The news was finally out last week, with The Hills cast finally confirming what everyone was hoping - the show's coming back! After months of speculation, major cast members reunited on the VMAs red carpet to confirm the news. While we eagerly wait for our favourites to reunite on The Hills: New Beginnings, let's have a look at where they've been since we sadly said goodbye to the show.
We followed Lauren Conrad as she worked her way up in the fashion industry on The Hills. She has come a long away since her Teen Vogue days, launching her own line Paper Crown and publishing a New York Times best-seller novel L.A. Candy. Currently she runs a lifestyle website and a successful line with Kohl's, LC by Lauren Conrad. She's happily married to guitarist William Tell and they welcomed their first child Liam James in 2017.
Heidi Montag was Lauren Conrad's BFF and roommate but the friendship soon deteriorated when she started dating Spencer Pratt. Montag and Pratt tied the knot in a ceremony that was filmed for the reality show. In 2010, she famously had ten cosmetic surgery procedures in one day. After The Hills wrapped up, Montag released an unsuccessful music album and appeared on the British version of Celebrity Big Brother in 2013 and 2017. The couple welcomed baby Gunner Stone in 2017.
Audrina Patridge joined the show in season one where we got to watch her on-again, off-again relationship with Justin 'Bobby' Brescia. After the season finale of The Hills, she got her own reality spin-off Audrina which lasted for one season. She landed a few acting gigs and hosted the NBC travel series 1st Look for two years. In 2016, she married professional BMX rider Corey Bohan and they welcomed a daughter in the same year. Last year, she filed for divorce and a restraining order against Bohan. Not only is she reuniting with the cast for the re-boot, but has also reunited with former flame Ryan Cabrera.
We were introduced to the bubbly Whitney Port in the first season working alongside Lauren Conrad at Teen Vogue. After season four finished, Port made the move to New York and starred in her own MTV spin-off The City for two seasons. The spin-off documented her time working for Diane von Furstenberg and ELLE magazine (and introduced us to Olivia Palermo). In 2009, she launched her own line, Whitney Eve. She is married to producer Tim Rosenman and they welcomed baby boy Sonny last year which led to the launch of Port's YouTube channel, 'I Love My Baby, But...'
Dubbed the villain of The Hills, Spencer Pratt was the antagonist to Lauren Conrad and sparked the demise of her friendship with Heidi Montag. Blowing through a $10 million fortune, Pratt filed for bankruptcy in 2010. These days, you can find Pratt proclaiming his love of crystals on Instagram and Snapchat - he's even created his own crystal kit.
Since The Hills wrapped up filming, Bosworth has kept herself busy with a slew of projects including a lifestyle website The LoDown, YouTube channel and a podcast "Lady Lovin'". She is also founder and CEO of Love Wellness Co, an all natural feminine hygiene company. Unfortunately she won't make a return for the re-boot, stating on her podcast, "I don't want any association with any of those people."
Brody Jenner appeared on the reality show as Spencer's friend but later became Lauren's love interest. The son of Caitlyn Jenner, he continued to make several reality TV appearances on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, I Am Cait and had his own short-lived talk show Sex With Brody. This year, he married blogger Kaitlynn Carter and made headlines for slamming his father for not attending the wedding.
We first saw Kristin Cavallari on Laguna Beach and again as Lauren's frenemy on The Hills. After the reality show finished, Cavallari did a few acting gigs and appeared on the 2011 season of Dancing With The Stars. This year, she headed back to reality TV with her own E! show Very Cavallari chronicling her life with NFL-player husband, Jay Cutler, with whom she has three children. She currently runs a fashion and lifestyle brand Uncommon James.
Stephanie Pratt was introduced as Spencer's sister in the third season and attended the same college as Lauren Conrad. She joined Made in Chelsea in 2013 as Spencer Matthew's girlfriend and has appeared on UK's Celebrity Big Brother.
Justin 'Bobby' Brescia
One of the major storylines on the show was the turbulent relationship between hairdresser Justin 'Bobby' Brescia and Audrina Patridge. He had bad blood with Lauren Conrad and became the subject of the iconic quip, "homeboy wore combat boots to the beach". These days, Brescia is a musician and has his own hair care and styling line called BRUSH by Justin Bobby Brescia.
Also a former Laguna Beach member, Jason joined The Hills as Lauren's boyfriend. The show documented the volatile relationship between the two and when Lauren made the infamous ill-fated decision to choose him over Paris. He has been open with his alcohol addiction which resulted in six drinking-related arrests and an appearance on Celebrity Rehab. He is married to model Ashley Slack and they welcomed baby Delilah Ray in 2017.
He was known as Brody Jenner's sidekick on The Hills regularly appearing on their night outs. Since filming of the show wrapped, he has married Jennifer Acosta in 2013 in a ceremony with Lauren Conrad and Brody Jenner as guests. The couple welcomed a baby girl in 2014.
