Secrets You May Not Have Known About ‘The Hills’

Published

on

The Hills are alive with the sound of… secrets. Before making a return in 2019, here’s some shit you probably didn’t know about the 2000s reality-ish series.

Secret No. 1: MTV originally wanted confessionals from the cast members.

Liz Gately, executive producer of the show, told Entertainment Tonight: “The network got really scared that we weren’t putting testimonials in there. The audience didn’t really know what it was. They said, ‘Are these bad actors?’ or, ‘What’s going on?’… That’s where the editors also were our storytellers. We had the best editors in the business, and the best field people that caught things that we would’ve never been able to catch.”

Ultimately, Lauren Conrad’s narrating guided us through the lives of LC, her friends and frenemies.

Secret No. 2: Producers really wanted LC to go to Paris

Lauren’s title of “the girl who didn’t do to Paris” reportedly came from Anna Wintour herself, who supposedly donned Lauren with the nickname when the Hills star came up in conversation.

Instead of taking the opportunity to travel to Paris with Teen Vogue, where she was interning at the time, she opted to stay home with her boyfriend, Jason.

Liz Gately said in an interview that the show’s creator, Adam DiVello, wanted to try to convince her to go, and she was adamant that she was not going to pursue an internship in Paris. “We tried to convince her, but at the end of the day, she wasn’t going. That was an authentic moment to that [theme of] coming of age. It’s like, who doesn’t look back and wish they had gone to Europe for the summer? Or taken that internship in D.C.? Or whatever it was, because they stayed behind for a boy or a girl. I mean, everybody does that. It was perfect,” Gately said.

Secret No. 3: The cast almost demanded more money

Lauren Conrad made the most on the show, at one time earning $125,000 per episode. Heidi Montag told BuzzFeed the rest of the cast, who each earned $100,000 or less per episode, was going to demand more money, saying: “Cast members did all make different salaries, so we wanted to do likeJersey Shore and unite together and all get a bigger paycheck, but everyone was a little bit too divided. I think that would’ve been the smarter thing for everyone to do at the time, but that’s not what happened.”

Now we’re ready for some new beginnings.

Kanye West Wants To Arrange Meeting Between Kaepernick and Trump

Published

on

WARNING: Kanye West has a new album to promote, so expect BIZARRE behavior.

Kanye West’s new album, “Yhandi,” was promised to drop during his Sept. 29 appearance on the season premiere of “Saturday Night Live.” That didn’t happen. Instead, the release date was changed to Nov. 23, a.k.a., Black Friday. In less than 48 hours, his outlandish conduct has included: controversy over wanting to abolish the 13th Amendment (which ended slavery), the filming of a music video in the grass by the parking lot outside of TMZ’s HQ, and announcing he’s trying to organize a meeting between Colin Kaepernick and President Donald Trump. More bat-shit craziness is likely to come.

Trump has been extremely critical of Kaepernick, strongly pressuring NFL owners to fire all of the “sons of bitches” who don’t stand for the national anthem.

But West wants to bring them together. During an interview Monday on “TMZ Live,” West said he’s reached out to Kaepernick to try to make that happen. Unless you’ve been trapped in human trafficking circles, you likely know Kaepernick was under intense scrutiny from Trump after kneeling during the national anthem at football games to shine a light on police brutality against black people.

He didn’t say if either side was open to the idea, but Trump has praised West for being a brilliant leader.

Meanwhile, Kim:

On a positive note, West did premiere a new song on “Saturday Night Live” that might just be his best song this decade. Check it out:

Cardi B Turned Herself Into Police After Strip Club Fight

Published

Cardi B turned herself in to New York Police police at the 109th Precinct in Queens Monday morning over charges stemming from a fight at a strip club.

Sources told TMZ that Cardi B has “long-standing beef” with a bartender at the club, with whom she allegedly started the fight. The rapper was at Angels Strip Club back in Aug. 2018 to watch her husband, Offset, perform with Migos on the night of the incident, and she allegedly told her crew to attack the women with bottles and chairs after rumors swirled that one of them had slept with Offset.

The new mom was involved in another fight recently. In September, Cardi B was left with a welt on her head after she was involved in an altercation with Nicki Minaj at a New York Fashion Week party.

Joe Tacopina, the attorney representing the two female bartenders, released a statement to CNN stating: “Cardi B ordered and committed violent assaults against my clients, and is being called to justice for her crimes. Apparently, she thinks her celebrity status puts her above the law, since she has bragged to multiple people and on social media that she orchestrated these vicious attacks,” Tacopina said. “But reality is setting in, as justice does not care whether her name is Cardi B or Carly B, and she will now answer for her crimes.”
“We’re aware of no evidence that she caused anybody any harm on that night,” Jeff Kern, an attorney representing Cardi B told press outside the police precinct. “We expect that the matter is going to be resolved expeditiously.”
