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.

This is not the first time that a person associated with The Hills has claimed that the drama was less than authentic, so Landon‘s comments should not be super shocking. Landon told Page Six, “With The Hills, I didn’t feel that comfortable developing my story. They wanted me to go after so-and-so’s boyfriend and all this. That’s not me.” At this point, no one is at all surprised to hear this type of claim. Nevertheless, as a die hard fan of the faux reality show, I am wondering whose boyfriend MTV was pushing her to steal and I’m sure I’m not the only one who is curious.
Landon also felt like she was not experienced enough to take on the reality life. She said, “I wasn’t on the show that much because, at the time, I really wanted to build my career. I was in my twenties and I wasn’t ready for it.” How refreshing. A twenty-something girl who is not desperate for fame and preferred to focus on her career. She is a real novelty, that’s for sure.

Landon has been on Southern Charm for two seasons and she feels like that is a way better fit for her. Landon explained, “Hanging out at the beach with all of my guy friends is me, I feel comfortable with that.” That makes sense. I don’t blame her at all for declining the opportunity to steal someone else’s boyfriend on a nationally televised show. Hanging with people that she is really friends with and living out her actual life seems like a much more enjoyable gig to me.
Now, I have so many Hills related questions that I would love to ask Landon. First and foremost, if she still keeps in touch with Lauren and/or Heidi.
