Wait - you mean this show isn't 100% real?

I missed Monday's episode of The Hills, but apparently one of the storylines followed Heidi's 21st birthday. If you recall from last season, she spent her 20th birthday in an Audrey Hepburn 'do complete with tiara clubbin' with friends (and avoiding Audrina). This year, she got all dolled up for an intimate dinner with just her and Spencer. And it sounded like she spent most of the dinner convincing herself that she's having a good time.

This 21st birthday rocks.  Really.

But when in *reality*, she had a rockin' 21st birthday celebration in Vegas. She even performed!!!

So what do you guys think? I personally enjoyed Spencer's "raise the roof" background support. I know sound quality isn't great, but do you think she was singing at all? Looked like major lip sync action to me. Also, I hope she works out her choreography or performance movements or something... looks kind of silly to me. :)

Anyway, I guess the show producers are completely avoiding Heidi's aspiring singing career and Lauren's fashion line when editing for this show. It's interesting. It seems like Lauren is still working as an intern at Teen Vogue while simultaneously launching her own fashion line. I mean, it's not all fake - she does appear to be doing some grunt work like when she had to help out with the Marc Jacobs crew in NYC. And Heidi would have to balance her time between doing PR in cute pencil skirts at Bolthouse while recording her tunes.

And how about the other people/cast? Like when they hired Elodie's replacement at Bolthouse. Did they really interview real PR people and then say oh, yeah, by the way - you could potentially be a cast member in an MTV drama? Or did MTV people just cast the person themselves?

I'll stop thinking about it now. It'll probably just make my head explode.

2 fascinating comment(s) from my friends:

I think I saw reports that Heidi's job isn't even real. She actually isn't employed there - she just pops in to tape stuff. Who knows- I just want to smack them.

The Hills is no Real World. And BTW, Real World Sydney KICKS ASS.
