Kristin Cavallari Felt “Manipulated” by MTV

Celebrities Visit "Good Morning America"

Every once in a while, I feel like a Laguna Beach/The Hills reality star decides they want to pipe up again and talk about being exploited. Kristin Cavallari,  your turn!

The 27-year-old former reality star opened up to Oprah: Where Are They Now? about her time as a teenager on MTV’s Laguna Beach, and let me tell you, it is NOT positive. In fact, she felt very “used,” and “manipulated.”

On LC and her famous love triangle with Stephen Colletti: “Basically my boyfriend at the time, the producers would have him go and take out Lauren Conrad, take her to dinner, bring her flowers, which never would’ve happened if it wasn’t for the show, for MTV.”

On being cast as “the villain”: “Being 16, 17 in high school, not knowing really how to handle your emotions or even realizing what’s going on… I put up a wall,” Cavallari continued, explaining her sometimes harsh behavior on the show. “I put up a really tough exterior because I felt like they were really trying to take advantage of me. It was a really difficult time, and then when I saw it air, and saw the way that they represented me, I was really, really upset. I cried for hours and hours after I saw the first episode. It was hard, it was really hard.”

Well, can’t talk too much trash…that show launched your career, girl.  #Blessed?

Miley Cyrus Lets Homeless Friend Accept Her VMA Award

Miley Cyrus Lets Homeless Friend Accept Her VMA Award

Miley Cyrus won the Video Of The Year award at Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, but when her name was called, her homeless friend accepted the award on her behalf. How touching! She sure is passionate about the causes she believes in, isn’t she?

Last year, she made headlines for twerking all over Robin Thicke in a racy performance on stage — and this year, the more matured Cyrus is making headlines for a good cause. Kudos.

She invited 22-year-old friend Jesse up to the stage to accept her award. He said in an emotional speech, “I am accepting this award for the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving, lost and scared for their lives right now. I know this because I’m one of those people. I’ve survived in shelters all over the city. I’ve cleaned your hotel rooms, I’ve been an extra in your movies, I’ve been an extra in your life. Although I’ve been invisible to you I have a lot of the same dreams that have brought me to you tonight.”

After his speech, he directed people to Cyrus’ Facebook page where there is a statement encouraging people to help in ending youth homelessness.

The singer wrote on her Facebook: “Help me raise awareness and funds to end youth homelessness! This is just the beginning for me, but we’re going to get started now by focusing on My Friend’s Place, a homeless center for young people in Hollywood.”

Go Miley, GO!

Farrah Abraham Defends Herself, Bashes Sex Tape Costar!

Farrah Abraham knows enough that she has to justify her sex tape (and the selling of it) to fans, but not enough where the explanation isn’t completely ridiculous!

The Teen Mom star posted a message to her fans on video sharing site called Keek, seeking to justify to fans selling her sex tape to a porn publisher. Want to know what she said? You’re going to LOVE this…

“What would you do?” the 21-year-old rhetorically asked. “You have been a single mother for four years, off and on, dating loser-ass boys who always try and sell information, lie to you, manipulate you. You have just realized you are an awesome person and you deserve someone. Now that you’re 21, you’ve pretty much been crying every night because you are single and you’re alone. So, you make you’re own video, celebrate your awesome body (and) get your own sexy shots. So, the person you did this with has the urge to yell it out, when he should professional and is not. But you have companies that are interested, so why not sell it. And that’s what I did.”

(via Radar)

God, the fact that she has such a loose grip on what this means for her, her career, and how she is perceived for the rest of her life is kind of sickening.  She’s only 21! She has a KID! Not every sex video has a Kim Kardashian finish, people!
