LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – MTV The Hills was fake, claims Kristen Cavallari to local news and a hinting Brody Jenner. The Hills fake news reports plagued the reality show season to season. In later years, The Hills cast members admitted scenes were staged and in some cases faked. Tonight, fans and news are left to debate one last time if the landmark reality show was ever real in the first place.
News always asked if parts of the show were faked. But was the entire show a fake?
Did you believe tonight that was really Audrina’s new place at the beach? Did you buy that Kristin is going to Europe (and yet, still hasn’t left)? Lauren Conrad was one of the first to admit segments of The Hills were fake following her departure from the show. But fans never knew how much of the show was fake.
In fact, tonight’s laughable moment was Kristin by Brody’s pool on a (familiar) Hollywood condo rooftop. Suddenly viewers heard a (non-cellphone) telephone ringing from Brody’s apartment. Of course, there was no apartment anywhere in sight.
Recent comments by Kristin Cavalleri suggest the entire show may have been faked. “Nothing you see on TV is real. Fans need to understand it’s all entertainment. It’s all in fun. I would never put my close friends or a real relationship on a show.”
Tonight, the finale’s last shot showed Kristin getting into a limo while Brody stood underneath the Hollywood sign. The camera pans left to reveal we are actually on a fake Hollywood set. And with that, the show fades to black.
With that last image, Hills producers wanted to tease the notion even further if the show was ever real in the first place. “The thing is, as you saw on the end — what’s real and what’s fake, you don’t know,” said Jenner tonight in the afterparty program. “Our relationship, the entire time could have been fake. That’s one of the questions: what was real and what was fake, and we left it [open].”
“I mean, I think we both couldn’t have been happier with the ending. We were speechless,” Cavallari added.
