Stephen and lc dating
Was there as much of a rivalry between you and Lauren as the show portrayed? I didn't hate her before MTV came and the way it sort of turned into. I think they sort of kept it going by having my boyfriend at the time going and hanging out with Lauren, which was hard! I kept being like, "No, that's Lauren's thing — I'm NOT going to do it." But with her leaving, obviously, it was too good of an opportunity to pass up.KC: I think because of the show, the rivalry between Lauren and I sort of escalated.

KC: MTV actually asked me if I was OK with them saying "the bitch is back." And I was like, "Yeah, let's do it.I'm coming back, let's make it big." I looked at it as a job and I was having fun so I was game for it.My mom, however, living in Chicago, was a little nervous. I think there was a point in my life where I wasn't even allowed to watch MTV! Unfortunately, I don't talk to Jessica, although I've gotten updates from friends.I think I would be nervous too if my kids wanted to do a reality show for MTV at age 17.
