Who’s who in “L.A. Candy”

LC book

 

The fact that Lauren Conrad‘s first novel was a fictional tale but loosely based on her life, was both good and bad.

Good because the reader was able to see what goes on behind the scenes of theHills.  We’re sure the production element of L.A. Candy, the reality show in the book, is the same.  After all, how many ways can one depict a fake reality show?

Bad because the reader spends the whole time reading the book trying to figure out which fictional characters are “loosely” based on which real life characters.  It sort of interrupts the reading of the plotline.

Where Lauren was successful, is mixing and matching characteristics and events so that it seems like all the elements of her reality life are in the book, but they don’t match up exactly to theHills.  In other words, the characters have traits of more than one Hills cast member.

We took a stab at the inspiration behind the L.A. Candy characters.

Jane Roberts- Lauren.

Lauren has admitted to “relating” to Jane the most.  She’s the “everyday girl” whose life is central to the reality show.  She’s the star.

Scarlett- Lo/Heidi.

Scarlett’s depiction smacks of Lo mainly because Jane and Lo have been friends for so long.  Also, Scarlett is very intelligent and graduated from USC, much like Lo who attended UCLA.  The only similarities Scarlett has to Heidi is that Scarlett moves to LA with Jane and rooms with her, like Heidi did with Lauren.  Another possible Heidi trait is that Scarlett is sharp tongued and speaks her mind.  It’s hard to remember Heidi before Spencer, but we do remember an outgoing vocal girl.  Scarlett is also depicted as being so strikingly beautiful that everyone comments on it.  Lo is just now coming into her beauty, and although she looks great, she’s not the most beautiful girl in LA.  Then again, neither is Heidi, right?

Madison- Heidi.

Madison is the Heidi figure in that she starts the photo scandal that causes Jane to crumble.  Obviously this is like the sex tape rumor Lauren blames Heidi and her boyfriend Spencer for creating.  Perhaps even more telling is that Madison wants to be a star at any and all costs.  Audrina also desperately wants to be a star but she chose the classier route- getting her own reality show and not mudslinging Lauren.

Gaby- Audrina.

Gaby is Audrina because she’s not the brightest crayon in the box.  Actually, she’s a flat out airhead with bird brains.

Jesse- Brody/Jason.

The guys are harder to pin down because Lauren gets really creative with them.  Jesse is the son of celebrities like Brody.  But he’s also a bad boy who drinks to the point of no good like Jason.  Jesse is a guy who doesn’t mind being filmed on reality TV.

Braden-Kyle.

Braden is definitely inspired by Kyle because Braden’s a serious actor who can’t be on the reality show because his agent said TV producers won’t take him seriously.  Kyle Howard, of course, is on My Boys scripted show and notoriously (and to the shagrin of Hills fans everywhere) hasn’t appeared on theHills despite dating Lauren for the past year.  There are differences though.  Kyle is not friends with anyone on theHills and Braden and Jesse were best buds.  Their friendship actually closely resembles that of Brody and Spencer.  You get the messiness of it all?

Braden could have some Brody traits too.  Besides the obvious similarity in names Lauren has a great connection with Braden both romantic and as friends.  They like each other but Braden has an on-again off-again girlfriend in Willow (who could be numerous Brody women- maybe Cora Skinner?).

Paolo- Gavin.

Paolo is the photographer guy who asked Jane out at her job because the producers asked him to.  Jane thinks he’s a good guy, but on the date there were “no sparks”.  That’s verbatim Hills verbage from Lauren’s season 3 date with the model Gavin Beasley.

Fiona Chen- Lisa Love/Brent Bolthouse.

Jane’s boss, Fiona Chen is a hard cold woman who doesn’t smile like stone faced Lisa Love.  She’s not snarky or cool enough to be Kelly Cutrone.  But Fiona may have some traits of Heidi’s boss Brent Bolthouse because she really plays up the camera once the show starts filming her.  We can’t imagine Lisa doing this, but Brent and his partner Sam Nazarian have said they like being on the show because it’s good for their business.

Trevor Lord- Adam DiVello.

Trevor discovered Jane, Adam discovered Lauren.  Both Trevor and Adam are the big honchos behind the respective projects.

Dana- Liz Gately/Sophia Rossi.

Dana is a lady who works on the show.  We think Sophia has a role similar to Dana’s in that she works on the sets.  Liz Gately lives in New York and probably works out of an office.

Hannah- Whitney.

Jane meets Hannah through her job at Fiona Chen Events and they subsequently become unexpecting good friends who share their personal lives, much like Lauren and Whitney.

If you’ve read the book, which stars do you think inspired what characters?

        yes! i agree 100%.

      • Anonymous September 19, 2010 at 7:38 pm

        i think that scarlett can’t be audrina because in the beginning of the book scarlett has been best friends with her since kindergarten i think that scarlett is probably lo.

      • Anonymous July 14, 2013 at 8:17 am

        I am pretty sure that Audrina is not Scarlett. Scarlett is described as, I quote ‘unbelievably smart’ which, let’s be honest, Audrina isn’t. The only similarity I find between the two is their hair color. I think Gaby is Audrina.

  2. Liz July 16, 2009 at 8:02 am

    I initially thought Braden was Brody because of Jane’s instant connection to him…but later he got too camera shy to be Brody

  3. karen July 18, 2009 at 3:53 pm

    I’ve only started reading the book but I think the characters have mixed traits and aren’t based on anyone specifically.. Scarlett has Audrina’s looks, lo’s brains and Heidi’s care-free attitude.. at least in the beginning that’s how heidi was.

    I’m sure Lauren got ideas off people she knows but didn’t write or mold the characters after anyone in particular.

    • anonymous June 16, 2010 at 12:35 pm

      i think that heidi also resembles Jane. Heidi starts by dating a good guy and then fell for spencer (like jane falls for Jesse) some of the characteristics that lauren describes for jane also remind me of the person heidi used to be before spencer came into her life.

      • Anonymous September 30, 2010 at 9:36 pm

        Jane’s relationship to Jesse is so obviously based on Lauren’s troublesome relationships with both Jason and Brody.

        I think Braden is closer to Steven from LB because of the whole willow/kristen thing

  4. Cita July 18, 2009 at 7:46 pm

    I dont see Gaby being Audrina only because she’s not as dumb as she seems. If anything I see heidi making more dumb comments after spencer than Audrina..Scarlett to me, has some of Audrina, old Heidi and Lo. Because Lo is a pretty outspoken person as well, and lets not forget Lo and Audrina’s little confrontation. Jane does relate to lauren, but I feel as if Lauren is a lot stronger than jane when it comes to work and men. Gaby is Stephanie if anything. Madison is heidi all the way and I only dont think Adam DiVello was as money hungry as Trevor…Trevor is Spencer and Adam DiVello.

    • Anonymous September 4, 2009 at 6:02 pm

      i agree with you totally

    • Anonymous September 30, 2010 at 9:41 pm

      Gaby is a mix of Stephanie and Heidi, Scarlet is a mixture of Lo and Audrina (not Audrina just because of looks but also because of her independence and lack of fakeness, like how Audirna didn’t try to fake being nice to Lo and Scarlett didn’t hide that she hated Madison. Madison is evil-heidi post spenser and I think Jane is mostly lauren with a little early nice heidi b.s. (before spencer) thrown in

  5. SarahMay. July 21, 2009 at 8:04 am

    I agree mostly. I am so confused with who Scarlett is still. I agree that it is either Heidi or Lo, but I’m thinking Lo because maybe in Lauren’s eyes Lo is gorgeous. And Heidi is fer sure Madison because of her blonde fakeness.

    • Anonymous April 25, 2010 at 3:12 pm

      i dont think scarlette would be heidi for the simple fact that scarlette was extremely protective of jane and they stay friends, with the acception of a couple bumps. Haeidi is definatly not Scarlett, i know that for a fact. However i do agree that scarlett looks like audrina, but is probably based on Lo because lauren and lo have been bestfriends for ever. Im still confused with gaby, but im siding with the fact that she is stephani because Audrina just doesnt fit the description and she can also hold a job. Stephani however, if you remember lauren fired her. Other than that, I agree with most of the other character connections

  6. Julia July 28, 2009 at 7:10 am

    for some reason i keep thinking that madison is actually spencer. in the hills he was the one who made heidi and lauren become not as close, and in L A Candy Madison spills to the tabloids like spencer did, and at the end of the book, kept scarlette and jane apart.
    Also i think Scar is Heidi because at the start they were such good friends but now there breaking apart.
    hannah is definetly whitney.
    I think Gabby is audrina, Audrinas just not as empty minded. Im really confused about the guys though.

    • amber August 4, 2009 at 8:50 pm

      i never thought about madison being spencer! i agree with that! its a nice twist and it makes sense! im confused about the guys too…i thought braden was brody but it could be a mix of brody and kyle. who knows….i’d like to know who the guys were tho. i always liked the brody-lauren connection so maybe i just liked the thought of them together!

  7. realist August 4, 2009 at 10:52 pm

    For sure, to me the character of Madison had ‘spencer pratt’ written all over it. There’s no reason why a character’s sex can’t be changed in order to “blur” the lines of what person inspired which character. But Madison’s history, actions, it’s alllllll Spencer.

  8. leyla August 29, 2009 at 2:03 pm

    i just stared to read the book and i don’t know who is who because she did change up a lot of the characters i see scarlet sometimes as lauren because how sweet and nice she is then i see jane as heidi because shes so open and happy .idk it confuses i just want to know whos who! but i guess she didnt do it that way

    • Lauren Conrad fanatic October 10, 2010 at 2:12 pm

      ummm you are completely wrong! lauren even said that she sees herself as jane and lauren is a very happy and positive person!

  9. Stephanie September 11, 2009 at 4:43 am

    What about Willow?? Couuls that be Kristen??
    I always thought that Braden was Stephen…?!

    • Saraa April 18, 2010 at 10:27 am

      Stephen Colleti is Caleb!

  10. ashley petters September 30, 2009 at 8:04 pm

    jane – lauren
    scarlett – audrina only cause she had the pot head boy with a snake on his back
    madison – heidi
    gaby – stephanie
    branden – broody
    but i seriously just started and i hvae no idea tell me what you think because im deffinatley not set on these characters being the people i said and i also think that this is totally your opinion cause the only one thats really gonna know is of corse lauren .

    • Lauren Conrad fanatic October 10, 2010 at 2:17 pm

      scarlett is oooo Lo! first of all it says jane and scar have been friends since prek and so have lauren and lo….. audrina just met them because of the show and madison gets between scar and jane which if you watched the last season lauren was on she said that she stopped talking to lo for a while because of Heidi aka madison

  11. Tanzie October 3, 2009 at 10:26 pm

    here is what I though of the characters in the book.

    jane-lauren
    scarlett-audrina/heidi
    madison-whitney
    gaby-heidi

    • LoLaLa December 14, 2010 at 2:09 am

      No WAY is Madison Whitney. Whitney is WAY too sweet, she’s obviously Hannah. And Gaby. . . Audrina!

  12. Michelle October 24, 2009 at 4:09 pm

    Every time I was reading about Scarlett I pictured Audrina, mostly because of her appearance.

    • sam June 2, 2011 at 11:28 am

      Obviously scaerlett is audrina/ lo. She decribes hwer as slightly exotic with dark tastes which is the physaical side of audrina she then describes her as loyal and a brainiac which is all lo. Then there’s trhe scene with the chapaign in the new apartment… She did that with audrina. Caleb is def the georeous steven. Madison is for sure a siedi anmd spencer combined. Hannah is whitney braden is kyle and jessie is brody. Gaby is a mystery to me

      • Jenna August 6, 2011 at 5:18 am

        Jesse is more likely to be Jason than Brody, because of his alcoholism and poor treatment of Jane. That was Jason all over. My guess is that Jesse is a combination of Jason and Brody,

  13. Jess October 26, 2009 at 10:14 am

    I agree with these similarities, although Gaby must be Stephanie.

  14. hills November 3, 2009 at 10:36 pm

    seriously you dont know what you’re saying. its lauren’s personal info in the book. the characters are all act. you cant tell. tv and real life are different behaviour and communication.

  15. Katie November 18, 2009 at 7:53 am

    I think Scarlett is Lo and Audrina. As Lo I think part of their story is her and Lauren’s experience with Laguna Beach, and then her not being as into it as Lauren and going away to school…The Hill’s wasn’t Lauren’s first experience with this type of show so I think she mashed together both Laguna and The Hills. Especially since she was picked to star in Laguna and does the narration which would have pissed off Kristen. Lo is also intelligent and extremely witty. Lo also has kept her love life off camera the whole time.
    Scarlett relates to Audrina in that I don’t think she realized what she signed up for (in the beginning), her true personality and friends have never really been shown until recently- she is likes non-poppy music and is into tattoos….she also fits with the physical description especially being against the type of typical LA blondes.

    I think Madison is Heidi. Heidi and Lauren were “newish friends”- they didn’t meet until college when Lauren was already famous. Lauren obviously liked her enough to move in with her in LA but hindsight would prove maybe she shouldn’t have trusted her so much……I also think Jenny bunny fits in here too…..Lauren has stated that she came between her and Lo’s friendship but she also was dumb as rocks so maybe she fits with the Gaby character as well.

    Gaby could be a mixture of both Audrina and Stephanie….she does work in a job similar to Audrina’s and was picked in a similar fashion to be on the show to Audrina but I don’t think Audrina is that dumb or boring. Stephanie more so fits that. However there are more books to come so this character could evolve.

    As for the guys I was thinking Jesse being Brody/Jason and Briaden being Brody/Stephen/Kyle. At first I thought Jesse for Spencer but in the end he didn’t sell her out so now I am not sure….Spencer may not have made an appearance yet.

    Lisa Love fits Fiona Chen perfectly especially with those cheesy all important statements “are you ready for this challenge” that Jane makes o point of mocking.

    Hannah is so Whitney it’s not even worth Lauren denying that!

  16. Emmy December 26, 2009 at 8:27 am

    I agree with all your comments, and i am positive that Jesse is Brody. First I believed he was Braden, but when Jane kissed Jesse, i realized that he was Brody of the way he kissed her (yes i truly am a the hills-freak). He held both his hands in her face and Jane thought that he was the greatest kisser ever – just like brody. Great book anyway.

  17. lalaland December 27, 2009 at 10:20 am

    I think Scarlett is Audrina, with a mix of Lo. Scarlett has Audrina’s look with the long black hair. Everyone else on the Hills is pretty much blonde.

  18. pam December 29, 2009 at 7:25 am

    all i know is i watched the show every week when it came on and i’m soo confused with this book.

  19. anonymous December 29, 2009 at 11:08 am

    I think Lauren would be a little smarter than to identify a character based on their hair color. These people are also a combination of people she knows. Scarlett could be one of her friends that wasn’t even on the Hills. But Gaby is Audrina. There’s no love lost there. And Gaby’s IQ is borderline on moron, as is Audrinas.

  20. Lilly January 9, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    im confused about the character of scarlett? it seems like its audrina cause of laurens discription?

  21. stephanie January 18, 2010 at 7:15 pm

    The book is amazing! I think some of the people that are posting on this site need to remember that the stars of the hills are real people like all of us. lets stop with the rude comments of poor Audrina. everyone knows we would love to be them! at least I would. here is my list of the characters

    jane..lauren
    scarlet.. Lo
    madison..heidi or jen bunny
    i could see lauren leaving Heidi out completly As if she never existed.
    Gaby..stephanie
    hannah.. whitney
    caleb..stephen
    braden..brody because i love him!
    jesse..jason he was an ass to lauren at his bday party.

  22. Brandon February 3, 2010 at 11:01 pm

    Jane-Lauren
    Scarlett- Lauren, Lo, Audrina, Heidi
    Madison- SPENCER PRATT, maybe Kristen C.
    Gaby- Audrina, Stephenie
    Jesse- Brody, Jason
    Caleb- Stephan
    Braden- Kyle
    Hannah- Whitney

  23. maegan February 9, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    After reading the books and really figuring the character i believe that

    Jane- lauren
    Scarlett- heidi in the beginning but audrina’s looks with Lo’s friendship?
    braden- brody
    jesse- def jason!!!
    hannah- whitney
    Gaby- audrina

  24. Heather February 22, 2010 at 6:19 pm

    I love these books! I hope she keeps writing! So she has had me so confused about these characters. We all want to think Scarlett is Audrina because of the way she looks. But Lo went to UCLA like Scarlett, has been her friend since kindergarten, and has always kept her personal life off camera. But I CAN’T see Lo sleeping with randoms like Scarlett does. Also, Jesse is so obviously Jason- he’s an ass :] and has an alcohol problem. Here is what I think so far:

    Jane- Lauren
    Scarlett- Lo
    Gaby- Audrina
    Madison- Heidi
    Caleb- Stephen
    Braden-Kyle
    Jesse- Jason
    Fiona Chen- Lisa Love

    Hopefully book 3 will be out soon!

  25. Ellie March 7, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    Scarlett is AUDRINA!! Read this insert
    She told press that she was sunbathing and a guy came over to her. Audrina further explained,”We’ve had guys coming up to us and asking for our numbers so we just assumed he was one of those, but it was The Hills creator Adam DiVello and he started talking to us and said I had a great look and would I be interested in being in his show. When he mentioned it was reality TV, I was like, ‘No thank you, I’m not headed in that direction,’ but then he said it was more of a soap documentary and I thought, ‘Well, it would be a good experience and get me used to being in front of the camera, so why not?’ Five years later I’m still doing it.”

  26. t-la March 8, 2010 at 7:16 am

    Jane-Lauren
    Scarlett-Lo/Audrina(when they lived together)
    Madison-Heidi/Spencer
    Gaby- Stephanie
    Jesse- Mostly Jason with a little Brody thrown in to add confusion
    Caleb- Stephen
    Braden- Kyle
    Hannah- Whitney
    I think that Gaby, Scarlet, Madison, and partially Jesse are a collaboration of people probably because they have a more significant role in the story and she didn’t want them to have too much of a connection to actual people in her life.

    I think the voices of Jane, Hannah, Braden, and Caleb are clearly related to actual people in her life (Herself, Whitney, Kyle and Stephen respectively). This makes sense because their characters are mainly positive up to this point.

  27. Tbreezy March 15, 2010 at 5:22 am

    Jane-Lauren
    Scarlett-Lo/and the good old parts of heide(before spencer)
    Madison-the female spencer
    Gaby- Audrina
    Jesse- Jason because of the drinking problem, and yeah a little bit of brody in him.
    Caleb- That is a hard one, it could also be stephen.
    Braden- Stephen, he want to be a serious actor
    Hannah- Whitney

  28. Just read it April 5, 2010 at 2:38 am

    i think jane and scarlett are both lauren. different sides of her personality and responses to being on the show. instead of making one complex character she broke herself into two fairly simple characters. braden and jesse are like hybrids of brody, jason, and maybe kyle howard. and i think madison being spencer is a great guess. gaby is obvi audrina. hannah is def whitney. but idk who heidi is? maybe scarlett has a little lo and heidi in her in addition to lauren.

  29. Ashley April 6, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    Caleb- Stephen (Her old BF from Laguna Beach)
    There’s no way Braden is stephen.

    Laguna Beach- Santa Barbara

    Braden- Brody (He’s in LA! NOT STEPHEN. Stephen went off to college and never moved to LA)
    Willow- Kristen C.
    Jane- Lauren
    Jesse- Frankie…Brodys best friend
    Gaby- Audrina
    Madison- Heidi
    Hannah- Whitney
    Scarlett- HAS TO BE LO. They are the only 2 that have been friends their whole lives. She’s also the ONLY one that ever went to college. Heidi dropped out.
    Fiona Chen- Lisa Love. She is not as abrupt as Kelly Cutrone.
    Trevor Lord- MTV Producer

    She mixed up characters so that her book could follow in an order that would make since to us. She obviously got the spin off because producers already knew her name from LAGUNA BEACH. Aka a MTV show produced by the same people.

    Just because Jane kisses Jesse doesn’t mean its Brody. She is really close with Frankie in real life. What if she hooked up with him too?

    Steph Pratt didn’t come til way later. She may be in the 2nd book, but not in this one. I think that L.O disliked Heidi and Audrina anyways, they were the first two girls to get introduced. Steph was way last.

  31. bruce April 9, 2010 at 10:44 pm

    jane could be lauren and audrina, because lauren moved to la from her hometown and kristin tried to steal some spotlight from audrina.
    madison is heidi and kristin, cuhs she started the sick rumor about lauren and jason making inappropriate videotapes and kristin had attempted to steal…..
    hannah is whitney cuhs lauren met her through work.
    scar is heidi and lo cuhs lo couldnt get along with audrina at first and heidi says whatever’s on her mind.

  32. Stine April 27, 2010 at 8:08 pm

    i think that jane and scarlette are both based on lauren.
    like two different sides of her personality.

  33. bell May 2, 2010 at 4:23 am

    the ones that arent as obvious i think heidi and kristin cavalari could be madison cause when they are in the picture there is drama and they want camera attention like how cavalari came on the show.

  34. niki May 10, 2010 at 7:01 pm

    jane- lauren
    scarlett – lauren/old heidi

    • joe August 18, 2010 at 6:41 pm

      braden is camera shy, but brody isnt. Caleb is not jason because caleb doesnt drink to the point of no good, so he’s stephen.

  35. niki May 10, 2010 at 7:03 pm

    AND
    I don’t think that Lauren cares Kristin Cavallari.
    Kristin is not a character in her book…

  36. Ashley June 11, 2010 at 5:42 pm

    Don’t forget about Caleb! I think he’s supposed to be her old love Stephen from Laguna Beach.

  40. Rachel July 24, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    I agree with all of them except for Gaby and Scarlett. Im still not sure who Gaby is but i do not think she is Audrina. Also Lauren has stated that Scarlett is like another her. Between Jane and Scarlett they we’re Lauren’s two personalities about being on the show. Jane was more optimistic and enjoyed being on the show and Scarlett hates it and producers wouldnt let her real personality be shown.

  41. TFR July 27, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    well who is liam? I would love to know

  42. joe August 18, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    i wish liam was spencer, but spencer has never been a producer in his life, so i dont know.

  43. Lauren. August 25, 2010 at 7:23 pm

    all i know is audrina’s good looks definatly resembles scarlett how in the book they say she can throw a t shirt and jeans on and still look gorgeus. Also scarletts piercing green eyes remind me of audrina.

    will someone give me the physical appearances of the characters in L.A. Candy?

    • jjjjj August 29, 2010 at 9:54 am

      Jane – she’s just described as being blonde and pretty.
      Scarlett – brunette, tanned and stunning, like Audrina.
      Gaby – short brown hair
      Madison – tanned and blonde with giant boobs.

  46. madi October 23, 2010 at 12:43 pm

    whos the protagonist and antagonist of the story

    • Nicole October 23, 2010 at 3:19 pm

      jane is definitely the protagonist, madison the antagonist

  47. Nicky October 26, 2010 at 6:55 pm

    Ok I don’t think any of these characters are personally attatched to the real life characters. Lauren has said that herself. The only one that would be for sure is Jane, she is Lauren. I think she purposely put traits into the characters in the book to make it close to her reality but I really don’t think each one represents a specific character. If I had to pick I would say:

    Jane-Lauren because she is the star and she has said it herself that she relates to that character
    Scarlett- Lo and Audrina mixed together from her laguna beach days and the hills
    Gaby- I’m really not sure about but maybe jen bunney or possibly Stephanie but Stephanie came way later so that one is iffy
    Madison- definatley Heidi because of the whole scandal thing
    Caleb- I think Stephen colletti because they used to be together and he went off to college and he came back for a few episodes and she realized they weren’t meant for each other
    Braden- Brody because the feelings she had for him and again realized they weren’t meant for each other.
    Jesse- Jason because of the yo-yo attitude he has and the drinking

    That would be my guess on the characters

    • Nicky October 26, 2010 at 7:26 pm

      Oh and Hannah is definatley Whitney

  48. Romy Leitch November 24, 2010 at 5:08 am

    Braden is totally Jason! and Jesse is Brody

  49. Leah December 13, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    You forgot Caleb, Caleb is Stephen! Naveed could be Talen or something. This list is great, only thing I would change is Scarlett has a little bit of Audrina too.

  50. raystar89 December 31, 2010 at 2:49 pm

    I thought for awhile that Jesse looked too similar like Justin Bobby…just sayin

  51. Hazel January 9, 2011 at 10:35 am

    Jane-Lauren
    Scarlett-I think Lauren creates Scarlett as some character with a mix of all of her friends that came and went, (old Heidi, Audrina, and Lo)
    Madison-THE CHANGED Heidi
    Gaby-Stephanie
    Hannah-Whitney
    Jesse-Jason
    Caleb-Stephen Colletti
    Braden-Brody

  52. allie January 30, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    Gaby- Heidi is also like Gaby because towards the end of the book Gaby gets a bunch of ridiculous plastic surgery like Heidi. Also who is Madison’s sister?

    • Anonymous July 14, 2013 at 8:24 am

      Maby Holly, Heidi’s sister. I’m sorry, but Holly isn’t as ‘strikingly beautiful’ as Sofia is described in the book. But like Sofia she also want’s her moment in the spotlight.

  53. lin February 4, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    Jane & Scarlett – both Lauren or maybe is Scarlett a mix of Laurens friends ;
    (Lo – friends since their childhood, smart girl; went to UCLA,
    Audrina – pretty, dark hair and the casual clothes,
    Heidi – roommate and co-star)

    Gaby – Jen Bunny. At first I thought that Gaby was Audrina, but I don’t think Audrina is that dumb.
    Madison – She must be the female Spencer Pratt
    Hannah – Whitney
    Jesse – Jason with the alcohol and being mean to her when he’s drunk and Brody with the whole fame/hollywood-boy thing.
    Braden – Kyle?

  54. Liza March 9, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    I think youre right

  55. Lindsay April 7, 2011 at 3:17 pm

    i can’t even read these books because like this article said, i spend the entire time trying to assign these characters to the real girls lol.

  56. Skylar June 20, 2011 at 4:43 am

    I always got the impression that Diego was Perez Hilton for some reason and that Liam was Justin Bobby. Because of this I thought Scarlet was Audrina with Lo’s friendship background. In later books Lo’s appearance was similar to Gaby’s. Sophie is definately Heidi’s sister mixed with Kristin. Madison is Heidi with some of Spencer’s manipulation.

  57. Anonymous September 30, 2011 at 8:19 am

    I didnt read all the comments but i cant help but see resemblence of jen bunny (on of lc’s friends from laguna) in gaby.

  58. whatever June 8, 2012 at 9:15 am

    Jen is Madison, Lo is Scarlett and Lauren is Jane because Jen/Madison is the reason for the rift between Lo/Scarlett and Lauren/Jane

  59. Anonymous September 6, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    Just reading this now so dont have all the pieces but I swore Scarlett was leaning towards Jen Bunney.. the physical description… the friends since 5 years old, the love of men/attention & I always heard she had fed Spencer all the info he needed in reference to the Lauren scandal. I had also heard at one point that Laguna was originally supposed to be more focused on a Jen Bunney & she’s been kind of resentful since. Like I said though, only half way through the 1st book so that theory could be proven wrong soon.

    Ovbiousley Caleb is Jason. Since he was her high school boyfriend, and he cheated on Lauren, as Caleb did in the book. Caleb is described as camera-loving, Jason seems the same way.

  63. Anonymous July 28, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    what about Caleb??? has everyone forgotten about him?! I think Caleb could be Steven from Laguna…tboughts?!
