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 five shows MTV should keep

by Annie Wu, posted Apr 6th 2007 11:21AM
MTVDespite the fact that I'm part of MTV's target demographic, I don't really watch the network. I only tune in as I'm getting dressed in the early morning and MTV's running its morning music video block. For the rest of the day, MTV seems to avoid actually playing full music videos like the plague. Instead, they fill their programming schedule with awful reality shows about spoiled pre-teens and dating shows so depressing that contestants are even willing to pee all over themselves to get out.

Now, please allow me to frolic about in my own fantasy world, in which I create my idea of MTV's perfect programming schedule. There are only five -- FIVE -- MTV shows that I would keep. That's right. Everything else should be full-on music videos. In my own MTV, there will be no Laguna Beach, no Pimp My Ride, and certainly no Yo Momma (how did they manage to pitch that?!)

MTV reality star headed to jail

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 7th 2007 7:34PM
jason wahlerJason Wahler will spend the next two months in jail. No, you can't lock him up for simply being an idiot. He actually had to do something, like punch a city employee and a tow truck driver. Last year, the 20-year old co-star of The Hills and Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County blew his top when a tow truck was blocking the road as the driver tried to move an illegally parked car. Wahler reportedly got out of his vehicle and yelled racial slurs at the city worker and tow truck driver (both of them black) and then actually punched them both before being subdued. Blood-alcohol tests show Wahler's level was .22.

On top of his two months in jail, pretty boy will also have to attend a one-day program at the Museum of Intolerance. The judge was probably pretty strict with the guy because he was recently arrested in North Carolina for underage drinking and resisting arrest.

Sounds like a great role model for the impressionable MTV crowd.

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.

The Daily Show: February 1, 2007

by Annie Wu, posted Feb 2nd 2007 5:34PM
Jon StewartSome more talk about Wolf Blitzer's recent interview with Dick Cheney, when we were once again reminded that Cheney don't like talkin' about his lesbian daughter. Hmm. His buddies are scolding people for mentioning Mary Cheney and using children as "political props". Every time I see that clip of the "What? Are you going to kill me?" presentation, I laugh for about five or six... hours. It's not good for my health.

Senior Media Critic John Oliver stopped by to elaborate. I liked the list of fourteen things that Cheney's willing to talk about (well, what we heard of it, anyway). Political Activist Chrissy Gephardt (!) also chatted with Jon about the issue. Good sport.

What's in and out for 2007

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 2nd 2007 4:03PM

Dane CookI'm not sure if I'm a fan of these "What's In and What's Out" lists that seem to pop up every December or January. They seem to embrace trends instead of just quality. But I like Hank Steuver's writing and lists like this are a good conversation starter as the new year begins.

That doesn't mean I agree with him on everything. I mean, David Sedaris is "out" while John Hodgman is "in?" That's ridiculous (though I like Hodgman too). And Dancing with the Stars will never be "in" with me. But I love that he picks America's Next Model as being "out" and Ugly Betty being "in." Ditto his picks for Laguna Beach being "out" (Meerkat Manor is "in") and Dane Cook being "out" (thumbs up to Jim Gaffigan!).

What do you think is in and out, TV-wise? I'm sure they'll be a lot of opinions on Steuver picking Battlestar Galactica as being "out" and Heroes as being "in."

A break-up, an engagement and a baby

by Anna Johns, posted Nov 14th 2006 10:08AM
ellen pompeoA few pieces of celebrity gossip involving television stars...

Ellen Pompeo, who plays Meredith Grey on Grey's Anatomy, recently got engaged! Her boyfriend, record producer Chris Ivery, proposed to her after breakfast on her 37th birthday last Friday. Now she's sporting a 3.5 carat emerald-cut diamond ring from Tacori. Pompeo said they haven't set a date and, when they do, they won't be telling anyone.

Julie Bowen, who has roles on Boston Legal and Lost, is four months pregnant with her first child. Bowen has been married to real estate investor Scott Phillips since 2004. Bowen has enlisted fashion assistance from Project Runway finalist Laura Bennett, who is also prego.

And, for you fans of the original Laguna Beach, Lauren "LC" and Brody have split up. Brody used to date LC's nemesis, Kristin Cavallari from Laguna. Brody was recently linked with Nicole Richie, but when they split, he turned to Lauren, who now stars in MTV's The Hills.

[Thanks, Yesenia!]

Laguna Beach meets the real OC

by Julia Ward, posted Nov 8th 2006 6:01PM
Laguna BeachThe New York Times is reporting that the real life Laguna Beach High PTA has its panties in a twist over the popular MTV reality series depicting the lives of seven of its students. Let's keep in mind that the seven students in question and their parents gave permission to MTV to film their lives in their private homes. MTV was going to shoot footage at the school for the show's pilot episode, but was shut down by parents then.

Some Laguna High parents are blaming the show for increasing drug use among fifth graders and for attracting sexual predators to the area. Voice of reason Captain Danell Adams of the police department called the notion of more sexual predators coming to the area because of MTV a "crock." "MySpace is much more of problem than MTV."

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:
