I was never a The Hills watcher the first time around. Because I couldn’t relate to them. They were fairly close to my age. But they were a bunch of rich kids living and partying in LA. That wasn’t my life. And all they did was gossip and make bad choices. They all seemed like spoiled, narcissistic kids.
So now it is been 9 years and The Hills is back. So I’m giving it a try. Only because I have come to like Spencer and Heidi Pratt.
They aren’t the disgusting people they portrayed on The Hills. They were always upfront and how they were kids coming into a ton of money and how they were stupid with it and lost it.
They moved away from LA for awhile. Spencer got his degree and they had a child. They are both very into crystals and Spencer has made an incredible career with his crystals. I’ve talked to him a few times on Social media, and he’s actually a very kind person. So I know that if I see anything bad from them on this reboot of The Hills, it’s just for the show. Because they are actually really good people.
One thing I understand about Heidi is her anxiety with Motherhood. You feel so connected and responsible for this little person, that you can’t imagine leaving them with anyone. Even their dad. You want to be with your child every moment of every day and it’s hard for you to step away from that. I completely understand that. But she needs to learn to find away to separate herself from that. Not to lose herself completely in motherhood and remember everyone else around her. She’s not just a mom, she’s a wife, sister, and friend. I hope she learns to fight through that anxiety.
So far this new season has been good. A lot of them have grown and changed and a few of them are moms. Like Heidi, Audrina, and Whitney. So I feel like I can relate a little more. I know to watch a show, you don’t have to relate to the characters, but in this regard, I do. I just don’t have the kind of money they all do. So I think I’ll give this a try. Let’s see how scripted this is compared to last time. Maybe I’ll have to watch the first four years so I can understand this one more.
