Brody Jenner Is Officially Joining MTV’s ‘The Hills’ Reboot
In August, MTV announced that it was working on a reboot of its popular 2000s reality show The Hills, and now, after weeks of speculation, Brody Jenner has confirmed that he will appear on the updated series, appropriately titled The Hills: New Beginnings.
“Don’t call it a comeback,” Jenner wrote on Instagram. His cheeky caption accompanied a Photoshopped picture of his face on a massive sign on a building on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, which was made to look like an MTV billboard promoting the show. Jenner also wrote that the show is “coming soon” to MTV.
The network announced the reboot during the 2018 VMAs. While many of the original cast members, including Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge, Jason Wahler, Frankie Delgado, and Justin “Justin Bobby” Brescia were on hand for the announcement, Jenner was not among them.
The reality star — who appeared on seasons 2 through 6 of the original run of The Hills, and who has also appeared on ThePrinces of Malibu with Spencer Pratt and Keeping Up With the Kardashians with his half-sisters and step-siblings, the Jenners and the Kardashians — recently tied the knot with Kaitlynn Carter. It’s not confirmed whether Carter will appear on the new series, but it seems likely that we’ll get a look at married life for the two.
Deadline has said that New Beginnings will also feature a few new faces and even some of the original cast’s children. Neither original star Lauren Conrad nor later-seasons star Kristin Cavallari will appear.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
