Port Whitney consider on MTV Pull the plug when restarting The hills after only two seasons. Speak EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife37-year-old fashion designer reveals why she’s ready to break up The Hills: A New Beginning and what she thought went down for the network’s third season ending.
“Honestly, I really don’t know what happened in the end,” Whitney began. “We started shooting the second season and then COVID hit it and we took a lot of time off and I had a bit of an angle on it and I was like, ‘I don’t know if this is the case. that I really want to be a big part of.’ Not for a negative reason, but just because it’s no longer a part of my life. “
She went on to say that she was “one step back” from production at the time. “I really don’t know why it was cancelled,” she continued. “I suppose it’s just because enough people aren’t watching it.” However, she asserts that the pandemic has created some difficulties in the production of a TV series. “I think with COVID, it’s hard to shoot a TV show,” explains Whitney. “Going out, meeting, I’m sure filming is really hard.”
While the network brought in many members of OG like Whitney, Brody Jenner, Audrina Patridge, Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Frankie Delgado, Jason Wahler and more, Lauren Conrad, who some consider to be the star of the series, opted out of the reboot, which may make up why it wasn’t a solid hit. Whitney seemed to agree. “I’m sure people really wanted to see all the original cast together and maybe people are missing her,” she told HollywoodLife. “She’s like a mainstay of the show, you know? Therefore.”
Meanwhile, MTV recently announced a reboot of the show, calling this The Hills: The Next Generation, will focus on a new group of youth. Audrina don’t take it lightly that the OG members will not be joining the new series. “Honestly, I can’t believe they’re doing this. We were all shocked,” she said TalkShopLive. “Especially because on The Hills: A New BeginningWe had 14 actors and it was really hard to shoot because there were so many people and so many things going on.”
And Kristin supported Audrina! “It was definitely a slap in the face,” Kristin announced, while co-hosting the show E! News ‘Daily Pop. “I’d be a little sore ass about that, too.” She also said she thinks it’s like “a completely different show” than the original. “If they get a whole new cast, what would you call it The hills? “.
