As a special treat, on Friday, August 9 at 11:30 a.m. ET/PT, MTV will air an alternate ending to The Hills. When the series ended its 6-season run in 2010, the final scene showed Cavallari and Brody Jenner saying goodbye, before a back drop moved and depicted the green screen they were in front of as a nod to the rumors that the show was fake. read more
Lauren Conrad's top words of wisdom
How did any of us survive high school? Forget grades. We're talking insecurities, anxieties and social terrors, which have rarely found such vivid comic voice as in MTV's wonderful comedy Awkward, which begins a third season of emotionally harrowing hilarity with back-to-back episodes (Tuesday, 10/9c).
It's junior year (or "the beginning of the end") for the show's self-consciously angsty narrator/blogger Jenna (the terrific Ashley Rickards), who you'd think might be in a happier place having spent the summer cocooned with full-time no-longer-secret boyfriend Matty (Beau Mirchoff). No such luck. With other friends having spent their off time in Europe, hooking up and changing their looks without keeping her in the loop, Jenna worries she's being sidelined, left behind, forgotten. It doesn't help that her sadistic tyrant of a new creative-writing teacher, the heartless Mr. Hart (Anthony Michael Hall), burrows into her fragile psyche with the very first assignment: "Write about your greatest fear." Where to begin?
While I tend to hate everyone that shares my name based on principle alone, there's something I find irresistible about Awkward's Sadie Saxton (Molly Tarlov).
It's surprising that Jenna's nemesis is the one to revolutionize my life-long philosophy. On the surface, Sadie is one of the cruelest characters on TV, but over time we've gotten to see a more vulnerable side to Awkward's resident mean girl. But have these moments been enough to humanize the Queen Bee of Palos Verdes?read more
