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.

The original Laguna Beach drama queen recently revealed she's not too fond of the new cast of the somehow-wildly-popular MTV hit show.

Yes, Kristin Cavallari says she thinks the new cast is just putting on a facade with their so-called "drama," while overemphasizing petty, little things.

Because, as we all know, Kristin, Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag and the rest of these SoCal cuties never blow anything out of proportion.

In any case, at a red carpet event last last month, the young starlet said she's not buying the hyped up Season 3 drama for one minute.

Kristin says the f*%king sluts on the new show are just acting to stir up more ratings drama and get as much attention as they can. The blonde admits she's given up watching episodes of the weekly show that made her a star.

"I've watched the first few episodes, but I don't think I'll be watching it again! It just seems like the new cast is trying too hard to be like us and they seem to be overly dramatic about every little thing, it's ridiculous," she said. "It's a joke. For us, the drama just came to us, but for them, it seems like they're the ones who go looking for it!"

When asked if she ever hung out with -- or even spoke to -- Kyndra or other members of the new cast, Kristin hesitated for about a tenth of a second.

"No way, I would have never been caught dead talking to freshmen," said Kristin Cavallari, 19.

No Kristin Cavallari, no waves.

Fewer, anyway. Less rad, man. Way. What the hell are we talking about? Two weeks ago, the third-season premiere of MTV's Laguna Beach, introducing an all-new cast of Orange County, Calif., hotties, was observed by 2 million fans. That's a good amount, but down 38 percent from the reality show's Season 2, Kristin Cavallari-enhanced average.

At least the new cast has potential and room to grow.

Nowadays, the 19-year-old is trying to break into acting and modeling, while maintaining a constant tabloid presence. Her ex, Brody Jenner, meanwhile, is apparently getting busy with pal Nicole Richie. Numerous blogs are reporting that the two have moved from "friends" to "friends with benefits."

Does this mean that Nicole gets free meals out of the arrangement? Because we all know she doesn't eat. Ooooooga. As we reported last week, Nicole was Brody's date for his birthday party at the West Hollywood, Calif., club Privilege. Then again, both Brody's mom and Kristin attended, so he and Richie are clearly taking it slow, at least for now.

We think this is great. Nicole needs a positive, loving influence in her life, and Brody is a solid, sweet, sincere guy, one who will possibly feed her in the near future. Why he would downgrade from Kristin, we have no idea. But he seems like a decent dude and hopefully these two find drama. Er, happiness.

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.
