Kristin Cavallari recently sat down with SPLASH, a magazine I’ve never heard of, to discuss her life post-baby and post-MTV.
In case you’re too young to remember Laguna Beach and the days before pregnant teenagers and Snooki ran rampant on MTV, here’s a quick run-down: Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad both appeared on Laguna Beach before The Hills ever existed. Cameras followed Cavallari, Conrad and their equally annoying classmates through their senior year. We got to watch Kristin and LC fight constantly over a a guy named “Stephhhennnnn” and do lots of rich-kids-in-California type things, like going to Cabo San Lucas for spring break when most kids have to go to their grandma’s for Easter dinner as part of their spring break voyages.
Anyway, Kristin was a real See You Next Tuesday at times, but Cavallari says it was all for show:
“The producers were really crappy to me…I felt like everybody was against me and manipulating me, and that forced me to be a bitch.”
After high school, Cavallari moved to Los Angeles so “people could forget about the Kristin from ‘Laguna Beach.’” Except that being “Kristin from ‘Laguna Beach’” is what kept her in the headlines, and therefore famous enough to still be relevant 10 years later.
Now she’s engaged to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, mother to their son Camden, and designing a shoe line or something. So apparently being a bitch on an MTV reality show a decade ago paid off for her in the end.
Excuse me while I cry zero tears for her and any other reality show star who feels they were portrayed poorly. But I will totally download every episode of Laguna Beach and park myself in my recliner for the rest of the day.
