The Hills Celebrates 10 Years

Okay so technically it was last week, but we’ve put off writing this post and now we’re catching up! [Hi Beth!] For those of you who don’t know, we watch a lot of television – specifically a lot of REALITY TV and we aren’t ashamed of it. The Hills came onto the air 10 years ago and it was iconic. Every girl wanted to be Lauren and if you didn’t, you were probably a Heidi, Whitney or Audrina which was okay too! I think it was about a year ago that I discovered MTV had the old seasons on OnDemand and I played a serious game of catch up watching episode after episode after episode. Naturally, they flew by because they were just 20-25 minutes. We learned a lot about love [no combat boots at the beach, please] and friendship in that every time we get in a fight with our friends, we shout out, “You know what you did!”

Also who could forget that classic lonely black tear shed on Lauren’s face.

But what’s the most important lesson of all?

You NEVER chose the boy over Paris. Lauren learned a tough lesson with that and god, the world never lets her forget it! Honestly this list could go on, but we want to keep this short. :)

So it was announced last week that there will actually be Hills special airing on MTV in August and we couldn’t be more thrilled. We’re going to see where Lauren is at (married and being successful of course) and learn more juicy details about what it was like to film for the show.

The producers actually already shared some pretty good details that I poured over last week regarding the series and it’s something I think you’ll all find interesting as well – if you’re a fan, that is! You can check it out here!

The Real World Back in Seattle

The Real World is bringing things back to Seattle for Season 32 and more specifically to my old neighborhood of Capitol Hill. They are going to be right on the street that I lived on and it’s actually the prime place to be. Capitol Hill has changed a lot since I last called it home, but it’s the perfect environment for any young 20-something that doesn’t know what they’re doing in their life and needs to be on a reality show. What exactly is the recipe for that? Hip bars within walking distance, trendy restaurants, and a bunch of bros that have invaded my favorite neighborhood. Oh sorry, does this sound negative? I’m not even going to be there, but I am very much looking forward to this season as long as it pays homage to the original Seattle season. Janet was always my spirit animal – we were so much alike except for the smoking.

The Real World used to be such an iconic show and one that I have watched through the years, but as of late – things have gotten a little weird. They bring in the exes of all of the housemates to live. with them. and they all hook up with each other and it’s crazy. Also, they don’t seem to have jobs anymore, which is something that I really appreciated because that seems pretty realistic doesn’t it? To have a job in your 20’s? Here’s hoping that Season 32 goes back to their roots! (though I’m not holding my breath)

Snaps for a Snapshot

Who: Kendall Jenner

Wearing: Balmain

Where: 2016 MTV Movie Awards

There hasn’t been that much coverage on the 2016 MTV Movie Awards yet and the weird thing is that a lot of celebrities are ending up in photos that are from backstage or the after party as many opted out of the red carpet. Embarrassed much?

We love this look from Kendall though because of the high-low dress (a trend we’re loving this season!) and these incredible lace ups. Peep her Instagram account to see the work that went into getting her in these.

When you need a laugh or when you start to question whether or not your life is crumbling, just remember that MTV is looking for these people to make television shows about. I don’t even know what some of these things even mean.

MTV’s “No Cameras Allowed”

I’m totally interested in watching this. MTV just made a documentary about a guy who has been sneaking into major music festivals and capturing his entire experience. You can watch the full documentary here. And I’ll probably watch this when I have time next!

2014 MTV Video Music Awards [Arrivals]

Ariana Grande in Moschino top and skirt. This is kind of a hard look for Ariana who is known for her sweet strapless dresses, but this IS her night after all – opening the VMA’s, debuting the music video for “Bang Bang” and releasing her latest album “My Everything” tonight!

Finding Carter

I really don’t need to be adding any more shows to watch in addition to all the TV shows that I watch each night, but this one looked good! It’s surprising, right? Because it’s MTV. Actually the real reason I’m watching this series is because the main character “Carter” is played by Kathryn Prescott who was probably one of my favorite characters in Skins. I have no doubts that she will do an amazing job in this series as well.

Mike Song & Phil Garvin – AlunaGeorge “Attracting Flies” Choreography

Oh boy, I’ve been a huge fan of Mike Song since I first watched him with Kaba Modern on America’s Best Dance Crew. I’m not sure if that entire team is still doing something together, but I like the fact that most of them are still dancing and doing their own side projects. This choreography and remix are amazing.

Song of the Day

Miley Cyrus – #GETITRIGHT

So I’m a little bit embarrassed that this is today’s Song of the Day, but I watched her perform last night on Miley’s MTV Unplugged Special and really found myself enjoying it. Cute, no?

Jamie Chung and Bryan Greenberg Are Engaged!

Congrats to my favorite ex-San Diego Real Worlder and one of my favorite (underrated) characters on One Tree Hill. They aren’t so much of a hi-pri couple, but we like them both all the same. The couple became engaged over the holidays and began dating in the spring of 2012.

Jamie basically wins all around for being the most successful Real World cast member.

The Real World Trailer (Season 29)

Every season, I generally get pretty excited about The Real World. I’m not sure why because the same scenarios happen every single time, but I had heard a rumor that the castmates were actually living in San Francisco this season. Naturally, I wanted a sighting – don’t worry – it hasn’t happened yet or anything. Then I learned that on this season, the tables would be turned. The season would start out with seven singles living in a house in San Francisco, but after a mini-trip, they return to find that every one of their exes has moved into the house.

MTV, now you’re just REALLY creating the drama yourself. Not only is it weird, but it’s crowded. I have to remember 14 more stories about each person and lord knows I don’t have time for that. I’m no longer excited about the season because I know it’s going to be a hot mess, but I don’t have enough self-control to not watch at all.

Life is hard, you guys.
