Lo Bosworth on 'The Hills' Season 5 Finale and What's in Store for Season 6

by Lauren Metz, posted Dec 1st 2009 6:57PM
Boy drama ... girl fights ... and the monstrosity that is known as Speidi. Yes, people, it's time for the season finale of 'The Hills.'

We caught up with Lauren 'Lo' Bosworth -- who made her reality show start as a teen on MTV's 'Laguna Beach' and later followed BFF Lauren Conrad to 'The Hills' -- last night before her flight from L.A. to New York to give us a sneak peek at what's ahead for the show and its stars. (Um, is Justin Bobby out of the picture yet, or what?)

'The Hills' Premiere Preview: Watch Out for Kristin Cavallari

Kristin CavallariThe bitch is back!

That's how MTV's been promoting the new season of 'The Hills,' which premieres tonight. "The bitch" refers to Kristin Cavallari, formerly of 'Laguna Beach,' who is replacing Lauren Conrad as the reality series' lead character.

'Laguna' fans will remember Kristin as the vixenish foil who "stole" good girl Lauren's boyfriend, Stephen Colletti. But Cavallari begs to differ, saying she cried about her portrayal when that show premiered ...

Audrina Patridge is leaving The Hills

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 31st 2009 3:38PM
Audrina PartridgeAudrina Patridge is the latest "cast" member to leave The Hills, following on the heels of Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port. To this news I ask: Can the rest of the cast leave so they can just cancel the show? We could only be so lucky.

No, reality television's favorite couple of prats, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt remain. You know, that could explain why everybody else is running from The Hills. The producers are hoping an injection of Kristin Cavallari, formerly of Laguna Beach will help. Personally, I'd be thrilled with the addition of some of the fine folks from the MMA to kick Speidi's ass. I'd watch that week after week.

Don't worry about Patridge, though. She says she's leaving The Hills to focus on that acting career she went to LA for. Which means starring in another reality show for MTV, apparently. The Audrina Show, produced by Survivor's Mark Burnett, will hit the airwaves 2010. Can somebody tell me what Burnett is doing attached to this project?

Kristin CavallariLauren Conrad's old 'Laguna Beach' nemesis, Kristin Cavallari, is headed for 'The Hills.'

With LC departing the show after this season, Cavallari will step in to take center stage. Look for her first appearance in this season's May 31 finale. She'll be the one catching Heidi's wedding bouquet.

In other news, Courteney Cox's 'Cougar Town' and other pilots are likely to get some good news, and the CW's 'Reaper' may not be dead after all.

Reality celebrities and their unfortunate existence

by Annie Wu, posted Jul 9th 2008 6:00PM
The HillsIn the early days of reality TV as we know it, when the Real World was less of an alcoholic sex romp and more of a genuine social experiment, the "usual" way for talentless people become famous was to either be born into obscene wealth or fall down a well. Or both. Then, some time around the appearance of Survivor Season One, normal folks realized that they could capitalize on exaggerating their personalities on television. "Richard Hatch walks around naked? And he's gay? And painfully manipulative? Yes, I will sacrifice my time and attention to watch your crappy show."

The Daily Show: February 6, 2007

by Annie Wu, posted Feb 7th 2007 9:45PM
Jon Stewart"RUN DNC": Barack Obama and Jesus Christ Superstar? Fantastic. Hillary Clinton and Kelis' "Milkshake"? Kick-ass! Chris Dodd's scatting song was also hilarious. Oh, and Ted Haggard is hetero now... um, in case any of you were wondering. The cigarettes analogy made me groan a little too loudly, heh.

"The Daily Show's Laguna Beach: The Real, Real Orange County": This was a nice way to wrap up Jason Jones' two part report. It really was beautifully done, perfectly copying Laguna Beach's style. For example, the inclusion of the bonfire at the end was great. Nice job, Jones, you made me laugh for once. I had a good chuckle when he said that reality was just like the show, "without school, fat people, poverty, rain, or herpes". It's true.

laguna beachIt took a while, but MTV is finally releasing the soundtrack to Laguna Beach. It's surprising that this didn't happen sooner since music played such an important role in the reality series. The soundtrack has 14 songs and dialogue from the show sprinkled betweeen random tracks.

Laguna Beach: Summer Can't Last Forever comes out November 7th, or you can pay $9.99 to download it at URGE right now. The tracks are listed after the jump:

CBS Paramount signs deal with Laguna Beach producers

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 14th 2006 3:26PM
Laguna BeachFor all you readers out there who are poring over their pilot scripts, thinking that you're going to be the next Larry David or Aaron Sorkin, let me let you in on a little secret: put some hot and not-very-deep girls in bikinis, have them kiss a lot of guys on the beach, and you're on your way to television riches. Just ask David Hasselhoff.

Alternately, you can just ask the husband and wife team of Gary and Julie Auerbach, creators of MTV's hit "reality" series Laguna Beach. According to Variety (registration required to see the entire article), they have signed a deal with CBS Paramount Networks to develop scripted comedies and dramas for the company. Apparently the company's president and vice president are big fans of Laguna, and like the fact that the reality series is being presented with the narrative arcs usually seen in scripted shows. They want a little of the reality element brought to scripted shows, and they feel the Auerbachs are the best people to do that.

My theory as to why they got the deal? See the first paragraph. Boobs. Gossip. Sand. Beach. It doesn't take a programming genius to see the money making potential here.

UPN shelves show featuring Laguna Beach star

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 17th 2006 11:09AM
upn party shelvedSurprise! You've been bumped from the schedule. UPN has pulled Get This Party Started from its schedule for the rest of February sweeps. The reality show, hosted by ex-Laguna Beach star Kristin Cavallari and some other guy, has had dismal ratings since it premiered two weeks ago. This week's episode about a surprise graduation party scored a 0.4 rating among adults 18-24. Ouch.

The premise of the show is that Kristin and her television-friendly co-host help friends and/or family plan and execute a surprise party for a very deserving person. It must be as boring as it sounds.

Laguna kids pimping Bongo

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 11th 2006 9:29AM
Pretty soon, you'll be seeing the kids from MTV's Laguna Beach: The Real O.C. all over the place. Six of them (Alex Murrel, Jason Wahler, Lauren Conrad, Stephan Colletti, Kristin Cavallari and Tallan Torriero) are part of a new advertising campaign by BONGO clothing that launches in fashion, entertainment and lifestyle magazines this Spring. The concept behind the campaign is a party. BONGO rented out a ritzy mansion in Orange County and let the kids do their thing as the band, The Colour, played on set. Alex Murrel, who has an album coming out this spring (who doesn't?), joined the band while the boys pushed each other into the pool, proving that they are barely out of high school. The Laguna clan replaces an ad campaign last year by BONGO that featured Nicole Richie and her ex-fiance, DJ AM.
