The bad boy of the cast, Jason Wahler, lived up to his billing after the show ended. Dude has been to hell and back. Myriad arrests, trips to rehab and scandalous headlines followed him from Laguna Beach to The Hills and to celebrity gossip infamy. After struggling with alcoholism and attempting suicide, he has turned his life around in recent years through rehab and sobriety, and has been very open about his struggles and recovery. In 2013, LC's ex tied the knot, marrying Ashley Slack.
Lauren Bosworth, a.k.a. "Lo" (for Lauren O. Bosworth), was best known as Lauren Conrad's good friend, which she still is. But she has plenty going on in her own right. In 2010, she launched The Lo Down by Lo Bosworth and wrote a book by the same name. In 2013, she co-founded Revelry House, a brand that is designed to serve the modern hostess. In late 2013, Bosworth started her own beauty channel on YouTube, which has grown rapidly. She has been attending The International Culinary Center in New York City to study Farm to Table culinary, as well.
Heidi Montag. This one needs no introduction. While she wasn't a bona fide reality star until The Hills, she was briefly seen on Laguna Beach as "Lauren's friend." Oh, how things changed. She became involved with Spencer Pratt, forming half of the dastardly duo known as Speidi and becoming a celebrity news go-to couple for a year or two. They went on other reality shows, Heidi got 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day, and she even tried her hand at music before they faked a divorce and generally ran out of ideas and money. Amazingly, they are still together though.
Jen Bunney auditioned for Laguna Beach but was not cast among its principal stars, though she was friends with many and became a part of the show on its periphery. She later appeared on The Hills after her friend Lauren Conrad made a friend, Heidi Montag (pictured with Jen), who is still Bunney's bestie. It's a small world. She married Taylor Dunphy in 2014 and yes, Speidi was present.
Alex Murrel, in addition to being a reality star, was once a budding singer with modest talent who even had a minor hit in "Let It Come True," though her musical career never quite panned out. She went on to study at Orange County's Chapman University.
Taylor Cole went on to graduate from The University of Arizona with a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Sociology. She is currently a marketing coordinator for Incipio Technologies in Orange County.
