Brody Jenner is the latest former cast member of MTV’s The Hills to admit the reality show was a complete sham, staged and acted by the young cast.
The fakery included fake relationships and fake cheating. Moreover, Brody admitted, he pretended to date a dear friend and gained a reputation for sleeping around.
Brody admitted of the show, that aired from 2006-2010, “I would say that the hardest part of it was having to live that fake reality and not being able to say, ‘I didn’t screw every girl on the show.’”
Brody admitted, “I didn’t have sex with Jen Bunney. I didn’t hook up with Audrina [Patridge]. I didn’t hook up with any of these girls. And then you get all these people saying, ‘Oh, Brody’s a male whore. He sleeps with all these girls,’ when in actuality I didn’t do that.”
He and Kristin Cavallari dated before the show, and reconciled for a fake on-screen romance some time later.
“A lot of that show was scripted. A lot of it was improv,” Brody revealed of producers creating scenes rather than letting situations occur naturally.
He recalled of shooting scenes with Lauren: “Lauren’s a dear friend of mine, and it was pretty funny to have to live that reality.”
“We were just friends,” he insisted of Lauren. “We’d film a scene of us kissing or being in this lovey-dovey scene, and then right after it would be like, ‘Cut,’ and we’d be like, ‘Great to see you,’ and we’d go our separate ways.”
