Laguna Beach premiered 10 years ago Sunday, September 28, introducing us to the world of Lauren Conrad, Stephen Colletti, Kristin Cavallari and company.

The TV world was never the same, and we're not even being facetious.

Nestled in Orange County, Laguna Beach was inspired by the small town of that name as MTV's real-life take on The O.C., which had just premiered on FOX.

What transpired was a reality TV first. The show simply followed the lives of the young, rich high schoolers, rather than putting them in scripted situations.

That came later on The Hills, but that's a topic for another time.

Laguna was purer, in a sense. No scripts, no confessionals, no new people cast as love interests. Just love, emotion, drama and Hilary Duff’s “Coming Clean.”

Neither The Hills, The City or any other show has accurately recorded of a group of young people coming of age, or document a love triangle quite like this.

On the same weekend that Lauren Conrad got engaged to William Tell, her ex-boyfriend Jason Wahler has one-upped her by marrying Ashley Stack!

The former Laguna Beach star married the model Saturday. The couple wed in front of family and friends at the Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, Calif.

With their respective boyfriends, that is. Although the former Laguna Beach stars, whose ongoing feud is well-documented, have definitely broken up numerous times, in a manner of speaking. We're saying there's no love lost between the Cali cuties!

In any case, Kristin Cavallari (right) has split with boyfriend Brody Jenner, People magazine confirms, while Lauren Conrad (below) has ended things with Jason Wahler, her beau on both Laguna Beach and The Hills, according to Teen People.

"Yes, Brody and I broke up. It's just hard right now because I am working all the time. We're still good friends though," Cavallari, 19, said.

The off-and-on couple, who met through Laguna Beach co-star Talan Torriero, originally broke up in the fall, but got back together shortly after.

In between spending time with Jenner, 22, Cavallari was spotted several times with rebound-tang crazed Nick Lachey, but friends say it was never anything serious. Cavallari described her romance with Jenner, the son of Olympian Bruce Jenner and a Guess model, as her first mature relationship.

"He's good-looking and he makes me laugh for hours," she told Teen People.

Cavallari, whose fame has rocketed since the second season of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, recently wrapped her film Fingerprints, and is now shooting Spring Breakdown. Both are slated for release next year.

Meanwhile, Lauren "LC" Conrad, 19, confirms she is no longer with Jason â€" even after she made the dubious decision to stay in California with him, rather than take an internship in Paris, on the season finale of The Hills.

On Laguna Beach, LC ended things with Jason, 20, after catching him kissing his ex-girlfriend, Jessica Smith, 18.

But for some reason, the two got back together shortly thereafter, and he was a regular presence on The Hills, her Laguna spin-off.

Lauren's younger sister, Breanna Conrad, 16, heads up an all-new cast of Laguna Beach, which makes its premiere August 16 on MTV.

If history is any indication, the much-anticipated Season 3 should provide tons of drama, some scandalous hooking up, underage drinking, a lot of gossip and ample hanging out at the beach.
