No stranger to drama, Kristin is already being targeted by Team Lauren. Let’s start with Erin Lucas, Whitney Port's BFF on sister show The City.
“Kristin’s got really big shoes to fill and an even bigger ego, so I can see disaster coming from a mile away,” Erin tells us. “Lauren is such a genuine girl. She wears her heart on her sleeve, and she was real with the whole thing. I don’t think Kristin is on that level."
That's not all Erin has to say. Keep reading for more, plus find out which Hills star says she's "terrified" about Kristin's arrival...
“Wasn’t Kristin like all gung-ho about being an actress?” Erin hissed. “I mean, I read interviews last week, for that matter, where she’s quoted making fun of the show and trashing it and saying she would never be a part of it. So to go from trashing a show, to go on and replace the girl you f--ked over in high school…I don’t see it going anywhere pretty.”
Hills costar Stephanie Pratt isn’t too thrilled either. “I'm terrified,” she told reporters last night at Maxim’s Hot 100 party. “She’s no Lauren Conrad. She loves drama and catfights. I saw her on Laguna Beach.”
She added, “I don't know why it's still called The Hills. It belongs to Lauren.”
Kristin, on the other hand, believes she’s a perfect fit for the show. "Drama sells, [and] I think that’s why they’re bringing me in, because I know what works,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “I’m a completely different person than Lauren. I have a lot more energy. I’m more outgoing. I’m a little more spontaneous.”
Kristin and Lauren notoriously fought over Stephen Colletti’s affections during the first two seasons of MTV’s reality series Laguna Beach. They eventually reconciled after the series was canceled.
