Kristin Cavallari is apparently drinking the MTV Kool-Aid. Which was probably fresh 2-3 years ago before it went completely stale. Oh, snap, we went there.
At the Rock the Kasbah charity gala in Hollywood last night, the reality star told E! Online that The Hills "is the No. 1 show and we are doing really well."
What exactly it ranks #1 in, she didn't say. Likely because you'd pretty much have to completely invent your own category to make that statement true.
We don't suppose it's worth noting that a rerun of the actual top-rated show on TV, NCIS, received 16 million viewers this week. The Hills? 1.72 million.
The Hills' ratings are declining, at least 30 percent in fact, starting the season at 2.1 million and sinking since. Still, when asked about it, Kristin insisted:
"No, they're not! We had one drop because of the Hip Hop awards on VH1, but they went up the next week." Mmm. Not so much, but whatever you say.
Kristin Cavallari thinks The Hills is doing great. Psst. No one tell her.
The once-popular show's ratings decline has received quite a lot of press, with many critics blaming Kristin's replacement of Lauren Conrad for the dip.
Kristin Cavallari calls that unfair: "At the end of the day it's not up to me to make a great show. "It's the whole crew, the whole cast. It's not just me."
"I think to put all that pressure on me is pretty unfair."
She may be right, but that was clearly MTV's marketing strategy, hyping the living hell out of her "return" with "The Bitch is Back" and other taglines.
Clearly The Hills needs some better fake storylines than the so-forced, fake love triangle they tried to create with Kristin, Audrina Patridge and Justin.
The world may be getting over Speidi, too. Don't get us wrong, they still entertain, but it was better when they feuded with each other (and with LC).
Now they just talk about ca-ra-zy sibs Stephanie and Holly? Zzz.
