The Hills turns 100 tonight before dying next month; Kristen dating a camera operator

Tonight’s episode of The Hills is its 100th, and that arrives just two weeks before the series finale. On that occasion, MTV looks at its top 10 Hills moments.

Meanwhile, new/old cast member Kristin Cavallari has revealed another layer of artificiality: She’s dating a camera operator on the show, although of course that’s not part of the series. “That’s not part of the show. “Yeah, I’m dating [Miguel Medina] and that all I’m going to say about that,” she said on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, according to MSN. “Well, you’re together all the time, and it just sorta happens.”

Also on Seacrest’s show, creator and executive producer Adam DiVello said the finale “will be a big party” with the return of Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port, and said, “Everybody’s kind of coming at peace with their stories that we’ve been following along. A few of them definitely found happiness and what they were looking for.” Which was what, fame from publicly living a fake life?
