“Laguna Beach” Sparked A Crime Wave

So, apparently, Lauren Conrad, Kristin Cavallari and crew didn’t just waste countless hours of our time when we watched them on “Laguna Beach.” They also sparked a crime wave in their hometown. Two assistant professors at Occidental College were interested in the question of whether reality TV attracted delinquency to an area, and decided to use Laguna Beach as a test case. When they analyzed crime data from the town, they found that between the years of 2004 and 2006, when the show was on the air, that crime did indeed increase. There was an average of 50 more non-residential burglaries a month and about one more rape every three months. Meanwhile, in a nearby almost identical town, there was no spike in crime over this time. Also interesting—that it’s non-residential robberies which increased in Laguna rather than break-ins. Their theory? Because the homes shown on TV were generally gated. [Newser, AOL News]

Kristin Cavallari is back! This morning, we learned that the “Laguna Beach” mean girl will be replacing Lauren Conrad as the star of “The Hills.” Dang, we knew her media disappearance over the past few years was too good to be true. The 22-year-old will show up on the May 31st season finale of “The Hills” where she’ll catch the bouquet at Heidi and Spencer’s wedding. Geez, I’d rather catch a live grenade. Keep reading »

Romance On TV: Lauren And Stephen Make Bedroom Eyes, But Not Much Else

Isn’t it funny how some things never change? Stephen Colletti is one of those things. He still chews gum like a lazy, chill surfer bro, he still talks in broken slang, and he still looks like he’s 14. An adorable, sexy 14, but still…he’s 23. Anyway, Stephen tooks LC to dinner and they exchanged a lot of knowing looks, memories of Laguna Beach, and the usual “you’ll always be such a good friend”-nonsense. I have a feeling Stephen needed a job after his meal ticket, Hayden Panettiere, dumped him. But still, he’s fine to look at! Clip above! Keep reading »
