CONFESSION: I have a severe obsession with watching The Hills. Do you remember The Hills?—the spin off MTV reality series from ‘Laguna Beach’ that follows Lauren Conrad to LA as she ventures off as a single girl in the city juggling friends, work and love? Literally all those bitches did was go to lunch and stare at each other as a pop song played overhead, but I can’t stop watching it.
The series has since wrapped but Netflix fucked up my free time by adding it as an option to put in my queue.
With that confession out of the way, I was watching a few episodes the other day with a girlfriend—she hasn’t seen any episodes past season one so we took a field trip starting back at season two—the season where Lauren and Heidi’s friendship started to fall apart due to Heidi’s beginning of the end relationship with Spencer Pratt.
In the midst of our little marathon, there was one episode in the mix in particular that got us talking a lot—the Jenn Bunney incident.
Let me break down for those of you who don’t know. Jenn was one of Lauren’s good friends.
Lauren was beginning to date a guy she had been crushing on by the name of Brody Jenner. This is the part where I would say, “Yes THAT Brody Jenner”, but really is he famous for anything else?
Jenn starts crushing on Brody and eventually decides to make a pass at him herself. Brody of course goes for it.
Lauren finds out. Crying ensues.
No sleep will be lost on Brody’s behalf meanwhile Jenn now has to suffer the reality that she jeopardized her friendship for some dick. To still keep it blunt, dick comes (literally) and goes, friendship–true friendship is hard to find. I hope it was at least good bitch.
Moral of this story is that pulling a Jenn Bunney is never cool. It’s just that unwritten code somewhere one does not go for the guy/girl your “good friend” has been involved with in any way. Unless they were just an acquanintance or your friend has just messed around with the entire town, then that is a whole other scenario but if that is your FRIEND, just don’t do it. I never could gather my head around the fact that someone could openly gush in their friend’s face about how cute they are with someone and pushing them to go for it and then turn around and go for that same person. Whatever the case on the other side of the extra person involved–at the end of the day hoes will be hoes but as a friend, one needs to do better. There are entirely too many fish in the sea to be wrapped up in your friend’s fish. Leave Nemo alone and find another prospect.
