The Hills star, Stephanie Pratt, talks to Us Weekly magazine this week about hating her body and her terrifying secret struggle with bulimia.
Stephanie opens up about her eating disorder for the first time, saying it was sparked by the pressure of appearing alongside her super-thin friends on the hit MTV reality show. I’m guessing the “super thin” friends would have to include Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge, Heidi Pratt, and pretty much every female that ever appeared on The Hills.
Stephanie, who is described as being 5-foot-7 also reveals to US that she began bingeing and purging after watching a scene she shot with Lauren Conrad in 2007 after first joining the cast: “I was horrified. I remember saying, ‘I can’t believe how huge I look walking over to Lauren.’”
The cover story also teases about how Stephanie once attempted suicide. Hmm, will be reserving my personal comments on this one.
As we reported earlier, Laguna Hill alumni and nemesis of Lauren Conrad, Kristin Cavallari is set to replace her on The Hills. Well it has now been officially confirmed. The 22-year old’s first appearance will be the May 31st season finale (she catches the bouquet at Heidi and Spencer’s wedding, natch), she is then set to appear in 10 episodes this fall.
Kristin says she is fully prepared to stir things up. “It’s a TV show,” she explains. “I’m not going into it like, ‘I’m going to make great friendships with these people.’ It’s work! And drama sells. I think that’s why they’re bringing me in, because I know what works.” Cavallari had plenty more to reveal in her exclusive interview with EW.
On why she’s coming back to reality TV:
“The goal for me is to get my fans excited about me again. When I first started out, I had a celebrity name but I didn’t have the acting skills I have now. If I have some buzz with my name again, I feel like it will only help.”
On rumors that producers are plotting a romance between her and Justin Bobby (which The Hills producers deny):
“I have no idea! [laughs] I don’t think MTV would be like, ‘Oh you’re dating him now. This is your boyfriend.’ But they might try and set up situations. I’m totally cool with that. Again, it’s a TV show and they need to make it entertaining.”
On how her version of TheHills will differ from Lauren’s:
“I’m a completely different person than Lauren. I have a lot more energy. I’m more outgoing. I’m a little more spontaneous. And she has a boyfriend so she’s not dating on the show. I’m very open to dating and finding a guy.”
On introducing Heidi and Spencer:
“It’s so funny. I guess it was 4 years ago. I was dating Brody [Jenner] and Spencer was Brody’s best friend. I had known Heidi when she was friends with Lauren when we were still filming Laguna Beach. Heidi was like, ‘Hook me up with someone. I wanna meet a guy.’ And Brody and I were kinda like, ‘Well, maybe Spencer?’ We’ll see what happens.’ So we all went on a double date and they just hit it off right away and now they’re married.”
So it’s safe to draw from this interview that the Hills is now completely fake, and the producers pretty much write all the story lines.
The two douchebags known as Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag finally tied the knot this time. Despite faking a wedding last year, the two made sure this one was legitimate. TMZ reported the couple got a legit marriage license last week.
It is also reported that their Hills costar Lauren Conrad attended the wedding.
Alas! After years and years of denial, Spencer Pratt has finally admitted responsibility for spreading the sex tape rumors according to Lauren Conrad. At a Hills panel Tuesday in Hollywood, Lauren revealed that Spencer finally admitted that he was the one who spread the nasty rumors involving her and then boyfriend Jason Wahler.
“We actually have it on tape where he takes responsibility and apologizes for it,” says Lauren. “Sorry! Spoiler! Hey, four years, I waited for that!” Lauren also admits to being on more friendlier terms with both Spencer and Heidi these days saying, “We’re friendly, we can be in the same room.”
So will she be attending their wedding this weekend? “I think it was very nice of her to invite me, but I don’t think she expected me to come,” she said. We’ll take that as a big NO.
As the Hills might be coming to an end, Audrina continues to gear up for her own new reality show. She has teamed up with Survivor’s Mark Burnett and is now revealing details of her new show.
She tells PEOPLE, “It’s my life after The Hills, my journey. It’s going to be a little spicier, edgier, older.” The Hills had focused on her relationships with Lauren Conrad and sometimes boyfriend Justin Bobby, while her upcoming venture will offer up a closer look at her Hollywood lifestyle.
Audrina goes on to say, “There’s going to be new love, romances,” she promises. While she can’t say whether or not he [Justin Bobby] will appear on her show, there will be a resolution to their stormy union before the end of The Hills.
“It could resolve things in a good way or in a bad way. You’ll have to see,” she says. “But put it this way, I don’t really hold back. I just let it all out this season. I fight back.” Never knew Audrina was interesting enough to carry her own show, but if Whitney Port can, then so can anyone.
The two fame whores known as Heidi and Spencer are said to be planning a new wedding to air on The Hills this season. Which would make sense being that the last wedding they had in November was a complete fake, and a cheap publicity stunt.
“This will be the real wedding,” says a source close to the couple. “It’s being filmed as the season finale for The Hills.”
The controversial reality couple are said to have invited about 110 guests to the nuptials, but the list is expected to grow larger as the wedding date nears. A source says the couple plans to wed in a sunset ceremony and is looking at a rooftop location for a reception. Wishing these two would just go away already.
