I just wanted to take a moment to catch people up on a few of Lo Bosworth from MTV’s “The Hills” current projects in case you’re like me and haven’t really checked in on her lately. Book deal and website TheLoDown.com
Audrina Patridge who has added flava to the show with her rocker chick, bad boy dating, insecure self has announced she is leaving after this season airs. We’ll get to catch her on her own show “Sorority Row.”
Just when I was bored out of my mind watching the same round of antics I see every week on MTV’s The Hills, I get to hear that the show must go on. LC will retire as planned and they’re talking about adding Kristen Cavallari (remember her from Laguna Beach?
I caught an inner chuckle the other day at work when we were bonding with our bosses in the kumbaya room (aka. conference room). I’m the only black woman and so I enjoy, from a distance, people awkwardly try to find some kind of way to include me in conversation. Usually, they don’t bother and I find my joy in identifying with something one of the boss people brings up trying to identify with someone else in the room. This time, it was The Hills. The other girl had no clue what “cool” boss who watched Entertainment Tonight the night before studying for this moment was referring to, and I went into this ramble about the whole show, its Laguna Beach roots, Justin Bobby, yadda, yadda, yadda…AND I would be remiss to not make eye contact with the boss man and say that I guess he figured her wrong and me wrong. He had that squirmish, awkward, tall white man entitled to superiority gone defunct moment. So maybe it wasn’t an inner chuckle, rather an inner belly laugh. It’s amazing what you learn when you just talk to someone and leave your biases behind. All of his research trying to identify with the women was flawed. He didn’t bank on the black girl factor in the room.
