The Hills Is 10! Where Are Justin Bobby, Lo, Jason And The Other Cast Members Now?
The Debrief: Where are the cast of the original, and the best reality TV show now?
The Hills, the show that gave us so much, and took so many hours of our lives, turns ten on May 31st. Obviously we know how some of the main characters are getting on but what about the rest? Let's take a look.
Mate. JB is still an uber babe. Sadly though, he still seems pretty far from being the settling down type. Now he's in a rock band called Bobby Rock with his pal and they're currently on tour round the US in a car that looks like a beige version of the original Ghostbusters car. If you happen to be in Chicago on the 4th of June, head down to the Elbo Rooms where you can pick up a ticket to see 'Bobby Rock (Featuring Justin Bobby From The Hills)' support a band called Stereospeak for the princely sum of $9.
Like most of the female cast of The Hills, Audrina is now a lifestyle blogger with a blog called The Inside Out. In it she shares tips on stuff like how to have a girls' night in; 'You may have heard of a Girl’s Night Out, but there is nothing I love more than a Girl’s Night In (GNI)… Sorry Corey!'
She is also about to get married (her most recent trip to scout out wedding locations in Hawaii was scuppered by the paparazzi) to this Corey dude who has definite Justin Bobby vibes. She's super duper pregnant too.
Oh and her and Corey REALLY LOVE food delivery service Hello Fresh judging from how often it shows up on her Instagram. Although like, they might be getting paid for it?
Lo is also a lifestyle blogger (you'll notice it's something of a trend amongst these ladies). Her blog is called The Lo Down and is actually kind of fun. Also she's got a podcast called Lady Lovin' which also seems pretty cool. Recently they've interviewed a lady butcher, spoken to a colonic guru, and gone in depth on mindfullness. Plus, she's got a babe of a dog.
10/10 Lo. Nice work.
Whitney is like, also a blogger. And a TV personality. And is currently 'building her women's lifestyle brand'. Basically, I'm not really sure what she does. Except fail to pronounce Swarovski correctly. She's got a cute husband called Tim and is currently flogging a diffusion line of Wella hair products.
I don't think I ever fulled appreciated how unbelievably attractive Brody Jenner was at the time The Hills was on. Maybe he's blossomed. I don't know. Either way, his Instagram is bonafide mega babe-dom. Especially when you take into account his so-pretty-it-hurts girlfriend Kaitlynn. Brody is still related to the Kardashians in case you had forgotten although he reportedly refuted this claim at Coachella when he screamed at a reporter 'THEY'RE NOT MY FUCKING FAMILY'.
Othey than that he seems pretty happy.
Can we take a moment to fully appreciate how bonkers it is that Stephanie Pratt is now in a television show in the UK with people who grew up watching her on The Hills? The streams have crossed, the fourth wall is well and truly down. Reality TV is a sham. Anyways - as you well know she's struggling a little in Made in Chelsea at the moment on account the fact that of she took everyone to the Maldives and then they all decided to hate her.
The older I get, the more I think Spencer knew what he was doing all along. With the crystals, the murals, the bonkers controlling behaviour.... Now, him and Heidi seem super happy. They were obviously on UK Big Brother and were kind of OK. Spencer himself is pretty funny and articulate on Twitter when it comes to dissecting celebrity news.
Here's a brief extract from InStyle's The Hills, An Oral History where Spencer recounts his everyday life now.
'Every morning, I make two 32 gram shots of Zip Zinger espresso. I used to have a breakfast burrito every day, but now I have an apple with almond butter, because I want to be model skinny. Then I usually do jujitsu for about an hour and a half, then I eat salmon. Then I go home, ice my old man knees, watch Apple TV, and tweet, because I don’t have any actual friends to talk to. Then Heidi and I will either get sushi or Mexican food and I’ll have some tequila on ice. I keep that in rotation.'

Heidi, again, seems pretty happy. According to her she's 'a domestic goddess. I cook and I clean and I deal with four dogs. Spencer and I are going to try to have a baby next year, too. I’m ready to be a mom—I think it’s going to be such a great chapter. Kristin seems like such an awesome mom, and I think Audrina will be such a great mom. I guess we need to have the new Hills as moms! '
The guy that Lauren 'didn't go to Paris' for. Jason left the show after battling an alcohol and cocaine addiction which led to several arrests then, seven years ago, he tried to commit suicide. Luckily he got his life back on track and has been sober since 2010. He's now married to a lady called Ashley and the two look super happy. Last year he opened a sober living house for men in Laguna Beach called Widespread Recovery.
Nice work Jason.
Brent Bolthouse was the events promoter that Heidi used to 'work' for. Which meant that she stood on the door in a nice dress and let her friends into star-studded events where people wore terrible clothes. Brent was kind of a douche. His Instagram tagline now is 'Capturing life with my Leica Monochrome is my passion' and by all accounts he's still wildly successful. He started the 'premier afterparty' for Coachella which has been attended by Leonardo DiCaprio and Justin Bieber. He also owns an annoyingly nice looking restaurant in Santa Monica.
Just the scariest lady that's ever worked in fashion ever. Kelly Cutrone is what I thought everyone in fashion would be like. Turns out she's just kind of a one off. Since People's Revolution in The Hills and then The City, Kelly Cutrone was a judge on America's Next Top Model (and was SO GREAT) and apparently is working on a film about the fashion industry. Now that ought to be entertaining...
PS: Check out this excellent line from her Wikipedia page: 'On September 11, 2002, People's Revolution broke the record for the most shows produced on one day during New York Fashion Week—five—mainly because they were the only company willing to produce shows on the first anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.'
Jen Bunney was one of the people that had to sit there while the main cast members droned on about whatever was happening with their relationships and nod and look interested. Jen Bunney did a great job at that. She was one of the show's hidden gems. Now Jen Bunney is married and is director of a healthcare company that provides care for people who are 'sick and old in vulnerable populations'.
Told you she was one of the good ones.
Frankie was a male Jen Bunney. Everytime Brody was like, mad, or like partying, Frankie was there. Frankie liked to party. Now Frankie has the MOST adorable kid and wife. He looks like he still goes out and has fun too. Also, guess how old Frankie is?
Lauren wins the prize for being the shiniest, most polished lifestyle blogger in the whole wide world. She is literally the embodiment of Pinterest. It's worked for her though. She's worth an estimated $25 million, has released nine books, had various fashion and accessory lines and recently got married. Nailed it.
Heidi's sister Holly looks like she has a lovely live. She's named her blog jokingly Heidi 'Momtag' because it's about learning to be a 'mom'.
