In 2016, Kristin alleged to Us Weekly that a producer told Lo, Audrina and Stephanie Pratt that he would “buy them presents if they called me out on camera for doing drugs.” She said Lo asked for a Birkin bag, but “never ended up getting the Birkin” for her comments.

She added, “It ended with all of the girls and I, our managers, agents, producers and lawyers in a room. I was told it wasn’t going to be a story line, and sure enough, it was on the first episode [of season 6].”

CelebHomes News has reached out to Lo’s rep and The Hills producers for comment, but hasn’t heard back. CelebHomes News contacted Kristin and got no response. 

The alleged handbag incident was an important turning point for the cast, according to Audrina. “That was a moment that we all were just, like, ‘OK, enough is enough,'” Audrina shared. We all met with our attorneys and decided to take our stand.  

She said, “People can believe anything on reality TV, even if some of the shows are manipulated or hyped up to get ratings.” You start to get pissed at producers.”
