The Hills

You'll only find this clip funny if you're willing to admit that you watch The Hills. Since I’m brutally honest about my recent liking of worthless TV, I can honestly say I thought this clip was so funny, that I watched it twice. Okay – three times. (Maybe Four)

I’ll be the first one to admit that this show is ridiculously lame yet I find myself a tad bit (read: very much) obsessed with it. I even watched the two-hour special this weekend, recapping Lauren Conrad’s journey from Laguna Beach to her current stardom in LA. It was two hours I'll never get back, but I HAD to see it. What is wrong with me? This show is stupid and I'm REALLY busy. But there are so many people I know that feel the same way, yet find themselves glued to the TV on Monday evenings.

There is something about the show worse than Spencer, worse than the poor acting and that's the grammar used by the show's stars/actors/pawns. I make grammatical errors often, but I get a pass because I'm not on TV. I thought Lo’s constant use of the word “romantical” in an episode a few weeks back was the worst thing I’ve ever heard. That was until I caught an exchange in the 2-hour time suck show between LC and Lisa Love, Editor-in-Chief of TEEN VOGUE, during her initial interview at TEEN VOGUE. This made my skin crawl:

Lisa Love: This job requires lots of writing.
LC: I love to write.
Lisa Love: Do you write good?
Weezie: (hits pause on DVR and screams at TV)Do you write WELL????
Seriously, Lisa Love – you are an editor of a magazine!!!!

Anyway, this just proves that I should be spending my time doing something productive instead of watching this half-scripted reality show. But I can't help it. I'm sucked in. And I can't wait to get home to watch the season finale!

Case in point: This was in a recent email from my very highly-educated BFF

"OMG. The Hills? Did you watch? Spencer and Heidi are the worst
actors or are not even dating for reals. Feel free to discuss."
