There seemed to be a major theme running throughout last night’s episode of The Hills: drinking isn’t good. This message was spelled out clearly for us in the Holly Montag storyline, but truly, if anyone needed exemplary evidence as to why alcohol might not be a great substance to abuse, one didn’t need to look further than the latest dramas with Kristin and Brody and Jayde. For as much as the producers want us to believe than Holly is a drunkard, her only offense seems to be a predilection for goofy dancing, and honestly, who hasn’t busted out The Elaine Dance whilst feeling a little tipsy here and there? No good deed goes unpunished though, and while Holly’s one woman dance party was great fun for all nearby spectators, it was no laughing matter for rehab graduate (and soon to be returning student, I’m sure) Stephanie Pratt. She immediately ran to Heidi — who famously was fired for drinking on the job, I might remind you — and the two girls browbeat a suddenly tan Holly about going to rehab to cure all that ailed her. I know we’ve only seen snippets of Holly’s life, but honestly, she does not come off as out of control (and it wouldn’t surprise me if she was merely prompted by the Powers That Be to act rowdy for the cameras).
More troublesome on the booze front is resident Playboy Bunny / busty Canadian Jayde, who for a season and a half has been caught on camera usually wasted off Jager (usually thanks to her penchant for chugging said Jager — also on camera). The problem with Jayde is not that she likes to dabble in fine spirits. The problem is that when she gets drunk, she turns into a belligerent drunk. She turns angry, she lashes out, and on occasion, she throws a cocktail or two at any nearby female who she deems as a threat. Basically, she can’t handle her booze, and yet no one seems to think she needs to go to rehab. Maybe she just doesn’t have supportive friends, which would make sense as she probably surrounds herself with a bunch of shallow bitches who merely want to travel in her Brody-tastic circles. Seems like a pretty miserable existence for those sidekicks. They basically have to sit there while the lovers quarrel. And speaking of said acrimony, while Jayde may be a sloppy lush, Brody is allegedly her boyfriend, and as such, he probably shouldn’t be such an ass to her. I know she’s insufferable, but I’m not sure it’s totally cool to curse out your lady in front of her friends, your friends, and America. As my father would say, these two have a lot of class â€”Â all of it low.
Meanwhile, in Kristin land, she and Justin Bobby continued to yo-yo back and forth to each other. At the top of the episode, Kristin announced that Justin Bobby only had one more strike left. She wasn’t even gonna wait ’til strike three to drop him. Sure enough, he hit strike two at her party when he texted her that he wasn’t coming. Oh no he di’int!!!! But wait! It was all a joke. Or was it? Either way, Justin Bobby arrived after all, thus effectively mind effing Kristin yet again. She was none too pleased by these shenanigans, and when she confronted JB about it, he responded with… more mind games! He didn’t really apologize. He just kept asking manipulative questions until finally Kristin folded and welcomed him back to her vagine. The dangers of alcohol, people! The dangers of alcohol!
As for the rest of our Hills crew, they really weren’t up to much. Audrina made a cameo appearance to babble with Lo about nothing fascinating. And Spencer showed up briefly to express concern about Holly and once again mock little Enzo, who has now made his umpteenth unwelcome appearance on the series. Seriously, the kid is annoying. FIRE HIM.
