Where The Hills Stars Lived — Then & Now

Let’s pause for a moment and think back to 2006. George W. Bush was president, J.T.’s “SexyBack” dominated the airwaves, and Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag were just blossoming pals embarking on a new life — and spinoff reality show — in their new apartment in the Hollywood Hills. After the success of MTV’s Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, there was little doubt that The Hills would be a ratings juggernaut. However, no one, not even the stars, could have predicted its lasting (and unwritten) pop culture impact.

Six seasons, four apartments, and one notorious tell-all later, The Hills is officially gone but not forgotten. While filming has ceased, many of the homes (and events that transpired in them) remain permanently etched in our memories. Who could forget the killer kitchen in Conrad and Montag’s first apartment or the letters “L-A” spelled out above the sofa in Lo, Audrina, and L.C.’s purple-walled living room?

In honor of the fast-approaching reunion, we’ve rounded up a few of the cast members' coolest homes, then and now. Scroll ahead for a drama-filled walk down memory lane, and a reminder that while fame often comes at a price, it can also come with some really dope real estate.
