The Hills Revisited: Major Makeovers
Okay girls, The Hills premiere is almost here! (September 29 at 10 pm, to be exact). I’m totally freaking out! I can barely contain my excitement. Yes, I know it is extremely embarrassing that I’m counting down the hours, but who’s with me?
Tomorrow night we can finally resume our weekly ritual of guilty pleasures. For me it’ll be nachos, a glass of cheap wine and a drama packed half hour of catty girl fights in gorgeous outfits.
All the hype of Kristen replacing LC had me reminiscing of high school nights when I would crowd around the TV with my girlfriends to watch the Stephen-Colletti-tug-of-war on Laguna Beach. So, I sat down this weekend for a little revisit to the beginnings of this cash cow of a reality show that’s spitting out celebrities at an Octomom rate.
I’m not going to lie, taking this little trip down memory lane had me a bit melancholy, as I revisited the cast when they still used to consume solid food, had hair that didn’t scream bleach bottle, and sported an authentic California tan instead of layers of cakey makeup.
I’m a sucker for the drama of the new Hills season, but I’ll always miss the natural innocence of the girls that charmed us in the beginning.
When Heidi and LC first moved in together, I loved this girl. She was fun, she was real, and she was a good friend to our leading lady.
Now (a pair of boobs, a nose job, and a marriage to the biggest douche bag on the planet later) she’s the walking poster child for fake. Just another playboy wannabe, starving herself through Hollywood.
Oh Audrina. I’ve never been able to get past that monotone, I-have-no-idea-what’s-going-on-ever thing you have going. But at least in the beginning you had that girl next door quality (no, really, Heidi recruited her as a friend at the condo’s pool.) Now her clueless look is accentuated with plunging necklines and a painful acting career.
At first, she had a chill, down to earth style; very laid back California girl. Now it looks like someone attacked her with an eye pencil, teeth whitener and an entire can of hairspray. I’ll cut her a little slack only because her blood relation to Spencer has got to be stressful, and she obviously can’t be sporting those bags and wrinkles on national TV.
Whether you think she’s a bitch or admire her for her honesty, there’s no doubt that Kristen’s I-Don’t’Give-A-F!@% attitude is what had all the boys chasing her around Laguna. She was hot without trying, the perfect example of the confident, relaxed Cali chick. No doubt that confidence is still there, but now it’s stuffed into a skintight micro-mini and doused with bronzer. Not the fun, laid back look we used to admire.
What do you guys think? Do you like the new bombshell Hollywood makeovers or miss their early days of t-shirts and jean shorts?
