In what’s becoming a paradigm shift in which “reality” stars make more than actresses, the Hills is back and the stars are bank. How much do they make? Lauren Conrad was making $125,000 an episode before she left, and she had a stipulation in her contract that no other star’s salary could match hers. Audrina, Lo, and Heidi make $100,000. Spencer makes $65K and Brody Jenner makes $45k. (In comparison, the stars of The Real Housewives series receive a reported $30,000 a show.) You have to read the whole article that describes how much they make for appearances, etc. It’s crazier than Speidi.

Need a little lift? Try the LC French braid in your hair. We love braids (although eMum was probably right in not allowing elaney to have her hair braided into lots of little braids as a little girl), and we believe that a nice French Braid can be a very elegant look. LC knows how to work a braid – check out a video on how to do it here.

Sure, it’s a personal favorite around here, but it’s also universally agreed upon as one of the cutest hairstyles for summer. Here are some options for ways to pull off The Bob: Lauren Conrad’s simple-subtle, Nicole Richie’s edgy ingenue, and Katie Holmes’ super chic short with attitude.
Which one do you like the best?

After many, many hours watching Lauren Conrad evolve from a scowling high schooler with huge white sungless to a scowling twenty something with huge Gucci sunglasses, we’ve decided to say goodbye to The Hills a few episodes early. For years, we’ve defended the honor of LC, Brody, and the gang. When others complained “it’s not unscripted,” we said “who cares?” When others complained about Spencer and Heidi, we said, “nobody’s perfect – or has perfect facial hair” but the past few episodes have just been so boring and lame, that Monday nights are making us lament The Bachelor and pull out our library books. We value eloyalty at elaney, but if you can’t keep elaney interested in beautiful people in LA on a reality show – you may have a problem. Sayonara old friends! What to you think – over it?

We almost feel like this is a foolish question, because the answer is soooo obvious. We begin with the theme song. The “Bright Lights” ditty from The City makes us want to get up and dance! While, if we have to hear “Unwritten” from The Hills once more time, we might start crying. Whitney opens the door to the details of her personal life (major bonus), while Lauren doesn’t even allow her boyfriend to be on the show (um, where’s the real in reality these days?). Finally, there is our man Jay. We don’t think we have to tell you that he’s quite a step up from Jason Wahler.
Victor?? The City!

You hear the word updo, and you think of that very questionable choice made circa sophomore year to get an updo with ringlets before homecoming. Oh you thought you looked hot. But as we like to say, the emperor had a new updo. However, we think a soft low bun is the most underrated hair style out there. Loose buns are so feminine, yet still feel natural and easy. Plus, it’s nice to look different when you are getting dressed up for something. Next time, consider mixing it up by putting it up.
