The Hills is back and it’s already alive – with more drama off screen than on. Spencer Pratt‘s trouble-making younger sister Stephanie Pratt has announced that she wants off the MTV “reality” show, declaring, “I think Audrina, Lo and I are all going to leave after these 10 episodes.”

Lauren Conrad has moved on to write novels and design a fashion line, Audrina Patridge has scored her own reality show with Survivor producer Mark Burnett and with Kristin Cavallari back on the scene, Stephanie is having second thoughts about staying on.

“I don’t know how much more I can take of The Hills,” she tells Hollyscoop. “The Hills is very brutal.” But her imminent departure isn’t linked with Kristin’s comeback, “It’s not because of Kristin,” the 23-year-old insists “I was going to stay and see what happens after these ten episodes, but I just don’t think I can stand The Hills anymore.”

Despite her criticism of the smash hit series, which has made stars of its characters, Stephanie concedes, “I think the show is going to be so awesome. It’s not going to be boring like all the other shows where they only focus on their work.”

And what about Kristin, 22, whose appearance on season six was trailed on commercials with the phrase, “the Bitch is Back”? “It’s not the question of her being that bad,” Stephanie says, “It’s more like, is she for real?”
