Fans of Laguna Beach likely remember Murrel as Kristin Cavallari‘s friend “Alex M.,” who was following her dream of becoming a singer and also caught up in the infamous Jason-Jessica-Alex love triangle during season 2.

Murrell is still close to her Laguna Beach family. Last October, she shared a romantic shot from friend Taylor Cole‘s wedding.

Murrell isn’t the only Laguna BeachHills star who is expecting. Audrina Patridge revealed in December that she is pregnant with her first child with fiancΓ© Corey Bohan.

I did not recognize her with her new nose and chin

She looks so different! I’m surprised People even wrote an article about her. Is it 2004 again and I didn’t realize it?

Nicole on

Woah! Why did they include an old pic? Now we can see just how much work she had done. She’s pretty now… It’s sad really but whatever makes the girl happy. Clearly she had the $ for it.

I’m embarrassed I clicked. I binge watched the series awhile back and do not recognize her at all lol

Must be another very slow news day People.

I watched every episode of Laguna and I still don’t know who we’re talking about. Is it the girl the blue top in the uncaptioned photo, only with a new face?

guest on

Who?

Julesy on

Yes, the girl in the blue top is Alex Murrel. I don’t think it’s so much as her face changed because one view is frontal and the other is a side profile, so it’s hard to tell the difference. Although with the change in hair color from brunette to ombre blonde, she does appear as a totally different person. The blondish two-toned hair looks awful!

This person is and was not a star.

I have never heard about them. Congrats anyway.

Wow she had a lot of surgery! I’m sure being picked apart for every flaw being on tv as a teen didn’t help. Sad that she caved to that pressure. For those saying it’s the side angle etc … Eh there are pics of her full face and she has def lost weight had extensive plastic surgery.

Congrats to the happy couple.
