Real or fake? 

No, I'm not wondering about our favorite reality star's physical attributes! I'm asking the question many of us die-hard Hills fans have had on our minds for months: Is the show orchestrated by producers and scripted by writers, or is it really a window into the actual lives of L.C. and company?

I ran into Ms. Conrad herself this past week, and I let her answer the burning Q in the video above. She also weighed in on her current feelings for frenemy Heidi Montag and her on-again, off-again boyfriend Brody Jenner. Just wait till you see her blush at the mere mention of his name...

Enjoy!
