When MTV viewers headed for The Hills last year, one familiar face wasn't amongst the cast.
While Kristin Cavallari allows that a cameo on MTV's reboot of their mid-aughts reality phenom would be a fun exercise in nostalgia, anything more would be a bit much. "It would have been tough to kind of go back to that whole lifestyle and all of that drama," she admitted to Us Weekly last year. "I talked to Audrina [Patridge], she said it's been hard for her. So, yeah, I'm kind of happy that I kind of don't have to go back to that."
These days, the closest the teenage reality star turned actress turned shoe designer, cookbook author, store owner and lifestyle mogul gets to the 22-year-old schemer that eagerly signed on to fill the series' bad girl role is watching the oft liquor-fueled histrionics that occur amongst the young staffers that make up her thriving Uncommon James brand and the cast of her E! series Very Cavallari. (Well, that and the time she overdid it on the tequila shots during a company trip to Florida.)
Remarking on a dustup between two employees on a season 2 episode of her show, on which she serves as star and executive producer, she observed to stylist Kelly Henderson, "This is s--t I did when I was 22. You've got to grow the f--k up."
