26 Thoughts I Had Watching The First Episode Of The Hills Again
Hello, in case you've been living under a rock, you'd be well aware that The Hills is coming back. In a big way baby.
The reboot season, aptly named The Hills: New Beginnings, will mark the return of Spencer, Heidi, Audrina, Brody, Justin Bobby, Steph, Frakie, Jason, Whitney, and welcome newcomers Mischa Barton, Brandon Lee and Kaitlynn Jenner.
But before I feel the rain on my skin and watch Spencer Pratt fondle his collection of crystals again, I thought it would be a good idea to go all the way back to the beginning. In the interest of a social experiment, BECAUSE I AM A SERIOUS JOURNALIST, I'd like to see how well the show has aged....it has been 13 years after all. It's a different time and I'm a different person. I've learned nothing except that you should never dye your own hair and stay away from that boy at your cousins party.
Do I still love Lauren Conrad's headbands? Do I still care about Heidi's very important job at Bolthouse Productions? Do I still love Brody? These are the questions. And these...are the days of our lives.
Here are 26 true and real thoughts I had rewatching The Hills Season 1 Episode 1...
1. I used to think 3/4 jeans were cute. There's just something about the way they cuts you off half-way down your leg that is so disturbing to me now.
2. The huge black bug sunglasses!!!!!!! Why did people let Lauren do that to herself???!!!! And why did I want to copy her?!!!!!! She honestly looks like a Welder from the Gold Coast.
3. Lauren's apartment is kinda sketchy. I'm not one to talk I roomshare with a group of horny cockroaches. But I just remembered her living sitchy being a bit more....swanky?
4. Did Lauren and Heidi *actually* ever like each other?
5. RIP Heidi's original face :(
6. A FLIP PHONE!!!! I WAS SO JEALOUS!!!!! aahdkkkkkkklllljjj
7. What.is.this. (yes of course I owned a pair)
8. Woah this was The Devil Wears Prada before The Devil Wore Prada.
9. Audrina's bod is bangin'. I still stand by that.
10. I completely forgot there was time before #SPEIDI existed. Heidi actually had another boyfriend. Wild.
11. "I just really don't like working" is an iconic line that should never be forgotten.
12. Do I feel uncomfortable with seeing privelleged kids likening their social lives to a full time job? Very much so! Will I keep watching? Very much so!
13. Lauren had a 3.6 GPA at fashion school? You get grades there? Christian Ciriano is shaking.
14. Heidi explaining how she wants to be the "fun party PR girl in LA" to the college submissions lady and then seeing she actually achieved that is truly inspiring.
15. Is Blaine hot? Do we think Blaine is hot now?
16. Lauren was really playing a dicey game wearing that much eyeliner and mascara.
17. WHITNEY!!!! I STILL STAN!!!!
18. I AM DYING!!!! THEY ACTUALLY MADE THEM CHANGE THEIR OUTFITS ON THE FIRST DAY AT TEEN VOGUE!!!! WILL I EVER RECOVER???!!!! So savage. I love it.
19. Lisa Love telling the girls they can't party too hard because it will refelct badly on the brand is honestly the pep talk I give to myself every day.
20. Getting excited because Gavin DeGraw is on a guest list is a huge early noughties mood.
21. I'm not ashamed to say I still enjoy the headband accessory. Sue me!!!!
22. Am I high or was there some sexual tension between Lauren and Blaine?
23. I honestly don't know why I still care, but I'm still not over the fact that Heidi tried to sneak into the Teen Vogue party. Not cool.
24. Why do I care about them crashing the party? I'm triggered!!!!!
25. This Liz Gateley end credit will forever be eteched in my mind. Wherever you are Liz Gateley, I hope you're doing well and thanks for the memories.
26. I still love this show!!!! It wasn't over, it still isn't over!!!!
Make sure you relive the magic when The Hills: New Beginnings premieres on June 25th at 12pm - only on MTV!
