There aren’t enough crystals in the world to calm Spencer Pratt’s ego. The Pratt Daddy Crystal maven has to be one of the most ridiculous reality TV villains of all time, (that’s a sincere compliment). Spencer knew from day one of his time on The Hills how to push people’s buttons – just ask Lauren Conrad who literally ran from the hills to get away from him.
Now, on The Hills: New Beginnings, Audrina Patridge, Brody Jenner, Justin Bobby Brescia, Jason Wahler, and Brandon Lee are all thinking they need to do the same thing. Spencer and wife, Heidi Pratt, have made everyone mad because they doubted Jason’s sobriety. Sure, it’s a horrible thing to do, but, if it wasn’t for this one remark about Jason’s sobriety, the show would have zero drama. Now, Spencer’s letting his co-stars know who’s bringing it and who isn’t.
My favorite weeknights are Wednesdays. This is because I get a double dose of BH drama with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and The Hills: New Beginnings. The latter brings me back to my teens with a potent shot of nostalgia – particularly whenever Brody Jenner and Audrina Patridge are on screen. Will they, or won’t they? Please do something more than flirt like you never left high school!
At this point though, I’ll take the nostalgia over RHOBH’s lack of anything interesting right now. Not much even happens on The Hills: New Beginnings– the drama is vague and dulled by everyone’s laid back California vibe. I still watch with glee, especially because insane characters and crystal moguls Heidi Pratt and Spencer Pratt seemingly live on another planet. Brody even seems to know that not much ever happens on the show – which is why he’s calling for Kristin Cavallari to come back full-time.
We all know David Foster as “my King” or rather Yolanda Hadid’s king on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. We also know David is an egomaniac with disdain for guests who try to sing along at his parties. David wants us to know that he absolutely DID NOT leave Yolanda because she had Lyme disease. Even though we already know that David is terrible at marriage.
According to Wikipedia, David married singer, B.J. Cook in the seventies. They had a daughter and divorced soon after. In the eighties, he was married four years to Rebecca Dyer. They had three daughters. In the nineties, he married Linda Thompson. Linda is noteworthy because she co-wrote one of the greatest Whitney Houston songs ever, I Have Nothing. She’s also Brody Jenner’s mom and stayed with David a whopping 15 years. From 2011 to 2017 David was married to Yolanda. Now, he’s married to Katharine McPhee. He’s 70. She’s 36.

The alternate universe of a charmed life in SoCal was a hit ten years ago and, as proven by the popularity of The Hills is still irresistible today. The life of an ultra-wealthy group of friends with problems only the 1% could dream of still draws in the viewers. We watched them living off their parents money in their early 20s. On shopped and partied their way into our hearts. A decade later, and some have added spouse and children into the mix. Maybe that makes the cast more relatable, aside from the obvious opulence of their houses, plastic surgeries, and wardrobes.
Also these days fans can keep up with the cast on social media. Maybe their real-time antics can be a bit of a spoiler, but it’s still fun to tune it and see how it went down. Take Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter. These two newlyweds seemed happy enough, though they were unable to agree on when to start a family. So when Kaitlynn was photographed making out with Miley Cyrus, it was a shock for fans who were still watching her onscreen with Brody.

During the original run of The Hills, Brody Jenner was known for his way with women. On The Hills: New Beginnings, Brody is a newlywed who has decided to showcase his marriage on reality TV. Apparently, he has learned nothing from almost every reality TV couple who has split after their prexisting problems were exacerbated by filming a reality show.
Brody and his wife Kaitlynn Carter have been passive agressively arguing since the first episode of the season. Their time on the show opened with Brody waking up after he slept in his car following one of his DJ gigs. That’s far from a sign of marital bliss. Kaitlynn has been pushing (a very disinterested) Brody to have a baby all season long while wearing three too many hair clips. Overall, these two have been uncomfortable to watch. And now they’ve announced their split, shocking pretty much no one who has watched this show.
The Hills: New Beginnings was, likely, highly anticipated by the audience that loved watching the original show a decade ago. The gamble with the reboot was whether those core consumers would tune in, especially since leading ladies Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari did not sign on.
Maybe fans are watching out of pure sentiment. Most of the cast that did return are living very different lives as parents and spouses. Even Brody Jenner has settled down. But the group still gets together and either mesh together as great friends or bicker. And that is very relatable still
