Episode Discussion

What did you think of tonight's episodes?

'The Hills' Cast on Extra

"Extra's" Lauren Sanchez sat down with "The Hills" stars, Brody Jenner, Audrina Patridge and Kristin Cavallari, who responded to accusations that executive producer Adam DiVello had been inappropriate with Heidi Montag
Brody calls Adam "one of the nicest guys," who is not at all inappropriate. Audrina told Sanchez that she and the producer managed to butt heads, but that he'd never been inappropriate, nor is he ever there while on set filming.
Kristin, however, had a different opinion of DiVello. "I filmed with Heidi recently and he was on set that day. He's never there on set when we're (Audrina and Brody) there. Who knows, who knows what's true or not."

Cavallari, like Heidi, has also been a hot media target, with rumors flying that she's struggling with a drug problem. She accuses DiVello of not having her back in the press, saying, "He's not my favorite person. I'm gonna be honest. He has good ratings because (we're on) the cover of Us Weekly -- at my expense."
When the magazine asked MTV to comment, they wouldn't respond. "Which might as well be saying she has a drug problem. They didn't have my back whatsoever," said Cavallari.

Olivia Palermo: NY Beauty

Kicking off her week with a big city stroll, Olivia Palermo was spotted out and about in New York City yesterday (May 3).
Joined by a gal pal, the “City” chick looked to be in good spirits as she made her way past the waiting paparazzi.
Sunday (May 2) Olivia joined her handsome beau Johannes Huebl for a walk through the trendy West Village neighborhood.
Ms. Palermo told press that she’s not willing to bring her relationship into her reality television career. "He is not on 'The City,' he'll never be on 'The City.' It will never be on. My producers can't go anywhere near him. It's in my contract. They can't."

Stephanie Pratt: The Hills Beauty Dishes on the Final Season, Kristin Cavallari & Kicking Bad Habits

PR.com (Allison Kugel): Were you caught off guard when MTV revealed that this would be the final season of The Hills?
Stephanie Pratt: No. I think we all pretty much knew that it would be the last season, the fact that it’s the sixth season, crazy! We all pretty much knew it going into it, and we weren’t surprised when they announced it.
PR.com: What are your thoughts about The Hills ending?
Stephanie Pratt: When we get asked how it feels that it’s the end, it doesn’t really feel like it’s the end, because we just starting filming, like, two months ago. But it’s really sad. I’m such a people person, and to have a job where you’ve got, like, forty cast and crew and people making jokes and having crew meals, it’s just a fun job. That’s definitely going to be the saddest part, not having the crew around. I’m excited for what’s going to happen next, and to spend more time on my handbag line and on another collaboration.
PR.com: Are you still in school?
Stephanie Pratt: I’m not at FDIM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising) anymore. I stopped FDIM last year. [The handbag line] is coming out in Fall, 2010. Every season is going to be a different story, and since studs are going to still be really big in the Fall I designed this collection with a lot of studs. And they all have the long strap option, because I love purses that have that. I just saw the samples for the first time two weeks ago, and then on Monday I made the last modifications on a few of them. Now they are getting fixed and then they are going to be done. It’s so insane!

PR.com: Many times when celebrities do lines somebody just shows them the work and they approve it. Since you actually went to school for this, how hands on were you in developing this handbag line?
Stephanie Pratt: Really hands on. About two years ago I bought software for Adobe Illustrator where I could design, because I’m horrible at free-draw. I was never good at it, and that was kind of my biggest fear. I had all these ideas in my head, but I can’t draw for the life of me. “How am I going to get them on paper?” I researched and researched, and found some software, it’s called Amherst Library. I took a lot of Illustrator classes at FDIM, so I designed all of the bags on Adobe Illustrator and then printed them out and faxed them to the factories.
PR.com: Speaking of school, you say that is where you met Lauren Conrad. Is that how you got on The Hills, or was it through your brother, Spencer?
Stephanie Hills: It was both. I was at FDIM before Lauren came to FDIM. And randomly, everyone thinks it was set up, but no one knew who I was because I was never on the show and my brother had started dating Heidi, and then on the call sheet they saw my last name and asked me if I was related to Spencer, [because] Lauren was in that class randomly. I was like, “Yeah, I am.” Obviously, I knew who Lauren was, and then they asked me to be on the show. It all happened by chance. If they never asked me if I was related to Spencer, and if I wasn’t in that class that Lauren walked into I probably never would have gotten on the show.
PR.com: Because they were shooting Lauren going to school.
Stephanie Pratt: Yep, and I was already there and it was the first day of class. It was the most random thing ever.
PR.com: How has the vibe of the show changed since Kristin Cavallari replaced Lauren Conrad?
Stephanie Pratt: We’re not all as good friends. It sucks not having Lauren there because we all really love Lauren. Now they put on a “frenemy,” so we’re all just more on our toes.
PR.com: They put Kristin on The Hills knowing that nobody really cares for her too much? Is that the situation?
Stephanie Pratt: Yeah. They brought her on to shake things up.
PR.com: How are you doing these days, as far as your body issues?
Stephanie Pratt: I am doing amazing. This is probably the best time of my life. I became more informed about what I was eating, and so I’m a better consumer at markets. And I just stopped putting so much pressure on myself. I got healthier.
PR.com: Are you exercising as well, and do you have any fitness tips to share?
Stephanie Pratt: I’m definitely more active. I’ll always try to take the stairs instead of the elevator in my apartment, and I walk my dog. I love going swimming now that it’s getting warmer. It’s great exercise. And it’s just the small things; I used to put tons of half and half into my coffee. I didn’t know half and half turned into butter. So I use nonfat milk, and then non-fat yogurt with no-carb granola for breakfast. For snacks, instead of M&Ms I’ll sauté spinach with olive oil and lemon or have a banana. I try to find a good combination between being active and just making healthier choices. When I’m craving ice cream I’ll have one of the 120 calorie drumsticks. I just try not to get out of hand.
PR.com: There was a point when you were going down a bad path.
Stephanie Pratt: Yeah, absolutely.
PR.com: What made you want to turn your life around and get involved in more positive things?
Stephanie Pratt: I was really lucky that I could get therapy for myself. Even though in my life I don’t have one complaint right now, I feel really great and everything is going great, I still go every week. I learned that my self-esteem comes from doing work. I was very enabled growing up; I never had to lift a finger. I was very blessed and so I never felt good about myself because I wasn’t doing anything. Now, the busier I am and the more I work, and the more I try to do for animals, that’s where I get my self-esteem. I feel good after working a hard day. Also, when I am disappointed I have a narcissistic tendency to say, “Ok, what is it about me? Why didn’t I get this job? Why doesn’t this guy want to be with me?” I’m just realizing that it’s not necessarily about me and it’s about the other person, possibly, or it’s about a situation or a circumstance. I’m taking the “me” out of a lot of equations. I’m not blaming myself for everything. Normally, I would love to blame myself growing up. And I’m not dependent on other people clapping for me and saying, “Great job! You’re doing great!” I’m not needing people’s approval as much as I did growing up. Every day it’s like exercise for the brain, to be aware that if something doesn’t go right to not subconsciously take it out on myself.
PR.com: Many times we all think we’re so unique, but as human beings we are actually all very much the same as far as the things that trip us up, like narcissism, ego or insecurity. Sometimes it’s just not knowing where to find that source of positive energy or self-esteem.
Stephanie Pratt: I never knew how to get self-esteem. I was like, “Oh, I just need to be skinny and pretty.” And then I still felt really empty inside.
PR.com: Did growing up in the Pacific Palisades in Los Angeles have a negative effect on you?
Stephanie Pratt: I don’t think so. I’ve been obsessed with fashion my whole life, so no matter where I grew up I would have magazine cut-outs of all of these supermodels all over my walls, because I loved supermodels and the whole fashion world. That is really what [did it]. I started to compare myself to that. It wasn’t necessarily my surroundings, it was just what I loved and what I thought was perfection.
PR.com: What’s your favorite social networking site?
Stephanie Pratt: Twitter! I love Twitter. Facebook has a friend capacity. You can’t have that many friends on Facebook, and with Twitter, it’s just really fun to see what your friends are doing all the time. And it’s an easier application.
PR.com: Do you interact with Hills fans on Twitter?
Stephanie Pratt: Oh yeah. That’s the really fun part. It’s really cool to talk to the fans. I actually just got this insane birthday present from a fan on Twitter, and I got to talk to her today and thank her so much for it.
PR.com: Can you sum up this last season of The Hills?
Stephanie Pratt: It’s very raw and surprising. All of us are going to show a different side that has never been shown before.

Kristin Cavallari on Wendy Williams (video)

With the final season of her hit reality show underway, Kristin Cavallari voiced her disappointment over Heidi Montag's season premiere debut of her post-surgery body.
Talking with Wendy Williams, Miss Cavallari said, "Oh my God, when she goes to see her mom, I almost started crying. It's sad."
The "Hills" hottie continues, "At the end of the day, it's her body and if she's happy that's all that really matters. I think she's very young and I think that she was absolutely beautiful before and didn't need any of it done."
Kristin also confirmed rumors that Miss Montag refused to take part in a cast photo shoot, telling, "No one saw her. She didn't take the group photo with us, which was really kind of... I don't know, I mean I've always gotten along with Heidi, Audrina has, and we all were just kind of disappointed."
