They put the most irrelevant characters on the show! They didn’t put the main person with the sweet smile I miss LC! And Whitney! Wtf?! She started the show! Heidi is just doing the show to get more plastic surgery and spencer is doing it so his lazy ass doesn’t have to work still. Audrina is so boring! And bitchy! Justin bobby?! DOUCHE! Stephanie? SNAKE! Mischa? Idk why she’s on here? Brody doing it cause the karjenners don’t acknowledge him and he wants to be known. He’s the only one I feel for. But the rest of the cast BOOOO! Bring LC AND WHITNEY BACK THEY MADE THIS BIG NOW THE SNAKES TAKING OVER!? No!!!!! Won’t be watching anymore. BORING!!!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This predictable reality series features B-list reality stars and former celebrities supposedly trying to revitalize the old and strained connections between them. Many admit, albeit subtly, that they're trying to make entertainment career comebacks, some after well-publicized falls from grace. Meanwhile, despite starting successful businesses, getting married, and having children, few seem to have outgrown their narcissism. As a result, The Hills: New Beginnings feels like a tired extension of the old version, with some older, but not necessarily wiser, people.
