I have doubts plaguing me about a program that is supposed to be reality. But, as some have rumored and I’m starting to believe, this could be a scripted show.

The Hills has had a pretty good run for the past few years, but it’s all coming crashing down as the drama is worse than an episode of 90210 (old and new). From cat fights to over-bearing relationships, this is way too much and contrived to be reality at least in the world that most of us live in. Makes you wonder if the stars of this show are living in an altered state to get the shots for the show. I find it hard to believe that anything is spontaneous as each actor tells the producers where they will be on any given day and that’s where the shot will be taken, and then there’s the stories of a couple of the characters being seen in retakes – wow, if that’s not as close to scripted as you can get I don’t know what it is.

I think it’s time for the girls of LA to get a sense of themselves and step away from the camera for a bit. Perhaps take a crack at real life and real relationships?
