Last week’s speculation that production issues would delay the premiere of The Hills: New Beginnings was, thankfully, proven unfounded.
MTV just released a trailer for the reboot. In it, fans can see a montage of scenes from the original show. If the visual memories aren’t enough, you get to hear the same Natasha Bedingfield theme song. It’s clear this whole project is marketed as a nostalgia trip for The Hills lovers, but they could have picked a new song.
The Hills: New Beginnings is in need of some reshoots and the cast is not happy about it. Network insiders have said that the stars would have to commit an additional three months of their time to complete the process, and though the cast is made up of reality TV alums, the group was not anticipating the additional commitment.
It feels like the fans have been asking for a reboot of The Hills forever and now it is FINALLY happening. There’s no word on who will return for the show or what it is even going to be about at this point, but I will watch every single episode whether I like it or not.
Are they going to re-open Les Deux Nightclub and turn it into a daycare facility for their adorable children? Do all of the cast members even live near each other? There are so many logistical questions, but I don’t even truly care about whether or not this show actually makes sense, but I am so here for it.
In the beginning there was a housewives franchise for any given night of the week, and then, there was Watch What Happens Live. I must admit I was beside myself when Andy Cohen decided to make his fete a nightly deal. I guess I overestimated the amount of guests who would entertain me in the clubhouse. I don't care about has-beens or random current reality stars that know nothing of all things Bravo. I want dish and dirt and a worthy jackhole.
Ask and ye shall receive. My Monday night WWHL was everything I like to see happening in the clubhouse. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Taylor Armstrong was present to clear up any rumors that she needed and intervention, and, I'll be honest, as much as I dislike her on the show, she was pretty funny and self-depreciating with ol' Andy. Joining her was The Hills'Kristin Cavalarri who looked fabulous after just having a baby boy. MTV's resident bitch was likeable and (dare I say it?) hilarious during her debut night in the clubhouse.
If you recall, following Audrina Patridge’s elimination on Dancing With The Stars, mom Lynn came out of LA restaurant to talk to Paparazzi, during which she referred to Lauren as a “tramp” and a “bitch,” stating that Audrina’s upcoming reality show would fare better than Lauren’s. Lynn has since apologized for those comments.
UsWeekly caught up with Lauren this week during which they asked whether she thought of Audrina’s new show as competition. “I think it’s good for her. And no, I really don’t think about it like that at all,” responded Lauren.
And when it comes to Mama Patridge’s comments, Lauren attempts to take the high road, simply stating: “I really don’t have a comment on that right now, thanks.”
While Audrina has also yet to publicly discuss her mom’s comments, In Touch Weekly alleges that her mom’s comments might actually be an echo of the way Audrina really feels about Lauren.
According to the article, which claims the former two BFFs have been torn apart by fame, Audrina is reportedly sick of playing second fiddle to Lauren. “Lauren always talks about her books, her style and her life. It always has to be about her,” reveals an insider.
The mag also claims that Audrina never fully recovered from the rumors that Lauren once hooked up with her ex Justin Bobby and “has had bad feelings about Lauren ever since.”
Meanwhile, a source tells the mag Lauren was “pretty shocked” about Audrina’s mom’s rant. “Her mom spilled the beans about how she really feels,” says a friend of Lauren’s. “Now Lauren doesn’t think they were ever really even true friends.” Audrina has admitted in a previous interview that she hasn’t spoken to Lauren since the Hills finale.
TELL US – WHO’S REALITY SHOW ARE YOU MORE EXCITED ABOUT? LAUREN OR AUDRINA’S?
According to People, Kristin is now dating Tal Cooperman, who just happens to be another ex of fellow castmate, Audrina Patridge. Tal and Audrina dated last summer.
“It’s brand new. They’re having a lot of fun enjoying getting to know each other better,” says a source of Cavallari’s relationship with Tal. “It’s not for the show. They hit it off and have been hanging out off-camera.”
Kristin and Tal allegedly enjoyed a date night Thursday in Los Angeles, during which they were spotted sharing a sushi dinner at Nobu and kissing at West Hollywood hotspot Voyeur. “They were making out on one of the club’s VIP stages after midnight,” says a clubgoer. “They were all over each other.”
It’s probably best for the human race that these folks keep their stds germs amongst their circle, as they all seem to date the same people. I haven’t been watching the Hills that much this season, but I have become a fan of The City, which seems slightly less fake than the Hills. That Olivia is quite the character, and definitely makes the show interesting.
TELL US: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE NEW SEASON OF THE HILLS AND THE CITY?
Kristin managed to rub practically everyone the wrong way. The biggest conflict came when Kristin faced off against Audrina Patridge, who accused her of going after her on-and-off fling Justin Bobby.
In a new interview with USWeekly, Kristin dishes on Audrina and what she thought of the sixth season’s premiere episode. “I think that Audrina and Stephanie [Pratt] were very judgmental and just wrote me off right away without getting to know me,” Cavallari, 22, said on Tuesday at an event in West Hollywood.
Kristin however played coy on her reasons for going after Audrina’s ex, Justin Bobby, saying — “You’ll have to see it on the show” — revealing “the love triangle” gets “pretty dramatic” as the season progresses.
Something tells us Kristin went after Justin Bobby because the Hills’ script called for it. Kristin also manages to get a swipe in against Audrina when asked about what she thought of Audrina’s appearance, “I’m not commenting on her plastic surgery,” laughed Kristin.
It seemsKristin Cavallarihas good reason for joining the cast The Hills. 90,000 ones to be exact as a new report reveals she earns a whooping $90,000 per episode!
Kristin’s $90,000 per episode is however $10,000 less than what her co-stars Audrina Patridge, 24, and Lauren “Lo” Bosworth, 22, earn, as each rakes in $100,000.
As for the rest of the cast, Heidi Montag, 23, nets $100,000 an episode, while her douchebag husband, Spencer Pratt, 26, gets $65,000 an episode. They are both however able to make up to $30,000 for personal appearances. The article also states Heidi earned $375,000 for her recent Playboy September cover shoot, despite the fact that she didn’t take it all off.
Lauren Conrad, who is no longer on the show reportedly earned a whopping $125,000 per episode during her heyday. Her deal stipulated that no other star’s salary could match hers. Brody Jenner earns the least at $45,000 a show.
The same report states the stars of Bravo’s Real Housewives series receive a reported $30,000 a show, though some other reports claim it’s $100,000 per season. The new season of the Hills premiers Tuesday, September 29th.
