This week, television surprised and moved us. Meredith Baxter announced that she is gay. Sons of Anarchy shifted its focus abruptly from revenge to deep sorrow. And House admitted that without Wilson, he is truly alone. Also: Nathan Petrelli is dead and the ladies of Eastwick are witches. (OK, so not everything was a surprise.) Welcome to the Coolest Moments (aka Top Moments): Shock and Awwww Edition.
The Hills - Kristin Cavallari, Justin Bobby
Summer is over, and it's time for Kristin to up and leave her Malibu pad. But will Justin Bobby be joining her on the next venture? Let's find out.
Everything was perfect in Vegas, but Kristin tells Stacie that vacation is never the way it's going to be. She's still worried that she'll get hurt by Justin, but Stacie urges her to give him a chance. But when Justin comes over, Kristin suggests that they cool off for a bit and throws the old "I don't want a boyfriend" excuse at him again.
Okay, I have to preface this recap with the fact that I've always loved Laguna Beach and The Hills but even I'm getting bored this season. Can we please move on from the never-ending love triangles/quadrangles, or whatever they are now?
This week is all about the K-Cav/Brody/Jayde saga. First, the newly shagtastic Brody (and by that I mean facial hair, people) and Kristin meet for lunch. They talk about some of the "crazy times" they had while dating, and Kristin mentions that Jayde had asked her to sit down and chat. Brody is not a fan of the idea, but Kristin claims Jayde just wants Brody to be happy so she has to respect his ex for wanting to set things straight.
Kristin and Brody
With Jayde out of the picture, Kristin is moving in on her former beau Brody. The two go to dinner and Kristin coyly asks Brody what he "can and can't do" on his break with Jayde. The date must have gone well because soon Brody is taking Kristin by his mom's house where the two ladies gush over how things used to be, and how cute K. and B. are together.
The time has come for Justin Bobby to get the old heave-ho — especially now that Kristin and Brody are becoming more cozy. The two go for a little catch-up stroll on the beach and Brody says that he and his Playmate girlfriend Jayde are on a break because although he loves the girl, he doesn't want to fight anymore.
There must be a party every week on The Hills, and this time it's Kristin's turn. So what drama transpired and how awful were Holly Montag's drunken dance moves? Keep reading to find out.
Kristin hosts a Malibu beach party that creates even more of a rift in Brody and Jayde's relationships. After fighting at his birthday, Brody and his g.f. make up over lunch but disagree about attending his ex's bash. Jayde doesn't want to go, but Brody is adamant. "You have an amazing time," Jayde says sarcastically.
After being stood up by Justin Bobby, Kristin decides to take a little break from L.A. So where does she go? Home to Laguna Beach, of course. Kristin arrives and shares some wine with her dad, who asks if she's seen Steven or Lauren lately. Um, have you not seen the last four seasons of The Hills, mister? Daddy Cav also hilariously asks if Brody (Kristin's ex) is still in love with himself. Kristin then tells her dad and stepmom about the new guy she's dating —Justin Bobby— and that she took a ride on his motorcycle. I think Dennis knows what she really means here. He's cool but a flake, she says, and not someone you'd necessarily take home to pops. Good thing it's "nothing serious."
It's the Brode-ster's birthday and his girlfriend Jayde is throwing a surprise party. Is there drama? But of course. This is The Hills, people.
Kristin takes her new BFF Stacie to the Hustler store to buy some birthday "fun" for Brody and Jayde. Kristin is a little bummed that she didn't get to have a spicy relationship with Brody as she tells Stacie their love-life was "very vanilla, if you will."
