During the third season, Conrad ended her friendship with Montag after she suspected that Montag and Pratt were responsible for rumors of a sex tape involving herself and her former boyfriend Jason Wahler; the ensuing feud carried through each subsequent season in which Conrad appeared.
(After three years together, Conrad and Howard ended their relationship in 2011.) However, in the July 2009 issue of Cosmopolitan, she stated that producers had pressured her into a reconciliation with Montag throughout the season, adding that she was displeased when they would not allow otherwise.The 27-year-old’s high school girlfriend Alex wed Kyle Johnson on October 25 at the Calamigos Ranch in Malibu – the very spot where Jason tied the knot with his ‘everything’ Ashley Slack a year earlier.‘I just found it funny that she got married at the same exact venue that I did,’ he told Us. ‘I grew up very fortunate, I was privileged, I have a great family, my own morals and everything were lost through that experience of the entertainment business and it was something that I’ll never forget and it’s brought me exactly to where I am today.’‘The first thing [people] ask me is “Do you blame those shows? It hit hard, and I was able to see it sooner than later.’When Us Weekly asked the star what advice he would give his younger self, Jason initially quipped: ‘Don’t drink.’ But he then added to the website: ‘I was so caught up with stuff on the outside — what society depicts is awesome whether it’s fame, money, cars — it’s important to embrace in everything and spend more time with family and friends and things that I cherish so much now.’As for why she decided to do the show, the newlywed said: ‘We had such a following from Laguna and we are amazed at the amount of people we had following us still 10 years later.
