Lauren Conrad ink’s a 3 book deal!

Posted by:

She’s already a reality star and a fashion designer, but Lauren Conrad is adding another title to her crowded resume: Author.

Conrad, 22, has signed on to write a three-book series of young adult fiction for HarperCollins, the publisher tells PEOPLE. The books – the first of which is scheduled to hit shelves in the summer of 2009 – will be loosely inspired by Conrad’s own experience going from an ordinary teen to a reality TV star.

“It’s definitely influenced by my own life,” Conrad tells PEOPLE. “The books are about a girl who moves to L.A. and stars in a reality show, so obviously there are some similarities.”

So will Hills costars like Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt or Brody Jenner wind up as in Conrad’s series? Not exactly. “I’m not trying to do a fictional story based on all my friends in my real life because their stories aren’t really mine to tell,” says Conrad, who has gone through many dramas on her MTV show. “Some of the characters may symbolize people in my life, but it is in no way calling anyone out.”

Conrad’s best gal pal and The Hills costar Lauren Bosworth has already been offering advice. “I run ideas by Lo and I’ll ask for her opinion because I value my friends’ opinions,” says the budding author, who has completed the outline for the first book.

But not everyone in Conrad’s life has been clued in to her plans to pen a series. “Honestly I haven’t told everyone,” she admits. “I’ve told my best friends and they have all been really supportive. Nobody was worried.”

Audrina Patridge blogs on her make up with Lauren

Posted by:

Audrina Patridge

If you caught last night’s episode of “The Hills,” you saw roomies Audrina Patridge and Lauren Conrad’s touching reconciliation. What did Audrina really think of their reunion? Well, she’s blogging about it today to let us know!

“Last night’s episode of ‘The Hills’ was intense,” she writes. “I think that’s the third time I’ve cried so far on the show!!! Haha! I’m so glad Lauren and I had that talk.”

Why the need for such a sit-down? Audrina blogs, “There were a lot of little things that just kept adding to the tension. The new living situation, the new friend/roomie, the rumors you read and hear about in magazines and on gossip sites, moving on in the industry on my own, the whole flirtyness with certain someones that was uncalled for, and only being a true friend when it was called for were all building up. It was these and many other things that kept adding to the fire, and eventually led to the breakdown which included tears and big decisions.”

Now that she and Lauren are back on good terms, Audrina has high hopes for the latest season of her MTV hit show, “I feel that in the fourth season things have changed so much and continue to keep changing. It’s going to be a good season, don’t you think? :)”

Beyonce says she’s opening doors for black women

Posted by:

Beyonce

Beyonce Knowles is proud of her black heritage and she hopes her fame will help “open doors” for other African-Americans who want to get into showbusiness.

The former Destiny’s Child star is convinced the entertainment industry is starting to embrace more people from ethnic backgrounds – but she still hopes progress will be made.

She tells Marie Claire, “I don’t think it’s because there aren’t any (talented African-American performers). It’s just going to take a second for people to acknowledge all of them. We’re getting there. But I see a lot of powerful, talented African-American or black women all the time. I am really proud that I am one of the artists that has the opportunity to be on magazine covers and to be in the movies. And I do think that I’m opening doors for more black women, just like Halle (Berry) and Diana Ross opened doors for me.”

Lynne Spears: ‘I’m not a pushy mother’

Lynne Spears

Britney Spears’ mother Lynne has blasted her image as a “pushy stage mother” and insisted she never wanted her daughter to be a superstar.

Spears senior has been accused of driving Britney’s career – starting with her big break on Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club. But Lynne insists the 26-year-old pushed herself from a young age.

She writes in her forthcoming book Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, “Britney was always highly motivated to excel. I’m always startled when I hear folks think I’m a pushy stage mother. I simply did not have the huge ambitions for her that I have been accused of having.”
