Stopping by “The View” earlier today to plug her new novel “LA Candy,” Lauren Conrad cleared up a tiny detail regarding a telephone apology Spencer Pratt made to her on a May episode of “The HIlls”: She wasn’t on the other end of the phone call.

Fans of the show will no-doubt remember the seemingly sincere apology Pratt made, in which he expressed his regret for spreading sex-tape rumors, taking away Lauren’s best friend (Heidi Montag) and basically being an all-around jerk. The call was designed to put things to rest between the two in time for Speidi’s highly publicized (second) wedding.

As LC revealed earlier today, however, Spencer might be kind of a….what’s a nice way of saying it? Charlatan. Who knew?
