Laguna Beach was introduced to the reality TV world in 2004, and we will never get enough of watching the financially blessed group of high-school students interact in their exclusive natural habitat. The cars, the houses, and the early 21-st century fashion blew my mind back in the day. And that California golden sunshine enveloping everything. Poetry and drama colliding.
The appeal of the cast can’t be overlooked. Those kids brought the drama. Kristin Cavallari butting heads with Lauren Conrad made the show. Was it only because of Kristen’s then-boyfriend Stephen Colletti? Perhaps the two divas would have avoided friendship either way.
Revisiting the show feels highly enticing. And Dear Media is answering the demand by creating a two seasons rewatch podcast. Laguna Beach alums and former sweethearts Kristin and Stephen will be hosting the 40 episode series. Wow, can you imagine what those two might reveal from behind the scenes?
Entertainment Tonight revealed that the podcast will be titled Back to the Beach With Kristin and Stephen, with the premiere set for summer 2022. The Uncommon James founder commented on the podcast’s premise. She said, “eighteen years later and we’re finally ready to revisit Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. Stephen and I can’t wait to take listeners behind the scenes of what really went down, how it impacted us, and to relive those high-school days- the good, the bad and the ugly.”
Stephen issued an independent statement, “I haven’t seen the series since the show aired and look forward to unpacking a treasure trove of anecdotes for our audience. Kristin brings the heat and I’ll try to keep up…some things never change.”
There will be other voices adding to the podcast. Dear Media has promised, “salacious, scandalous and sensational behind-the-scenes stories,” by other Laguna Beach alums, as well as celebrity guests and production insiders.
Zealous fans will be happy to know that the podcast is interactive. Meaning, Stephen and Kristin are ready to listen to your reaction! The duo will be taking questions from callers on a hotline. Hopefully someone can explain why Lauren could have possibly chose ex-boyfriend Jason Wahler over a trip to Paris.
