Reality TV star Kristin Cavallari has featured on several reality TV shows, including one for herself. However, she is most famous for her performance in the MTV show “The Hills,” which followed several young women as they graduated from college and ventured into the real world.
Cavallari’s days with MTV and “The Hills” are long and gone. In fact, she is so out of tune with that part of her life that she had no idea that there were plans to reboot “The Hills.” During her co-host feature on Daily Pop, she spoke about how she found out about the reboot and her opinions on it. Read on to find out more.
The Producers Told Cavallari About The New Show
During Cavallari’s stint as a co-host for E! ‘s Daily Pop on June 14th, she spoke about the new reboot of “The Hills” and revealed that it was E! ‘s producers that actually told her first about the revival.
The new revival, titled “The Hills: Next Gen,” is set to feature a group of young people in their 20s and, according to Cavallari, is like “a totally different show.” She also said, “If they’re getting an entirely new cast, how are you even going to call it The Hills?”
Cavallari herself was on the very first “The Hills,” which was very popular during its time and ran for six seasons, from 2006 to 2010. It was a spinoff show of “Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County,” which Cavallari also featured in.
She Thinks The Previous Cast Should Be Angry
Cavallari also spoke about how weird it was that she had to find out through the producers. She expressed sympathy and understanding for Audrina Patridge; another reality star featured on the original “The Hills” with Cavallari and its successor, “The Hills: New Beginnings.”
Cavallari revealed that all the cast members from “The Hills: New Beginnings” also learned about the new reboot the way everyone else did. The studio didn’t give them the courtesy to tell any of them about the new show. Cavallari said, “That’s definitely a slap in the face. I would be a little butt-hurt about that too.”
“The Hills: New Beginnings” aired on MTV from 2019 to 2021 and featured most of the cast from the original “The Hills,” except for Lauren Conrad. Conrad starred in her own spinoff show, titled “The Hills: This Was Then, This Is Now.” Her show featured Brody Jenner and Heidi Montag and ran from 2006 to 2010.
Cavallari Understands Why They’re Starting Afresh
It has been years since “The Hills” and “The Hills: New Beginnings,” which is why Cavallari explained that she understands why the studio saw the need to start afresh, with new faces and voices.
She explained on Daily Pop, “We’re older now, we have kids, everyone is a little bit more concerned about their image. We’re not going around doing what we did in our early 20s. They need a little bit more drama, a little bit more fun. You gotta bring in the young guns for that.”

Very little information has been released on “The Hills: Next Gen,” and the cast is still unknown. However, according to Deadline, the new show will feature an entirely new group of young friends and showcase the new and “very different” sides of Los Angeles.
According to the report, the show’s new cast “will navigate realities of race, class, identity, addiction, family drama along with the thrills of romance and becoming self-made amidst the exclusive enclave of the hills in Malibu.”
“The Hills: Next Gen” is just one of many reality shows MTV is revamping and bringing back. The network has turned its focus to the most successful of its unscripted series from the past few decades. Other popular shows receiving new installments include “Cribs,” “The Real Life,” and “Jersey Shore.”
