In preparation for this year’s VMAs, which are this Sunday, we all step into the WayBack Machine to revisit its red carpet, ten years ago. And, you guys, the 2006 VMAs were NOT well attended. I was looking at our coverage and thought, “maybe Heather and I were just REALLY HUNGOVER this week and didn’t feel like writing about this?” — we were much younger then; it was wholly possible — but I actually think it was not a celeb hot ticket that year for some reason. Red carpet attendees including everyone from The Hills (which is peak 2006), including Brent Bolthouse, and also, like, Rocco DiSpirito? Which is not to say that some of these flashbacks will not thrill and delight you, because THEY WILL. Oh, they WILL.
