Lauren Conrad lands a 3-book deal!

When it comes to writing with flair and being a top-selling author, Lauren Conrad makes it look so easy. The reality star’s debut teen novel, L.A. Candy, was No. 1 on a New York Times bestseller list.

And that was just the beginning for LC… because she just landed a three-book deal with HarpercCollins!

Called The Fame Game, the Hills alum’s upcoming trilogy is set in the reality TV universe, and features Madison Parker, an ambitious, ruthless character from the L.A. Candy series who’s ready to become a star in her own right. In her way? Backstabbing family friends, dogged paparazzi and one media scandal after the next!

“We took the mean girl of the [L.A. Candy books], spinning her off,” Conrad, 25, tells Us of The Fame Game‘s tough protagonist Madison.

“This series is about a girl who loves everything that fame is, and that’s all she’s ever really wanted,” Conrad explains. “[Madison] has fun with the press, she enjoys the attention, she welcomes scandal!”

If Madison sounds familiar (Heidi Montag, perhaps?), Conrad assures Us her characters aren’t based on anyone real. “No. We have fun with it! We kind of take [Hollywood] stereotypes.

With a clothing empire to run as well (her third line debuts this fall), when does Conrad write?

“Between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m.,” Conrad tells Us. “My phone doesn’t ring, and there’s nothing on TV!”

Is Conrad’s longtime beau, actor Kyle Howard, an L.A. Candy devotee? “He read my first book, which was very sweet,” Conrad says, laughing. “I told him he didn’t have to read the rest. “I don’t think he’s the target market!”

The paperback edition of Conrad’s third L.A. Candy book, Sugar and Spice, goes on sale Tuesday.

Lauren Conrad leaves Voyeur nightclub upset!

Lauren Conrad and some friends party at Voyeur club in West Hollywood, Calif., last night (March 10th). Something must have been wrong because Lauren leaves the club with a sour face and a whiny attitude.

Poor LC!

Boy troubles again? Didn’t get the table and bottle service you wanted? Another girl wear your outfit?

I wonder what happened!

Lauren Conrad’s TV show – dropped by MTV – being picked up by another network!

Even though MTV dropped Lauren Conrad’s new TV show after they deemed it too “high brow”, looks like it might not be the end after all! The 25-year-old tells US that she’s getting offers from other networks!

“The amount of offers I’ve gotten has been very flattering,” Conrad told Us while celebrating her birthday at Pure nightclub in Las Vegas Saturday. “We all worked really hard on it and I’m really proud of it. It turned out fantastic, so stay tuned.”

MTV wasn’t interested in the show, because it focused too much on her fashion line – and not so much on drama (which MTV shows thrive on).

In the meantime, Lauren is focusing on her line, Paper Crown.

“We just got our look book and we’re going to Coterie in about a week, so we’re very excited about that,” she said. “Things are going really great. I’m running it with my best friends. It’s a really fun project.”

BREAKING: Lauren Conrad’s new MTV show PULLED for being too “high brow”!

Apparently the new reality show that Lauren Conrad has been busy filming for MTV has just been axed – due to the “high brow” content. Lauren wanted a show about her career – MTV wanted a show about Lauren.

This just in from The Hollywood Reporter:

Lauren Conrad’s upcoming MTV reality show has been pulled, the fashion designer tells The Hollywood Reporter.

“We sold a show to MTV, filmed it and are really proud of the final result,” she tells THR. “MTV felt the subject matter was too high brow for their audience and offered me the opportunity to change the show by incorporating more of my personal life.”

The show was to follow her as she creates a line of evening wear and launches her label.

“We agreed going into the project that this show would be an aspirational one, focusing on my career and my goals and not my personal relationships,” Conrad tells THR. “We delivered the show that we sold and are sorry MTV didn’t feel their viewers were savvy enough to appreciate it.”

What’s your take? Would you have liked seeing a show about Lauren and her career? Or are you more interested in the drama? Whitney Port’s show “The City” was a show about Whitney’s fashion line – and that show was canceled.  Guess MTV wasn’t interested in a repeat?
