Kristin Cavallari Pulls Back the Curtain on Laguna Beach: My Life Was 'Manipulated for Dramatic Effect'

Originally posted 03/15/2016 03:00PM

When Laguna Beach premiered in 2004, viewers saw high school junior Kristin Cavallari as the fun-loving, popular and sarcastic girlfriend of dreamy Stephen Colletti caught in a love triangle with protagonist Lauren Conrad.

But in her new book Balancing in Heels, Cavallari reveals that the "will they/won't they" plot between pals Colletti and Conrad was cooked up by producers – and damaging to her self-esteem.

"Filming a super-successful reality television show when you are just 17 can do a number on your conception of reality. Like many teenagers, I had no self-awareness and thought only about myself, and that was amplified by starring on Laguna Beach, where I got professional accolades for being outspoken and wild," she writes. "Being tough and rebellious felt like my real identity, and I thought I was in total control of my life. But it wasn't the whole picture. My relationships and the general ups and downs of the that time and immediately after were often manipulated for dramatic effect by TV producers or even myself. Behind the scenes, I was uncomfortable and terrified of getting hurt."

Cavallari, now 29, says she'd fake phone calls, be fed "wild lines" and film scenes out of order all in the name of must-see TV.
