“They made us try on these bathing suits,” Kristin said. “And they made us come out of the locker room and show our bathing suits.”

“I was 17. That was crazy! Like, god,” Kristin added, as she reflected on the situation she’d found herself in at such a young age.

Stephen went on to explain that while he acknowledged the scene was uncomfortable, MTV would never put them in a situation where they asked them to change in front of them. But as the saying goes, “sex sells”, and that’s exactly what they were trying to do.

Stephen referenced another example of how Kristin was sexualized on the show, citing Kristin’s opening scene on Laguna Beachwhere she was seen hanging out in the pool in a red bikini – a pool/house they would later reveal wasn’t even hers.

Kristin went on to add that they never showed Lauren Conrad trying on bikinis, playing in the roles the creators gave them: Lauren was the nice girl and Kristin was the “wild woman with loose morals. “.

They even made a comment to Kristin about a thong bikini and how she would never wear one to set up Lauren’s future comment about Kristin dancing at a bar in Cabo while wearing a thong and denim skirt.

This podcast has been so revealing and entertaining to listen to, not only because Laguna Beach is one of my favorite reality TV shows, but also because you get to learn a lot about what was really going on behind the scenes.
