If you tuned into MTV anytime from 2006-2010, chances are you caught at least one episode of The Hills, the famed spin-off of reality show Laguna Beach. While The Hills produced successful fashion designers and entrepreneurs, the cast also featured plenty of tabloid fodder. Three years later, though, we're looking to catch up with the stars of this hit reality series. What is the cast up to now? Take a look.
Jeff Vespa/WireImage; Monica Schipper/FilmMagicLong considered the "golden girl" of the Laguna Beach/Hills franchise, Lauren Conrad has done anything but fade into obscurity after her reality TV career ended. Since the Hills finale, Conrad has built her own fashion empire (as the head of two successful clothing lines) and authored two book series, L.A. Candy and The Fame Game. And even though fans of the MTV series practically lost sleep over which guy would win Lauren's heart, that question has been answered: She is currently engaged to singer-songwriter William Tell, after more than a year of dating.
Spencer Pratt & Heidi Montag

Near the end of their stint on The Hills, Pratt and Montag got married and had a less than successful run on the pseudo-reality series, I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! (Montag's obsession with plastic surgery didn't help things.) In fact, despite staying out of the spotlight for a while, Speidi is creating buzz again with their new fake reality series, SpeidiShow, and their desire to have an "Aura baby." And Montag recently admitted to Us Weekly that she is trying to go back to being more like her old self. The first step? Removing her size-F breast implants and going down to a more modest C. She excitedly admits, "I'm the new, new, new Heidi!"

Now a successful fashion designer, Cavallari is also a family woman: She and NFL hubby Jay Cutler are parents to son Camden, with another baby on the way.

But now that the MTV series is over, she's becoming quite the Renaissance woman! In addition to maintaining a healthy modeling career, Patridge has dabbled in dancing (with a seventh-place finish on Dancing With the Stars in 2010) and acting (in a web series for online network YOBI TV). Her next project? Patridge will be hosting NBC's 1st Look, taking over for former Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky.

After finding fame on The Hills, Brody Jenner made reality TV a family affair, appearing on Keeping Up With the Kardashians (he's Bruce Jenner's son, making him the Kardashian sisters' stepbrother). We can't say the TV stud has been very lucky in love, though: Jenner just split with model girlfriend Bryana Holly after four months.
Jason Merritt/FilmMagic; Joe Kohen/FilmMagicJason Wahler has certainly cleaned up -- in more ways than one! First, the former Hills bad boy has traded in his scruffy appearance for a much more dapper look. But the transformation hasn't been easy for Wahler, who dated (and cheated on) Lauren Conrad during the MTV show's run. In the years following, he was arrested multiple times for drunk driving and assault, prompting him to appear on Celebrity Rehab in 2010. But things are now looking up for Wahler: He wed model Ashley Slack on Oct. 12.
Polk Imaging/FilmMagic; Valerie Macon/Getty ImagesWhile one Montag sister steals the spotlight, the other hides from it! Holly Montag, Heidi's older sibling, hasn't made too many headlines since The Hills ended. Although she also tried her hand at I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!, the blonde beauty kept more to herself, trying out a career in standup comedy. But she does have exciting news! Like many of her Hills costars, Montag is now engaged to boyfriend Richie.
Chris Weeks/WireImage; Paul Archuleta/FilmMagicUnlike her brother Spencer, Stephanie Pratt hasn't made many waves in recent years. Although she's found herself in some legal trouble since The Hills -- most notably getting arrested for DUI after costar Holly Montag's birthday party in 2009 -- Pratt has stayed out of the limelight as much as possible.
Peter Kramer/Getty Images; Jason LaVeris/FilmMagicFor every washed-up reality star, there's one successful fashionista who makes a name for herself! Whitney Port has been one of those trendsetters, who has turned to designing clothing after her run on The Hills. She also authored a book, True Whit: Designing a Life of Style, Beauty, and Fun in 2011. But despite a flourishing career and an adorable relationship with boyfriend Tim Rosenman, life hasn't been all glamorous for Port: Her father, Jeffrey, died of kidney cancer last March. Since his passing, Port has done plenty of charity work and stayed in the public eye to build awareness of the disease.

After winning over the public as Lauren Conrad's sassy, honest best friend, Lo Bosworth channeled that spunk into her own career. Following her years on The Hills, Bosworth has launched her own site, The Lo Down, which features makeup tutorials, fashion advice, cooking recipes and other tips for a lavish lifestyle. She also authored a book of the same name in 2011, all while quietly dating businessman Jeremy Globerson. Not too shabby for the former Laguna Beach High School beauty!
