The Hills Season 3. Review/Thoughts/Spoilers!

If you're a fan of The Hills, you definitely did not miss the first two episodes of season three, RIGHT?

WRONG. As much as I anticipated the season premiere, I became completely distracted in other things. MY DVR finally recorded the reruns at 1:00 and 1:30 this morning and I must say I'm kind of disappointed after watching them.

SPOILERS AHEAD (for those who missed it) :

Episdoe 1 "You know what you did" :

I'm happy to see Whitney move up in TeenVogue. Who wouldn't want to get a position and a salary after 5 years of being an intern? It's obvious working at TeenVogue isn't just some job for her, she really wants to get forward in the industry.

As for Lauren, I'm glad she is over Jason (or so it seems) but I was shocked of her obvious attraction for the Londoner at Les Deux...I understand she was drunk, but she's never really acted like that before on camera.

Another night at Les Deux for a friends birthday, a fight breaks out between LC and Heidi. Apparently, according to Lauren and others, Heidi and her vicious man Spencer began a rumor of an inappropriate home video featuring Lauren and her ex-beau Jason Wahler which eventually circulated the internet so much that it reached LC's mother and had her questioning Lauren about it. As Heidi was pressured by Spence (once again) to seek answers from Lauren ignoring her and not coming to her house warming party, Lauren lost control of emotions and publicly denounced Heidi as no longer being a part of her life and exclaiming she never wanted to speak to her again.

What I'm wondering though is...what evidence is there that Heidi had something to do with it? It's easy to accuse the slimeball Spencer but I still think Heidi has some consideration for Lauren and her privacy as a friend - if the rumor is true or not.

Episode 2 "The Proposal" :

Audrina re-introduces her ex, Justin (or Bobby, as he likes to be called...weirdo) into her life and decides to give him a second chance after abandoning her in Las Vegas two years earlier to visit a strip club with his buddies. Right off the bat, Lauren has speculations that this kid Bobby may not the best for Audrina but rather than risk losing another friend, she keeps these feelings to herself and vents to Lo. Before Audrina goes to dinner with Bobby, she tells Lauren that she has two tickets (for Lauren and her) for 40 Deuce for later that evening. One hour dinner turns into two and eventually she returns home with Bobby where he meets Lo and sees Lauren. Audrina informs Lauren she is going to 40 Deuce with Bobby. Without even asking first, she gave away Laurens ticket just like that. It's obvious through Laurens facial expressions that she's a bit stunned, but once again, says nothing.

That is essentially Lauren's worst flaw. On the show, she seems like a very caring friend but she tends to let people walk all over her. Though she's improving on when and how to properly react, in this episode she could be making a big mistake by not saying anything to Audrina. It may not be a big deal but it's how Heidi started with Spencer...suddenly choosing a boy over her friend.


I couldn't believe Spence proposed to Heidi. Sure, I'd read about their engagement in magazines, but I never imagined it would happen in the first episode! I really hope maybe it means they...eventually...break up? Maybe that's just wishful thinking. Really, without the cameras and fame, I highly doubt Spencer would be with her. I really liked Heidi before Spencer came along. I think Lauren and her shared good times, and it seemed like she took care of her friends in tough times, like when Jason prompted an argument with Lauren that one New Years Eve...

Surely there is tons more drama on the way. Stay tuned. I'll definitely try not to miss it =)
