Something relating to MTV proper...imagine that!
I cannot tell you how long and eagerly I've waited for this night to arrive. I confess to being mildly obsessed with "The Hills" but I have not been able to watch the season premiere yet. And now—I mean, after I post this—I'm going to finally get to watch it. You see, since I recorded it there have been all manner of life interruptions—sick relative, sick baby, busted dishwasher...and, well, a husband who refuses to watch it.
I know a lot of people think the show's totally fake and vapid but I have to say that I'm continually impressed by Lauren Conrad. She makes mistakes but learns from them; she's slyly funny; she has awesome facial expressions; she's just, well, cool. The other person I dig is Heidi's mom. [Okay, so I already hit play!] I find it hard to believe that that woman--so seemingly normal!--actually raised Heidi and am generally fascinated by how a person like Heidi—just so completely sure of herself and entirely, I don't know, crazy?—comes into being. And then finds someone equally crazy to go out with!
And now some French hottie is taking Lauren to the Eiffel Tower. Ah, to be young and in Paris! I'm actually jealous of L.C.! And fear her little trick with her ball gown is going to end in disaster. Why, Lauren, why????
Alright, enough. OH! But one quick tidbit...Ellegirl.com is going to be giving away 5 copies of "What Happens Here" closer to the release date. Stay tuned for details!
