Kristin Cavallari

Is it possibly to be embarrassed on someone else’s behalf? That’s how some of Kristin Cavallari’s social media followers felt when they saw her latest Instagram caption.

Others were just downright offended by the insensitive caption Kristin posted on the anniversary of 9/11. Of course, she changed it eventually. However, people still know what the original one said and she never deleted the many comments from offended Instagram users.

Spencer Pratt Claims Mischa Barton Hides Her Drinking From Cameras On The Hills: New Beginnings

My winged eyeliner has been sharpened and ready! The Hills: New Beginnings has returned and dug up brought back some favorites from the early years of reality television. Along with familiar names like new moms Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port, Brody Jenner is showing up too. My boyfriend Justin Bobby Brescia and his flowing locks are back on my radar, thank goodness! Heidi Montag and crystal-carrying Spencer Pratt return as well. Of COURSE, they are. After years of begging and showing up to envelope openings, Speidi is being introduced to a whole new generation.

Coming along for the ride is new cast-member, Mischa Barton. She joins Brandon Lee to shake up the original crew and cause some drama. Of course, Mischa has already been through the dramatic ringer in her life. After achieving fame at a young age, she has admitted having past issues with drugs and alcohol.

Naturally, Spencer has lots to say about his desperate return to television. He also has lots to say about some of his new friends. One thing is for sure, hanging giant crystals around your neck doesn’t necessarily grant people the power to be nice.

Heidi Montag & Audrina Patridge Are Happy Lauren Conrad Isn’t On The Hills: New Beginnings

Back in the day, The Hills was Lauren Conrad’s show. This makes sense since it was her spin-off from the popular MTV show Laguna Beach. She was the narrator. It was Lauren’s world and everyone else was just living in it.

When Lauren cut ties with bestie Heidi Montag because she didn’t like Heidi’s now-husband Spencer Pratt, most of the cast followed suit. After all, they wanted to stay on The Hills, right?  Soon, the show will be back for a reboot because it’s 2019 and no one makes original content anymore called The Hills: New Beginnings. A lot of the show’s original stars will be back, but not Lauren. She’s too busy living her best life and racking in the cash with her lifestyle brand. She has zero interest in returning to the show that propelled her into reality TV stardom and it’s not as if she needs a paycheck unlike the rest of them.

Instagram Roundup: Erika Jayne, Kristin Cavallari, Shannon Beador, Briana DeJesus, & More!

Thanks to Valentine’s Day, there were a lot of reality TV stars posting on social media this week. From the couples photos, to the proud single ladies, to the mother/daughter valentines, there were a lot of sweet photos to choose from for this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.

Southern Charm alum Landon Clements shared a Valentine’s Day photo with former Bachelor lead Ben Flajnik at a winery. Was this a date? A friend date? A reach for attention? Or something else entirely? Porsha Williams shared a photo with giant bouquet of flowers with a caption about a secret admirer.

Kristin Cavallari Returning To Reality TV – Along With Husband Jay Cutler

 

After a long hiatus, Kristin Cavallari is getting back into the reality TV game. The Hills and Laguna Beach alum has a reality TV show of her own in the works.

Instead of getting caught up in fake clique drama like the reality TV shows that brought her into the limelight, this show is a lot more personal.

It's been quite some time since we parted ways with those crazy kids from The Hills.  With the exception of the two queen bees and arch rivals Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari, most of the cast from the Hills and it's predecessor Laguna Beach have faded off into obscurity, only managing a place in the spotlight thanks to DUI mug shots and quickly canceled reality shows. 

As you recall, LC had her fill of bad boys, setting her sights on Jason Wahler in high school.  After a brief fling, he disappeared, only to resurface as her main squeeze on The Hills.  The poor guy clearly has had his issues with alcohol, and their relationship was very volatile.  After Jason, Lauren found comfort in the arms of Doug Reinhardt, a former baseball player and total jackleg.  He was so skeezy I needed to shower after watching a scene with him in it.  Bless his little rich Laguna heart was he a dolt!

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.

The Hills alum Kristin Cavallari finally comes clean on what we all suspected, which is that the MTV hit show was indeed very scripted.

In a bombshell interview with Fancast, Kristin, 24, not only admits that the Hills was fake, but she also sheds some light on how the producers of the show manipulated the cast and story lines. Kristin even admits that the producers’ manipulations started during her high school Laguna Beach days. She also gives her honest opinion on Lauren Conrad’s axed reality show.

Excerpts from Kristen’s interview below –

Now that it’s over, can you reveal how much of the final season of “The Hills” was scripted?
Almost all of it. I think I can say that by now. I guess no one can get mad at me anymore.

You were not always portrayed in the most positive light on “The Hills.” You were supposedly partying too hard and using drugs. Are you concerned that damaged your reputation?
They told me they weren’t going to do any of that stuff. Basically, all that was to get ratings. I was on the cover of Us Weekly saying I need to go to rehab and that my parents wanted me to go to rehab. Both of my parents were like, “Oh, really? Why don’t they call me.” It said that I wasn’t showering. It was so unbelievable. It came and went because obviously I didn’t have a problem whatsoever. But that really pissed me off because MTV did that and there was one producer in particular who was behind all that. So that was really, really hard actually. That was one of the hardest things I ever had to go through. I’m so over it by now. But everything else, I was a willing participant. I didn’t hang out with those people. I had all my friends that were never filmed. It was work three days a week. We’d go to work, do three scenes a day, change, do another scene, and then you leave and you have your other life, your private life.

What do you think about Lauren Conrad’s new reality show being shelved for being too high brow or dull for MTV?
I didn’t know that was the reason why. I think right now MTV has “Jersey Shore” and “Skins” which are very controversial. Lauren’s a very nice girl. She’s very sweet, but that’s not always entertaining.

It seems like almost everyone who was on “Laguna Beach” had the course of their life altered. You, L.C. and Lo are reality stars. Some others have unfortunately struggled with substance abuse problems. Do you think it was, on the whole, worth it for all you to grow up in front of America?
I don’t regret anything I’ve done. It’s been hard. I was fifteen years old when “Laguna Beach” came in. I think it was really unfair how they messed with our lives like that. We were so young. We didn’t know exactly what they were doing. Watching the show really broke my heart. [When] the first episode of “Laguna Beach” [aired], I locked myself in the bathroom and was crying for hours because I was so upset about how they were portraying me. But that’s why going into “The Hills,” I knew exactly what I was getting into. I wasn’t going to let them mess with me. That’s why I went into it saying, “Whatever you guys want me to do, I’ll do. Don’t mess with me. I’ll be a participant.” They’re very shady with you. And that’s what they did when we were doing “Laguna Beach” and we were so young to be doing that. So it’s just how my life has gone. It’s the path that I’ve chosen. It’s all been worth it.

Can you give me an example of the producers being shady?
The first season of “The Hills” they had Justin and I dating on the show. Justin wouldn’t want to come film sometimes because he didn’t think that I really liked him. So the producers would have me text him, “No Justin, I really want you to come.” But I was game for it. Stephen [Coletti] was my boyfriend on “Laguna Beach.” They would be, like [to him], “We just want to get you coming up to Lauren’s house, but we’re not going to make it seem like you guys are dating.” They’d have him bring her flowers. All that stuff.

And today, Kristin is currently guest starring on ABC’s hit comedy “The Middle” (Wednesday, 8/7c) and also venturing into producing reality shows.
