As fans gear up for the final season of “The Hills” premiering Tuesday, April 27, we take a look back at the previous five seasons and the standout moments that left everyone buzzing the next day. Coming in at #10 is the moment Stephanie Pratt told boss Kelly Cutrone that her career objective was to design handbags.
While it wasn’t necessarily the goal itself that was shocking, the way that Pratt’s conversation with Cutrone went down left fans laughing out loud. Not only did Pratt tell Cutrone — who said she very rarely read résumés and only did so as a favor to Pratt — that she wanted a handbag line, but she also had to convince Cutrone that she didn’t want to just use Cutrone’s PR firm, People’s Revolution, to bulk up her contacts in the industry.
Also, let’s not forget that Pratt also fibbed about knowing how to speak French. Did she know how to have a conversation with Cutrone in French? No. Did it mean she wouldn’t get the job? No. Would she eventually be asked to leave the PR firm? Yes.
To be fair, Pratt did eventually get her own handbag line as well as Cutrone’s respect. As it turns out, that interview is also one of Cutrone’s favorite moments from the show.
“That’s what she gave for her job objective,” Cutrone recalled to MTV News about the memorable job interview. “Her objective on my job interview was she wanted to be a handbag designer, which was still my favorite thing ever. That is the best. So, big shout-out. She should stick to handbag design.”
