Lauren Conrad Has a Book Deal and You Don’t

Sigh.

LC just landed a three-book deal with HarperCollins to pen a young adult fiction series called LA Candy.

The series tells “the behind-the scenes story of a young girl who moves to L.A. and unexpectedly becomes the star of a reality television show,” according to a press release. “The character soon realizes that “everyone wants something from her, and nothing is what it appears to be,” the release states.

And of course now Lauren’s being all like “I care about books!” She says: “I’ve always loved books that I could lose myself in, ones that would transport me to another place, but had characters I could relate to. I’m so excited to have this opportunity to write books like that for other readers.”

How much you wanna bet Lauren won’t even end up reading this book before it hits stores? Because we all know she won’t be writing it.

Says the senior VP of Fiction at HarperCollins: “We’re bracing ourselves for a blockbuster publication.”

You know what, though? It could be worse. It could be Heidi with the book deal. I guess this is alright in comparison.

What Do We Think of Lauren Conrad’s New Collection?

LC just released the fall collection for her line, Lauren Conrad.

A lot of these pieces are super-cute … if you’re a size 2. And with prices hovering around the $200 mark, you may be better off just saving up for lipo if you’re much bigger than that.

Okay Jimmy Kimmel Just Regained a Tiny Bit of My Respect

As much as I hate Jimmy Kimmel — and I can’t even quite recall why anymore, but I’m certain I do — I have to give him some props for this hilarious interview with Lauren Conrad.

Just start around 4:05 and don’t stop until it’s over. Honestly. Don’t stop until it ends. You have to watch the clip of The Hills they run at the very end. The whole thing is LOL-tastic.

Here’s a spoiler: Jimmy forces her to watch one of Heidi Montag’s music videos.

Photos from The Hills Premiere Party, In Case You Care

You know, every now and then, something will happen that reminds me that I’m getting more mature. Like, I’ll carry the trash bag all the way to the trash chute, instead of just setting it in the hall outside my apartment and trusting that someone else will get so sick of the smell that they’ll take it to the trash chute for me. When I tell people I’m going to the gym later this afternoon, it’s the truth. When my cats are crying because they’re hungry at 6:30 in the morning, I get out of bed and give them food, rather than grabbing the water gun off the bed stand and shooting at them until they shut up. And, in the ultimate proof that I am becoming a full-fledged adult, I no longer care about The Hills. It’s true. I don’t watch it and I don’t want to. Every now and then I get a little pang of guilt about it, but it quickly passes. I really didn’t care at all about The Hills‘ season premiere on Monday and I’m not afraid to admit it.

But here are the pictures. Because I don’t think I’ll ever get old enough that I don’t want to look at other people’s dresses.

Also: Did Heidi get her lips done recently? Yes or no?

Quotables

“I like watching other people get gossiped about. It makes me feel better.”

Lauren Conrad, on her penchant for watching Gossip Girl. She also insists she’s still single.

“My love life is an absolute trainwreck,” she says. “And half of my friends are guys…It’s kind of embarrassing, because you’re out with a group of friends and the next day it says you’re dating one of them and lap dancing, too. You have to say, ‘You know, I’m sorry, but that kind of comes with the territory.’”

Lauren Conrad Is Totally Emmy Material

Heh.

It looks like Lauren Conrad will be at a presenter at this year’s Emmy awards.

No, wait, it gets worse.

The models who hand out the awards?

Will be wearing dresses from Lauren’s clothing line.

Heidi and Spencer must be furious.

But I can live with this, as long as Lauren Conrad does not, at any point, actually win an Emmy. I mean, do you think she could submit herself for Best Costume Director for her work on The Hills?
