Kristin Cavallari revealed that she faked fights and relationships on Laguna Beach and its spinoff series, The Hills.
On the December 20 episode of Bethenny, Cavallari admitted that many scenes in the MTV reality series were semi-scripted.
“I faked relationships, faked fights. I don’t care anymore—I can tell you. At this point, it’s been so many years,” she said.
One example of a fabricated storyline was Cavallari’s relationship with Brody Jenner.
“Brody Jenner at the time was dating Jayde Nicole. I dated Brody when I was 18, right after Laguna Beach, actually, and that’s it,” she said. “And then on the show, on The Hills, they had us ‘dating’ for a few episodes. They pretended that him and Jayde broke up and I was dating Brody, and Jayde and I got into a huge fight because she saw us in a club. It wasn’t real at all. They were together the entire time.”
Kristin Cavallari also admitted that both shows were “very much like soap operas,” although they took different approaches to their storylines.
“Laguna Beach, they really just manipulated situations and put us in situations that we normally wouldn’t have been in, or we’d have to film something that maybe happened a month ago or hasn’t happened yet—stuff like that,” the 26-year-old said. “When I decided to join The Hills, I knew exactly what I was getting into, I knew exactly the character they wanted me to be, so I said, ‘Listen, I’m game. What do you want me to do?’”
In October, Cavallari revealed that she and husband Jay Cutler are expecting their second child together. They are already parents to son Camden Jack, who was born August 8, 2012. Cavallari said at the time that she was hoping for a baby girl, but that she would be happy either way. She told Bethenny Frankel that they will find out the gender of their new baby on Christmas day.
“I’m going to have my doctor write it on a piece of paper and we’re going to open it on Christmas together,” she said.
This isn’t the first time Kristin Cavallari has revealed some of the secrets behind Laguna Beach and The Hills. In March, she claimed that her co-stars were bribed to make up stories about her using drugs.
“I felt so used,” she confessed. “And I realized at that moment that I didn’t matter. None of us mattered. It was all about ratings.”
