Personally, I loved Laguna Beach and The Hills. I knew that is was drama heightened for television, but I didn’t mind that. However, I wasn’t in the show and people weren’t tearing apart my life, so it didn’t matter to me.
Regardless if the person liked it or not, I am thankful thankful that they did it. Lo Bosworth being one of them. I love her spunk, but I am also a devout user of her wellness line – Love Wellness.
“I was just not interested in other people in an editing thing deciding, ‘Okay for Lauren the person, who are we going to present her and what she’s going to be doing,’” she said in regards to production and the way that they put the storylines together.
“I would be totally happy and content if nobody on this earth knew who I was and I could just do what I wanted every day and just be successful that way,” Lo continued. “All of this stuff, like still to this day makes me feel a little uncomfortable.”
I get what she means about wishing that no one knew who she was. People knowing who you are makes it hard to do things because everyone has an opinion and the constant input becomes draining. And being known should never be a traumatic experience, but for Lo, it was.
“It comes back to just being young, being on TV for the first time, being at college [and] kids making fun of you… I think that initial trauma has never really left,” Lo said. “I realized quickly when I was on television I was like, Oh, I actually don’t like being on TV.”
She added, “I prefer to just be an anonymous person, but I opened Pandora’s box. I can never close it again.”
