If you were a young adult, no I hate that saying, if you were a teenager in the early 2000’s there was one rivalry that you couldn’t get away from, Kristin Cavallari vs Lauren Conrad. For those of you that didn’t indulge in reality television at the tender age of 12 they were on the MTV hit reality show Laguna Beach. Then they were both on the hit reality show The Hills and since then neither of them have been on a hit reality show. Lauren Conrad has moved on to fashion and writing her own successful book series, while Kristin Cavallari now has two kids with football player Jay Cutler and remains in the spotlight for a number of different things.
Back to the rivalry though! Everyone knows Lauren Conrad as the sweet girl next door who had a big old crush on Stephen Colletti but never really had her shot, until she kissed him while he was dating Kristin Cavallari. Yet some how Kristin stole him from Lauren, I don’t really remember, it has been a few years since I have watched the first season. ANYWAY it was clear down the line, some girls loved Kristin and some girls loved LC.
If you were a team Lauren fan there was a good chance that you had your heart broken by a Stephen type of character growing up. You were probably really good friends with them but that was all that you would ever be, a friend. They always looked at other girls and you sat around waiting for your chance. Team Kristin was the opposite, these types of girls go after what they want and don’t really care who they hurt in the process, as long as they get who or what they want.
There are both good and bad in both of these teams. Team Lauren seemed boring simply because even though Lauren Conrad went on to be one of the biggest reality stars of all time, she was kind of boring. She would sit in the corner and pout about how Stephen didn’t love her. Team Kristin was just a wild card in general, she could be dancing on a bar or she could be trying to sneakily steal your boyfriend. Always a tough battle.
Ten years later though I think it goes to show that everyone who was on Team LC chose the right team. Lauren Conrad is still talked about constantly even when she is being called basic by Seventeen Magazine whereas Kristin Cavallari is just praying to be talked about at all. Maybe in high school Kristin was the it girl but the moment she graduated she chased after Lauren’s coattails all the way to The Hills.
Team LC for life! Everyone has a little bit of Team Kristin in them though.
Tell me if you were Team LC or Team Kristin here!
