Kaitlynn Carter Talks Life After Miley Cyrus

April 17, 2020 / Posted by:

Before last summer, if you asked me who Kaitlynn Carter was, I’d have replied, “Agent Carter, yep, loved the show, canceled too soon”. But then The Hills: New Beginnings happened (we all watched, right? LOL JK), and the name Brody Jenner was back on everybody’s lips. And Miley Cyrus left Liam Hemsworth.

And who was the former Mrs. Hemsworth immediately caught making out with? Kaitlynn Carter, who had recently split with her (kinda) husband, Brody. In true hot rebound fashion, their love only lasted a month, and Miley soon moved on to Cody Simpson (she’s just being Miley!).

But where did that leave Summer 2019 It-girl Kaitlynn? The people wanted to know! For real, they were foaming at the mouth for updates (unless those were just corona-symptoms). Luckily, Kaitlynn answered our prayers by doing an Instagram Live with her Hills co-star Whitney Port, and discussed life post-Miley.

via People:

“What happened to me, basically just after Miley and I went our separate ways, I thought, ‘Okay, my life’s just kinda going back to the way it normally was for me when I’m on my own,’ ” Carter recalled. “I had no expectations that anyone would give a s— about me by myself. I had no plan in place. I didn’t think about anything.”

Of course, that wasn’t the case, especially since she and Cyrus’ romance began just as her relationship with Brody Jenner wrapped up. Carter explained that when she went out to visit a friend’s bar, she was surprised to see paparazzi following her — and even more shocked when headlines the next day claimed she was “out on the town, partying with a mystery man just two weeks after her breakup.”

“I just didn’t anticipate anything like this happening,” the reality star said. “I’m used to it when I’m, like, with Brody or when I was with her, but never when I’m on my own. My mind is just swirling.”

“I was just so mortified,” Carter added. “The narrative was so not what the actual situation was and that was such a wake-up call for me.”

Ah, yes. The wake-up call that if you bang attention-ho celebrities and appear on reality shows, the media may actually mistake you for someone worth paying attention to (I mean, hey, I’m writing about her).

Kaitlynn went on to say that she had been “naive”, and made the decision to take control of her public image.

“I had never thought about what my narrative even was or what it was going to be,” she said. “I had always gone with the flow or whatever people say they say, I don’t care.”

“In relationships especially, I have always taken a back seat a little bit and sort of trusted the person I’m with to run the show, especially publicly because it’s never really been something that I wanted,” Carter continued. “I never really wanted to put myself out there that way.”

Here’s the actual video. Kaitlynn gets into the Miley shit around the 37:00 mark:

31-year-old Kaitlynn told People in January that she’s on good terms with both Miley and Brody (they share dogs). But let’s flashback to even happier times. When the rebound lovebirds tongued for the paps in Italy immediately after Miley announced her split from Liam. Sigh. This is the true Call Me By Your Name sequel.
