Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Lauren Conrad Is Moving On


“What they didn’t get is that I didn’t want to fight with her anymore. It’s hard to look at somebody who used to be your best friend and say, ‘We can’t be friends. Too much has happened.’ I’m trying to move on, but they won’t let me. And when someone keeps pushing you into the same position well … you get upset.”

That’s Lauren Conrad, in the July issue of Cosmopolitan, discussing how The Hills producers pressured her to make up with ex-BFF Heidi Montag. Lauren has since quit her gig on the show. “I’ve always had another season to look forward to, but now life is a little more unplanned,” she says. “It’s really exciting.”

She’s all settled in with her real-life boyfriend, Kyle Howard. “I feel sexiest with him when I’m in sweatpants and no make-up,” she says.

Ya know what? I want to give big, big props to Lauren. She’s really done what every celebrity talks about doing but never actually does: She walked away from it all. I mean, granted, she’s still on the cover of Cosmo, but she really, truly stood up and said “I don’t want the cameras following me any more. I’m over it. I’m leaving.” That’s a hard thing to do, to walk away from the spotlight, to ask to live a life just like anyone else’s, especially when your arch-enemies — people like Heidi & Spencer and Kristin Cavallari — are happy to step into the spot you left behind. What Lauren did took a lot of strength and courage. I just think she deserves to be commended on that.

    • IDK.. as a guy, I always read about how beautiful women as just as insecure as everyone else. So if after a guy has gotten you and makes you feel that without the makeup and clothes you’re still a hottie, then I can see how she would feel sexier. Either way, LC is a friggin hottie

  • I am impressed too- unfortunately though a good example like her is no longer on TV now the bitches will only be representing- I hope females take Lauren’s example and not any of the other girls.

  • Not that I blame her for walking away from 10k a week just to not have to ever see spiedi again, I don’t know how she hung on as long as she did. I don’t actually know how Spenser hasn’t been shiv’d to death by now, but I don’t think there is a soul who doesn’t understand the decision to never want to see either of those ghastly people again.

    It will be interesting to see if she can pull off another career out of the tripe she’s been involved with. I mean if non verbal, ceiling eyes got another gig, I guess there is hope for Lauren. She seems to be able to walk and breathe at the same time, and I am not so sure than ceiling eyes can say the same.

  • i liked lauren the first season and then as it when on i disliked her soooo much. it just seemed like everything is about her. like everyone does HER wrong and she is just a saint or something. i don’t buy it. i think that she is a spoiled bitch and just didnt get what she wanted or thinks that her clothing line is gonna do better with herself off the show.

  • I love Lauren! I feel like deep down she has a good heart and good intentions about everything that we see her do. She tries to give people second chances in the hopes that they will see how she is extending herself for them. Anyone that doesn’t like Lauren just doesn’t like nice girls.

  • She hasn’t ‘walked away from it all.’ She walked away from The Hills but that doesn’t mean she isn’t going to try to find some other way to extend her 15 minutes. Just like how she is on Cosmo. Now if we could only get the other fame whores on that show to follow in her footsteps…

    • Definitely.

      Commend her on her efforts? Honsetly Beet you boggle my mind.

      Its ridiculous you’re praising her from walking away from a show. First off, its not like its the first season and she was exposed to it and decided to be the bigger person. ITS THE 5TH GOD DAMN SEASON. Took a while, no?

  • Sheesh, she was on the cover just the other day…. the… what was it…
    Hold on! errr
    November or December issue.
