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.
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.
Happy Halloween weekend! The reality stars are already starting to celebrate! Teresa Giudice and Dolores Catania hit the town together last night, attending the Fresco Da Franco Halloween Ball at Fresco Restaurant in Montclair, NJ.
We have a few blasts from reality shows past, too! Whitney Port (winner for worst dressed, I think!), Paris Hilton, Aviva Drescher, Kelly Bensimon, former Princesses Long Island star Chanel Omari and others.
As a lover of fashion, bad television, and all things post-Simple Life Nicole Richie, you would think I'd be all over NBC's Fashion Star. However, I am not. I just couldn't get into it to save my life…and this is coming from someone who plans to dress as Austin Scarlett from Project Runway for Halloween this year. To be fair, there are only so many hours in a day, so much space on my DVR, and, in addition to ridiculous amount of reality television I watch both for blogging and pleasure (it's fab too when those overlap!), I am also addicted Law and Order: SVU, HIMYM, and Happy Endings. It's A LOT of television.
I'm going to give it another chance though this season, and here's why: Elle Macpherson, the show's creator and former host has chosen Louise Roe to replace her, and I think it's an interesting change-up for the series. Not that I don't like Elle (she had a great work-out video back in the late '90s), but she's just not made for hosting. Sure, she's drop-dead gorgeous, but did you see her on Friends? It's like watching paint dry. Louise Roe has the fashion knowledge AND the hosting chops…not to mention she's just obscure enough to be intriguing.
Who am I kidding? Jessica Simpson is still on the show, and she hasn't been relevant since she divorced Nick Lachey. I doubt I need to point out what a sad state of affairs it is when an ex-boy bander from a boy band on the fringe of legitimate boy bands makes one relevant, but I digress. How did Fashion Star even get picked up for a sophomore season?
