Stephanie Hollman Son

There are some reality TV stars’ kids that we have literally watched grow up throughout the years. It’s crazy to think that Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers saw Teresa Giudice pregnant with Audriana Giudice during the Season 1 reunion. Now, she is a fifth grader. Do you feel old yet? I do. How about this one: Gia Giudice is a freshman in college.

Jersey Shore fans saw Snooki and JWoww go from hard-partying roomies to devoted moms. Now, their kids are in school too. And just like most other moms, reality TV stars took (and shared) photos of their kids’ first day of school.

Whitney Port Reveals She Hasn’t Spoken to Hills Co-Star Lauren Conrad in Two Years

Apparently, the rest is still unspoken between Whitney Port and her former co-star Lauren Conrad.

In August, the star of The Hills: New Beginnings was asked during a live taping of her podcast, “With Whit,” about her relationship with LC, and her answer may surprise fans of the former Teen Vogue besties.

Whitney Port Recalls Her Biggest Dating Regret

Whitney Port was always the calm and reasonable sidekick to Lauren Conrad on The Hills.  She came off as the one to give advice and remain neutral.  Despite the lack of confrontation and drama on Whitney’s part, she was also given a starring role in the brief and unmemorable, The City.  Whitney returned to the genre a decade later with The Hills: New Beginnings.

Whitney may have the face and body to be onscreen, but she does not bring the necessary drama for reality TV.   However, she did get noticed at the age of 24 years old by someone who has made the concept of dating models highly redundant.

The Hills New Beginnings Season 2

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

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.

Whitney Port has spent enough time on reality TV to be wary of it.  It can bring out the worst in people and blur lines between reality and reality TV.   And now that she has decided to return to the medium, Whitney is sharing her thoughts on coming back to it all and how she has meshed with her former costars.

Whitney was Lauren Conrad’s coworker on The Hills.  She handled herself with grace and stayed above the fray for the most part.  Whitney basically sat in a closet with Lauren for two years and functioned as a soundboard to everyone else’s drama.  Then she landed her own show, The Cityfor two seasons.

Stephanie Pratt Calls Sister-In-Law Heidi Montag “The Devil”

It must be time for the cast of The Hills: New Beginnings to start promoting their spinoff show because Stephanie Pratt is suddenly very vocal about her relationship with brother Spencer Pratt, and his wife Heidi Montag.  After all, Heidi and Spencer have been married ten years already.  What could Stephanie possibly say at this point that would make it relevant?

Spencer and Heidi met on the original show, The Hills.  Their blossoming relationship came between Heidi’s friendship with Lauren Conrad and  Spencer quickly became the villain of the cast.  He spirited Heidi away from her support system and was accused of isolating her from family and friends.  But it turns out, according to what Stephanie is saying, that these two are made for each other.

The Hills: New Beginnings Announces Premiere Date

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.
