Gavin Talks “The Hills”

I kind of feel like “outing” The Hills is like ratting out the mafia, no? It’s all fun and games to play “hey, is The Hills fake” but when you have someone who was actually on the show tell you it ain’t so real..well….it hurts. It just hurts. I mean, at least Elodie had the decency do lie to me and tell me it wasn’t scripted and that it was, in fact, reality and I respect her for that. Are you going to do and tell 6 yrs olds about the truth about Santa Claus? I don’t think so. Well, thanks for ruining Christmas for us, Gavin.

Gavin sat down with someone over at VH1 to discuss his horrific experience. Here’s some of what went down:

Interviewer: Alright, man. I’m just gonna come right out and ask: how the hell did you get involved with this televised Crazy Carnival?

Gavin Beasley: Last year I was booked on an editorial modeling gig, posing with Lauren for this interview she did in People Magazine. We got along, and she kept trying to set me up with Heidi, because she was on a break from Spencer or something back then, and Lauren was trying to get her to move on. But nothing ever happened with that and Lauren was dating Jason (Wahler) at the time, so we didn’t keep in touch at all. Then in August I got a call from my agency to go to a casting call for Teen Vogue, and Lauren and the camera crews just so happened to be there. She remembered me from our shoot, and the next thing I know, a producer’s asking me to ask Lauren for her number, and I’m signing release forms and being shot for The Hills. They wanted me to ask her about the runway show, how long she had worked that day, when would she get off, stuff like that.

Interviewer: So was your whole experience on the show like that?

Gavin Beasley: Absolutely, from the very beginning. Like, they totally set up the BBQ scene for Brody and I to meet each other and talk because, as they said, “the audience would get a kick out of seeing ‘the ex’ talking to ‘the new guy’.” So they rent this house in Malibu for a set, bought a bunch of food and drinks, and just filmed us hanging out. Brody would talk all this sh*t, then be like, “Sorry about that, we’re just trying to make good television.” Like at one point, some other dude walked up to us while we were talking, and Brody goes, “We’re trying to film a scene here. Do you mind?”, like he’s interrupting our lines. Haha, it was some of the best acting I’ve ever done.

Interviewer: So the big date with Lauren. What did you two actually talk about for the hours and hours you spent together that we didn’t see on the show?

Gavin Beasley: I honestly had a really hard time talking to her – she’s kind of a conversation killer, and when the cameras are rolling, all conversation is kept firmly on the surface. She talked about how mean Perez Hilton was, and how you have to be nice to the Paparazzi so they don’t release the uglier pictures of you. I don’t know – pop culture, Red Bull, stuff like that. In fact, the most interesting thing I got out of her was that she isn’t allowed to eat ice cream because her trainer told her she can’t.

Interviewer: So how did this big adventure finally end?

Gavin Beasley: Well we shot all this back in August, and I didn’t film anything else, nor did I talk to Lauren again after our date night. Someone from MTV called two weeks later to see about me asking Lauren and Whitney out on a double date, but nothing happened with that. In fact, I actually feel like I had more of a relationship with my MTV contact than I ever did with Lauren.

Ok so good interview. No offense, though, but where were the questions about who Lauren would have a lesbian love affair with? Where are the questions about Heidi’s new nose and/or boobs? Where are the questions about the true story behind Lisa Loveless? I blame the interviewer for not asking these hard-hitting questions. I also blame Gavin for not asking Lauren about this on the show. If I was on the show, I would have drilled Lauren (yes, that way too) with all sorts of questions until the producers actually would make me leave the “date” and then never air the scene. Way to “not” sell out Gavin. Disappointing.
