Hey all --
My name is Tracy and I’m a reality TV addict. I don’t care what the subject matter is -- if it involves real people and there's unscripted, pain-staking drama, I'm in. At first I was slightly embarrassed to admit that I watched everything from Paradise Hotel to The Flavor of Love, but now I've learned to embrace my obsession. I look at it this way: I always have something to talk about and, at any given hour, there's something for me to watch on TV.
On Wednesdays at 10pm it's Laguna Beach, which had its season three premiere last night. That’s right -- a brand new season of everyone’s favorite dirty little secret. LB is back with a new crop of angst-filled teen hotties. But before we get thrown in to the new cycle of ridiculous drama, we got the chance to catch up with some of last season’s faves. Alex M., Taylor, Jessica and Alex H. met for lunch to catch up and talk about how they don’t hear from US Weekly favorites Jason, Lauren and Kristin. We also learned that Jessica is hooking up with new guy, Cameron, who’s a junior. The best line of the night was when Alex H. said that Cameron is “hot, but stupid” and Jessica came back with “He’s not dumb, everyone just thinks he is.” We all know about Jessica’s taste in men and just when you thought she couldn’t get more pathetic than last year... she doesn’t disappoint. But dumb Cameron’s torn between Jess and the head of the new popular clique, Kyndra.
Kyndra’s former best friend, Tessa, is this season’s narrator. Tessa decides to join the bitchy girls and some guys over at Kyndra’s house for a barbecue, but pisses off the hostess when she brings her friend Raquel aka “Rocky”, who is apparently not cool enough to be breathing the same air as Kyndra and ultra-mean girl, Cami. Tessa and her posse leave pretty soon after due to the chilly reception.
Meanwhile, the boys make an appearance at the shinding fueling the girls’ idea that they own them. And what would an episode of Laguna be without the obligatory Jacuzzi antics. Kyndra and Cami don their cutest bikinis while the boys show their well-toned abs. It’s clear that Kyndra and Cameron do some of their best flirting while wet. The next day Cameron and Kelan are golfing, like all rich 16-year-old boys do, when Cameron admits that he “woke up at Kyndra’s this morning.” Uh-huh.
As much as we hate to admit it, these pesky kids with attitude have hooked us again.
Join me every Wednesday for some dish on the Beach. Until next time…
