The Hills are alive…with the sound of drama.
We’re just two months out from the highly-anticipated debut of The Hills: New Beginnings, with the revival of MTV’s crown jewel beginning on June 24, and already, we’re getting a taste of things to come.
Last week, Spencer Pratt and his sister Stephanie Pratt revived their bitter feud, a centerpiece of the later seasons of The Hills, when the latter put her sister-in-law Heidi Montag on blast during an episode of iHeart Radio’s Pratt Cast last week.
“No one knows the real Heidi,” Stephanie shared. “Before The Hills: New Beginnings, my mom, my brother and I all sat down and we said we will not let this ruin our family again. I’m done. I don’t care. I’m not protecting them anymore.”
She continued, explaining that she had no intention of pretending her brother and sister-in-law were “good people” anymore. “For the [expletive] they have done to me recently, I’m done. This is why I moved to London. I’m done,” she shared. “They are the most toxic people I’ve ever met. They are Bonnie and Clyde till they die so if they say this sky is black, all of us are morons for saying it’s blue.”
When asked by her co-host Wells Adams if this was an attempt to drum up publicity for the show, Stephanie assured listeners it was not. “This is me actually exiting my family. I’ve tried to be nice to her for 10 years because I love my brother,” she said. “It never changes. They flip the switch on me and I have no idea…None of it makes sense.”
Responding to Stephanie’s claims on their own podcast, Heidi said the feud was “heartbreaking,” but that there was “no way I’m not standing up for myself and my family.”
“Heidi’s not playing,” Spencer added.
In other words? Game on.
Truly, this is some vintage The Hills drama right here, and it has us hopeful that New Beginnings just might have some juice in it after all. We were a bit worried when the central figure from the show’s original run, the newly-pregnant Lauren Conrad, opted to sit this reunion out, choosing to focus on her business and her growing family. (Similarly, current E! star Kristin Cavallari and Lauren’s sidekick Lo Bosworth have chosen not to return as well.) What’s The Hills without Lauren or Kristin? We’re about to find out.
Before we watch as Heidi, Spencer and Stephanie are joined by fellow familiar faces Whitney Port, Audrina Patridge, Jason Wahler, Brody Jenner, Justin “Bobby” Brescia, and Frankie Delgado, as well as newcomers Brandon Thomas Lee and Mischa Barton (because why not?), let’s take a look back at the 10 most dramatic moments from The Hills OG. Do any of these unforgettable storylines stand a chance of being revisited in New Beginnings? We’ll fill you in on the chances below!
And the rest is still unwritten…
The Hills: New Beginnings debuts on Monday, June 24 on MTV.
