Count on Heidi Montag to flub a question on the lack of diversity on the cast of MTV’s “The Hills” and its upcoming reboot “New Beginnings” with Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port and former “The O.C.” star and reality-show newcomer Mischa Barton.

Asked in a Vogue magazine video interview if she wishes “there was a little more diversity represented,” Montag responds, “We don’t all look the same. I mean, Audrina has darker hair. I feel like Mischa has darker hair.”

See, they’re not all blondes so… diversity!

Still, Montag acknowledges the narrow focus of the reality show’s depiction of the privileged life of Southern California young adults.

“But yeah, we’re California girls and it’s a group of friends, and that just happens to be the group that came together,” she continues. “But you know, that’s just the way the show was. I have other, very diverse friends that are not featured on the show.”

The original edition of “The Hills,” a spinoff of “Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County,” aired for six seasons on MTV from 2006 to 2010 and followed aspiring fashion industry figure Lauren Conrad, her housemate, Montag and their friends Patridge and Port.
