The Bitch Really is Back
The first episode of The Hills premiered tonight and was exactly what we were all expecting. There was tons of unnecessary drama, over-acting, and of course...a faux cat-fight. All of this chaos ensued from the arrival of the shows' new star, Kristin Cavallari.
I know I will get flak for this, but I'm glad Kristin's back. Every since the Laguna Beach days, Kristin has always been more fun to watch than Lauren.
Lauren has never appealed to me. She's one of those girls who plays dumb around guys, has zero personality, and a minimal vocabulary. Who really wants to watch that? Not me.
Kristin, on the other hand, has drama surrounding her everywhere she goes, and of course that's the entertaining part. She's stealing boyfriends, getting in people's faces, and starting heated arguments in public places. It's great.
And for $90,000, which is what Kristin is reportedly making per episode, she can do whatever the hell she wants, the producers even encourage it!
In just this one episode she managed to fight with half the cast and make her presence known by flirting with Audrina's ex-boyfriend...on Audrina's birthday. Which is all exactly what MTV wants her to do.
Now, I seriously hope that people aren't taking any of this show seriously, because it is so obviously scripted it's painful. Kristin even came out and admitted in an article for the LA Times that "It's just so...fake. There's no truth to it. At all."
The whole purpose of the show at this point is basically to fuel Joel McHale's act on The Soup. But still, young girls will tune in by the dozen (myself included) just to get a good laugh. So tune in next Tuesday at 10pm for more staged meetings and scripted conversations!
