Christina Schuller (now Sinclair), from Laguna Beach, steps Behind The Rope. One of the OG's of Laguna Beach. Season One! Originally from Laguna Beach, Christina tells us what it was like when MTV came a knockin’ to film one of the first ever Reality Shows. With The Real World being one of the only predecessors to compare it to, Christina sheds light on what filming was like when “no one knew what they were doing”. That “no one” included producers. We discussed the “Game of Thrones” casting process and competition amongst Laguna Beach’s High School Students to be one of chosen eight. We discuss how the original concept was supposed to be a True Life: Day In the Life of a Southern California High School Student versus the juggernaut viral sensation it became. With that viral sensation, came many perks like attending the VMA Awards, Diddy’s after party and all. That viral sensation also includes all of our favorite shows for years to come: The Hills, The City and now, currently, The Hills: New Beginnings (coming back soon!). Christina opens up about what life was like when she was thrust into the public eye overnight and how that changed life forever. She explains her unexpected ties to The Hills / The City star Whitney Port. We didn’t see that coming. We discuss what life was like after the flash bulbs faded and where she took her career after - acting, fitness, full time mom. Of course we discuss some of her Laguna Beach co-stars Lauren Conrad, Kristin Cavallari, Stephen Colletti, Lo Bosworth, Talan Torriero, Trey Phillips and Morgan Olsen. Speaking of those co-stars, Christina fills us in on all the details from the Season One full cast reunion that took place last year, the first time the cast has all been together in fourteen years. Tune in now to hear all that Christina has to share about this Granddaddy of reality shows.
