How Much Is The Hills Paying Kristin Cavallari?
Be honest: Were it not for that headline, would you recognize the person in this picture? Would you maybe think to yourself, "Hmm, vaguely familiar in a generic way...oh, wait, that was one of the girls from the long-defunct MTV reality show Laguna Beach, Kristin Cavallari, the one who's done virtually nothing since (her 2007, according to Wikipedia: 'Made an appearance in an episode of Three 6 Mafia's reality show Adventures in Hollyhood when she went on a date with rapper Juicy J') and is so, so lucky that Lauren Conrad escaped MTV and left a reality wormhole on The Hills she could wriggle through"?
Well, guess how much she's getting paid to take Conrad's place! (Hint: You won't like it!)
According to Life & Style, Cavallari's raking in an estimated $63,000 per episode, instantly vaulting her to the status of "highest-paid member of The Hills" (it is good that this is taking place while Spencer Pratt is distracted). That phenomenal amount is only $2000 less than Lauren Conrad was making, and well within the range that many series regulars make on scripted shows.
In fact, EW's Michael Ausiello today speculated that actor Brian Austin Green, who has been working for decades, would be loath to turn down an offer of $75,000 per episode from the producers of One Tree Hill. Yes, maybe...or, he could make practically the same amount of money cold-cocking Spencer on national television. Which would be more satisfying?
