It may be time to get reacquainted with one MTV’s guiltiest pleasures. Quick! Someone fetch Natasha Bedingfield out of storage!
Pseudo-reality series The Hills will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of its premiere tonight in the form of an MTV special, but Entertainment Weekly says the shindig might not be the last you see of The Hills in a semi-near future.
According to an EW source, the Laguna Beach spinoff could be primed for its own motion picture. Kristin Cavallari, Whitney Port, and Audrina Patridge are all reportedly a go for the project, but one holdout could turf these plans. Lauren Conrad (who exited the show partway through season 5) is said to be the key cast member that hasn’t agreed to come aboard and without her the production won’t move forward.
The movie would reportedly use Partridge’s upcoming Aussie-based nuptials with Corey Bohan as a jumping off point with a look in at how everyone’s lives have changed as they’ve aged. Ideally, there would be an extended period of time where Spencer Pratt, Holly Montag, and Heidi Montag chat about I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! and if they keep in touch with Patti Blagojevich.
Returning to the subject of the potential lack of Lauren, there might be a bit of optimism about the bestselling author (did you forget?) joining the potential project. After all, Conrad will be front and center for tonight’s The Hills: That Was Then, This Is Now special. The designer also watched the pilot episode for the first time in 10 years and shared her thoughts.
Looking back, I am grateful for the incredible opportunity we were given to take part in this show. While it was hard at times to share my personal life (poor makeup choices and all) with the world; the experience taught me so much and forever altered my life and my outlook for the better.
I am so proud of the show. Without all the amazing people we were lucky enough to have working behind-the-scenes (especially the show’s talented creator and Executive Producer, Adam Divello), it would have been just another easily-forgotten reality show. Instead, they made a show that documented—and at times created—my reality during those years in a unique and beautiful way.
Let’s all look at this Instagram snap from Lauren Conrad and wonder what a The Hills movie would be like.
