It feels like almost every successful movie or TV show these days is actually a reboot. As Tom Sandovalwould say “people love nostalgia”- pronounced like “nuh-stahl-GEE-uh,” of course. The Jersey Shore reboot is killing it, so why not bring back another MTV classic?
Could The Hills be returning to the network for a reboot of its own? Some “inside sources” say that it is being considered, whatever that means. Most of the stars are down to do it (obviously), but there is one major hold out: Lauren Conrad. This should shock absolutely no one. She left the show before it even ended. She has a successful lifestyle brand. She’s happily making money and keeping her family out of the spotlight. She does not need this show- although it would be great to have her back narrating the action just like old times. She could even pull a Cameran Eubanksand just talk about everyone else’s drama while she hides her own personal life from the reality TV cameras.
It was an eventful weekend for the Kardashians and other reality stars. We’ve got an all new roundup of reality star photos for you! Khloe Kardashian not only celebrated her baby shower, but also her baby daddy’s birthday. Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky were among the many guests for Tristan Thompson‘s birthday celebration at Beauty & Essex this weekend. Also there: Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and many more! Other Kardashians (Kim, Kourtney and more) were spotted attending a high school basketball game together.
Another big event this weekend: the iHeartRadio Music Awards. We have photos of Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and her husband Edwin, Dance Moms star JoJo Siwa, and more.
I was all about The Hills back in the day. Sure, we were all rooting for Lauren Conrad to succeed, but all of the viewers have to admit that it was Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt’s antics that really made the show interesting to watch. They were always providing the entertainment. And now they are joining (most of) their fellow Hills alums in the parents club.
A lot of people doubted their relationship, but they’ve actually been married for eight years, so I’m a little surprised they didn’t have a baby sooner, but I love how Heidi is pregnant at the same time Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port are. In my head, I’m dreaming of Heidi and Lauren’s babies becoming friends, but I know LC would never go for that. Aside from that, I can’t wait for more cheesy photo shoots and hopefully some reality TV appearances involving this pregnancy and the eventual baby. I am in the minority on this one, but I am so on board with a Speidi resurgence.
Love him or hate him, it is pretty interesting that The Apprentice star Donald Trump went from being a reality TV star to a presidential candidate. It got me thinking about celebrities that I enjoy watching on reality TV who I would love to see run for president.
To make it clear, I don’t necessarily think any of these people should actually be president, just that it definitely would have been entertaining if we had them in the mix at some point during the nomination and election processes. Also, this list is meant to be a complete joke, so chill out with the political commentary and just have fun with the “what if” political possibilities.
If you thought that Landon Clements looked familiar when she first joined Southern Charm, you might have caught on to something. No, you’re not going crazy. You might have actually seen her before on another TV series. Pre-Southern Charm, Landon appeared on the iconic reality series The Hills.
Wait. What!? She was on the show because she was friends with both Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag. Not only that, but Landon also worked for events producer Brent Bolthouse, where Heidi also “worked.”
The people at MTV even approached Landon about being a full-time cast member, but she turned them down. Umm, come again?! The Hills was such a major television phenomenon. How could she not be into that? Well, it turns out that Landon had some pretty valid reasons to decline the offer.
The bad news is that they appear to be back, but the good news is it doesn't sound like they will be procreating any time soon. Of whom am I speaking? Why Speidi, of course! On the heels of debuting an E! special, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt also admitted to blowing through millions of dollars at the height of their reality infamy. After Shock: Heidi and Spencer aired on Monday, and the couple spoke candidly about playing villains on the a myriad of reality shows, beginning with The Hills.
Us Weekly breaks down the hour-long insider look at the pair, noting that it's difficult to tell just how "real" the pair was on the E! show. Spencer shared with viewers, "I don't think we've ever gotten to be the real Heidi and Spencer on TV," adding that the show was all about faking scenes and creating drama.
It's been quite some time since we parted ways with those crazy kids from The Hills. With the exception of the two queen bees and arch rivals Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari, most of the cast from the Hills and it's predecessor Laguna Beach have faded off into obscurity, only managing a place in the spotlight thanks to DUI mug shots and quickly canceled reality shows.
As you recall, LC had her fill of bad boys, setting her sights on Jason Wahler in high school. After a brief fling, he disappeared, only to resurface as her main squeeze on The Hills. The poor guy clearly has had his issues with alcohol, and their relationship was very volatile. After Jason, Lauren found comfort in the arms of Doug Reinhardt, a former baseball player and total jackleg. He was so skeezy I needed to shower after watching a scene with him in it. Bless his little rich Laguna heart was he a dolt!
In the beginning there was a housewives franchise for any given night of the week, and then, there was Watch What Happens Live. I must admit I was beside myself when Andy Cohen decided to make his fete a nightly deal. I guess I overestimated the amount of guests who would entertain me in the clubhouse. I don't care about has-beens or random current reality stars that know nothing of all things Bravo. I want dish and dirt and a worthy jackhole.
Ask and ye shall receive. My Monday night WWHL was everything I like to see happening in the clubhouse. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Taylor Armstrong was present to clear up any rumors that she needed and intervention, and, I'll be honest, as much as I dislike her on the show, she was pretty funny and self-depreciating with ol' Andy. Joining her was The Hills'Kristin Cavalarri who looked fabulous after just having a baby boy. MTV's resident bitch was likeable and (dare I say it?) hilarious during her debut night in the clubhouse.
