In 2004, MTV premiered the reality series Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County, which followed a group of Southern California teenagers with interconnected drama. The series was a response to Fox’s hit teen drama The O.C. and became a pop culture phenomenon in its own right.
Laguna Beach helped launched the careers of Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari, who each starred in the spinoff The Hills and built fashion and lifestyle empires. The series also launched the acting career of Stephen Colletti, who later co-starred in One Tree Hill.
But what became of other cast members? Who’s married, who has kids, and who moved away from Laguna Beach? Do they still talk to each other? All of those details can be found on their social media pages, which are full of updates and photos.

There’s no bad blood between anyone, and some cast members even wish each other happy birthdays and document their reunions on Instagram. It’ll hit you right in the nostalgic feels!
