Kristin Cavallari Opens Up About ‘Laguna Beach’ To Elle Magazine

When asked why she continues to negotiate with an industry as fickle as Hollywood, Cavallari reminds me that she’s been working since she was 14 years old. “I was a hostess when MTV came,” she says, bundled up in a cashmere throw on an oversize couch in a living room littered with toys and the clutter of two little boys. “We filmed Thursday to Sunday, which is typically when I would host, so I had to quit my job essentially to do the show—and we got paid. So, yeah, I looked at it as a job.” It’s a pretty cynical outlook for a teenager who, along with about a dozen of her surf-loving, beach-highlighted schoolmates, was cast in the MTV series that would all but define aspirational youth for a generation. But, according to Cavallari, the premise of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County was never properly explained to its subjects. “No one knew what that show was going to become, obviously,” she says. “I had envisioned it being, like, do you remember True Life on MTV? I thought it was going to be like that. None of us knew that it was going to be turned into a soap opera. And, so, filming the first season, we were sort of just going along with it, listening to producers, doing what they asked, not realizing—me especially—that we were going to be edited the way we were.” The age-old plot that catapulted its two female leads, Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad, into enduring fame was also news to the ensemble’s feisty underdog. “I also didn’t realize the love triangle was going on,” she says while Cutler and Camden roughhouse with a toy dustbuster on the carpet beneath her feet. “Steven [Colletti] was my real boyfriend, so that was really difficult for me to watch. Even though a lot of it was manipulated and for the show, it’s still hard to see your boyfriend going and hanging out with a girl that he probably normally wouldn’t. It was tough for me.” Of the media’s lasting fascination with their feud: “You were either the Lauren or you were the Kristin.” (http://www.elle.com/culture/celebrities/a28695/at-home-with-kristin-cavallari/)

Kristin Cavallari has always been such an interesting person to me for a few different reasons. Well first off, she is still relevant. I don’t know what the fuck she does now other than interviews but she is relevant. Homegirl is out there hustling still and good for her. I want her to write a complete tell all about Laguna Beach since she bashes it every chance that she gets, but hey, apparently she doesn’t need to do that when she has platforms like Elle magazine.

Listen, everyone is aware that the show you were on as a teenager was moderately scripted and edited to look a certain way. She always says how she wasn’t that big of a bitch and so on. She played the part well which was nice though. I am also continued that she said she was only 14 when the show started? So at the moment she is 28, the show started in 2004, so she was most likely 16 when she was cast for the show. I don’t know if she is trying to mess with our heads, but you aren’t 24 Kristin.

I genuinely don’t know why she needs to bash the show that made her famous though. I know a lot of people do it but Kristin you are a reality television star who got lucky by marrying a pro athlete. People don’t know you as a fashion designer or a blogger, they know as the bad bitch from Laguna Beach.

What It Means To Be Team LC or Team Kristin Ten Years Later

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!

Brody Jenner Claims He And Lauren Conrad Never Actually Dated!

https://i0.wp.com/images5.fanpop.com/image/photos/25800000/Lauren-Brody-the-hills-25841651-400-567.jpg

Over this past weekend Brody Jenner, the guy who is known for being a reality show man whore opened up on a podcast that he never dated Lauren Conrad. They simply worked together and on the show they had to act like they were dating. Now last summer during an interview with Allure magazine Conrad said that they dated for a short amount of time but had to drag it out for the show. Now, I am confused and slightly heartbroken.

If you were an avid “The Hills” fan you knew that Brody was the one who helped Lauren get over her high school sweetheart Jason Wahler. Every week you would tune in to see if Lauren and Brody would actually kiss or continue to flirt around. At least I would do that because I “shipped” them so hard it wasn’t even funny.

I do have a question for Mr. Brody Jenner. Why does he feel the need to bring this up now a solid five years later? Oh, I know why. Lauren Conrad is a swan swimming in a big old pond and Brody is still stuck on a little pond being a small role in “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”. Lauren is off getting married and Brody is still dating Playboy models and not being able to settle down.

Let’s be real though, he just wanted a little bit of publicity and that is why he brought up “The Hills” and Lauren’s name. There would be no other reason to do so when they obviously dated. Even if they didn’t have a serious relationship they still had a little thing. Lauren even based one of her characters in her LA Candy series on Brody!

So you keep going around talking about Lauren and how you didn’t date while she is off being very successful and happy in her life.

What do you guys think? They totally dated right? Even if it was for just a little blip in time.
