Ten years ago, The Hills was everything. I used to envy Lauren’s fashionable and fun life in L.A. It all seemed so perfect.
I was young and naïve at the time. The Hills was popular when I was starting my teen years. At 14 and 15 years old, I never really understood what was happening in their lives, and to be honest, I couldn’t really relate. At the time girls my age envied the show and dreamt of having a trendy and cool life in L.A. like Lauren, Whitney, and Audrina (no one envied Heidi let’s be honest).
Now, I am roughly the same age as Lauren and the girls were when they were filming the show. So, after The Hills 10 year anniversary special aired, I decided to rewatch The Hills from the beginning and see if watching it again would change the way I understood the show. What I never realized before is no matter how much money and fame you have, everyone in their 20s has the same drama, and goes through the same things.
Thank you, LC for teaching me so much that I never realized.
