Kristin Cavallari Reveals Bafflingly Low Amount She Was Paid For Laguna Beach’s First Season, But Says She Would Have 'Done It For Free'

  Kristin Cavallari Reveals Bafflingly Low Amount She Was Paid For Laguna Beach’s First Season, But Says She Would Have 'Done It For Free' Kristin Cavallari divulged the size of the paycheck she received as a teenager on Laguna Beach, and yeah, that's pretty small.MTV and the cast of Laguna Beach could only have dreamed of what the show would become, airing for three seasons and spawning a spinoff — The Hills — that aired for another six, while launching the careers of a number of young actors and entrepreneurs. Before that success happened, though, the salary awarded to Kristin Cavallari (and possibly her co-stars) for her first season was pretty modest, even outside of upscale SoCal standards.

A stern warning has been issued to those frequenting a popular attraction less than one hour from the capital. People will be unable to park at Frensham Great Pond and Common or Frensham sailing club - both in Surrey - and people have been told to avoid the area, reports SurreyLive.

On Wednesday (July 27), Waverley Police tweeted: "Please be aware that the car parks at Frensham Pond sailing club and Frensham Great Pond and Common are closed until further notice and we advise people to avoid the area." The warning comes as firefighters continue to combat an inferno on Hankley Common after it went ablaze last Sunday (July 24), with smoke being seen as far as Wembley.

A helicopter was used on Wednesday to mitigate the spread of the fire and water is being collected by firefighters at Frensham Pond. The fire on Sunday resulted in Surrey's fire service declaring the blaze a "major incident". At its height, 19 fire crews were battling the fire across the heathland. That was later scaled back, but drone images and an aerial photo captured the trail of smoke that had engulfed the west of the county.

Motorists blast Sadiq Khan over plans to expand ULEZ and slap drivers with £12 charge OUTSIDE London

  Motorists blast Sadiq Khan over plans to expand ULEZ and slap drivers with £12 charge OUTSIDE London Transport for London (TfL) is consulting on expanding the ULEZ to cover the whole of Greater London - including Bromley, Wembley, Croydon and Ealing - from August next year. However, families who live in Dartford and travel into neighbouring Bexley will be forced to fork out the 'unavoidable' £12.50-a-day to drive in the ULEZ, placing an extra burden on households amid the cost of living crisis. One homeowner said he would face paying £12 to travel from his home in Dartford to Sainsbury's in Crayford - which is only one mile away.

Thorpe Park published a tweet after a visitor said the theme park was "covered" in smoke while another said they could "barely breathe". In response, Thorpe Park said: "We were made aware of a fire on Hankley Common which has been declared as a major incident. We believe this was the source of the smell and smoke at the resort today. The land surrounding Thorpe Park has been checked and will continue to be monitored."

Residents living on a road that borders Hankley Common were allowed to return to their homes on Tuesday (July 26) after being evacuated. The 1,400 acre nature reserve in Elstead near Farnham, is owned by the Ministry of Defence and is part of the Thursley, Hankley and Frensham Commons Special Area of Conservation, Special Protection Area and Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The popular beauty spot is one of the county's most famous locations and a hotspot for film crews, with blockbusters such as James Bond Skyfall, First World War epic 1917, and Black Widow all being shot there.
