Kristin Cavallari gives unfiltered take on The Hills reboot with new young cast

Kristin Cavallari, who rose to fame during the original run of The Hills, has shared her unfiltered take on the upcoming reboot.

Last month it emerged that MTV is developing a show called The Hills: Next Gen with a completely new cast of young people.

While hosting e! NewsDaily Pop, Kristin, 35, called Next Gen “a slap in the face” to older The Hills stars who had returned for the previous New Beginnings revival.

She shared that Next Gen felt like “a totally different show,” saying, “If they get a brand new cast, what are you going to call it The Hills?”

Around the time her spiky comments went public, Kristin was spotted swinging by West Hollywood celebrity hotspot Craig’s.

She cut a summery figure in a pale sea green cocktail dress that hugged her enviably slender figure and fell seductively off the shoulder.

The Hills originally aired on MTV from 2006 to 2010 as a spin-off of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, the show that made Kristin a star.

Kristin was a prominent figure in the original cast of The Hills, along with names such as Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge, Brody Jenner, Spencer Pratt and Lauren Conrad.

Several of the original cast members got back together for a sequel series called The Hills: New Beginnings, but Kristin was not part of that project.

At the time, she was already starring in her own stand-alone reality series Very Cavallari, which ran from 2018 until she decided to end it in 2020.

The Hills: New Beginnings began in 2019 with original cast members such as Audrina, Heidi, Spencer, and Brody, but was canceled in January after just two seasons.

Four months later, news broke that The Hills: Next Gen was in the works, featuring an updated cast of twenty-somethings.

Kristin this week expressed her condolences to Audrina, who had returned for New Beginnings only to see it cancelled.

Audrina has revealed that MTV failed to notify her or her New Beginnings co-stars of her plans to make Next Gen before the news went public.

“That’s definitely a slap in the face,” Kristin said while presenting the Daily Pop. “That would hurt me a little too.”

However, despite her sympathy for Audrina, Kristin was also able to understand the rationale behind doing The Hills with a new cast.

“We are older now, we have children, everyone is a little more concerned about their image,” says Kristin, who is herself a mother of three.

“We’re not going to do what we did when we were in our early twenties. They need a little more drama, a little more fun. For that you have to bring in the young guns.’

A report in Deadline also said Next Gen would have more diversity than the original version of The Hills and address race, identity and class issues.

Stardom: At the time, she was already starring in her own stand-alone reality series Very Cavallari, which ran from 2018 until she decided to end it in 2020.

In January, it was revealed that The Hills: New Beginnings was canceled and the cast got the news a week before it went public.

One of the issues reportedly was that the original stars of The Hills were unhappy with how fabricated they felt some of the storylines were on the revival.

An insider told TMZ that several stars also objected when producers suggested the idea of ​​bringing younger cast members into the fold.
