We are not going to take it personally if you’re asking “what is The Hills?” right now.
We acknowledge that it was probably before your time, but we at missy.ie think that it’s important that you receive a full education on why The Hills was the greatest show of all-time and why you 100% need to watch the reboot, The Hills: New Beginnings on MTV.
Here’s everything that you need to know about The Hills: New New Beginnings…
It’s a reboot of the iconic reality TV show, The Hills
Imagine Love Island crossed with Keeping Up With The Kardashians and you’ll kinda get just how super popular The Hills was back in the day.
It deputed in 2005 and followed Lauren Conrad as she moved to the Hollywood Hills in LA where she lived with her then BFF Heidi Montag and interned at Teen Vogue (the dream!). Her life was filled with glamour, but a ton of drama and also had a killer soundtrack to round it off. Because…reality!
At one point in time Lauren and the other gals from The Hills were all over every magazine, website and celebrity news show. It was a big deal across the globe.
There was SO. MUCH. DRAMA
Things were great between BFFs, Lauren and Heidi, UNTIL Heidi met her future husband, Spencer Pratt. Yes, THAT Spencer and Heidi!
When Lauren and Heidi fell out it was EPIC! Like, we’re talking Kylie and Jordyn levels of epic. And so dramatic. We just had to tune it to see what was going to happen. It gave us the immortal lines such as “You know what you did” and “I want to forgive you, and I want to forget you“.Ouch!
It gave us some seriously iconic moments…and gifs
Did we just use this article as an excuse to use gifs from The Hills? Maybe!
From the insane fall-out between LC and Heidi, to Lauren’s very complicated love-life there was so many OMG moments.
One of the most memorable moments in the show was when Lauren turned down the chance to go to Paris with Teen Vogue for the summer so she could stay in LA with her then boyfriend, Jason. The two ended up breaking up over the summer and Lauren will forever be known as “the girl who didn’t go to Paris“. Which taught us all the valuable life lesson that you should never let a man hold you back!
Thankfully a lot of moments have been eternally immortalised in gif form for our enjoyment.
Kim Kardashian made a guest appearence on it when she was a nobody
Yes, it’s hard to believe that at one point in time Kim K and the Kar-jenners were not famous. Brody Jenner (yes, half-brother of Kendal and Kylie) was one of the main stars on The Hills, so in an attempt to be famous Kim made a quick cameo on the show. And even funnier, THEY CUT THE CLIP! Yep, Kim didn’t even warrant any airtime on The Hills.
Head over to YouTube to see the clip and for a reminder of Kim’s 2007 face!
The Hills ended in 2010 and now its back!!!
Very sad times though, Lauren will not be part of The Hills: New Beginnings.
The rest of the cast, Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Stephanie Pratt, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port, Jason Wahler, Frankie Delgado and Brody Jenner are all set to return. They’ll also be joined by actress Mischa Barton, which is a bit random.
The Hills kinda existed in a “bubble” at the time where they didn’t address the growing fame of the cast- members and tried to maintain that they still had “ordinary” lives with jobs. So, it will be interesting to see if and how the shows addresses that now.
Still, we’re excited for a trip down nostalgia lane!
The first two episodes of The Hills: New Beginnings will air in the UK on Tuesday, June 25 at 8pm.
