Spencer’s new gig comes just weeks after MTV announced that they had cancelled The Hills: New Beginnings after two seasons.
According to TMZ, it was alleged that the original stars of The Hills had ‘major issues’ with the reboot, including the recent exploration by producers to bring on ‘younger cast members.’

The outlet’s sources claimed that producers thought the inclusion of ‘younger’ members would ‘diversify’ the cast but the notion was shot down by some of the original stars.
It was also alleged that ‘some’ of the original stars believed that The Hills: New Beginnings ‘wasn’t the show MTV promised them’ and that it sometimes felt ‘forced with fake storylines and confessionals.’
Aside from alleged friction, it was also claimed that COVID-19 was to blame for the show’s untimely cancelation since the strict protocols it made it increasingly harder to shoot and coordinate schedules for a large ensemble cast.
Spencer and wife Heidi Montag had been outspoken critics of some of their cast members in press interviews, claiming that many of them didn’t want to reveal their real lives on camera and were too focused on trying to look perfect.
