The Hills alum Lo Bosworth slams former co-stars for joining reboot for ‘paycheck, attention & fame’
THE Hills alum Lo Bosworth has slammed her former co-stars for joining the New Beginnings spin-off for "a paycheck, for attention" and fame.
The ex Laguna Beach star, 34, let rip at the MTV cast, including Spencer Pratt, Heidi Montag and Brody Jenner, who have returned for its second season.
Just Cavallari star Kristin Cavallari will also make a cameo in upcoming episodes, yet New Beginnings season 1 star Mischa Barton has not made a comeback for The Hills: New Beginnings, which hit screens on May 12.
Yet Love Wellness CEO Lo, real name Lauren, has thrown shade on their antics, bluntly telling the Unzipped podcast: "It’s interesting to me to see the people that have chosen to continue to participate in The Hills.
"I’m like, ‘Wow, you guys are really leaning into your TV persona for whatever reason, right?
"For a paycheck, for attention, fame – whatever it is that you need that fulfills you."
In her final cutting comment, she said: "I feel like their [the cast] personalities are probably the same but just how different everybody looks compared to [when they were] 20."
According to People, show bosses have promised New Beginnings episodes showing the "starry friend group reuniting after COVID-19 lockdowns begin to lift in California, with the iconic bunch tackling romance, business shakeups and more."
Yet it's not the only time the California native has called out her reality star pals.
Previously Lo cited her "feminist" beliefs as at the opposite end of the scale to life on TV.
She insisted: "I’m a feminist and I find that a lot of the storylines portrayed on reality television aren’t particularly supportive of women or their missions in life or their businesses.
"So, it’s just not something that’s for me."
She added: "I know how reality television operates and I’m not interested in perpetuating a culture of drama around anyone or anything.
"It’s just not who I am. I don’t like to gossip about people. I don’t like to cause trouble."
Over the years, some of the cast have claimed that they were forced to create tension in the series because that’s what the show-runners wanted.
Cast member Audrina Patridge told E News!: "As it went on, it was very manipulated and guided and you’re kinda put in these scenarios where you would show up and you didn’t know what you were in for until you were there, and you wanted to run out but they locked the door on you."
Yet for the latest instalment, show producers have said that they've tried to keep The Hills as authentic as possible – with few scripts.
Without the use of typical reality television "confessionals," producers have tried their best to relay cast emotions as scenes unfold.
Creator Adam DiVello said, “if we wrote the show, we would have had much bigger story lines than what we were dealing with. I think we would have had gigantic, soap-opera-type story lines.
"We were kind of shackled to the reality of what these people’s situations were."
DiVello also said that he accepted that there were times when they would miss certain things that happen off-camera, and in those instances, they would need to be re-created by the cast.
After they had all the footage they needed, production then reworked it in editing.
