On the vacation to Cabo, I wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time in years. Usually I’m just petrified. A couple of years ago someone zoomed in on my cellulite and it was so mean. I took it really personally. I haven’t worn a bathing suit in L.A. in years because of that.

One of my biggest goals, especially with writing YA novels, is just to have people enjoy reading. I remember being in high school and it was so forced because everything I read through most of school was assigned reading. I love the idea of giving girls a book that they can read and enjoy reading.

It’s the idea of creating your own glamour. The focus will be on really great fits, fabrics, and details. It won’t be overly trendy, nothing that’s trying too hard. I’m very excited about it, but I’m also a little nervous. I’m doing it all on my own this time.
Conrad releases Sugar and Spice, her third and final trilogy novel, which follows Jane Roberts from the opening night of her reality show through her realizations of good and bad relationships she has fostered throughout the series.
The first book was the most difficult to write as I was new to the process and there are so many writes and rewrites etc. Not to say book 2 and 3 were easy but they were more enjoyable as I could be creative rather than setting up characters.
Conrad appears on the cover of the March 2010 issue of Seventeen magazine. She talks about The Hills launching her career and about a rumour that her boyfriend didn’t want to be on The Hills.
False. It never even came up, because by the time I met Kyle, I had already perfected my ‘double life.’ There was my TV life and my real life. Most of my closest friends were never on the show; my family was rarely on. I think it’s better that way. It’s not normal to put every part of your personal life on camera. You have to have something for yourself or you’ll go crazy.

The first book was a learning experience. I had to learn the whole process and I think I also had to learn to schedule writing time for myself. I had lived my life for years on a schedule and this was the first time where I would have full days to write. It was also teaching myself how to do that. Everything was very new to me. The second time around, I had a better idea of how it was done.

I didn’t take anything specifically that happened to me. The only thing that I did was … it was a way to show not necessarily me but just the other side of being on a show like ours. For everyone that’s done it I think you see one side and you don’t see the other. It’s kind of an interesting story to tell.

The Hills will bring in Kristin Cavallari as the main character to replace Conrad.
It’s bittersweet. I’ve spent the last five years making every decision be about the show. People I date have to be able to film, the places I work have to let us film and the places I live have to have set lighting. I’m ready to do things on my own. I loved doing it and had so much fun, but it came to a point where I had done it long enough.
Conrad voices herself as a character on Family Guy. In the episode character Brian—voiced by Seth MacFarlane—picks up Conrad’s character and thinks that she might be his soulmate.

I don’t want to act. I tried it. … I don’t enjoy it, and I can’t make a career out of something I don’t really like. It’s not that fun, and I’m not that good at it.
Conrad stars in MTV reality television series The Hills. The Hills is a follow up to the series Laguna Beach MTV aired through 2006. The series follows old characters from Laguna Beach like Lo Bosworth and introduces new cast members including Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port.
The Hills is filmed exactly the same as Laguna. So when people started picking out these very little things, it was weird to me because anyone who has worked on a reality show knows how they’re filmed.
Conrad stars in MTV reality television series Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. The series follows Conrad and a group of her friends and classmates of Laguna Beach High School for three seasons. Other than Conrad the show’s main characters include Stephen Colletti, Kristin Cavallari and Lo Bosworth.
It was just a big group of friends being themselves. I think it’s impossible to do that in this day and age of reality TV.

Conrad began her interest in fashion throughout her childhood. Conrad’s father says that Conrad wasn’t the best student, but that he could see that she had an interest in fashion early in her life.
Lauren wasn’t a great student—she wasn’t that interested. We figured out along the way that she was an artist and her real love was fashion.
I think that I get bored easily with things.
