I can’t really explain why I love “The Hills,” and sometimes I find it difficult to admit to people that I love “The Hills.” But what can I say? I love “The Hills.”

Lately a lot has been written about how much of MTV’s hit reality show is, in fact, real and how much is pure fabrication. Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.

I don’t watch LC and Co. to immerse myself in the real world; I watch it to escape. As with “Sex and the City” and even “Friends,” if you’re concerned with how they afford the apartment or the clothes, you’re watching the wrong show.

Like a vacation, “The Hills” exists for pure escapism. And I, for one, can’t seem to get enough of that lately.
