The Dark Lord of Laguna Beach Slouches Toward The Hills

I am of course referring to Kristin Cavallari, Lauren Conrad's arch nemesis. Now that LC is leaving the reality show she built with meek facial expressions, MTV has tapped the villainess to do 10 episodes.

The horrifying thing is that I'm actually pretty excited about this, because Kristin was always way more interesting than Lauren. What with her weird California drawl, her perfect hair, and her complete inability to simulate real human feelings when poor cutie Stephen Colletti poured his heart out to her in San Francisco that one time.

Heidi Montag-Pratt has made a shambles of her villain role on the show, but we trust that Cavallari will return true evil to MTV in glittery fashion. Just look at what she said to Entertainment Weekly:

The goal for me is to get my fans excited about me again. When I first started out, I had a celebrity name but I didn't have the acting skills I have now. If I have some buzz with my name again, I feel like it will only help.

I'm a completely different person than Lauren. I have a lot more energy. I'm more outgoing. I'm a little more spontaneous. And she has a boyfriend so she's not dating on the show. I'm very open to dating and finding a guy.

I don't think MTV would be like, ‘Oh you're dating him now. This is your boyfriend.' But they might try and set up situations. I'm totally cool with that. Again, it's a TV show and they need to make it entertaining

She'll first pop up on the season finale episode at Heidi and Spencer's wedding (she'll catch the bouquet! because she introduced them! she's so evil!), which is airing on May 31st.

Which, fittingly, is my birthday. Got a feeling 26 is gonna be a good year.
