Ten years after The Hills premiered, and the show is still giving us secrets. During The Hills anniversary special, we learned that there was a cameo from a superstar before many people knew her name. The special showed a clip of Kim Kardashian at Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag’s apartment, taking a tour of their home.
If it doesn’t make sense. Think back to 2006, and it all starts to fall into place once you remember what life was like back then.
Kardashian was still just a closet organizer/stylist. She didn’t have the name she has now. In fact, Speidi was much more of a household name. And Hills fans will remember that Pratt was BFFs with Kardashian’s stepbrother Brody Jenner, who was frequently on the show.
It’s all making sense now, right?
In the clip, Kardashian is talking to Jenner, Pratt and Montag about their plans for Memorial Day weekend. She talks about going to Vegas and then asks Montag if she’ll be at the VMA’s. What Kardashian doesn’t know, obviously, is she will end up married to Kanye West, a legendary musician and VMA regular. It’s mind-blowing.
It’s hard to guess where they will be when you’re watching these young kids in an LA apartment. Now, Pratt and Montag are living as recluses in Santa Barbara, and Kardashian is one of the most famous people in the world. It’s crazy.
It just goes to show that the Kardashians have been working on building their empire for so long. They knew at the time The Hills was the biggest show that existed, and getting some face time for Kardashian would do wonders for her career.
It didn’t work out exactly the way they planned, but I’m sure the Kardashian-Jenner family is just fine with the way things turned out.
