MTV’s The Hills is back. The classic reality series returns with New Beginnings, a reboot that follows several original cast members through scandals and drama.

Given the some cast members chose not to return, however, fans may be curious about where they are, and what they are doing today. Read on to find out:


Lauren Conrad

Conrad, 33, was the lead of The Hills for its first four seasons. She provided the opening narration for each episode, and as many will recall, delivered some of the most quotable lines in the show’s history (“You know what you did!”). Conrad was reduced to a guest during the final season, and chose not to return for New Beginnings.

Since 2009, Conrad has expanded into the fashion and retail industries, and published the popular style guide Lauren Conrad Style. She also wrote the novel L.A. Candy, which became a New York Times bestseller upon its release. She currently lives in California with her husband William Tell and they are expecting their second child.

Heidi Montag

Montag, 32, rose to fame as Conrad’s best friend on The Hills. Her romance with fellow cast member Spencer Pratt led to the dissolution of her friendship with Conrad, and their falling out was a major plot point. Since the show’s cancellation, Montag has stayed in the limelight and ventured into different avenues like music and fashion.

Montag released her debut studio album Superficial in 2010, but the album was a critical and commercial failure, and failed to recoup its budget. She also received widespread criticism after undergoing ten cosmetic surgery procedures in one day. More recently, Montag and Pratt competed on the eleventh series of Celebrity Big Brother and All-Star for Celebrity Big Brother 19. She will return for New Beginnings.
