The Hills came to a close last night, and I supposed it was a good way to wrap things up. Boy, those cats really got us in the end! I was perplexed by Lo‘s boyfriend’s fauxprosal, Audrina‘s urge to move away from Hollywood, and Stephanie‘s stage-five clinginess with her new boyfriend (Seriously, let go of the poor bastard).
After the episode ended, I sat on my parents’ couch for a good 30 seconds before my friend, Colleen, filled me in on the meaning of it all:
“They basically said at the end ‘we’ve been f**king with you for the last 4 years.’”
So the entire time America has been complaining about how unrealistic and scripted The Hills is, the producers devised this ending? So sneaky! I was wondering how Kristin would pull off a European time-out when she loves the cameras far too much to disappear. And Audrina move out of Hollywood? How the sod would she manage to stay relevant if she did such a thing?
Colleen, an avid Laguna and Hills watcher (and my go-to when reality shows get the best of me) was ready to discuss the end of an era (I can’t type that with a straight face).
“My husband did say, ‘If they put Kristen Cavallari on The City even I would watch it.’”
