Run From The Hills

As a loyal fan of the former Laguna Beach crew, I was right smack in front of my TV when the clock struck 10 for the premiere of MTV's The Hills: Season 3 this week. But despite all the Heidi-LC-Audrina-Brody-Spencer drama that is sure to ensue this season, I realized I just didn't care anymore. For starters, the show appears to be completely scripted now.

But I guess if my life were a scripted soap opera, I'd probably ruin it, too, and then cry in shock afterward. Go figure.
