Everyone on "The Hills" seems to agree that Kristin Cavallari is stirring up a lot of trouble for the new season of the show, which kicks off on Tuesday (September 29) at 10 p.m. ET. Brody Jenner, Cavallari's former flame, admits that there are no hard feelings between him and the "Laguna Beach" veteran.
In fact, he's actually kind of excited to have her hanging with him on the show. " 'The Hills' this season is completely different," he told MTV News. "It has a new feel, and I think it's fresh. Kristin adds such a different element. ... I think for a while 'The Hills' was just kind of focusing on ... I don't know, I'm going to give my personal opinion, but I think it was getting kind of soft there for a minute."
If it was getting soft, then Kristin will definitely make sure she makes life hard for everyone on the show. "It was just the same thing over and over and Justin and Audrina and yada, yada, yada, so I love to see Kristin's attitude coming into it," Jenner said. "She adds a whole new thing, and she's causing all types of drama that probably never would have happened if she wasn't involved."
Jenner, however, knows that Lauren Conrad will be missed by the fans, and he even admitted to missing her himself. But he also thinks that if fans give Kristin a chance, they'll enjoy what she brings to the table. "Keep an open mind and watch," he advised. "Get your popcorn out, get whatever you do, but it's a crazy show this year."

Remember when Stacie The Bartender was the most hated woman on The Hills? Eh, bygones. We sat down with the surprisingly modest brunette during a recent photo shoot for MTV.com, and she only had positive things to say about her current relationship with Spencer and Heidi Pratt. However, her first impressions of the couple were a whole different story.

Jules: Hi Lo and welcome to The Stiletto Jungle! Are you addicted to chocolate or does FLING Chocolate just love you?
Lo: Thanks for having me! FLING is the official chocolate sponsor of the recent Emmys and in honor of that they created the “Best Fling” award and decided to honor me, which is really cool…It’s more about a lifestyle not just a fling with guys - it’s about having a fling with a restaurant or a new pair of shoes. It fits perfectly into my lifestyle and it’s only 85 calories! I have a guilt-free FLING a day!
Jules: Our readers love a good fling, especially when it comes to fashion and girls’ nights out. Speaking of, on The Hills you’re seen having fun nights out with your girlfriends…what’s your favorite “naughty but not that naughty” girls’ nights out location in LA?
Lo: I am loving the Tropicana Bar at The Roosevelt right now. I like to have fun, but I don’t need to have over the top kind of nights all the time – and I think that’s why the relationship I have with FLING is a good representation - I like to have naughty but not that naughty nights out. I’m just a normal girl who likes to have a little bit of fun every once in a while.
Jules: Any new changes for the show this season on The Hills?
Lo: Well I do have a boyfriend, he’s my… long-term fling, but he’s not going to be on the show. But you will learn more about me - people are going to see me being the moderator between characters.
Jules: Well enough with the party chatter, what about your fashion and beauty picks before we close?
Lo: Well, I love Phillip Lim and anything from Topshop, as it’s so affordable and easy. For this Fall I am loving my Theory leather jacket and oversized sweaters. To top off my look, I like a more natural beauty look – just highlight your best features!

Stephanie Pratt let Usmagazine.com take a peek inside her purse!
The Hills star, 23, told Us all about the five must-have essentials inside her Miu Miu studded leather handbag, which included her stuffed Balenciaga wallet and her Twitter-friendly Blackberry.
What else can't she leave home without?
"Sunglasses," she says, holding up her $60 pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs shades. "I'm from L.A.!"
The star also packs dozens of lip glosses and mini perfume bottles by Jacobs and Stella McCartney because "you never know what boy you're going to meet" and you "have to smell good."
Pratt doesn't just love her carry-alls. She personally designed three of the purses she wears on the upcoming season of The Hills. To check them out, tune into the hit MTV reality series, which premieres on Tuesday.

For the last four years, Kristin Cavallari has been a struggling actress living in Los Angeles. She hosted a show on the now-defunct UPN about party planning that was canceled after two episodes. Earlier this year, she played alongside Rob Schneider in a high school comedy that went straight to DVD.
Now, Cavallari has landed a role where she knows all eyes will be on her. She'll take over for Lauren Conrad as the star of MTV's most watched series, "The Hills," which continues to follow impossibly beautiful, thin and rich twentysomethings as they galavant about L.A. The fifth season premieres Tuesday at 10 p.m.
Despite billing itself as a reality show, "The Hills" has only become less realistic over its first four seasons, and its increasingly weary star, Conrad, allowed the drama of her friends to take center stage.
But Cavallari says she is ready and willing to step into the role the show's producers have crafted for her.
"I pretty much do anything they have me do because I don't care," she said. "I mean, we're filming a TV show. Let's make it interesting. Let's have a good time with it."
There's a lot riding on her shoulders. Last season's ratings signal what could be flagging interest in the show itself. But "The Hills" will almost certainly benefit from Cavallari's familiarity with viewers who came to know her as the star of "Laguna Beach," a reality show that documented life at her high school in an affluent, seaside California town. She knew Conrad back then; on "Laguna" they fought for the affections of Cavallari's then-boyfriend, Stephen Colletti.
Being a part of that reality show in 2004 was a more pure experience than is "The Hills," Cavallari said. She sobbed for hours after the debut of "Laguna Beach." She hated the way the producers made her seem like the villain when it was really Conrad who was trying to steal her boyfriend. Friendships were ruined. She and Colletti eventually split.
"I almost felt like it was unfair for [MTV] to come into our lives at such a young age and sort of mess with things," she said. "I don't regret it, but I was 17 -- of course I wanted to be on TV. I felt like they should have been a little bit more careful with us."
She's grown a thick skin since. In the commercials MTV has been airing for "The Hills," the pint-sized blond stands in front of a row of glittering, oversized letters that read "The Bitch is Back." Towering in high stilettos, tossing back her hair and pouting in bright red lipstick.
But that's not who she really is, Cavallari says. The producers write to her with the storylines they have in mind. She shows up to the pre-selected locations for the episodes, which are shot Wednesday through Friday each week. And then she improvises, often going for the jugular on hot-button issues she knows will stir up controversy.
"They tell us what to talk about," she said, shrugging. "Listen, I have fun with it. They film 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' the same way."
She treats "The Hills" like work, she said.
"What else would I see it as? Hanging out with my friends? That's not it. It's a job. It's pretty easy," she said in an interview last week at a Hollywood restaurant. Cavallari giggled self-consciously throughout. Asked why she was laughing, she replied: "Because I don't think I'm supposed to be saying this."
"The thing is, if this was a reality show about my life, they would follow me going to auditions and studying with acting coaches, but they didn't want to show that because it's not glamorous," she said. "They make it seem like we have perfect lives and like we have all this money."
Not that anyone still buys "The Hills" as real, a point she understands. "Maybe people in Kansas. In Middle America they think it's real. Living in L.A., it's hard to tell what people really do believe."
The show's creator, Adam DiVello, thinks viewers are interested in watching the show to see a story unfold and aren't as "concerned about exactly what's happening in these kids' lives and how accurate it is."
"This is a sliver of Kristin's life and it's not every person she knows in her life. She has an idea of where we're going with the show," he said. "I think she's walking through and knows this is all going to be a drama."
For whatever reason, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, the show's press-obsessed newlyweds, still insist "The Hills" is real.
"The Hills could not be more real, that's what I keep laughing at," Pratt said. "It's a dream role for these girls to get so out of hand and so out of line on TV and then when the tabloids ask them what's going on they say, 'I'm just filling out the story line.' That's an easy way out."
But Cavallari insists the opposite. The question is, will casting agents bite? To hear her tell it, she's put on quite a show: "Everyone is trying to get story lines and create drama in their lives. It's just so...fake. There's no truth to it. At all."

Brody Jenner unfortunately couldn't attend stepsister Khloe Kardashian's wedding to L.A. Laker Lamar Odom on Sunday in Beverly Hills. Instead, he had to be on a plane to New York, where he's promoting the season premiere of "The Hills" on Tuesday, so he's blaming us for missing the family event.
"It's pretty crazy," he told MTV News. "I missed it. I had to be here. You guys are the reason why I missed it."
Jenner is happy to welcome Odom into the family — especially if it means he'll probably be sitting courtside more often. "I'm getting some good seats this year at the Lakers games, yes!" joked Jenner. "No, I've met Lamar a couple of times, and he seems like a pretty incredible guy. So, it came fast, to say the least, but I'm happy for them. She seems very happy, so good for them."
With Khloe married and Kourtney expecting her first baby, does Brody ever think his own well-televised love life would be exciting enough for a cameo on his stepsisters' E! show, "Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami"?
"I don't know, it's hard to keep up with them," Jenner said. "I'd have to get married right off the bat with somebody to keep up with them. And I don't think I'm quite ready for something like that. You never know, but at this point, no."
Brody Jenner and Lauren Conrad had an on-again, off-again romance that eventually blossomed into quite a beautiful bromance on "The Hills." But these days, with LC leaving the show and moving on, she also seems to be too busy to keep in touch with her old friend.
"I'm gonna be really honest — I have not talked to Lauren at all since she's stopped filming the show," Jenner told MTV News. "Lauren, she's doing all right. I know she's got her boyfriend that she's spending a lot of time with and her books and her clothing and other things, so I really have not even spoken to her at all."
Regardless of their distance, Jenner is pretty sure that even though LC is no longer on the show and says she won't be watching the new episodes, she harbors no animosity toward the show's newest star and her onetime frienemy, Kristin Cavallari. "I'm sure she's happy for everyone on 'The Hills,' and she's not one to get angry that Kristin's on," Jenner explained.
These days, while many of her friends are still documenting their lives on the show, she's off just "having a good time" without a camera crew serving as her shadow. "I think she was at that point in her life where she had been on reality television since she was, like, 17 years old, so it was time for her to take a break," Jenner said. "And that's what she's doing. She's off traveling, having a good time."
Still though, it seems distance makes the heart grow fonder. Does Brody miss Lauren? "So much!" he joked. "No, I do miss Lauren. She's great. She was always fun to go film with and we had a pretty good chemistry."
