Since I’m sad and don’t have cable, I thought I’d go back to learning life lessons from Lauren Conrad (Is it sad that I still kind of want to be her? I think I felt this way after seeing her wedding photo. After a bunch of shitty boyfriends, you can find love! That sounded super cheesy. I found Jason to be her most questionable choice). Is it sad that at age 28 I can kind of but not really relate to a 20-year-old’s life?? Not sure if I’m that immature or if she moved at an accelerated pace (I feel like those girls were constantly on a husband hunt).
Season 2 of The Hills seemed to be the most dramatic or a good place to start because that’s when Spencer and Brody entered the picture. Remember when Jen Bunney hooked up with Brody after Lauren had been hooking up with/crushing on him? How she said she had never been so betrayed by best friends?
While I find most of LC’s advice to be true (Heidi, you’ve chosen. Having a few good friends over a bunch of fake ones. Sometimes doing nothing is just as bad. Admit you did something shady, etc etc), I disagree with her reaction, which was to take all of her anger out on Jen Bunney and give Brody a pass. He didn’t get in trouble at all, he attended her birthday, and they went out for breakfast the next day! I feel like when stuff like this happens, it’s always woman vs woman when I believe that the guy is also to blame (It takes two to tango, cliche lovers). He just wanted to get some ass and he didn’t care from who and didn’t care that it could potentially destroy a friendship. There’s too much woman on woman hate when you know it should be directed at male sociopaths.
I think I mentioned it before, but something like this recently happened to me and I cut off ties with both of them (Which is actually easier said than done) because I think we are the company that we keep and people who do that to you were never really your friends anyway. Or see how Ludacris describes this in his instagram (You should follow him, btw. It’s entertaining). I feel like living on my own in a new city alone has really made me become hypersensitive about friendships. Unfortunately, a lot of people are selfish or have sociopath tendencies (I’ve recently become obsessed with learning about sociopaths because I feel like 50% of the male population are sociopaths…). I feel like I’ve learned the hard way that you can’t be so trusting, open, and kind in this world because sometimes you just get burned.
In other news, I feel like LC had a lot of friendship fights, which I don’t think is normal for a regular person. Not my problem. Do you think she made up with Jen Bunney? NMP.
I love the part where LC calls Jen Bunney a bitch.
