“Hun vil altid være kendt som den pige, der ikke tog til Paris.” Til thIt’s the day, it stays one of the most cutthroat lines nogensinde leveret på tv. The recipient was of course Lauren Conrad, so a wide-eyed twentysomething, who recently had a flight to Laguna Beach, California, bubble where she was raised and prominent at MTVs Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County-For Los Angeles for at forfølge en karriere i mode.
Den 31. maj 2006-10 år siden denne måned-Bakkerne premiered, tiltrækker millioner af seere hver uge med sine tårtefyldte kat kampe og episke disses (“Han er en sucky person!”). For those who had dreaming about working on a blank sheet, it also offered a rare inside view of an industry once once closely guarded from the public, years before apps like Instagram and Snapchat came together and democratized everything.
Showet drejede sig om Conrad, Carrie Bradshaw-esque center karakter og hendes liv i byen Angels som deltidstuderende på Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM), praktikant på Teen Vogue og senere, Kelly Cutrone s PR hurtigt folkens revolution. Mænd på en ung og attraktiv pige om byen betydede også rigelig drama, der hovedsagelig involverede en meget offentlig udfald med sin bedste ven, Heidi Montag, og numrene Spencer Pratt, også Speidi, de bosiddende skurke.
Then there were casts of supportive players, hand picked by the show’s visionary creator, Adam DiVello. Conrads crew var sammensat af Audrina Patridge, barndomskvinde Lo Bosworth, og senere, i et ironisk twist af begivenheder, Stephanie Pratt, søster til hendes bue nemesis Spencer. Whitney Port spillede en fortrolige på arbejde; Brody Jenner var en kærlighed interesse; og Justin Brescia var godt, Justin Bobby. Modeindustrien inventar Cutrone og VogueS Lisa Love starede som Conrad og Port’s bosser. Montag er overlegen var Hollywood natteliv mogul Brent Bolthouse.
Bakkerne var reality tv på sit højeste punkt før Holde op med Kardashians lokket publikum med sine ikke-traditionelle familieværdier og Jersey Shore ramte under bæltet med alkohol-brændte shenanigans. I det væsentlige var det en klassisk kommende aldershistorie, som fremgår af teksterne til den infektiøse Natasha Bedingfield, der sang “Unwritten”, som memorært spillede under åbnings kreditterne. Til ære for showets 10 års jubilæum nåede vi ud til the whole Hills cast, samt nogle af besætningen, for et nostalgisk blik tilbage.
MONTERING AF DEN PERFEKTE CAST
Mens nogle af de kaste medlemmer tidligere stjernede på Laguna Beach, Det var op til DiVello at finde andre indfødte Angelenos for at slutte sig til Conrads indre cirkel. Indtast Patridge, Brescia, Port, Jenner og Pratts.
Adam DiVello (Skaber): I first met Lauren when we stood for Laguna Beach. I walked through the parking lot at her high school, and she and Lo screamed because they had switched off the car alarm. It is rare for a gymnasieelever to be so expressive with their feelings. Hun lignede den ultimative Californien-pige.
Lauren Conrad: Vi lavede en scene! Jeg tror, at vi havde matchende Juicy velour tracksuits.
Lo Bosworth: We were actually ditching class and trying to be as impeccable as possible. Sikkert vi blev bemærket straks.
Adam DiVello: Efter til sæsoner af Laguna Beach, Lauren fortalte mig, at hun skulle moderskole i Los Angeles. It looks like the perfect opportunity to follow her in the next phase of her journey. Jeg ønskede at gøre et reality-tv Melrose Place, hvor tegn beskæftiger sig med arbejde og relationer i en ny by. It was meant to be very eye-catching for young girls dreaming of working in fashion.
Lauren Conrad: I first introduced because I wanted the pay slip. I went to college, my parents were not financially support me anymore, and I had used all of my Laguna Penge. Så da Adam kom til mig og sagde: “Vil du lave dette show?” Jeg var som, “Yep!”
Heidi Montag: Laguna Beach Jeg havde ikke engang luftet da jeg mødte Lauren ved Academy of Art University i San Francisco. Mænd der var ryktet om at en pige fra et MTV-show skulle være der. I thought it would be Made: Jeg vil gerne være en Prom Queen. Vi blev øjeblikkeligt bedste venner. Den følgende sommer blev jeg hos sin familie for a couple of weeks before moving to L.A. and filmed some episodes of the show. Then she told me that she would do a spin-off and asked if I would be on it. Jeg var som “Heck yeah!” It was difficult to understand how big it really was.
Whitney Port: Jeg var ved at starte skole på USC da jeg hørte det Teen Vogue ledte efter praktikanter. De sagde: “Vi vil have den, der er hende, for at være okay med kameraer, for MTV skal begynde at filme et tv-show i dokumentarstil.” Then I showed myself for my interview on the camera and sat in the lobby, and that was when Lauren went in. Jeg var ligesom, “okay. I know what I’m doing here now. “
Lauren Conrad: Det var et underligt øjeblik for mig. until Bakkerne, I knew everyone I filmed with. As I walked into the waiting room and sat down, I noticed that everyone was met. Det var da jeg begyndte at indse, at dette var en anden slags show.
Adam DiVello: We knew, as soon as we saw Whitney, that she would be the perfect confidential for Lauren at work. Hun var yderst ægte på kameraet. Der var intet prætentiøst om hende. Then I went to Lauren and Heidi’s apartment for scouting on the spot, and I saw Audrina lounger by the pool in a bikini.
Audrina Patridge: Det var den ultimative drømmescenarie. Han var en samlet Hollywood-producent type: “Du er så smuk! Hvad gør du?” I told him that I worked in a photo studio and came to L.A. to act and model. I was not allowed to go to the pool for two weeks because he did not want me to meet Lauren or Heidi off-camera.
Justin Brescia: When I met Audrina, I worked on a Madonna music video with a hairdressing team, and that happened to Quixote Studios, where she was a receptionist.
Audrina Patridge: Han fortsatte med at gå foran mit skrivebord og spurgte om jeg kunne få ham til ting … magasiner, farvande. Vi var lige begyndt på film showet, so I asked if he wanted to cut my hair on the camera.
Justin Brescia: Jeg tror, jeg har pålagt hende! Then they called me and asked me to film again. Jeg var som “Hvem, hvem, hvem.” So I took one step back. At that time I went with Maroon 5 and did their hair so I did not really need a job. Derefter spurgte Adam [DiVello]: “Hvad skal det tage?” He is Italian and I am Italian so he scares me like the Italians do. Det tog et par pasta middage og den almægtige dollar.
Spencer Pratt: Sean Travis, en af producenterne af Bakkerne, også produceret Princes of Malibu with Brody and I, before it was canceled. One day I kicked it in my mother’s house and her friend said, “Have you seen this show? This girl is so sweet.” And that was Heidi. The trippiest part is that I did not even make the connection that I had already met her on Privilege [Ed note: en nu-nedslået natklub] sommeren før. Then I saw the name of the name in the course of the opening credits. Then I called him, and he told me that there was a set thrown off Laguna Beach og han could not get us on. Jeg var ligesom, “Bullsh * t. Vi ses hos klubberne.” Jeg ringede til Brody og sagde: “Vi skal tabe $ 30.000 i flasker og lave en scene på området [Ed note: en anden nu-nedslået natklub] ved siden af deres bord. “Brody var en hardcore prins på det tidspunkt.
Brent Bolthouse: Spencer var altid en hustler.
Adam DiVello: Brody og Spencer var en fixtur på scenen da. Det er lidt svært for dem at ikke infiltrere ind i vores verden. Så begyndte Spencer på danse Heidi.
Stephanie Pratt: I met Lauren shortly at a club where we came into an argument. First time I met her right when I went late in my class at FIDM, and the only open seat was next to her. Ud af ren ubehagelighed, I excused me to fight with her.

Sene nights and close neighborhoods lead to romances blossoming. Noget af Bakkerne‘Mest standout-domstole var Montag og Pratt; Patridge og Brescia; Jenner og Conrad; derefter Jenner og Kristin Cavallari (for en anden runde). And do not forget about the infamous connection between Jenner and Conrads childhood friend, Jen Bunney.
Heidi Montag: First time I saw Spencer, I immediately fell in love with him. Jeg havde goo-goo øjne. Han var omgivet af, ligesom 20 [Playboy] Legekammerater. Mænd jeg dansede alligevel med ham, og vi slog det af.
Spencer Pratt: Heidi er en skræmmende god danser. Og det var da jeg troede, jeg var Derek Hough. That’s the last good memory I’ve ever had in a nightclub.
Heidi Montag: Jeg tror, at folk kendte dybden af kærlighed, vi havde med det samme. And I think it scared them a little. We are soulmates and what we did on the camera was nothing compared to how much we really loved each other off-camera.
Justin Brescia: Heidi og Spencer havde mine velsignelser fra dag ét. At all times, it always says a lot. When you look at people and their eyes are locked in the horizontal, you just know they are betød.
Audrina Patridge: Justin and I had an understanding with each other before the show. He understood what I was going through, and we became very close. So leads one thing to another. First and foremost, we were friends who really broke each other.
Justin Brescia: Lige uden for flagermuset havde Audrina mine bedste interesser. Der var ingen skjulte dagorden. Det siger meget til mig. Do what we do, you really have to peel the layers and look into one’s heart and what their intentions are and her superstition from today’s one. I therefore think that it [the relationship] did what it did. You come to this point where your throwmates will be like family. Then you come into situations where you have romantic dinners. På er i din tidlige 20’erne vil de ting komme til gavn. You will not be against certain things that come your way.
Audrina Patridge: I my eyes were more than work because we had something before Bakkerne selv begyndt. På showet var min hjerte meget på min ærme, så det var svært for mig at adskille de to. There were things, we made off-camera, there was real, and on the camera it was all ruthless and heartless. I could not enjoy that part of it at all.
Justin Brescia: You spend so much time with each other in the spotlight, and it can almost play a trick on you. You almost believe what’s out there in the air instead of your thoughts and beliefs, and I think this is where many people get threatened. I tried to be true to what was in my heart. People can believe everything they want now, but time and truth really say. It was a velsignelse to be able to talk freely about it and give something inspiring to people who do not believe that way.
Audrina Patridge: Denne linje – “sandhed og tid fortæller alt” – was about us to be together. Justin var meget filosofisk. He would never give a straight answer, but he would have these brilliant enlinere where you would be: “It sounds very good.” Men afterwards you want to think about it and you’re like “What does it mean?”
Jennifer Bunney: Kysset mellem Brody og jeg var 100 procent falsk. Natten i min fødselsdag gik vi alle tilbage til Laurens hus. Vi havde alle et stort søvn den aften. I had a girlfriend at the time, and Lauren did that too.
Lauren Conrad: When you’re in the 20’s, there’s a lot of drama when you date and find out relationships – both with friends and others.

JOBBET (EN) EN MILLIONER MØDNE VIL KASTE FOR
Conrad and Port logged most of their days and stared at each other in the fashion dress Teen Vogue, før honing deres PR færdigheder ved People’s Revolution, som Cutrone løb med en jern knytnæve.
Adam DiVello: Lauren var allerede i FIDM, men hun havde brug for en praktikplads. The first place I wanted was Vogue, because Djævelen bærer Prada had just come out and it was very timely. Det lignede drømmejobbetDen en million piger ville dræbe for.
Lauren Conrad: Min mor har denne bog, where she annually makes me sign my answers and answer a few questions. One of them was “What do you want to be when you grow up?” From third grade on, it says just “fashion designer.” I’m not even sure who makes that idea into my head; I just decided that it was what I should be.
Whitney Port: I would always be in fashion, but I did not know what I would do. Mennesker is not aware of how meat-throat and opinion-based it can be. One season you can do well and next season it’s gone. På Teen Vogue, I was so worried about what they believed in me, as when they picked out of our outfits …
Lauren Conrad: Looking back, I totally agree with the changes they have made. Vi var nye til branchen. I think, we both tried to dress appropriately at work and not really sure what it was. Men at that time I was like: “Oh man! I took a week to pick this out!”
Whitney Port: I was so terrible that day. We did not look good. I do not know if I had that style, or if the trend was just as bad then. Anyway, I did not ask. I figured if I did well during the internship, I would land my dream job.
Lauren Conrad: Lisa fortalte mig senere, hvorfor hun sagde, at jeg altid vil blive kendt som den kvinde, der ikke gik til Paris, for it’s what Anna Wintour referred to me as. I came up in a conversation, and she said, “Oh, you mean that girl who did not go to Paris?” Jeg var som “Great!” Not alone were they surprised about it – the whole crew was shocked that I did not go. I was so burned out at that time; I needed a moment to breathe. Mænd jeg gik til sidst!
Kelly Cutrone: Lisa called me and recommended me to the producers. At that time I felt a shift in how people would get their information about fashion industry. Som, hvorfor er ikke nogen inviteret til at se det? Det er en forbrugerdrevet virksomhed. Originally, I did it for free because it was a great way to get exposure to my clients. And if I had it wrong, I could make maple syrup like this in Vermont. Mænd jeg vidste, at jeg gjorde et kontroversielt skridt. Jeg indså, at jeg fik min Jeremy Scott til Longchamp taske og et par Havaianer og gik langsomt ud af en bjerg. I knew that by scratching some of the finer that covered this inner fashion world, people would be very disturbed. I was conscious of it. Mænd jeg var ligeglad.
Whitney Port: Kelly var sikkert min karriere mor. Hun holdt altid øje med mig.
Kelly Cutrone: These girls were really interested in mode. Og for folk der ønsker at arbejde i branchen, tager det dybest set dit liv. If you’re from Montana, and you have sunday dinner at. 16:00, it’s probably not the best place for you to be. Det er ikke bare et job. It’s an all-inclusive thing that will take everything from you. Mænd det vil også give dig et ton. That was it, I meant when I told Whitney that she was making an appointment with the devil.
Audrina Patridge: Quixote var et rigtigt arbejde. I got a lot of trouble because they would film there and I was the only receptionist. I was like: “I’m going to be fired!”
Heidi Montag: På arbejde på Bolthouse var sådan en sjov oplevelse. It was great to keep the clipboard and feel like you are running the line. They are one of the world’s largest event firms and throw millions of dollars. I could not just sit and play Solitaire all day.
Brent Bolthouse: Heidi var altid en sulten arbejdstager. Hun ville gøre ting. She was done what needed to be done. And she was willing to do anything to move on. She had greater hopes than being a secretary, and she always showed that she wanted to push the envelope and take risks.

Spilleren tilbragte hovedparten af deres nætter, der ramte Hollywoods klubscene i de så varme områder, Les Deux, Geisha House og Opera.
Heidi Montag: Klubber was so much cooler than before mobile phones and Snapchat. It was free and fun, and everyone was there and there. Lauren and I ran all the time in the clubs. We had a time plan. Tirsdag og torsdag var Les Deux. Onsdag var område Fredag var Privilege. Nobody knew who we were yet, but we still got in and got tables.
Michael “Spike” Van Briesen (Producent): Adam was always very aware of filming anywhere there is hot and happening. Brent fik os adgang til mange gode steder, som Area. Det var en “du ridder mit ryg, vi vil ridse din” slags ting.
Brent Bolthouse: Area was my vision of what I thought a beautiful mid-century modern nightclub could look like with a resident. Les Deux was a fantastic place that had existed for a really long time as a French-Bohemian restaurant. when Bakkerne We began asking people if we could film their fester. By season 3 asked us to film there.
Lauren Conrad: I think that I was young worked to my advantage. I look back on the amount of things I used to do and it’s so crazy. I do not think I could do it anymore. Jeg brændte helt klart lyset i begge ender.
Spencer Pratt: Heidi og Lauren had this pizza spot they used to go to after the clubs. I swear to God, until today I have never seen two girls who could eat pizza faster at. 3. Jeg taler hele larges til kuppelen.

Sammen med utallige mindeværdige citater, Bakkerne født nogle fantastiske mid-agter mode øjeblikke, herunder Conrads varemærke overdimensionerede sunglasses og pandebånd.
Adam DiVello: We have always wanted the girls to wear their own clothes. Vi har aldrig givet hår eller makeup eller garderobe. What you use, represents who you are. It is an extension of your personality.
Heidi Montag: I løbet af sæson 1 var alle mine ting fra sparsommelighed eller hånd-down-downs. When I started to get a little more money, I came into heels and Birkins. Jeg havde en million dollar skabet. Det var sindssygt.
Jennifer Bunney: Heidi used to let me go into her closet and borrow her clothes. Jeg husker at elske alt hvad hun havde på sig. Vi havde lignende stil.
Kelly Cutrone: I can remember Lauren come into my office with, like, four or five boxes of Jimmy Choos and Louboutins. De så alle sammen varme og girly, meget vestkysten-y.
Audrina Patridge: When I see old pictures, I’m like, “Hvad. Var. Jeg bærer? ” Men på det tidspunkt var alt super sødt. Den edgy rocker stil vil altid være en del af mig.
Justin Brescia: Mine popper var en stor Harley fyr og Bostonian, so I held many of his stairs. Much of it I still carry with me. I do not have an abundance of clothes, but the things I have, I have for life. I like to live in my things and make it a part of me as much as I can because in this life today you should just be as comfortable as possible.
Whitney Port: When I look back, I do not even know how I worked in mode because my appearance was so wild.

“En mand så stor, han havde brug for at navne”
En af de mest hilariske scener i hele serien kom da Conrad og Bosworth besluttede at konfrontere Brescia om hans påståede til navne: Justin og Bobby.
Justin Brescia: Min mellemnavn er Robert. Min fars navn var Bob, så han var Bobby Brescia. Da jeg var barn, ville folk kalde mig Bobby, fordi jeg ligner min far. I did not want my birth name on the show – it made me the wrong way – so I thought it would be cool to keep an alias of kind. I thought “Bobby” was on the bottom tide of that kind of thing. Så jeg fortalte Audrina, “Fortæl produktion og hvem vi arbejder med for å si ‘Bobby’.” Mænd hun ville glide. De ville kalde mig “Bobby”, og hun ville bare sidde der og derefter gå, “Åh, mener du Justin?” Jeg skulle sparke hendes skinne under bordet. Then came to a head at a time.
Audrina Patridge: Det var underligt for mig, fordi jeg kendte ham før som Justin. And when he began to film, he would be known as Bobby. Og jeg var som: “Hvad skal jeg ringe til dig?” Then when I talked to Lauren about that off-camera, she told Lo, and then it just came out of hand. Det er sjovt, hvordan det sidder fast. Det virker!
Lo Bosworth: Han kunne ikke klare sig, so I suppose I did for him. It was really unintentionally, but some things are not easy to shake.
Justin Brescia: You can not find it and you can not run away from it for long without letting it do its thing and just be.
“Jeg vil gerne give dig, og jeg vil gerne glemme dig”
Det var kampen, der lancerede 1.000 GIF’er. Conrad and Montags eskalerende tiff over her relationship with Pratt came to the head of their former apartment at Hillside Villas in La Brea, California. Så kom mascara tårerne.
Heidi Montag: Lauren ville se film nogle gange og blive påvirket af dem. Jeg tror, at den linje blev rejst i hendes tanker.
Lauren Conrad: Der er ikke noget falsk om den scene. It was a very genuine moment. And mens it took many conversations for me to be open to having the conversation on camera, I think it’s important that we did.
Michael “Spike” Van Briesen: It’s good to put the throw in situations that are unpleasant. I always want to say, “If you need to say something to someone, say it. If you have feelings about this person, tell that person.” It’s like being a camp counselor.
Heidi Montag: It was really intense for me, for it was the first time I had seen Lauren since I had surgery. When I woke up, all this exploded had exploded. I was like: “Did I wake up in hell?” I did not realize that something of this would happen. Det var virkelig udfordrende for mig at få modet til at gå der ved at vide, at hun var sur på mig. I have completely pulled strength from the moment.
Lauren Conrad: I think, at the mere emotional scenes are the best because they were equally raw and real. They may not always look the most beautiful, but they were always truthful.

DEN NYE HEIDI
In January 2010, Montag was famous under the knife to get a dizzying 10 plastic surgery procedures performed in one day. Hun afslørede sin kosmetiske makeover på forsiden af Us Ugentlig, og senere i foråret, i BakkerneSæson 6 premiere.
Heidi Montag: When you have a surgeon who tells you, “It’s a bit of this, a bit of it”, it’s big wounds they cut you with. Jeg var for ung til at træffe en beslutning herom. I did not understand the size of the situation. It was definitely the worst idea I ever had. Men at that time did not care what somebody else said. I just tried to survive and get through every minute of unpleasant pain.
Spencer Pratt: Det var sådan et tungt øjeblik. Plastikkirurgi er ingen gåtur i parken. That’s when I got into the crystals. I played nurses, and her analgesics did not work. Jeg startede Googling “homøopatiske midler”, and I’m reading this article on Sugilite-this one stone with healing powers. So I go to buy a $ 15,000 piece of Sugilite, and when she held it, she said she felt no pain. So I was like: “I fill the entire bedroom with crystals! I put them on!” I did not want Heidi to have a pain anymore. Jeg begyndte at komme ind i wands også. I was like: “I have to be in Illuminati, that’s my only chance.” There was very dark energy, and I sought some way to counteract it. Du begynder bare at blive middelalder på sh * t.
Heidi Montag: I felt terribly because Spencer did not want me to do the operations in the first place. I did not realize that I did both of us to surgery. Han var den, der måtte sidde der og se mig græde hele dagen i skrigende smerte. I would definitely not recommend it. When things seem too good to be true, it’s because they are.

GLARE OG STARE
Showet var kendt for sine iskalde staredowns mellem cast medlemmer. Ifølge producenterne var de surly udtryk en redigering taktik, raffineret over tid.
Michael “Spike” Van Briesen: Jeg stedet for at sige “du suger” var det lettere at få dem til at stirre direkte på nogen og cue ud med et soundtrack.
Adam DiVello: Vi ønskede at gøre showet føles sæbe. Det var som en cliffhanger til næste uges episode. Den store ting, vi ikke havde, på mange virkelighedsudstillinger gør, er de confessionals. Men we were on MTV, so we had access to many songs, which many people still did not have. One of the best blinds and gazes is when Lauren looked at Whitney when they talked about the rumor and we played Rihanna’s “Umbrella”. Musikken contributed to the story of history.
Lauren Conrad: I think, at most of these sees came from the end of the shooting. Vi stod bare der; We were not allowed to talk.
Whitney Port: There was not necessarily something we consciously did.
Kelly Cutrone: Det var ikke planlagt. All eyes would be open and you would nod with your head without blinking. Det er så vanvittigt. Det var denne psykiske mærkelige forbindelse. There is an open blink without closing the eyes.
Audrina Patridge: I would be like: “You guys! I said this and you did not even know what to say – you just showed me staring!” It was frustrating, but it was part of the show.
REAL VS. FAKE
Om eller ej Bakkerne var virkelig eller falsk forbliver et meget debattert emne, med forskellige cast medlemmer talte om hvilke historier der faktisk blev skrevet.
Heidi Montag: Lauren was very serious about not doing false things. Jeg beundrede altid hende for at stå hende med sit show. Mænd meget af det var konstrueret. Spencer gjorde det ikke really suggest me on a beach in Santa Barbara. Sometimes I will be confused in my head. I think I played it as if I knew what I did, than I actually did.
Spencer Pratt: I just had a show canceled, so I wanted the reviews. I always chased this weekday. I loved to go to Hermès og køb alt. I ate dinner with Wolfgang Puck and got him to cut my steak for me every night. We wanted to have a show, as people looked at, so we did all these things that made us look like the worst people on Earth. Da kameraerne var slukket, var jeg en komplet gentleman–åbner døre og går i film og krammer. Der var en Dr. Jekyll og Mr. Hyde ting foregår. Hvis jeg gjorde noget af det i en indiefilm, ville folk tro på, at jeg er den nye Jennifer Lawrence.
Stephanie Pratt: Spencer er det sjoveste menneske på planeten. Han er et reality tv geni. The film with ham was always the highlight, except when he was angry with me, and last season when we stopped talking. I never think of these times. Det var meget mørkt.
Brent Bolthouse: Vi havde en rigtig firma, der kastede fest i L.A. Teen Vogue var et rigtigt magasin. We did not change our lives for this show. No matter what happened, what were these children doing.
Kelly Cutrone: Visningen blev ikke skrevet. Folk blev filmet, og efter en to- eller tre-timers gennemgang ville producenterne klare sig med forslag til plottet.
Michael “Spike” Van Briesen: Vi har altid forsøgt at holde showet så organisk som muligt. Du skal gøre folk komfortable om, hvad de ikke ønsker at tale om på tv. I have never told girls what to say. I helped them think about what they wanted to say.
Adam DiVello: Det var planlagt virkelighed. Vi var ikke med disse børn 24/7. Vi havde ikke deres huse wired. We knew when they came. We were constant i contact with all of them. Of course there were many speculations, so the final was a heavy-in-kind nik to the storytelling process. Det forlod seeren undrende lidt.

PÅ NÅR SHOWEN SLUTT
Mens Conrad forlod showet halvvejs gennem femte sæson– efter at have lavet en overraskende udseende hos Montag og Pratt’s bryllup-It ended officielt with season 6, after Cavallari took over as the main character. Under den sidste episode af serien beslutter Cavallari at flytte til Europa. I the last scene, Jenner hendes bilkørsel ud til lufthavnen og en falsk Hollywood Hills kulisse trækkes væk og afslører et sæt og fremhæver rygterne om Bakkerne at være falsk.
Lauren Conrad: I really struggled to go because I was not happy to do it anymore, and at that point I was in a relationship with someone who could never exist on the camera. I was ready to start my real life. There was always a compromise when I filmed and I had to decide what I could share and what I could not and I felt very little my own. I was in a place where I knew that the show could go on without me and I would be happier if I left. It was not an easy decision, but I did, and I’m glad I did.
Audrina Patridge: Da Lauren forlod, var det ikke det samme. Det gik langsomt til drama og kaos. It was not fun anymore. It was not genuine or happy. Det var drama, drama, drama.
Adam DiVello: We had come to a point where Lauren had left the show for years before, and Kristin came gracefully in for the last two seasons. Men folkens berømmelse blev ramt af dem, og det blev større end hvad showet var. Jeg troede, at vi havde fortalt historien.
Heidi Montag: Da showet står, var det chokerende. We did not know what to do. We went first to Malibu and had all these marines and bodyguards who lived with us. Then we went to Costa Rica and lived there for a couple of months. It was difficult because we did not really have our families, and life was just a mess. Det var virkelig udfordrende at justere fra det høje.
Spencer Pratt: Hvis du havde bedt mig lige før Bakkerne endte what I should do, I would have told you, “I’ll be on a reality show for the next 30 years!” Det er ikke vildt, når du tænker på Kardashians. You did not believe that you could just be turned off. Spil over.
Audrina Patridge: Since I did not have people calling me, telling me where they should be, what to say or what to do, I felt lost. There was a big call to me. So I took about a year to myself and came back in contact with me again.
Justin Brescia: I made some investments. I bought a really nice home in Manhattan Beach, opened to the salons, and did a bit of traveling. The last thing I wanted to do was to be around L.A. so I went to Nicaragua for a couple of years on a surf trip.
Whitney Port: Jeg ville se, hvordan verden var som i New York. Det tog mig lidt tid, men jeg vidste at gøre Byen was a sure way to get the amount of exposure I needed for my final line. I had to be a smart businesswoman at the time and sacrifice of privacy.
Jennifer Bunney: Jeg gik til business school og fik min MBA på Loyola Marymount University, en mester jeg folkesundhed i Berkeley, og nu får jeg min doktorgrad i folkesundhed.
Liv efter Bakkerne
Mange cast medlemmer flyttede videre til karrierer i modebranchen, især Lauren Conrad, der kører til klæder, Paper Crown og LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl, og parlayed her reality tv-koncert i et spirende livsstil mærke.
Lauren Conrad: The biggest projects I’m working on now are my two lines. Then I wrote a new book, Fejre. I have also spent a lot of time working at The Little Market, a fair trade tøjlinie, which gives me the opportunity to work with fantastic female craftsmen. Jeg har travlt, men på en god måde.
Spencer Pratt: Mit liv er som Groundhog Day. Hver morgen laver jeg til 32 gram skud af Zip Zinger espresso. I used to have a lunch burrito every day, but now I have an apple with almond butter, because I will be model lean. So I usually do jujitsu for about one and a half hours, so I eat salmon. Then I go home, my old man’s knee, watch Apple TV, and tweet because I have no real friends to talk to. Then I want Heidi and I either get Sushi or Mexican food and I have some tequila on ice. Jeg holder det i rotation.
Heidi Montag: I’m a homely goddess. I’m mad and I do rent and I work with four dogs. Spencer and I will also try to get a baby next year. I’m ready to be mom, I think it will be so good a chapter. Kristin seems like such a wonderful mother, and I think Audrina will be such a big mom. Jeg tror vi skal have den nye Hills som moms!
Audrina Patridge: Jeg er gravid, så jeg skal snart have en baby. Corey [Bohan] og jeg planlægger vores bryllup, så der er mange ting vi klarer os til. And I work on my own swimming line.
Justin Brescia: Mit band, BobbyrocK, er på en amerikansk tour. And I have a hair care line. I have other people who run hairdressing.
Whitney Port: Min karriere udvikler sig definitivt. I take this time right now to restructure my line, Whitney Eve. Jeg er gave. Jeg bor i Venedig. Jeg har et meget normalt liv.
Kelly Cutrone: I develop a project with Lionsgate about the fashion industry and start working on my third book, You are a heks, you know, you are, about girls and magic and create the desired, through a pagan filter.
Lo Bosworth: I live now in New York and runs my own website, TheLoDown, low content for brands in cooking and lifestyle, and get a podcast called Lady Lovin ‘. My girlfriend and I welcome you to a new puppy in our home. I have no complaints.
Jennifer Bunney: Jeg er direktør for befolkningenens sundhed for et sundhedsfirma med hjemsted i sydlige Californien. I help to deliver quality care to people who are sick and old in vulnerable populations.

For mange, Bakkerne lever videre som en generation klassiker og vestige af træk, der vil blive verdsaget sammen med Josh Schwartz elskede teen dramaer.
Adam DiVello: Jeg tror, på alle deres liv har været igennem, hvad Lauren gik igennem. Hun er sådan en relativ karakter. Hun bar sine følelser på hendes ansigt – you always knew what she felt. She is always remembered for it in a very positive way.
Lauren Conrad: Everyone has these moments and everyone walks through them, and that’s a way others can relate to you so you do not feel alone.
Audrina Patridge: I feel like many Justiners can relate to what Justin and I went through. There were slurred lines, but there was a true love there.
Whitney Port: I’m so thankful. I would never get the options I have now.
Kelly Cutrone: På grund af min person på showet er folk bange for mig. It made my side card very easy to do because nobody came along with me in the front row anymore.
Brent Bolthouse: Jeg kører Bungalow, en ny klub i Santa Monica. Brody kommer hele tiden.
Lo Bosworth: I can not imagine what my life would look like without Bakkerne i det, og ærligt, jeg vil ikke, fordi jeg er helt tilfreds på dette tidspunkt. Jeg ville gøre det hele igen.
Heidi Montag: Jeg er meget taknemmelig for Bakkerne fordi det gav mig livet i mit liv. I appreciate all that Lauren has done for me, and Jeg har ingen vred. Måske i Himlen en dag bliver vi venner igen. We are all different people now. It’s the store thing in life: You do not have to be like you were 10 years ago. You can work on yourself and change.
