The last shot anyone ever saw from “The Hills” was a camera slowly panning out over a studio set in the Hollywood hills. The metaphor was there for everyone in plain view: this entire thing was scripted and we’ve just had the wool pulled over our eyes for the last six seasons. “The Hills: That Was Then, This Is Now” will premier on Tuesday, August 2nd to plenty of fanfare from people who grew up watching “Laguna Beach” and “The Hills.” When the last episode ended in 2010, I was totally taken aback. I had been through it all in six seasons with the crew from L.A., and I really wanted to believe that the drama was real.
LC sitting on her couch, trying to tell Heidi how she’s feeling while practically pulling her hair out “He’s a sucky person!” I mean that was an iconic moment in mid-2000s cable television. Justin Bobby, the resident bad boy, stealing Audrina away from the clutches of Lauren, and then finally the death blow: LC finally being so fed up that she just straight up left the show. I know a lot of you will be way too ashamed to admit that you were a fan of “The Hills”, but I am so stoked for this reunion episode.
We would say like, ‘If you knew the real story, you would understand.’ And what I’d like to do is tell that story… We’re going to take a look back at the show and reveal things that we haven’t talked about before.
Spencer, Justin Bobby, Brody Jenner, Jen Bunny, Whitney, Kristin. Give me all of the fringe characters back, baby! I need explanations. Was this show really scripted like MTV led us to believe or was there a little bit of truth to the drama festival that was every single episode of this show? The list of dramatic, hard-hitting scenes in “The Hills” was in my humble opinion, was the greatest thing MTV ever did. Now cue the Natasha Bedingfield, I’m ready for some Speidi..
