The Hills was THE breakthrough scripted reality show that first hit our screens in 2006 and launched a thousand tabloid covers.

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the show's launch, MTV broadcast an hour long special on Tuesday night called The Hills: That Was Then, This Is Now, to fill us in on what's happened to the cast since filming wrapped after six seasons in 2010.

Whilst the reunion didn't have all the cast together (presumably it hasn't yet been long enough for all the bad feeling to subside), it did give us a few juicy tidbits for the die hard fans of the show. The special mainly focused on Lauren Conrad and her life after reality, transitioning into a fashionista and wife.

Conrad revealed that her romance with Brody Jenner was totally fake (no!). The 30 year old admitted that she just went along with the producers' pushing the storyline as she felt pressure to have an on screen boyfriend. She reveals that while she found Jenner attractive ;

"We had zero chemistry. It always just felt forced.

We knew the cameras were making it look like more than it was and there was so much pressure on me at that point to get a boyfriend or date someone who was willing to film that I just sort of let them do whatever they wanted."

Conrad, who has been happily married to William Tell since 2013 also revealed that her on screen romance with Jason Wahler was very real, and that when they broke up due to his drink and drug problems, she was heartbroken—but her parents weren't. Her mom Kathy explained;

"We were sad for her, but in the long run, we knew it was best."

Lauren still gets emotional talking about the end of her relationship with Jason, but is happy that he has overcome his demons;

"Jason's story has a happy ending. He is sober now and married and very happy."

(Judging by Jason's recent re-tweet of an anti LC story it seems that he is less zen, more Team Heidi.)

The MTV special also gave us the awesome clip of Kim Kardashian's attempt to appear on the hit show—an appearance that was eventually cut from the show.

Spencer Pratt has previously revealed that Kim, who was a "stylist" back then, was desperate to make it onto the show. He claimed that Kris "Momager" Jenner was extremely excited at the prospect of her daughter becoming a reality star and said to him;

"Spencer, I want you to manage Kim."

(Obviously Kim denies that conversation took place.....maybe Spencer has a recording.....?)

The previously unseen footage shows the now 35 year old Kim getting a tour of Heidi Montag's home. Kardashian is seen making intelligent observations on jellyfish ("really cool") and talking to step-brother Brody on their memorial day plans ("we're going to Vegas").

the hills reunion kim kardashianJust how cool are Speidi's jellyfish?!

the hills reunion kim kardashianWe're like, going to Vegas like, for the VMA's like....

Ultimately Kimmy ended up on the cutting room floor and had to enlist the help of mommy dearest to get her name (and everything else) out there by releasing the Ray J sex tape. Hey MTV's loss was E!'s gain.

Aaah don't we all love a bit of nostalgia?

However, much as we enjoyed The Hills, MTV can never, ever be forgiven for unleashing Speidi on the world.




kristin cavallari book the hills

She is one of the greatest reality show villains in the history of the genre, and now, ten years later, Kristin Cavallari is coming forward to explain why she was such a royal bitch on the hit shows Laguna Beach and it's successor, The Hills.

The producers made her do it! It was all their fault!

Guess Which Hills Star Was A Raging Meth Head!

In the 29-year-old's very candid self-improvement book, Balancing In Heels, she expertly shifts blame onto behind-the-scene fat cats who suggested her then-boyfriend Stephen Colletti cozy up to co-star Lauren Conrad while they were dating, to trigger some reality show worthy antics.

It was all their fault

Coletti, now, 30, comes out smelling like a rose in the book, out now.

“He was my entire world, and we loved hard and fought hard. One of the most hurtful things they did was pressure Stephen to spend time with another girl from the show, Lauren, while he and I were dating."

Cavallari claimed the “love triangle" was entirely machinated by producers.

“I felt threatened," she admitted, then added that producers put her in situations “where they knew I would react. I was a fighter back then: When I felt threatened, I acted."

Great TV

“It certainly provided some juicy conflicts," the mother of three conceded, but those great TV moments came with a high emotional price. “It also affected me deep."

There were many times where Kristin was convinced the producers were trying to ruin her relationship with Stephen. It forced me to “put up a wall that made it look like I didn't care about anyone but myself. But Stephen was the most important thing in my life, and there was nothing I cared about more."

Kristin admits that she came across like a “mean girl," but was never quite prepared for what she saw on screen. “I was shocked and sad that I was being portrayed as anything but myself: a sarcastic, goofy girl who just wanted to have fun."

The producers recognized that Kirstin's short temper was a gold mine for ratings, and she feels like they took full advantage. Her parents were going through divorces and she had to adjust to new step -families. That, and the fact that she became a household name practically overnight at the tender age of 17.

Kristin also dished that the producers would text the cast things to say so that it would just look like they were just on their phones, as opposed to being given a script to read.

“We didn't realize how much we were being manipulated. I was 17. They got what they wanted out of me."

Book Tour

K Cav dropped by Good Morning America on Tuesday ahead of her first stop of the tour, Book Revue in New York, to discuss the book as well as share a few life tips.

“It's how I live my life - I have sample workouts, what I eat, what I don't eat - if you can get any great tips out of there, I'll be happy."

The Hills Reunion—Kim Kardashian Cut As An Extra And Lauren Conrad's Fake Relationship

OK.. so, let's play Guess The Hills Meth Head!

Actually, don't bother guessing.... we'll just go ahead and tell you.

The teen tweaker was none other than Stephanie Pratt!

That's faces of meth right there.... boom...

In her new memoir, Made in Reality, the former reality TV star confesses to Breaking Bad way early.

"I was 14 or 15 [when I first smoked it]," she writes in her book (via the DailyMail)

"I was on the extreme level and addiction developed instantly. [I smoked] probably four times before school, then at snack... probably 12 or 13 times a day."

Dr. Drew Admits To Past Drug Use

The 29-year-old also revealed she was something of a coke head as well, the allure being that it made her feel "rebellious and grown-up."

According to Pratt, her parents didn't seem too concerned, so the party raged on.

"I didn't care about anything. I could live or die, I didn't care," she says. "I had nothing to get out of bed for, nothing was exciting."

Liza Minnelli Checks Into Rehab For Substance Abuse

Shit started getting real real after Stephanie was arrested in Hawaii for stealing $4,000 worth of designer clothes during a drug induced haze back in 2006.

"I woke up handcuffed to a hospital bed. When I landed back in L.A., Mom took me back home and I went upstairs to my old bedroom and I felt so much shame," she candidly explains in her book.

Then the stress of being surrounded by size twos on the MTV hit only intensified her addiction.

"I lost about six pounds in two weeks but bulimia made my face very puffy so I freaked out and began going on crazy little diets, like I'd only eat Tic Tacs," she admits. Her weight dipped to a dangerous 105 pounds in 2009.

Eventually, Pratt managed to get her shit together and began a regime of healthy eating and exercise… leading to her current clean living lifestyle.

As she hurtles towards 30, Pratt says she now is enjoying a sober life—in London of all places.

At least that meth addiction came in handy for something.....

The Hills Reunion—Kim Kardashian Cut As An Extra And Lauren Conrad's Fake Relationship

Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag, and Kristin Cavallari are all on the cover of the latest issue of Us Weekly. What is this, 2008? No, but seriously, the tabloid is doing a "Life after The Hills" special, and the show's three most iconic stars naturally scored the cover (sorry, Audrina!). Lauren's apparently planning her "dream wedding," Kristin's got a "baby on the way," and Heidi is "reversing plastic surgery." More specifically, Heidi is downgrading her mammoth breast implants from a size-F to a more modest D-cup.

Most of you will remember a few years ago when The Hills mania was coming to an end and Heidi got 10 major plastic surgery procedures in one day in an insane stunt to remain relevant. Once the dust settled the poor girl regretted her decision and stepped out of the spotlight to come back down to earth, but was too emotionally scarred to go back under the knife and reverse any of the surgery. That is, until now, when the "bowling balls on my chest" resulted in major health problems -- including a ruptured disc in her neck and spinal damage.

Heidi now admits that she should've "gone to a therapist" instead of remodelling her entire body, and says that she's spent her time since The Hills ended "refind[ing] who I am without the Hollywood life."

Three cheers for the return of the sweet and grounded Heidi from The Hills season 1!

Unfortunately, while Heidi dished on all things plastic surgery related, she hasn't mentioned anything about recording a follow-up to her infamous 2010 album, Superficial. It's generally seen as a joke to everyone for its meager first-week sales of 1000 copies and the fact that it cost $2 million to produce, but it's actually really good. Seriously! If you're into super overproduced dance-pop sung by autotuned blonde barbies, then Superficial is the album for you. It's basically just a collection of Britney and Kylie b-sides, which instantly makes it amazing in our book.

We'll pray for a Hills reunion and a new Heidi single.
