Romance On TV: “The Hills” Is Back And More Scripted Than Ever

By now, it’s pretty much accepted that The Hills is, to a certain degree, scripted. According to a recent article in Entertainment Weekly, parts of scenes are re-shot (for example, if the girls enter a nightclub and a crowd of people get in the way of the camera, the producers will have the girls enter again), Lauren Conrad and crew let the producers know in advance what their plans are (partially so that they can get approval to shoot at any venues and also so that they can devise a “storyline” for the week), and the producers also have no control over whether the girls play any of their conversations or actions up for the cameras.

    Crushes As Foreplay

    Confession: I’m having a secret affair with my 21-year old Irish doorman. It’s such a secret, not even HE knows. The other night, when my fiancé was out, my doorman – I don’t even know his name – came upstairs to my apartment to replace three light bulbs. As he stood on the ladder, screwing in those bulbs, telling me all about going to school in Dublin and spending the summer in New York, I felt enormously guilty. My fiancé wasn’t home and this attractive, foreign, younger man was doing menial labor in my apartment, steps away from my bedroom. It felt kind of like cheating, even though it was far from it in actuality, and cheating in actuality is something I would never, ever, ever do. Keep reading »

    Craves We Regret: Nail Pens, Target Dresses, & Hooker Heels

    We recommend a lot of rad products, clothing designers, and crave-able items on The Frisky. Occasionally, however, we discover that an item was not worthy of our desire or endorsement and we want to take it back. After finally sampling a few of these goods ourselves, we’re totally not craving:
    1. Sally Hansen Nail Pen: I finally tried this bad boy and discovered two things: A) A nail PEN is a really good idea and definitely makes polish application easier, but B) the actual polish colors available are heinous (I made the mistake of going for a iridescent opal which was trés old lady), they apply very thin and watery, and they dry extremely matte.

    Crave: Big Buddha Tyler Tote

    You wouldn’t think an episode of A&E’s Intervention would be the place to get style inspiration, but then, there’s never been an Allison. The subject of the show’s recent “huffing” episode carried a seriously awesome bag, and we’ve found it! The tote comes in red, gunmetal, black, and camel. So now you too can emulate the style of a woman who inhales computer duster, without, you know, actually turning your brain into JELL-O. [Amazon.com] Keep reading »
