And it seemed to vanish into thin air, right after Kendra and Cammie and those kids graduated. Wha happon???
Again, I'm too lazy to Google around for the dirt on why the show shifted beaches: Did MTV tire of shooting at that one Italian restaurant in Laguna, where the kids would always go on their dates? Did the kids' parents finally freak out about their offspring being completely overexposed during their most embarrassing formative years? (I cannot express the utter and complete relief that cameras did not follow me around between the ages of 15 and 18). Who knows?
What I do know is that "Newport Harbor" is, thankfully, exactly the same as "Laguna Beach",
...just with a different group of privileged teens, and different backyard hot-tubs, and different models of Mercedes.
But I miss the word "Laguna". It's just so romantical. Romantical is another good word. And it totally describes Clay and Chrissy's relationship.
I may need an intervention.
