Lauren Conrad is all smiles as she proudly does double duty book promotion in NYC, at Barnes &Nobel where the former cast member of “The Hills” promoted “Style” and “LA Candy”.
During yesterday’s book signing, Lauren spoke with MTV about her new reality show, which she promises will be much different than anything she’s done before.
“Well, I never was completely done with reality. It was just reality based on my personal life,” she told MTV News on Tuesday evening in New York City. Conrad held a book signing for her two latest efforts, her final “L.A. Candy” novel, “Sugar and Spice,” and her aptly titled style manual, “Style.” “So this time around I’m involved with producing,” she continued. “I love the style they want to film it in.”
Of course, the biggest change fans will notice is that instead of giving viewers a peek into her personal life, Conrad will document the challenges of starting up a fashion line from scratch. “It’s focusing on my career and all the things that I love to do,” she said. “So I think it’ll be a very different show. So that’ll be nice.”
And going back into production means that Conrad will also get the chance to work with some familiar faces. “I’m excited because I get to work with some of my old crew, which is really cool,” she dished. “I haven’t gotten to see them in a while because they’re all very busy people, but hopefully I’m going to get some familiar faces. I already have a couple of the guys from ‘The Hills.’ ”
When the show was announced late last month, the reality TV darling gushed about returning to the network. “I am so excited to be rejoining the MTV family,” she said. “The new project will follow me as I develop my new contemporary line and also touch on my other businesses.”
Lauren Conrad confirmed this morning on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show that she’ll be returning to MTV in her own reality show.
The 24-year-old wouldn’t give many details. “It’ll be something very different,” the fashion designer said on Seacrest’s KIIS-FM radio show, adding that the show would follow her “career.”
She told Seacrest she’ll likely begin shooting soon. “If I was going to do a reality show, it’ll probably start in October,” she said.
Tired of being in the public eye constantly, Conrad quit The Hills in 2009. But, she said she’s been wanting to do reality again lately.
“I’ve always been open to doing reality again,” she said. “Just under different circumstances. As long as you have a separation, then it works. You have your personal life and you have work life; when it’s combined, it’s difficult.”
An official MTV announcement will come out next week, she said.
Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried and Lauren Conrad all help celebrate the 25th anniversary of ELLE Magazine. The magazine profiles 25 women under 25 and there are four different covers which feature Lauren Conrad, Amanda Seyfried, Megan Fox, and Gabourey Sidibe.
I love each of these covers! Amanda Seyfried is adorable!
On being married: “When I talk about my husband [Brian Austin Green], I feel as if people roll their eyes. It’s like when you’re 16 and order a martini, and the waiter says, ‘Do you think I’m stupid?’ They can’t grasp that I’m old enough to be married.”
Best part of being in her twenties: “It’s your time to be selfish; you still have freedom.”
Where she thought she’d be now: “I was never that girl who just wanted babies. I wanted a career before all of that.”
What are the best and worst things about turning 25? “The best thing is, I’m happy. The worst is that I’m scared; the scariest thing is that I know it can’t be easy—the years to come.”
On celebrating her twenty-fifth birthday: “Part of me thought it would be weird if people knew I was a grown-up playing a teenager in Precious. So I had a twenty-first-birthday party. We had drinks and went to a strip club called Shotgun Willie’s.”
