Laguna Beach: Where are they now?
On September 28, 2004 the teenagers of Laguna Beach, California let the American population tune-in to stories of their personal lives. The documentary-style show soon became one of MTV’s greatest hits. It is almost exactly six years later, and the entire cast is all grown up. The question on many fan’s minds is, “where are they now?”
The narrator of the show, Lauren Conrad (also known as “L.C.” in high school) remained a huge MTV reality star long after Laguna ended. Many watched her journey through life in L.A. on her spin-off show “The Hills”. Conrad left “The Hills” after the 5th season in 2009. However, Conrad still remains in the spotlight. She has a fashion line at Kohls and appears in many magazines. She has her own website at www.laurenconrad.com for people to stay up to date on her where abouts. The site is also used as a lifestyle blog. She’s also the author of the best-selling L.A. Candy series. There are even talks about turning the books into a movie.
Laguna’s resident bad girl Kristin Cavallari also remained on MTV long after Laguna ended. In fact, when Conrad bowed out of her hit show “The Hills”, Cavallari stepped in as her replacement. She was only on the show for two seasons before the series finally ended this year (2010). Cavallari is more well known for being a party girl and the end of “The Hills” hasn’t changed that. Cavallari is seen at many hot spots, movie premiers and within the pages of magazines. She doesn’t have a personal site like Conrad, but has fans watching and posting her actions. One site is www.Cavallari-fan.com. (She is also an avid twitter user).
The Laguna Beach heart throb Stephen Colletti is not as much in the spotlight as his other leading ladies. He has taken part in some mild acting here and there (such as a character on the CW’s hit show “One Tree Hill”). He also appeared in a Taylor Swift music video, and his latest work was a movie called Shannon’s Rainbow. However, this California guy seems content with a more laid back lifestyle.
Lo Bosworth (Lauren’s right hand (wo)man) also appeared on several seasons of “The Hills”. Now that the show is over, Bosworth is reported to be creating a website called “The Lo Down” (which she also plans to use as the title of her upcoming book). Bosworth is hard with work now that her MTV reality days are over, but she is definitely not fading out of the spotlight.
The cast also consisted of several other Laguna kid’s, but they have managed to stay out of the acting scene. In a 2005 People magazine article, Talan Torriero was reported as engaged to Kimberly Stewart (but the couple ended up breaking it off). Torriero has been known for the Laguna hunk who has dated many of Hollywood’s hottest celebrities.
Christina Schuller actually went to a broadway audition during the show and craved fame. However, it does not seem that she has taken part in too many things. You can find her resume online at www.christinaschuller.com.
Morgan Olsen and Trey Phillips are harder to locate. They appear on a few gossip websites, but that is about it.
I wonder if the audience would enjoy watching a Laguna Beach high school reunion? Should these reality stars meet up to see how things have changed? Would they still get along after all these years? What do you think?
