Lauren Conrad talks former ‘Hills,’ ‘Laguna Beach’ castmates

HollywoodNews.com: Lauren Conrad has removed herself from reality TV for some time, but now she isn’t as shy about opening up about her former castmates on ‘The Hills’ and ‘Laguna Beach.’
Conrad was speaking with Andy Cohen on ‘Watch What Happens Live’ when she spoke about Heidi Montag and Kristin Cavallari, states UsMagazine.com. “I thought that she was beautiful before it. I don’t think she needed it. But, personal decision,” Conrad said about her former best friend undergoing ten plastic surgeries.
And while Conrad and Cavallari were not exactly friends on ‘Laguna Beach,’ it seems she does have a few compliments for the new mom: “She’s really good at losing baby weight. That’s true! She is a very pretty girl. There’s a lot of nice things! I was just trying to get more specific. She dresses really nicely.”

Lauren Conrad talks truthfulness of ‘The Hills’

HollywoodNews.com: Fans of reality TV always want to know if the shows are scripted or real, and it seems Lauren Conrad thinks that her former show, ‘The Hills,’ was pretty real.
Conrad opened up to ‘Allure’ about how the storylines portrayed on the show were honest, states UsMagazine.com. “I think the story they told wasn’t a dishonest one. The way they did it sometimes was,” Conrad admitted.
“Sometimes two of their main characters will get into a fight, and that’s important to the story line. The [producers] need that reenacted. Their thing was always: It did happen. They’re not making this up: you just didn’t see it,” Conrad said about how the show worked.
Conrad also admitted that she did, in fact, date Brody Jenner briefly although editing made it seem like a much longer romance.

‘Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star isn’t worried about marriage falling apart

HollywoodNews.com: The marriages on various ‘Real Housewives’ programs have a tendency to have issues and not survive, but one ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star isn’t worried about that happening to her.
Kyle Richards recently commented that she won’t let her marriage fall apart like others have on the shows, states People. “I’m very, very, very protective. If I ever felt like something was being affected in any way by the show, I would just walk away in a millisecond,” Kyle commented about her marriage with Mauricio Umansky.
She also thinks that people need to consider their marriages before joining a reality TV show cast: “My suggestion to anybody who [wants to do] a reality show, if you have cracks in your marriage, don’t do one of these. You have to be really, really solid in order to do a reality show like this. I feel solid.”

The former reality TV star stepped out in Chicago with her son in order to take him for a walk, states People. Cavallari enjoyed looking down at her little boy in his stroller while hitting the city streets.
And Cavallari looked pretty good herself as she was dressed casually and comfortably in a loose-fitting black dress which is her signature style as of now: “I’ve mostly been wearing my most comfortable clothes — lots of leggings and T-shirts and maxi dresses. I’ve been so tired, so whatever is easiest is what I’m wearing.”

Kim Kardashian striving for star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

HollywoodNews.com: Kim Kardashian has plenty these days, but one thing she wants is one thing she is reportedly not being allowed to have.
Kim recently opened up in an interview with ‘V magazine’ about wanting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame despite reality TV stars not being allowed to have one, states Hollyscoop. “I think there was a quote where somebody said that reality stars will never get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. So, of course I’m so competitive that I think that it would be a huge achievement and a goal that anyone would want. I would love to break that mold,” Kim commented.
However, it might be quite a fight as a rep for the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce commented, “She has not been nominated. She is a reality star. We don’t do reality stars. She needs to get a real acting job then come to us.”
Do you think she’ll ever get a star?

The immorality of The Hunger Games

By Scott Mendelson
HollywoodNews.com: The Hunger Games, as it exists as a film, is caught between two worlds. One on hand, it wants to be a dramatic thriller about a totalitarian regime that picks children at random and forces them to fight each other to the death for the entertainment of the wealthy masses. On the other hand, it wants to be a series that appeals to mass audiences in order to rack up massive box office grosses and become ‘the next big franchise’.
Note – this is not a conventional review and there will be far more spoilers than usual. So warned…
As a direct result of this conundrum, the picture not only fails as a social/political commentary but becomes an ugly celebration of the very narrative that it should be condemning. By refusing to look directly at its own story and by instead fashioning a convenient morality out of its murderous sporting event, it lets the audience off the hook and even encourages them to enjoy the blood-sport as ‘entertainment’. The film may appear to be mocking reality show conventions and the tendency to emphasize simplistic narratives to alleviate discomfort, but by virtue of what it omits and what it emphasizes, The Hunger Games is a prime example of what it claims to criticize. The film is so afraid to confront the horror of its premise that, in its need to create a mass-audience PG-13 franchise, it makes the cheering audience culpable and every bit as guilty as those who would watch such a thing in real life.
First and foremost, the film fails by refusing to develop or examine nearly all of the 24 Hunger Games contestants. The large number of competitors/victims is actually solved by having eleven of them get slaughtered within the first five minutes of the competition (eight hours in actual time). So the majority of the onscreen competition comes down to thirteen contestants. Other than the lead character (Katniss Everdeen played by Jennifer Lawrence) and her would-be partner/love interest (Peeta Mellark played by Josh Hutcherson), not a single contestant is given any depth. For the majority of the film, we are watching unnamed contestants kill other nearly-faceless contestants. When the cast is whittled down, we are left with the pretty blonde, the cute redhead, the brunette, the tall black guy, the young black girl, the [...]

Kristin Cavallari talks about already wanting a second child

HollywoodNews.com: Former ‘Laguna Beach’ and ‘Hills’ star Kristin Cavallari hasn’t even had her first child yet, but it sounds like she is already planning for her second baby with fiance Jay Cutler.
Cavallari recently opened up to ‘Glamoholic’ about putting her wedding on hold in order to grow her family a little more, states UsMagazine.com. “We were talking about the possibility of having another kid right away and then getting married so we can have two kids close in age,” the former reality TV star revealed.
However, they apparently won’t stop having kids at that point: “We want four kids, so we’re thinking maybe have one more, then get married, then have two more. But we’ll see — it all depends on how the first one goes.”
How many kids do you think they’ll have?
