Running for six seasons the “reality” television show centred on former Laguna Beach star Lauren Conrad who moved to Los Angeles to study fashion, complete internships where she oddly always seemed to be standing forlornly next to clothes racks, and have smoldering bitch fights with her frenemies in sticky-looking nightclubs.
Six seasons and thirteen years on, The Hills remains truly iconic.
So much so that a reboot, The Hills: New Beginnings, is airing tomorrow.

But as we anticipate the massacre that the reboot may very well be, it’s time to reflect on the wackiest and most unpredictable moments and storylines from the original show.
Let’s start with the storyline you’re all thinking about.
The finale expose.
Oh. Em. Gee.
We kind of suspected that The Hills might be scripted all along, but the series finale blew that entire ‘reality’ idea out of the water.
The final moment of the show featured stars Kristin Cavallari and Brody Jenner saying goodbye in front of the Hollywood sign. It was all very romantic and bittersweet…. until the camera panned out to reveal they were actually filming in a studio lot and Kristin dissolved into laughter.
The fourth wall came crashing down and fans were left wondering what the hell was going on with the entire show.
The mascara tear.
It happened in season four, but the iconic mascara tear from Lauren Conrad has lasted the ages.
So much so that it has been used in many a group chat when a friend is being… well… dramatic.
But why was she actually crying?
It was all due to the fact that she was having roommate drama with castmate Audrina Patridge over the fact that Audrina had forsaken her friends f0r an adult man named Justin Bobby.
It was all just as ridiculous as it sounds.
Spencer and Heidi’s wedding.
This was shocking in a completely different way.
We just DIDN’T believe, after all the fights and the family feuds, that Heidi and Spencer were ever going to make it down the aisle.
