To be honest, despite my unconditional love for Lauren Conrad, I was not expecting a good 5th season from The Hills. Perhaps this was because Lauren was hesitant to do another season, so I didn’t think it would be as good. However, come last Monday night, I was pleasantly surprised! I actually found my self entranced in the 1 hour premiere – from Lauren and Heidi crying together at Lauren’s birthday, to Spencer’s drama at the bar, to Heidi going to Colorado…I thought the episode was actually good!
However, I do think that Lauren was extremely intoxicated at her birthday – which is why she was crying and embracing Heidi. So, don’t blame Lauren… blame the alcohol. Because the next day she was so mad at Stephaine for inviting her. And she told her off really well!
Also, how does the bartender ‘Stacy’ not know who Spencer and Heidi are? Like are you living under a rock? So that was definitely scripted. But I did love in the 3rd episode (this Monday’s) when Stephanie and Stacy get into a fight and she calls Stephanie a dog because she’s wearing fur and Stephanie calls Stacy a slut because she’s ‘not wearing pants’. That was a great scene. I cannot handle Spencer and Heidi alone together – so any scene with them I want to shoot myself. But that scene at the club was really god. Also, the scene where Stephanie tells Spencer off – “you don’t have any friends” – priceless.
Now, a lot of people have been hating on Lauren’s bright red lipstick (which she wore at her birthday party) – but I personally really liked it. It was very 40’s glam and I think it looked good on her and was a change from what she usually wears. Also, I don’t know if anyone else noticed but she is also sporting a new side braid – instead of wearing it pinned to her head, she has it half french braided and the rest pulled up and pinned. This is hard to explain but I’ll put pictures up as soon as I can find them.
All in all, I think that this season is off to a very good start!
