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
Are you watching The Hills: New Beginnings? I can’t seem to help myself. Seeing
completely changed familiar faces is oddly comforting in a way. Back in the old days, Brody Jenner and Spencer Pratt were buds. They did the LA club scene and while Spencer began his slow descent into madness, the CDC developed its own file on Brody. Spencer eventually settled down with Heidi Montag and Brody began dating his first ex-wife Kaitlynn Carter.
It is safe to say that Spencer does not enjoy the company of many people. That includes Mrs. Brody Jenner. Spencer feels Kaitlynn takes advantage of Brody and uses his famous name to her benefit. He also thinks Kaitlynn is the main reason Brody had a falling-out with his step-sister, Kim Kardashian. Now that The Hills is back, you can guarantee Spencer will be giving his opinion on literally everything. Including his thoughts on Brody’s wife.
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.
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 City, for two seasons.
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.
The comeback of the hit reality show The Hills features most of its original cast with some new faces as well. Brody Jenner, Stephanie Pratt, Audrina Patridge, Frankie Delgado, and Justin Bobby Brescia will be accompanied by villainous couple Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag.
Heidi Montag may have faded into obscurity for a while. But last week she made big news even more tremendous by answering a question about diversity in the most tone-deaf and detached manner possible.
I have always supported The Hills reboot, but I can’t help feeling confusion every time there’s additional casting news. How is this a “reality show” when there are just (seemingly) random people thrown in on top of some original cast members who are in touch for the first time in years?
Of course, Brody Jenner, Spencer Pratt, Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port, and other cast members from the show’s original run are on board, but some of the additions just seem so random. Mischa Barton will be on the show. There were rumblings that Kyle Massey is set to join the cast. Now the son of some pretty famous exes will be on The Hills as well.
