If your a fan of MTV's Laguna Beach, you've heard the stories about how the show is somewhat fake, somewhat real, and somewhat orchestrated. There have been posts on message boards from people claiming to be from Laguna Beach and telling the inside story, but those have always been so boring with no real scoop that I never wanted to cover them. Leave it to a T.V. reporter to get the real dirt. E! Online's "Watch With Kristin" (love her!) wrote a great little inside scoop on the show and what goes on behind the scenes. Be warned, once you read the article it may kinda ruin the fun of the show for you (hint: they've been hanging out with Whore Hilton, bllllaaah!) But if you don't care, here are some highlights from Watch With Kristin's article:
- The cast is essentially A listers now on the Hollywood party circuit. Yah, we heard about Talan and Lindsay Lohan...Producers are none to pleased as they want their kids to stay "real." Don't we all?
- Season Three WILL revolve around the current cast now living in Los Angeles, and will pop back into Laguna from time to time.
- L.C. and gross Jason are supposedly getting quite cozy (Say it aint so! He is such a meathead! "uh, duh,yes, no, I don't know.")
- Things are left out of the show...like the fact that Stephen and Jason are really close friends.
- Not surprisingly, scenes are set up by producers (we've heard this one before) and that is why the kids are laughing a lot (aka: Kristin) while talking about serious subjects .
- The Bon Fire episode was completely orchestrated by producers, eg: little details were done like telling Jason which way to enter the beach (are you sure it's not just cuz he's stupid??)
- The big Cabo catfight between Jessica and Alex M was specifically planned for that night and Alex was told not to confront Jessica before the camera's were there.
- They "work" Thursday thru Sunday filming their scenes for the show and many times conversations are delayed so they can be caught on film.
- Most shocking of them all: one of the kids (who was not named) lives in a trailer park! oh, the horror!
