bit of back and forth.”

Though the entire cast isn’t done filming the season yet, Bosworth, who stepped out Thursday for the opening of a new Hollywood nightclub Halo, is thinking good thoughts for the finale. “Everybody’s hoping for a positive ending that really wraps everything up,” she says.

And what about Lauren’s off-camera love life with boyfriend Kyle Howard? According to Lo, “With Kyle, he’s an actor and so for contractual reasons he’s not on The Hills. Actors and reality show — it doesn’t really mix. And so for him, I think the reason he’s not on the show really is business.”

But best bud LC has her own reasons for keeping her beau behind the camera. “She went into this season knowing it was going to be her last,” Lo says, “so she didn’t really want to share that part of her life with everybody.” — Abby Stern
